MAXIMUM HALO

The best Halo ever, and yes, playing on Heroic IS the way to play.  Legendary is just stupid hard, like taking a bumpy bus ride wearing underwear full of drawing pins - some might like it but most will find it uncomfortable to say the least.   
 
Only on the very last level did I find Reach start to get a bit samey (What, another wave of even tougher covenant?) but the graphics, story, cut-scenes and panache mark this out as the the definitive HALO.  I just wish my 5.1 sound system didn't drown out some of the dialog :( 
 
It made me reminisce enough to fork out 1200 points on HaloCE;  It's all there too in the original, but not enough to get me to play it to the end for the umpteenth time; like a drunken kiss with an ex girlfriend at a party, it was fun, but not as good as my latest squeeze, REACH.
  
Thanks Bungie. It's been fun W 
What will 343 do? Maybe find those lost Spartans that Mendez went off to train?

    Halo: Reach is kind of the Empire Stikes Back of the Halo franchise. I'm not saying it's the best one, because it's not. I'm saying this because of the tone. Halo: Reach is the story planet Reach, and the war that destroyed it. It's a story filled with death, depressive scenes and little hope. And yes, despite all this, this is a Halo game, and a pretty darn good one too.  Game is split into a variety of modes but three stand out the most: the Campagne, the gigantic, deeper than the ocean Multip...
