Remember Reach. Begin the Fight. 0

Before we began our journey as the quiet and deadly Master Chief, Spartans were almost as common as the marines of the UNSC. They formed Elite squads that were ready for anything, but the Covenant proved to be more prepared and unleashed an all-attack on the planet Reach. Step into the shoes of Noble 6 and fight alongside the Spartans in Bungie’s last hoorah with Halo. If you could only buy one FPS this year, it would be hard not to recommend Reach. Bungie has given us plenty of reasons to pop i...

Halo Reach is a slick shooter and is a lot of fun 0

Its odd to say that but Reach doesnt really redefine anything it is still just such a good experience. Everything the game does from its campaign, multiplayer and Firefight mode are very well done. For the most part this is a Halo game that doesnt break too far from the mold. The Campaign has great AI, the multiplayer is a blast with friends and FIrefight is as fun as ever. But all 3 of these elements really blend well together to truly give you more mileage for your money            If you don'...

Bungie has improved Halo in almost every way 0

So like I do with every game I started with the campaign for Reach. One awesome thing you'll find about the campaign from the get go is that your customized Spartan will be the guy you play as in campaign which will appear in the cinematics. For this though you pay the price by having a less interesting character as the rest of the cast whom are perfectly comfortable taking of their helmets and expressing their opinions. Clearly this was done so the player could more easily project themselves on...

Halo's Newest Entry Gets a Classic Reboot 0

Overview : Another amazing Halo experience in the long line of successful first-person shooters, a return to what made the original Halo so great. Obviously one of the most anticipated games for 2010, Halo: Reach has big financial shoes to fill as well as satisfying the almost insurmountable level of expectations fans of the series have.  After the first Halo brought the first person shooter genre to the home console and showed how successful their formula could be, the second and third halo’s ...

Dimishing Groundhog Days 0

In certain latitudes, the Halo franchise is best summed up as being created with a routine. These latitudes, as Joan Didion discusses in Blue Nights seem to carry similar themes, and while the geographical landscape of each game changes, the thoughts, moods, and most importantly, set pieces, remain familiar. Remains familiar, at least, until now. Halo 4 is coming. A new foundation, a new beginning, and as again Joan Didion writes, “It is easier to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see ...

Great, but not Perfect 0

The Good Excellent, refined gameplay.  The enemy shielding makes the strategy more interesting.  You can't just run and gun.  Often you'll lower an enemy's shield with one weapon and finish them off with another one.  You are also rewarded with cool assassinations if you can sneak up on an enemy. If you're into multiplayer this one is a no-brainer.  Of course you have the standard multiplayer modes, but you've also got Firefight, a co-op mode where you and some buddies take on waves upon waves o...

A farewell to arms. 0

As the last Halo title that developer Bungie plans to develop for the foreseeable future, Halo Reach had a lot of hype to live up too. It not only lives up to that hype, but it exceeds what was expected. The game offers an absolute plethora of content, giving players something to do at all times. At the time of this writing, I am at the highest possible rank for now, but the allure of the daily challenges keeps pulling me back in for more, and the stellar gameplay keeps me playing long past the ...

There was another Halo ass Halo game that was Halo'd. Halo. 0

This right here is the main and only reason to ever talk about Halo: Reach."Before the beginning you know the end." The advertisements were completely true if you have ever been part of the Halo-mania, then you would know how shit will go down in Reach. Not really the specifics, but the whole picture was clear. You were going to watch how Reach falls, or you just knew that Reach was going down. Not until E3 2009 you knew nothing of this cooperative focused Halo game.The Noble Team, made up of 6 ...

All-In-One 0

It's the ultimate Halo package.   That's why I love it, you wouldn't be looking at this if you were not a fan already. It's got one of my favourite campaigns of the series, on a par with Halo:CE. Co-Op soon to have matchmaking, Firefight, also now with matchmaking. One of the best FPS multiplayer suites available with constantly updated playlists. Forge with Forgeworld lets players create new maps to keep things fresh, or to create sets for Machinima. Add this in with armour unlocks and daily ch...

Reach. For the skies. 0

There aren't many franchises that can say they've done as much as Halo has.  Without Halo, let's face it, the Xbox wouldn't have done  nearly as well as it did, and the term "console-shooter" would have died with the Nintendo 64.  With this being Bugnie's last Halo game, expectations are sky high, and fortunately for us, delivers on almost all fronts. Each kind of Halo fan will have a varying reaction to Reach. Some will love it, some will say it sucks.  (But, hey, that's how most games work out...

New Halo Player 0

I have never really been much of a Halo player, but I have to say that Halo Reach is a great game. The campaign is great, fun levels with challenging AI. I love the persistance Avatar that you get to use in multiplayer and buy new equipment for.  Really entertaining game, I would suggest it to anyone who like FPS games. This game has the replayability to keep me entertained for a long time....

Reaching for the controller 0

Lame title I kow, but given that this game has had me doing that, I thought it was appropriate. I got Halo Reach pretty much when it came out. I'm a Halo fan from way back, loving the first game, pretty much loving the second game, kinda loving the third, hating ODST (Don't start...) and now, even when I said I'd hold off from buying it, Halo Reach has not left my console yet.  The first thing I played was the game's campaign. I think the campaigns in Halo's franchise really waned sometime betwe...

Halo: Reach will it send Bungie out... with a bang? 0

Halo: Reach is the last Halo game Bungie will develop and sadly it wasn't the best sendoff. Reach was promised to be darker than the rest of the halo games and be more ambitious, however neither comes into context in the games campaign. In the campaign you play as noble six a spartan who is a member of noble team and will inevitably be witness to the fall of Reach. He/she (depending on if the player chooses to be male or female) is a very quiet protagonist with few lines of dialogue giving us no...

Much of the Same, but thats not a bad thing 0

 Halo: Reach is much of the same. A rock solid shooter with few flaws and a suprisingly memorable story.  I've always had a love of the Halo franchise, since me and my best friend would sit in his room when we were kids running through Halo: CE on and old color TV. Man, that makes me feel old. I've played every Halo game and they're not perfect, and Halo Reach is not perfect, but it comes pretty close. The graphics are a nice change from the sludge our consoles constantly vomit onto our monito...

Halo Reach- A Review 0

Boy have we come a long way since Combat Evolved. The Microsoft money maker Halo, has been a genre defining first person shooter since 2001. Developer Bungie bids farewell to it's beloved series with their newest release, Halo Reach. The events in this game take place on the main military installation for the UNSC, planet Reach. It also takes place during the events prior to Halo 1, and is the first time in the series that players have had the chance to fill the boots of other Spartans, other th...

No One's Reviewed Reach Yet. Right? 0

I didn't hear a whole lot about this game in the months before this game's release, and that led me to believe that people were honestly getting tired of Halo. Heck, I was tired of Halo and had convinced myself that I had moved on to "bigger" and "better" console shooters by partaking in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I didn't need a new shooter and I didn't really want one, but due to living with a room mate who preordered the game, I decided I'd give it a shot, and let's just say I'm ...

The Halo formula: highly refined 0

 This is it. Bungie’s final Halo game. (For now…) Halo: Reach is the prequel to the first game in the series, Halo: Combat Evolved. With the addition of armor abilities, a handful of new weapons, vehicles and enemies, Halo: Reach adds some new strategies to play with and some welcomed freshness to the combat. The new daily and weekly challenges encourage you to play all the different modes by attaching in-game credit bonuses to achieving certain things like killing 100 enemies with a...

A fitting end to an era. 0

       Halo Reach is undoubtedly the most anticipated game this year. It marks the end of an era in this landmark franchise and as such it's goal is to go out on a high note. I believe Halo Reach takes that high note, the game is fantastic, and if you're a fan of the series, or shooters, you'll enjoy this. But check it all out in my review....

Bungie Unloads a Dropship 0

It's here! Bungie's final word on the Halo saga has arrived to much fanfare, hype, plastic figurines and a mainstream marketing budget large enough to build a small army. But that's nothing new. We've seen Halo dominate the mainstream gaming world many times before. The question is... Is this one worth it?   Plastic figurines are for real men. Many gamers fall into two camps with Halo. The first enjoys the game very deeply, so much so that it's one of the only games they play all year long. ...
