This blows. I bought the game about a year after launch for like 30 dollars and really loved the game mechanics when they were executed. The combat was terrible, but I loved the art aesthetics and music. It had some great ideas and I wish they were making another one.
I didn't find the gameplay fun, but the open-world stuff was good and the game was fun as hell. Personally I think Halo Reach is the most underrated game of the year as it isn't even being discussed for game of the year at most sites, and is losing to Black Ops for best FPS everywhere (which is ridiculous by the way). Its not my game of the year, its fourth for me behind ME2, RDR, and AC:B, but its a great game with no real flaws. It deserved higher scores than it got.
@EndSarcasm: I still don't understand the appeal of Heavy Rain. I tried to like it, I really did, but for some reason it didn't catch me. Not to mention that it was a game based solely on story, where the story had many holes.
The achievements for Borderlands Claptraps' New Robot Revolution are an abortion. I have spent 4 hours farming claptraps at the end of the dlc by the MINAC and still dont have the required Pizza's. Has anyone else had to deal with this? Does anyone know where the fuck I can find some pizza?
Halo Reach is the best console fps ever made. CoD 4 comes close, but Reach just has everything. I just wish I had more time to play it, luckily I have three weeks of break before next semester, so I plan on sinking a bunch of time into it. The call of duty formula seems more stale to me, this is the fourth straight year of the same leveling and prestige system, while Reach represents the first true leveling system in the Halo series which is addicting for me at least. PLus those daily challenges are awesome.
