Halo Reach



Reviewing another great game here. Before I begin let me just say I am a huge fan of the Halo series. I have played every Halo game including Halo Wars (which was ok but back to Reach) and enjoyed playing all of them. So now with the review. This game's campaign is stunning, one of the best I’ve played but in my opinion Halo 2and 3 were the best. I love the driving missions at the very end of the game, I was disappointed the Reach didn’t finish the series with an epic race mission. Now to the multiplayer which I wasn’t particularly fond of, many people didn’t agree with the armor abilities which were a bit unfair at times. The one that annoyed me the most was the armor lock. Invincible for thirty seconds how is that any bit fair even if they are sitting still? Well it isn’t, many a time I would be riding along in a ghost and oh look a splatter victim that hasn’t spotted me, boost up and alright about to kill him. Armor locked, shit what the hell is that bullshit I just exploded by running into him. Typical game scenario of me when I run into one of those types of people really aggravates me. If Bungie had taken the armor abilities of it probably would have been a great game but they left them in and it can only be classified as ok. Tell me how you feel about it.

  2. pretty good game, personally like it more than Halo 2, since it actually delivered the urban combat I wanted, but halo 3 has it beat

  6. the abilities give it a pretty nice touch, but what doesnt make sense to me is the games graphical updates, like the elites and brutes dont look like they used to. and the spartans have different armors. which they shouldnt have had because they werent developed till later. and they took out a bunch of weapons too. it made it almost.. whats the word..? empty? I like halo 3 for its gigantic unique maps, reach just didnt have enough.
    still a great game otherwise

  7. I have been addicted to Reach for like the past 5 months haha
    Yeah, I hate armour lock! It is always one of the first things that start me raging. I think the idea was good but Bungie should have reduced the time you can use it, because some people seem to stay in armour lock for flippin aaaages
