    I played through Reach last night after a good few rounds of Firefight and I think I can honestly say this was the most fun Halo experience I have had in a while.

    I'm not a big Halo fan as I think they destroyed its potential once they ceased production on the PC and converted it to the XBOX originally (there was much more scope for it). Graphically, it's quite pretty, plays well, some of the new weapons are good fun especially in firefight and overall, there is a distinct lack of the annoying repeditiveness that plagued the others.

    I guess I'd give it a 7.5/10

    :)

    Better hope for a miracle, AFAIK you can't pick them up easily if you didn't preorder ;)

    Naloac> You know in modern day gaming rating 7-8 means that the game is utter shite right? :p

    Naaaaah, It's just that people have become too generous. There were some bugs that halted gameplay, had to restart missions and a few minor things that irked me, but I did genuinely enjoy myself. However, it's not one that I will be buying.

    For me, scoring goes;

    1-3 = Why did you even buy this?

    4-5 = Some nice ideas, but overall very badly implemented

    6-7 = Solid enough, replay value might be low, good gameplay.

    8-9 = Excellent implementation of gameplay mechanics and gameplay itself. Good story.

    10 = Perfection, though exceptionally rare.

    Did anyone else have any graphical issues with Halo Reach?

    After queuing at game with my mates to get it, going back to somones flat with the Laned up Xboxes waiting.

    Every single game we played be it Firefight, Campaign, or Online we had the same issue.

    Textures where not rendering correctly, people would dissapear at sertain ranges/would just be a floating gun! (And no it wasnt active camo:geek:)

    We rulled out hardware as all 4 of out xboxes where doing it.

    Im now glad i helf off buying it, it really ruined the evening for me.

    Completed the campaign. Really enjoyed the story, was a tad short, but hey. Gotta replay on Legendary, and then do match making.

    Just played through the campaign. It was the best campaign in the Halo series IMO. Just so well done, so beautiful. I really like how it ends too. Obviously, most of us know how it ends. But it still left me in awe. One of my favorite parts was the very end, after the credits.

    Oh, also driving the forklift was up there for being one of best things improved in the series. :D

    I started on Legendary by myself, only got past the 3rd level and had to switch it over to normal. It was very difficult, and I sort of dread going through it, because it only gets tougher. xD But I'm up for the challenge.

    dunno the story ended for me in halo 3

    did rent this last night and played through the single player. its a good story but its got bugs that spoil the exp and id give it an 8 cause its halo. Any other shooter would of scored 5.

    Halo 3 is short (6-8hrs )
    reach is shorter ( under 5 hrs ) started at 6pm uk was done before 11pm the same night

    yes legendary would take longer but i only want it for the story and dont really care for its difficulty.

    Halo Brilliant
    halo 2 Average to poor
    halo 3 good
    reach average

    and ive not played multiplayer on any of the 4 games nor will i ever, Multiplayer console fps fail. WTB Mouse and Keyboard

    From what I've seen of this game, it looks to be another Halo game.

    Change the characters, the local, but overall, mostly the same trundle through the same four hours of game.

    I'll pass, thanks.
