4.0 out of 5 stars It's still good- but not the best Halo, May 25, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo Reach (Video Game)
Two years later and this game has been tons and tons of fun. I can easily recommend it to anyone looking to buy. However, unlike I did with Halo 3 after Halo Reach came out, I cannot see myself going back and playing this. There are a number of little quirks that make this game different from other Halos- reticle bloom being the most noteworthy. This introduces another variable that can cause and unskilled player to get a kill they don't deserve or a skilled player not getting a kill they do deserve.

Another thing worth mentioning is that, while Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 3: ODST all ran at an extremely solid 30 frames per second, Halo Reach does tend to drop below that in scenes dense with enemies, which is more demanding. This does not detract from the experience and never happens in multiplayer. I may only notice because I am a PC gamer as well and tend to notice framerate drops.

I WILL be recommending this game less and less as Halo 4 nears, since Reach does not follow Master Chief's story, and the multiplayer I cannot see lasting long after Halo 4's release.

But don't let that deter you. I know I have criticized a lot in this review, but if you are looking to buy, chances are you have already read up and heard about all the good things. I wanted to point out some of the issues I had with the game. Taken as a whole, with the fantastic campaign, great graphics, and top of the line (even with the few oddities) multiplayer, Halo Reach is one of the best games I have ever purchased, especially on the Xbox 360.
