One of the better Halo's,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Halo Reach (Video Game)
I have played Halo 1-3, I skipped ODST. I like this Halo quite a bit, although I have to admit that i found the first 2 chapters somewhat boring. It takes off and gets pretty exciting by the time you hit chapter 3 or 4.
Their are even more weapon and vehicle options than the previous Halo's. You can team up with AI which can also be killed by the Covenant.
Their are no Flood enemies in this game, as it takes place chronologically before the Halo trilogy.
I personally have been having trouble joining a xbox live coop campaign game, and when I say trouble I mean I have not been able to do this at all. I did read online that people who own the 4g console have this issue for some reason, although I'm not sure why. I did buy a HD and it is in my Xbox.
If I had any criticisms it would be the cartoonish art. It is not overly so, but it does not compare to Gears of War 3, or Modern Warefare 3 in terms of art. It is still very good however, especially the background and landscapes which are beautifull.
This is a game you won't regret buying if you like sci-fi's, shooters, or both. I see around 100k people playing it online still.
