5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best, September 14, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo Reach (Video Game)
This game, as countless others have stated, is the perfect culmination of every Halo game made. It has the great gameplay, story, visuals, audio (really amazing stuff), and that overall sheen of awesome that every great game has. I love how they add the viceral feel back as the guns in Halo 3, while awesome, just didn't kick enough. I know it makes sense as the MC is a Spartan with the strength of a tank, and in reality there wouldn't be any recoil. But, I loved the kick the weapons in Halo 2 gave and I'm glad to see it back. The explosions are the best they've ever been, with dirt flying all over from a grenade explosion, replete with the ringing in your ears if your were too close. I love the *OOMF!!* sound they make. Really feels like a punch to the gut on a nice surround sound system. The bigger explosions have way more sparks and flares as the particle engine is much more powerful now. Also, the Covenant dropships sound a lot louder and scarier this time. Everything seems so much more immersive this time, with fewer jaggies than Halo 3 and a more epic soundtrack. Very cool music.

Buy it. Play it. And pay no mind to the ridiculous 1, 2 and 3 star reviews.
