    The Chief of The Non-Master-Chief Halo

    Perhaps a big portion of Halo Series fans is admiring the most iconic super-soldier: Master Chief. It could be obviously understood that Master Chief stole so many hearts for his personification from Halo Combat Evolved ... Read Full Review

    If you like more "Halo," this game will satisfy you.

    I'll be honest with you, I didn't think I'd be coming back to the "Halo" series with this one. After playing all of the mainline "Halo" games, I expected that I'd just be waiting for "Halo Infinite" to come out before re... Read Full Review

    Remembering Reach

    10 years ago, when Halo: Reach first released, I remember playing it and enjoying it a lot when I was in my final year of secondary school. It was a game that I couldn’t put down and I rated it as the best in the ... Read Full Review

    One of the better Halo games and rock-solid port

    It was a brave move to move the Halo franchise away from Master Chief's point of view. After the success of ODST, Bungie continued this move with a prequel to the original game and how Cortana was discovered. You pla... Read Full Review

    Epic in every sense. The challenge & struggle is real. The campaign is mesmerizing.

    I have played very few games where the AI is so smart & difficult to tackle. They rush at you, they find cover, they dodge your grenades, they shoot at you tactfully and don't allow you breathing space. So many times... Read Full Review

    Talk about that ending

    Out of all of the Halo series, they really put a lot of fan service into this game. Customizations was on par. To date, I don't believe another Halo game has came close.Story was different and refreshing. It put the play... Read Full Review

    Halo Reach

    Given that the game is 8 years old, I was expecting it to look a little dated, but this looks very beautiful. The story is a prequel to the first Halo game, so tells the tale of the Covenant's conquest of Reach. You pl... Read Full Review

    I understand more about Reach.

    After what I consider just good Halo 3: ODST, the saga returns to the high level with Halo: Reach, which happens chronologically before Halo Combat Evolved, and we understand more about Reach and obviously about the Halo... Read Full Review

    Late to the party, but glad I played this one at last!

    Many years ago, I got the first Xbox during the holiday season it was released. Most of the games were terrible but there was one that stood head and shoulders above the rest--and revolutionized the first-person shooter... Read Full Review
