    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

    Good variety of missions in this Halo prequel

    Disclosure: I'm a 50-something gamer with a moderate reaction time. I enjoy first-person shooters, but it's not my favourite genre. And I only played the solo campaign; I have no interest in playing endless deathmatches ... Read Full Review

    Good game, but the single-player campaign is short

    I've played all the Halo games. I didn't like ODST, so I wasn't sure what to expect from Reach. I enjoyed Reach, but I thought the single-player campaign was kind of short. Makes me glad I picked it up on sale, I nev... Read Full Review

    Most hours put into halo then any other halo game.

    With that being said, the campaign was OK at best. ODST was the worst in my opinion and Reach comes in 2nd worst. It was fun to play through once but I never touched the campaign again after I beet it. Multiplayer was b... Read Full Review

    A complacent, by-the-numbers game from a developer that has clearly stopped trying a long time ago.

    Conceptually, Halo: Reach is almost a spin-off as it takes you away from Master Chief’s struggle and places you onto Reach before the story we all know actually began. The stage was clear for Bungie to try somethin... Read Full Review

    Seriously one of the best prequels you can get your hands on...

    Halo Reach has to be the one FPS that I had spent a lot of time on! This game is so much fun and had so much more to offer than the new features that Halo 3: ODST put out! This campaign is SOLID and each mission is very ... Read Full Review
