Hello I'm going to be reviewing one of my favourite games. It all started when I picked up halo 3 and I was just taken into another world and from then on I've followed the halo series through to the epic conclusion or should I say beggining as Halo Reach is set before all the other Halos and you play as Noble 6 not Master Chief.
The graphics are deffentely a step up from the other halos. With the new improved armour everything looks smoother and much more detailed. Bungie did excellent work on the sky which really portrays the feelings of the level and foretells of what it is to come. However I rewarded it an 8/10 because the forge tools all look the same colour and the game isnt as beautiful as skyrim.
The sound for me in Halo is the most distinctive quality, the moment I hear that amazing Halo theme song I have to humm along to it and it generally makes me feel as I am in the war, with the roar of the engines of the warthogs and their wheels crunching over the gravel, the wraith shot in the distance, one of your teammates pulling the pin on the gernade and the bullets flying over your head. So big round of applause for the bungie team on this one as this scores a perfect 10
The gameplay is improved from the last one with the new armour abilities which make the game much more tactical. Also as with the halo games you don't die with one bullet so the gunfights are more skilled and therefore even more epic. The vehicles set this game apart from the rest for me, theres nothing more satisfying than flying the falcon or crash bombing with the banshee, Also the forge is much improved with rotation snap and objects that can stay fixed or phased into one another. Many more gamemodes as well that are all fun and of course if you don't like any of the multiplayer modes make your own and set up a custom match for all your friends.
Although it's a fun game it can get quite repeative and boring after an hour or two of playing and thats not because I'm bad at the game! For me kills are simply pace your shots and side strafe, works every single time and when I do try and play the game differently it doesent work and I find myself getting very angry and flustered. You should be able to get quite a lot of time on this game thou and it should be able to keep you all entertained untill halo 4 comes out.
Overall it's a 9 for me because a 10 is well perfect and this game is not perfect as we wouldnt need another game, would we?
343 industries please add more WEAPONS and VEHICLES also don't take the multiplayer maps from the campaign I don't like that.
Final Score: 88%
