Halo: Reach

True achievements
12 March 2014
  • Conclusion: This was with us knowing that the fate of Reach was that of a hopeless one, but watching the Spartans and human society struggle and fight for every inch of land made the experience that much more satisfying. Halo Reach's experience is an accumulation of Bungie's hard work on the series. That is something I cannot reemphasize enough. If you have an Xbox 360, then you owe it to yourself to pick this game up – even if you're not a Halo fan.

Halo Reach – Reviewed (360)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Love it or hate it (most PS3 owners do!), Bungie’s epic franchise, Halo, will no doubt go down in gaming folklore as one of the very few franchises that has reached inter-stellar fame. Originally, the game that put Microsoft’s Xbox hardware on the map, Halo has made some bold statements over the years with beautifully designed levels, narrative and pacing that can match some of the greatest films and with Halo 2, a multiplayer system that catapulted players of console...

Halo: The Fall of Reach Book Review

GameCritics.com
18 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Halo: The Fall of Reach Written by Eric Nylund Books written about videogames are odd prospects. Fiction expanding on published properties has existed for years, but it's been mostly limited to feverish fantasies written by fans in dark corners of the Internet, usually involving bizarre and improbable sexual situations. Times have changed, however.

Halo Reach

2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The final chapter of a good book is often sad and rewarding at the same time - even more so when the book is the last in a franchise of great books. That is the feeling of millions of gamers worldwide as Bungie wraps up its tenure as the gatekeeper of Halo. Bungie has been the development force behind the Halo brand since its inception in 2001.

Halo: Reach super review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Pros: Multiplayer is better than ever, Armor abilities a bold departure from the Halo formula, Headhunter and Invasion modes are instant classics
  • Cons: Campaign is more ODST 2 than Halo 4, Armor abilities not put to much use in single player, Story assumes you know every detail of the Halo universe

Review: "Halo: CE Anniversary" is a Reach

Complex
30 November 2011
  • Excerpt: When Microsoft announced that they were re-releasing an updated version of the original Halo game, it was hard for Halo fans not to be excited. However, the game seems to be more of a cash-grab from Microsoft in a season when their flagship franchise is without a major iteration.

Halo: Reach

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Ultimately, this is something you're going to have to experience for yourself. Bungie couldn't have given their last Halo game better treatment, and a part of us kind of hopes that Microsoft will just leave the core franchise alone, at least for a while. Everything has been enhanced and improved so much, that Bungie at least deserve kudos for all the effort they put in. This is definitely the most complete Halo game to date, and well worth the money.

Halo Reach

High-Def Digest
27 September 2011
  • Summary: Ready your pitchforks and torches, for I am no “Halo fanboy.” Truth be told, when the original “Halo: Combat Evolved” hit the X-Box what feels like ages ago, I played it and barely managed to reach the end. It felt derivative and clunky and to someone who had put in many hours with “Perfect Dark” and “Half-Life.” When “Halo 2” came out, I gave it a shot and was again, unimpressed, although “Half-Life 2” coming out within weeks might have had something to do with that.

Expert Review

Realm of Gaming
8 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I expected Halo Reach to be the best Halo game yet. And it is. But it has a few shortcomings. The game starts before the invasion and eventual destruction of the planet Reach, the United Nation Space Council's military stronghold and on the doorstep to Earth. Players take control of a Spartan III, Noble 6. As a member of Noble Team, your mission is to stop the invasion and hold of the attack for as long as possible. The campaign was a weak point in the game.
