Halo Reach the Grand Finale

Halo Games – Reach

While Halo:Reach does wink at its predecessors, the game is still a gigantic step forward.  Sprinkles of successful elements from the earlier games are found while a new design level rises from the core.  The action in the game is never at a stand still, moving from one scenario to another with an abundance of twists.

The best new addition in Reach that the other Halo games did not have is the armor abilities.  These reusable but temporary extra abilities add jet packs, invincible armor and sprinting which results in a much more acrobatic game.  Don’t think these extras make it any easier on you though.  This game is easily one of the most challenging in the franchise.  Oh, and the soundtrack is simply epic.  It literally elevates your gaming experience.

The sense of scale in Halo:Reach is unparalleled as you feast your eyes on a striking color palette.  The war you fight ranges across the planet, not just in theory but visuals as well.

Everything you do in the game earns you credits and if you accumulate enough, you can really make your Noble 6 quite unique by unlocking customization features.  This new and improved personalized look carries on through every scene, interestingly, even the cut scenes.  It is also quite appreciated by some to be able to hop out of the game and edit which rules you want as well.  You can control how destructive weapons are and who you face in Firefight.

Xbox live members have the opportunity to enter in daily and weekly challenges to compel you to keep coming back to prove your skills.  The first Halo was a humble, small game featuring indelible, strong characters.  Gamers were drawn to it because of the multilayer feature and that quality certainly does more than impress in this last addition of the Halo games.

Halo:Reach is a must play for anyone who thrives on multiplayer action.  Also, the game’s outstanding matchmaking abilities is so intuitive it’s almost scary.  Rarely are you dropped into a battle you can’t handle.  Combat holds true to its organic feel.  You will switch from your pistol to assault rifle, lob grenades and hijack a few vehicles in your spare time.

Whether you like to play Halo games with your friends or all alone, Halo:Reach is really a fantastic package to act as a finale to one of the best multilayer games in history. Dublin Dun Laoghaire Reviews
