Ladies & Gents,

Obviously some lucky people have received their pre order copy of Halo Reach already and I wanted to start a new topic to get an idea from people as to what their first impressions are?

Multiplayer, campaign ETC

I know the multiplayer stats are being reset tomorrow but it doesnt stop people learning the maps does it!!!

It has been mentioned on another thread (See Below) about starting a HUKD Clan for Halo Reach so add your Gamertag to that thread and lets do HUKD proud on the Halo field!

I did think the Supermarkets would commence battle but I suppose they only do that on multi platform games unfortunately.

I took advantage of the Tesco deal posted on here for £27.

just looks the same as halo 3

Absolute rot. Traded it in after 3 hours of playing. Got £30. I should have learned my lesson after the dreadful Halo 3, but alas, I was conned

Thats saved me a few quid then. Would only play it online once a week so if the campaign is pants then not for me.

Had time to play 10 minutes of my copy earlier - so far it's good, tweaked to perfection.

The game i would give 9.2/10,
Its a good game for the £27 i paid. Probably not different enough from halo 3 to warrant £40 purchase if your not a big halo fan. But if your a halo fan you'll love it. Seems very well 'perfected' and the online seems alright (never really been a fan of halo online)

as above, always struggled with halo online but this seems a lot better and easier to grasp, games great co op, played with my son and my brother and it's been great,

Mixed reviews, mine should arrive in the morning. Multiplayer is always why I've enjoyed Halo.

Its amazing, i found the sheer amount of things and new additions from the previous games in the franchise is increidble.
#14
I dont know if true but the reset apparantly happend on Thursday and wont be happening again (or so it says on various websites).

Edit: Yes it has already been reset as of Thursday so anything you have earned you get to keep.

i've never played any halo game and after watching a couple of minutes of that i don't think i will...hill controlled,hill contested,hill controlled .....wtf?? how annoying is that

Halo has always been about the multiplayer aspect - it used to keep people coming back for more and more - I know i've spent hundreds of hours on it!
Halo Reach is very strong with the campaign - a very good storyline, great set-pieces - really takes me back to the fun of the original halo, and best bits from the next 2 games.
I'm undecided about the multiplayer - after clocking over 300 hours on MW2, I just think it feels sharper, smoother and faster than Halo.
I haven't played very much, so hopefully i'll be proved wrong.
Also, I think the customisation element is a huge gimmick

Jcampwella, I feel that when I receive my copy in the morning I may feel the same. I have clocked up serious hours on MW2 and BFBC2 and worry how Halo is going to compare.

But it is also nice for a change so I am really looking forward to it. Thanks for all the posts and letting me know what you think!

Huh I thought he was a camping fag.

Looks the same

Having given the online multiplayer a couple of hours, it seems to be much better than the beta version. I was dissapointed with the beta because I thought it felt quite heavy and slow, especially compared to MW2, but it seems more fluid and quicker now. Even though I haven't played Halo for months, i'm still pretty good! (_;)
(I had logged about 4000ish games on Halo 3!)
#23
Completed the single player, had a really great time, some great set pieces.

Significantly better than ODST
