    what is forge?
    what does it mean when it says you can't find custom games with people who aren't on your friends list?
    does it mean you can't change the setting of a game and play with people you don't know? That's pretty rubbish...
    what do you do in firefight?
    also i would like to know if you think i would enjoy Halo:reach.
    I like gears of war but i hate call of duty.
    thanks

    where?

    Forge is where you can edit the maps and add things onto the map that you want. You therefore customize maps and you can use these is custom games.

    It wont let me edit my comment above with more info.
    You can play custom games with your friends or recent playeres, there is no matchmaking for custom games (well i dont think there is, there is not on any previous Halo games).
    Firefight was introduced in Halo: ODST and it is where you fight waves of enemies with up to 4 players.
    Halo: Reach will be enjoyable, however i dont think it will have as good an online as Halo 3. I did not like the beta that was held several months ago, and unless they sort out its various problems (too many to name) i will just continue to play Halo 3.

    Rob (or anyone else) - can you tell me why I can no longer play social big team online in Halo 3? I used to play this quite a lot, now it says I cannot.

    Rent Halo 3 and if you like it you'll have a general idea if you are going to enjoy reach or not. I think it will be better than Halo 3, even though the beta wasn't mind blowing I feel they will deliver. Plus with the new Forge World they've remade Sanctuary, Blood Gultch and Ascension

    You need to download/purchase the required map packs. You need heroic (which is free), legendary (600 msp), and both parts of the mythic map pack (800 points each) to be able to play all maps. Im not sure if all are required though.

    cheers for that. Bit of a stink I've got to start paying for something that's been free for so long.

    Im not 100% sure if it is offline 4 player, but i think it is. Yes you should like this game, it is one of my favourite games, and i have player more than 4500 online games. You get different gametypes online, for example slayer, caprute the flag, plant the bomb, king of the hill, amoungst many, many more. You can pick it up pretty cheap, however you need to purchase map packs to play everything (although certain gametypes you dont need any map packs other than the free ones). With a quick search the cheapest i can see it is at £10.47 on Amazon.co.ukhere.

    The customization is pretty good, and yes that is true. You can download peoples custom maps onto your Xbox 360 on Bungie.net, and you can view your service record for all your stats there.

    why did you pick the username "xbox-360-elite" when you obviously don't know much about gaming?

    How about just buying Halo 3 for £4 from here:
    hotukdeals.com/dea…359

    dontasciime

    Yup £11.95 delivered and you get all Marketplace MAPS



    Buy Halo 3 for £4 as well as you would be missing out on the superior campaign.

    My reply was as was MarzBarzs to Smidav and not the OP.
