planet Reach game10/31/2013
Halo Reach's campaign takes place just before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. You are put into the shoes of Noble six, a member of a Spartan squad called Noble Team. During the campaign, you help out Noble Team in their defense of Reach against the Covenant, a courageous effort against impossible odds. The campaign is reasonably long, logging in at about ten hours on your first play through, increasing or decreasing with difficulty or skulls activated.
Theater Mode works just like in previous version it is a video editor that lets you record and play back any and all matches from Campaign, Multiplayer, and Fire Fight, and even Forge World from the point of view of any player that was there in either first person or third person (u can even swap to a in a orbit-cam where the camera circles around the player) all of this in real time.

The plot is non existent compared to others in the franchise (especially the original), and the ammo hard to come by. I get Legendary is supposed to be hard, make you think, and challenge you, but even with a friend playing, it's nigh impossible in spots. The new abilities are decent, add a little bit at first, but then you see how useless they turn out to be (legendary). Graphics are a HUGE step back for the system (especially after being out a few years), this should get better with new games, not worse. Shoulda been better, especially for waiting for this release.
Great game for Halo fans1/7/2013
I got this game after playing it At my friends house. The single player is OK... but the multiplayer and new ranking system is simply amazing. They have added a ton of new game modes and weapons. I'd recommend this game if you like sci fi and shorter games.
Tried and true (Halo) FPS experience that many other games have copied over the years. - Great Co-op Gameplay allows up to four players to go through the entire game from start to end. - Great graphics which look way better than that of Halo 3 and ODST; also there are a lots of new animations for the characters as well as tons of new unique enemy voice work to boot.
The game is awesome; it has multiplayer along with an epic campaign. The multiplayer is epic!!! You can pick up a wide variety of guns and drive different types of vehicles. The only thing I do not appreciate about the Halo Series is the amount of health that you get.
Decent Halo update6/8/2012
The multiplayer is the reason to get this game. The single player just doesn't match up to the previous Halo games, lacking the cinematic feel we have come to expect. If you play online a lot however (as most of us do), then you definately have to get this one.
Not the Halo I remember.4/18/2012
This latest installment in the Halo franchise left a bad taste in my mouth. The levels are all grey and have no character like they did in the first 2 Halo games. I really disliked the bloom they added to the game. And I didn't really like the armor abilities. Halo 4 looks a lot more promising. Can't wait!!
Great Game. Storyline is weaker without chief11/10/2011
I love the multiplayer of reach. I think it is halo's best since halo 2. However, I was upset with the lack of multiplayer maps that shipped with the game especially because some were made in forge world. The campaign was very good but not as memorable as the other halos. The armor and other extras were great. Great game to buy used and get a couple months of enjoyment.
The best of ther series (IMO)11/9/2011
Ive never been a huge Halo fan, I've enjoyed the games but never been very good at them, Reach changed that, the game mechanics are smooth and glitch free, the graphics are very nice and the campaign has a good story and can be very easy or almost impossible depending on how you set the difficulty
