The review embargo lifts at 9.00PM in Pacific Time, so that's 5:00AM tomorrow over here. It's not like there will be any surprises with the scores, Halo is the most overrated video game series ever.

Give us a little review later, Dingo. Wink

Most seem to say the campaign isn't that amazing, and it's only 5 hours long... what? But of course the multiplayer is really good. -_-

I just hate that they will say that but then give it 9s and 10s, but at least some gave it a more grounded score after saying such things.

Of course, IGN give it a 9.5 and fanboys once again aren't happy. Augh.

It's not going to change your mind about Halo, but this special delivery for fans of the franchise is a great send-off as Bungie ends its involvement with the franchise to go work on something new.

4/5

Games Radar (in-house) wrote:Do you buy Halo mostly for the multiplayer? Then Reach is everything you'd want and expect from Bungie's final contribution to the franchise perfectly polished familiarity with exactly the right amount of fresh features and bold risk-taking. If you're counting on an epic, sweeping and satisfying campaign story, however, you might want to keep waiting for Halo 4.

8/10

Worth Playing wrote:If multiplayer is your thing, it's a must-have title. If you're a hardcore Halo fan looking to flesh out the story and really just want more of the same, then pick it up. If you're looking for an innovative FPS that pushes boundaries and helps define the genre, though, you may want to look elsewhere. Reach is fun, but it doesn't provide the same kick in the ass as your first time through the original Halo.

8.5

I don't mind a short campaign. Leaves more time for multiplayer.

Eurogamer mention that it's 10 hours in length, so forget what I said. They also mention that they didn't really feel anything for the squad, which is a shame, was an aspect I was looking forward to.

Aiming for both the human frailty of ODST's marines and Master Chief's towering, monosyllabic super-heroism - and consequently achieving neither - these bland characters never find the place in your heart they're supposed to. As a result, Bungie's predictable lunges at camaraderie and pathos fall wide of the mark, and all you're left with is a lot of po-faced exposition between the explosions.

You just know if the games after Combat Evolved continued without Xbox Live support would be scoring much lower, but then again, that would mean Bungie wouldn't be concentrating on the multiplayer so much and would probably have made much better single-player campaigns.

Anyway, we'll see on Tuesday.

Toss... I hope the single player is at least a little better than they all seem to think... no time for multiplayer these days and just want to get the game completed so I can know what happened on Reach... was such a sad end to the first novel to think Jon was the only Spartan left...

One of mates (Not the one I got Reach for) has finished it now and says it's amazing. He's a big Halo fanboy though so take it with a pinch of salt lol. He said it took him about 8 hours to finish it too Smile

Ha ha, right from the get-go on Combat Evolved you know this, Jammer. Razz

I think it's Cortana that mentions the destruction of Reach the first time you meet her on the Pillar of Autumn. You die, everybody dies at the end of Reach. That's what I'm really looking forward to. You know how it ends.

They still make Halos? And people still buy them? Next sequel will be 2 of the same game with different enemies and weapons in select areas and be called Halo Fire Red and Leaf Green.
