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.

Or do they Wink Jon blew up the covenant warship that was glassing Reach when radio contact was lost with forces on the ground. The Chief returned to the Pillar of Autumn after the ship was destroyed and the mission to follow the Covenant Ship containing the Prophet led to the events of Combat Evolved.

While it is BELIEVED that almost all of the Spartan II program died at Reach, it's not to say they did (the only confirmed Spartan II in the game is Jorge, the heavy weapon's dude, who I can't remember being in the fiction) but Noble Team is of the Spartan III program, which are only in Ghost of Onyx, Set between the events of Halo 2 and 3, so those who died before aren't really talked about that much.

But Spartan III's are nothing more really than ODSTs in cheaper MJOLNIR Armor... which imho, should make the game a little more fun than being the unstoppable Juggernaut that was Master Chief... It also explains why it's probably the "hardest halo ever"...

Yeah, I don't know too much about the canon of the story, I was hoping you would fill us in. lol
I look forward to finding out. Also, I would love for it to link up to the beginning of Combat Evolved right at the end. Master Chief surely has to make a cameo.

Also, is it Jon or John? I see it's John on the wiki thing. :p

I also realised that John Spartan is the name of Sylvester Stallone's character in Demolition Man. Coincidence, I think not.

yup that's just my awful grammar xD its John.
Spoiler:

Also, I thought you'd already confirmed the chief making a cameo?

Handy link for the history of Spartan IIs - http://halostory.bungie.org/spartanroster.html

Also if anyone wants it, Im sure i've got a spare copy of The Fall of Reach kicking about (bought it separate then it worked out cheaper to buy the first three together than the second one alone in a waterstones sale), If I can find it / anyone wants it, let me know.

I have to say that this is probably the best Halo since the first game, in terms of the feel of it anyway. It's the first time it doesn't play exactly the same as the last game. Much more tactical feel to it. All of the weapons feel awesome to use, unlike the other games, the pistol and assualt rifle are cool again. The enemy AI is some of the best I've seen, shame about your squads though. It's got more of a cinematic feel to it, sort of feels like if Infinity Ward made it.

Made it up to the 5th mission now, there are 9 in total (10 if you count the opening to the game). Taken me about an hour to each one, but I am doing it on Heroic. The missions have been pretty good so far, sort of just warming up. Already seen a familiar face, but I won't say who and in what form. I'll do one more mission tonight.

Postitve stuff so far.

I finished it earlier too. I only wish the story had been told better, and your teammates were more fleshed out. Not a spoiler, but when one of them dies, it doesn't stop to show some compassion, it's just straight to the next mission and it's like nothing happened.

I thought it terms of the campaign overall it's the best one since Combat Evolved. I liked how it ended, nice link up, but you feel they could have made it even more epic.

I liked the epilogue.

Yeah, I've seen some other people guessing there will be some on the way.

Oh, yeah, didn't realise there are data pads to collect.

It's the complete opposite for me. One of the games with Ipso before had me at 20+ kills. I'll let Ipso tell you how many he got. lol
