This game goes over the standards of a game. This game is not just a game, but a life style. Halo has been such a AWESOME series that, well, everyone just has to get a copy. Here is what i think of Halo: Reach:
Graphics 10/10. The only thing i do not like about the graphics is the ground, i will say it is that from the first halo, maybe a little better, but i do not care about this because i dont stare at the ground for hours. :)
Gameplay: 10/10. Omg. i cant even fit all thats good about it in GF's 2000 word limit for reveiws. your just going to have to try the game to figure it out.
Storyline:10/10. Amazing. It fits in with the halo series so well that it well keep you guessing every minute along the way.
Online: 10/10. Outstanding.
Customization: 10/10. Awesome armor graphics, possibilities, and even story's that go with each little peice of armor.
Overall: Dont rent this game. Just dont. Go out and buy it! Right now! get out of you chair or couch and get in your car, go to the nearest store that sells games and pick up a copy!!!! well i hope you found this helpful!Thanks!

This is bungies last game and as expected they went out with a bang. This is by far the best Halo and the most content rich than any other halo. The campaign has brilliant storytelling, Beautiful visuals (Night time on reach is stunning)and the hardest halo campaign yet and dont expect to have it easy with friends because each player you gain the higher the difficulty scales. Firefight makes a return from ODST and now has matchmaking. Firefight is highly addictive, i have found myself playing more firefight than the campaign. The firefight maps are great, my personal favorites being beachfront and corvette. Firefight offers loads of customization this time around. If you want to be invincible and go on a grunt massacre you can or maybe you want to test your skills and go against hunters and elites with just a magnum and a sniper, the possibiltes are massive. The multiplayer is better than ever with loads of armor customization that you earn with credits whic can be earned in campaign and multiplayer(Your custom also appears as noble six in camapaign. New game modes like invasion bring freshness to the multiplayer and the armor abilites are a great additions(JETPACKS!!!). Im kinda bummed that there are not that many new original maps and most are remakes of old maps. Of course thats not bad thing a glad the brought back these maps(Ivory Tower FTW!).The last and greatest addition is forge world, the ultimate map creation tool on any console. Forge world is a massive area for you to create whatever kind of map or gametype you want to make. Im looking foward to what master forgers are going to bring to the community. Kudos to bungie and there final outing to an amazing series. Bungie proves that they are one of the gretest game devolpers ever and they love their fans and community and we love them to. Have fun at activision =/

Of all the Halo games in the franchise, I anticipate this one will trump them all. With the addition of new game play modes, multiplayer character upgrades and customizations, new abilities, and a stunning campaign, this game is just epic in every way. Bungie ends with a huge bang.
Taking hints from the ridiculous success of Modern Warfare 2, there are tons of new additional features to online multiplayer. The ability to upgrade and customize your character’s looks and abilities are finally here. You can change colors, add pieces of armor, create your own emblem, and a ton more---Covenant or Spartan. You can change if you want to sprint faster, have jet-packs, camouflage, etc. You earn credits while playing to purchase these in the armory. The better you do the more credits you earn. It’s a little tough at first, but just like any game---play more and get better.
Online play has been flawless for me so far. No glitches plaguing the game like MW2. Firefight mode is seriously beefed up and is amazingly DEEP. There is so much to see and so many ways to play the mode. If you aren’t familiar, you and 3 friends try to survive maps while defeating waves of relentless Covenant enemies. It’s like opening a box of Cheeze-Its (or ketchup chips if you’re from Canada…), once you start you seriously can’t stop. There is also the addition of Forge mode, where you can EDIT maps and save them as data to send to friends or upload. It is the largest Halo online multiplayer map in existence.
I was also blown away by another glorious single player/co-op campaign. The graphics are some of the best I’ve seen on the 360 to date. The landscape and environmental surroundings are crisp and clean. The sounds and music were also epic. It picks up at the right moment to add to the suspense and had me totally engulfed at parts. It’s long enough and difficult enough to keep you playing over and over. It is more than worth its cost at $60.
