My friend has played the halo series for years and he recommended it to me. The plot is your the new guy 6 and your first mission involves fighting rebels. well until you find the covenant(the aliens).you go through a war with your team all dying through out it. A scientist finds an AI (computer). The AI happens to be cortana (seen in other games).unfortunately there is no flood (a parisite in other games). In the last level which is basically a survival mode if you die don't worry it's imposible to survive.but the best is the matchmaking you. Can use jet pack,use invisibility without a power up. Also if you have anniversary you level up your character on it's matchmaking. Another cool thing is forge which allows you to create your own maps and download friends maps. Speed halo is a famous map and is really fun. I would recommend trying it. The coolest thing about forge is that reach is the only game ever with it. Some of the maps on live was made with forge by the halo creaters. Goodbye from Pizzajoe56
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 =/
