The 10 Greatest Halo Moments

NowGamer continues its Halo: Reach pre-launch coverage by recapping the 10 greatest Halo moments from the series so far - "We're coming in too fast!" What a better place to start than, well, the start. After escaping the Pillar of Autumn, Master Chief and Cortana hop aboard the Bumblebee lifeboat and crash land into the ring. Stepping out of the lifepod and glancing up at the Halo gives a sense of scale that few games have been able to replicate as well since. There was temptation to enjoy the lush surroundings, though Covenant forces – that had moments before been nothing more than dots on the ground – were quickly incoming."

So many great moments in the best video game series of all times. It's hard to contain a list so full of greatness to only 10 moments but nice try doing so. Halo Reach.. if you are a gamer and aren't gonna get to play Reach (PS3 fans) I feel sorry for you.

I am a PS3 fan but don't feel sorry for me, I have a 360 too! See I'm a gamer, not a fanboy.

I'm a PS3 fan and I dont have a 360. But I get to play MGS4, Uncharted 1&2, KZ2&3, GT5, TLG, VSXIII and other amazing games so dont feel sorry for me. :)

rezzah2720d ago

You dont need to have multiple consoles to not be a fanboy, just having 1 console increases your chance of being one. Besides there are those who own a 360 and are not into Halo. Back in the ps2 era I played Halo but to me it wasnt really interesting, I was way more into Devil May Cry.

Dont worry - PS3 fans feel sorry for you as well. Awesome 720p graphics, great plot and characters, innovations in gameplay in every new title - not in Halo of course, talking about MGS, Uncharted, Gran Tuirismo, Team Ico, God Of War, Ratchet....

Incidentally, I also have a 360. Bought it for Mass Effect, greatest game on the 360, but you wouldnt appreciate it, which is why it sold barely 2 million on the XBOX (both 1 and 2 combined outsold by ODST, can there be a greater injustice?) and has gone to the PS3 as well.

Chuk52720d ago

You really think it will sell better on the ps3? That wont happen. And 2 million is nothing to scoff at. How does gT have an awesome plot? You just race. You are the epitome of a sony fanboy.

thief2720d ago

Mass effect wont sell better on PS3, probably much less, because its an old game and people like me have already bought the game (on XBOX or PC). Thats not the point - Mass Effect is the greatest game on the XBOX, and sold far less than the awful Halo ODST. MGS4, uncharted 2 and LBP are all well above or closing in on 4 million, and none had the grand scale of Mass Effect.

"How does gT have an awesome plot?"
It doesnt. It doesnt have 720p graphics either - it has 1080p. So my post was doubly inaccurate about GT. funny you didnt point out the second one.

fastrez2720d ago

But no inclusion of ODST's final stand-off near the end.

Chuk52720d ago

I think you're not giving some of the sony fans on this site enough credit. 'm sure they will play if their not biased and consider themselves universal gamers. I mean I'm a 360 gamer and have played KZ2,GOW3,LBP and heavy rain. On topic, Deifinaetly when you land on halo. Coming from the bygone 64 era, I s#@t bricks when saw it.

Stuart57562720d ago

6/10, my goodness, ODST all over again.

gillri2720d ago

yeah thats the most moronic review I have read, Halo Reach wont get that from reputable reviewers

HarryMonogenis2720d ago

"I've never been too fond of Halo's story"

Stopped reading there..

TheLeprachaun2720d ago (Edited 2720d ago )

A few terribly written paragraphs is not a review. The embargo hasn't even been lifted yet so either they haven't played the game or they've got the leaked version.

Plus, chances are they only gave it 6/10 to get hits. I'm not trying to come off as one sided here but it's blatantly obvious that the review is a load of crapola.

BYE2720d ago

"Bungie has failed to offer enough new features to justify this title as anything more than packaged DLC."

Doesn't sound good.

TheLeprachaun2720d ago

Good thing the review is a load of bollocks then. :)

The Meerkat2720d ago

Don't shoot the messenger.

I've got 2 copies of Reach Pre-ordered.
