M2G Review: Halo Reach

M2G Writes:

Halo Reach is by far the best game yet in the series and you can tell a lot of love has gone into this game. Whether you are buying for the campaign or for the multiplayer, it’s both epic in scale and nature and is a perfect end to a wonderful beginning.

Well so far out of 38 reviews in already...The average score for Reach is a 9.4. Which is a well-deserved and absolutely great solid score for the last Halo game Bungie will ever make (for the for-seeable future)

Of course, the score would be a bit better if GiantBomb (the main one I've seen) didn't give it a poor 8/10.

And you know what...people complain about people like me because I complain about sites giving Reach an 8/10, as if it were a bad thing. Its not that I dont think its a bad thing, I just look at other games such as MW2, which they gave a 5/5, and then look at these games like Alan Wake, Halo 3 ODST, Skate 3, etc..all get 4/5's and apparently Reach is on the same level as them? This is where the whole /5 rating score blows, and they need to improve it.

Giant Bomb is unbiased. They gave God of War 3 a 4/5 because it was too much of the same. Sound any different from Halo?

Yea but c'mon. Reach has SP, MP, Forge 2.0, new Engine, new charcters and charcter models, new weapons, new environments, spread out battles and way more scenery, new armour affects, and you get the idea. GoW3 had what? polished button mashing gameplay and that was it. Not saying that GoW3 was a bad game, but I'm just trying to get this point across to Gertsmann that the 5-point rating system doesn't really work anymore. (should be 10-point standard or grading out of letters)

Even though I'm a little underwhelmed by Reach, GoWIII -the best looking game on the market- had very restricted value in comparison. Why can't all games be great experiences, pack a great deal of value and sport excellent graphics like MGS4, Gears of War 2 and Uncharted 2..? :(
