Resolution: Halo Reach review

Resolution's Daniel Lipscombe writes: A cynical person could say that a review of the latest instalment in the biggest franchise for generations is a moot point. Halo, on its own is a beast to be reckoned with, one that has changed the landscape of videogames for years to come. But, for now, this is the end, for Bungie, at least. With such a large title it’s easy to whip out the old review cliché and say that “Halo fans will lap up Reach, while it won’t convert the rest of the audience”, but it’s true. (Halo: Reach, Xbox 360) 8/10

Game X is whatever score you're able to rationalise and substantiate. Opinions aren't objective you retarded little cretins.

This is one of the best comments I've ever read on N4G - Bubbles to you sir.

So freaking true - it's so hard to get people to understand that they are different than the reviewer, and may play a game different, or may like something the reviewer hates.

If you're on the fence about a game, but don't want to throw down the purchase price right away either rent the game, or wait a month or two for a good sale to come along and get it on the cheap. Figure it out for yourself rather than read the review of someone who may like completely different games than you.

The start of the review mentions that only the single player campaign has been covered due to the fact that it's unfair to judge multiplayer before the game is officially released.

“Halo fans will lap up Reach, while it won’t convert the rest of the audience”

I disagree. This is the main and only reason I'm purchasing Reach. I loved Halo 1 but the others IMO where horrible, and Bungie was able to "convert" me back over to their side. If Halo Reach was anything like Halo 3, I would pass on it in a heart beat.

We'll you are a raging XBOX fanboy. When they speak of 'the res of the audience' they're not including those who have such extreme irrational attachment to their toys.

Not trolling XBOX, great system, but you sir are quite then fanboy... thereby your opinion is mostly irrelevant in respect to the masses.

Surely with a site named Resolution
they deducted points for the game being sub-HD.

It looks very jaggy on split screen on a 54" HDTV. Played the demo in frys. But gotta love the old Halo1 battle rifle.

the halo 1 battle rifle eh? I hope that was a typo
DeFFeR  +   1976d ago
forget that he had a typo - there is no demo...

ThanatosDMC  +   1976d ago
Then that was the full game? I was playing it right next to the four huge spartans in the middle of frys. Battle rifle because tier 3 rifles in MAG are called that and they're my favorite guns to use.

a very very very generous review for such average game lets hope Resistance 3 gets at least a 9/10.

Roll on the day when we can have a decent discussion on here without dickheads typing their fanboy nonsense
fanboy is latin for dickhead
squelchy15  +   1976d ago
Lol! Latin is far too intellectual to be associated with fanboys.
DeFFeR  +   1976d ago
@timmyrulz if you get a single disagree, I hope the internet gods melt the motherboard of their computer...

I like N4G because it brings everything together in one communal area - but some of the people on this site are just ignorant.

Oh well, I'll live.

Look I hate the Halo brand but even I think its a 9
All this hate on Halo is stupid because it is a Historic brand like it or not... I have seen the gameplay and i can see why it is a great game. I just dont relate to the game like XBOX users because they have basically grown up on Halo. To an outsider like me it looks fun but just to strange for me to get into... However XBOX fanboys need to stop hating on Uncharted 2 as well. The truth is that the multiplay for Uncharted 2 has the most balanced gameplay ever and it is truly fun and unique. The fact that it is not played much just shows that the story mode overshadowed it as many were blown away and forgot about it. It is easily better than Modern warfare 2!
DeFFeR  +   1976d ago
I don't think that people who are blown away by a game "forget" to play more of it...

UC2 IS awesome. I'm not a console fanboy - but with arguments like yours I can see why people attack you/the game.

You're trying to make excuses as to why UC2 isn't being played online by saying that people FORGOT? This is the lamest excuse I've ever heard.

If you play an awesome single player game, what do you want to do? Play MORE. You don't just sit on your couch thinking - man, that was great and then put the disc back in the case and pop in a different game.

I don't know why people don't play it online more, but I don't think it's because they forgot.

So, they give the game an 8 without reviewing the multiplayer aspect?

We have half a review here. Just saying.
