Why Halo Reach Is the Most Disappointing Game of the Year

It's hard for one to feel a sense of overwhelming emotional tragedy when, even during the admittedly effective ending, everything is as scenic as a tropical island tour. The island just happens to be a bit foggy sometimes.

Worst of all, Halo: Reach doesn't have any memorable moments outside of its lead into Halo: CE, and your final moments (as a nameless, numbered nobody). (Halo: Reach, Xbox 360)

Okay, I don't think Reach deserves all the hype nor the high scores (my opinion)?

But most disappointing game of the year? I doubt that.
Moonboots  +   1404d ago
I only disagreed because I feel it's worthy of the praise it has received. It's a good game and at first glance at the title I don't agree with that statement at all.

Haters gonna hate.
Cevapi88  +   1404d ago
its less about hate and more about getting hits....sites like these dont have an affiliation to a console or a certain brand....they come up with these titles to get people to click and read...easy money if people get pissed off...that's their whole business plan, i can just imagine a meeting in which they go "hmmmm, what title can we come up with to piss off gamers this time, OHHH I KNOW, lets rag on a game that is a 4 million first week seller"

It's funny; the writer claims to be a fan of Halo and to have waited for the game for 9 years but claims to be disappointed. The game is pure fan service, start to finish. No memorable moments?! SMH. I'm sure we'll see more articles like this in the coming weeks.

There are two sides to this....
there are haters who tries to bring it down and who tries to talk about overhype.

and there are xbox fanboys who try to exaggerate into best game ever....

it's got 92 on metacritic and 8 reviews were from site with "xbox" in their name.

i think it is a great game, but the ads, marketing and fanboys made it bigger than what it is.

@Natsu X FairyTail

"The Influx of lames Rushing to this articles is huge. "

Thats odd...because you are already here.

@Windex

Have you played it??? How do you know that it was made bigger than it actually is. People on this site tend to make it smaller than what it is. Did you ever think about that?

"it's got 92 on metacritic and 8 reviews were from site with "xbox" in their name. "

So no PS3 game gets any reviews from sittes/magazines with Playstation in the title. GTFO

Not to mention that just because a website consistse purely of xbox related content doesn't mean theat they are automatically fanboys that give the game higher scores than it deserves.

The same can be said about both factions. There's also sonyfanboys that will always over exaggerate a game or exclusive like it the second coming. I can name a few but that's not the point. I do agree that there are haters on both sides. But your clearly trying to make your arguement one-sided.

Edit: oh and I'm sure if you check many of ps3 exclusives/multiplat game score on metacritic/gameranking you will also see a lot of ps site reviewing the games and giving it high scores.

bitmob.com: "You know why Halo: Reach is the most disappointing game of the year? Because we want hits!"

That being said, I could actually understand being so totally hyped for what is, arguably, the final of the best your system has to offer. If it's not a 15 on a scale of 10, then you're naturally going to feel a little sad that it's over, and that it's not a 15. I liken it to how I felt after The Matrix: Revolutions.

THAT being said, an article that was genuine with such a bold statement should be written as more of an homage to the game than a list of complaints.
Spydiggity  +   1403d ago
wtf
did any of you bother to read this article before accusing him of being desperate for hits or being a sony fanboy?

the guy clearly loves the halo franchise and is obviously quite familiar with the story, so even if he likes sony, it has NOTHING to do with it. second, the article is rather well written and the points he makes are spot on. i felt EXACTLY the same way while playing it.

i mean, come on, here we have a company (Bungie) who KNOWS this game is going to make a billion dollars and yet they gave us nothing new, nothing impressive, or amazing. they just gave us another budget title banking on the name. don't get me wrong, reach has rejuvenated my love for the halo multiplayer, and is better than ever (i play it at least 2 hours every night); but the single player is exactly what this guy said...boring. i wouldn't say you shouldn't buy this game, cuz the multiplayer carries a TON of weight, but if you're the type of person that only plays a game for the campaign, reach is a swing and a miss.

i do agree,however, that the title probably should have been different.

When I see an obvious flamebait title like this I simply don't read the article.

It's not that people aren't entitled to their own opinions on Halo Reach or any other game, it's the fact that they make their titles sound like a factual statement which is a slap in the face to all those of use that really enjoy the game and think it is actually one of the best games of the year.
Garrus_Vakarian  +   1403d ago
@StanLee
I'm a long time Halo fan and I found the story disappointing. As anyone who's read the books would know, Halo: Reach retcons at least 2 books worth of canon. It's very disappointing that they made these retcons, and the product of the retcons doesn't even justify the retcons.

I'm glad 343 has complete control over the Halo series. Hopefully they'll have better consistency than Bungie did.

NOTE: Overall Halo: Reach is a fantastic game, though like I said, I'm disappointed in it's story. It's told in a good way. The retcons make it less enjoyable for me.

haters gonna hate. all of the sudden everyone claims to prefer treyarch to infinity ward, clearly IW kicks trey in the groin when it comes to good quality games. trey's games never reached AAA status b4, until black ops actually do that then..............everyone is complaining there's no dedicated server for PC........blame who? blame themselves for not purchasing the game for PC, PC gamers pirate the damn game, the sales of modern warfare 1 is like tiny tiny portion of the total sales, i know customers always right but all the PC weiners do not give IW enough incentives to support them more. Halo reach is disappointing........blah blah blah, ask that idiot one thing.....which console game actually packed theatre mode, forge, firefight, crazy multiplayer offerings, crazy customization, campaign, campaign co-op, great graphics(i said great not some of the best ok), cool soundtracks, tight FPS gameplay..............into one game ? developers have limited time and fund for each game,do your damn maths, being able to implement so many shit in one game with these limitations is mighty impressive, bungie is phenomenal and as phenomenal as they are, they are not god! of all the shitty developers out there making A games and worse you don't bash you bash halo reach and bungie, tell me how are you suppose to promote quality and value for money in this industry ? my way is to criticise top developers hoping for further improvements from them and give them credits and praise for their wonderful achievements and contributions but not entirely dismissing them for little flaws. so......the safest way in this industry is to make AA games right because people will call you a great game, underhyped, underrated, unappreciated.......right ? everyone will be like ohhhhhhhh... poor game, i will buy you. all the constant hating and bashing halo franchise received has slowly diminished its popularity and acceptance, halo games are rated lower and lower even in metacritics, what many developers failed is to judge the game independently of its predecessor, scored it lower because reach is pretty much been there done that due to past interations, how about for people who never played halo before ? why is halo reach scored lower than halo 3 when its significantly significantly better (even if halo 3 is released in 2007 and reach is 2010), i know, because reviewers are either influenced, exactly like the rest of the haters or have to satisfy haters with their unreasonable blind hatred.

or........

lousy website looking for hits.
when a game is as popular as modern warfare or halo, it's is easy to be used as resources to generate hits and fuss.

Article made sense, but the title did not match the article. Bit of a sensationalist title if you ask me.

I had the exact same disappointment in the campaign. The characters were uninteresting and I just didn't care about them. I'm not a big fan of the Halo universe, but some personal character interaction would have made it much more enjoyable for me. The first Halo did a decent job of that with Cortana and the Chief, even if there wasn't much character development, their interaction was interesting.

But I get why they did it this way, if you like Halo lore, you probably loved this campaign.

Blacktric  +   1404d ago
"Halo 3 has issues, but it still stands out as one of the most exciting single-player games I've played. Launching up and into a Scarab from an ATV? That's awesome. Reach rarely feels like anything more than an exercise in walking up to buttons to trigger the next ho-hum cinematic. Even the slow-paced space battle bored me."

Completely agreed. They tried a more "human" approach with ODST and it was obviously a tryout for shaping up the characters for Reach. But hell it didn't work for me. Sorry, but when you build up a great franchise with memorable characters for 10 years and make the last game you make a prequel, I'm sorry but most of the gamers won't give a sh*t about what's gonna happen to the new characters that you choose to include into that game. We already knew how it's gonna end and a campaign like that makes it more and more unbearable. I even bought the Limited Edition so I could discover some secret things about the game's campaign/storyline, but it made me feel like I bought another MW 2 Hardened Edition.
ABizzel1  +   1403d ago
I had high expectations for Halo Reach, in that it would be the first halo game I'd actually buy, and so far it's been good, but not GOTY good. There a ton of multiplayer stuff, but most of it's recycled from the previous games which is fine.

Halo Reach deserves a 9/10

I kind of agree but if you get into the hype and get yourself totally physced and expect something extra special you will get so disappointed and probably think its the biggest of the year.
I also kind of agree with windrex it is a great game no doubt but it got rubber-stamped before anybody even saw so much as a screen shot as GOTY in their eyes because it was Halo and it would stay that way no matter how bad it was. I'm not saying it is bad far from it but its not GOTY material just a great 360 exclusive.

I thought the storyline was pretty good, and each Spartan's death scene were a pretty epic way to go out or I was like "WTF?!" I don't know what the author was expecting; and he sounds pretty arrogant to expect the game to play out the exact way he's wanted it to.

To each his own I guess, you can't please everyone. But the majority of Halo fans thought this was a great sendoff for Bungie from the series, and I agree.

I see a lot of conflicting opinions here. Some of you are saying "This guy is a total PS3 fanboy because he doesn't like Halo" and others are saying "So because doesn't like the game he's a troll and/or fanboy?"

This guy's number one problem is that he expected too much from the campaign. First of all, there were plenty of "Oh, no they didn't" moments. Like in Winter Contingency, when you first arrive, you see all the cryptic evidence that something horrible has gone down. Or when you got jumped by those Zealots in the Relay Station and they dragged the marine away with them kicking and screaming?

Or Tip of the Spear, how the entire mission goes to hell, they rework their strategy, and when it seems like everything's actually going to turn out right, BAM, Super Carrier shows up. Or in Long Night of Solace. A crazy plan becomes reality, they head to space, they get things going, plans are once again disrupted, a sacrifice is made, and it seems like things are actually going to work out (again) and then BAM!! The Whole Covenant Armada shows up.

Also, let's not forget, we're playing as Spartans, for someone who's read the books, you should already know that they aren't exactly a happy-go-lucky bunch. They're trained soldiers taught to rein in and suppress any type of emotion that may hinder the success of a mission. (Halo fan right? Riiiiight ....) Halo: Reach went from small time skirmishes to outright invasion in the lattter missions, so yes, the ALIEN APOCALYPSE was right in front of your eyes.

I won't say I wasn't a bit disappointed with some parts, I could complain that we didn't get to fight any Scarabs, that Bungie didn't experiment with various Malekgolo forms (Mini Scarabs and Super Ginormous Hunters from Halo Legends), and that they didn't do an Infection Survival/Co-Op mode with actual Flood Zombies (DLC FTW).

But besides that, Halo: Reach was a VERY memorable experience. Of course, everybody is entitled to their opinions, but this guys presents his viewpoints very badly.

"Wait, who the hell is that guy? What does she do again? Where is my squad during gameplay?" That depends. That's clearly outlined in Cutscenes, they get sent different places, they stay back and send you to do the dirty work, it goes on and on. Very lame question. And all the characters are introduced over time. Kat's the tech specialist (You'd have figured that out, especially if you and your friends were so "quiet" during cinematics. Emile's the Bad-ass loner, Jun's the Chatty Sniper, and Jorge is the Kind-hearted Heavy Weapons Support. Carter should be a no brainer right off the bat.

Really, I grow tired of these "Halo" fans complaining about things and not even trying to distinctly back up what they are saying. Playing Halo CE, 2 and/or 3 doesn't make you a fan son.

"Worse, half of 'em suddenly disappear altogether during the cooperative game, so I don't see them, never mind learn about them." This is pretty much one of the most retarted things I've ever heard. You're Co-Op partners take the place of the spartans who would've been playing with you DURING CO-OP.

A fan of the series would've been keen on this (If you'd been following Bungie's weekly Dev Blogs).

Again, everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but this guy is trying to yak on a great game under the guise of "Halo Fan" (Where've we heard that one before?). He uses poorly framed questions and his statements contradict each other. Which is the reason Mitch Dryer's article on Halo: Reach is the Most Disappointing Article of the Year.

Having read the books as well, I was pleased with the story in Halo: Reach. I'm not quite sure what his expectations where going in, but I suspect they may have been inflated enough to set you up for disappointment.

I came across plenty of "Oh, s#?t!" moments like the destruction of the UNSC ship in Tip of the Spear after Noble 6 et al took out the Covenant tower. I found it a great piece of foreshadowing that punctuated the contrast between effort and overall outcome. Or in Long Night of Solace, the epitome of a special op, where a desperate situation spawned a crazy idea that again, foreshadowed the endgame. (@Clizzz, I see that you and I see eye to eye on this point.)

If you're looking for Shakespeare, a video game isn't the place to look. If you're looking for strict adherence to canon set by a book, I thought we'd all learned years ago not to expect it.

The story provided just enough context to frame the action as it was with all the other Halo games or most games for that matter. That's all I expected, and with that in mind, I was pleased to find a story that gave me a little bit more.

I get the sneaking suspicion that the article was born of unrealistic expectations and a bit of hyperbole.

masta i agree with you, i own the game and its fun and all but its nothing special. Belive me, if Halo reach was a FPS with a totally different name and a new IP, it would be getting reviews of 7s and 8s. The graphics still look outdated, even the controls feel outdated, its just another Halo. Nothing new.

I just dont see the hype for the Halo franchise. Sooo many better games out there that deserve the same amount of hype. I honestly think the only thing keeping Halo on top is nostalgia. People buy it because its Halo. pure and simple
poopface1  +   1403d ago
lol I completly disagree
just because you dont like something doesnt make it average. Reach is far above average.

The polish and content of reach is unmatched. Its not even my favorite FPS, but people ragging on the SP are just grasping at straws.

Reach has the best SP since halo 1, and easily the most content and multiplayer features of any halo GAME, so in my mind its the best halo yet.

The Sp took me 12 Hours to beat on heroic(not sure if that includes all the time from me dying) and was pretty good. I hated the story of halo 2 and 3 so this was great to me. Not to mention you can play it with 4 player co-op. That alone has more value than alot of Campaign only games. Not to mention Firefight, forge and theater can all be played alone if you want.

People judge the SP in REACH more harshly than they do SP only games, simply because they are hoping to piece together some BS complaints about its weakest link.

Unfortunately for them, the weakest link in halo Reach is still stronger than the entire chains of most games.

Noone will like every game, but people can only lie to themselves when they pretend a great game is average because they don't like it.

I buy alot of "great" games, and very few of them keep me playing as long as reach already has. So although I may not like a game, I can still tell the difference between great but not for me, and average.

Massively disagree. Alan Wake is one of my favorite games this year.
