This game quietly vanished from the heat chart

Looks like I can find it in the bargain bin sooner than I thought

Convas2757d ago

And so? Thousands still enjoy its pleasantries every day, so what's your point?

HarryMonogenis2757d ago

Heat Chart? What on Earth? Maybe there aren't many news stories about the game on N4G -- but that's because the game is out and everyone's busy playing it online.

Also, Halo: Reach is in a constant battle against Black Ops on Xbox Live -- they keep changing from 2nd to 1st and vice versa.

But you probably already knew that, right?

AKissFromDaddy2757d ago

I believe the Xbox charts are:
1. Black Ops
2. Modern Warfare 2
3. Halo Reach


Halo Reach fell under MW2.

Gamers can't even agree with proof, smh.

It is a brilliant game though. I am about 100 hours in and still love it. I still haven't even touched forge-world.

Am I the only one who thinks review-scores for mappacks are stupid?
Sure reviews are about personal tastes anyway, but this is getting worse for map-packs IMO.

IMHO Reach is average.

It's doesn't play like a Halo game and many of the additions have been done before and better to boot.

I've played thousands of games of Halo 1, 2 and 3 but Reach is boring to play and watch and due to the randomness of the bloom doesn't feel skilful at all.

Most encounters come down to educated spamming and if you're playing someone half decent there's no satisfaction from winning a battle due to the blooms inconsistency.

I'm really glad Bungie are done with the franchise as they were slipping and their Halo games got successively worse from a competitive standpoint.

The Noble Map Pack contains maps just as bad as those that came with Reach, it's sad that there's only 2-3 decent maps and then rest are terrible or forged abominations.

RIP Bungie + Halo, hopefully 343 can make a better game that is actually judged on it's merits and not hype and tacky additions.

Why do people complain when games stay the same, and complain when the games change. I'm loving Reach's online more than Halo 3, which I barely played at all online.

talltony2757d ago

maybe if you played more halo 3 online you wouldnt like reach as much?

Arnon2757d ago

So... you're complaining that Halo: Reach's multiplayer and maps are abominations and you wish they were more like Halo 1, 2, and 3, and you fail to realize that over half of the maps on Halo: Reach ARE from Halo's 1, 2, and 3.

What more do you want?

m232757d ago

Can't wait, got my points ready to buy the maps tomorrow.

Belasco2757d ago

Its ok, kingnick more than likely has an atrocious k/d and is just pissed that he sucks at Halo.

kingnick2756d ago

Actually it's pushing close to 1.97.

But K/D doesn't matter when a game is no fun to play.

My GT is n1cholas.
