Gamespot: Halo: Reach Noble Map Pack Impressions

Although Bungie has made no secret of the fact that Halo: Reach will be its last game in the series, the developer has assured fans that it will support the popular shooter well after release. We took a trip to Bungie's offices last week to see what's in store.

The Noble Map Pack is going to be available on November 30 for 800 Microsoft points. (Thats $10)

IDK about you but I think 800 is reasonable. Considerign that these are entirely new mapes and not just rehashes of maps from halo 3 like what was done with MW2 and is cost 800 and not 1600 ms pts.

Good Review. I've played Halo Reach since launch and got 1000 achievements and reached max rank well till the rank unlock happened and enjoyed the multiplayer but after playing the same maps over and over and other players keeps voting for Reflection it gets boring. Now with this new maps some "new" maps that aren't rehash of old maps like MW2 and selling it for 800 msp is a good sign that Bungie still gives a crap about their fans and how about fixing the spawn points and I'll buy more stuff from them. Also ZeroG is going to be an awesome map can't wait for NOV 30 :)

How'd fallout not make the list. Atleast over cyberpunk, tales , and halo. Fallout been around since what 96 98 and has 5 6 games into it. It's full of lore when you play it. I'd even add star ocean to a point.

robtion336d ago

Agree Fallout should be on there.

MadLad336d ago

And somehow Planescape Torment doesn't even make the list.

Crows90336d ago

Hollow knight surpasses these.

shinoff2183336d ago

In lore? I must be missing something

Crows90336d ago (Edited 336d ago )

Yes in lore. Easily missed... absolutely. Never played a game that had me loving the world and lore behind it as much as that one. Most of course wouldn't be able to experience it since it is a more difficult game.

DarXyde336d ago

I can't speak for all titles on this list, but by the time you get to Dark Souls III, the lore is a bloody tapestry of intricacy

Crows90335d ago

Played them all. Im not saying the games on the list dont have good lore...I just think hollow knight had more lore that is hidden but present and more easily explored and accessed. The souls games have tremendous lore but theyre mostly hidden and stay that way unless you look for it and research it. The lore is not very accessible.

DarXyde335d ago


I think that's a somewhat fair assessment. For me, the Souls games are less upfront about the lore, but it does invite your fascination through NPCs, items, locations, bosses, etc. There's this kind of natural progression where the picture becomes just clear enough by doing the essential tasks, but it really makes you want to explore every inch of the world.

TheColbertinator336d ago

Suikoden and Legend of Heroes also have massive lore setups.

agent13336d ago

narration is more important than lore i'd rather watch the story and characters in a more cinematic way instead of searching for notes and stuff that's why i love sony exclusive games like uncharted and gow and hate from software games

shinoff2183335d ago

The article was top ten lore in video games. I think they did a bad job picking games out. I know what you mean though. I just like a variety of games and genres.

Awesome news - so can we look forward to playing Halo: Infinite with no online issues circa 2033?

just_looken421d ago

"You can download the improved Reach AI mod at Mod DB" This was a mod 343 did nothing so the online will be fixed in our dreams.

SullysCigar421d ago

Par for the course with 343.

Profchaos420d ago

They did say they had a 10 year plan for infinite we just all assumed it would be DLC could of been a 10 year netcode rollout.

But seriously this is a mod the community won't be able to modify infinite in the same way

Cikatriz_ESP421d ago

Combat Evolved was the best campaign, and it's not even close.
