Cast / crew
Mankind’s worst enemy, the Covenant, have set their sights on planet Reach. As part of Noble team, you meet them head-on but it quickly becomes clear that this will become a race to a valuable piece of tech that may hold the key to avoiding humanity’s extinction.
Halo: Reach is unquestionably the best Halo game since the first one, Halo: Combat Evolved. The core shooting experience is very good and there’s an agreeably somber tone (culminating in an unusual final level where you SPOILER play to your unavoidable death as humanity’s final resistance on planet Reach). There’s a big jump in graphical finery this time with no technical shortcomings to point out and a space combat mission proves a nice change of pace. Halo’s most impressive feature remains opponent AI who are quirky, fun and devious with harder difficulty levels utilising clearly more advanced tactics. Though it’s frequently unclear where you supposed to be going and what you’re supposed to be doing, the levels are interesting and fun to play in with all the toys and vehicles and weapons that Bungie give you.
This game contains mild swear words and violence.
