Well it got a 9.5 on IGN
http://www.ign.com/videos/2010/09/12/halo-reach-video-review
I don't understand how it can only get a 9.5 when a game like SUper Mario Galaxy 2 can get a 10. It's ridiculous. Games with only a story mode and without many things shouldn't get a 10 when a games with all those things and more and multiplayer gets only a 9.5 i just dont understand y

@castlehominid99 There are a lot of reasons actually. For one thing, a game like Galaxy 2 does not need anything other than a story mode. There's a co-op mode, even if it's not really that great, but some sort of "online competitive multiplayer" in Galaxy 2 would NOT work, which is why it's not there. Just because a game doesn't have multiplayer and another game does doesn't mean the multiplayer game is better because "it has more stuff." Galaxy 2 had 242 stars to collect, and as you got closer and closer to the end the challenges became VERY hard, topping it off with that last star (which after probably more than 100 deaths I still have yet to beat... although I'm sure there are people that beat it in less time but you get the point). There's a new idea introduced in almost every galaxy, of which there are 49 of. Oh, and also, reviews are opinions.

Umm...wanna give me a reminder of how I've sh*t on every thread on the "Other Gaming" section again? Last time I remember, I've just grudging tolerated most threads in the section, not ruined everybody's fun.

So, uh, what makes this Halo any different from the others? Is it just a new story and new aliens/equipment or did they actually change something else?

Well I wanna play the story mode in Halo:Reach but I'm not big on FPS online stuff so I'm gonna wait to pick this up second hand.The new features (Jetpack ,Armour etc) sound really fun though and the graphics look improved over previous versions so I'll definetly be playing this one down the line.
I'm sure this thread will be filled with Halo/360 hate soon enough so I'll get out while I can

What's this bit for again?

how can you criticize the Wii one for being generic when it's not even out yet?

It's Activision.

I might pick this up in a few weeks.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Oh, I never said you have....yet. This is far from the first hype thread in the other gaming section, and I was curious if you were going to barge into those also.

They just recently changed the review scale. It would've scored higher if they hadn't changed it (9.7 or a 9.8)

Best thread ever

@luigi
Sadly the Halo hate seems to already have arrive, lol.

@castlehominid
I wouldn't worry too much. The difference between a 9.5 and a 10 is pretty small.

I probably would have stuck SMG2 in the 8 range, but to each his own

Well, it is a sequel (prequel, to be more accurate). That's what you expect.
The multiplayer has received an overhaul, and the firefight mode has been rebuilt. That's not counting the new forge mode, either.

But are there any new single-player gameplay elements? Like, significant ones? Thanks for replying, BTW.

It's still completely beyond me how these horrendous games are able to get so good reviews. Just because something is popular doesn't make it good, or even decent in this case.

No problem! There is a new space combat component, although that isn't supposed to be overly long. Other than that, I think most of the single player tweaks are in the core engine.

So you've played Halo Reach? No? Didn't think so.

But why would it be so popular if it wasn't good? And tell me, have you played it? No?

Sorry, i just couldn't help it. Everytime i hear anything about Halo, i just have to bash it a little. It's all because of the huge dissapointment i experienced when playing the original game. Of course i haven't played Reach, but i bet it's pretty much "the same old Halo", which may be good to some and bad to others.
