Morbid's Gaming Talk Show #2 - Halo ReachLast time, we talked about probably the most violent video game of all time, Manhunt. This time, we're going to talk about one of the greatest video games of all time, Halo Reach. It's the best shooter game that ever existed, even better than any Call of Duty game, but there was one game better than that which we'll talk about in another episode.
Halo Reach was the final game in the series made by Bungie, one of the greatest video game developers of all time. However, Bungie did continue on making a not-as-good series called Destiny, which was about a guardian who blah blah blah, you probably already know what went on in that game. Anyways, until then, all we had was Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3, the crappy Halo Wars, and Halo 3: ODST. The last two games probably weren't even needed, but the original Halo trilogy was great, with Halo 3 being the best game until this game came out. Instead of Master Chief taking the spotlight, we have the second last spartan to live, the lone wolf, Noble 6.
The Campaign was pretty good. Each mission was fun to play. Winter Contingency was a great starting mission nothing like the others which start in the middle of space. Nightfall was fun to play because me and my brother would've beaten it in under 5 minutes on LASO (Legendary All Skulls On). Yes, you have skulls that make the game harder for you, like Enemies have double health, or your minimap is removed. After playing a lot of missions, you get to the pillar of autumn, which begins the Halo 1 story. However, before you play the first halo game, you have to complete one more mission. The goal of the mission was to die. That's it. The last mission was the easiest because all you have to do is die. You can try to survive, but you'll realize it's impossible to beat.
The Multiplayer was fun to play, mainly because of all the great gamemodes like Grifball and Infection, the great maps, and forge mode that lets you make your own maps and gamemodes, so you could make a cops n robbers map. In the end, you save your replays so everyone can see your nice streaks and confetti popping up and children screaming 'YAY!' when someone dies. There's also firefight mode where you have to fight off enemies without dying.
The Graphics were great, and unlike Manhunt, you can actually still enjoy the game even after beating the story. It should take around 9 hours to complete, but another hundreds of hours are added to enjoyment with it's great multiplayer and forge mode. It isn't nearly as violent as other M rated games, but still very fun to play, and better than Overwatch. However, if you do somehow get the game, keep in mind this game was made in 2010 so there may be probably only 30 people playing multiplayer today.
The Verdict: 98/100
+ Great Story that begins the Halo Trilogy
+ Best Multiplayer in any shooter game
+ Create your own maps and gamemodes
- No Master Chief
Next up is the only game better than this.
I love this Halo altough their is one better this is close the multiplayer is near perfect and Halo Wars is one game I will never like - christangrant
