For the integrity of this review I feel its only fair that I first explain my standpoint on the Halo series. I was a late bloomer to the Halo franchise, playing Halo 3 first.

So as we all know, Halo 3 was very much the peak of the Halo trilogy, which, really, should happen in every series of games, the newest is the best, but then came Halo 3:ODST which proved the idea of 'The newer the better' wrong, because it was terrible, and every player around the world knew it...

So this is it, The Conclusion to the halo series. The last game Bungie will produce, but will it be as popular as all previous halos’, and will it live up to what we expect. The first three halos are basically master chief kicking ass, then ODST came along, and no more master chief? We were all...

Product Information : Halo: Reach (Xbox 360)

Manufacturer's product description

Halo: Reach, developed exclusively for Xbox 360 by acclaimed developer Bungie, is the blockbuster prequel to the best-selling Xbox franchise of all time. It represents the culmination of Bungie's 10 years of experience crafting groundbreaking Halo games that have raised expectations for what can be achieved in a video game. In Halo: Reach, players experience the fateful moments that forged the Halo legend. It's the story of Noble Team, a squad of heroic Spartan soldiers, and their final stand on planet Reach, humanity's last line of defense between the terrifying Covenant and Earth. This darker story is echoed by grittier visuals amid a backdrop of massive, awe-inspiring environments. Characters, enemies and environments are rendered in amazing detail by an all-new engine designed to deliver epic-scale encounters against the cunning and ruthless Covenant. Once the campaign is over, the battle continues online with an unparalleled multiplayer experience that expands on the award-winning suite of features that helped define the Xbox LIVE experience. Welcome to Noble Team. Halo: Reach immerses you in the ominous and heroic story of "Halo: Reach" as you play as a member of Noble Team, a squad of iconic Spartan soldiers, each with deadly talents as unique as their individual personalities and customized gear. An Intense and Epic Campaign. Live the events that set the stage for the "Halo" trilogy as the UNSC and Covenant clash at the height of their military power. New weapons, vehicles, and abilities complement the familiar "Halo" arsenal for the largest-scale battles ever witnessed in the "Halo" universe. Fiercely cunning artificial intelligence adds depth and complexity to each encounter, helping make every play-through a unique and challenging experience whether players go it alone or connect with up to three friends to launch a cooperative assault.
