Not a big Xbox guy, I've only played this version of Halo but holy shit, this game, and its story are a masterpiece. There's no video game like it that will give you the feeling of despair quite like Reach. I don't even know if there's a Halo that catches anywhere near the ambiance and intensity of Reach.

>Covenant aren't just trying to conquer the planet, they're trying to exterminate every single human on it

>Use suicide units
>Glass entire cities until they're smoldering ruins

Meanwhile, you are flying in a falcon thru New Alexandria which is in flames desperately trying to rescue civies and wipe out strongpoints. No matter how hard you try, how many covenant you kill, it doesn't matter. Reach will fall, your squad will be wiped out and you will die. I played this game back in 6th Grade with my best friend and it blew us both away. Are there any other games that will hit as hard as this one?

The covenant is like ISIS so is the UEG is NATO then they must have created the covenant as well…

Word OP this game hits so hard even if the plot is a bit simple or cheesy to some ppl. Bumping for interest. I can't think of any other games with this epic "good vs evil" hero myth sort of plot line though.

The game went as hard as it did on the "end" themes because Bungie knew it was their last Halo game before Microsoft handed the franchise over to 343 to turn it into call of duty with power armor.

Yeah no, the only real good Halo games are Halo 2 (best sequel of any game ever) and Halo 3 (best Halo ever) and for me those two may as well be considered "Halo 2 Part I and II".

All other Halo games are trash including infinite.

Bloom was already a thing in 3, and the sprint function was something they had wanted to implement for a while.

I wouldn't say it was anything especially profound when it comes to the despair. If anything, it was quite short and disappointing, especially considering how far it deviated from the book.

But, I will say I enjoyed the advances it made to the Halo formula. The first game was very innovative in the FPS genre, but it seemed like 2 and 3 just kinda kept the same thing going. This one added sprinting and other suit abilities and made ODST's firefight mode even better.
Honestly had a lot of fun just playing firefight with my brother. I don't play FPS games anymore so there's really nothing we can just play together in splitscreen, everything requires multiple copies and a fucking subscription now.

Bungie hated the books and one of the things they wanted to do with Reach was contradict the book canon to invalidate it.

Fun, Roddenberry did the same to some nerd who made ship design books that he approved of while they were popular.
And then I guess Disney did the same with the Star Wars EU.

Cry harder. The first official piece of halo media was book.

Why the hell storyfags have to ruin all games and make them into interactive movies? Look at gears of war, another good game ruined by shitty stories when people just wants to shoot shit.

John Carmack was right, story on videogames I'd as retarded as story in a porn movie.

>whereas the games after 3 were all shite in terms of story
Want to know why that is?
It's because 343 is comprised of lore cucks who thought that the book lore was actually good
And they decided to make all the shitty badly written books canon to the games
Bungie never liked the shitty tie-in books

 No.17393

>>17384
that's because most marketing department are incapable of understanding that you need to not make your game a movie,and actually integrate the story with the gameplay,but since it's hard and need time,they can't be bothered.

 No.17394

Halo books are trash and most of them are only in English, who the fuck thought it was a good idea to split like 80%< of the story between games and shitty books? I fucking hate "multi medium" narratives like that, fuck that.

 No.17395

>>17394
Also I want to add that the books only exist to promote the games, literally the only reason why the fall of reach exists is because they thought Halo CE would flop and they needed every promotion available, you don't need the book to understand what's going on Halo CE, but you need to read a fuckton of shitty books made by different authors to understand what's going on Halo 4 and 5 (worst games btw)

Depending on them to understand the story is retarded, it only alienates a big part of the fan base and justifies retarded retcons and shitty writing.

It's no worse than games where half of them are exclusives to some shit nobody plays, like how MGS4 was only on the PS3 and the game you need to understand MGS5 was on the fucking PSP

 No.17402

>>17398
Wtf are you talking about retard? MGS and the PlayStation brand were almost synonyms for like 15 years, it was obvious that the games would be exclusive for the PlayStation consoles (at least for a while).

Also MGS PW was ported to Xbox too, unlike fucking halo that stayed on one console for years,not even PC until recently, you can own all Xbox consoles and the games and still don't understand shit because some retard thought that it was a good idea to make the games constantly reference some fanfic tier books that you have to buy separately and are almost impossible to get outside the anglosphere.

Fuck 343, they will never be Bungie (TWNBB)
