honestly.... the halo saga lost it for me. I was a die hard halo 1 fan and have put hundreds possibly thousands of hours into that game... then Halo 2 came out which blew everyone's minds cause you could have TWO MACHINE GUNS, PLASMA SWORDS, AND ROCKET LAUNCHERS LOCKED ON!!1!!!1ONE! Hundreds more hours down the drain, but then halo 3 came out... and it was over.
I'm getting pretty excited. I wasn't sure how I felt about the beta, and wasn't sure if I wanted to buy this or Black Ops. But now after watching more and more videos of the reach gameplay and forge etc.. I'm definitely going with this rather than COD which I think will probably be too similar to MW2 for me. That's just my opinion though, lets not make this a fight between COD and Halo again.
It feels like Reach is going to be more like ODST with mostly non-super spartan main characters. The online is looking pretty good though so I'm probably going to pick it up after seeing what people say about it.
you must be 13 years old if you think halo 3 was the best game ever. Halo 2 was better and Halo 1 is the best console FPS (they should release it with the same graphics and everything and live but that's another discussion). Halo reach is between 1 and 2 for me (judging from the beta). If you hated halo reach it's probably because you suck so just go play COD
The fact that you think graphics are more important than game play makes me question your judgement.
The average gamers fascination with amazing graphics is why almost every new video game sucks. Most companies focus more on looking pretty than actually being fun. I don't know about you but I play video games for fun and competition when I have free time from school and sports. If I want good graphics I'll go outside
