    • My thoughts on Reach...

      9 years ago

      GothWerewolf

      So I have played the official "Multiplayer Beta",

      Oh boy, where do I begin with this?

      I have been a fan of Halo for 5 1/2 years now, first game was Halo: Combat Evolved. A monumental game that redefined the gaming industry with a colossal title, spanding a fanbase in the millions; and with a total gross revenue of over $1.5 billion. Bungie's most successful game title, Halo, has received its sequels like Halo 2, 3, and ODST.

      As a personal perspective, Halo 2 was the game that invented the Xbox Live experience on Microsoft's last gen console. Who knew that a near failure of a video game project as Halo 2's original faith would be, contrasting into becoming one of Xbox's most infamous titles? Sounds like sheer genius, though Bungie rest assured the sequels would become even better. They were, somewhat right...

      Halo 3 was the epitome of hype. With the regular edition, and everybody's legendary exclusive edition for the PC; also counting countless merchandising including action figures...Halo 3 reached its hype. Was Halo 3 good? At first it was, but it pales in comparison to Halo: CE. What was wrong with it? The story and the repetitive multiplayer, EVERYTHING you have seen in Halo 3 was rehashed Halo 2 story for its campaign. The story is not too bad, its saving grace are its characters that we have known to love in the past 9 years of this franchise. Halo 3 was most acclaimed for its customization. Armor, Forge, and Theater were the very things that made this game successful. Halo 3 utilized the same Havok engine that Halo 2 used, they only updated the graphics, tweaked the physics engine, and added a few new weapons and abilities. Without the characters of the campaign, and the customization for Halo 3's Xbox Live; this game would have been crap.

      ODST I personally enjoyed more than H3's campaign. With its new perspective, quirky humor, amazing score and intriguing story; it beat Halo 3's campaign to the punch. No dual-wielding, no BR and no equipment. Just like the good old days.

      Then comes Halo Reach, the very last Halo title to be developed by Bungie Studios. As you know, Bungie and Activision have developed a worldwide intellectual agreement to develop a new title. This, however, is a whole different issue. On May 3, 2010 I played the beta. My thoughts?

      It's simply not Halo.

      Before I begin this discussion, I know this IS a Beta and changes are expected. But this is my own personal critique I can fathom, and hopefully a few suggestive objectives to what Bungie should do to perfect this game.

      Reach's graphics are AMAZING down to the very detail, the quality is high res near the MW2 level. The gameplay itself is not very bad, but not very good. Halo CE was a perfect game in engineering and scripting. But since then, Halo has received some serious issues with gameplay fundamentals. Halo 2 is where it began.

      These issues included weapon glitches, you can fire all bullets out of a BR with a combination of buttons known as the BxR. Unlike Halo 1 where you had a powerful duo of two weapons (Pistol and Assault Rifle), we now had a Battle Rifle, an SMG, and the meagerly weak Halo 2 Magnum. The BR however, created a new community of Halo fans that came hardcore clans and competitors; such as MLG (Major League Gaming). Us old skoolers did not like the BR, including myself. The SMG is a mini-popcorn machine, and the pistol was shit.

      The biggest problem that every game, Halo 2 and AFTER have developed is this system:

      You pick up a shotgun, your opponent picks up two SMGs and sprays you down; takes your shotgun and they get a killing spree instead by simply camping.

      Halo 3 fixed many of these issues; but created many, many more. The BR became the "Everything" weapon, you can headshot anybody with a Battle Rifle in-hand. The one who aims best always wins, there is no counter weapon for this gun; there is no other equivalent asides from the Carbine which is possibly more balanced. To treat us old school fans they brought back the Assault Rifle, and simply re-skinned the pistol to "look" like the Halo 1 pistol. The dynamic duo of weapons still was not there, the assault rifle simply became a noob weapon. Spray + Melee = Kills all the time, decreasing the level of skill and dumbing down the weapon. The pistol...oh well... is fucking gay. Halo 3 was also slow, but not as bad as Reach.

      Reach wanted to create something different. First ultimatum was increasing abilities and constituting new gameplay, that's how they created "Reticule Bloom".

      ....

      Reticule Bloom is for faster paced FPS games like L4D or COD. They put reticule bloom there so it won't be too fast, with no reticule bloom those games would be crack-speed. Halo does NOT NEED RETICULE BLOOM!!!!

      I hate it, it's so stupid and pointless. Bungie put it in there so it would decrease the randomness of bullet magnetism, but Reticule Bloom was the wrong way doing it. It creates more randomness! Reach is also really slow, I may as well be running in green shit. No wonder everybody sprints...

      Which brings me to another point, Armor Abilities. I enjoy sprinting and jetpacks, that's it. Active Camo is something that should be placed upon a map, not available within a load out; so now anybody can camp with an active camo anytime without waiting for respawn. Armor Lock is the most retarded thing to ever be incorporated into a Halo game. Was a bubble shield not enough for Bungie? You can activate Armor Lock and take no damage, run right out when the other guy is reloading and splash! Make a frag. That's how stupid it is.

      Weapons are another issue. Frag grenades are way too strong! Some weapons are too weak, (DMR, Needler Rifle, Assault Rifle). Some are perfect, (Pistol, Focus Rifle, Plasma Repeater, Sword) and some need work (Plasma Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Gravity Hammer and Rocket Launcher).

      That's about it. I have faith Bungie will fix these issues. If they do, Halo Reach will be near-perfect.

      Personally, I don't wish to get into the problems. It's only going to make things worse, so I don't see why I should. I do take Gatana's side, but I'm not going to start a hate-war on you - I'm just happy to let it go and hope she comes back.

      Sorry, but I'm not going to pass on your message.

      I did hear about it and since Peter cullen is doing the voice I think it has potential. But still need to find out what characters are in it and who's doing the voice acting (I'm big on voice actors!)

      Good comedy, bad comedy, doesn't matter. Comedy takes a modicum of intelligence to actually understand and appreciate, unless it is the very basest of so-called humor, aka "bathroom jokes", then the average redneck will laugh because they can relate. Fact.

      Life is life. You know. You wake up, do things, do other things, eat, shower, do more things, etc. Very very boring and mundane.
