      Well by now some of you (if not most of you) like me has tried the public beta test for the 10 days that it went live. Now that it is done here are a few observations I made. I won't go and explain all the differences and changes as some have been said in the magazine reviews.

      HAL0 reach is like they tried to pull the best things from HAL0 1 2 and 3, then add some new thing to make it a different game but still a great game all together. From just the weapons standpoint it plays allot like halo 1 in which there are no more duel wieldable weapons, which is good because no dual wield combination could match any single weapon switch/grenade combo. The pistol has its zoom back though still a shorter range, and the plasma repeater fires allot like the halo 1 plasma rifle. The covenant counterparts (or copycats) of UNSC weapons have been given a unique ability to state their own characteristics that separate them from the UNSC versions. The needle rifle is like the carbine only with the needle effect and the focus rifle replaces the beam rifle only it fires a continuous stream. These weapons focus more on precision as hitting your target multiple times rather than accuracy of hitting a vital location (the head) once or twice.

      The new armor abilities do change the pace of the game a little as with sprint/evade and jetpack abilities make it quicker to get from one point of the map to another. With these new abilities one might think camping is dead except for the cloaking and armor lock which are more defensive oriented abilities which is used more effective in static and tight quarter positions. Of course jump strafing is still in vogue and focusing on headshots as the pistol/dmr/needle rifle/sniper rifle do more damage with headshots. Heck if shields are down a grenade hit to the head (even a frag grenade) will kill before it explodes.

      Vehicles are still in play though with the new armor abilities and some halo 3 weapons aka Spartan laser might make someone think that they are just death traps if it wasnt for 2 things. The damage they could take was improved and the splash/damage was increased. Basically it is easier to kill then to keep from being killed.
      File does not exist.
      I remember in past halo previews where they say they try to take the single player experience and put them in the multiplayer maps. Well with the Spartans vs elites this time they succeeded. A few objective oriented game modes aka generator defense and invasion puts the elites as the attackers and the spartans as the invaders. Elites and their weapons are usually better in close range while the Spartans and there lower health and zoom weapons are better at longer ranges.

      Still there is nothing new on the campaign though. The only thing we know is like ODST you are not the Master Chief but instead a member of an elite UNSC special forces team fighting the covenant, unlike ODST you will actually be helping them instead of taking a nap in your drop pod while your buddies do all of the heavy work. Other than that there is nothing although with the invasion and generator defense modes with the elite commander narrating the events it dose make you wonder if there will be a covenant side of the campaign.
