Did Halo: Reach Live Up To It's Hype
Last night I was able to play through campaign of Halo and play a lot of multiplayer online in every gametype. With that being said I think I've played through the variants and looked through everything and want to discuss whether it deserved the hype.
Looking through many comments on the reviews a lot of people are either for it or against it, the main reason being the campaign and how short it was. I'm fairly certain in any of the Halo series there has not been a campaign longer than the 6 - 7 hour mark so any complaints about the campaign should be made to the entire series not just this game. None of the comments complained about the muliplayer mode probably because thats where Bungie put the majority of their time with a new ranking system and a crazy amount of gametypes it offers more than almost any game.
I played with the new forge mode which seems to be very promising, I'm very excited to see what levels people can make. The new firefight mode is also very well done and similar to the one from ODST but have little things added in to help you.
Overall this game deserved a great score but not a perfect one.
