The world's first Halo Reach review has landed - with respected US mag Game Informer giving the Bungie game a whopping 95 per cent score.

The mag calls the title - which is released worldwide on Tuesday - "the true follow up to Halo 3".

The true follow-up to Halo 3?!?! What an outlandish statement, those Game Informer fellows have simply gone bonkers!

That's what they meant.

Not surprising. In a world where 60% is the low end of the scale, 90-95% is about average and pretty much expected of a game with such a brand as Halo.

I don't doubt that it's a good game though. It makes me wish I still had an Xbox, something I couldn't say for Halo 3, and ODST didn't really trip my trigger either.

If by that you mean what this says in the sticky:

Quote:
Things that might not be considered news:
with Video game reviews under it, then the key words are "might not be". It doesn't mean NONE of the reviews are news, or that they aren't allowed in this section. If a general majority of posters thinks it isn't news, then I may move it, but I'll leave this one since it IS the first such official review of the game.

Edit; er... k, someone else seems to have moved it now.

Why, because they got a high score? Yeah, that must be it. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that it is a good game.

You honestly believe game reviews aren't paid for by game companies? Especially releases like Halo?

I think games like Halo and the CoD series speak for itself in that they don't NEED to have people paid to write reviews for them asap.

if you read the books, then you know the ending.

forge is the only part that seems fun to me because i can also play with a friend to enjoy the features.

If VG was paid then, this could have been passed off as a 100% im sure and nobody would care because even VG know they themselves should not be taken seriously. In no way am i judging this game. I always wait for metacritic or the zero punctuation.

Another thing. I dont like all this selective halo bashing. First it was HAlo 2 ending which was fine. And now Halo 4 or whatever it was called. Meh shut your pie hole VG. I would not p*ss on you if you were on fire. Halo 2 was better than Halo 1. There i said it

they don't follow it exactly, but you still get the point. the last remaining Spartans are defending reach from the covenant, but inevitably the covenant still glass the planet and MC escapes and it starts at the halo again. although the names are different and there is apparently still one last group of Spartans lost in space.

POSSIBLE SPOILER BELOW

Didn't the doc run off with the sniper, IIRC? I always wondered what happened with her. Could be in 3, I could never get into that one.
