Still a 5 star game,
This review is from: Halo: Reach (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
There are very few games whose single player campaign is as engrossing as Halo's. It could be that people's expectations have been set too high, although the truth is, if you compare Reach's campaign to any other FPS on the market it is head and shoulders above the rest. It's Epic in every sense of the word and that's exactly what I wanted.
I'm a massive fan of Battlefield Bad Company 1 & 2 but their campaigns were merely a prelude to the multiplayer (which I prefer over Reach). Regardless, I have always bought Halo games knowing the campaign is worth the price alone.
For finer details read the other reviews but as a fan of the franchise (not a fanboy) I'm happy to recommend Reach.
Anyway, Reach has plenty more to offer long after the campaign is over. Multiplayer isn't for everyone and I have my own alternative preferences but Reach is still fun and worth investing the time into. It's balanced and everyone has access to the same weapons from get go. Maps and gametype are varied and plentiful.
I haven't even played Firefight but again it's another gametype which sounds excellent. Fight off waves upon wave of covenant with your mates or just other randoms online. Dice charged for this very same thing on BFBC2 and Bungie threw it in as standard.
I've paid the same for other titles and received a fraction of the content. Regardless of some obvious over-expectation, Reach is as good as the expert reviews have said.
