Halo Reach Review Review
IGN Review

Halo: Reach is a fantastic package, with several core components that on their own can outclass many other games. The campaign is excellent, backed by solid storytelling and a powerful audio-visual experience. The competitive multiplayer is familiar, yet brand new with a lot more options and a faster pacing. And the cooperative Firefight arcade mode has finally met its potential. Whether you like playing with friends like me or you're more of a lone wolf, Halo: Reach has evolved to the point where it'll make everyone happy. It's a fitting end to Bungie's involvement with the franchise, one that both references the past and injects new life into a tried and true formula. Newcomers and Halo fans alike will find plenty to love in Halo: Reach. Even if you've grown tired of the Halo formula through the years, I'd still recommend this game to you. It's just that good.

10 Presentation
A package that all other developers can look to as the definition of complete.
9.5 Graphics
A few stutters here or there can't stop this from being an incredible looking game.
10 Sound
Once again, a masterful soundtrack.
9.5 Gameplay
Familiar, and yet brand new. These are some of the best first-person shooting mechanics around.
9.5 Lasting Appeal
Little things like more maps or a better way to hop into custom games could extend the long life even further. Even so, there's a ton of content here.
