Good Things About Reach

     Now that I've ranted about the bad things, I'm going to tell you about the good things that they've included in Halo 3. For starters, the whole game looks a lot more lifelike. From a first person point of view your weapon and arms sway realisticly as you run or walk. The switchable upgrades are cool, too. There's sprinting, dropping a shield, jet packs (which are amazing by the way) holograms (where a fake player serves as a distraction) and a few more. I really like the sprinting and jet packs, thought. The battle rifle, the choice of players everywhere, has been replaced by the DMR which is pretty cool. Side note: The reticule expands momentarily every time you shoot, so if you shoot very quick it will be much more inaccurate. There are lots of options to change your armor and emblem and generally customize your stuff. You can actually relativly easily blow up banshees, ghosts, and mongooses with the DMR and other weapons. That's another thing about it too: the vehicles are a lot easier to destroy.

  9. I've been fairly indifferent to Halo, but I must admit the multiplayer in Reach is fantastic with a group.
