Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Halo Reach Beta is Fail

mirgro said:
Finals have been getting in my way to play much, but it seems like a fun game to be played.

However I can't agree with your 'it takes no skill" argument,since Halo games have NEVER taken a lot of skill. They are noobish games plain and simple. They are fun and and great locally and take it for what it is, but if you want to measure your mettle go play UT or Quake. Even CS took more skill than Halo1 and CS was usually laughed at as the game noobs play.

Wrong.  I was one of the top Q3Arena players out there and I don't "pwn" in Halo. I seriously doubt you've played Halo 3 cause if you have you'd know that if you arent elite with the BR then you are done. Same with Reach. The DMR is a gun that takes alot of skill and now with the armor abilities I feel there are more varied tactics to win. Once the pros get the hang of this game is gonna be crazy. Luckily we start on an even playing field so hopefully I'll be good at this one.

I never played Halo 2 online so I was way behind when 3 came out since the games were very similar.

I finally played it and agree with you its terrible. This is going to be a halo thats made for people who didnt like the other halo Multiplayer games. its a very very dumbed down version of halo. Honestly it feels like Starwars battlefront meets Call of Duty.

So you prefer players jumping 30 feet in the air repeatedly, simitaneous beatdowns, and shotgun camping? No thanks, Reach is a better game in every way.

No i prefer jetpack that make you fly 500ft, and I prefer the simitaneous beat downs AND shoots even and I even prefer invisble shotgun campers.

Haha well said! Seriously though im glad you enjoy reach and i dont mean to detract from your experience. But I absolutely despise most of the changes so far like i said it is a very dumbed down version of Halo IMO. So enjoy the game or dont it really doesnt matter to me. The fact is i probably wont be buying reach for many reasons. the crappy multiplayer being just one of them.



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!! 

seems 9 out of ten love the game.. you= fail.

I was'nt impressed with the reach beta graphics are barely better then halo 3 and the gameplay isnt as tight so they need to fix alot if they want me to purchase the full game come september.

Jetpack = easy target. Go ahead and fly as high as possible cause when you hit the ground after running out of fuel you die.

Secondly if someone is invisible its pretty easy to tell where they are by the scrambled radar. The location of the scrambled dots give away which direction he is in. Try to use a little strategy and dont go running into a scrambled radar. Wait till it stops then go find the idiot.

Thirdly there are a lot less similtaneous beatdowns in this game then Halo 3.

The graphics are miles better than Halo 3. Swordbase could use some tweaking. The others look great and are comparable to gears.

I have to agree with you.  The Halo: Reach beta looks massively better than Halo 3.
