Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Halo Reach Beta is Fail

I thought it played like Warhawk with Spartans... I kid, I kid!

I personally liked it although I've only played a few matches at a friend's house (not having a 360 myself obviously).

It was still fun but it felt like there was more depth at the same time. I also liked the new engine and the chunkier feel. There were hints of some balance issues, but I haven't played enough to be sure. I figure that achieving final balance is probably one of the goals for the Beta so I'm not worried on that score - yet anyway.

Too early for me to have much more of an opinion than that but my general experience was very positive.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Around the Network

After playing the pc for awhile now and going to controller I am doing fine with aiming now where has good as I was. I have no problem with the weapons...I dont even remmeber complianing about the weapon nor the shooting...its an improvement.

The perks I do not like...I just played a game with the stalker perk and it was so easy to get kills.

Anyway COVEY SLAYER is where it is at....they only have invade which is very neat and the game feel like halo 3 did in a way.



It's your opinion. But I loved Halo 3. And Reach is alot better. It makes MW2 seem old in innovation.

Bring on the Reach.

played the beta some more...I still cant beileve it has halo in the name...this should have

been bungvision new ip not Halo. Combat is very slow and the default speed is terrrible. This

game will never be has great has H2 or H3 as far and multiplayer are concerned. I understand

why they put reach in the name and not 4 now. Dont want to ruin the "main series". Hopefully

343 industries takes halo back to its roots being a highly competive shooter and skillful

instead of some armor powerup, skillless game,.


slow? judging from videos its runs pretty fast like UT3 style of play

If it's not Quake 3 it's slow ya know?!



MY HYPE LIST: 1) Gran Turismo 5; 2) Civilization V; 3) Starcraft II; 4) The Last Guardian; 5) Metal Gear Solid: Rising

The game play feels alot differnet, its def more like CE  than 3 but it does feel wierd and the ability to spawn with jetpacks, camo,and an invincability mode does make the game kinda dumb. However scout is decent since you can sprint but the other loadouts seem to over power scout and you really feel slow when ure another loadout, sprint should be included in all or get rid of loadouts.

with all the loadouts and new game modes Reach is more like MW2 than halo 3, the promoshot of reach is just like the cover of MW2 except the guy is a spartan with a suit.

The only way the beta failed is that it took me 1 hour to get into a match, i played 2 my friend played one then he left the queue to change his avatar so it could wear the Reach beta tester hoodie" he is dumb" and after an our and a half i still couldnt get into a match but i guess they fixed the servers so its all good

I like it 200%.
Even with tons of new features included, it still feels "Halo".

On the other hand, I don't find the graphics very good compared to the videos...that is probably because it is a beta I guess...



 

Evan Wells (Uncharted 2): I think the differences that you see between any two games has much more to do with the developer than whether it’s on the Xbox or PS3.

Ya know. I could bitch and bitch about the StarCraft 2 beta like you are bitching about the Halo Reach beta.

Please keep in mind that all you are playing is a beta. It's not the final game.

Another thing, the reason why the game plays slowly is because it is a prequel to Halo. Obviously you never read the books or at least didn't read Fall of Reach. Master Chief doesn't have Mark V armor yet :P


ITs an online beta and Im preety sure the game should be balanced and everyone has Mark V, the game is slow and it has changes. Sc2 is not 100% balanced but the game remians the same. Also i read fall of reach along time ago...nice try, trying to "lore" me in the game...

i agree panda. @ snesboy, your not a spartan 2 and this game and ure not the master cheif so him having armor or not doesnt affect the game and if the armor makes the wearer slow why can the mk3 spartans sprint. BTW since you read reach you should know that th spartans you play as in reach arent even the same version as the cheif

The graphics probably are not going to change very much.  I believe they stated that there will be some SSAO added that could not be done in time for the beta.  I find the graphics respectable.  Not the greatest thing on earth, but they get the job done.
