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

Thanks for reading my post.

 

And also, yeah, master chief was running away from the covenant in reach like a little bitch.

This game fails in so many way to its predcessors its a joke. So there is the stalker, guard and airborne and scount classes. They are probably

wants ruining the expierence for me. They are so lame and pathetic its a joke and completely make the halo game not feel like a halo game. I

feel like im playing crysis and using my special abiltys that are super unbalanced. Ive been playing halo since the very beginning and dumped

 tons of hours into the game and played halo2 and 3 quite competivley. Has of the past two hours this game is NOT a halo game and should

have been bungie's new ip for activision. Going to play some more tonight and hopefully get a better expirence.

The graphic realism in the game seems quite high, judging from that clip >_>

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.

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.

Ok I understand the resemblances.

But what Reach does is balance and matchmaking to perfection.

MW2 is so unbalanced at times. kills are nothing more than better equipped than your foe. Also Matchmaking is something Halo will always be the frontrunner with. It's the maps where COD really falls down on, as well as game modes.

Reach has a balance just not found elsewhere. It's faster than Halo 3. More tactical than MW2 or Halo 3 and the maps are 9 years of experience.

It's one of those games where everything you thought was perfect about it's predecessor has it's faults shown with it's sequel.

If other games were trying to better Halo 3, and got close. Reach has just extended that gap hugely again. Cant wait to play Invasion and Generator Defense.

If Reach's graphics were like Halo 1's it would still be the greatest online experience Ive ever had. It's funny cause while your playing you really couldn't care less about the graphics. Even for a graphics nut like me. The fun had is that overwhelming. God Headhunter is amazing.

So i dragged myself through 4 more hours of beta this morning.

I completely disagree with everything you just said except for the matchmaking being the best and halo will always be the front runner that is

true. The voting system is great also. The balance in this game is terrible, if instance I was scount with bone hammer and ran around just to

show people how broken this game is and completely does not play like a  halo game.  Also I went like 15 and 0 being the stalker class before

my controller died on me and I just shut off my 360 laughing my ass off thinking that the game I just played is supposed to replace Halo 3. So

want am I supposed to check every little place to find stalker people? What if my whole team decides to use stalker? Dont even get me on

armor block lol....so when you fail so hard you can press LB to have a secound chance lol

One time i got stuck by a plasma grenade and did my armor block and I was fine..then I killed him..the guy was yelling all over the mic saying

want bs, I simply said this is no halo game so dont worry about.

 

Faster then Halo 3 so waiting for someone to come out of armor block speeds up the game? Also pacing in general and jumping are slower and

you dont jump nearly as high.

Its one of the games were if you acutally played H2 and H3 online your  like "wow if it isnt broke dont fix it"

Reach just ruined the Halo name and the competive play that you were able to expirence to a more pick up and play game. I hope Halo is

removed from the name and just have reach there. Hopefully 343 industries can make Halo 4 and just build off of reaches engine with H3

gameplay. This is game is far less tactilc then Halo 3...no more fighting for highground or overshiled or active camo.

Reach looks awesome. It is a totally different angle of Halo because Reach was lost. You're looking at it as if it is supposed to add to the Halo Universe in the future. No....this is a prequel of the past before Master Chief became involved and Reach was lost including the new developmental projects being which could've helped during chiefs time. You're not looking into this properly. See it for what it is and not what you want it to be.



I didn't like the abilities at all, i mean running should not be an ability should be someting anyone could use. and i hate that the running gauge won't recover until you finish it. The jet pack should be an item not an ability, i hate that there are so many people flying around. The unvunerability and the invisibility should be an item just as in halo 3. But well the game is cool so far. Another thing i didn't liked was that you can choose a map out of 3 or so. because people will just choose the one they like and you always play in powerhouse.



this guy explain reach very well and why it doesnt feel right... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgm1aIgaIgk



@ OP: ...And this is why we have a beta! Just post at the Bungie forums and tell them what you think, post constructive feedbacks, send them messages, ask them to have modes without the loadouts, etc.

We have a power, as customers, to decide to buy the game or not if it doesn't satisfy what we're looking for. If you think Halo needs to be the same game all the time, go ahead, don't give them your money, but remember that there are still people out there who like the new features (there are some things that need tweaking to make the experience better though, this I'll admit).



Random game thought :
Why is Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 getting so much hate? We finally get a real game and they're not even satisfied... I'm starting to hate the gaming community so f****** much...

Watch my insane gameplay videos on my YouTube page!

Really. LOL.

Sorry but you would have been destroyed in some of the games I have played. Your playing noobs man. Halo veterans will mow you down if you play like you just described.

Armour lock is really for being swamped. Doing it  1 on 1, will get you wasted. Like the guy with a sticky on you. If someone armour locks while 1 on 1, I laugh run back from them wait 2 or 3 secs and let go of a normal grenade. It sits beside them, their lock runs out and its goodbye my friend.

Anyone complaining about the abilities hasnt played against anyone decent. The abilities are aids that everyone has. I have played quite alot of Reach about 12 hours. I am Sargent Grade 2. The guys I am Matchmaked with are seriously good. And Armour lock is by no means the choice ability.

Get your skill rating higher and come and play the big boys.

Stalker. Any person moving in Stalker is visible. I have had so many Stalker guys cursing me in Free For All because they donr understand the millions of tactics Reach has.

By all means hate the game. By all means dont play it.

But 1 thing is for sure. Reach has so much more tactics and possibilites as it is, I really cant be arsed with Halo 3 anymore.
