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.
