Did You Know?


On December 17th, 2015 Halo: Reach gained backwards compatibility support for Xbox One. Initially the game was wrecked with performance issues when played on Xbox One, with frame rates consistently in the mid 10's and low 20's, rendering the game unplayable. Fortunately in October, 2016 Halo: Reach received a patch that fixed the performance issues on Xbox One. Now the game runs better on Xbox One than it does on its native Xbox 360 hardware, with a steady 30fps refresh rate on Xbox One that rarely deviates. See more »


Many of the firearms featured in the game - both Human and Covenant - never existed before the first Halo game, yet made their first introductions in later Halo games, even though Reach is a prequel to the first Halo. Bungie stated that the weapons were "lost" afterwords. The DMR was a prototype for the Battle Rifle See more »

Incredible, beautiful masterpiece of a game
18 September 2010 | by specialpillsSee all my reviews

I just beat the game after 4 hours so granted, game play is not long but what Bungie did was condense over a dozen hours of tedious "busy work" missions and BS into just several hours of pure excellence--which is what I'd rather have than an empty but long game. The plot was genius and incorporated everything from previous Halo games in a sophisticated, implicit manner that felt like it merged perfectly with this game. Online multi-player is also fantastic with new add-ons like active cameo, sprint, jet pack, bubble shield, etc. (I love jet pack). Also the graphics and physics engine are impeccable and bring both multi-player and campaign alive with realistic, open environments. I bought the game today (9/18) after an extensive debate between preordering CoD Black Ops or buying Reach as I was on a budget. I am so happy that I chose Reach and do not regret it for a second. I know I won't get bored with this game for months to come.
