Well folks, the blessed day has finally arrived!
Yes, the much anticipated XBox 360 game of Halo: Reach has finally come out today, and from what I have read, it is a must have game.
The story takes place in the year 2552, and a few short weeks before the events of the original Halo: Combat Evolved game, with the military and Spartan (think heavily armored super-soldier) training planet being overrun by big bad aliens known as the Covenant. The aliens are big, bag, and take no prisoners. You take control of Noble 6, the newest recruit in the legendary Noble Team, who are tasked with fighting the nasty aliens.
Being the final entry of the Halo franchise for Bungie (don’t worry, Microsoft has the reins now, and will be sure to create more games for this highly successful brand), they go out with a bang. I’m not going to spoil anything for you, but the ending, and the revelations therein, apparently will blow any Halo fans mind right out of their helmet.
Halo: Reach is getting rave reviews from all gaming websites and magazines, and will be sure to be a contender for the best XBox 360 game released this year.
What are you waiting for? Go line up to get your copy now!
