Even though I know you don't give a shit all my reviews no longer have review scores since I don't like to rate games with a score, that is just me though. I also added where to get the game online.

Story
"Spartans never die, they're just missing in action."
-In-game level description

The story of Reach is a prequel to the Halo Trilogy and casts you as Spartan B312 (Noble 6). You are part of noble team, replacing a lost member (Thom) as you fight the covenant and assist the UNSC to try and defeat the covenant. Now, if you know about the Halo lore to some degree you know that Reach is a place where a lot of stuff went wrong and that is was a huge battle, and that the UNSC lost. From the beginning cutscene you are shown what happens to you, and then time rewinds to the battle's beginning. It is at this time that you meet noble team. From there you must help UNSC forces try and defend Reach, and with each level it is pretty evident that things are falling apart for you and the UNSC defense forces there. But as you probably all know, Reach inevitably falls and you obviously die (before you go about thinking I just spoiled the game, I didn't, that is shown to you right at the beginning).

Guess how well your efforts did Very Happy

Gameplay
"You might need this, it will take the hat off an elite at over 2000 yards."
-Jun

The gameplay has a lot of variety. First off, your appearance is extremely customizable from your helmet to your knee guards to everything in-between, and even has armor effects (like having the grunt birthday effect when you die for example). Your appearance is the same in every mode (unless your preferred species is an elite in which case your appearance changes depending on the mode). The modes are:

1-Campaign-The story
2-Firefight-Play against swarms of covenant until you run out of lives, and with/against your friends
3-Matchmaking-Xbox Live for online multiplayer for every mode (campaign coming soon)
4-Forge-Map editor
5-Theater-Re-watch old matches/games you played

How is the music the same Halo theme? It's a completely new original soundtrack and the original theme is only referenced a few times during the game and you have to pay attention to hear it.

I was not trying to imply it was the same music, I was trying to say that if you heard it, you would recognize it as a halo song.

He probably means the same standards as previous Halo games.
