Halo Reach Beta: First Impressions

May 4th, 2010 § 0


Got to play the Halo: Reach Beta today for about an hour. First impressions — Feels alot like Halo 3. Sure, controller layout has changed slightly, but the graphic fidelity doesn’t seem that much better(if at all) and sounds are exactly what you would expect from Halo. Movement feels slightly faster, but barely perceptible.

New weapons, I like the feel of the needler rifle. The new replacement for the battle rifle doesn’t seem much better than the standard machine gun– though admittedly, placing headshots has never been my strong suit during multiplayer.

Armor abilities – sprinting is only good for sneaking up behind someone for a melee kill. Rocket pack either makes you a floating target or lets you get the drop on someone. Shield seems useful to some degree. And cloaking doesn’t really matter in any of the oddball or skull modes since you get a big number over your head showing off where you are anyways.

I left feeling not too impressed overall. Just seems like more game modes for Halo 3 with no duel wielding. You die so often in the game that health packs are pretty much useless. By the time you even get to one, you’re probably already dead and respawned. I do like how some of the game modes are designed to funnel players into each other. However, after a while it just becomes a carousel of death that repeats with no real strategy to it. Perhaps this will change with the more objective based modes scheduled for the later release.

What do you think of the beta so far?
