Free Gaming – Halo Reach
Yesterday I played a few games one of them being Halo: Reach. Halo as a franchise isn’t anything new to me. I bought a Xbox 360 with Halo: CE on launch day and never looked back. I played every Halo title through and through except Halo Wars. For this particular article I played a lot of Halo: Reach multiplayer yesterday. Online cooperative campaign, Team Slayer, Invasion and Living Dead. I’m not super crazy about Halo like most people who play the multiplayer are. I however do enjoy it.
Halo is a great franchise I give Bungie credit where credit is due. I always had respect for Bungie and Halo due to the fact they never sacrificed بازی انفجار (soul of a game) for super graphics or putting 32 players on screen for competitive multiplayer. Since Halo: Reach was Bungie’s last Xbox 360 Halo game I decided to play some multiplayer. If you don’t know by now Halo: Reach is a sci-fi first person shooter developed by Bungie Software and published by Microsoft Game Studios.
Since this is a Free Gaming article I can pretty much write about what I want regarding Halo: Reach. Halo: Combat Evolved is the greatest game that any “Xbox” system ever had. That came out of left field didn’t it? I do believe Halo: Reach has the second best single player story campaign behind Halo: Combat Evolved (for a Halo game). One thing I always wanted to try in Halo: Reach was the online co-op campaign. When the game first released matchmaking for the story campaign wasn’t available. I have beaten the story by my self on Legendary. So yesterday I was finally able to play some Halo: Reach in 4 player co-op and it was nice.
The Cooperative matchmaking didn’t take too long maybe a few minutes to find 3 other players. I set all of my search parameters for quick match finds. I haven’t played Halo: Reach in so long but it didn’t take long for me to grasp the feel and speed of the game. Before I knew it we were running through a mission in the campaign (4 people). I was driving a Warhog while other players manning the guns or stole Covenent vehicles to blast away.
The pace was fast when playing online co-op in Reach. Gamers know their way around this game so much its basically a killing spree when the difficulty is set to normal. The only complaint I had yesterday playing Reach in online story co-op is the connection issues with players. I honestly don’t know if Reach uses dedicated servers or is it all peer servers. Anyways the connection got really choppy a few times while I played the Cooperative online component of Halo: Reach. Even with the connection issues Halo: Reach’s story campaign was a blast to play.
