Old Games Worth Revisiting: Halo Reach
While we specialize in making modded controllers for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and even Xbox 360! But we also love to play games and today we are starting a new series where we look at an older first person shooter game that we feel is worth going back and playing.
Halo Reach (2010)
Ok, so you may think that telling people to go back and play a Halo game and a Halo game released in 2010 and classing it as old is kind of weird. But Halo Reach is one of the best games in the series, but it is also a game that does not get the love it deserves.
Released in 2010, Halo Reach is actually a prequel to the first Halo game. The basics of the story are that the alien race known as the Covenant has put a real beating on humanities resources and the planet of Reach is next in line to be taken down by the Covenant. Instead of playing as Master Chief. You play as Nobel Six part of an elite team of Spartans who has been sent to Reach to try and stop the covenant and figure out what they are doing there. The story is excellent and I would say that this is the one game in the series that does not require you to have played any other Halo games to enjoy it. Of course, if you are into the Halo lore, you will appreciate it much more.
Game play wise, Halo Reach is not reinventing the wheel, but that is ok. It is just so much fun to play and interacting with the other Spartans is really cool and there is a sense of comradery here. The different weapons that you can get, both human and Covenant are cool and in general, it is just a ton of fun to play. Part of what makes this such a great game is the planet of Reach. At the time Halo Reach was released no other Halo game had a world that felt as alive as this.
While many people would have gone back and revisited the older Halo games thanks to The Master Chief Collection (which our modded Xbox One controllers are perfect for) Take the time to also go back and experience this gem, it is one of the games that is actually backwards compatible on Xbox One so there is no excuse.
