Halo: Reach Beta

So who all is playing it and how do you like it so far?

Personally it does not feel like halo for me at all, with that being said I love it though.

Favorite Class is definitely Armor Lock by far it just makes for the most fun kills.

actually dont like the jet packs in the game but dont mind them all to much.

do you guys play Arena or grab bag?

I have been playing both and I must say there is a big difference in the players that play each. It seams the people that play arena are more serious and know what every ramp, building, lift is called ect..

I've only played it for maybe 30min, just have been to busy/tired to really sit down with it yet... I like the classes and the abilitys you get, but some of the maps are meh.. i was playing CTF on one map and I couldn't figure out how to get the flag back to score.... it apparently was up like 3 levels...

the easiest method fr that map is just go out where yo got the flag, run to the middle area (the open area) there is a lift right there, take that when you have the flag, it will take you to the middle floor and then all you have to do is walk up the stairs right there to score it.

a good idea is to get 8 people together and play a math, instead of killing though just explore, find where all the weapons are, best routes from one place to another ect.. also when you walk by a place it will tell you the name of the place you are at on your screen (for exampl if i am walking on a ramp it will say blue ramp, or things like red lift, sniper walkway ect..) these are good call outs to learn. I played the arena gametype and they were all serious players calling out everything by name ect.. and so i tagged along for a bit and learned the map lingo by them also.

I don't have it but do they actualy have classes now for muli player mode? Sounds like they are using the modern warfare system that may be why it doest feel lik halo

its actually allot like the game section 8

Halo decided not to be in the fore front of new ideas anymore and instead copied allot the top games, like cod, red faction, section 8 among others

they have preset classes now each one have its own armor ability i.e. armor lock, jet pack, invis, sprint

All in all it is a solid game from what I can see. I am really excited for the campaign. It looks really good and Halo ODST was a bust in my opinion.

wow. this is really, really fun. There are so many new situations to get in to! The beta is very fast paced and fun, but I can see wanting to go back to older Halo games to play without the constant threat of Camo guys. And I'm very interested to see how BTB plays out on the full game.
