    A stellar PC port that uplifts the original's high-quality single-player and multiplayer content with advanced graphics options and solid matchmaking.

    Though not perfect, Halo: Reach's PC port is overall well-done, and the quality should excite fans about the other Halo games coming to the platform in the future.

    The excellent conversion work done by the team of 343 Industries brings a technical section to the screen without significant failure, except for a couple of stumbles that will probably be corrected here shortly, and offers the videogame audience an excellent port, for a title which undoubtedly deserves to be rediscovered.

    If you never experience the impressive story of Halo franchise, Halo Reach is the very first step, and it runs smoothly on PC platform. However,it is such a pity that the Forge and Theater mode are pending, the game still needs some time to renovate.

    Forget the campaign - multiplayer is where it’s at. Impeccably balanced, ludicrously varied, and damn near perfect.

    Halo: Reach has an engaging campaign and numerous multiplayer game modes to keep you pre-occupied. Unfortunately, various issues abound from technical woes and lack of options, to matchmaking problems, and it's hardly what you'd expect from the flagship FPS franchise's arrival on PCs. Like the protagonist's namesake, this effort is more of a "six" unless we see more patches down the line.

    This game is just amazing. Awesome campaign and a really fun multiplayer, well optimized for PC version. Audio needs release corrections.

Even with the enhanced graphics on the PC it looks like something from last decade. The gameplay has not made the transition from gamepad to mouse gracefully. If you've been dying to play Halo you might love it. If you're new to the franchise you might be left wondering what all the fuss was about. Expand

    This game is currently released in an incomplete state. I rarely write reviews on websites like this but I felt compelled to considering howThis game is currently released in an incomplete state. I rarely write reviews on websites like this but I felt compelled to considering how hyped I was for this, and how let down I am. They had so much time and so many betas that the expectation was that the launch would be spot on. Issues at launch include absolutely atrocious audio quality, lack of HDR support for PC entirely, issues with framerate and mouse controls, among other things. The audio quality is really the kicker though because it's so horrible it makes the game completely unplayable. Every weapon sound is completely muffled like it's 480P youtube quality audio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9mY0SFTLjk this is a video displaying how it sounds. I'm going to wait until they fix this or get a refund. Expand

    Listen I love The halo series but this a port and its not doing it justice at all.

    -Sound is muffled, flat and crackly. Sound mixing is terrible-

    -Issues with motion blur, depth of field, etc graphical effects missing outright-

    -FPS drops randomly and often for no reason then picks right back up-

    -More glitches then i remember happening in the campaign and firefight-

    -Progression system while better then the original is still very grindy and has xp cap -

    -Matchmaking system is atrocious- End up playing on the same few maps all the time and only with the same settings which 99% of the time is going to be DMR TU slayer. No way to map vote and no way to configure any settings the way you want. Only a few playlists with no "regular" Reach slayer settings. Its so stupid because of they fixed this alone I would be enjoying it a lot more and this is also probably the easiest thing to fix.
    Did they not expect people to want the regular settings for the game?

    It really is unacceptable that it came out in such a poor state and feels like they rushed it for Christmas sales.

    This game is a broken, repetivive, boring garbage. Halo Reach was already broken enough, and it's remastered version is even worse.
