    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.

With consistent updates the game has been well supported since they fixed it and more importantly brought it to Steam. Expand

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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the first Halo game I have put any real time into, I didn't have to pay for it as a friend bought me the collection as a gift. But I can safely say that just this game alone is worth the money and I can't wait to play the rest. The story is very decent and holds weight, most of the characters you meet in your team in the game do end up dying which I feel like was intended to hit harder emotionally than it actually did for me which was kind of disappointing as it brought the emotional level of the story down a bit for me, but it still served it's purpose nonetheless. The combat is fun but nothing crazily different from any other shooter from the 2010's so not bad at all just nothing to set itself apart. I played the game on heroic difficulty, which definitely added more challenge to the game but could also be a bit frustrating at times making it feel like some of the areas in levels where there was little to no cover were impossible to complete. but I managed it anyway. The graphics are okay, it kind of weirded me out that they decided to make halo 1 and 2 look enhanced in the mcc but none of the other games. So even though they re-released the games in 2019 they didn't bother to enhance this games graphics. they aren't bad for 2010 standards, but could have definitely done with a touch up. I can't say much on the multiplayer as I haven't put much time into it but what I have played of it I found it fun with no matchmaking issues or lag so no complaints from me.
    Overall a solid solid game with decent combat, a good story and challenging gameplay when played on heroic. With some flaws as all games have, but nothing major.

    Honsetly, if I had to describe this game in one word, "average" is the one that comes to the forefront.

    The graphics are okay, I guess,
    Honsetly, if I had to describe this game in one word, "average" is the one that comes to the forefront.

    The graphics are okay, I guess, it's a quick remaster of an older game, I don't really care - it's clear enough, supports 4k native, I don't really need much more. It's nothing special though, and if you really care about graphics, you'll definitely be disappointed, there are definitely much better remasters out there.

    The sound design is not quite up to par to other Halos in my opinion, nor is the music. It's nothing too bad, but it's worse than you would expect given, especially the music, is mostly very good throughout the series.

    The gameplay is not too stellar either - while it avoids some of the shortfalls (infinite spawning enemies, too many constricted spaces, etc.) of the oldest entries, it also leaves a lot to be desired. The balance is not all that good, a lot of the weapons are pretty much useless - either their accuracy is crap, their damage is crap, or their amount of ammo availability and carry capacity is too low, which is again worse than the other games in the series which are generally much better in terms of balance. However, there are some space and flying sections that work surprisingly well and were perhaps the most fun parts of the game.

    The story is again forgettable B-grade scifi action flick, everyone is hardass badass hero, and so on. However, I don't want to spoil anything, but I actually liked a lot what they did with the ending. Also, there are no cringy teenager jokes unlike most other Halos, so that's a plus in my book.

    Overall though, it's just a painfully dull ordeal that you kind go through and forget, it's not gonna make you mad, but it's not exactly exciting either. Also, despite the setting, the color palette is much duller, because that's what was cool at the time - grey and brown and nothing else. Bleh.

    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.
