Halo Reach anybody?

Anybody excited about the release? I'm not much into the multiplayer, but I do like the campaign. CoD has spoiled me with sprinting and iron-sight though. Anybody know if either of these features have been added?

I'll be picking it up tonight, I believe they added a class or 2 but it is just sprinting or jetpack. Just need a change from COD MW2 for awhile until black ops comes out.

I'm off to get it. Hopefully there won't be a huge line at the Lake Worth location.

I pre-ordered through NewEgg. ($10 off)

Looks like my game is in Mesquite right now so I'm betting I'll get to play tonight.

I'll grab it tonight probably. The multiplayer looked cool when i played the demo.. but i'm really still waiting for black ops. I hope it doesn't suck.

Free beanie, blowup plasma sword, and a $20 gift card. I'm just gonna give the beanie, and sword to my roommates 10yr old when he comes over this weekend. At 26 yrs old, it's not that cool to wear Halo apparel. Oh yeah, was up till 4am playing the campaign, it's pretty sweet. Ammo can be a scarce bitch though for human weapons. From what I remember though, that's been pretty typical of Halo since 3 came out.

So how is it?? Anyone? My brother stole my 360 sold etc ect.... long story. But i've been debating on weather to go pick up a new 360 and halo reach until black ops comes out. Wanted to hear some opinions on it first though.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

I ran through it last night on legendary with 2 of my friends. I liked the game a lot even though the gameplay is a little different it's still a lot of fun. There are several new weapons and some were really cool! I haven't really got a chance to play firefight or matchmaking, but heard that both of them were pretty great. Overall so far it's a great game!

Played it at a friend's house yesterday. It was cool, but I felt it delivered nothing extraordinary enough that made it stand out amongst the other halo games. I will say however that the single shot battle rifle kicks ass, as well as the needler rifle.

It's Halo without the flood. The story is better than the story for 2 or 3, but not as good as 1. There are "armor abilities" including sprint, one where you charge up your shields(not sure what it's good for, but on a preview I saw a ghost run into somebody with it and the ghost exploded), there's a hologram which I never used, and a jetpack. The jetpack was cool and the sprinting is great. It's definitely worth renting for the campaign, and if you're into online play I heard there's 21 maps.

I think it is okay, played a couple hours of multiplayer yesterday. It takes a few minutes (literally) to get a match, but you get to vote on what to play based on four choices. When someone leaves the game they never got replaced like in COD. I got stuck in a 1v4 and 2v4 which was not very fun just getting spawn killed. The jet packs are cool as well as the holograph ( you can send a holograph of yourself running in a straight line to a point) its nice to have the sprint feature as well. I'm on the fence about the single shot BR but it is awesome in SWAT. To me it just doesn't seem as smooth as I want, I haven't played Halo in a long time but I used to play a lot of 2, it just feels slow moving.

If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that!

I got it yesterday and have been playing firefight and am maybe 1/3 thru campaign. In a hotel room with a shitty sdtv, can't wait to get home and play on the 50".

I've always liked the halo series, so while it's not leaps and bounds ahead of any of the others, the refinements are well placed and overall i'm impressed. It did however take me a few minutes to get my head back into playing halo after being on MW2 for so long. It was weird not being able to lay down..lol
