Its a shame, the whole game is leaked all over youtube and on file share.

Does look cracking though.

Too many releases that, for me, far surpass Halo in replayability and just sheer enjoyment... in other words, Halo is crap, if I'm buying a shooter anytime 'soon', it'll be Gears of War 3.

Yeah, I see what you mean,Noisemarine. Aside from Halo: CE which was a solid title when taking in to consideration the other games out around in its time, I'll agree that the trilogy in general is quite flawed in various levels. I wouldn't go as far as to call it all 'crap', though.

However, Reach looks to be rather different. I've seen most of the game already and it's quite a change of pace. It's a serious take on what should have been a serious story since the beginning. Soldiers won't say out of place wisecrack remarks, the Xeno aren't fluent in English and likewise don't share a comical attitude to their crusade against Humanity. Hell, most of the planets Human population speaks Hungarian. The overall atmosphere of Reach is quite grim as well. You encounter civilians who've had their realities utterly shattered and everyone knows they're fighting a losing battle against an innumerable and advanced foe from the beginning. It's just a matter how how many Covenant can you take down with you.

As far as replayability is concerned, you have an improved Firefight. Quite similar to Horde mode of Gears of War 3 this time around with player vs player support and a ridiculous level of mode customization. There is also the improved Forge system and Forge World that will allow players to, using the provided building blocks, create their own maps. A feat that few console games these days can can boast.

So anyone who has a grudge against the Halo trilogy thus far might find Reach to be an exception to the rule. This game is practically a reboot to the franchise, though it is Bungies last Halo game before they move on to a completely new IP. Which I see as a good move less they attempt to milk the franchise bone dry like the Call of Duty titles are headed.

Though in my opinion, the Gears of War games have always seemed pretty unappealing to me. The plot is invisible and sadly undeveloped. The characters are rather static/2D aside from Dominic I guess and everyone seems to be on a hefty ration of steroids. Though it is the gameplay that makes GoW truly fly. Few games can pull off third person shooter game mechanics successfully like GoW does. Now that GoW 3 will have 4 player co-op, it looks like the campaign will be a blast.

Calling it crap might've a tad... heavy? I've looked at the previews and it does look better than all the other games in the franchise. But, all in all, it isn't exactly my type of game. For now I'll just let my friends and my brother buy it and play it with them.

If I were to think about buying all the other games I want to pick up, and Reach... I'd need to get a better job and scrap the thought of buying a car.

All that said, Forge World looks great... could have a lot more fun with it this time around.
