Halo: Combat Evolved is the only Halo game that is worth experiencing in Single Player. The others, while having neat gameplay mechanics and do show off some of the more large scale events, are so poorly written that it isn't even worth trudging through. Nothing is explained well, let alone presented as such. Bungie openly admits that the story is built around the combat, which is why the story blows.

Jim and I have played a lot of ODST and Firefight, and that mode is pretty good. But of all of the multiplayer (which isn't really my style, so I don't care for the series in general), Reach is probably going to be the best in the series. It is built upon an established story (though how good is it really?) and the game is mostly rebuilt from the ground up. This is the way Halo should have been for a long time, but it is a little bit too late for me. The fun is gone, and good military shooters like the Battlefield series wash the floor with Reach's attempt at squad-centric objective-based combat. Reach will probably turn out really good online, but for me, this series is dead.

Halo: Combat Evolved is the best in the series (so far, since Reach is coming out in the Fall) both Multiplayer and Single Player-wise. Halo 2's ability to go on Xbox Live had me playing for ages, despite it's lackluster Single Player. Once Halo 3 rolled around, I wasn't expecting much, and good thing I wasn't. Single Player was a major letdown, and the Multiplayer left much to be desired. And ODST? I played through that too, I must be a masochist. Even if it had Firefight, I couldn't bring myself up to play it any more than I had to.

The main problem I had with ODST was it's cheesy acting in the single player campaign. I was actually looking forward to it, and walked in with high hopes. Big mistake. As soon as the first cinematic began, I fought the urge to mash all the buttons I could to skip the scene. Though, I'm glad I didn't, since the only decent part was the actual drop into the city, and seeing that it took place right after Halo 2's Metropolis level. The thing I actually did like about the gameplay was the fact you weren't virtually invincible; lacked an overshield. This made me play a lot smarter when I approached groups of enemies. But even with that...I can't get passed that stupid "love-interest" thing.

The only reason my friend kept his copy of ODST was to try the Reach beta. I gave it a shot too, because I've gone this far, why not go all the way? I was actually surprised by what Reach had done with multiplayer. I actually had fun playing Halo again. Though Reach's squad based (semi-class based) multiplayer is somewhat a breath of fresh air to Halo, it's been done before (ie; Battlefield). I'm not going to get my hopes up too much for Reach, but I'm looking to play that game when it hits the shelves.

...And sorry I wrote so much. I hope it's not tl that you dr.
