Halo: Reach is nearly here. September 14 is the official release date, though some fans may be able to secure their copy with special Midnight Madness events near them. As we noted before, the game will be offered in several flavors, with lots of extra goodies and bonuses bundled with the special editions. For just the standard game, look to pay about $60. To secure the Legendary Edition, expect to shell out $150. Needless to say, Halo: Reach is exclusive to the Xbox 360.
Good news for both Microsoft and Halo fans alike, the initial game reviews I’ve read are all glowing. Here are links to a review at IGN and another that appeared in the Dallas Morning News. Gamers should expect a great game-play experience, whether or not they have played any of the previous Halo releases.
This is the final Halo release for Bungie. After this, it will be up to Microsoft to carry the Halo banner forward. And from the looks of this game, there will be Halo to play for years to come.
Halo: Reach is available at GameStop, Best Buy, and many other retailers and online stores. Retail prices start at $59.99.
