Remind me again why Reach was bad

Armor Lock and Sword Block alone were enough to make me rage for centuries.

Other than those, though, I liked the game.

What do you all mean by "bloom"?

A "TWEWY Hipster"? I'm not sure if I should be offended.

You shoot your gun, your reticule gets bigger. In particular, it was on the precision weapons.

The bloom was just realistic,


This implies that either:
A SPARTAN can't control the kick from a 7.62x51mm NATO round at all
or
The Navy is making a rifle that can't handle a 7.62 500 years from now.

Neither one of these is plausible.

To anyone who says to pace your shots:

Unless both parties let the reticle completely reset between shots which NO ONE did, it was a coin-flip; no skill required.

Reach was my favorite Halo multiplayer (so possibly my favorite online multiplayer ever), and I loved the campaign and its scoring and commedations stuff. Loved it. Loved that whole game. Honestly, if they had just patched Armor Lock so that it only worked for long enough to unstick yourself or destroy an oncoming vehicle (also known as "how it was meant to be used"), it would have been near perfect.

There was nothing wrong with the Needle Rifle. I should know: I picked it every time I played Slayer Pro so I could get those delicious plasma grenades. I never had to worry that my opponent was using a DMR.

I enjoyed Reach as well. No idea why there was so much hostility towards it..


Hostility for Reach stems from:

- OMG I'M NOT MASTER CHIEF!

- Armor abilities.

- Different from the book

- Bloom

- "Made MC seem useless" is what a lot of people say. I disagree with those people. For all anyone knows, he was still being his badass self. It was war, no combatant is going to be watching the news to keep up on MC's latest exploits. They have bigger things to worry about besides how awesome MC is.

The list isn't in any order really. Keep in mind that Reach was one of my favorite Halo games simply because it was different, and the campaign was enjoyable for me.

Reach was just unfun to play. Customs were bad, along with BTB

Forgot to add in bloom for one of the reasons people hated Reach. Those are, without a doubt, the top reasons I have read about why people hated Reach.
