I just finished Reach and absolutely loved it. Before starting Halo 4 I was thinking of buying Halo 3 and playing through that, so is it better than Reach? how about Halo 1 anniversary? please rank them.
I feel like Reach had one of the most boring campaigns in the series. It's not that it was bad, it just didn't have anything really stand-out.
Halo 3 had a much more interesting campaign, even if I HATED the multiplayer. ODST was a bit different in how it was designed and paced, but it ended up being fairly decent.
I will have Halo 4 in a few days so I can't comment on that one yet, but I'm sure it's better than Reach from what I'm hearing.
Halo 2 has an okay campaign. It's really not that great, but the game's MP is what really sold it for everybody. If you want to start at the beginning you would do well to play Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary which is the remade first game. It is pretty good, although you will notice a good deal of repetition as a number of the levels are just endlessly repeating corridors or backtracking through a level you already finished, only going the opposite way.
Playing - AC3, ZOE HD, X-COM, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Doom 3 BFG, Tekken Tag 2, BF3, Darksiders 2, Sleeping Dogs, The Walking Dead, Lollipop Chainsaw, MAA
reach was bleh to me campaign wise... I had a rollercoaster ride with Halo 1-3...they all had me wanting more after I finished them...
I started Reach on launch..played it 2 days and didn't get back to it until 2012...I really didn't have any motivation to play it until I was a couple of weeks out from Halo 4's release...by then it looked outdated, and the gameplay was old...
Don't get me wrong, it was still fun, but Halo 3 was way better, way mor memorable...and Halo 4 knocks them all out of the water...
