I gotta admit, of all the game releases, the “Halo” boys always seem to put out the best trailers out there. They’re always expensive, slick, and live-action, giving you a taste of what a “Halo” movie could be if someone finally got their shit together and actually got it made. Well, this latest “Halo: Reach” trailer isn’t nearly as cool as the previous ones, but it’s still pretty well-done despite not showing a heck of a lot.
In “Halo: Reach,” players experience the fateful moments that forged the “Halo” legend. It’s the story of Noble Team, a squad of heroic Spartan soldiers, and their final stand on planet Reach, humanity’s last line of defense between the terrifying Covenant and Earth. This darker story is echoed by grittier visuals amid a backdrop of massive, awe-inspiring environments. Characters, enemies and environments are rendered in amazing detail by an all-new engine designed to deliver epic-scale encounters against the cunning and ruthless Covenant.
