    An Master Chief ain't even in the game!!
    (At least i don't think so, mind you i'm only part way through!)
    TBH i haven't been that impressed with it that far, its a very competant shooter, but i've found that so far it hasn't improved over previous Halo's on the graphics and gameplay side, it just seems more of the same, which i suppose is understandable when you consider that it was previously only going to be an addon for Halo 3.
    Personally i'm now really looking forward to COD Modern Warfare 2, still the best FPS in for me.

    Master Chief isn't in the game, was never going to be in the game. But for some reason Steven has posted that yet again.

    The game play is meant to be different, no more rushing in as no shield, Firefight is where its at by all accounts. As for gfx, what was you expecting? its an expansion, using the same Halo 3 engine, Halo: Reach should be a tweaked engine so some improvements should be seen.

    Its a new game, so why shouldn't they strive to improve the look of it??
    Apart from the shield (or lack of!) i haven't seen to many differences so far, levels on foot, levels with the warthog and tank.
    Don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to put the game down, it is good, otherwise it wouldn't be selling like it is!!
    I guess i was just hoping for something a bit more off the usual Halo track, although as i and beanbandit have mentioned, it is only an expansion.

    Im eager to know what the new Reach engine will produce. The interwebz is already rife with rumour speculating Reach is going to at least be different because why else would they have a beta.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Wow what a thought provoking ground breaking comment. Got anything constructive to say? If not, then find somewhere else to get free shipping from Scan.

    Was there any ever doubt it'd shoot to number 1?

    Anyone played it? Reviews are good but I've not got around to getting it yet.
