Jeff Bakalar takes a look at Halo: Reach for the Xbox 360, the prequel to the Halo series of first person shooters.

>> Hey, I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com, and we're checking out an exclusive look at Halo Reach for the Xbox 360. Bungie Community Director, Brian Jarrard, stopped by our CNET New York offices to give us a taste of Halo Reach, the highly anticipated next game in the Halo saga. >> The covenant have already arrived. The battle for Reach is going pretty bad. So our hero's noble team have decided to take the fight to the covenant in a place where they might not expect it. >> While Reach is the latest installment in the franchise, it happens to be a prequel taking place before the events of the entire Halo trilogy. Now, there are plenty of improvements in the game. We were most impressed with the visual jump in Reach over the last Halo game, which was called ODST. Halo Reach runs on a brand new gaming engine, which means it's able to display better graphics and allow for more enemies on screen, overall providing a much smoother game play experience. For those who may have been disappointed in the graphical abilities of past Xbox 360 Halo games, Reach will surely satisfy the most critical of gamers. Brian showed us various new modes in Halo Reach, but we were most excited to see an updated version of Firefight, the fourplayer coop mode that allows players to completely customize their individual gaming experience. We also checked out the addition of space dogfighting [inaudible] campaign, which is also available in coop mode for up to [inaudible]. You can join in on the fun when Halo Reach hits stores this September 14th, exclusively for the Xbox 360. I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com, and this has been a look at Halo Reach for the Xbox 360. ^M00:01:44 [ Music ]
