Nostalgia time... PC version, starting from scratch.
Loved playing this game years ago.
It may look a little dated, but they have certainly enhanced the graphics.

A few months back I installed Halo CE and have been playing through it in anticipation of this. I played 1, 2, and 3 but never played Reach, so I'm excited to give it a try.

Yes Bish, the game is great fun, and as stated, it's been given a bit of a face lift graphically... and yes a bit dated, but I've always been a fan so it was a must buy.
I could never get on with controllers, but playing it on the pc is much better, (for me).

It's all going on up there on Reach... we are getting ready to give the Covenant forces a bit of a kicking!

Looks fun. I played some Halo 1&2 on the original Xbox. I never finished the campaigns though. I'd love to get this collection on PC someday. Nice screenshots.

Thanks Coot... Really enjoying it so far, although there is a sound problem they need to fix, and they have acknowledged that, so it should get sorted in a future patch.

Reach has been getting hit hard by the Covenant so far, but we have destroyed quite a bit of their military infrastructure, and after blowing a rather large comms tower, we are about to get dropped into the meat grinder once more!

Are all the Halo games in this package right now? What number is Reach in the series? I think it looks pretty darn sharp. I love a good Scifi game.

Hi Coot... Info on Reach.

''Halo: Reach is a 2010 first-person shooter developed by Bungie and published by Microsoft Game Studios, originally for the Xbox 360 home video game console. The fifth installment in the Halo series and a direct prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved, Reach was released worldwide in September 2010.''

As to your other question... Reach is the only game released so far, the others will follow on in sequence as far as I am aware.

Some classified ODST 'Orbital Drop Shock Troopers' footage during an intense firefight with Covenant forces, probably in the vicinity of New Mombasa...

Wow. That was pretty awesome. I had never seen that.

I finally finished playing through Halo CE on my laptop just before Christmas. I'm waiting for some money stuff to settle and then am going to buy Master Chief Collection and start Reach. I've never played it, so it will be all new.

Finally bought Halo MCC.

The campaign story for Reach is OK so far. Graphically, I'm happy, since the last FPS I played before this was probably CoD: World at War.
