Halo: Reach

by Larry Frum

Spoiler: The Whole Game Is About Saving Cortana?!

Platform: XBOX 360

Battle the Covenant forces on Reach? Sure. Isn’t that what Halo games are all about? The game follows the exploits of Noble Six, part of an elite team of Spartans, as they battle the Covenant invasion. Many of your comrades will die. You, yourself, will die. But not for the glory of saving Reach or destroying the Covenant.

Your real main mission is to save the artificial intelligence Cortana, who will accompany Master Chief on his missions and be instrumental in the destruction of the Covenant. But not for many years (and three games) later.
