In Response To: Re: Thoughts on Reach (4K words) (General Battuta)


I'm going to change some of Cody's yes's to maybes, and the maybes are added on the basis that you actually understand why you're doing what you're doing.

Winter Contingency: No. This jump starts the whole game.

Sword Base: Maybe. You claim that at least the end of the mission should advance the story. This level's ending introduces Halsey and the Latchkey Data.

Nightfall: Maybe. Technically, you were there to figure out why there was a "Dark Zone" (prevented the UNSC from knowing what was going on within the area) and you discovered there was a Covie army amassing in secret. Possible to skip and just explain in exposition.

Tip of the Spear: Maybe. The end of this mission reinforces that there is now a Covie super carrier at Reach, and most of the local fleet that could fight back is now toast.

Long Night of solace: No. This level was supposed to be the turning point in the battle. Had the Covie fleet not arrived at the end of the level, Reach would have been saved, and the game over. Imagine this level as the false climax.

Exodus: Yes, this level could've been cut, but it at least introduces you to the city that you later fly in.

New Alexandria: I suppose this level could've been cut as well, but I enjoyed the gameplay, and again the ending pushed you toward the Halsey plot.

The package: No. Finally, the plot moves. We learn we need to get Cortana to Keyes on the Autumn..

Pillar of Autumn: No. Itís the climax.
