    Halo Reach Beta

    Well it's out now. Anyone here have it and playing it? I only played one game of it but I like it. The feel of the guns is good, and the variety in being able to run, fly, go invisible, etc. is cool. The controls are going to take some getting used to though.

    Post up what you guys think.

    I played a few games, then the server went down or something. I like it, but IMO the Halo 3 control system was better for my play style.

    I'm enjoying it. I think the most of the new game types are fun, but the map Powerhouse is awful in all regards. I like Swordbase, and Overlook works well for Generator Defense. Speaking of, I enjoy Invasion and Generator Defense, considering the differences between the Elites and Spartans. Stealing the core or destroying generators is very satisfying. I find objective based games far more fun than Slayer. I have to say, Stockpile is just an awful game type (or maybe it's because it's on Powerhouse). Powerhouse is just very broken, the team on the lower half of the map have a distinct advantage in almost every game type.

    This is all coming from someone who mostly plays games on the PC, by the way.
