If you've had any doubts about that Halo Reach pre-order, you can rest easy. The foreign reviews went live over the weekend and the outlook is positive. Of the 29 reviews on Metacritic.com, Bungie's final title in the Halo franchise has scored a minimum of 80 and the top ten have given it a perfect 100 (or equivalent).
According to Destructoid (Score 10/10) "Halo: Reach is everything a Halo fan has ever dreamed for. All that was lacking from previous Halo games is here and then some. This is Bungie's love letter to their fans and they've definitely gone out with a bang."
A little further down the page Giant Bomb (Score 4/5) provided their thoughts, "It's a Halo game through and through, with the same style and pacing that you've come to expect, but with a new cast of characters that are worth paying attention to and a multiplayer mode that has more variety than it's ever had before. It's not going to change your mind about Halo, but this special delivery for fans of the franchise is a great send-off as Bungie ends its involvement with the franchise to go work on something new."
As of September 13th, the Metacritic score is 94.
