"Yeah, I'm playing the Beta right now, too!"
It is a very anticipated game. Many people believe that the game will be the highest grossing of 2010.
The game takes place soon before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. In this game, you don't play as Master Chief but a new unnamed person identified by the callsign Noble Six.
The game is based on the book Halo: The Fall of Reach and obviously it will take place on the planet Reach, as Spartans defend the planet from the Covenant.
A multiplayer beta of the game will be released in May 3rd 2010 and it will contain alot of new modes like Invasion, headhunt and spartans vs elites.
2) A one in a million game that deserves to be overrated.

They broke the original Halo gameplay so badly that the golden triangle (guns, grenades, melee) turned into a square made out of moldy turds (Armor abilities, guns, grenade spam, sprint melee).
They removed many features that made what Halo was and removed dual wielding, and the most iconic weapon of Halo: The SMG. The Battle Rifle was also removed and replaced with a new, more overpowered weapon.
Bungie also brought back the health system which made sense, but made grenades way more powerful, without changing them.
The game was overall terrible and only ran for a few weeks off of hype. The game couldn't even hold #1 game on Xbox LIVE for more than a few weeks. Every other Halo game accomplished this for years, and even when they were not #1, they were still pretty high up.
There is a conspiracy where Bungie intentionally made Halo: Reach a bad game because they didn't want the fans to miss them and so 343 Industries could have an easy time winning over the fanbase and selling Halo games by turning Reach into something playable and remaking the first Halo game without changing a thing.
