Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more excited for Halo Reach, they have to announce that there’s a level that features starfighter combat. Holy flaming awesome balls. Having been obsessed with space combat since first seeing Star Wars, I’ve always had a nerd on for games featuring it. Halo has always held some promise for space based vehicular combat, but with the focus being on person to person shooting there was never any serious hope for one of my favorite game types. Now that’s changed with at least one level of Halo Reach doing just that.
So far it’s confined to one level, but if Microsoft is the money grubbing company I know it is, they should consider doing a spin-off space fighting game. Man, it would rock to fly in between the Covenant and USMC ships as they slugged it out. It would rock my face clean off.
