Based on the novel by Eric Nylund , Halo: The Fall of Reach is an ambitious yet ultimately deeply flawed look into the expanding Halo saga. The novel in which it was based on is an epic militaristic, sci-fi book that obviously gets inspiration from Starship Troopers. Beginning with their conscription as six year olds, the book tells the story of the Spartan-II project, particularly that of John, the Spartan destined to be known as the Master Chief. The Fall of Reach has been one of the most popular stories in the Halo universe, having spawned a spin-off video game, a comic series, and now this very abridged animated feature. Unfortunately, once you get past the concept of six year old soldiers, the whole scenario feels a lot like Universal Soldier or one of the many films like it. While the graphics in the latest game in the Halo series are top notch, sadly the animation is severely lacking in The Fall of Reach.
Sign in. Halsey's recruits have made it this far, and now begin to take their first steps as Spartans. An insurrection must be quelled, and peace assured. How will they cope with their newfound abilities? When Dr. Halsey created the Spartans to save humanity in the shadow of a looming war, she thought she would be saving humanity from themselves.
2. The animation is no Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
Halo: The Fall of Reach is a military science fiction novel by Eric Nylund , set in the Halo universe , and acts as a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved , the first game in the series. The book was released in October and is the first Halo novel. It takes place in the 26th century across several planets and locations. The novel was written in seven weeks, Nylund's shortest writing deadline. The book was well received by critics who thought it added depth to the plot of the game but the large number of characters was highlighted as a shortcoming. Going on to sell over one million copies, the success of The Fall of Reach paved the way for further Xbox game novelizations, including another book in the Halo series. William C.
