Halo: Reach UK launch: Jason Bradbury talks to T3

Halo: Reach launches to acclaim and midnight fans

The most eagerly awaited game launch of 2010 saw fans queuing in the early hours of this morning as Bungie’s Halo: Reach title launched at midnight exclusively for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console.

Reach, a prequel to the original Halo title which launched for the first Xbox console back in 2001 sees gamers play as Noble Team a group of Spartan super soldiers set with the task of saving the planet Reach from the Covenant, an invading race of aliens hell-bent on finding Earth.

Speaking at the launch of Halo: Reach last week, fanatical Halo fan, member of the celebrity Elite Spartan Squad and presenter on Channel Five’s flagship programme The Gadget Show, Jason Bradbury said the appeal in the Halo franchise is: “It’s the story, the legend, the narrative which is really compelling. Narratively it’s huge in this game.”

With developers Bungie bowing out of the Halo series with Reach, Bradbury stated: “It’s scary actually; I’m not sure how I feel about it. When any culture group has made something that is epoch making such as Halo it’s always worrying when they hand the gauntlet on to someone else or cease production.”

On the new title Bradbury, who was attending the Halo: Reach launch event as one of the celebrity members of Elite Spartan Squad set to challenge a group of top UK gamers, said: “I played the beta when it was available and that was really good. What really impressed me was the new armour abilities that add a layer of new tactical gameplay.”

Despite losing to on stage celebrity vs. gamers duel the Gadget Show host was pleased to declare: “Reach offers a real rip-roaring multiplayer experience.” Available today Reach is priced £49.99
