Com­man­der Carter – Halo Reach

XBox: The Official Magazine - - REVIEW -

Many, many games try to shoot for that rous­ing, blood­pump­ing at­mos­phere of hero­ism and sac­ri­fice that James Cameron so often cre­ated in his ’80s reper­toire, but no one does it bet­ter than Halo. Com­man­der Carter’s No­ble Team all live up to their name dur­ing Halo Reach’s cam­paign and make the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice for their mis­sion, but it’s Carter’s own death that produces the big­gest lump in the throat.

With a fur­rowed brow and ex­cel­lently coif­feured hair, Carter flies No­ble Six and Emile-A239 to their ob­jec­tive while rid­dled with bul­let wounds, draws the Covenant’s at­ten­tion away from them, then pi­lots his ship into a Be­he­moth. An un­der­played, tear-jerk­ing, mo­ment that al­ways gets us.
