Halo Reach Legendary Edition Lives Up To Its Label

Halo Reach is Bungie's last hurrah in the Halo universe, and they aren't saying goodbye without a lovely Limited Edition and one final, ultra-expensive Legendary Edition.

First we have the Halo Reach Limited Edition, priced at $79.99. $20 over the standard price scores fans a recovered ONI "black box" holding the game disc, an exclusive set of Elite armor for multiplayer, and an artifact bag containing Dr. Halsey's personal journal and various documents and effects that explore the history of the Halo universe.

With a price of $149.99, the Halo Reach Legendary Edition is one of the pricier collector's editions we've seen, but it certainly isn't without reason. There's not mini-plastic cat helmet inside this box. Instead, Bungie commissioned McFarlane Toys to create a 10 inch tall, 10 pound diorama statue featuring the members of Noble Team, the stars of the game.

As if that weren't enough, the Legendary Edition also comes with a flaming Spartan helmet for multiplayer, as well as all of the contents of the Limited Edition, all packed inside a striking UNSC-themed custom box.

If that's not a fine sendoff for Bungie's final game in the Halo series, I don't know what is. I plan on preordering the standard edition, and then begging my GameStop manager to put aside one of the Legendary Editions for me at the last minute, when my resolve falters.

I hope they let us toggle the flaming helmet graphics on and off after we Legendary-editioners have entered our codes. It could get a little annoying if we end up in a sniper's crosshairs more often than our flame-free brethren.
