i picked out Star Wars Obi Wan and Halo CE in December of 2001. i do not regret either of those purchases hahaha
glad to see people still picking up this game and getting involved with the story and games. if you really get into the lore of Halo, you must begin reading the books, all are must reads.
if anything, reading the books before hand is always a good start, then playing the game just puts you in their "boots" hahaha
'Halo: The Fall of Reach' is set entirely before Halo CE and details the Spartan II training, the destruction of Reach referred to in the Halo CE manual and ends with the beginning of Halo CE.
i believe 'fall of Reach' is where Blue team had the mission to kidnap/assassinate a Prophet?
And yes, you are correct. That was their original mission, which was made irrelevant once the Covenant began their attack on Reach.
right now i am in the middle of the Forerunner series. great stories for sure.
