Most of the novel adaptations for video games which I've read have been absolutely abysmal, with others still being somewhat entertaining but still unenjoyable to some extent. However, I thoroughly enjoyed Nylund's spin on the Halo series in "The Fall of Reach" because he seemingly brought the characters to life, expanded on their personalities, and even provided a background which correlates well with the events of the game series. What seemed most effective in fleshing the characters out was most likely Nylund's use of his personal experience as a military veteran in order to convey a realistic portrayal of the emotions, strategy, and general responses of humanity during their conflict with and utter defeat at the advanced technology of the Covenant army's armada.
