I just got mine in. I normally just play the crap out of NHL 13 but you know Halo is good when it has me jonesing to play it instead. Just wish that second disc didn't eat up so much of my little hard drive.

I don't get why they didn't just keep MP to the second disk. You're already including it, don't make me install it.

And no firefight? Really? The second disk is goofy in my opinion. Not needed at all...

But besides that, i really like the game. I liked the reach campaign better, but MP its better on this.

I'm digging it! Every bit as good as the Bungie titles were. The graphics are a significant step up, and the sound is AMAZING!

As a fan of the Halo fiction (books, etc) I'm really enjoying the story, and the Spartan Ops episodes are GREAT! Those other dev houses who CHARGE for day 1 DLC could take a lesson from 343 !!

I DID think the second disk was a little odd though....I did the install and it definitely wasn't a full disk's worth of material. Almost like it was more like a "key" than actual content?? Eh, whatever.

I do miss FireFight though....pulled out Reach the other night just because Gruntageddon is a favorite for me and my kid.

I think all the weapons and vehicles sound kinda odd, except the DMR and Sniper Rifle. They dont sound...real enough. The game is still awesome though

I had the opposite reaction-this is the first Halo game where I've thought that the guns and engines sounded like...well, guns and engines. The Warthog sounds like a trophy truck now, and I like it.

Anybody finding the campaign way harder this time, though? I'm not great at console FPSes, but normally I can breeze through a Halo campaign on Normal pretty easily. Now, though, it's kicking my ***.

The gun sounds absolutely amazing. The AR in particular, sounds like a beefy bullethose of death.

Played the multiplayer for the first time today. The sniper rifle is just ridiculous IMO (when I'm the one that has it anyway).
