I thought the game was brilliant, but yeah... I guess I'm not really expecting good endings from Halo games anyway, but that sort of blew.

Also not fond of the new enemies. Boring bullet sponges and crawlers, bleh. I became genuinely happy at heart whenever I got to fight Covenant.

^ Agreed. The Prometheans blew. If they were going to bring back bullet sponges, I wanted the Flood.

The funniest thing about the Prometheans is I was more concerned with, and had a harder time fighting the jaguar-esque things than I did the full humanoid Knights... I don't think I ever got taken down by a Knight but the jaguar thingamabobs would swarm the crap out of you if you're not careful. It also seemed like they were taken down more easily with the Beam Rifle and the Knights more easily with the Repeater. Don't know if that was just me but that was my take on it.

My biggest beef is just the poor storytelling. I guess I'll just have to start reading the books if I want a good story and leave the tired old shooter aspect out of it. Meh.

5 episodes in, and I'm still not sold on Spartan Ops. Liked Firefight a lot more.

Initial Impressions:

The crawler prometheans piss me off. They're annoying and just a pain in the ***. Get four, five, or more of them on you at one time on Normal or higher and you're pretty much done.

SPARTAN Ops is fun. I'm 4 episodes in, and I like it so far.

The multiplayer is pretty great--I've only really played Slayer/Big Team Slayer and The Flood, but so far so good

Campaign storyline is good so far--I still have one or two missions left in the campaign. I do wish they'd make the campaigns longer--that's been a peeve of mine since Halo 3. Toooooo fast.

I like the new method of buying stuff.

I also like the little perks you can assign in the load-outs. The tactical packages and what-not are a nice touch.

Finally, I love that sprint is no longer an armor ability. You shouldn't have to "upgrade" your highly advanced multi-million/billion dollar armored fighting suit so that you can run. Come on, now.



I'm always looking for MCBers to play some Slayer or SWAT with. Hawkeye7696 is my gamertag.

And I just finished the campaign.


Ho-lee-sheeeit.

That was amazing. Have ya'll seen the legendary ending? It's exactly the same, except for about one second of footage at the end.
