heh heh so they took a leaf out of Gears' book and now we can play as the flood in MP...nice. and i still want to watch all those Forward Until Dawn movies before the game comes out...i feel this will erase the disappointment Reach was, a proper swan song for the 360 in terms of Halo.

I REALLY enjoyed reaches multiplayer, it was the single player campaign that didn't have.... idk, it just lacked something. Too much running from waypoint to waypoint and not enough killing and story involved slaughter for me I guess.

The online MP was reminiscent of Halo 2 which I LOVED. I hated H3's MP, it seemed too slow and laggy like a tom clancy game.

I hope they keep a very similar fast reacting online MP engine. Otherwise I'll be quite un-happy.

Very much loving the art direction and graphics in this game. I never could see why people ever said Halo 3 had good graphics, and I never rated Bungie that highly in that department.

First time I saw the footage for this game I also got Metroid Prime vibe from it's art direction, and it turns out I wasn't crazy - some of designers from Retro Studios now work at 343i, which is a very, very good thing. (Though I hope Retro found some good people to make up for them :p)

I was just watching some of the IGN videos, I cannot wait for this game. I am not a huge Halo fan, truthfully I only enjoyed the original. I know multiplayer wise 2 and 3 might be 'loved' but we all agree Reach left wanting but 343i is really looking like they're pouring love into every aspect of the game. I am so very thrilled for this. Might just wait on AC3 knowing a week later this comes out, and get AC3 at a discount.

Can someone explain why the flood look like they have some sort tech skin in addition to their flesh?

from my understanding they are infected spartan IV's without the armour taken from the infection game type for multiplayer.

Yep, but they're infected Spartan-IVs.

You never played Infection in Reach?

I have the exact same impression. I didn't like Reach's single player that much but I really enjoyed its multiplayer over Halo3. My only regret is the stupid Forge World thing that bungie did. The remakes were lazy forged maps which got boring real fast.

Honestly I only care about the single player and probably some spartan ops since they're also tied to a story. I don't really do the whole MP frag fest thing.

True about the forge maps. If anything they should have brought back all the H2 maps, those were a hit on H3 for a reason. They were awesome in design and very team-neutral.

The last few updates to multiplayer makes me want to quit reach. Hell I did for almost 3 months because they removed all the 'power armor mods' that kids kept crying about on the forums. -_- if you're getting owned, get better at the game or stop playing I say.

The same thing happened for Halo 3. Avalanche was released as a vehicular combat focused map, and by the end of its first 3 months out they removed everything but Warthogs and Ghosts from the map and only specific game types even saw a Wraith on the map. Reach's maps were sort of meh all around. There was one or two pretty good maps but almost all of them were lackluster.

True, I miss 'the pit' that was built with what looked like shipping containers.

I said I wasn't going to do it. I actually, swore up and down once I heard Jetpacks were in this game I wasn't going to do it. I ended up pre-ordering the game and got a $20 giftcard through Microsoft Store's website. If the Limited Edition shows up somehow, I'll end up getting that as well. If it doesn't, oh well. :/

I have no faith in its multiplayer, I just want to see how they ruin the single player story.

I have no faith in this game at all, actually. If it's anything better than Reach...than I will say this was a good purchase. I mainly got this to give me something to do while I wait for GoW:J to come out.

Although, like you said...I do want to see where the story goes from here. I guess, I should give Halo 2 and Halo 3 a play through.
