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.

You never played Infection in Reach?

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.

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.

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.
