The Reach campaign was a big fat let down IMO, boooooooring. Halo 3 was much better.

overshields then health, i know thats not new but holy hell is it horrible in this game. i feel it takes everything but the kitchen sink to kill someone now. as well as how they STILL havent put in the ability to join while gameplays in progress. its a huge let down how the br, or sorry DMR, is. if i wanted to use a pea shooter id have pistol as my main. ive played this game for waaay to long over the past 3 days and its letting me down more and more with the matchmaking they have...i shouldent lose a game and be able to go +24 and my team blows chunks.

Enemy AI > Friendly AI. Lengendary alone... Wish you could respawn near your noble team when you die like in co-op.

Can't choose different firefight playlists in firefight matchmaking?

I NEED team swat playlist.

This times infinity....I'm about 4 levels in and I will see the AI randomly sit there and spaz while the enemy AI is dodging every shot and grenade like it's their job...I also hate how the enemies take an entire clip to kill...

Well this could be considered trivial but I dislike in MP when I choose Invasion matchmaking that most of the games I end up getting is Invasion slayer...which doesn't help me get my achievment. Why does this exist? There's already a Big team slayer, if I wanted to play slayer I'd go player slayer but I want to play invasion to try and get my Skunked achievment. Like I said, trivial but I don't like it.

Also the "If they came to hear me beg" achievement is a pain in the ass, I must've tried like 300 times already

Multi Team having 6 teams was a huge mistake. It's really obvious most the maps can't handle spawning six separate teams when you end up spawning behind enemies more times than not.

Normal 2v2v2v2 was fine, and I think a 3v3v3v3 would be awesome, too.

Definetly not enough multiplayer playlists. It just seems like they could have done alot more. Also half of the maps are just made from forge world which shows they just couldnt come up with ideas or were too lazy ect.

Look this troll is multiplying in multiple threads....what's the matter chief did you FINALLY get more than 5 kills and get booted because you kept throwing 40 grenades down a corridor filled with your team and theirs? Too bad!

Oh man is the friendly AI ever retarded. When they are using the turret in the back of your warthog for whatever reason they won't shoot at anything that's further than maybe 30 feet away even though that's still within range of the weapon. If you get out of the drivers seat and kick them out of the turret to do some work the idiots will just jump into the drivers seat and put you on a suicide mission straight into enemy territory lol. It's pretty frustrating when you're trying to play it safe on legendary and you have to deal with their stupidity.

And new maps on a single massive one detract from the fact that they are still good maps? Who cares if they're made in Forge World, non of them are really similar?

Granted there are only a handful of playlists at the moment but it's also only a few days after launch. Give it time.


The only thing I could bitch about this game would be the character development. The story was good, but for a game that depends a lot on the characters, I feel it could have been stronger.

seriously why does the friendly AI suck sooooo bad? i hand over a shotty to an AI whos with me and he goes into a room first and im like yes! cus he has a shotty and he can do some work with it...then he just goes in there and stands there doesnt shoot a single shot and the enemy completely ignores him and waits for me to come in. also why does it take two entire clips to kill single grunt? are they imune to bodyshots and can only be killed by headshots or something? idk big let down if i had to rate it in stars. id give it a 3 outta 5


the game makes me feel like this when i run outta ammo because it takes 4 sniper rounds in the head to kill a guy
and like this that i even bought the game.

oh and i forgot a few things...
the assassination thing is pretty cool but after a while it gets old
id rather just hit them in the back and keep going, also sometimes
when i unwantingly do it in a firefight the other enemys just shoot me off his back and i die and dont even get the kill.
and why are the wraiths so damn accurate? they will be across the map soo far away and ill just get hit by this giant blue thing thats comming out of the sky before i even knew there was a wraith on the map.
and some of the abiltys dont work so well like the armor lock thats just postponing death if you use it the enemy just steps back to a good distance and when your armor lock is out they just kill you, its only good for not being splattered. and the active camo doesnt work against wraiths i used the camo and tryed to walk up behind it but instead it just keeps inching away from me as fast as i walk.

If they came to hear me beg

I kid you not, I've jumped off that cliff more than 500 times today and successfully assassinated the Elite. No unlock. And yes, I've tried doing it without sprint.

I dont like the close combat in this game. Halo 3 you can shoot a couple shots with the BR and hit the guy and he dies. I shoot 3 rounds DMR in the face, hit the guy and now I have to shoot him in the face one more time. Its annoying since every little kid uses that piece of junk AR.

Also on small maps. I always die by a guy just sprinting at me and hitting me twice before i can do anything. I prefer Halo 3 i guess haha

Assassinations are awesome, HOWEVER. I was playing a FFA game. I was tied 24 to 24 and for my final kill went to assassinate someone and got killed halfway though the animation. I didnt get the kill and I ended up losing the match. WTF BUNGIE!

Grrrrr stupid elites in campaign on legendary take more than 2 sniper rounds to the face and if the kick you once you die, yet u have to hit em 3 times for em to die. I even used an energy sword to try and assassinate an elite but he turned around and kicked me. I love this game but come on do they have to make the AI so hard to kill. ps. your AI in this game seem to have gotten worse as i have been driven of the edge of a cliff or into a rock by kat to many times to count.

I honestly don't really have any complaints about the game.

A few things tho:

-NEVER let Kat drive.
-On Legendary final mission when you reach the ship graveyard 2 things happen:
  1. Emile becomes 10,000x stupider
  2. Running for your life becomes the best tactic.
-Legendary is Bungie's sick joke.
-Ally AI is random every time you play anyone who has claimed Legendary is easy has gotten intelligent AI.
-Lastly: ALWAYS KILL THE ENGINEERS!
The enemies shields are annoying enough, they don't need more >_>

I see no need to add more.... Bungie could have at least made Emile stop constantly trying to melee Hunters...

You would think he would learn after the 5th time he went flying off the edge of the map.

I'd say Jorge was the only one who really got some development as a bit of a gentle giant type. Also when he turned the truck into a minigun platform was also pretty cool.

I have a few gripes.

-Campaign. It's too short as a single player campaign, as Bungie's 'swan song' to Halo it's WAYYY too short, but on the other hand it's almost perfect for co-op.
-Not enough time for character development, for a game thats got an ensemble cast the story was too short to develop those characters. I didn't really get 'connected' with any of the characters.
-AI, especially friendly AI. Emile is sniping with his shotgun, Jun is no-scoping with his sniper, and Kat is the worst driver in history....WTF is going on.
-More than 1/3 of the MP maps are Forge World maps. I feel like Bungie went the easy way and just remade Halo 2 maps in Forge World instead of doing what they did with Ivory Tower/Reflection, which is a beautiful map.
-SWAT needs to be it's own playlist. I love swat but sometimes it gets picked too much.
