The game is awesome! Single player although short was very enjoyable and well played out.
If Firefight had matchmaking, I'd be playing that to this day

The game was too easy and too quick IMO. Not nearly as fun as Halo 3. Coastal Highway was a 'memorable pain in the a$$' though.

From what I've read is that the reason why there's no Matchmaking is because the code for Firefight was the same as Halo 3's co-op which doesn't support it, blah blah blah. Not to mention the people who do the codes are more focused on Halo: Reach (for that I don't blame them, really).

But I guess since this is a Bitching thread I need to find something to Bitch about...hmm...can't think of anything at the moment.

I had no gripes about the campaign until playing Legendary. While it is about half the difficulty of Halo 3's, I was instantly longing for a fight against dozens of Flood next to the Arbiter when my gunner doesn't shoot at anything until it's 10 feet away. (which obviously is just the final level)

I wish Firefight mode was more like Horde in Gears 2 in the way it saves your progress.

I got stuck on the dutch side mission right before you go into the elevator when you're fighting the crap load of brutes. You know what I ended up doing? Since I didn't really bring any good weapons in with me, I didn't think to do such a thing.. haha. I restarted the mission and tried again. After blowing the toll bridge I ran up the hill and tore off as many gun turrets as I could find and stacked them at the future check point so I could stack them in the middle of the room for use against the armored brutes. I had 5 of them with 200 rounds a piece and then Mitch with the sniper rifle Needless to say that made it a lot easier to finish that flash back mission.

I don't understand why it was so dang hard though.

lost platoon, 4 players, heroic difficulty. its obvious these add up to make an exciting endure run. we had 15 lives at the start of the 3 round of the 4th set and somehow, we lost our spartan laser that had 3 shots left somewhere around the 4th wave. So on the last round with no lives left, it was one of us and one chieftain with a fuel rod. needless to say since this is the bitching forum, we lost against the VERY LAST ENEMY of endure

I thought the game was fantastic except for the last driving level. Playing that solo on legendary was a massive PITA. You couldn't shoot, all you could do was drive that dickhead around and get killed lol. The checkpoints did not work in my favour either ever. Probably died 100 times until I got to the tank part. It made that whole level excessively stupidly hard because you weren't in control! I breezed through the rest of the game on legendary though.

All in all I thought the graphics and music were beautiful and the storyline was interesting. Just a shame the game didn't end on a high note, like all other halo games.

Cant wait for Reach

endure sucks, i finally got it but after a few controllers thrown and a lot of cussing. it wasent even very hard to get through, it was just that we would get an hour or 2 through and someones connection would lag and we would all be kicked off. so really it all comes down to luck and you hope you dont lag

well i thought the story was average, too broken up, i like a little continuity, but it was ok. my main gripe, as with many others, is that fuck up that is firefight

if that twat rips me off again i wont bother with it, 3 times to get crater 200k, chasm ten was the last one to rip me off, i'm pretty shit at the game anyway so it takes a few attempts, i don't need it to forget the score on top of my lacking skills

Call me 'Johnny Come Lately' but i've just got this game after waiting patiently for a cheap preowned copy. I can't help but be struck by how boring it is. It's just the gameplay and the horrible visuals (looking like they came form the original xbox).

Also, if someone picked this game up having not really played Halo much (what are the chances) they would wonder what the hell is going on.

The premise of the story is really strong but it seems to have been delivered quite badly. A wasted opportunity. Maybe this has been done before too often and better (trekking through invaded towns and cities in Half-Life was sublime). Maybe firefight redeems it.

We'll see

I traded in two copies of Perfect dark zero and one copy of battlefield two to get it.
Why? To get the halo 3 map packs!

Mythic on the fourth set. Way to kick a team while they're down.

I used to like it... Until trying to get the endure achievement and found the game would always kick the party due to horrible lag during or around the 3rd/4th set. Now its just become like a chore I dont really want to do but know I have to.

I like the game alot. The only thing I did have an issue with was that the first day I got it, I played for about 4 hours and beat 4 campaign missions, then turned off the xbox. apparently if you dont save when you exit...NONE of your progress is saved. My own stupid mistake I know, but still wasnt cool to have to go back and play all of it over again.

Voice cast (Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Tricia Helfer)= awesome. Audiophile achievement, not. This is the first game where I actually dreaded having to listen to the logs after I collected them.

I personally thought...

The music in the single player campaign while you were stalking the empty streets of Mombasa as The Rookie was really, really effective in captivating the sadness and emptiness of the city now that it had been evacuated and practically destroyed.
Mass Effect: Andromeda, will it hold the line?

Like many have said, doing Endure can be a bitch. Me and my team have made it far on all our tries and then someone lags out. So frustrating.

Last time we tried we went as far as 4/1/4 with 1:43 of time and 15 lives and got disconnected.

Luckily I never had issues with lag even on my shit wireless internet service. lol, me, my cousin, my bro, and one of my cousins friends over xbox live did the firefight vidmaster in like an hour cause I guess we were that good. And right after we got the achievement it started lagging! We were actually gonna keep playing cause we still had over 20 lives after the 4th set or whatever it was to get achievement!
