I just beat the campaign last night on Heroic and all I can say is...wow. What an absolutely incredible game that completely exceeded all of my expectations. I'm usually not one to dwell on the story in a video game but the whole thing was done so incredibly well. I also played through the first chapter of Spartan Ops on Heroic. The fact that this mode has it's own CGI cutscenes for each chapter and has it's own separate story further illustrates the devotion to the franchise by Microsoft and 343. The whole idea behind Spartan Ops is novel and fresh I would love to see them expand this more beyond what is already planned. I have to keep on going through AC3 because I have to get it back to Gamefly in time for some other games I want to play coming out but it's going to be extremely difficult to not keep on playing this in the meantime.

Got through level 7 of the campaign last night, what a game. I was so wrong yesterday, almost as soon as I turned the game on last night the story picked up considerably. I don't love the "Run here, press button, run here, press button" routine that they seem to rely on, since it feels a little bit filler-ish (particularly on the gondola segment), but other than that this is a hell of a game. This is the first Halo I've played that I would say deserves GotY nods.

I guess these first 50 episodes are part of the first season, and they're free. I believe they stated they'll release a second season, or at least alluded to it, but it will be a paid DLC. Personally? I'd happily pay for more of these. They are fun, good for short bursts of gameplay, and still help you level up in the MP with the weekly challenges and commendations.

Plus, those CGI's. Dang.

I still haven't touched spartan ops....how are they?

Fun, although pretty difficult by yourself. It's not like it really matters though since you get unlimited respawns.

Best Halo. I didn't think any Halo would ever top Combat Evolved for me. Halo's in good hands at 343i. Best campaign mode and story to date, very fun multiplayer.

i enjoy the Ops mode. the unlimited lives plus co-op makes it a fun and silly race to kill enemies on legendary.
it reminds me of an old arcade game (with neverending continues).

i have only leveled up using the Spartan Ops mode. ill not play the multiplayer.

hey K Kuz thanks for the info!

I havent ventured far from the team slayer/big team slayer. im guessing the CTF is good?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 14, 2012 10:18:12 AM PST
I've only played a couple of games of flag.....most people in that playlist are groups of "teams" that for the most part know what they are doing...in the end....the team I was on got beat pretty quickly.

I love BTB.....the maps are phenomenal.....I hope they eventually include Big Team objective.....CTF on Valhalla was always a blast on Halo 3....

i enjoyed it. but like Truth just said, their might be matches where you get dominated and thats when i get the sniper rifle and stay to the side.

Bulbachutwo says:
CTF is good, but as been stated twice already, you'll probably end up playing against actual TEAMS so you'll get wiped clean if you can't work together with your random group. It's best to go in with a team.

My fav. playlists are BTB and Dominion. Seriously, Dominion is so much fun. I really enjoy the base fortification system they have. I just wish people would understand that in order to win, you need to capture the bases, as a group, and not from kills. That's why I usually stick with people I know when it comes to those games.

No problem waxc3!

The campaign was good but considering the short length of it, they could've expanded it a good amount.

who is AEK says:
Before server update: HOLY **** I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!
After server update: WHAT THE **** IS THIS ****?!!! Why is this so laggy?!! WHY in God's name did my headshot register as a shoulder shot?!!!!!

:'( I really hope they fix this game pretty soon.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 15, 2012 4:44:48 AM PST
Haven't experienced this issue....when did the update go through.

As for playlists....

BTB is a lot of fun...again I really hope the start including a playlist with BT objective...

Swat is fun...

Dominion is great...

JO MOMMA says:
ya i didnt know of a server update. i have only experienced 3 laggy games but were fixed once some people left the match so im guessing the host had a terrible connection.

IPhantom says:
I agree. The core is there for this to be a great mp for years to come, but they have got to work some kinks out. Especially the lag compensation issue. I have full confidence that they'll get figured out in the coming weeks, but as of now, if I'm in a game and notice on the kill cam that the guy didn't even shoot me once, I just back out and find a new game.

Did they add swat back finally?

swat is in 4 yes

It was there last night...

i noticed it there a couple of night ago.

AndrewA says:
Damn I better get on that then. Swat was my favorite mode in reach because it was much easier to still have a good match when the inevitable one person quits the match early for no reason.

Posted on Nov 15, 2012 8:00:20 AM PST
Swat is always fun...once I learn how to get around the maps better I'll begin to play it more...

Posted on Nov 15, 2012 8:04:42 AM PST
Can't wait to get this again tomorrow so that I can finally play!!

I want double team and 1 flag CTF to be added and I'll be set.

Not that I hate 2 flag....I've just always liked 1 flag better, especially on Halo 3.
