For the halo veterans, how do you honestly feel about halo 4?

I'm talking about core gameplay mechanics.

Well, I think that's where you went wrong, because (at least initially) I wasn't. I was saying that they took a lot of the cosmetic features of CoD and attempted to incorporate them into Halo, and that to consider that decision "bold", is frankly ridiculous. I wasn't saying the games PLAY the same, I was saying that they share a lot of features, and that "most" of those features are brand new to Halo.

It wouldn't be hard to make the argument that core gameplay mechanics have been made much more similar to CoD, but that's not what I was setting out to do.

Reach had more satisfying multiplayer in my opinion. From weapons, to no instant spawning, maps design etc

My ranking as of now for best MP, disregarding CE as I never really played it enough online, would be as following:

Halo 2 > Reach > Halo 3 > Halo 4

Halo 4 is great so far. It's so much better than Reach in pretty much every way. It's too soon for me to properly rank it among the other main Halo games, but I do know that I like it 10x better than Reach. If you asked this question on Halo Waypoint, I think you'd get a very different response. Have you gone on the Halo 4 forums on Waypoint? All it is is nonstop whining about pretty much everything.

I thought the story was the best yet, really liked how they're fleshing out Cortana and MC's characters / relationships a bit more, and like how Spartan Ops is like a mini-campaign.

Things I don't dig - lack of dual wielding, lack of SMGs (I really liked those in the older ones,) lack of my personal Spartan in the Spartan Ops cutscenes. Still, nothing that's going to break the game or anything if they don't throw them back in.

Didn't weigh in on deathmatch / PvP, because I don't dig it too much.

This game is miles ahead of blops II if that counts for anything.

I am making a video comparison of each game of what they did right and wrong (in my eyes).

How do I honestly feel? I think the campaign is the best, and it also reminds me the most of CE, which is a good thing. The multiplayer, after Halo 2, is easily my favorite. My only three big gripes are...

-The maps are mediocre at best, and limited.
-Spartan Ops, while fun, is not a true replacement for firefight. I'd really like to see it added at some point.
-Not a huge fan on 343 cutting down the usable weapons / vehicles.
