You realize that this is the second half of season 1, right? The one advertised, and part of initial $60-100 to purchase the game? This is not a "new free" one. Season 2 will most likely cost money.
I would not buy this if it cost money, considering the only good part is the cut scene. Are you really that happy with repetitive, copy and paste gameplay vs AI? If you honestly think Spartan Ops is something 343 should hang its hat on, you have low standards. One of the episodes is literally walking around a multiplayer map, again. Am I missing what is so great? I feel like normal firefight would be more fun, with bonus rounds, scoring, etc.
Spartan Ops could be sold as a separate game? Its comparable to a 2nd campaign?
Whats the street corner where you buy your crack?
First of all, Spartan Ops is a poor attempt at bringing something new to the game. Replaying the same maps you played in the campaign, with new voice-overs for the "mission" that you're on. When in reality, it isn't a mission at all, its just you shooting everything that spawns. Oh, and each mission can be completed, solo, in about 15 minutes. Yeah, if I bought a game like that, it would be returned the next day.
Second, and I kind of mentioned it in my first complaint, but Spartan Ops is nowhere near a 2nd campaign.
I like Halo 4 a lot. But I really wish they would have kept Firefight instead of Spartan Ops.
Everyone said it a was a miracle when Jesus hit that grand slam in the bottom of the 9th. I just thought it was a lucky shot.
