I didn't hate it I just can't really get into RTS games because of my play-style that is incredibly difficult to shake off. I liked the story, characters, & music in it. The music, considering it wasn't a HALO OST made by Marty O'Donnell, was pretty damn good, imo. I think my favorite track from it is "Insignificantia (All Sloppy/No Joe)."

The only reason I was disappointed was because a lot of cool content for bases and units was cut out such as usable Shortswords and Falcons (actual fighters more similar to the Broadsword in Halo 4 rather than the troop transports in Reach) and docked at an airpad, Covenant Air Artillery, and the Gorgon.
Also bases didn't seem to be limited by the base construction areas.
