I thought it was ok at first but I don't like it for a number of reasons -No weapons on map -Awful looking armor (Really minor at the end of the day) -Having to level up and unlock AA's and specializations etc (This is the biggest problem IMO) -The scoring system in infinity slayer -Those uesless forerunner grenades -Removal of any sort of bubble/drop shield
I do like a few things but they are really minor in comparison to the above -Promethian vision -Sprint as a standard ability -The hardlight shield replacing armor lock -The new guns are all really good -The upgrades to grifball and oddball
I really only like Grifball. The throwing mechanic made the game a lot more strategical. H3 and Reach beta were a lot better gun play wise. I had fun on Reach for a few months but not nearly as much as I did on 3.
The "faults" you listed are not faults. They're personal dislikes.
An actual fault of the game would be like the fact the file share system didn't work at launch, but now that 343 has gotten their feet wet, this game is really starting to kick ass. With Spartan Ops turning out to be awesome, and good playlists, this is a very solid Halo entry.
Royale with Cheese. What do they call a Big Mac? Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big Mac.
