Maybe the nostalgia factor not being there is subjective but gameplay wise it would be a brand new game pretty much.
Pretty much every AAA game series gets worse as it goes along and Halo is no exception.
See I disagree. Black Ops 2 was the most successful CoD to date. BioShock Infinite is amazing. Gears of War and God of War 3 were both arguably the best games in their series. The Mario and Zelda games are still great games to play. Even Pokemon is still as successful as ever.
I feel like 343 is just a company full of staff captains who got shoved a bunch of money by MS and were told to make the game as mass-appealing as possible, and they failed at even doing that.
