the removal of fire fight was a huge knock IMO. I like modes like that, and i like spec ops better than spartan ops. and the campaign is lack luster. the MP is where the game shines though. --- See The Game Collection http://www.gamespot.com/users/nights_team2k7/games_table?mode=own
People like Spartan Ops? Bland story where you don't feel like you've done anything useful, simply awful dialogue (both on the part of the writer and the uninspired voice actors), recycled maps, no scoring (in a Firefight replacement), and requires constant connection to Live needlessly (the info is on disc and requires an Internet connection simply to unlock).
It's horrible on a technical implementation, it's boring to play, and even worse to listen to. (Palmer's dialogue is just cringe-worthy.)
