"First off, I am disappointed having no levels like the previous games. While you could argue that Arena provides rankings and divisions, it is tough to say if this compares to levels. Arena rates you during a season. You must play a certain amount of matches throughout the season to get put into a division. These divisions may serve as good bragging rights and force awesome competition in each game played, but I just don’t see it comparing to levels. I could be wrong though, and it is still too early to tell. Currently it does not sit well with me. While earning the next level provoked a lot of cheating once you hit a certain level it ensured a competitive nature in each game which is something I love about Halo."

there are still levels/ranks.

edit: and if you try Big Team Battle, the maps are a lot better. A lot of the team slayer and team arena makes do blow, but the big team battles feel very much like what halo should be.

edit 2: and I think Bungie has limited playlists right now on purpose. They are supposed to be adding more playlist (including campaign matchmaking) in the next couple weeks. And I think I heard there was a free map pack being released in november or some wheres in there.

edit 3: you also don't mention that the friendly AI is absolutely retarded on heroic/legendary.

Again a very high-school level review, absolutely no adherence to formal styles, many times adding random adjectives where they don't belong, poor grammar.

Give the review a miss imo.

2.5/10

I did say there are arena ranks, but they do not have levels anymore.

1. Possibly

2. That would be good if they added more maps for free

3. I think the AI is pretty challenging on legendary, I dunno about you..

Thanks. Remember I am not a professional reviews though, nor can I write extremely well.

It depends on what you mean. They still have the ranking system and all that jazz (with the top ones not yet released), and they still rank you individually on skill level for each gametype.

So there's no more relatively trivial number on which they base your skill for you to tell your friends, but there's a lot more numbers that determine your actual skill in the game.

Oh I see what you mean. Yeah, everytime I rush into battle with some troopers they die instantly. Kinda hilarious actually.

yea... it kinda ruined the feel when ur running through an area with 10 other guys and the music picks up like ur all badass and then they all insta die. I wouldn't care if they just hid behind stuff, or stood in the back and watched me kill everything. It's just like "you should not run at the brute with the gravity hammer"

Man, even on normal those bitches couldn't stay alive.

And the ones that can't die will just sit there and get their ass beat by hunters and I stand back and lol.
That and I've learned to bait those people into distracting the baddies on the big guns so I can kill them.



p.s. I also noticed the horrible voice acting. "Help. We're under attack by the covenant." "Oh really? You sound quite fine to me."
