    The only big gripe I have about MP so far is the way the playlists and map vote are set up. It's annoying that once you vote you can't change it, and the pictures for the maps aren't that well distinguished, so it feels like there's only about four maps with the game.

    Luckily most of the maps are great (apart from Adrift, that can fuck off.)

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Started playing this yesterday and really enjoying the multiplayer so far. I was hoping someone might be able to give a bit of technical advice though.

    One of our regulars is having some strange connection problems with the game. When he comes on he can play the first game without problems, lag or anything else. When itís loading the next game though, he always gets kicked out to the main menu while the next map is loading (when you see the team split after loading without any error messages). If he restarts his xbox and router, he can play the first game again perfectly but the cycle continues. He hasnít got the fastest connection in the world but fast enough to play other games online, including Reach.

    Anyone got any ideas of what might be wrong? Thanks in advance.

    Played for a while yesterday and I'm really enjoying it, little over halfway through the campaign currently. Did a Spartan Op with Lutz last night (all I had time for and didn't get back on later) but I've not tried the war games yet so I'm hanging at SR-6.

    Graphically the game is indeed rather impressive though I do have a minor gripe with the sound. On several points there are radio transmissions coming through and on a number of them, these have simply been drowned out by the combat so you end up not hearing them.

    I got the carry a UNSC weapon through chapter 3 on Heroic difficulty or higher. It was a bit of a chore as you keep having to run back for ammo as there is no UNSC ammo throughout the level so you are down to one gun.

    Just finished SP.

    Thought it was good but just more of the same, felt there was nothing really new.
    Things I loved were the story which was fantastic and was helped by some of the best cut scenes I have ever seen.
    The visuals, whilst not as good as I was expecting from reviews, are some of the best on console.
    The sound was the real winner here, good soundtrack but the the sound effects were near perfect and trumped previous Halo games.

    Overall though felt it was nothing on 3 or Reach, I played most of Reach again a couple of weeks ago as a warm up and the levels are far superior. After completing 4 I went through the levels in the menu and couldn't pick any stand out excellent levels where as Reach and several amazing levels like Tip of the spear.
    The new enemies were mostly dull except maybe the Knights but their fight style was no different to Covenant types except a special move or two.

    The missions mostly were "press these 3 switches" or "destroy these 3 generators". Granted other Halo games have had similar objectives but it was better blended in the the mission and never felt a chore. Levels for sure the biggest let down.

    Overall still a great SP game and probably an 8 from me but as a big Halo fan felt a bit disappointed with it (except the near perfect presentation).Great first attempt from 343 and makes me look forward to 5 and had a satisfying ending.

    @Petrarch By the end of Ops I was SR10, and my only other XP is from the Waypoint Classified stuff.

    MAN, the DF article is a FOUNTAIN of SDF screaming "but Killzone looks better! It does it does it does!"

    Who cares if it does, Halo's far more fun to play.

    TAKE THAT, SDF

    Had another few games of multiplayer earlier and I really can't get my head around it. I feels so wrong and nothing like what a halo multiplayer should be. Game modes feel really limited compared to the bungie offerings of 3 as well.

    Far too many unnecessary layers.
    I think you're probably feeling the result of missing Reach. 4 seems like a progression in that direction in terms of gubbins, and so coming from memories of 3 it'll seem totally different.

    @revan8 jeez, where did you find the time? I've just completed the 2nd mission and I've had it since Monday. By time time I get in from work, get the kids fed washed and up to bed, have tea and tidy up...

    I miss the days where I had the time to rinse games like that :(

    Been working non stop keeping everything tidy around the house etc but as long as everything done then if everyone asleep then get straight on the xbox. Halo like crack until I complete it. Now it is all done I have sold it already so cost me two quid to enjoy that campaign. :) Not interested in MP and though the few missions of spartan ops were dull.

    I can think of a stand out moment and I haven't finished the game yet but that's just me :)

    I've played it for 2 hours now and apparently I've only completed 2 missions. Might be awhile before I finish this.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    @RedSparrows Probably that. It just feels... weird. Still there are still peeps playing 3 if I really miss it that much. Thing is, to me it feels like it's trying to be another game and the other game kinda does a better job at it.

    The game just arrived and I didn't want to spoil the campaign yet so I quickly started a first "Spartan Ops" scenario. Objective: Kill 100 grunts in cramped map, really?! I was expecting a bit more. :D

    Perhaps I'll just play the campaign first...

    Thinking back to the Halo 3 e3 trailer that MS claimed was in game... I think 343 have just about achieved what that looked like with this.

    How is the MP in this? Is it still as you would expect a Halo game to be online?

    In some minor happy news (for me), I have had a message from my wife that this has finally arrived!

    @L_Franko I've only played about 4 hours worth, but I think its fantastic. It's very Halo, with a few tweaks. Much better than Reach and much faster paced due to everybody having sprint and no amour lock stand-offs. It's very very good.

    @L_Franko As I've mentioned, it's nothing like Halo 3 which kinda disappoints me. I've not dabbled with the coop stuff though and that looks cool.

    The visuals on this one are just incredible. Its been a while that a game has made my jaw drop. Just before the chief woke from his sleep I was muttering to myself, these visuals aren't ingame. The lighting etc looked to good. Then I started moving about and was amazed! Well done 343. how the fuck they got this running so smoothly I'll never know!

    There were plenty of stand out cut scenes and flash stuff going on in the back ground but actual gameplay moments?

    Oh who is the voice of Sarah palmer?

    The lighting is indeed good, perhaps a bit overdone, but gorgeous! The first Halo with Xbox1 had really nice lighting for the time.

    @DUFFKING That and the whole of the 7th mission are the highlights for me. Great stuff.

    Played 5 games of Infection and a BTB this morning, and it seems the big change to MP is it's a faster game. No more 10-15 minute matches, even in BTB. I won 2 Infection matches too! In a row! It feels less "bug hunt" and more of a frantic firefight now. Very few quiet periods, less hunting (just take Promethean Vision, you'll find them), and it feels more balanced.

    BTB was on Ragnarok, and it was superb. Frantic, weapon drops, people thrusting and jet packing to safety mid-fight, just a lot better flow than Reach.

    Anyone know of any gold subs going cheap. This should be waiting for me when I get home and I think its time I got my Halo on again.

    Sarah Palmer = Jennifer Hale
    (aka Fem Shep, Bastila from KOTOR etc)
  • Deleted user 8 November 2012 14:19:43
    I really don't like the new grunt voices. Sounds like ET with a helium voice at times.

    Also, Spartan Ops is a bit crap IMHO, It just feels so empty. Glad the other episodes will be free because I definitely wouldn't pay for Spartans Ops.

    Every time her name got mentioned I flashbacked to Twin Peaks, she's the mother of Laura Palmer.
