Original-Gamer.com: "Forget the previous episodes other than for story building; episode 3 brings the action while continuing the story. You've heard of The Expendables? Well Commander Palmer has Sylvester Stallone's number and said that he can retire. If you are looking for some of the most action packed first-person shooter based story gameplay, you have it here. From taking down dozens of Banshees to eliminating brigades of grunts & jackals while taking out covenant terrorists, this is exactly what Spartan Ops was being hyped up to be."
