I love halo, Not so much the campaign. The first one had a simple story and it was just awesome being Master Chief the badass. My gripe is these games suddenly have someone who has nothing to do with the game write a book, and from there the whole story gets changed. What we have now is something the creators didn't even write and a strange feeling of no attachment to the original. A mismatch of ideas that should have never been in the campaign. The games now cater for the folks that read the "books" and I didn't have the slightest clue what was going on in Halo 4 and that English accent bad guy feels completely out of place.

watch the terminal vides and you'll understand. But i get what you mean, I already knew who he was but for those that didn't there should've been a more fleshed out scene explaining it.

But i think it was their intention. In halo 1 we didn't know wth the backstory was or why the covenant were so bent on activating halo. It followed masterchief throughout the campaign and only gave clues to the overall story. In halo 2 they really showed the prophets and the gravemind, and the story got more complex.

I think they're taking the same approach, halo 4 was primarily about masterchief and cortana and requiem. Even the UNSC weren't given much attention. Halo 5 is where the story will expand i feel.

Actually i think i remember seeing backstory in CE's game manual...as well as fall of reach novel being released very close (not sure if before or after) to CE's release

Well exactly, instead of in manuals the backstory is now in terminal videos, and they're pretty well made for just extra info.

And similarly, the forerunner novels "Cryptum" and "Primoridum" already came out before halo 4, they explain Forerunners and Diadact's story. And the third book is coming out next month.
