I have not played this games in months, it is sad I find this game disappointing and now am stuck with Halo Reach until I find a game that can replace it

Was the s*** back in the day especially when supported by Bungie. How I miss the good old days with Halo 3. There have been rumors that it may be coming to PC nothing big but enough to hope for it

I read the comments here sometimes and almost feel as if I'm about to hate halo 4 multiplayer, but then i go play it....

Honestly, some of the matches, specially big team battle, are amazingly intense. When you're in a good match it's such an awesome game. Sure there are some things that can be improved and maybe some things that previous games did better, but it's also the case vice versa.

I think it's all about the nostalgia, the environment you played in, the people you played with, the experiences you went through. I'm sure when halo 5 comes out, many people are gonna look back at halo 4 and say "oh the good old days, gimme back halo 4".

It is more than the nostalgia even though it maybe a little just not much considering I still play Reach. I feel the game has decided to go a whole new direction by copying many things from CoD. My problem is custom loadouts and pretty much killstreaks these things really effect the feel of the game and the way it is played. I honestly cannot even think of how 343i thought that is what fans wanted. How hard would it be too just stick to the formula and just add armor abilities to the map like power ups and weapons? Oh and now they think buying armor is a good idea.

Well you have to look at the pressure they have as a new developer and the fact that they're releasing a brand new trilogy. What would differentiate them if they just kept the game exactly the same with better graphics? People would say they've put no effort in innovating.

I understand killstreaks and loadouts aren't innovate but I kinda like them because they allow you to use the weapons you want a lot more often. I hated having to play 10 matches in Reach just so I can get a chance to pick up the sniper, every match was just a race to the power weapon and then everyone would go their own way. Sometimes I'd have to wait by the sniper for it to respawn a miss all the action.

That being said, racing for power weapons and having only a limited number of them allowed for more tactical team based gameplay but that only worked with patient players and rarely. I'm not saying I don't miss classic halo gameplay, I just think a more dedicated classic playlists would solve that problem.
