All I know is that I haven't been this excited for Halo since before Halo 3 came out. I'm really loving that 343 has shown what Halo should look and play like in 2015. It shows evolution to the existing formula but stays true to the roots. In my opinion this is the direction it should take and that 343 is doing a stellar job.

I don't mind sprint, in fact I welcome it. Playing the old Halo's just felt slow and sluggish. I mean in all honesty why wouldn't a marine know how to sprint?

Probably because he's weighed down by armour that weighs as much as a tank. Or Gabe Newell.

The heavy armor hasn't stopped him from being able to jump 8ft into the air like it's nothing, or flip armored jeeps like tonka toys. There's really no reason he shouldn't be able to Sprint. As long as it and the other Spartan abilities are balanced well all will be fine..

Yeah no I agree with the sprint mechanic. I was just making a joke...a very bad one at that.

I'll grab my coat...

All I have to say is that this looks glorious. The Halo 2 diehards probably aren't going to like it but who cares.

Glorious! I cannot wait. Day One.

Well pros like Snip3down, Tsquared, Bravo, and Ghostayame all said that it feels great and plays at times even more competitively than Halo 3 so I don't think the old timers (myself included) will knock it. It takes the best elements from past Halo's and combines them into Halo 5. I'm very confident that this will be the next Halo that in 5 years people will say, "Remember the Halo 5 days?"

It looks like halo to me. It looks like alot of fun, I like the new sound fx.
