I always that the conventant was weak in comparison to the Locust, Chimera, and Helghast.

They really don't seem ruthless in a epic level. I understand that bombard and do that crap, but in comparison to the other alien video game villains they are weak sauce.

Of course the most ruthless "alien video game villains" were the Zerg.

you just dont like them because the Covenant are not stereotypically covered in browns, grays, and blacks, look disgusting, have really sharp teeth, etc etc etc, you know the usual and unoriginal alien appearance

covenant are better than chimera, lucust and helghast because they are hard to fight and deadly, but they also wear richly colored armor and have vividly colored vehicles and ships. I love it, because its different and pleasing to the eye. Having bright colors as opposed to drab and boring colors does not make your games more "mature" than Halo. You sir, are boring.
