I liked the Library - Esp because of the Flood being in it being in a hall with 30 of those things and a shot gun

Good Times

I'm with you. It was tough on legendary but it was a blast playing it with my brother.

I loved that level.

So much fun on legendary, and SO frustrating. But not as annoying as Cortana in Halo 3. Or about 80% of Halo 2 with the near-invincible sword wielding golden elites round every corner lol.

The library was incredibly lazy game design and a stain on an otherwise flawless game. The entire level is the complete opposite of what you'd been doing up to that point. You're thrown into this beautiful open world game for 10 hours, then forced to dick around in id-like corridors for what seems like an eternity.

Only a douche like Tom Chick would defend something as awful as the library from HCE and call us whiners for hating it. Thanks Tom, for reminding me that Halo CE made the mistake of including an entire level that played out like all of those clown car moments from CoD.

Completely agreed. It's one of the worst designed levels in a big-budget game I've ever seen. How anyone can say anything to the contrary is beyond me.

Not a surprise it comes from Chick, though. That man's a professional troll.

In the Library's defence, it did add alot of tension.

Although I do agree alot of it was frustrating, but nowhere near as frustrating as the High Charity level in Halo 3 where you have to rescue Cortana.

Finished this level a couple days ago, just as frustrating as it was 10 years ago.
