343 industries had so many years to work on this game that there should be no excuses for this. Anyway im just gonna just list stuff out. Let me know yall’s opinions on this.
1)unlocking weapons, armour abilities, etc. through ranking up.Halo was great because it didn’t matter if you had just started playing or had been playing for years, everyone started out the same on the map and it was based on skill, not whoever had more free time to play the game nonstop
2)maps are way too small!!!
3)Ordinance drops…copying COD much?
4)scoring not based on number of kills anymore. A team should not increase their score because of assists or anything like that.
5)insta-respawn. This turns halo into a just run and shoot game. no strategy
6)menus look horrible.
7)lack of customization for emblems. very few to choose from
8)grenade indicator. gets rid of the point of throwing a grenade at an opponent when they’re not looking
9)Campaign not so great. Not much is explained about the didact or why humanity is at war with the covenant. Also it seems like 343i is trying too hard to make a movie during the cutscenes…ex: when the officer is SCREAMING “arrest him” at masterchief…seriously??? just seemed lame
10)Never again do a “push this series of buttons” type of ending again
11)gameplay mechanics just didn’t seem halo like. I know this had been repeated more times than can be counted but, it feels like i’m playing call of duty with the instarespawn, sprinting, shortened health
In my view, 343i has taken halo and completely downgraded it
