I wouldn’t say his speech was the best on any levels. I’m sure most people ignored it and played it off.
Halo 2’s ending did cut off at the most appropriate of times. Bungie planned for it to end on Earth with MC but that would probably of ended with the Flood landing on Earth with Halo starting off as a we’ve been hiding for for along time speech or Halo 2 would of ended with MC at a base and with Truths ship in sight than MC saying one of the most famous lines in gaming history which has been quoted in many parodies even SRIV.
You might see Halo 2’s ending as a WTF but to there are many who see it as the perfect cliffhanger.
Everything close to being lost,forging uneasy allegiances, learning new info about this mysterious Forerunner structure capable of activating EVERY HALO RING with a flip of a button,The Flood is loose and Master Chief unarmed in the most powerful ship the Covenant has leaving Cortana behind with The Gravemind.
Halo 5 has alot to live up to compared to Halo 2 and since the steaks aren’t really as high because before we had the threat of Truth killing all life in our galaxy. 343i said the whole universe will be at steak now and Didact didn’t do much besides wipe out a city’s population. I know that is still a big thing but when he was firing the Composer I felt like he just fired the Death Star.
My heart sank, I felt like i failed all those people on Earth, Lasky helping was in vein, The Didact, Cortana exploded and all MC had left was vengeance.
but alot of that was taken away when Cortana is somewhat alive, than MC technically kills her, Didact fate left unknown, only a city was wiped out and Lasky in Spartan Ops didn’t seem to give half a damn neither did anyone else. It would of been nice to be in Spartan Ops and hear someone say
“For New Phoenix!” after killing a Covey or Promethean.
343i needs to drive a fell for the dramatic and make the Forerunners alot more powerful, before in the trilogy the Forerunners power was not much since the Sentinels were more like groundskeepers than warbots so it made sense that the mighty empire wasn’t destroying us all. Counting the Sentinel Enforcers from Halo 2 is another thing to add on that this was one of the weaker things that the Forerunners left behind just to keep the peace. So i was very surprised to see Prometehans were the Forerunners most elite soldiers and weren’t really that hard to fight, but i’m rambling on.
Also is Spartan Assault really coming to the 360. I have an ad for it on my dashboard but i fell like it is misleading.
