People are hating on Spartan Ops saying they’ve used levels from campaign, when in fact Reach Firefight also used levels from the campaign albeit more bland than the ones in Halo 4.
People tend to forget before going off on a rant, plus seeing it’s Halo 4, they expect everything to be from scratch.
I love the new Spartan Ops. I find them brilliant. the game needed a fresh new direction for itself and no matter what it did people would always find fault in it. I find it easier to replay over and over again than firefight, which just got incredibly boring eventually.
Plus, the cinematic episodes really do make them more enjoyable.
Episode 3 is the best one yet! I just really really want legendary matchmaking
I completely understand them using modified sections of the Campaign, but them using Multiplayer maps? Come on.
They should just use Campaign maps in new ways. Like I want to see them re-use the Mantis section on “Infinity”, but have us on foot only.

Finally, someone agrees! I think it should have an option to choose, rather than: 2 players (normal), 3 or more (heroic). Even Legendary isn’t too difficult. How about adding skulls, and more SOps challenges?
I wouldn’t mind if they didn’t keep reusing the same chunks and adding a few forge pieces or making us play through them backwards and pretending they’re new.

Who said they were pretending they were new maps? Just because you thought they were new maps doesn’t mean they’re pretending they’re new maps.
Better that than the a carbon copy of some levels in Reach.
I find that SO has gradually been getting better. It’s hard to find objective mixed with killing waves of enemies to be more repetitive than camping in a corner stat-padding.
Another issue I see people talking about is reusing segments of campaign and MP maps. The issue is that 343i is working on 50 missions at a time per season. Put that work in with their focus on campaign and multiplayer you have to realize that they just dont have time to make things from scratch for everything. I for one am glad they went with it. It was fun killing hunters on Ragnarok. It felt like a practice mode of some form for MP.
All I feel that is missing is meta-scoring. Helps boost replay value.
