I love the game, but I came away from it with one major gripe. The grunts.
The first mission I thought I kept hearing a computer terminal or something, it wasn’t until the second encounter or so that I realized that it was the grunts. It sounded distant, mechanical and unintelligible. Which leads to part 2, because of the previous, the grunts as the best source of humor just wasn’t there even with the grunt funeral skull on. My kids don’t play Halo, but they watch and even they say (before H4), the grunts never get old.
Some of them also looked like Gonzo from the muppets.
I thought the elites and jackals were very well done, but the grunts? Aye carumba.
