> they did not even copy it enough to cover basic custom game options or a understandable UI or even a working file share system
I think that the User Interface is perfectly easy to understand, the file share system they have built is one they have built from scratch afaik, and it’s not going to be perfect straight away.
They could release the file share right now but it’d be buggy as hell, which would you prefer a buggy file share now or a fully working file share a little later?
> people need to stop defending 343 or else they will never fix things because they think we are happy with a rushed half finished game
People can defend 343 if they wish, you cannot tell them what they can and cannot do. I’m not saying that Halo 4 is a complete game, there are still parts which do seem half finished.
Rather than simply bashing 343 why don’t you try and be constructive with your criticism rather than simply saying ‘this game sucks, I don’t like it, you did a terrible job and stop saying they did well’.
> 343 failed to understand that halo is halo for a reason and evolving it is great but be original about it, all they really have done is build off the failed shadowrun attempt of reach and add in extra elements of cod series
I’ve no idea what Shadowrun is so I can’t really comment about that. I’d disagree about building off of Reach, Reach and 4 are two different games made by two different companies, some elements such as Armor Abilites may have been taken onboard from Reach but they are two very different games in terms of playing style.
343 understood that Halo is Halo for a reason - and that reason is Chief (and Cortana).
Multiplayer maybe the major thing in gaming now, but at the Halo Franchise’s very Core is the storyline. Multiplayer may be the big selling point in a game but it is not the reason that Halo is Halo.
Elements made popular may have been added in and you may not like that fact but as I said, those elements are now standard for First Person Shooters.
rebut me all you want, call me a fanboy, call me an idiot, call me whatever you will, nothing will change the fact that I stand by 343 and that I think they have done a great job, but one that still needs some finishing touches and fixes in order for it to be an utterly brilliant job.
