I’ve heard a lot about Halo 4 and here is my opinion so far:
Loadouts: This is concerning me a bit because I think it’s a bad idea to let the players pick and customize their own weapons for the loadouts (even though you can’t pick power weapons). In my opinion, this this will create an unfair balance between high ranked players and low ranked players.
Weapon Spawns: This seems like a bad idea because the weapon spawned at a designated spot, 343i changed this to give newcomers a chance to get these power weapons as fast as the more experienced can, but why would they think about it that way? If these ‘newcomers’ play a couple of matches or find the weapons in Forge, won’t they have the same chance of getting them as more experienced players have?
Respawn Time: Can’t really see the problem in instand respawn except for the Extermination medal, but I guess they’ll work out a way to still get it… I hope…
Sprinting as default ability: No problem with that. Sprint is the only ability I use on Reach because I only like Sprint, so no complaints with this adjustement.
Forerunner Vision: Really? Really 343? I see no way that that could work out. They say they wanna draw new players to the Halo Universe, but something like this could make them loose some classic players. Bad idea 343i!
Spartan Points: They unlock armor abilities, Spartan Ops missions and cosmetic upgrades. This is not good! The missions are not a big deal, but the rest will, once again, give an advantage to higher ranked players! Again, taking the fairness out of the game. This seems to happen a lot in Halo 4 and this worries me a lot!
No Firefight: I didn’t really play Firefight a lot, but it was fun to play with friends or something like that, I am not happy to see it go…
In - game joining: Well, I don’t see a problem with that, but it DOES mean that when you play SWAT or Snipers with and against a bunch of noobs, the possibility that your teammates leave, making you able to own the entire opposing team, is greatly deminished.
Infinity: Well, for what I have heard, it seems like a great idea, a side story for the multiplayer. Nice one!
Campaign: Little to nothing has been revealed as of yet, but I think it’ll be ok. I’ve never been disappointed about a Halo Campaign yet, I even liked Halo 3: ODST’s Campaign, solely because it is another Halo Campaign.
I think I forgot a few things but these are the main points
I am such a huge Halo fan, and I will never stop supporting it, no matter what happens. I do, however, hope that the Campaign will be so epic that the multiplayer flaws won’t matter (which I don’t doubt will be).
PS: Sorry if you found any grammer and/or spelling errors, but I’m 16 and I am from Holland, so I don’t think it’s weird that I don’t speak perfect English
