Personally, Reach was terrible. It didn’t feel like Halo and was a terrible way to end with bungie. Halo 4 has the opportunity to be great, and this is what I’m hoping for. I’ll split it into sections based on the game modes.
- Stronger allied AI. Actually, AI in general. Reach was advertised to have really smart AI, when all they really did was make elites jump all over the place. Everything else stayed the same, grunts were still worthless, and the allied troopers didn’t even need to be there. I want to feel like the troopers do something. Make them shoot something, and give them something like a 10% damage boost so they can actually help.
-Strong story. I know this will be a tough one, but I expect a gripping campaign. Not much to say.
-HUGE BATTLES. God I still remember assault on the control room. The area was huge and there were marines and enemies everywhere doing battle. In Reach, there was only one huge battle, and it was just a cutscene. The Tip of the Spear I think? Seeing all those warthogs and troopers gunning it towards the banshees. Soooooo siickkkk. But nope…all the mission turns out to be is you and kat for the most part. Take from what was successful, we want large scale battles.
-Music. I really don’t know how 343 will top Marty, but they need to get someone who can impress us.
-Ambience. Give us something like ODST and Halo: CE. Its dark, don’t know what is going to happen next, and we’re vulnerable.
-Please no AA. Self Explaining.
-Absolutely NO BLOOM. There have been 4 Halo titles without bloom and they fared farrrrr better than Reach. Bloom ruins the pace of the game, and turns skill into luck. There’s really no reason for it.
-Halo 2 or 3 movement speed and jumping.
-Do not ship the game with a couple of maps, including one which is a “forge world” and then fill matchmaking with only maps on the “forge world”. Not pointing any fingers. Give us some diversity.
-Give us more guns. I really don’t know why Bungie didn’t just include every gun in every game in Reach. I understand there will be completely new guns, and that’s cool, but at least include the old guns in forge so we can play with them and make our own maps using completely different guns. I miss the smg.
-More vehicle maps! I cant even think of the last time I got lasered in a warthog. I miss it.
-Nothing I can think of.
-Same with the guns. Give us some diversity and you’ll be a lot more successful with Halo 4.
-Firefight in Reach was well done. Nothing else I can think of.
And that is personally what I want. Thanks for reading!
here is a late edit haha: I’ve always wanted to be able to place ammo crates in forge, like the ones in firefight. It would make infection maps so much easier instead of individually placing guns everywhere.
