So far, I’ve been enjoying Spartan Ops. With the third episode, I feel like Sops is finally kicking into gear. So, let’s go further.
I am aware that it is baldly impossible to make new playspaces every single episode, so let’s make the most of what we have. Send us to more Multiplayer maps. Instead of reusing old maps, redecorate. New lighting, new environment, etc. Like Sword Base and The Package in Reach.
For crying out loud, let’s get MOAR STORY going in the gameplay sections. Again, Episode 3 is beginning to delve into that, but let’s not make the cutscenes saturated with story and meaning, and then switch gears and say “HURR DURR KILL MOAR ENEMIES” in the actual missions. I enjoy the Spartan Ops gameplay, but it’s honestly a bit repetitive at this point when the missions are isolated from the cutscenes.
SWITCH POVs. I know Crimson is supposed to be your outlet for the whole “Your Spartan” thing, but let’s get Majestic’s POV. The way Sarah Palmer tells it, Majestic is barely capable of knocking two rocks together. Let’s change that perception.
This isn’t necessary, but introduce the Arbiter. Please. I miss him.
Spartan Ops has the potential to be the best thing since sliced anything, so let’s use it to that potential. Like I said, Spartan Ops is going in the right direction, but it can go further.
