I understand that they want to let chumps who spend wasted money on their cosmetic paywall, but the lack of team colors just throws me off. There isn’t even an option in settings for different types of colorblindness. My brother can’t see red or green. That tiny red outline in your enemies doesn’t even show up for him. We’re wasting valuable time identifying a friend or foe! When the blood is a-pumpin’ and all hell has broken loose in the midst of a heated firefight, that fraction of a delay can be your downfall. I don’t know about anyone else, but if I’m on the blue team, and I see a blue armored spartan (even with a thin tiny red line around it), I hesitate.
Want to know what doesn’t hesitate? The mongoose. I’ll admit, it was fun, and still kinda is, driving these zippy little spazzes around. But you controlling them is sooo much more difficult than it used to be. With as fast as the vehicles are now, I can just feel the Initial D soundtrack in my soul.
But what hits harder than that is the lunging punches. The reach on melee may as well be in a RedBull commercial with the wings you soar on as you punch! Can I cash in some frequent flyer mileage for supply drop? I know it’s a stretch, but I just feel like it goes further than it used to.
What’s even more of a stretch is believing I would EVER pay for armor on a Halo game… No thanks. After the travesty of Halo 5 removing my couch co-op, and now this? Sorry. I won’t be purchasing this game. I’ve played since Combat Evolved and tortured all my Call of Duty friends with my constant need to play (what I thought was) a superior game.
