As I read more and more comments from players I notice that there is about 2-3 types of people:
- they want a lot of change
- they want the old Halo back 100% with not changes
- those like me who are in between
Halo CE was a success mainly because it was the first of its kind, but what made it stay a successs was the little improvements.
I am a story driven player…I will get the game…play the campaign and beat it before I’ll even touch the other parts. Halo 1, 2, and 3 all had a great story filled with emotion and excitement and mystery. The play was driven to keep playing until its over, they never wanted to stop!
Graphics were huge improvements, along with weapons, xbox live, and even the button layout.
ODST followed ODSTs and had major changes to the gamplay itself…dual welding removed, slower pace, no shield, ect. …basically the game would have been aweful if we were still playing as Master Chief. Halo Reach didnt impress to the extent of Halo 1,2,3 either…Bungie expanded ODST and combined it with a Spartan and added items that never existed before…some worked others didnt.
I am a player who came to love Halo when it was new…Halo was what made me buy my 1st Xbox and Halo 3 was the reason I bought my 360!
If it was me, I would go to the Halo 1,2,3 games and expand those…the emotion while playing, the easy controls, and the never ending fun! With matchmaking in Halo 3 I never got bored…Halo reach I do…too many differences when it comes down to armor abilities and load outs…
Halo 4 has the potential to be a new “Halo Combat Evolved” as in it has the ability to be completely new and exciting and mysterious! I loved the button layout of Halo 3…it made things simple…Master chief could dual weld so why would that be removed? We play as a super soldier spartan…we should be faster and stronger than marines.
From what I have noticed was that gamers loved Halo 3 the most out of every game…find out why…we are playing Halo…not COD or any other FPS…I dont want to see Halo change too much…I have been with Halo from the start and I hope to stay with it proudly until the end.
Caution should be taken…Keep Halo “HALO”!!!
