Ugh, that's really disappointing. I was really hoping for some more four-hour-long epic CTF matches. We used to play LAN matches at lock-ins and at the end of the game even the worst players had over a hundred kills. I could've sworn Frankie mentioned it'd be possible to relive the classic multiplayer experience. I hope to god it's true.

I wouldnt be surprised if Reach stayed ahead of BF3 for activity on xbox live and if it doesnt I would attribute that cod fans just dont want to pay for the "extra" perks and are playing BF instead.

Anyway Ive played alot of halo and certainly one thing I dislike is the ADS/Zoom system, its also something that could be changed in H4.
Umm, no. Unreal Championship and Ghost Recon kick-started it. Halo 2 didn't show up for two years. The series suffered horribly due to the lack of a Live-enabled Halo 1.5. 2 would've been much better if Bungie had learned some lessons first.

Evade's pretty awesome, too. It's actually my go-to. Sprint's only supposed to be for Spartans and evade's only supposed to be for Elites, but sometimes they're both available and I just stick with evade. Lots of fun.

For me, the series goes Halo 1 >>>>>>>>>>>> Halo Reach > Halo 3 >>>>>>>>>>>> Halo 2. What an abortion Halo 2 was...
