I just want simple a simple 1-50 level system. If that means only I can see it, then so be it

Halo 4 armor depending on where you pre-order. Best Buy skin looks horrendous.

I prefer the more 'classic' armor variations from Halo 3

I do not know how I feel about the "specializations." Seems like Halo is starting to get out of control. I am as big a fanboy for Halo as anyone else though, so I will of course still get it and try it out, but right now I am not sure I am really happy with the direction 343 is taking it. Who knows, maybe it makes it a lot more fun, we'll have to wait and see I guess.

I didn't read all of them, but I like the idea of specializations. However the Pioneer specialization sounds really stupid. I am heading into this game with an open mind. I've played so much Halo Reach that the standard formula has gotten stale for me. I'm all for change... as long as it turns out good.

Also, I just watched the video in the link posted above, multiplayer looks sick.

Was there really something that wrong with Halo 2 multiplayer that they had to add all of this extra stuff in? Skin customization is cool and thats the only thing i think we need. Perks, power ups, and "classes" are too far away from the Halo 1 and 2 experiences that got me hooked.

It got stale. Most Finnish (and foreign) reviews I've read of recent Halo games said the franchise needs to evolve, among those were reviewers I've played against several times on past Halo games. There's so much competition these days among FPS games that you can't sit still. Halo Reach still does so many things better than CoD games yet every one plays those.

Any information on the stats system? Like k/d? Win/losses? I am kind of a stats ***** so that stuff matters to me (well in the beginning anyway)

(Also this isnt an argument with people who hate the k/d stat. Just asking if one was present)

Hell, put Halo: CE back there and i'm sold. I miss the days when bad kids were bad, and good players shone.

I'm not sure stale is the right word.

But as far as the game, elements of it did get repetitive and tired.

It was still fun, and yes, the better you were, the more you probably enjoyed it, but it seemed a bit dated when compared with other shooters of the time.

I don't know that it had to evolve to the point where it might be a different experience, but it certainly needed to adapt to be a bit more current.

They have Halo 2 rules and maps in reach. You know what, it's boring after a few games. I missed the pistol but that's about it.

I think he meant online. If they would have put an online in the Anniversary edition, I know SO many people that would have came back. As someone who played Halo PC for like... 10 years or so... there used to be a huge following. Ahh good times. Everyone would either pistol or snipe. If you could out pistol them, you knew you were "better".

That's just false. If Halo was the best/most addictive shooter on the market Halo would still be on top, but it's not because it's simply not that great of a multi-player experience.

Halo was at it's peak in Halo:CE/2/3, because it's core gameplay was unique and incredibly addicting. Halo was it's own unqiue type of fps, then came along Halo Reach which tried to attract the "CoD Fanbase"; perks, loadouts, what a joke. The ranking system made sense in Halo 3 and actually required skill and dedication to trying to hit 45-50, Halo Reach? Rank means nothing, just means how much spare time you have to grind out exp.

That's not Halo, that's a pitiful attempt to get gain a bigger fanbase while sacrificing everything that made Halo, Halo.

It is online!!!! I swear 90% of the people in this thread complaining about Reach have never played it or not played it in years.

You can play Beaver Creak CTF or whatever on Reach with Halo CE/2 rules. Pistols are beast. There are several other maps on there as well.

Halo is on one console so it's never going to be the top FPS. Ranking system is still there, you just have to play ranked games aka Arena. Halo 3's ranking system was exploited by boosters, that was a problem. There are no perks in Reach, and six loadouts. Only two loadouts in ranked, how the hell is that ruining Halo? So are you telling me adding two load outs to ranked games drastically ruined the experience. Did you expect them to release the exact same game with a bit better graphics, different maps and maybe a new weapon?!?!? Honestly, when is the last time you have played Reach?

Halo is much better FPS still than COD. Reach has been out two years, they spit out 2 COD games in that time frame. Halo is about teamwork and map control. In COD you can spawn with whatever weapon you like and camp choke points/objectives. The learning curve is much higher in Halo. If you never played either in your life, COD is just easier to pick up.
