So far this is awesome. I'm about 20 minutes in. Combat the entire time. Barely used the gun.

The grappleshot is your friend.

Don't want to ruin too much, but I'm loving the new Halo. Campaign mode was a separate download, but whatever.

I held off on both COD and Battlefield, s this one might be the play.

Although I haven't played a Halo game in years, so I'll probably be pretty behind on whatever story continuity there's been.

This game is 10X the game COD was. I haven't played the new Battlefield. COD was unplayable unwatchable shit compared to this.

The gameplay is really fun. Some of the rooms are like you're shitting me with the bad guy count. But the ammo management system is great. Unless you're a total spammer you won't run out of ammo. Then the game designer leaves these crates laying around you can pickup which act like massive grenades.

Did you play the new Doom game on the XBox? That ammo system was shit. Even on normal difficulty I was constantly running out. This isn't that. Nowhere close.

Then learn the grappleshot melee combo. The melee part is automatic. You'll 1HK a lot of bad guys that way.

The graphics are really good. IDK if they're ZOMG NEXT GEN, but the game looks great. Typical Halo graphics.

So far so good. I haven’t made it very far because my damn family won’t get out of my media room. But it’s fun so far. I enjoy the open world concept.

I really liked it although it had its flaws.

The open world is great. Do the side missions because they’re fun.

Seriously take the time to get all the Spartan Cores you can.

Use those to max out your shield first then the grapple shot. I never got into the other abilities.

The grapple shot melee combo is the ticket to success.

The boss fights at times seem like rigged bullshit but they are beatable. YouTube videos are helpful with a couple hard ones.

I had the most success with the standard Spartan machine gun and then the Spartan rifle with the scope and three round burst. That won me 95% of all fights.

Be patient when fighting Hunters. They can kick your ass fast. Just move around with the grapple shot and wear them down.
