Started it when I got the XSX and now played the rest. Really incredible how this game's visuals hold, easy to forget it's a 360 title.
I've said it before, the Flood is one of the lamest enemies ever, the Prometheans were a big upgrade and they brought cool some cool guns with them and different combat dynamics.
Like with most Halos environments go from boring to cool, lots of different sections implemented with different levels of success. Glorious skyboxes.
It's a fine game imo but damn, Cortana is a pathetic character. The voice acting, or the actor's direction, is pretty awful, when she goes full on hysterical I just cringe. And her character's design... Why's she semi naked? Is so out of place, ridiculous really. And it's a shame because occasionally the interaction between MC and her goes to cool touching places. And the bigger overall narrative arch is so whatever.
Then there's the sound. Why does everything sounds so dead? Guns, voice acting, music, very little dynamic range, like an emotionless flat line. Tried to check if I could change something in the options but they are lacking.
I did enjoyed replaying it, gameplay is still solid but story and lore stuff are lame.
