I enjoyed reading this review, even though I disagree with the feelings about the game. XD

Question, though: is there any particular reason why you only stuck to talking about the Campaign?

Thanks!

Mainly because that's the reason I buy Halo games. Yeah, the multiplayer is cool and all, but I but and enjoy the games based mainly on the single player.

There are some striking similarities between this review and my own. I'm certainly not accusing you of making off with my ideas, but it seems like we walked away from the campaign with an almost identical impression.

He's not saying that, but he sure is thinking it loudly.

No, I seriously don't think EmP would do that. I'd say we both simply had the same feelings toward the campaign and decided to tackle them from precisely the same angle. That in and of itself is noteworthy, but I'm chalking it up to coincidence.

I hadn't actually read your review, Suskie. Ironically, because I try not to read up on games I plan to review so I don't get influenced by anything. Now that I have read it, perhaps I should do so earlier in future to try and make sure I don't offer near identical rewrites.

I actually deliberated about the fall back point for a while because, on my first playthrough on normal, I cleared out the area I (we) highlighted, then wandered around for ages, shooting at the banshee. wandering where to go. But it was on co-op and normal. When I started the single player shortly afterwards on Heroic and expected to stroll that part again, I got my arse well and truly kicked. Trying to convey that in the review made me sound arrogant about the first trip, so it got power edited.

I actually like how you elaborated on that scenario more than I did. It left less space to talk about other things, but I don't think that's a problem because you still made the point just as clearly. I enjoyed reading it, even if the whole time I was going, "Wait a minute..."

I might actually write up another review in the near future that talks about the multiplayer in more depth now that I've taken the game online. Then again, maybe I won't.
