I've always been a fan since I got it back when Halo 2 came out. No joke, this game is gorgeous, addicting and has to be the best Halo. The campaign, I'll admit, is a bit short for it really feel like a true campaign but it makes up for it in depth and beauty. I love how Master Chief is allowed more dialect and more interaction with Cortana where Chief unfortunately has to watch her deteriorate mentally. This brings out Chief's humane side, a side we haven't seen where he's powerless to help her. Not only is the story is so engaging but the visuals are breathtaking. The view in a lot of the chapters are awe inspiring that I wish I had a better tv to appreciate to it's full potential. Though, it did have a lot of glare. A good example to use would be like the recent Star Trek movie. Not only is the story great but they keep it going with unlockables and Spartan Ops episodes. You learn more about the Forerunner and their war with the ancient more advanced humans and the flood. Not with historically writing in terminals like Halo 3 but with awesome videos you unlock in Halo Waypoint. Spartan Ops shows what happens six months after Master Chief saves the day (Spoiler Alert :P). It's fun and it's a great way to rack up points to unlock more armor. My only gripe is the lag. If you're paired with a player with cheap internet you're gonna have a bad time(Stupid reddit). Matchmaking is so much better. It's great that they adopted CoD's running controls but what is more fantastic is that now players can join your team in game. I hated how people would quit on me and I was left alone 1 vs 4 or 6 or whatever that is now a thing of the past. Sooo many unlockables in this game. You'll feel like a kid in a candy store when you are customizing your spartan and profile.

Cons:
Short campaign
Lag in Spartan Ops (depending on who you're matched with)
Glare
Warthogs and Ghosts are easy to flip when driving.

Pros:
Awesome visuals
Engaging story
High replay
Improved Matchma

absolutely love this game.....feel like the matchmaking is lacking in how many playlists there are but I feel like they'll update it to add more in the future, but besides that im pretty impressed with 343 industries.
