Are you people really this ignorant? "Same enemies, same guns" ... NEVER has a Halo game had the same guns and enemies as the game before it, and this one is promised to be the most different of all of them. If you want to see a game that never improves, look at COD.. Its not that i don't like it, its just a known fact that it never improves.

COD and MOH are for earth bound soldiers.

Halo is for Astronaught Warriors,

I love this game more than life itself.

Halo i abase myself before thee.

I worship you as the one true god.

It's nearly time to fight the holy fight one more time.

Bring it on !

"Halo go again!"  Can't microsoft make another exclusive franhise instead of re heating the same food and serving it to it's fans, pimpin the halo franhise like the cash cow it is. 


 I'm not a fan boy i just would appreciate a fresh concept.  We complainned and mocked the jaws and rocky movies for the same reason.  Too much of anything is bad.  Less is sometimes more.  I think it's about quitting when your a head, tying up a story in a way that's satisfying like the original star wars trilogy.  Naughty dog made the uncharted trilogy and are now moving on to other exclusive projects("The last of us", etc), Infamous concluded the cole magrath story in it's sequel.


  If i still had my 360 i would have stopped playing halo games by now for the same reason i've lost interest in the assasins creed franchise.  These long drawn out story lines are i lke an over diluted cordial drink, bland!

Worst FPS series of all time.  I hate COD but Halo is just the pits.  Graphics and gameplay are shocking.
