Hnnnggg!! You might want to wait a few days before answering this -or not- but I have hope again!! HW2 was SOOOO Halo 2 that I am hyped and excited and I love everything again ^^ I don't care about anything else, we have the action-packed scene, Spartans kicking ass, great strategy and also cool characters!! I FEEL REVIVED!!
HW2 feels like it’s setting up its own side-trilogy, or Spartan Ops-esque episodic story at the Ark with the Spirit of Fire vs Banished conflict that exists wholly separately from the fuckery going on in the Milky Way.
If they continue that (we’ve got at least two campaign expansions to come at some point over the next 6 months), then they’ve earned my interest and investment in that.
