In Response To: Re: Also, just thought I'd ask . . . (ArteenEsben)

: I didn't have that specific problem, but I did have the game
: crash-to-dashboard elsewhere.

: I enjoyed it, but I can't recommend the game at the $15 price tag. Even $10
: feels steep. The free-to-play-esque trappings, such as buying one-time-use
: loadout enhancements, is not something I'm a fan of. The main campaign
: also seems to be solo only, which is a shame and limits how much I want to
: replay it.

I can agree with that. The one time load outs didn't bug me too much; it's just something I ignored pretty much. Co-op through the story would have been cool, but with the dedicated co-op mode I don't really see it as much of a problem. Granted, it's against the Flood rather than Covenant, so it could play pretty differently. I haven't tried it yet.

: That said, it's neat and pulls off the Halo feel well. It's got weapon
: swapping, melees, grenades, turrets, vehicle boarding, armor abilities,
: recharging shields, and a variety of enemy types, all used to great
: effect. The developers on this game "get" Halo. Delightfully,
: there's lots of content from previous games. As a huge Halo Wars fan, I
: love seeing wolverines, grizzlies, and more. On the covenant side, it's
: great to fight brutes and drones again after Halo 4.

: In general, it's nice to see non-FPS Halo games. I'd be up for a Spartan
: Assault 2.

I'll agree to all of that. They pulled off that Halo feeling extreme well in my opinion, and for me that's worth the price of admission.
