: Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the tempestuous story of how
: "Cortana" came together, or barely did, it's not surprising that
: it's not an excellent level on par with the best of the Halo 3 campaign.
: But I too don't really hate on the level as much as popular sentiment.
: (Then again while the Library doesn't offer much in the way of varied
: experiences I too don't think it could do with much beyond cutting one of
: the levels.)

: Really aside from being able to turn off the Gravemind/Cortana moments for
: repeat playthroughs, the only thing I feel for "Cortana" is a
: sense that we missed an opportunity. It's clear that the payoff of
: Cortana's possible rampancy and rescuing her got short shrift, but so too
: did the chance to revisit places we visited in Halo 2, and see them in
: their Floodified state. We lost the majestic vistas and more open
: battlefields that made High Charity interesting. It never really felt like
: the same place.
…because I cut off my own message—interesting that 343/Vanguard resurrected this idea with the bifurcated infection form roles in Spartan Assault, where IMO it works well.
