Re: Still wish we could switch to classic soundtra

: I for one agree with their decision. If it's in the menu many players won't
: even know or go in and change it, and they'll end up listening to the new
: music no matter what. I like that the Classic mode will be a totally
: faithful classic experience.

: It's also much simpler to just switch them together on the fly from a
: usability perspective. If I'm in the middle of a game session I don't want
: to leave the game to go to a menu to switch anything.

It was an option in HCEA (which is in the MCC, by the way), so it should be an option in H2A. There are no technical obstacles. And if someone doesn't realize that the game has sound options (which are always in the same set of menus that lets them change controller layouts, look sensitivity, appearance, etc.), well, too bad. Halo has always had menus on both the main screen and on the pause screen forever in fact, most games period have a pause menu so there's no excuse, and even if it's someone's first experience with Halo ever they should be able to figure it out on their own. Hell, 343I could even put a notification somewhere that says "Note: You can change between the classic and remastered soundtrack in the options menu." Remember all those little notes Bungie put in the Halo games when you were searching for matches in MP? Something like that.

In any case, reducing the number of options is always a bad thing. If you give the players various options to tailor their experience to better suit their own preferences, then you take it away from them, that's totally not cool.
