In Response To: My Brief Beta Impressions (DHalo)

: Honestly...I think the beta looks like a ton of fun, and seems like a decent
: progression of Halo's multiplayer (except for the sword. Seriously. Dumb
: look guys).

: However, I really, really want the sound effects and the look and feel to be
: separate from the single player. I want my Chief and my story to be more
: classic Chief/Halo. I get why the Multiplayer is moving in this direction
: and seems like a ton of fun, but these changes don't fit with the
: narrative side of Halo that I know and love. Don't muck it up, 343i.

I'm taking you to mean the gameplay/interface elements rather than visuals - visuals and action sounds they at least have a way to explain in canon, as opposed to things like screen markers, text, game announcing, all of that type of 'overlay' stuff that doesn't really exist in-armor, but rather in-video-game. To me classic gameplay is more the former, and less the latter. The more multiplayer looks like a "multiplayer game" instead of "spartans duelling" as it were, I wholeheartedly agree - that's straying from what made Halo Halo, IMO.
