I am officially at the half-way point on Halo 4. Five out of Ten Levels Complete. Infinity was a bit of a frustrating level because there was so many points that forced you to clear-out enemies before you could move on. Eh. Just what you want when you’re trying to rush through for an achievement(!)
I suspect that the novelty in this level is supposed to come through the final stage, where you get to control a ‘Mantis’, which is essentially a mech. I think the market is probably a bit saturated with similar levels, or it certainly is now. Perhaps this level, when it first came out, was innovative for its time, but now I just get angry that I’m not already at the end of the level and aliens aren’t dying quick enough for my liking.
Perhaps that reflects more on me than the game.
While I’m not ‘hating’ my Halo experience, I really do feel like I’m just ticking a box. I don’t know why it developed the cult status it did around Xbox, but I just don’t find the gunplay all that engaging. I’m quietly hoping that Halo 5 gives me something more rapid fire and maybe even some iron sights, but I’m keeping my expectations low on purpose.
