I've had a grenade of mine blow up and shove some warthog wreckage through a door, which splattered the enemy within. I've hijacked a falcon and dumped it over a cliff killing the two enemy gunners still on the chopper who had no idea what happened. I've had tons of epic capture the flag games. I've had 100s of awesome gaming moments in halo, and relatively few in more realistic games like call of duty or battlefield. To each his own, but if you took some time to get used to it, halo multiplayer is very rewarding.
Plus the whole shields/jumping thing is overblown, if you have some sense you can take down shields in a second. Its no COD takedown, but people die quickly enough I assure you.
That preview looked good, I'm leery of 343, but overall looks like a good effort so far. Very glad the BR is back.
Don't be leery, I have faith if you enjoyed Halo 2.. the head of Bungie back then for Halo 2, now heads this project for 343 Frank O' Connor.. and Halo 2 was a blast on multiplayer..
Reach was just a fail..
