^Or people have just moved on from Halo. I play a lot less than I have in past Halos. The game is awesome though and some if not all the things they "copied" from CoD were great. Permanent sprint, join in progress, and Sparton Ops are all fantastic new
"People have moved on from Halo" is pretty true. You can't keep rereleasing Halo 3 with a new coat of paint or people will complain it is too similar *cough* Cal of Duty Complainers *cough* and you can't change because people will complain *cough* OP *cough*.
Everything ends, and looks like Halo is starting to. I've always liked the franchise, but I've never been crazy about it. I just feel no reason to play much multiplayer on any game any more unless it's Co-Op and Spartan Ops is a huge fail.
@BEAST - Sprint is terrible for Halo. 343 made it a permanent feature so they have an excuse to make so many huge maps. 7 out of 10 maps in this game are big maps and this game has no close quarters combat because of it. Join in progress is terrible because
it means getting put into games on a team getting destroyed so you are given losses that you have nothing to do with. Spartan Ops is just endless waves of enemy farming with no purpose at all. You can't even earn xp after rank 130 so the mode becomes totally
useless. Not to mention they recycle the same 4 maps and repeat the same dialogue over and over.
