Been playing this for a day, just wondered what everyone thinks of it so far.
Glossy user interface to start with, good on 'em putting the option for 4 Spartan classes (and 2 Covenant classes). From memory these are:
1. Recon - has sprint as its power.
2. Assault - has amour lock as its power.
3. Stealth - has active camo as its power.
4. Airbourne - has jetpack as its power.
The powers are quite good - allows a tactical edge when playing the differing game types. The game types at the mo range from multi-flag (flag collection and back to base - multiple flags), capture/defend the flag (single flag to defend/capture and return to base), team slayer, assasination, and odd-ball.
The available map types at the mo are somewhat limited - Sword Base and one other - they're a bit on the small side, but this is a beta I guess.....this does effect the enjoyment of game types - the multi-flag game is ruined as the flags are very, very easy to return to base.
Overall I'm enjoying it (and having to remind myself that it's a BETA), but one of my gripes are the armour upgrades. Points mean prizes in this game, and for performing well/winning you'll be awarded more points to 'spend' in the armoury. Now I know this isn't MW2/BBC2, but why dear god, why not include some form of bonus to armour upgrades - I know Bungie want a level playing field (and I appreciate that), but if that's the case, don't bung a load of verbage in boxes under the armour upgrades promising 'better stealth' etc. I sodding saved up for some nice armour upgrade only to find out it did piddle-all except make me .look a tit.
Anyhow, what's everyone else think to it? That is if anyone actually reads this part of the forum (and I hope they do......)
