Halo 4 Spartan Ops - Season 1 drawing to a close
With the second half of the season, 343 really ramped up the intensity of the mission gameplay. The first 5 missions were bland, repeatedly visiting the same areas over and over. There was no real change in the settings, save for the epic Mantis battle on Ragnarok during Episode 3 (which was probably the most exciting mission during the first half). The last 4 missions have been more intriguing and enjoyable, throwing us into new areas with overwhelming amounts of enemies at times.
While I am both excited to watch the rest of the story today, I am also a bit saddened that this could possibly end Spartan Ops, which has been a staple of my Monday night gaming. Hopefully 343 doesn't end it there, and continues with a season 2. The story has to keep going.
