This is my biggest complaint in regards to 4. Grunts absolutely made the franchise. You could literally spend time trying to hear new Grunt dialogue and it counted as hardcore gaming. They gave so much to the franchise. Even the (standardized) H-2 Grunt doing a jump/fist pump when he killed me was awesome. 3 brought Grunts back to their creepy/nasty origins, but, 4 destroyed everything we loved. Is why I can't invest in it. Eff 4.
One of the possible plot holes of Halo 4. The MJOLNIR Mark VI had a translator, which is why we could understand the Covenant in 2 and 3, yet in Halo 4, we can't? Guess Cortana's not all she's cracked up to be if she broke it during the "firmware upgrade"...Funny thing is that she can be heard translating the Covies on the Covie terminals at the crash site on Requiem. So she should be able to relay such info to Chief.
Really big screw up. Also, getting rid of the flashlight was horrible. Every campaign, even Reach, had some way of illumination. While 90% of Halo 4 is bright, there are still some locations that are dark.
Lastly, I can't stand these dumbass Spartan IVs anymore. Truly Halo 2 marines were the best. When I nerfed the enemy health on Cairo Station via mods, the marines were killing them without my help! H2 marines had the best RoF and health, which were made even better with Angry and Mythic respectively. Grumpy has a video featuring the IWHBYD fight and they absolutely wrecked the enemy! I'm not even sure if Sputnik and Angry were on.
Whereas these "Spartans" are just reskinned Reach marines. They still take forever to get in seats, their melees are still too slow, they still drive around recklessly (especially with the Scorpion), and they still waste ammo on dead bodies...
Oh yeah, don't forget their love of driving off cliffs...
