I've always enjoyed the games, some of the story line in a few were a bit weak but always great gameplay for the trilogy + reach (ODST does not exist to me). The novels and Forward Unto Dawn did a nice little bridge between Halo 3 and Halo 4 and what I've played so far in single player is an interesting/engaging story so far.

I'm having good fun with it. The single player is great. Won't try out multiplayer until I finish getting through this. The third level was my favorite so far.

As a HUGE Halo fan myself I must say that the storyline was good. However it did not "feel" like Halo that much at all.

All of the Halo games ( with the exception of Halo wars.....what a turd that was ) are excellent games though regardless. ( That INCLUDES ODST Arinoth. Tsk Tsk!!! )

I went for the Limited Package and got it at my local Gamestop at the Midnight Launch.

I never read the novels or anything, so I feel like some of the goings ons are not explained as well as they should be in-game.

I actually thought it felt a little too much like the other Halo games. The first bit of the game felt a bit fresh and different, but by the mid-point of mission 4 Master Chief is right back into the thick of it again. With Halo 3's ending they could have taken this story anywhere they wanted. A little disappointed on where they decided to go with it. I guess when you're investing this much money into something you have to play it safe.

The art direction of the game is phenomenal. I find myself just looking around at everything during the quiet moments and taking it all in. Great atmosphere.

Is it just me or do the trailers have a very "Avatar" feel to them? Does this hold true for the actual game as well? I'm actually thinking of picking this up, if nothing else just for the graphics.

Why buy an XBox? The PC you have, should run the game just fine.
