(When it works) An overall great experience besides the servers being slammed last night. My friends and I were only able to play a few good matches before we could no-longer connect to Matchmaking. It’s about what I expected from the first day of the open beta though.
Hopefully the servers are more stable tonight. I was just getting warmed-up when I gave-up on finding a match. I also hope they add the 2 larger maps soon, last night there was only the 2x 8-player maps open (of the 4 total beta maps).
It didn’t take long to get used to the new slightly tweaked controls. Getting into the habit of using the armor abilities took a bit longer, but is a great addition. Learning the maps and getting a feel for the new gameplay was holding me back a bit compared to my usual Halo 3 skill (I’m no pro mind you).
