Just from your mention of the graphics, I'll take all what you said as invalid LOL.
Reach better graphics?
I know I wear glasses...but seriously H4 beats reach.
I'm sure there isn't that much pixel differences, but H4 looks very very good - especially the cinematics - I mean I had to check I was playing on the Xbox when I saw the graphics. Absolutely gorgeous.
Now as for the game - I finished episode 1 of spartan ops on legendary, very easily - wasn't much of a challenge really. Sure I died more than a few times, but it wasn't anything impossible.
I'm now playing through the campaign, getting achievements as I go by on solo legendary - 1st play through.
It isn't AS HARD as the IGN review makes it out to be, although there are parts, that are literally impossible, without trying to run through them, and I'm only on the 4th mission!
So far though, story line, and no I won't spoil it, is very good, a very good take on 343 for continuing the story, rather than prolonging it. Props to them so far, can't wait to know the ending!
I've always said Halo has the best story lines - I still stand behind it
