PA Report: Halo 4’s Spartan Ops is caught between a story expansion and Firefight, and loses our interest
I'm 3/5 missions through Episode 2, and this is largely where I'm at as well. The narrative and mission objectives are not as compelling as Campaign, and the combat and structure of the missions echo Firefight without any of the subsystems or cadences that made Firefight what it was.
We're in the second episode of a ten-part series, I've seen plenty of series start off slow and find their footing after a few episodes. So I'm by no means judging the whole thing. I'm looking forward to next week's content a great deal. But I hope thing get shaken up a bit along the way, and soon.
