I bought this game yesturday and have played a bit so far.

But I'm a little disappointed so far, what does everyone else think?? Does the game get better with progression?

I enjoyed it (only played the single player so far) but found it was a bit short, already finished it lol I never usually finish a game in a day. I quite like'd sneaking around in the dark found I adjusted my play style to suit as you can't "run and gun" like in Halo 3. the music was excelent too really added to the atmosphere. Just wish it was longer its priced as a full game...

EDIT: That was on Normal, Maybe I should have played on Heroic my skills have improved somewhat since H3 came out and that took me a few days on Normal to complete. Im going to go through again on Heroic anyhow.

I've played a couple of levels, and got up to the bit where the 2nd character played by Nathan Fillion ( of Firefly/Buffy fame) goes to save his lady.

The Halo engine is definetly showing it's age graphically, audiowise it's top notch. Gamewise it's okay... a bit slow for my liking but.

Best bit of the game for me to this point is the uplift reserve level on co-op, most of the other levels are bit too boring and way too similar to each other, lack of interesting parts and mostly solo, rare to fight with the people on your team, which is odd considering they were trying to make it less of a one man army game like the previous three games.

Also no dual wield...
