Hi I finished the Halo 4 campaign on Legendary last night and I'm about to spoil the ending so DON'T READ ON IF YOU HAVEN'T FINISHED THE CAMPAIGN YET (Huge Spoilers) ALERT Okay anyway I just wanted to know what everyone's feelings were about Cortana in the game. I liked Cortana in all the other Halo games and in the books. But I can't help but feel like in Halo 4 she was just not the same. She wasn't her quirky self. I also realise that some people will completely disagree with me about this but I found her annoying. The whole rampancy plot was dumb in my opinion I understand the rampancy but the way they went about it was annoying. She would have her sort of fits at the most annoying times and the consistency really wasn't there for me I would of liked to see them add some "fits" when it didn't matter at all and I mean more than a slight voice change or the HUD fluttering there was only a couple instances where she seemed like she was going crazy and it didn't happen at bad moments. At the end of the game when she, for lack of a better word died I didn't really feel sad(which btw a couple of days ago I would have never dreamed of saying). Anyway the ending scene to me just felt cheesy the whole arm touching thing was a bit overboard. (Also it was never explained how Cortana saved John at the end so if anyone knows how that actually worked I would appreciate it) This whole scene sort of reminded me of the Gears of War 3 (SPOILERS FOR GOW3)..... campaign when Dom dies they tried hard to get me to care and didn't allow it to happen naturally and it just ended up being stupid (at least they didn't play Madworld in Halo 4) Also the whole we have to find Halsey part of it didn't particularly need to be there in the end they should have thought of something else in my opinion. If you have read the books then you would already realise how nearly impossible it would be to find her and that where she is being kept is completely over John's head. So at first I didn't think we would find her at all. But then we ended up going to the base Halsey was held in and I sort of got excited thinking this is it but she is no where to be seen!! The only way you can tell she was there is the intel you find in the hunter room and that it was the same research facility mentioned in the books. (If I missed something that actually pieces this together then please tell me lol) Okay last bit sorry for the long post :P I just wanted to make sure people know that I do like Cortana I just have some trouble with how she was portrayed in this game. So I ask everyone here am I the only one who thinks this way and if so.... my bad but I just wanted to know whether I'm alone and a heartless person or whether people agree.
