A- or B+
Gameplay -- I wouldn't call it innovative, but for me it captured the same fun, dynamic gameplay as Halo.
Story -- haven't seen enough to judge, but given what we know and what was in the Beta, looking forward to it.
Graphics -- looked excellent on my 360 and will look even better on the X1
Music -- perfect as always; dampened by it being Marty's last work with Bungie
Multiplayer -- hit-and-miss; the player-filled Explore was awesome, but lack of any meaningful communication really hurt it. PvP was a mess; needs serious weapon adjustments and larger games than 6v6 (I'll say again: [b]Big. Team. Battle.[/b])
