Halo 4 Spartan Ops Episode 9 trailer

Hire new writers for the second series, or just make CGI cut scenes, the missions have been consistently dire throughout.

I disagree. Since the last 2 chapters of Episode 3, I've found them a blast. The plot took an upturn with the appearance of Jul M'dama too.

Yeah, I enjoyed the last couple of missions too. I wonder if it's simply because of the new maps though and come the end of the season I'll be a bit bored again.

I felt exactly the same way, but honestly, for me - it fell flat after you wander around the same level for the 4th time after

I agree that the stage/enemy variety was lacking, especially on the enclosed, smaller play areas. Because of that, Spartan Ops wasn't as awesome as I'd thought it would be. It came into its own when it opened up and they threw Banshees/Phantoms/Mantis in the mix. If they can address the variety (bring back The Flood!) issues, it could become a great addition to the franchise.

I think, and this is a large assumption, that we wil not get to see a second series of Spartan Ops. As you think how long it would take to create the cut scenes, levels etc - we still haven't heard anything more, apart from Frank suggesting a 2nd series is linked to uptake.

I just think it could of been so much better. Get rid of the cliched FT Majestic, who for all intent and purpose are more wooden than the Oak Furniture Store's contents.
