My dad got me Halo 3 for my birthday, which is just as well because I don't think I would have bought it for myself.
I made the mistake of starting my solo game on Heroic. Ho boy... we're not in Kansas any more! This is not Halo 1 or 2. You see, his name may be spelled "Master Chief", but it's pronounced "Glass Cannon". I swear to god, it's ridiculous how little damage ye old MC can take. I haven't been killed by grunts (GRUNTS!) since my first half hour of playing Halo 1, way back in 2k3! And about halfway through Halo 1, I stopped wasting ammo on grunts and switched to melee only. Well, don't try that in Halo 3. You will be dead before you can draw a second breath. 95% of the time, you get a max of two hits in any combat situation. The first one completely destroys your shields, and the second one kills you. And what's this BS with only being able to carry two of each kind of grenade? Either I have 6 hardpoints on my armor or I don't, Bungie. There's no reason I shouldn't be able to carry 6 frags or 6 plasmas, according to personal whim.
