Señores 343 Industries cordial saludo desde Colombia, primero que todo quiero que sepan que soy gran fanático de la saga de halo y todo lo relacionado con este, me gusta mucho su trabajo y todo lo que han hecho con esta gran franquicia desde halo 3, reach y 4, sin embargo halo 2 fue la puerta a la gloria de esta  franquicia  y aun lo sigue siendo, pero no me estoy contradiciendo como dije anteriormente hicieron un trabajo excelente con esta franquicia pero la pregunta seria porque cambiar tanto este gran juego no hablo de los personajes o la historia del juego hablo de la jugabilidad de esos detalles como los super saltos, dobles ráfagas con el rifle de batalla y todas estas cosas que hacían que este juego  fuera diferente a los demás y no uno mas del montón como lo noto ahora en halo 3, reach y 4? me gustaría que volvieran a las viejas raíces a lo que hizo este juego tan famoso y exitoso!, quisiera ver un halo 2 modificado con una nueva historia gráficas increíbles pero sin cambiar su esencia y  jugabilidad en halo 5. Les hablo de un lugar en donde todavía se juega halo 2, gracias por su atención prestada BYE


This is rly cool I'm going to buy this when it comes out.
