To be honest, I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others but it fills in the gaps and provides an array of new information. What are your thoughts?
The Spartans are dropping like flies.
they get killed to easy. though their mission (i forget the name) was against like 50x the amount of enemies all at once. so, they did decent, and if i remember, they halted covenant progress. You also have to remember though that Master Chief is incredibly veterened, and he also is alot older than those other spartans. Also, most spartans IIs are dead, only a handful are left, but they all died on separate missions, not all at once where the odds, even while together, were incredibly unbalanced. but, thats is a spartans duty: facing the impossible. their main duty too is also to give the UNSC time, a big issue in the war as humans are technologically inferior and suffer in numbers.
SPARTAN-IIIs are meant to be disposable, they weren't trained nearly as much as SPARTAN-IIs and their augmentations are almost nonexistent.
True, though they are far more capable than ODSTs.
Well, SPARTANs remain more capable than anyone else, though ODSTs follow closely
Yeah, the ODSTs also have armor of thier own that can even work in space which is easily better than standard marine armor.
Yeah. Even SPARTANs used ODST battle suit for their first mission, which must mean it's a decent piece of armour. Marines hardly have anything.
Just a few plates of metal.
