    I'll buy it.

    It makes sense that 343 would get its feet wet with a remake before doing something completely new.

    Indeed, this means Halo: CE achievements and possibly more Waypoint unlocks.

    Wow, I have to say that I am surprised at how excited I am for this. Mostly because it makes me have hope that they will do the same for Halo 2 (please, please, please!), my favorite of all of them.

    I don't see why there would be a need to change it unless they felt the need to tweak continuity but saying they are leaving the original audio in makes major changes sound unlikely.

    Changing the controls makes seance to bring it into alignment with the Reach layout, also no more black/ white buttons.

    I hope they don't add multi-player because then they are going to have to look at weapon balancing that could sneak it's way back into the campaign. What I hope they do is like with ODST and pack in a Reach multi-player disk with any and all map packs and maybe some other fun little extras.

    But I'm excited to see a shiny new updated Silent Cartographer.

    I've seen people begging for a change to the Library already, in context it's really not as awful as people make out. Don't touch it. You can't reach the highs without experiencing the lows.

    while i hope they don't change the layout of the levels at all, i assume they would do some stuff... the outdoor parts for example.

    Campaign Co-op. The host plays as Master Chief. All guests play as marines without shields. If I remember correctly, you have marine squads around for most of the game, so it wouldn't be a stretch and also eliminate clone spartans / Master Chiefs.

    I support this idea as long as playing as a marine doesn't mean you'll be dying way more frequently then whoever's playing MC.

    I mean the only way I can see some amount of fairness is if you'd played as Chief with all guests playing ODSTs, who would be a bit weaker, but can still hold their own.
