    The best way to do this is solo with skulls on. The skulls make the game much less hostile and allow you to fare better. While co-op is good because it allows you to split your attention to different areas, such as base management and attack and defense, playing on solo gives you an invaluble component in the save game feature. If you are doing well in a mission you can save so that it all goes to hell, you can reload and try again instead of starting over.
    As far as strategy goes I would just recommend to build fast, defend your base and don't attack until your force is strong enough to both attack and possibly defend if the situation presents itself.

    I did this co-op, with skulls on. The advantage of co-op is one of you can be incharge of the base and the other guy concentrate on doing objectives, you can keep building units and transferring them to the other person, the Hunters can be a real pain so on missions where you can, use Hornets if not I'd use Flamethrower men to take out the Hunters, plus you can both use heal and Mac at the same time. If you need any advice/help on a mission, send me a message and I'll try and help :o)

    A handy tip for Mission 5: Arcadia Outskirts.

    Turn on the skull that gives a 5% chance for non-player units to explode. It can easily wipe out a grouping of infantry in the early part of the mission, which is a godsend considering the sheer numbers that get thrown at you. I had the Spartan Laser using guy garrisoned in the overturned Warthog to the side of the broken down highway by the crater. He would laser a group and the explosion would take out 2-3 separate squads.

    Once Omega Team shows up, the mission is essentially done. Take out the remaining attackers, head on over to the Mega Turret, build the second base and get some Vultures to take out the Covenant base.

    Of course, the problem is surviving to get to the point where Omega Team shows up. I can't believe that both this Mission and Mission 4 made it through QA.
