    Overview
    Spartan Strike takes places around the events of Halo 4, following the main character, an unidentified Spartan IV, as he undergoes combat simulations that initially take him back to The Battle of New Mombasa during Halo 2 (2552), leading up to The Battle of Installation 003 and The Battle of New Phoenix (2557). During these simulations he replaces the ODST squad and Headhunters that were actually there, fighting Covenant and Promethean forces with an arsenal of weapons, abilities and vehicles in order to save Earth and Humanity.

    Gameplay 24/30

    Spartan Strike, despite being short and having barely any replay value, is a fun-filled game for casual gamers and Halo fans alike, with some rather easy achievements thrown in to the mix.

    xstevezGood review, though you don't need the spoiler tags unless you thought it looked too long without them. You can also use an X1 controller to play the game, just need the usb cable.

    VahliyaThank you for the feedback, I just use the spoiler tags to clean it up a bit. I'll make sure to add that in now, thank you again :)

    RLB HypnoticI thought there were 30 missions. 6 missions each in A-E.
