      What? I always thought that Jun was Arabian, the planet he comes from, New Harmony, was primarily colonized by Arabic people.

                  To answer your question about who was on Noble team before Noble 6, it was a Spartan named Thom-A293 and you see him die in the trailer Deliver hope when he gets the nuke onto the Covenant Battlecruiser. I think it's fitting that we don't know too much about him other than what we see in the trailer because it gives a bit of back story for Noble team while also setting the stage for the player, Noble 6, to join in as the new guy.

                          The last good halo was reach which was made in 2011, its 2019 now. Let that sink in

                                I think borderlands 2 is a setting driven story...I thiiink, the plot of the game is to stop handsome jack from opening the vault and killing everything that isn't Hyperion

                                  What i like to think is that 6 survived some how and is just some where with noble teams dogtags in a box, s/he looks at sometime to remember that they were the best team s/he has ever had, plus they left the helmet because its a symbol of hope for the people of and the UNSC but also him/her leaving their past

                                      I think the characters are well made, which is why I dislike some and like others. As a whole, I do not enjoy the plot but the gameplay itself feels good.
                                      If Reach HAD followed the novelizations, the game could have been amazing, not just above average.

                                                As a game student now the stuff I'm making 9 YEARS in the future sucks compared to the astounding modeling and textures that look good even today. Not many games made in that time would have the honor of such technical and intricate designs. The Bungie team always surpasses the good enough into the realm of legendary.

                                                      Actman the only thing in this review that made me cringe was when you sead : Reach wants to make the Player feel small
                                                      I never feel small as master chief XD

The war was for the place they called home. They didn't have much time to think about their own personal agendas and ambitions. They had no time to be who they were behind the armor. They were Spartans, and they died as Spartans. They simply had no time to waste, even if they were already to late.
