: As for your saying there feels like some non-linearity in the corridors and
: such ... that'll only last a few levels. Then it's a copy/paste fest
: through the end. As for the level names, it seems various sections of each
: level have section titles, but the second level overall is called Halo,
: just to make things ever so confusing!

Keyes at the very least is meant to be a reference to Sorry don't make it so. both have you returning to the very first alien ship and its hallways, a bunch of new stuff is tacked on, (or FUBAR in Halo's case due to Truth and Keyes bare only vague similarities to each other) the ships have crashed and taken damage and there's some mandatory coolant swimming. Except in Halo the coolant is the original green color, its harmless and you only sink the bottom like Ivo Robotnik in a swimming pool.

The Maw could be seen as a minor call-back to Begging for Mercy... as the engine room section has you blowing up fuel vents instead of ALU panels.

And the last level in Halo 3 is called "Halo" as well and it takes place in an unfinished version of the control center on the on a copy of the first ring.

To wrap my ramblings up for now; if you had a rocket launcher, you'd make someone pay, but tell me what you'd do if you had a super weapon... ;)
