Reviews for The Cost of Victory
Electromotive Force chapter 1 . 4/6/2012
I always visit a story or one-shot whose synopsis features this sort of theme. It's not an easy thing to do, giving Spartans depth. The greats like Nylund did it masterfully, but still to this day there's not a lot of human emotion built into these characters, given what they go through and why they exist in the first place. Bungie/343 has made incremental progress over the years and games.

It's an introspective piece, sure, which most people might shy away from especially since it's almost counter-intuitive to how the video games usually portray Spartans-tough, calculating, stoic. Now a days, I enjoy the works that take on a little risk. The payout is big if done right, and not overdone. I think this is one such work. You also created another one a good while back called Comprehension and I enjoyed that one too. Good work!

Keep doing what you do.
