Actually, the armor is powered by a mini-nuclear reactor essentially. Were a typical human to wear it, it is responsive enough such that a slight twitch of the finger is enough to cause the suit to move fast and forcefully enough to rip the arm out of its socket or shatter bones. The resulting convulsions causes this to continue until the person is a twisted mass of crushed bones and organs.

So yea, it compensates.

While being a valid point, it is POWER armour, its not like its just a dead weight. Plus its powered by some sort of nuclear reactor if I'm correct. The armour enhances all of their abilities, even their speed (The spartans are the only one who can use the suits without shattering their limbs because of the neural speed required to operate one)

I read too much lore.

John beat two ************ ODSTs within an inch of their lives as part of his workout routine. Even without the suits, the Spartans were a force not to be ****** with. The Mjolnir armor does some of the work, but it's still just amplifying 130 kg of rock-hard muscle, Wolverine bones and whoop-ass. And John wasn't even the strong one. One of them (either Fred or Sam) was a full head taller than most of the Spartans. I imagine he could probably bench a Scorpion.

You do realize he can LIFT more than a ton, run at something like 25 MPH without the suit.

The suit also enhances body functions.

Let's put it this way, it was so much, they had the suit on someone without the genetic modifications that chief had. The guy moved his arm, it broke so fast it caused several spams that splintered the guy and killed him.

Only a spartan can wear the suits, because only they have been genetically modified enough to use them without dying.

Don't the suits also go really ******* fast? Like the chief normally has to wait for marines to catch up when he's with them? Unless you play the games, then you're slow as ****. The books state they run faster then marines even in the 1,000 pound armour.

He could also run at like. 60 in his suit for pretty much ever.

I think it was Blue Team, so it was John, Fred, Linda, Kelly and maybe one or two more of them. I can't remember which book it was. I also think it was the first time they had fought brutes, so it's more of an anecdotal example.
Also, you probably already know this, but the Spartan III's are weaker than the Spartan II's. The 2's where the super badass proof of concept, the 3's were the toned down expendable production model. One of the books describes an entire company of 3's getting sacrificed to take out a Covenant generator.

Spartan 3's are significantly weaker than 2's.

2's are the strongest. Examples are Kelly, Chief, etc etc. 2's could take on a brute in regular G's, and in 0G are weaker, only roughly on terms with an elite.

1's are the weakest. Example being Sgt Johnson. They can beat the **** out of the average schmuck, but in the end are trounced severely by the elites.

3's are the happy medium. They are a match against a single elite, on a good day.

Let's see, a Spartan normally runs at about 6.8 m/s for hours on end. The fastest record sprint is 12.4 m/s over 100m. The average human sprints at about 7.8 m/s and can maintain that for 50m maybe, trained sprinters reaching maybe 9-10 m/s. Considering the Spartans move with a jogging pace, these guys are almost out sprinting you without even trying to begin with. The books claimed that a Spartan pulled 55 km/h up a hill which is roughly  16 m/s.   
   
Not arguing anything, I just find the Halo lore interesting.

The games (at least CE, 2, 3, ODST) don't have a run/walk dynamic because I suppose they didn't want a high-tension combat feeling like COD had (sprint, scan shoot, relaod, repeat). Would've been interesting if they did that though!

BUT, i find the lore plausible - the idea is that the MJOLNIR armor had a high-efficiency micro-sized fusion reactor (the bulky backpack portion), and actuators throughout the armor that did most of the cool, inhuman ****. (55MPH sprint, punching through an Elites' head, jumping over Hunters, etc)

On top of that, Spartans received treatments that made them all hulks - that combined with their childhood training made them all Olympic+ level athletes.

tl:dr - from a Realisitc-Sci-Fi point of view, i think it's plausible.

Well the games are kind of forced to cater to the fact that if the character on screen were able to move at it's potential the player wouldn't be able to keep up. Still could go faster before that becomes an issue though.

Oh, lord, that's another thing that annoyed the hell out of me. The Spartans are these super-strong, super-fast people in armour powered by individual nuclear reactors, and nobody things that, maybe, just maybe, the guy capable of tossing around Warthogs and jumping several metres in the air would benefit from some kind of melee weapon?

I mean, ****, it's not like it's impractical. Several enemy types - high-ranking ones at that - either integrate melee weapons into their arsenal or use them exclusively. Just reverse engineer a plasma sword, or a gravity hammer; you've fought enough people with them to capture at least ONE.

Hell, it doesn't even have to be that. It could just be a super-dense, plasma-resistant length of metal that the Spartans swing around for melee attacks instead of hitting things with their guns. Which, by the way, are pretty damn fragile, since they were designed to be used by a regular guy instead of effing Master Chief.

[/rant]

Never a fan of the Halo games, honestly, and glaring, easily fixed errors between lore and gameplay are one of the reasons why.

Agreed, solo legendary on Cortana, Just. *******. Run. For. It. Don't look back, don't get distracted, look straight ahead, and use your shotgun to make a hole large enough to get through, and just keep running. Thats how i did it anyway and never again did I go through that after getting the achievement XD
