I don't think Halo is more complicated beyond "stick with your teammates and aim for the head." It is slower and you do need to learn weapon placements but it's not like that is hard, you learn it from playing. The learning curve is far less than, for example, Team Fortress 2 or BF3.
Well I wasn't saying it was rocket science
just it's different. COD is (IMHO) easier - just spray & pray (any hit is a good hit). But then I'm the odd one - I liked Reach and CE best.
I do like "stick with your teammates & aim for the head"
Also be one with the DMR.

Looking forward to some multiplayer matches.
Well that's a long......long story. You can read the entire history here http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page
. You can go into Halo Waypoint on xbox & get various details such as weapons, races, and vehicles = a decent overview. There's also a walkthrough of Halo CE Anniversary done by "PaulB0991" on youtube. He's very (as in I don't want to go upagainst him
) good, the walkthrough gives you a good overview of strategy & weapon usage (you can see how he deals with various enemy classes) His youtube channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/PaulB0991?feature=watch
And if you're going to play the campaign learn the "noob combo"
