The Halo series has always been iconic; from its sound track and scenery to its energy swords and vehicles. Everything about it has always been recognizable, none more so than the series main protagonist, ‘Master Chief.’ With 343 Studios taking up the gauntlet from Bungie, they were met with controversy. How does one take such a huge series like Halo, mindful of its massive fanbase and develop something fresh, while maintaining the elements which have gained so much popularity. With increased pressure from fans in general, seemingly more so since the infamous ‘hold the line’ movement following the Mass Effect 3 controversy, a lot was expected from 343. They have not disappointed. In fact, they have managed to give us exactly what the community wanted and a little more. An impressive feat, given the circumstances.
