This match was amazing, it gave me the nostalgia of halo 2 MP except brought it into the next gen. There were so many changes I expected a broken shamble of a game, but it was the exact opposite. All of the implementations of the changes were impeccable. completely skipped halo 4 because I was terribly unimpressed, but 343 definitely took the right route this time around. Cannot wait to see how much better it is after they take into consideration player feedback in the beta.

Halo 5 is definitely on the top of my list now.

I have to say this looks really good. Fast paced Halo, count me in.

Yea, my expectations for halo games are really high, and this went above and beyond, for me at least. Soo happy it wasn't another halo 4 in term of MP. (Halo 4 campaign was pretty great though)

@augmented I was going to make a thought out response, but realized it wasn't worth wasting my time as you are clearly just trying to troll other into a reaction.

Looks like a bland cartoon version of CODAW tbh.

What an awesome night, Halo5 Beta looked fantastic, the gameplay was fluid and that match was great with the best players going head to head. The Nightfall series was very interesting. Now my Halo MCC preorder is ready to play so see you guys later I'm about to dive into the original Halo campaign after many, many years all over again. Dammm, X1 is on a huge roll! New Halo Achievements and background incoming :)

the 60 frames per second sure makes a difference.

Honestly looking at it as it's own independent game, it looks like fun but lets not get carried away, it looked absolutely nothing like halo 2

Reminds me a lot of halo 2 personally, and as someone who played hundreds of hours of halo 2 MP I think I have the right to an opinion on the matter. Didn't say you have to agree.

Obviously they are different games, but I can clearly see the life force of halo 2 MP shine through, and that is VERY important for me.

Well they've remade halo 2 just now. They can't be remaking halo 2 again next year. Halo 2 is amazing but it's a 10 year old game. We love saying oh make it like halo 2, but most of us don't know how the market works.

If they keep it the same the franchise isn't gonna go anywhere. They added dual wielding in halo 2 after halo 1 right? If they kept it the same the franchise would not have sustained itself for so long.

As long as there's balance this is perfectly fine to me. The problem with halo 4 wasn't the features they added, it was the load-outs and unlocks that took us away from the "even start" philosophy halo has had. And it looks like they've fixed that.

Instead of seeing the fun in playing, the first thing we do is try to look for similarities to Cod and immediately crucify the game. If I was a developer and I had to constantly worry about something I added looking like Cod or another game, I would be frustrated out of my mind.

Stop talking! Take my damn money!

Woohoo glad I picked up my Xbox One last weekend, impeccable timing for this. My Xbox One's only for exclusives but this and the other great exclusives like Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 will easily make my investment worthwhile!

Looks so good, holy cow.
