We Played the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta | IGN

A level playing field. Smart Scope. Sprinting. Strafing. Charging. Ground-pounding. The stabilizer. Midship. The Prophets’ Bane. Breakout mode. My first taste of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta was filled with fascination, but these are the things I enjoyed the most. This is clearly a new Halo for a new era, but in many ways it also feels like an evolved Halo 2. And that’s a good thing.

The story is too old to be commented.

They really don't.

It LOOKS fantastic. Gameplay looks like amazing fun too. Why bash on someone saying they enjoyed it?

"60fps pretty sure that final version will be 1080p as well!"

Lol, stop. Just no.

The visuals of Halo 3 beta looked fairly crap.
Bungie just wanted to trial the game mechanics, not demonstrate how good it looked.
They added all the visual glory later on.

Same is happening here I bet.

Oh yay, they're copying COD again. Jesus christ 343 learned nothing from Halo 4 :(

For the ridiculous on N4G, Halo 5 is finally going back to its roots as an arena shooter, the sprinting, boost jumps, ground pounds and so on do nothing to damage the game in the least as an arena shooter, no. What's really hindered Halo as an arena MP shooter is when they started giving doing preset weapons/gear customization. Instead of placing the power weapons at various points in the map like they did in Halo 2/3, they had load outs and ordinance drops. That's the factor that was most like the CoD franchise and what truly stepped in the way of the game feeling like a true Halo experience. But 343i, possibly through re-mastering the series, have learned from their mistake and they've re-introduced this classic style back into Halo 5. Regardless of the extra abilities everyone will have, the arena style Halo MP we all grew to love is back.

The funny thing is if you look at the comment history of the guys talking smack about notice they were the same ones showing up in halo:MCC, SSO, FH2 and any threads that involves titanfall...talking the same smack...coincidence?
