Pixel Dynamo takes a look at an hour of Halo 5 multiplayer beta, and wonders whether the series might be taking a turn from its roots.
All I know is that I haven't been this excited for Halo since before Halo 3 came out. I'm really loving that 343 has shown what Halo should look and play like in 2015. It shows evolution to the existing formula but stays true to the roots. In my opinion this is the direction it should take and that 343 is doing a stellar job.
I don't mind sprint, in fact I welcome it. Playing the old Halo's just felt slow and sluggish. I mean in all honesty why wouldn't a marine know how to sprint?
Probably because he's weighed down by armour that weighs as much as a tank. Or Gabe Newell.
The heavy armor hasn't stopped him from being able to jump 8ft into the air like it's nothing, or flip armored jeeps like tonka toys. There's really no reason he shouldn't be able to Sprint. As long as it and the other Spartan abilities are balanced well all will be fine..
Yeah no I agree with the sprint mechanic. I was just making a joke...a very bad one at that. I'll grab my coat...
All I have to say is that this looks glorious. The Halo 2 diehards probably aren't going to like it but who cares. Glorious! I cannot wait. Day One.
Well pros like Snip3down, Tsquared, Bravo, and Ghostayame all said that it feels great and plays at times even more competitively than Halo 3 so I don't think the old timers (myself included) will knock it. It takes the best elements from past Halo's and combines them into Halo 5. I'm very confident that this will be the next Halo that in 5 years people will say, "Remember the Halo 5 days?"
It looks like halo to me. It looks like alot of fun, I like the new sound fx.
I wonder if left some destiny ideas laying around when they left. The super air to ground punch screams titan, the team standing there then striking a pose before the match starts. Even though I'm not playing it, looks like it would feel like destiny. But destiny does not feel like halo. It's not a bad thing at all. Game looks fun. I'm glad there's a dash because playing MCC the few times I have (Damn 343) it feels dated as hell without it. I wonder if there will be outdoor environments also or will it all be this way in the multiplayer. Please turn down the auto aim some tough. Reticle is glued to people at times. That is a halo mainstay that has to go. Hope there's some radarless modes too. (Update) I see the no radar mode. That's where I will be.
This guy is beating some ass in this. I'll be on day one. The improved maneuverability is definitely something I'm looking forward to.
Awsome one , i cant wait for it :)
This just looks like last gen halo to me!.
I hope they make a bundle with this game for $400
This looks incredibly fun, doubt I'll be as good as this dude though
