"Halo MCC is a good game almost sunk by its technical inadequacies, which have certainly blotted 343 and MS’s copybook. " The Marb from GameOnDaily reviews Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Pfft Gameondaily hypocrisy. Didn't see them marking Driveclub down for online issues, but they just can't help themselves when it's a microsoft title.
Halo: TMCC was supposed to be a celebraton of all things Halo. This was supposed to be this generation's Orange Box. 343 just simply could not afford to mess this up. Like the article says: "Halo MCC is a good game almost sunk by its technical inadequacies, which have certainly blotted 343 and MS’s copybook. " These issues have done irreparable damage to the game's legacy and community. Its a stain on an otherwise amazing package. I would distinguish this from DC, with the latter being a newer IP with far less expectations. Halo is Xbox. Xbox is Halo and Halo: TMCC being broken is a problem.
Also, Driveclub has faster cars and better weather effects. But Halo's AI are better at driving.
@Volkama Ahahaha LMFAO! + Bubs x 9000
99 problems on the XBOX One but Halo ain't one... Naw, naw, that's terrible
They gave Driveclub a 7. From that review. "I must caveat this part of the review to say that Driveclub has endured a rocky launch, and online play has rarely been available to play."
I've pretty much given up on MCC. Ball dropped. Someone at 343 will be fired over this. It's a massive black eye to MS's biggest franchise and system seller. If it affect sales, MS could lose millions. But I wait to see what they're going to do to "make things right" as they promised. That Halo 5 beta had better be incredible.
Works great for me!
Games working MUCH better after last night. It was working good before but last night I was getting games in like 30seconds and nearly every game had even teams. Probably played 15-20 games last night
After last nights update i have been able to get into BALANCED games in almost less than a min. Seems to me thst most of the problems are going away but for ME one MAJOR problem still exist...WHERE IS HALO 4!!!!!
Yeah. Absolutely true. I enjoyed Halo 4 MP and having it at 1080p 60 fps is great but there is no point if it's not unlocked for matchmaking. And that is something I don't get: why are there no bots? Halo is known for its AI and in a case like this would be great.
I've been playing just fine since i bought it. I dont know how much of this isn't just being overblown
...by MS detractors, on N4GAF? Say it ain't so!
I just got an xbox one MCC bundle over Black Friday. Have been playing through halo 1 campaign, 4 levels in....and have really enjoyed replaying my childhood. Haven't had any issues yet.
I bought the game for the campaigns as I hadn't played halo 1-4 before, its really amazing to get to play something that old but which plays and looks so good. Have fun.
I played plenty of the multiplayer with the original games. I'm mainly doing MCC to re-experience the campaign.
Severely disappointed with the ongoing issues with the MCC. Hope they compensate us some how it's soooo annoying trying to play online. :(
I've been experiencing some issues which are seriously frustrating... just right now i lost so much progress in the halo 2 campaign and i have not been able to find a match yet since day one... But i'm confident these issues will be sorted out soon for me, it seems some people have matchmaking problems and some dont
Still broken? Thought it was fixed? Seems all the publishers are rushing stuff out the door unready, or not making provision for mass adoption. Since the dawn of console internet connectivity devs have gotten lazier, and a lot of publishers have gotten lacklustre! Behind every needs-a-fix Patch 1.01 /1.02 /1.03 ....is a greedy publisher ;/
Got into 5 matches under 30 seconds, I would say the issues have resolved. Incredibly pumped to start playing consistently again.
