OnlySP: Microsoft’s legendary Halo franchise returns, but will you? After Bungie lost Halo to 343 Industries, fans became skeptical of the new developer’s capabilities. Halo: Reach, the last Bungie developed Halo game was greeted with negative feedback, claiming it lacked individuality; some missions were practically identical to the first games’. Then Halo 4 was released, which had creative weaponry, new enemies, and beautiful visuals, but the story, while good, was paired with an average campaign. Mixed feedback aside, 343 Industries is shooting for the moon with Halo 5: Guardians. There’s a strong focus on bringing the gameplay back to the original titles, while the narrative is meant to be the darkest in the series. The question is: with such a large franchise are we only excited for the name, or for the gameplay? Let’s find out.
