The pay-to-win element was addressed in the review, but given how it has been implemented, it's really hard to quantify the impact it has on the experience from player to player. My experience was that it was a bit convoluted and obviously it would have been better without it, but I still had fun. The truth is we talked long and hard over this particular score (more so than usual), and it was the subject of much debate among the team. If it weren't for the lacklust...
Sorry to hear you didn't like the review. It scored an 8/10 because we had a lot of fun with the multiplayer, and after several hours of playing, we hadn't noticed any significant impact to our own experience based on the loot system. It's convoluted and the game would have been better without it, sure, but we still enjoyed playing. The story campaign, and the question mark over the loot system, held it back in our opinion, and that's reflected in the review.

The reviewer still had an excellent time with the game, and as he said in the text he liked it so much that it might possibly have received 10/10 had he not encountered technical issues in the PS4 version.
It is definitely coming to PS4.
"Of course Halo: The Master Chief Collection has moments where it's brilliant, and if you've a hankering to play the single-player content, we absolutely have no problems recommending that you pick it up. But if multiplayer is your jam, it's impossible to give it any kind of positive endorsement, even three months after launch."
I agree, and say as much in the article, however, this is about the multiplayer side of MCC, not the single-player element.
It did mention that, albeit briefly. That content is now back in the rotation, so progress can resume as before.
Can't wait for this one. Be nice to drag a few of the old Halo crew up a generation too.
I looked for a search functionality, but couldn't find it.
That was mentioned because those who pick up an Xbox One Day One Edition will also get a game included. It just closes the distance between the gap in value between the two consoles.
