As of late, the topic of rereleasing HD “remastered” games on Microsoft’s and Sony’s (and even Nintendo’s) new hardware has become quite commonplace, but is it really necessary? Somewhere out there, there’s a difference between remastering a decade-old game to pay homage to greatness and rereleasing an 11-month-old game in order to fatten your bottom line.
In general? No. But this ten year anniversary collection is a great fan service and a great value. It make a lot more sense than any of the recent remasters...
Well considering that you can't play Halo 2 MP or Halo CE MP (true online multiplayer, not maps in reach) then hell yes!
It's not all about the graphics. It's about that great gameplay we poured hours into years ago. And it will be interesting to see how it holds up today. Halo Anniversary on 360 stunned me. The gameplay was still great which means 12 years ago Halo CE was way way ahead of its time.
Yes! We are talking about one of the greatest values in video game history
Halo's 1-4 all on one disk, all with improvements, Halo 2 with a visual makeover and Halo 4 already looks on the level of some next gen games at 60 fps
100 multiplayer maps will provide countless hours to old and new fans
Halo party's with pizza and beer :)
As far as other remasters... If the game's original hasn't released recently I don't see it as a bad idea
I think Microsoft just smacked all the other remasters in the face. Four games on one disc, all with their own unique online multiplayer, PLUS the Halo 5 beta, PLUS all 1080p 60fps? I don't care who you are, that's great for any franchise collection and Halo just nailed it.
The question is never if it's "necessary" or not in these matters. Whether or not it's desired is the question, and that's up to personal opinion.
