EB's Matt Heywood writes, "When Halo: The Master Chief Collection was first announced at E3 2014, the legions of Halo fans that have been built up over the past thirteen years let out a collective "F*ck Yeah!" to showcase their excitement for its November 11, 2014 release. The thought of having all four proper Halo games on one disc with updated visuals, sound, and in the case of Halo 2 Anniversary, brand new cutting edge cinematics, almost felt like a pipe dream, but 343 Industries has pulled it off in one value based $60 game disc. For all intents and purposes, this collection could have simply been titled, 'Halo: The Holy Nostalgia Experience', because it truly does take you back in time and evokes memories of years past playing frantic Halo multiplayer matches and the franchise's stellar campaigns with friends. The value alone makes this collection a must-own for the Xbox One, but it's the polish and upgrades that may propel it to Game of the Year status."
