Review: Halo The Master Chief Collection is the best excuse to buy an Xbox One yet - CVG

First-person shooters have covered an immense amount of ground since 2001. Can the old guard still cut the mustard? When you pick up a copy of TMCC for yourself - and let's get this out there front and centre, if you've got an Xbox One sitting under your goggle box you'd be mad not to - just where should you begin?

Thought it contains Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4. And CVG played all this games within a few hours to write this review?

Definitely deserves 10/10. While each game certainly isn't perfect, the package you are getting is.

You must be a Halo fanboy..
But you are correct about the package

Crazay1531d ago

I've had the game for over 2 weeks. It's not out of the realm of possibility that they burned through the campaigns already by now.

DJustinUNCHAIND1531d ago

No excuse needed. Xbox one has a killer holiday line up with a lot of variety.

Don't let the haters fool you.

HeMan761531d ago

XO is the best console for this holiday season and the next one seems so bright!

Letros1531d ago

Yea, from a PC gamer, Xbox is the place to be this holiday, love me some Halo.

I don't care how good it is, nothing will beat the thrill of grinding through Sunset City!!!!! #OverdriveGOTY
P.S. Maybe GOTY is a little much, but I haven't had this much fun all year!

How bungie has fallen and Insomniac has risen from the ashes.

Not that thats my take on it....

Bungie where ok in my books, but insomniac always delivered , across many different styles of IP.

Hopefully , now people get how good insomniac are as developers.

I really suggest you play all their previous titles.... (FUSE Excluded)

BOT: QB & MCC is the reason I'm considering a Xbone.

i thought it was because of sunset overdrive?? /s

anyway i have never played any halo game in my life, ill try this title to give me an idea why it is so beloved

TheArkatek1531d ago

Why is there even a need to re-review these games ?? There are the exact same games from 10-8-6-4-2 years ago with better graphics.

danowat1531d ago

They aren't the exact same games then are they......

meganick1531d ago

So potential buyers can read about the quality of the ports.

jrshankill1531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

Some newcomers have never experienced Halo... and this is the best possible excuse to. The value alone makes it a great purchase.

donthate1531d ago

The same game didn't have dedicated servers and running buttery smooth 60 fps.

Lawboy21531d ago

Same reason they reviewed TLOU when it came out the year before

Septic1531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

They aren't the exact same games are they? Could you ever do co-op online in Halo: CE? Could you do online MP? Could you play maps on Xbox that were only available on PC?

Halo 2- could you play the campaign online in co-op?

Could you play all these games at 60fps. FPS doesn't matter now?

brich2331531d ago

They are not the same, they have remastered audio and graphics, and the graphics switch and every multiplayer map on 1 disc with dedicated servers and 1080p @ 60fps and, I'm sure there is more.
