Forbes: "Here’s the thing about Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It’s somewhat obvious, and yet it bears repeating. This is a single retail release containing both the single and multiplayer versions of the four of the most critically acclaimed console shooters of all time. Every game comes with a complete graphical overhaul and new cutscenes. It’s the sort of game that’s best reviewed with this fairly basic description: this is what it is, this is what you get, and this is not a hard decision. Buy it."
