HALO is back - and it's better than ever. 343 Industries have excelled themselves with the latest installment in the mega-selling Xbox franchise.
Damm! For this I'm a gamer!
Better than ever? Even Ryan Mcarthy from IGN is saying the -campaign- is the "worse in the series". And we all know he's a huge Halo fanboy.
That's what I'm finding strange about some of these reviews.
It's all about opinions and Ryan is entitled to his. If this guy likes the campaign then so be it. Everyone (including journalists) is entitled to his/her opinion. @Septic Lol. True. Its so confusing.I can't wait to try it out for myself.
Ryan said worst campaign ever. Best MP since Halo 2. Also, Eurogamer said the campaign is one of the best in the series Who do you chose to believe? I say, I choose myself.
@dragonddark, Ryan McCaffrey is a POS! Every XBOX Owner I know & listen to various podcasts can't stand Ryan McCaffrey. Ryan McCaffrey is an undercover super Sony fan & so is his site. Why didn't they say MGSV had the worst story in it? When it obviously did; and gave it a 10 anyway. We call Ryan McCaffrey "Shaggy from Scooby Doo". We take everything he says about XBOX ONE games with SALT! @Septic, I agree! I trust myself also! I'm glad this site gave Halo 5 Guardians a perfect score. Halo 5 shouldn't get lower than a 9.5 rating.
"Halo 5 shouldn't get lower than a 9.5 rating." Why not? It's not even close to masterpiece status or the best game this year, and it has a short, underwhelming campaign with underlying level design, AI issues, and last-gen visual inconsistencies. Considering that the campaigns are an important and pivotal part of any new Halo game, a 9.5 is absurd. I'm shocked we're seeing "perfect" scores like this. No wait, no I'm not. Why would I be? These are the critics that gave Microsoft a pass, and a fundamentally and unforgivably broken game (MCC) similar scores, when any other game from any other series on any other platform would not see a Metascore about 60, for such problems. And FYI, The Daily Star is one of the worst publications out there.
@DigitalRaptor Did you even play the game ? I'd say at least give it a try than tell us about your impression rather than talking about it
@dragonddark He may like the game but he is no expert on the lore. He constantly gets the lore wrong in his podcasts, plus in their livestream for halo 5 the other day, him and that Finneagen guy thought duel wielding wasn't in halo 3. Don't get me wrong I don't hate him but he is probably one of the least guys I would listen to regarding story.
Am I the only one who can't take perfect scores seriously? A perfect score would mean perfection, and such a game just doesn't exist.
