Halo 5: Guardians Review in Progress – Full Campaign Impressions

Richard Bailey Jr. of The Koalition writes:
When the Xbox One launched roughly two years ago, Microsoft’s all-in-one console did so without a brand new Halo game to generate interest and increase hardware sales. Notable exclusives like Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 went on to strengthen the brand’s holiday 2014 lineup, while Halo: The Master Chief Collection suffered a wide array of technical issues and made fans weary of the franchise’s future.

With the long-awaited retail release of Halo 5: Guardians, 343 Industries and Microsoft are aiming to erase the past and create one of the best Halo games ever made. Here are a few of my thoughts on the campaign and why this entry may or may not appeal to diehard fans of the series.

I need to cop an Xbox for this

Strictly from a story standpoint, I'd have to say the fact that Master Chief isn't utilized more is very disappointing. A first person shooter fan who is new to the series probably won't mind it, but I def expect Master Chief fans to be annoyed by this.

Master Chief is just a greater protagonist then Locke or any other in the spin offs, just the voice alone of Master Chief is so damn iconic.

Halo fans have been used to this for a while might I suggest @rbailey a play through of Halo Reach, Halo Odst and Halo 2. Overall you will see that introducing characters into the Halo world is a key element in giving you the Master Chief story line.

With the great sales, I was considering grabbing this and a console. I'll wait a bit.

Sounds like a game that can be skipped. Looks like 343 didn't exactly deliver.

This is purely for the campaign, and even then the vast majority of reviews say that it's very enjoyable despite its flaws. Halo 2 also had the same issues with the campaign, and it's still considered one of the best Halos in the series. Multiplayer is what truly makes this game, and every review that talks about it reiterates this point.

Hopefully the rumours of this coming to PC are true
