GI goes for the average on its Halo review
Pretty good review from Game Informer.. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Playing Warzone is so much fun. I've always been an 4v4 fan and love Arena.... But Spartan Abilities plus the beast pistol has made Warzone a fav. The sandbox team should be very proud.
LOL GameInformer and their annoying decimals. Just give the game a damn 9/10. What does the .75 even means??
They've been using a 40 point scale for the longest.
Good Review overall
My thoughts are.... Campaign is the worst in the series. MP is the best however.
The Campaign is epic, I'm loving every frigging minute!!!
Love the campaign but we don't have to prove anything to anyone. If its not for you its not for you.
I didn't like the campaign at all. I'm a huge halo fan but this campaign just felt like a kick in the nuts. I didn't like Locke at all. His character wasn't flushed out and he had no personal connection to the plot like chief. The campaign should have focused on chief and how he is feeling about what's happening and blue is there to give an explanation as they've known him since childhood. The banter between them and seeing some actually CARE and SUPPORT chief as a friend the way cortana did in 4 would have been incredible but instead 343 wanted to make a new character and put chief on the back burner. It honestly feels like they just focused on the multiplayer, which is probably the best MP I've played all year.
People giving you disagree don't understand until they play it. I played it an thought the same thing as you. Halo 5 is the best in terms of level design, but the worst campaign in the series. After replaying Halo 3 and 4 on the Master Chief Collection, my expectations for Halo 5 were very high, and man was I disappointed! All those ads was lies. No it's not the greatest hunt in history, especially for a cheesy fight scene of Chief and Locke that was an epic failure. No there are 12 missions not 15 missions, because 3 missions are just hubs to talk to 2 npcs that it!!! Then there is the repetitive same boss fight for like 5 damn times! The multiplayer is the best in the series though.
Setting up an amazing Saga with that ending but you call it the worst. I feel you played it on Easy/Normal and rushed through it.
I agree lacked storytelling, and personally I love the huge battles like in 3 and there were pretty much zero of those. It just just felt more linear than sandbox.
After reading the reviews but before playing the game, I was thinking the campaign story would suck. But after playing for myself (currently on the last mission)... the story is great. And there is an epic fight a couple missions before that left my jaw on the floor. Masterchief is a beast!!!!
I literally had to pause the game for a minute when that one wicked gravity sequence was happening. That was probably one of the best moments I've ever experienced in any Halo game. While the story itself may be divisive, the campaign itself (gameplay, level design, combat, etc.) was pretty badass, imo.
Yes. That part was epic. I couldn't believe it either. Super original idea. And it was beautiful to look at
That fight is really tricky on Legendary.
I must admit playing as Master Chief for only a few missions is sought of a let down but none the less I'm really enjoying Halo 5!
Not finished the story yet, I think I just finished mission 6 and loving it so far, some truly memorable locations, lovely cutscenes and the weapons and gunplay/core loop is as solid as ever. Only real complaints are I would have loved a slightly wider FOV and remove those damn black helmet parts of the HUD, they cover too much of the screen when playing as Locke.
I'm enjoying the game quite a bit. The sound design is top notch.
I don't see how these reviewers have trouble understanding the story, if you've played halo 4 you will understand halo 5. If it's about the characters in blue team and osiris they explain everything while playing the game. Here's a tip for anyone playing the game, before finishing the mission wait and you will hear the spartans talk about the past. Buck even mentions what Veronica is up to, you know the girl wearing the recon armor in ODST. The only thing I don't like is who the new villan is, but that doesn't make it a bad story. I'm keen to see where they take it, and with that legendary ending it looks very promising. My score would easily be 9.5/10 EDIT: I would also prefer to be the Masterchief more.
I hear the campaign's actually pretty disappointing from most, but the multiplayer seems to be boss. And that's just dandy after the Master Chief Collection fiasco.
The campaign is very good and has some awesome plot moments and mission design but you can't shake the feeling its all a little rushed.
Easily the best gameplay of any fps I've played this generation, and probably the last. It's so smooth, fast paced and downright fun!
@Immorals Absolutely agree. Thought the gameplay was gonna be awesome after the beta and I'm not dissapointed. It's gonna take something extra special to top this!!!
I'll agree on that with the multiplayer. Best MP so far this generation. Campaign was lacklustre in the story department. Don't be putting chief on the back burner. Especially since the story pretty much revolves around him. Would have been more interesting to see his emotions through well written banter between blue team.
Loving this game. Everything about it. Thanks to 343 to making the best Halo to date imo.
