When an original game becomes a hit, it can be difficult to re-configure its secret sauce into an equally enjoyable sequel.
So much hyperbole.
Would you say absolutely horrible hyperbole? :D
Halo 5?....pffft to each his own but Halo 5 is a great game, every Xbox owner I know enjoyed it, the campaign was nice I like the teamwork concept and the multiplayer keeps 'em coming back with great gameplay & modes so much content, 343 did a helluva job.
@4Show: Uh... going to assume that's a comment intended for someone else.
Not Halo 5. It had a bad story COMPARED to past games but it didn't have a bad story overall. The gameplay was top notch, and multiplayer is still one of the best on the market right now. Custom games browser is the single greatest thing 343 did which I'm grateful for.
Nah it really was a bad campaign. MP was great but seriously, that was a hugely terrible story mode.
The story maybe, but some of the missions were extremely fun. The Sangehlios ones are right up there with the best missions in the franchise.
Halos mp was great but became boring quicker than most. The story. Naw that was bad and it's marketing was a lie. Made it seem like old master chief was gunna fight that new fake master chief but the conflict ended up being a one punch cgi sequence. Not to mention fighting the same boss over and over and over....plus add the no split screen mp and whala! You got the worst canon halo ever made
Compared to Halo 4, Halo 5's story was trash and not memorable at all.
That's not really saying much though cuz that was pretty bad as well.
Agreed on sanghelios. That was one of the very few times it actually felt like halo.
And another article with 15 items from this website *shakes head*
Halo 5, FarCry 2, Dragon Age 2, Nuts and Bolts, and Gears of War: Judgement were all far from bad games. Hell, even Crackdown 2 was pretty fun. There's a difference between a lesser sequel, and a bad game.
With a Title that says "horrible sequels", most of these are far from that. Better title should be disappointing sequels. But I'm sure they went with the former to get clicks and bring in the fanboys.
I know! I know! The xbox 360 had a terrible sequel!.... Oh! you are not talking consoles, just games...
