With Halo: Infinite on the horizon, it's time to look back at 343's most recent game, which many consider the worst in the series.
Am I the only one seeing the author associating black with bad?
Probably. Have you never heard "black sheep" or "every family has a black sheep?" (serious question, not trying to be an ass)
it’s an old expression dude......nothing more.
Don't even try to go that route dude. It's an old expression. Capish.
Taking it entirely literally for a second, I think black sheep look really cool.
The movie Black Sheep was really funny too!
Honestly I feel like the people who would connect something so obviously not meant to be racist to a racial issue have issues.
exactly. trying to find anything to label and be angry about it. that’s the whole problem today.
Black doesnt always have to associate with black people dude 🤦♂️
Is this a fake comment? I know it's probably just mistake, and there can be subtle racism in media, but it kind of makes a mockery of people criticising real racial issues.
I thought that was Craig?
I've replayed the MC collection co-op more times than I can count with friends. I've played Halo 5 campaign 3 times total, because it just isn't fun. They tried to make Halo more like COD and it backfired. The story was garbage too. Shame because Halo 4 campaign is amazing.
Halo 4 writing was awful too. 343i makes Chief talk WAY too much. In 1-3 he only spoke when he needed to, usually as few words as possible. That’s what made him so bad ass in the OG trilogy.
I like all of the Halo games. I play games for what they are, games. I have fun or I don't. I try not to look to deep into things. I really don't see what the issue is/was with the game but like I said, I'm a little different. I still play Mass Effect more than any of these new games.
5's story may be the worst of all Halo's but the multi-player is top 3 for me behind 2 and 3.
It's up there with 2 and 3 for me too. It's great.
I actually enjoyed the multiplayer a lot. The campaign on the other hand is definitely the worst in the series.
Can't possibly imagine why. The campaign was lengthy and varied (best in the franchise), the battle encounter between MC and Locke was on a level of epic proportions (over delivered) and the ending was entirely satisfying and left no loose ends.
Have you played the game? Are you being sarcastic? It's the shortest in the series, and the encounter was like a 1min drunken bar fight that just abruptly ends.
Is anyone surprised They tried to introduce a "343 Studios" character with Agent Locke so they could move on from Bungies already established Master Chief, it felt overall arrogant like how in Halo 4 they tried to change the established multiplayer Bungie had set up so it could be a "343" thing. They tried to make a series about Locke aswell, that's how much they were invested in it. You played this new uninteresting character for most of the game with his equally boring team, only Edward Buck stood out because he was in ODST and it's Nathan Fillion. They made a story that relied on you as a player to have read most of the novels and other forms of media to understand characters or plot points referenced. Even Blue Team were thrown in there and most people didn't understand their relationship with Chief, they expected us to know so they didn't really bother with character development or why we should care. They butchered Cortana, like fine, make her a villain for this game but at least end the game with her getting over her rampancy and setting her up so we'll have another Chief/Cortana adventure in the next game. Forced co-op team members, meaning if you are playing solo you have 3 AI team mates with you, not like the simple drop in / drop out co-op in past games which had no impact on the story. Having to write a story where 3 other players are around you all the time limits on what you can do, everything has to be co-op focused because they will always be with you,
Halo 5 is the reason my Xbox One S is just for watching 4K-Blu -Rays. I used to be a huge halo fan. I even played a lot of Halo 4.
And its rated T for teen because blue blood effects were too scary.
''The trailers pose the questions of “Why would Chief do this?” and “Why is Locke determined to bring him in?”. The anger and passion of both characters are felt and both are ruthless to each other. It makes Locke seem like a terrifying figure and Chief scarier than we’ve ever seen him. It even appears that the Chief is responsible for all the destruction around them. And the phrase “Hunt the Truth” implies a bigger narrative and mystery to hook fans. These are easily some of the best trailers I’ve ever seen. The marketing for this game was phenomenal, except it’s not advertising Halo 5.'' Truth. None of that was in Halo 5.
Only time will tell whether its a black sheep or it if it turns out to be a red headed step child of a game.
Halo 4 was worse. Halo 5 just should’ve been titled as a reboot.
Halo5 was great, I loved it so do many others. Its just cool to hate Halo for a certain crowd. Aside from COD no game is nitpicked more than Halo= "they should of did...", "why they change....", "its the same old Halo", blah, blah, blah - you cant please everyone.
Five is my least favorite of Halo. The campaign was promising, but short, and poorly done. I mean, you fight the same boss multiple times, the team aspect of the game was lackluster, and the story didn’t even come close to what was being advertised. Plus that ending was trash!
Multiplayer was one of the best in the series. Campaign was by far the worst.
4 and 5 were largely forgettable. Rescue us someday, Bungie
4 is actually a lot better than I remembered in general and definitely better than Halo 5 in every way.
I strongly agree. 4 wasn’t a blockbuster classic, but it was good, and was way better than 5
Campaign yes. But Halo 4 multiplayer was garbage and 5 is miles better.
