Master Chief's long-awaited return comes frustratingly close to greatness.
"Halo Infinite really is good Halo. For lapsed fans of the Bungie games like me, Halo Infinite is a strong return to form, and in the heat of battle it's the best running and gunning the series has ever had." Not open world enough, 7.8.
I read the review out of interest, and if you did too then you'd know there were numerous valid criticisms despite the combat being good. It read like a 7 or 8.
Why was my reply deemed inappropriate? It's just a bit of non-offensive light hearted banter. I'd understand if it was offensive.
Someone didn't like what you said
Beats me, people freely abuse it on here.
they need to start calling it out more.
Why? You have not played it so why do you imagine they should call it out more?
Because features are missing. How many times has this been called out before? But I don't think the community will be too bothered most will play it via gamepass anyway. If it was a full 58.99 release and nothing else it may have got panned
I don't know about you all, but I'm excited for Halo's single-player component to drop. I don't care if it's open world or not. Furthermore, I'm simply going to focus on the gaming experience, and I'll judge it accordingly. I hope that the story and gameplay has improved upon 4, and 5, which were all-time series lows in my opinion. I really hope we are presented with a game that's fresh, thoughtful, not woke, and is at least somewhat grounded in reality (no transsexuals, etc.).
Agreed. I think a lot of people are excited at a level I haven't seen since Halo 3. Which is the last time I was personally excited about Halo. Halo doesn't have sexual or gender vased references in it. People complaining about woke culture is nothing new. It's happened throughout history...folks fighting for racial equality were sent as woke culture.
So by "fresh" and "thoughtful" you mean only including things that you understand?
That's what many people with that ideology think.
Seems like a "Closeted" comment.
I actually agree with this review 😃
For a game you haven’t played 🙄
But you can vote for it on the game awards.
Apart from the Gameplay this game seems to be a technical mess. Tbh if I felt like playing Halo I would rather play destiny2. This new Halo looks like a COD clone way too much.
Majority the PC version. They didn't optimize it
Halo is not Destiny and Destiny is not Halo. Just on pure facts, Halo is a supernatural, fantasy, scifi , etc shooter and CoD is a realistic, military style shooter. No, not the same.
There is nothing realistic about Call of Duty. It feels and plays like an arcade shooter.
Halo isn’t supernatural at all. It’s a space opera military shooter. Has been since the first one. There’s no fantasy or magic or anything supernatural. Just technology and biology.
Pietro, it is meant to be more realstic. Realstic weapons, ordinance, etc. Not realistic in the sense of actual combat. Combat vet here. Chubby, correct. Halo is a futuristic, sci-fi shooter. My point is thay CoD and Halo are not the same in those terms. Different lore, feel, weapons, species, etc.
Not played a Halo game since reach. Played the mp for the first time today and my thoughts are how on earth does cod get so much flack? Even though cod vanguard pretty much mw 2019 reskin at least it's fun. Anyhows I will give the single player a chance.
Cod gets flack because it’s the exact same game every single year with the exact same problems over snd over. Halo is taking over the gaming world again like it did 20 years ago. It’s formula is still great fun and offers much more than cod ever has.
Taking over the gaming world? Yer sorry I don't think so. Forza is in my opinion Microsoft's bread and butter now.
Halo reach for me is the pinnacle of the franchise. Doesn't look like 343 can top bungie. I was hoping that this would be a return to form. Still going to play it but I'm going to have to lower my expectations before I jump in.
This score makes more sense then the 9 IGN gave it. How do you say the story is not good in a story driven single player game but the game is almost perfect?
