I wasnt a halo fan until i had to buy a replacement xbox 360 and it came with Halo reach.

I liked it alot. Then when halo 4 came out, i had it pre ordered. After the battlefield 4 was released i told myself i would never pre order another game again.

So alas, Halo 5 is now out and before i fork out $80 bonez for it, i would like to hear any opinions or thoughts you may have about it.
Ive read the reviews online and theres not ONE in favour for the game.

But luckily i dont care what forbes magazine had to say about Halo, i want to hear it from other gamers.

So my fellow ATS gamers, have you played it? What do you think about it?

I'm a PC gamer so can't give you my opinion but Metacritic user score seems quite positive.
www.metacritic.com...

I think if you like Halo and you're looking for an online shooter it's probably worth a go.

Played it at a friends house for a few hours, personally don't like it, generic boring maps and looks way too cartoony. I remember the hype surrounding Halo 3 back in my X360 days and was very disappointed when i played it. I've found the Halo releases since to be just as disappointing, not to mention the reigns were handed over to another studio which is rarely a good thing (BFHardline-Visceral, COD-Treyarch. etc) .

There are much better sci fi shooters out there and a little upcoming game called Star Wars Battlefront should satiate my sci fi requirements.

I hope theres a lot more to battlefront than what the beta had to offer. There seemed to be very minimal in the way of unlocks. Hopefully there will be a lot more in the full release.
But as for Halo, i remember grinding like mad in Reach trying to unlock more helmets and body armour.
Really hope there are as much different armour varients as reach had.

I have heard it is a great game, but I am a PC gamer so I will never be able to play the franchise. My daughter's friends seem to think it is the best game ever. Too bad it is only available on the SpyBox One. I personally would never own one of these craptastic machines.

Not one positive?

Just google Halo 5 review:

IGN - 9/10
Gamespot - 8/10
Metacritic - 4.5/5

Look pretty good to me.

I still cant pull myself away from Destiny to play any other shooters.

Well, that's a lie. Forza 6 and PES 2016 get my attention when I need some motorsport or football action.

spybox one?

I've owned it without the kinect no probs at all for well over a year now. Functions perfectly without one.

I've only scratched the surface of multiplayer, but the new Warzone mode is pretty good. The maps are huge and we're not plagued with connection issues, as was the case with MCC.

Campaign is really fun, I'm playing through with a buddy and it's looking to be the best campaign to date. A new squad of Spartans have joined us and the friction is high. Looking forward to testing out 4 way co-op, it'll be a blast. We get a bit of team command too, being able to mark targets and set waypoints.

I really like Halo 5. Not disappointed.

If you get it and want some teammates, add me.

I just finished playing through the campaign, and it's definitely not bad at all. I haven't played online yet, or coop, but the story is interesting and it leads to a lot of possibilities. The campaign is definitely a story-driven one to help lift successive titles higher, which isn't a bad thing, it just means that there's a lot of plot needed to lift wherever it is their going to.

The combat system has been tweaked mildly, and in my personal opinion, they did a very good job in it.

The Campaign, for those who don't know, have 3 AI plus you (unless you do coop with up to 3 other players), and the AI definitely needs to be smarter. They aren't total idiots, but they do like to run out of cover in the middle of a firefight, take your vehicle and drive you around when you just want to sit there in the warthog turret in a great position, or do absolutely nothing when you tell them to sit at a specific spot in a firefight to keep them from getting blown away so easily.

There's this REQ system that they introduced that's interesting, but also flawed. In previous titles you unlocked armor, or other aesthetics based on skill alone, in this REQ system you gain REQ points and can buy a bundle of unlockable stuff which has a chance of unlocking various things. Which, in my opinion is both great, and absolutely horrible. It means that anyone, even the worst players, have the chance of getting the most sought after aesthetics there are if their lucky, and theirs little point to doing specific things to become the best of the best, the drive just isn't there for these kind of unlockables.

Some of the previous titles used the campaign to unlock specific thing, for instance if you were to beat the campaign by yourself on legendary, you would unlock an armor set, but now it only gives you Achievement points, but it isn't a big WOW factor as it used to.

In the end, it's still worth it, and it brings a different feel to the franchise, whilst still being the same thing.

343 studios made a totally crap game and killed Halo in my mind. I hated the Promethians I hated the forrunner. The forrunner were supposed to be evolved acient humans not a seperate alien race they butchered the whole franchise with that game.


Long live Halo 1 threw Reach. Halo reach has the best ending ever!

Save your money and buy the new Star Wars Battlefront. I played the Beta the game is balls to the walls Star Wars and so much fun.

HALO 5 CUTSCENES MOVIE

If you've read the early books and watched the Guardians' series, the story is pretty fluid. Graphics are outstanding, certainly the best looking Halo yet. The world feels massive.

I'm very pleased with the game, though I keep trying to do Destiny moves like the double jump and the slightly slower, bulkier feeling melee attacks (vs Destiny) create a bit of frustration.

Bought and payed for reviews IMO. The halo franchise is deluted. I could just be jaded from halo 4. I play about 85% of big title games I don't care about genre I play em all.

I enjoyed destiny lots great game play fascinating universe. I don't think I'll be purchasing halo 5.

Thats just it, i enjoyed and strived to earn those armour pieces in reach.
I found that to be one of the biggest things that made halo stand apart from other games.

Sorry that reply was supposed to be for Ghost.

I think i will pick the game up tomorrow after i drop the kids off at school. That will give me a few hours to try the game out. Ill send you a pm with my GT

I really liked destiny when it first came out. But after i finished the very short campaign, that was it for me. I pretty much lost all interest, even the first dlc didnt reignite that spark for me.

Well...that video sure did it. Nerd-gasm to the 100 power.

I was bent out of shape when i found out there wasnt going to be space battles, but it still looks phenomenal!

Absolutely it does mate. So pleased dice is the Dev. Been a massive fan of the Battlefield franchise since bad company days and knew when they announced it it would be pretty good. personally really enjoyed the beta if a little too short and that latest trailer just whet my appetite.

Anyway I'm derailing with star wars propaganda so ill leave it here.

I wish my opinion above was "bought and paid for." Unfortunately, it isn't... it's just the opinion of someone who has played the game for a couple of hours the past 2 evenings and has had a lot of fun with the game. I've played every Halo game over the years. I wouldn't say this is the best Halo, but it's certainly not the worst.

Im eager to pick it up now.
I Do like multiplayer games, but i also love a good solo campaign. And with the option to add a buddy or two to the fray in camp. It might make for some fun times. Unless the enemies are too spaced out, that we are competing over kills. Hopefully there are lots of bad guys to feel my DMR.
