Thread Details

Really surprises me that either it was buried and the search didn't locate it or it just wasn't thought about after the cluster fark that was MCC. It's probably the best MP Halo I've played since Halo 2.

The story is easily the weakest for the franchise (Halo Wars, an RTS, is better). Boring Locke takes center stage over the iconic Master Chief while 6 other Power Rangers crowd the camera to agree with whatever Locke/Master Chief just said. And the Promethians are an irreversible can-of-worms: Halo started out as humans, the Covenant, the Flood, and AI remnants of the Forerunners... it should stay that way.

I got the game but haven't played it yet... I just don't have the group of friends that used to make Halo fun...it seems like I only know people that play 7 days a week and I can't keep up or they are people that play once a month and are never on.

Is it easy to group up?

Meh, didn't even know it was out. Thought it was coming out December.

When I did have my xbox, after Halo 3 I stopped caring. Halo 4 didn't feel like Halo, and the MCC was like a red headed step child.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

I'm on a few nights a week, but I'm also 13+ hours ahead of most, if not all of you. Add me anyways. Decided, for now to stay away from COD.

Last week was pretty busy for me, so I didn't manage to play as much as I wanted to.

I could tell from the beta they were trying to go back to the roots, so it was no surprise that this seems to be the best Halo since 2/3.

I'd like to see some fixes/changes though. Grenades are pretty OP. Weapons are pretty balanced..but I feel the AR is too efficient at some ranges.

The maps need variety.

Finally, spawn points are pretty bad in slayer.

Really their are a ton of complaints saying this game is pretty much COD and this game is just as bad as halo 4.

Totally agree.

The last couple Halo games not holding my attention is what caused me to switch from Xbox to Playstation this gen.

Warzone might be CoD-esque.

Arena is pretty barebones and doesn't feel like CoD at all...aside from the bad spawns.

Very true and well said HALO started out as Humans stranded fighting for survival against amazing aliens of (twist) many different races of aliens working together. Which was awesome. Oh by the way as if that wasn't enough, Space Zombies !!! yes the Flood again different types of flood from tiny to huge coming at you. Oh and they would consume Marines too. Oh yeah and these aliens want to activate the HALO rings which are ancient alien installations which are a weapon which exterminates the Flood (along with all other life). Even more ancient Aliens Forerunners. they lost me at Promethians and a bad Cortana

Before I played HALO 5 I really like Locke but I had no idea you play as Locke 90% of Halo 5. IMO there should be community wide outrage on this. Imagine buying a Large Pizza and you open the Box and theres 3 Cheeseburgers and only 1 Slice of Pizza still good but not what you wanted.

Thankfully, Multiplayer is the best ever. COD style left trigger Aiming is a necessary evolution so are the attack Moves and charges I would love to see a More Tactical HALO instead of red vs blue spartans I'd like to see, reaistic colored armor vs. playable Elites with their own special abilities and armors. More earth based city or jungle maps and yes even Killstreaks like calling and Pelican attack gun run or Elites calling in 3 Grunts air dropped as back up. But that would be a full COD remake of HALO
