WOW!!!!!!! Posted by: from: on Probably the best Halo since the original. My only issue is the single player game seems a bit short. The graphics are top notch as well as the gameplay. But be prepared....took 3.5 hours for the game to burn to the XBOX ONE hard drive. And that's before you can even play it! Online has been fun, but people rarely use a headset so you cannot communicate with your teammates.

Not for beginners Posted by: from: on This game was complicated. I thought it was just me, but my BF, who plays these kinds of games all the time, even had some trouble. Graphics are awesome though! It just would've been nice if I could've figured out how to play it.

As a self-professed Halo fanatic, its only "okay" Posted by: from: on I am a die-hard, avid Halo fanatic and have been since before the very first Halo game came out (yes, I followed it's development back when Halo was to be a Mac game!) I have every (official) Halo game ever made, as well as all the books, comics, and other such media. I LOVE Halo. And being such a huge Halo fan, I had very high expectations for this game, particularly in the characterization and story departments. On that front, I was highly disappointed. The characterization in Halo 5 was almost completely lacking, and this with 8 main characters instead of the normal one!! Utterly shameful. Such potential for awesome story-telling, for complex human emotions, all wasted on textbook characters who all seem like clones of sheep. Atrocious. If you like playing story mode and can ignore the horrific lack of depth in the characters and story, you may actually enjoy some of the gameplay. I feel that it does retain the feel of a Halo game while also introducing some new elements which are intriguing and interesting. The verticality of this game is very refreshing and noticeable, though perhaps not to the extent of games like Titanfall or Mirror's Edge. But really, the multiplayer is where it is at with this game. The typical deathmatch style gameplay is your usual Halo fun, and the new e-sports type gamestyles (Grifball, Breakout, etc.) can be a lot of fun. Warzone is a decent attempt at large-scale madness and, while certainly not perfect, it comes off pretty well and is enjoyable. Personally, I did not find the gameplay to be quite as satisfying (or as addicting) as Destiny, though it was certainly fun and addicting in it's own way. Yes, I admit my review is biased towards the single-player campaign (story), but the depth of the Halo universe and characters is what gets me to buy Halo games in the first place. The fact that these qualities were woefully inadequate in the Halo 5 campaign is partially offset by my enjoyment of the many multiplayer modes, but in the end the MP was not enough to truly satisfy my "Halo" longings. In fact, to me Halo 5 was almost a 180 of Halo 4, in which I thoroughly enjoyed the depth of complex emotions and character development of the campaign but found the actual "fun" of the gameplay and multiplayer to be lacking. Maybe with Halo 6 they'll get it right?
