    As a loyal Halo fan I enjoyed playing through the campaign until I reached the end. The way the game ended I would recommend waiting for the next Halo game to come out if you want to feel like you accomplished something in the game.

    Not a bad story line but could've been better the twist at the end was kinda predictable because c'mon, Master Cheif would never be on the dark side haha

    Families get together to play gaming consoles and buy games according to their needs and halo 5 did not have local multiplayer and coop like all the rest of the halos and did not know this until after I bought it and this the result of greed on there end except they will loose customers

    Overall this game is awesome but with a terrible cliffhanger at the end, I just really don't like the addition of REQ packs which are in-game purchaded

    I have to say 343 Studios knocked one out of the park with this one.The gameplay and online multiplayer is on point in this one in my opinion.The story for the single player is good, but the ending is weak in my opinion.That is my only complaint with this game is the ending.Otherwise this is a fantastic game, just saying.

    The story's end feels abrupt. The multi-player is fun.

    The story was very eh. It felt very lackluster until the end of the game. The box art makes you think it's a Chief/Locke 50/50 split, but you are mainly playing as Locke in this game.

    I have never been a huge Halo fan, but always fall into the trap of purchasing the new game because of all of the hype, and usually end up bored or disappointed. Not this time. The game is worth s purchase just for the Warzone mode alone, but the entire package is an entertaining experience and will be my game of choice until Star Wars Battlefront arrives on Nov 17.

    The game is decent, its ok to play but if you play on Heroic then NEVER revive your teammates (single player) they are far better off to you dead, they get in the way and don'thing but drag you out of cover and get you killed. The story was boring (to me at least) and the advertising for this game set up a belief that there was going to be some major conflict between Locke and Chief but this never happens, the dark, gritty, conclusion we were lead to believe was coming was a total lie and just another set up for another game that goes nowhere. If you enjoy Halo then yes its an ok game to play, but if you were expecting a deep and entertaining story then don't get your hopes up.

    Pros: Content in the box are really nice. It comes with a rare metal earth figure that is an excellent desk ornament or collectors item. The steel book is also very nice and way better than the regular edition. Multiplayer is what saved this game. It is extremely fun and if you have friends to join in, it can be a blast. Cons: Story is horrible and did not earn the cliffhanger ending. Major plot holes and completely ignored a majority of halo 4's plot. Very disappointing and now die-hard fans need to wait about 3 more years for an ending. Story will be forgotten quick in this game.

    I love playing Halo and this one was great. But the campaign left me lacking as well as a cliff hanger ending didn't help. It is probably the weakest of the main halo games story wise. Still a lot of fun to play though.

    Maybe I'm just old school (get it!?!?) but The story in this game one of the worst yet and the ending sets up a cliff hanger that it doesn't deserve to have. Maybe this is the letdown of a game to setup the next halo? Multiplayer is meh and theres no split screen anymore. Like this WAS the split screen game and now its just another copy cat shooter.

    The multiplayer is very solid and war zone is a great new mode that will keep people playing it is a bit of campaign and multiplayer at once so it changes game play quite a bit, all future maps will be free and there are micro transactions that you don't need to buy but can if you want to jump ahead. The csmpz ago gnc was fun but not great. The story drags and doesn't have much going on til the end when it gets gooooood. Locke is painful ly boring but the other members of both teams have personality

    The campaign is disappointing and ends on a cliffhanger. The Warzone multiplayer REQ system is frustrating. But the Arena multiplayer is very good and polished. Movement and handling are improved over Halo 3/4.

    This Game Is a good FPS, But it is not a Halo game, If you where Expecting halo gameplay that you have known and loved, then I suggest you wait and see If they can get it right with Halo 6. But if you are just wanting to try out a FPS feel free to hop in and play, This would be alot better as a New IP then using the Halo name to sell it. As far as Campaign goes, It's lacking in both story and length. It's over way too quick, The story is Subpar to what we are used too and ends on a unresolved Cliffhanger, Which we won't see a satisfactory continuation in till Halo 6

    Honestly I had higher hopes for this game, mostly due to how the story played out for 4. Now I know in terms of plot that the campaign was used as the exposition to the finale in halo 6 so it kinda ends off with a bland cliffhanger that most wouldn't know it had ended till the credits role. However that is no excuse for such weak plot points and storytelling. The Multiplayer is where the game works best and should be the only reason to pick this up unless your die-hard halo fan of course, it can be fun to get the squad together and wreak havoc in Warzone, but all in all weak story and campaign, great multiplayer hope this helps. .

    The game is plays very good, the level design and graphics are great. But, the story is lacking which used to be Halo games best part. Plus the part were agent Lock was searching for a possible traitorous master chief was not in the game at all. Plus the end was not very strong either. Multiplayer is good as any other halo game.
