Halo 5: Guardians review


Master Chief is back, but this space opera hits a bum note

Visually stunning. ; Warzone may yet prove its worth ; Nathan Fillion from Firefly

Single player campaign dumber than a sack of grain ; Repetition, repetition, repetition ; Plot, script, universe

An all-too familiar return for the archetypal sci-fi FPS

Halo 5: Guardians review


Halo 5: Guardians is great if you're a big fan of its multiplayer modes, but its campaign is the weakest of the series.

might be an evolution for the series, but it’s not a wholly positive one. The campaign feels like a painful misfire, despite being populated with fairly interesting characters and many a gorgeous locale. The game’s hindered by the areas where it’s...

Halo 5: Guardians Review


Halo 5: Guardians is a game chock full of change. Not only is it a new Halo for a new(ish) console - and by new, we mean new and not remastered - but it's a whole new era. There's a new protagonist joining Chief, there's a new approach to some of the...

Halo 5: Guardians is an exciting Halo package, marred only by some questionable design decisions, like microtransactions and some shoddy friendly-AI in the campaign. It’s not a classic Halo, but 343 is moving in a good direction with the franchise.

Halo 5: Guardians Review


Juggling fan expectations for the Halo series must be incredibly tricky for 343 Industries. It’s not just that the newish Halo kids on the block have inherited a hell of a mantle from Bungie, it’s also that we fans expect that a Halo game’s...

XBox One Halo certainly not a Christmas miracle!


So I would have to purchase another console, tv, and game for my two boys to play this game together. I've already payed Microsoft for Gold for the three of us. They just keep inventing new ways to get our money! I'm saddened by this. I do appreciate...

This Halo edition is beautiful, makes cool sounds, has a nice controller with headset! Xbox one is quiet and the user interface is nice looking. New controllers feel better in the hand than 360. Set up was easy. Graphics are amazing!

Well, I guess I should have researched before spending so much extra for the Halo special edition. Halo is my main issue. Microsoft is an issue I have already come to terms with. I have two boys and they loved playing the prior versions. They opened...

everything I needed and then some


I've had the PS4 since launch day so I didn't really feel like i needed an extra console, I also had the xbox360 so I felt it was enough. But with the release of halo 5 AND the announcement of gears of war 4 I knew it was definitely time for an Xbox...

Arrived earlier then expected, practically a 2 day shipping for free. At time bought it at a special that came with a second limited edition halo controller, BO3, and turtle beach headset. Awesome value. Great 1TB storage, currently downloaded a total...

Just one but not really a deal breaker, I would have loved a physical copy of halo 5.
