Campaign is...well it's good but none of the concepts from the marketing campaign like Chief being a traitor or ONI being involved was actually in the game

Well gee, thanks for the spoiler.

Been taking my time on the campaign. Just a few missions in.

Is it really spoiling if it doesn't happen? I've seen this all over the net. People are super peeved because the trailers mislead them into believing there would be some kind of conflict between Chief and Locke, and Chief is labeled a traitor to be hunted. This never happens. IGN even wrote an entire article on it which is probably still on the front page, and a ton of people are raging.

The actual story is apparently something alltogether different, so no one is really spoiled.

Not really a spoiler, just told you what WASN'T in the game....well I guess technically you at least know what not to expect but at least I haven't told you what's actually in the game.

It could of been a really cool concept too with ONI's involvement since they're basically work from the shadows and spoon feed bullshit to the public

Truthfully, you are right but telling somebody what's not in the game is still kind of ruin the experience.

Yeah, it gave me a pretty good idea of what to expect after knowing what wasn't in the game, so what could've been a surprise for me was still kinda ruined in the end.

I should've just done what I did before by avoiding a thread for a game until I finished its story, period. Oh well.


But I'm not really mad about the story being different from what the trailers led you to believe. Not the first time this kind of thing's happened. Sorta used to it by now if anything, for better or worse.

So I have played about 10 arena slayer maps and I have been getting destroyed.

I got moved into a ranked playlist and changed my sensitivity and instead of getting 5 kills/15 deaths, the last matches I got were 17ish kills/6 deaths. Either I played complete shit players or the sensitivity was that slow. Previously, I had to get the drop on a guy to be able kill him. Now, if I get shot I can get out of it. It's pretty sweet.

Been loving the multiplayer. This is probably some of the most fun I've had on a shooter ever. Just wish they got rid of that ***** Breakout mode. It's absolutely terrible and every time I play my K/D ratio plummets.

Really don't know where he's coming from on this being one of the shortest Halo campaigns when for me, it was one of the longest (heroic/legendary), up there with Halo 2. Maybe some of the missions themselves could've been longer but it's still like, what? 12 missions not counting the 3 non-combat ones? And knocking the ending for having a cliffhanger as though others like Halo 2 didn't have one? lol

He's definitely not wrong though about the majority of them being with Spartan Locke, while less than a handful are with Chief... Recycling the Warden Eternal boss fights (who are a pain on legendary, needless to say) was kinda meh too, but the Warden did seem kinda fresh at first, far as promethean enemies go. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: A boss fight with Chief or Locke depending on who you're playing as could've been great too though, I suppose.

The REQ system I've been mixed on, though glad he addressed the bullshit microtransactions part of it, as expected, along with the misleading of the story, although I still liked it for what it was.


Oh, and agree on the Breakout mode @ ares.

Can you seriously only get new armor for your Spartan via raffle? You can still unlock specific pieces after you reach a specific rank, complete online challenges or finish the campaign on Legendary can't you?

I agree with most everything he said.

I bought this game because of my long time support of the franchise, but I think it is about time to hang up the pistol and move on. This direction is not for me.

One of my biggest issues with the game is the overly complicated single player hud. It is insane and makes me dizzy more often than not and this is something that has never, ever happened to me during my entire gaming life.

MP seems balanced and fun, but there is really only room for one FPS MP for me, and Destiny got that spot solidly. About as solid as the original Halo trilogy had it.

Breakout is a separate mode, just don't play it

Yeah how dickish of somebody to enact free publicity to give a company's product attention. What a monster.

Man, this is sad to hear coming from you, but kind of understandable I guess. For all the new features the game added like the spartan charge, it also took away from the Halo experience in other areas.

Didn't have that kind of problem with the campaign hud, just getting used to the controls at first. If you're not gonna finish it I would say at least youtube the story cutscenes. Definitely know I'll be getting Halo 6 with the way it ended and to see how 343's trilogy ends. But as it is now, there's little denying that it's mostly a new generation of gamers carrying the series' success, while most of the older Halo veterans have just moved on... After 6 I can imagine I'd be done too.

Yeah, the multiplayer is fun, but I can tell it won't keep me hooked far as long as some previous Halo's did. Then again, might be too premature to say considering other playlists and shit that'll be added later.

Sometimes Team Arena will make you play Breakout though.

Jewario? The guy who committed suicide?

I am not sure for how long Halo 5 MP, and in general, will remain relevant when all the heavy hitters come out swinging. Halo 4 had horrible retention, and it loos like the same might happen with 5 now that BLOPS3 has everyone all hyped up and we got the new top dog still reigning supreme(Destiny)

True/probably, and that's no surprise about Halo 4. Even Reach's multiplayer didn't remain relevant as long as I hoped, and I enjoyed the hell out of that (at least compared to 4 and the like). Halo hasn't been 'top dog' since the original trilogy, to be honest really.

Agreed. I played every Halo extensively up to this one. I thought they were all pretty good with their ups and downs. Reach being the least liked MP wise. Its true that Halo is no longer the shooter to beat, and it sucks because I just can't help but respect the love and desire 343 has to bring it back to ESports front row. Its very interesting how 343 and Bungie's approach differ. 343 geared Halo towards a more competitive environment where as Bungie decided to go full casual with Destinyl. No surprise full casual is winning.

Still I haven't played the MP all that much, and I will do so this weekend. I refuse to give up on this franchise without a fight xD

Don't know if it's going to reach Halo 3 levels which had hundreds of thousands of players on years after launch and even has players on right now on the original version on the 360 (not many but the game is now 8 years old)

Even Halo Reach has 20,000+ players on right now, although it helped that they gave the game away for free with Games with Gold

But I do think Halo 5 will at least outlast Halo 4, not that that's saying much. The competitive focus will keep the hardcore players around, Warzone for the casuals and the fact that all the DLC will be free. I think Halo 5 will do just fine especially compared to Halo 4
