Halo 5 Guardian review request

11 posts in this topic

As a long time hardcore Halo fan I can say for that Halo needs to sit down.

 

343i has spent the last 3 years ignoring the fans to push out their own creative view. While the story for H5G seems to be great, that was something that no one ever questioned to be great about 343i. They can make a damn good story, no doubt about that but their gameplay and the features within it are just terrible. 

 

I might be a hardcore Halo fan but there are those who just can't see reason without a loud enough voice and AJ is the only honest voice that I know can scream the loudest. People are seeing what 343i have done and ignoring it. If I can't save my fellow Halo players from falling into this trap then all I can do is hope AJ stops new gamers from needlessly going into it along with the people looking at Halo 5G with a curious eye.

 

I really want someone to show people that Halo 5G isn't a Halo game at all, but a different series with the Halo name stamped on the front. If it were any other game it would be held in a high regard but 343i insists on keeping the Halo name while making drastic changes to the core gameplay. 

 

Familiar faces all with a foreign minds is all I saw when I watched the E3 presentation of Halo5G.

Doubt Joe will review it, he's never touched a halo game before. Doesn't really stop by on the forum either as far as I know ><

Personally, I've been obsessed with halo since 1, own every book, pretty much have everything i can get that is halo, and i like everything i saw at e3

the series needs to keep up with the times, something i realized when i played halo 2 vanilla multiplayer recently and realized how dated it felt to me.

After recently going back and playing some halo 2 and 3 multiplayer with my buddy who just got an xbox one halo bundle the other day, I have to say I felt constantly slow, vulnerable, and pretty limited in mobility.  I'm glad they have recently taken steps to improve that with sprint and the bursts that were in the Halo 5 beta, makes it feel like I am more in control and have more options in terms of mobility.

if Angry Joe does try out Halo 5, and he finds the campaign after a few missions only "so lala", hope he goes up setting or two (veteran or legandary), where Halos have had they're best/epic gameplay since H3... (would be a pitty to rush thru it on a medicore gameplay feeling)

I will be reviewing it, and I have to say... the changes to gameplay are VERY welcome. I love the new additions and mechanics.

I still miss the real firefight though...Halo Reach...Oh well I do Hope he reviews it though I think he would prefer to review the newest Assassin Creed game that I will never buy.

I almost took this thread seriously then I looked at the date. This one has come back from the dead.

Actually:

 

 

I think chances are good that he will review Halo 5. It gives him the chance to review an X1 title after a while. Doubt that he'd wait till Tomb Raider for that, even more so when that's going to come out at the same time as Fallout 4.
