Microsoft and 343 just continued on with what Bungie started in their last installment, a ****ty attempt at infusing CoD style mechanics into Halo. Halo 5 was actually pretty decent because they realized people didnt want Halo of Duty and removed a lot of the trash. The biggest problem since Halo 3 has been their atrocious map design, they need to rehire whoever worked on Halo 1-3.
please don't be mean to halo reach

I agree, Reach is still very much praised for. It still had a large online community playing on the Xbox 360 up until recently being released in the MCC. Halo 4 and 5 are awful, 4 being the worst clearly shown by its massive player base decline very early in its life. I honestly have nearly zero hope for this next Halo with 343's track record.

Halos problem are the fanboys. They don't want it to change so they had to scrap everything and do a spiritual reboot

I am a lore person. I like when universes tell interesting different stories from the dude-bro stuff. Thats what 343 tried to do with Halo 4. But people whined and *****ed it was too emotional so they cut back and made that crap story in Halo 5. Then people *****ed and moaned that it was too much not like halo so now we get a spirtual reboot.

You guys will never be satisfied and I actually feel sorry for 343.

This is the second time I've seen you blame fans for being disappointed with the Halo reveal, and again I will say that it's stupid to blame fans for being disappointed that the "new" Halo is a last gen Xbox one game. Stop blaming people for having critisism. Microsoft messed up on this by failing to decided which gen they wanted this game to be for sooner in its development cycle.

I never got into Halo because I didn't have a PC in its prime time, but when I see it now, the enemy noises make me question why the devs think I'm 12? And why do grown men like this franchise so much? Nostalgia can only carry a game franchise so far.
.
Several generations of gamers have been formed, the games should evolve. The premise is quite nice...I think nbut it doesn't feel like it has much substance.

Nostalgia factor mostly. I play with some late 20 somethings, n it’s what they grew up playing on consoles.


The problem y’all fail to realize is listening to “the community” is hard to do as only the unhappy people are ever really out saying anything.

Add me on Steam, same name

I agree with the fans. It looked like a remastered old game instead of a new game.

Honestly it feels like 343 has no talent or creativity, take a look at 5 and now this, its a mashup of what other games did with a watered down halo theme thrown on top of it. Halo 5 was basically gears mixed with call of duty, and now this is basically from what i seen so far a mix of destiny and doom again with a watered down halo theme. Im not the least bit interested frankly. If microsoft wants halo to be successful they need to can the entire dev team and replace them with people who actually liked the old halo games because ts obvious 343 either doesnt like halo or has no creativity.

I'm not talking about graphics. I am talking about the state of Halo in general. I did not mention graphics here. It was in response to people saying the capaign is boring/not like Halo. Its always something.

ANd people have nostalgia tinted glasses on about Bungie's Halo. It had its flaws @UltraMega

rose tinted glasses doesnt explain why halo 3 has more players currently than halo 5 does
