[TechSpot] Halo Infinite debut is met with complaints, Microsoft blames poor stream and early build

Quote:
The Halo Infinite demo certainly stirred feelings of nostalgia for those who remember the first game on the original Xbox. But rose-tinted glasses can't hide the fact that compared to some of the other next-gen titles we've seen, it didn't look that visually impressive.
Quote:
According to Xbox Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg, however, the demo is an early build, and those who watched the stream in 1080p should watch the 4K/60fps version (below) to get a better idea of what to expect.

Could it be that in Microsoft's quest to make a Halo game that scales across everything from the Xbox One to PCs of all specs, Halo Infinite on the Xbox Series X will look like something from a couple of years ago? Hopefully, things will have improved by the time it launches.

Well disappointing graphics aside, at least they made the grunts cute and goofy like the Bungie originals. I think the gameplay looks alright, but just alright. Definitely nothing to make it feel fresh.

It looks like another mediocre/bad game from 343. After 8 years, I don't know why anyone expected anything different. This studio is among the most incompetent AAA studios in existence.

Especially once they started making it some endless cycle of ancient humans moving slightly farther across the galaxy away from the flood, appointing celestial guardians and rebooting civilizations at will, and all the other weird crap from the Halo EU.

Digital Foundry is saying its a cross-gen game. As BigMack also alludes to, the game was meant for xboxone.

One must wonder what has been going on behind the curtains at 343.
I expect there would have been a fairly steady flow of creative leads coming and going. First hiring people who thought Halo 5 was a good idea, and then probably firing most of them.

Except Bungie's last Halo game was dog ****. Halo Reach is literally the worst Halo game by a significant margin. Halo Reach in many ways killed Halo, it was so bad that everyone switched to Call of Duty and Halo's player numbers never really recovered. 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.

I don't believe you played halo 4 or 5 if you think this. In no world is Reach multiplayer worse than Halo 4. Same for Reach campaign vs Halo 5.
