Eh, kind of. Vanilla Reach was kinda bad. Lots of balance issues, mediocre maps, etc. 343‘s title update fixes a lot of that up, and the new maps they made in conjunction with Certain Affinity definitely helped increase the map count for the good maps.

Calling Reach, at least the multiplayer portion, purely Bungie’s Halo isn’t fair. 343s Halo 5 mp is probably a top Halo experience as well.

Campaign on the other hand, fantastic job by Bungie and 343 needs to do better on the next one.
Never played multiplayer of any halo. I play halo for its sublime GamePlay in fantastic open ended areas with good AI enemies.

343 games disappointed me in that area. Even halo 5 at 60 fps felt worse in gameplay department. To me it felt more like black ops 3

You realize 343i was a big part of this games development too right?

Not to mention halo 5 has the best multi
343 is just porting this game even that is being done by splash damage. It's like giving credit of sotc to bluepoint.

I have high hopes for infinity but you can't deny halo lost its magic under 343. You'll get your proof when Halo 4 won't even reach these numbers.

Also Halo 5 never felt as good to play in single player bungie halo at twice FPS so I'll just say it's a personal opinion

Lol 😂 this would be great but impossible...I will make a TLOU2 review thread, if you don’t like cinematic games 😂
The would be 2 thread

TLOU2 Review thread for people who like it

TLOU2 review thread For people who don't like it

U would probably get haters sneaking in and posting in the positive thread so they could feed on the energy of people being upset from the haters shitting on there loved game.

Microsoft make easy money here. Most players on their system most likely using game pass.

Nice to see the franchise has interest, I liked Halo 5 thought it was decent/good and looked forward to where the story went.

Wasn't this the series that pushed Xbox's, back in the day? That seems low to me, for one of Microsoft's biggest franchises that people have been thirsting for.

It's a port of an Xbox 360 game from 2010. Not a new entry. It's also only people who purchased the game via Steam. And only concurrent players. Keep in mind also the game is included with Game Pass but those players are not included in this number.
Y'all think Infinite is going to be a day 1 launch game for the Scarlett? Has to be right?
They already confirmed it will be.

Also on Xbox .. but the full collection is obviously on Xbox as well. Also on Gamepass PC and Console.
I just installed the game but it isn’t showing up anywhere? It says it’s installed but won’t show up in games and apps? So you have any idea what’s going on here? I don’t have to install the whole MCC no?

It's a 9 year late port of one of the least acclaimed Halo games. There's heaps of pent up demand for Halo on PC, and this shows it, but it's not the same as a brand new game releasing.
