Put on your space helmets, Gunslingers, because Halo calls us into action once again in Halo 5: Guardians!

What's the word on Halo 5 friends?

Postby Pikan Rikan » Tue Oct 27, 2015 9:25 am

When I read some of the other gaming sites I visit, all I hear is negativity and backlash that Halo 5 didn't get perfect scores and because of that it's a failure. I tend not to have such extreme and polarized opinions on video games. I would like to hear from my fellow 'Slingers...what do you like about Halo 5? Since I will be rolling mostly with GSers...your opinions matter to me more than random internet trolls. I finally took the plunge and ordered the Halo 5 Xbox One console which I will get by Friday so I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.

I'm fairly new to Halo, so take that into consideration, but after have played just the two first missions I think it's a solid game. I'll be trying PvP sometime this week and my opinion of that might be different. But at least with the campaign, I think they've done an excellent job. It has solid handling (different from past Halo games, more inline with current FPS's) and, so far, a story that has be really interested in playing through it. I think a lot of folks were expecting the second coming with Halo 5 which probably explains a lot of the vinegar out there.

I think the campaign was pretty fun and a big improvement over 4. The enemies are less annoying, ammo is less scarce, and the level design is some of the best I've played in a fps. I also thought the story was pretty interesting and sets up nicely for an epic halo 6.

Haven't tried campaign yet, but I'm loving multiplayer. My favorite since halo 3. Might even like it more honestly.

Beer, because no good story ever started with 'here, hold my salad'

Have not tried campaign yet either. But tried multiplayer for a little today. Love it, Feels so good. And it is so smooth. I fell out of halo for a while, loved 2/3 online and did not play reach or 4. This one reminds me why i love it so much.

Played some multiplayer tonight and it's been the first time in a while the wife and I have played a FPS and not consistently gotten our asses handed to us. The first 3 games were rough for us: like 10 - 50 ending scores. But then, it seemed to properly match us on skill with others and we had some great games with both sides scoring over 45. It was a lot of fun.

I'm looking forward to this weekend and hopefully having some great fun with a group!

I played through some of the first campaign mission on Legendary. It was what you would expect from a halo game with the addition of 3 AI controlled (although they can be human) squad mates.

If you like Halo you'll like this!
