What's the word on Halo 5 friends?

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

Likes:
Visuals, everything you could expect from a new gen Halo, love em
Gameplay, a few tweaks to the controls take some getting used to, but smooth & responsive
Campaign, tougher than ever. 4 players on heroic felt challenging & fun
Multiplayer, smooth. Only 1 lag issue & 1 server disconnect in 10 hours of gameplay on launch day. Impressed.

Dislikes
Only a very minor complaint here, Warzone is almost too large scale & chaotic. Not the classic Halo expirence. Arena Slayer 4v4 is too small. But it IS the classic Halo that I love. So hoping for some game modes soon to fill the gap.

Ill be playing alot again today & I cant wait to get home!

I played through the first 7 missions so far. I haven't paid much attention to the overall lore of Halo, so picking up the story might be a bit difficult for some. However, a little bit of research goes a long way ;-). However, it still feels like there are holes left unfilled and the characters seem meh. I'm only half ways through so things might get better. Most complaints revolve around this and honestly it really isn't that big of deal to me because....

The gameplay is superb, quite satisfying, and fun. The controls are so smooth. Been awhile since I've played a game that felt like that.
The game is beautiful and full of color. It reminded me of Metroid Prime on Gamecube. Sometimes, I just like to stare at the details put into the levels.

I have yet to try MP. I will probably complete the campaign before I do.

I'm currently playing Battlefield 1, Battlefield 4, Diablo III, Halo 5, Neverwinter: Stronghold

I'm playing some of the campaign with a group of 4 of us and it works really well. During some of the 'on-rails' game play sections where the game is controlling your person for you to get through a scene, each player sometimes sees something different - which I think is kind of a neat touch.

Completely agree. Warzone was a very frustrating experience. We understood the objective (capture the bases) but didn't understand how to do this objective. The AI enemies also didn't seem to add anything to the game play - almost as if they were just kind of sprinkled on top an after thought. I'm looking forward to trying this game mode again this weekend with a group to figure it out, but I'm not impressed at the moment.

Arena, on the other hand, was very fun :D

Definitely! Hopefully it comes no problems. You going to be on all night friday? thats my day for all nighter, and saturday.


I wish I could be on Friday night but I have a work-related event in the evening, it's a Halloween themed reception with lots of schoozing and boozing so at least it will be fun. After the event though, I plan on setting up my console so I can download my digital copy of Halo overnight and take a first crack at it Saturday morning.

I'm stoked! My console arrived a day early so I get to set it up and start DLing the game tonight.

Oh no..."cough, cough". I think I'm coming down with something and I might have to call in sick to work tomorrow!

Sweet!!! I may or may not still have you on my friends list, but if not, shoot me a friend request! My Halo time is sporadic at the moment (new baby makes it hard sometimes :P ) but I'm down to play whenever I'm on.

I was pretty disappointed in the campaign, and I'm thinking of trying to get my money back.

Thanks Dunk...I just sent you a friend request. My play time too is pretty random and it might just be 20-30 minute sessions at a time but I'll take what I can get. At this point, I'm just happy to have a game that other GSers are actively playing so I'm looking forward to party up again.
