I wonder how many people will buy Xbox One just for this game, like what happened with Halo 3.


If you have friends with mics, it is fun. I used to play with my rl friends because that was all that was coming out. We all beat the campaign, then played the fun on line every day. Halo is not my favorite FPS but it does offer some fun campaigns and MP.

Then CoD4 came out and Halo is something that I never felt evolved much. People may get on CoD for doing the same ****(I agree with them!), but Gears and Halo games have that all too familiar feeling of the earlier installments. That means the games have not really evolved. Even the jump to part 4, which was entertaining, did not stray for from the core gameplay.

On top of that, they try to find ways to keep players around. Weekly challenges, daily challenges, customization. I like that stuff in a shooter. In Halo 3, I loved how a picture of your character showed up on Bungie's website. My elite had some very hard to get gear.


That why Halo 3, Reach and 4 all sold over 9 million copies each. They don't stray too far from the formula.

But each one is different enough to introduce slightly different play styles.

Halo 3 was big on the dual wielding, portables and the ability to carry 3 different grenades.

Halo Reach was big on armor abilities.

Halo 4 expanded armor abilities, classes and added custom load outs and new vehicles.

All 3 games don't share every weapon either which shakes things up a bit much like CoD.

My dream for Halo 5 is everything from 4 with all the missing weapons from Halo 3, and Reach added in. Plus portables.

I hope there is matchmaking for campaign. I only buy Halo to play the co-op campaign, and get a little into the pvp.

Halo 4 was good to me, but I know a lot of the fans didn't like the large step forward(sprinting and choosing a load out as opposed to walking, and finding everything around the map like old school 1995 quake style.) I enjoyed this chance.


Finding the weapons on the map encouraged map control. In halo 3 a team could not just camp one area Cod style because the other team would gain the power weapons and take control. It was good for competitive play. They need to find a balance between loadouts and power weapons. I know some were placed on the map but the main focus was earning power weapons through ordinance drops which greatly altered how halo was played.

It's going to be very tempting for me, I'll tell you that. Between Halo, Titanfall, and Forza I just might cave and get one.
