I just got the game and it plays fine, I can enter lobbies no problem.


Only thing is that everybody wants to play Halo 3.

It launched in an awful state that wasn’t properly addressed for quite some time, even after Halo 5 released IIRC.

Now it plays pretty well, I played it for a couple of hours over the past week without any issues. But for quite some time matchmaking was an atrocious experience.
Forgive me for I am a noob. I know not what I do.

Yeah, the game had a very rocky start with its matchmaking issues. And a lot of people bought the game especially to play the Halo 2 matchmaking. So the fact that this mode barely worked the first several weeks/months, it left a bad taste in those people's mouths who didn't care about the campaigns.

So even though the game runs fine today (for the most part), most people never got over that initial reaction.

The campaigns play wonderful, by the way. So if there ever is a stretch where you struggle to find a multiplayer match, just boot up any one of the campaigns to kill time before trying again.

Halo 2 Anniversary is my favorite game on the Xbox One. They did such a great job with it. So that game's campaign was worth the collection for me automatically.

Took them a year to fix the games multiplayer. Cause that's perfectly acceptable for a MP game to have it's 1st year be borderline unplayable and offer no refunds. By the time it was working okay everyone had already abandoned ship and never returned. What was supposed to be a celebration of Halo 2 online returning was just one of the worst examples of a game going for sale broken. Like how do you f*** up your flagship franchise that badly?

Campaigns are great. I never ran into an issue while playing them. Grab a buddy for 1 and 2 then get a group for 3 and 4.
