I feel the same way. When I played it, I wanted to continue the Master Chief saga but instead it felt like they threw a bunch of Halo characters, etc and called it Halo 5. Should've been called something like Halo Osiris so people would know that this new arc is about the Osiris team hunting down the "rogue Master Chief and his team". Even then, one playthrough of the campaign was enough for me. Multiplayer could be fun, but I'm not into it really. (skeptical)
Ah yes. Halo 5. Where everybody was excited to see what happens next with the Master Chief, and instead you only get to play as him in 3 of the 15 missions... Ugh. Oh and the writer taking a big fat dump on beloved characters.
I got back into this recently and the online scene is still really strong, plus Super Fiesta Party and Warzone/Firefight are great little time burners. It's also one of the best for coop on legendary difficulty. Definitely worth this
If this didn't have the halo name attached to it, I think it would be a distant memory by now. Very mediocre game and has an "early in generation" feel as its just too short. Good price though if you want to shoot some stuff.
Shame about the missed oppotunity with both TV Series, and lack of no movie, i'm sure the movie will happen, likes the gritty demo reel by ''Neill Blomkamp''.
I've been playing a lot of Halo recently through the MCC and I have the complete opposite opinion in terms of it being dated. I think the games generally look fantastic, even Halo 3 still looks great and I wouldn't say the gameplay is dated, its just different from how a lot of FPS games play nowadays. The campaigns for me are still the best single player FPS experiences but guess its different strokes for different folks at the end of the day.
I think it's an awful game that killed any interest I had in Halo. I thought the story made sense up to Reach but I didn't like the retcons in Halo 4 and the story in Halo 5 isn't just bad but it ruins the end of Halo 4 as well as having a terrible villain. I could live with that if the gameplay was good but I thought it was poor as well. I did have high hopes in getting back into it with Warzone Firefight as Reach's Firefight was excellent but the Halo 5 version with the bullet sponge enemies and needing random cards and loot boxes was just awful.
That intro is so epic wish it sort of carried on at that speed on 1st level would of been better to started the fight big flight fallen
Its dull, although 5 is the best. Halo just looks and playes dated. PS: and stop with the net speak ''Hate'', it sounds so wimpy and delicate. Differing opinions, get used to it.
Well looks like your stuck then with digital downloads and no cheap old couch games from the 360, borderlands collection is good, degrees of separation, halo MCC is on game pass,JuJu was a brill platformer that was free on games with gold in July,kalimba is brill but you will get stressed, left4dead2! Pool nation FX , rocket league, sonic all star racing transformed, speed runners is fantastic! Kameo, unravel 2 , castle crashers, split second, now all these games are good couch games and some not,maybe not all active online, now in the picture please view the 360 games,there bwc and mostly all first person shooters, not all split screen,but brill campaigns, I'm a big 360 backwards compatible fan, crysis is now on game pass,YouTube these games,sorry it would take me forever to go through all the games to see what all is split screen,all the games with stars are bwc
Thanks. I've just got him an Xbox Series S. He's an accomplished fortnite player but I would like to get him into other games. We had a great Halo binge one weekend while my wife and daughter were away. Quality boy time. (y)
Are you play on the 360 or Xbox one?cuz I'll go through my games maro and make a list for you on co-op couch games as there hard to find these days
Halo 5 lacks split screen co-op, sadly. All of the games in the Master Chief Collection have it though.

Just got 15% offered for expired codes. I make that £255 for an Xbox One X and Fallout 76. Best deal ever. :) (y)
They have a live chat on their site.
They’re telling me to contact Microsoft as well, which I did on Twitter, but Microsoft are ignoring me!
Yes all Three. They asked me to contact Microsoft so I did. They told me two codes were redeemed on 13th March and third was redeemed on 1st April at 6pm. I got the codes same day at 8pm. Sent Amazon a screenshot of this and within half an hour they got back with 3 options, return for replacement, return for refund and 10% refund. I replied saying I would accept 15% , they replied in 20 minutes to say its been refunded. Amazon have been very fast in replies, max I had to wait was 30 mins.
Now all I need now is a halo 4 code and I really don't have to get up of my hoop, any one any idea were I could get such a old game?since the disc is only £1 I'm not looking to spend much! But halo 5 is my main game, so I'm well happy with this, just need to sell my disc for £5 locally
Got it thanks
Think all exclusives are supposed to stay on game pass. Not 100% sure though.
Is there a chance this will leave Game Pass at any time or is it there forever?
Yep, this is a digital code for the Xbox store - you can say goodbye to your disk forever :)

2 x Halo 5: Guardians Xbox One £4 (with code) delivered @ AO£4£1471% offao Deals
My order was also delivered as two separate packages. Lord knows why they did it that way.
I chose click and collect but even this was suspect - It looks like the order was sent in two with the game coming later. The order was said to be there, then I got the message about the pricing error. Next thing I got was the star link had been returned too. Wonder if it was the game that was there as well? Guess I’ll never know now
I took delivery of Halo + Starlink thingy by DPD yesterday. I guess I'm the lucky one!
Same here - they need to be informed about UK consumer law. Had a call last night but didn't answer as I was in work.
It's not a matter of clikc and collect being the winner, it's a matter of them recalling them before delivery. Once the item is delivered whether by click and collect or home delivery they can't recall them back

I wonder if this is an re-release for Halo 5: Guardians with labels on the cover or it's just updated picture for websites :/
Got Halo itself for £7...don’t think you could give me £2 to play Super Lucky’s Tale (lol) that being said, lot of games in this deal
No, I sent you a link proving it runs bad on all platforms It's a issue with the game I've not tried Arkham Knight in ages, I heard they've done a couple patches, I think I could play that but not in the settings I'll like, 30fps maybe enough for console gamers but if I'm not playing at least Ultrawide 1080p 60fps I'm going to call that poor performance Just cause 3 has stuttering issues still, it's playable most times but when I blow up a bunch of stuff It's not my PC its the game, Just Cause 3 had Stuttering/Performance issues, Arkham Knight had performance issues on launch
Don't post me private messages, you stated your PC can't play Batman Arkham Knight or Just Cause 3, your argument is invalid...
Hmm your console does has problems with them unless you're blind There was FPS issues on every platform
Obviously your definition of a gaming PC is different to mine. What you have described is a PC that can play games. Any PC can play games, however a Gaming PC is designed to play games at higher resolutions & frame rates. £500 is less than I would spend on a graphics card and for that reason I have decided to stop building a Gaming PC... Will it play Crysis? (excited) I think you have pointed out the problem with a £500 PC - you state it can't play Batman Arkham Knight or Just Cause 3 - my console has no problem with either of these titles @ 1080p. Thank you for confirming my point so well!
That’s what I was thinking

There must be some sort of legal case here that states that when a product is sold 'new' it must be still factory sealed, once it's opened it is then 'used'. Imagine buying a iron or something and then the guy comes from the back with just the box and the displayed iron, you wouldn't accept it would you?
98 GB install, you won't be playing in a hurry lol. Great game though.

£7 for physical copy, free delivery options available.
Ok, what brought this back? I was under the impression this was deleted? :/
Also free on Game Pass, the main reason I bought an Xbox one after years of PS4
For campain/story id say halo 1 was best, reach a very close second and the one everyone seems to forget ODST aint far behind. 2 was best for pvp multiplayer and ODST firefight is a fantastic coop wave mode. 3 was the best one with a 3 in it. I kid, 3 was great, a fantastic end to the story, how it should have stayed. Just think its not quite as good as the others. 4 should never have existed, cant even speak for 5 never played it but will give it a go some time now I have an xbox one I guess.
Still waiting for HALO3 on PC
I had a ps4 so no point keeping both.
