H4 or H5: Has 343 Outdone Themselves?

Simple question:

Which of the two 343 Halo games do you think is better: Halo 4 or Halo 5?

Personally, I think they’ve improved in some areas such as multiplayer, gameplay, musical score, campaign play spaces or set pieces … and not so much in others, such as story.

I think Halo 4 wins hands-down in the story department. But on the other hand, Halo 5’s campaign feels more fun to play. It’s bigger, grander, and there’s more to do, explore and look at.

Halo 5’s multiplayer beats the pants off of Halo 4’s in terms of competitiveness, but I am a big fan of Halo 4’s multiplayer. I like Halo 4’s simple gunplay and casual chaos (yeah, I know, noob, right?) it’s just good fun. But I do like solid competitive play more and that is also more important for a Halo game to have. It’s critical, really. And as a big fan of Halo 2, I think we need to return to that, and Halo 5 has.

So I think overall, I have to go with Halo 5.
