So character customization?

So I noticed 343i had dumbed down customization for your characters, to body type, helmet, and visor, is there a reason to why they did this?

You remember the song when you were a kid.“head, shoulders, knees and toes”? It might be not related to that lol.

Halo 5 has more customization than Halo 3, and no one has complained much about that games customization options. They opted to go for a large variety of more distinct individual suits that look coherent as a single piece.

Pretty much this. Less on individual pieces, and more on sets. More cohesive sets of armor.

So where did emblem customization go? Yeah. Thought so

Comparing Halo 5 to a game released in 2007 (right?) isn’t really a good thing to compare it too. Lol

Seeing how people used to use the previous customization to make inappropriate emblems, and then use those emblems on the forums? I approve of this move.

When it’s the bar for what most people consider the “best” Halo, what else are you going to compare it to?

Better than Halo 5 constantly being compared to the MCC.

True, but Halo 5 still has plenty of customization for a modern FPS. Compared to Black Ops 3 where there are duplicates of the same operative characters on the same team. And from what I remember in the beta you can’t customize their look, but you can put skins on your weapons etc. And don’t get me started on Battlefront, I know we haven’t seen that games player customization but everything about that game looks underwhelming so i’ll leave it at that.

The emblem customization however is a problem I will admit, i’m okay with the nameplates and emblems being merged. But I really would like to pick and choose the colors I want instead of having preset color schemes.

i cant wait to see whats in the final product, i think its to early to complain about what you can and cant do in a game that hasnt been released yet

Isn’t that exactly what you’ve done when arguing for the return of features (namely playable Elites)?

Every halo is considered the best, and the worst by so many different people. I love Halo 3’s campaign, but Reach’s mulitplayer will always be my favorite. Halo 2’s campaign is definitely my favorite though

I just to wear a Mister chief armor in halo 5 multiplayer.

That’s a completely different debate, kinda disappointed you’re defending a downgrade, especially with all the perks of “next gen” gaming.

I wouldn’t really call it a downgrade when the number of possible different Spartan armor combinations is larger than the number of players that have played Halo ever at the peak of the franchise’s lifetime.

Sure Reach had a “lot” of “options.” But majority of it was fluff. There were only 30 actual armor sets in Reach. Then they recycled the same helmets dozens of times over to add “variety.” I believe the worst offender had like 27 permutations of the same exact helmet… the only difference being a different little flashlight/antenna on each one…

But give players the ability to change each piece instead and now imagine how many more possibilities, something that they had in Halo 3, reach, and 4.

Why though? Just because? I’d like you to imagine any scenario where you’d actually use all 1.6+ million combinations. Majority of players won’t even utilize 1% of that in their Halo career. And then imagine that they already said they would be adding even more armor pieces in the future. As the saying goes, sometimes less is more. And I’d rather have a selection of hundreds of varied armor sets that are unique than being able to mix and match between only 30ish sets like in previous games.

So comparing to older games is acceptable only when the newer game is lacking in some capacity (however superficial it may be); but when the newer game is better than the previous, it’s not a sound comparison, but rather is “disappointing”?

Quite the double-standard you have there…
