Who agrees that, technical restrictions put into effect to ensure constant 60fps aside, ALL of the problems with Halo 5’s campaign is to do with it’s story/dialogue/characters etc. Basically, the narrative experience of Halo 5 is arguably the worst of the series. It’s simply not a great ‘Halo game’.
It’s a fun FPS!!! A bloody fun FPS!!! As restrictive as the level design is, they’re well designed with plenty of weapon options scattered around them and a bunch of intricate little routes allowing for various tactical options, the squad AI is surprisingly good (9/10 they always revived me when I went down) giving you choices of how you handle each firefight, the combat is fast and ferocious, some of the vehicle sections are among the best of the series, the (admittedly few) new enemy types nicely complement the others, the battle chatter is frequently interesting and, perhaps most importantly for an FPS, EVERY gun feels great to use.
Who agrees that as a standalone narrative experience, as the next step of the Halo story and most crucially as a ‘Halo game’, Halo 5 is VERY disappointing but as a solid well made FPS campaign with exciting combat it’s a stellar game???
An underwhelming Halo game is still a fantastic game.
