I would like to talk about the good and the bad in halo 5. Yes Halo 5 is a very good game, but is it a good Halo game? No. Now before you rush out and start angrily typing: “HALO 5 IS THE BEST HALO OF ALL TIME!!! HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE IT?” please listen to what I’m about to say. Halo 5 has an incredible multiplayer experience, I’m not a big fan of the new abilities, but they work. Halo 5 was made to accommodate the new abilities and the maps work flawlessly with them. I’m not here to criticize the new mechanics, but something that is making the halo 5 player population drop off the face of the earth. That is…. the lack of content. Halo 5 is missing core features that players are angry about. Here are some things that MUST be addressed.
Ok, we all know the campaign story and narrative were not good. My question is: “Why is everyone only criticizing the campaign?” The campaign is never going to change, ok. It is what it is. We as a community need to get 343’s attention on other things. I’m not saying to not criticize it, but to worry about other features as well.
I am a huge machinima fan. I love watching what amazing content the community can make with these games. The problem I have now is: “How is the community going to make good machinimas if these problems continue?” Why are there no playable elites in Halo 5? Think about it before you answer: “It doesn’t really matter to me, I never play as an elite.” Tough -Yoink-, other people like this feature and it is useful for many reasons. All 343 has to do is copy and paste the player model into a piece of armor you can select. “It’s unfair in multiplayer.” You may say. Then only put it in custom games.
Weapon lowering isn’t even possible anymore. Ya, it works in first person, but the only place that it matters is in third person. Guess what? IT ONLY WORKS IN FIRST PERSON! How is Red vs. Blue going to be possible now? Common 343 this is an easy bug to fix.
Limited Custom Game Options
Ok, why can we not have infinite ammo? Jesus! Why is there no king of the hill, odd ball, assault, one flag ctf, infection, vip, and many other game modes? I know this might be fixed in the December update, but I just don’t know if everything I listed will be implemented.
-Yoink!- the grenade spam. Every time I walk into a hall way, thirty grenades come around the corner. The grenades over all, are fricken nuclear. The DMR is basically a semi-automatic sniper rifle with less damage. The sniper rifle has ridiculous auto aim. Balance these weapons 343.
Ok forge looks pretty awesome. I just think the blocks need better textures.
NO HUMAN FLYING VEHICLE
Over all Halo 5 is a good game, but stop trying to make it seem the problems are not as bad as they are. I hope 343 fixes these issues. Thank you for reading.
