    I enjoyed the multiplayer for like 20 hours before burning out, more maps were needed and reaching Onix was too easy.

        >Because it's easy
        the thing is open world games aren't that easy. My understanding of it is that it's actually quite ressource intensive to make and probably requires a lot of rethinking from a team that exclusively worked on linear fps up to that point, encounter design, map design, interface, and so on: all of what 343 might have learned on halo 4 & 5 was probably thrown out for the open world section of the game.
        you are however correct about the "it sells copies" which is probably why it happened and also why a lot of other franchise previously known for their linearity became open world pseudo-RPG because this industry works by marketing peer-pressure and 343 probably gave up on making a "classic" halo, wrote the bungie-fedayeens as a loss and proceeded to make a game they assumed would have mass market appeal despite the fact they had no previous experience doing this kind of game.

          No, it was not that. The reason they make it open world was to make a game with more/better sandbox , they were trying to make classic halo

            But classic halo was linear with some open/sandbox level design. Silent cartographer was the perfect balance, a well designed level with scripted encounters but also open for some exploration and different avenues of approach.

                The gameplay sucked. The removal of bleedthrough was a mistake and focused on nerfing something in the wrong ways. Movement was even more sluggish than a typical Halo game, and you were pretty much forced to sprint in order to make up for it.
                Level design was the same straight line hallways as any other Halo game. Nothing special, but they had multiplayer maps interspersed into your hallways. There is not a single good multiplayer map in the whole of Reach.
                The graphics were the same brown & bloom shit that was getting rightfully criticized in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Looked even worse with the intense motion blur on the 360 version. Halo 3 genuinely looks way better.
                The weapon roster is full of the same clones as Halo 3, but everything got nerfed into the ground and made unfun to use. The AR taking 19 bullets to kill a player is demonstration enough for that.
                The Firefight mode sucked because it was too self-contained and you could never really make it a survival mode. And you couldn't even try to play limited in matchmaking because it would be outvoted by people who want to fly around with jetpacks and shoot infinite ammo fuel rods.
                Forge is fine. Good for the time, but lacked piece and setting variety and has since been usurped. Forge World was a mistake, the game would have benefitted by 5 separate maps instead of one gigantic one.

                But even if you are someone who barely played CE and cried out the pistol, they literally had the perfect starting point in the last game. 5's pistol was great. So good, they even ported its stats to Halo 3 when they added all the ODST weapons.

                That's been the case with every pistol and every AR for every Halo game save CE. And you can't shoot it as fast as possible because you'll start missing at anything past close range, which is the case for any Magnum in Halo. You need to go fast, but not too fast. It feels great to get the hang of.

        Having your shields shredded at mid range by the AR is stupid as shit considering how easy it is to use

    Halo was never good, it was only good because of custom games and playing with friends, everything outside that was boring dog shit

          343 is Microsoft. When you criticize 343, you're literally criticizing Microsoft. Bungie was its own studio and they carried Xbox to where it is today. They're just butthurt that they'll never amount to Bungie's success so they seethe and continue to sabotage Halo.

    >so fucking close
    not really. the designs are alright, I don't like the brutes' new aesthetic much. the weapons had some duds too, it was a flawed arsenal. the gunplay was definitely good, but then again Halo (especially bungo halo) never really struggled much with that. they got right what they inherited, and they butchered everything they needed to do themselves, e.g. design a good campaign and good multiplayer maps and modes. hard to see how that's close to a success

    5 was better. All they had to do was get rid of slam and charge to make it perfect.

    The guns all feel weak and shitty.
    It didn't even have legs on Ganker.
    People didn't even want to bitch about it.
    They balance everything around it being competitive. Even the campaign suffers from being able to carry almost no ammo and having to switch constantly.
    having to go to the fobs to refill your special weapons is stupid and shitty.

    the game isnt great by any means and it makes me very sad. That said I do still play it and have hope for the future. it just sucks you have to wait 5 years for a halo game to be playable (MCC)
    also just detroyed in infinite ranked since they juiced up MnK a little bit. The curb slide movement and forge maps make the game much more fun

      Mishandling from both Microsoft and 343 higher ups

      the main goal of 343 wasn't making good halo games at all, it was to steal money, basically a nft/crypto scam game but legal; its why SBF is in jail while Ross gets to have a upper class retirement.

    Obviously a nitpick in the grand scheme of things but I didn't like how the UNSC and all the other Spartans were portrayed as useless weaklings desperate for Chief to save them. It felt like they overrcorrected on him getting shafted I'm 5.

      I noticed too. They are turning Chief into space Jesus or something.
      His reputation in canon is getting affected by his popularity outside of the game.

      Of all the issues with 343, their storylines are probably the worst thing about them. They so convoluted and retarded.

    Reminder they also killed Rare, introduced paid online to online console gaming, want to strip all ownership away from the consumer by making everything digital-only on Xcloud and Gamepass, and all off their exclusives are mtx-riddled pay-to-win garbage like Sea of Thieves, Gears4&5, and Halo 5.

    It's also funny that some of you think buying Bethesda is going to save them. Bethesda hasn't made a good game since Skyrim, the rest of their games can't even hit metacritic scores of 80. Let's not also forget they let Bethesda put the Horse Amour DLC on the 360 marketplace back in 2007. If they hadn't done that, microtranstations and other bullshit greedy DLC practices wouldn't even be a thing today.

    Microsoft is the most greedy, anti-consumer, monopolistic, disgusting company there is. Stop defending their shit, Ganker.

    The SERIES ASS is an shit cucksole designed to scam the consumer renting chud indie games and 14 year old 360 games like goyim cattle.

    If you buy and/or support Microsoft in any way, even ironically, you deserve death.
