Halo 3

Halo: The Master Chief Collection [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

A collection of four Halo games should have been a cause for much rejoicing for Xbox fans. However, somewhere down the development road the team behind the game collection forgot what made Halo successful the first time around: Multiplayer. Without a working multiplayer at launch (or indeed for a week afterwards) this game feels half-complete.

The Pros: 

+Halo 2's visual upgrade is nothing short of stunning.
+Having the ability to go through all 4 main Halo games again is awesome.
+The menu navigation and selection is slick and easy to use.

The Cons: 

-The game was released before it was completed.
-Multiplayer is still having issues getting started a week later.
-Playlists should be customizable, instead of just preset.

While we might not hit every single game for review, I'm sure some of you have been wondering where the Halo: Master Chief Collection review has been. It's understandable, especially considering the fact that we've live streamed several hours of the game on our Twitch stream. So here's the down low: We received a review copy of the game about 2 weeks before it came out, however there were issues with the multiplayer/co-op that were going to be addressed in a patch.

Bulletstorm's Newest Trailer Has a Spoof-ful of Halo 3 In It

If imitation is considered the sincerest form of flattery, then Epic Games and People Can Fly's newest trailer for Bulletstorm is a dead-on homage to Bungie’s "Believe" diorama trailer for Halo 3. Though a hilarious tribute that has been tweaked with Bulletstorm's  sick sense of humor. 

There is also a short montage of kick-ass game footage at the end of the humorous trailer.

ODST provides a lackluster side-story for the Halo universe

Overall Feeling: 

Bungie got fed up with making smash hit titles and slightly tweaking the game to improve upon a winning formula to take a gamble on a different genre of game while being forced to stick to the Halo name.

The Pros: 

Nathan Fillion does a fantastic job of voice acting one of the main characters, and will keep you entertained through the cut scenes of the game.

The Cons: 

The game falls short of being a successor of Halo 3, while failing at striking out to become a more realistic and adult shooter. It's also extremely short, with virtually no replay value. It feels as though this should have been a DLC side mission rather than a full priced retail game.

Over the course of the last week I’ve been playing through Halo: ODST and mulling over my feelings for the game. Being a fan of Halo 3 and hearing they were going to take the series in a new direction I was considerably excited for the game. I made a point to go nab a copy as soon as I could. However, I’m disappointed to say that the best parts of what make Halo are mysteriously absent from their reinvention of the series.
