Halo: MCC review thread! UPDATE: Reviews incoming - 87 metascore so far

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Halo: MCC review thread! UPDATE: Reviews incoming - 87 metascore so far

Despite/Becuase of this... Halo moves up yet again to number 3 in hourly sellers, number 5 for November, was Number 11 for October and up to number 52 in whole of 2014 chart. It isnt even out yet!

It is going to be so huge. The pre-orders here are way off.

88 is really good. Highest rated Xbox One game thus far I think.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

So we should review all games coming out now to the standard of the year 2020 and then when 2020 comes, we can easily compare all the games released up until that point on the same scale! Anything after 2020 we can review using 2030's standards and do it all over again.



I bet the Wii U would sell more than 15M LTD by the end of 2015. He bet it would sell less. I lost.

Lol. I'm very excited for MCC but all of the games have already been released soooooo not really caring about the Meta....

88 after 20. Still one of the best scores this gen and something not many games I have seen coming in the next six months will achieve.

Could sneak uo to 89 or 90

Dont see it going down by the end as I think reviewers that have taken their time are mre likely to give a psiitive review.

I don't know why people always forget the bad reviews come at the end

Thats not a review.  Its a steaming pile of horse shit.

This games reviews will improve over time.

Did not top 90 . No buy for me because I have played them all and own most of them already.



Reviews are having a good effect on sales anyway. MCC is up to #3 on US Amazon..ahead of 2 PS gift cards. First time I've ever seen a non-discounted game ahead of the PS gift cards. Not even CoD could do it. This is gonna be huge

"This is the definitive first-person shooter experience, a no-brainer purchase for the vast majority of gamers, and the first true system-seller of the new console generation."

Oh that's not a fanboy writing right there, oh no sir, no. He even mentioned the sales, what's that got to do with a review? Very trustworthy review. Not saying the game can't very well deserve a 100, but c'mon, don't be so obvious.

"Sets a bar that other remasters and collections will have difficulty reaching, much less topping. For players new to Halo, who have missed any of the included games, it is a stunning introduction to one of the most beloved series in video games. For Halo fans, it's a package that shows almost as much respect and affection for the Master Chief as they do."

By Arthur Gies. This guy is definitely on MS payroll. Seriously. It's so obvious by everything he writes. Sets a bar so high it will be difficult to top? Then why, oh why, we can easily read other less moneyhatted opinions saying something like the following....

"Despite an unhealthy smattering of technical concerns, Halo: The Master Chief Collection really is an essential purchase for fans of the series, whether they’re in it for the campaigns, the multiplayer, or the best of both worlds."


"Unhealthy smattering of technical concerns" Let's say the guy exaggerated a bit, maybe, it still doesn't sound to me he would write about this if there wasn't at least some glaring and evident technical flaws. How is that even close to being the new "benchmark" as Gies calls it? C'mon, don't be so obvious, take your money man, we already know you're deep into their pockets, but don't insult our intelligence like that.

I really think this guy spends hours a day digging up sh-t on MS. Nope that is not negative enough, I must continue, I'm assuming it's his side job.
