Hardcore Gamer 100

"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.


so just because an other reviewer had an other opinion the guy with the higher score god bought??

off course only for ms games

For the first remark you made, I'm not really sure what you are getting at. All he is saying is that it is such a good game that it is destined to be a top system seller. What the fuck is wrong with that?

P.S. And you're not allowed to use the f-word on this site.



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

So the aussie guy couldnt be the fanboy?  This colection does set a bar for remakes collections  Thats undeniable to anyone...the amount of content and a proper remake, not a simple upgrade.

why did polygon not take the money on forza horizon2? did they forget?

give a rest. just for one day.

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.

I don't think his hate is related to MS at all.

I dont think he was talking about him.

He is a joke that shouldnt be on metacritic at all. And i personally believe you shouldnt share his links as his reviews are primarily for clickbait in the first place.  What Im saying is dont promote him by sending out links.  Ignore him completely.  He is one of the many reasons you shouldnt take metacritic as an all defining number

Is he talking about me?

But my comment wasn't a dig at MS... it was a dig at the review site lol.

Or am I missing someting?

I think it might have been aimed at you. However It's interesting that Bethesda, Microsoft and Sony have all blacklisted this guy and refuse to send him out review copies. Sony recently sent him driveclub though.
