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 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.

 

 


Oh but I take lots of rests, on the contrary, you never do. I wonder why that is? Looking at everything you post makes it very clear. If you want to talk your nonsense don't do it to me, go save the internet and Microsoft for someone else.

Metacritic 88 isn't a bad score for a collection and I still feel it can reach 90 when it all settle, what baffle me is the 95 of TLOU remastered. That remaster clearly doesn't beat this one both in value and in the amount of work put in updating the games. TMCC should also sell significantly better.



lol @ people won't play the campaigns.

Halo fans love the campaigns. And now they all have online co-op.

I will eventually buy the game so I can play through Halo 1-4 with my oldest son. Gonna be amazing. Especially since the first two were the only ones I already played through.

Why? Halo 2 remake sure. No one can deny the work they put into that. But a collection? Almost no one is going to play the other 3 storys and you know it. At most play halo 2 story once and thats it, multyplayer only. They should have just made this game halo 2 remake with all the maps from the other 3 games and save on production cost. A collection is worth it if people plan to play the content wich will not happen with this game. like the metro redux, bioshock 1+2, god of war collection, and others like that. Like I said before, its like making a call of duty collection or a sports game collection, it dosent matter cuz people will only play the multyplayer and thats just a bunch of maps and for sports nobody touches the old version as soon as a new game releases.

I disagree.

I believe people will try what is new first and maybe play Halo 2 MP more at start but after they will play the others games too.

You missunderstood. I meant they will only play the campaing of halo 2 only. But multyplayer they will play all the maps from all the games.

Tell me you don't believe this. You can't even prove this lol

I said on another post I cant proove it. I tryed looking for an article I read about multyplayer shooters that said they dont play campaing, althou mainly call of duty, but I cant fing it. Im just saying since its a joint fanbase on the xbox that it might have the same outcome. Although im almost certain thats whats going to happen. People will get this for the multyplayer only. Only the fans will care for the campaing. But a lot of people will play the halo 2 campaing.

You know, we could do a bet on this. I'm pretty sure more than the half of MCC buyers will play through all campaigns.

 

We can use achievements as a method of measure.

Nothing you can bring out will prove this.

No I dont. it couldnt be further from the truth imo.

Halo 3 for instance is one of the highlights, looks soooo good in the remaster.

You are overlaying your own opinion on that of halo fans.  Clealry that isnt very wise.


I will be playing all of the games over again, From start to finish, Then Multi-player.

Again, I know I cant. What I read was about call of duty. I said I just asumed that both fanbase are the same on the xbox. Not claiming it to be fact just likely in my opinion.

Very easyly that I can be wrong, so I think Ill pass. But tell me anyways how that turns out, since I dont have an xbox.
