    Halo Infinite feels as immediately compelling and necessary as Bungie’s original games, and is a shining beacon in a year that has felt quite underwhelming in the AAA space. Intense combat and a keen sense of creativity make this a must-play, even if you’re not typically a fan of the genre or even Mr Mean and Green himself.

    Halo Infinite is inevitably going to see a ton of play thanks to its day one inclusion on Game Pass and the campaign is well-positioned to impress. There are plenty of mechanical, enemy, weapon, and story throwbacks for longtime fans to smirk at and the game is approachable, exciting, and endearing enough to potentially win over a whole new generation of Halo fans.

    Like Master Chief himself, Infinite lets its combat do the talking while looking towards a bright future. After that initial showing, we couldn’t ask for more.

    Halo Infinite offers the full Master Chief experience in a big, beautiful sandbox. While 343 may not be breaking new ground with the light open-world elements it has added, it has done a great job of creating a solid experience for new and returning players alike.

    The longevity of Halo Infinite will rest with its multiplayer battles as this is the online shooter the world has been needing. Halo Infinite is the defining project from 343 Industries thus far.

    The gameplay is more satisfying than ever, the new semi-open world format works like a charm, and yet Halo Infinite fails to make its campaign the unforgettable moment we were expecting. The obvious lack of ambition in the storyline, which feels like a prologue, and too many repetitions of locations and objectives in its final third, prevent 343 Industries from reaching the firmament. However, it remains a particularly solid FPS, which should keep you busy for a good fifteen hours of fun and to which you will certainly return with pleasure once the co-op mode is available.

    The game runs away from any grand moment of clarity, skipping over self-reflection and settling for the thrill of nostalgia.

    Certainly one of the best Halo games. Definitely, better than Halo 4 and Halo 5.

Imagine this November-December without Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite. All other shooters failed miserably. Forza Horizon 5 has amazing graphics and it's one of the best arcade-racing games of all time. Xbox Forever! Expand

    The multiplayer part is fun to play. They just did it right! Everyone has a ton of HP, so you won't be killed in 0.001 second like in thoseThe multiplayer part is fun to play. They just did it right! Everyone has a ton of HP, so you won't be killed in 0.001 second like in those other FPS games. Respawns are almost instant, so getting killed is not a big deal. All in all, no matter how bad you are, you're still going to score some frags and feel pretty satisfied.
    Maps are really well designed: things like spawn kills or headshots from the other side of the map just don't happen. There are all sorts of game modes too, like DM, TDM or CTF. Levels are not too big and not too small, you can get back into the fight in like 10 seconds.
    Graphics look great, but performance is pretty bad. Get ready to lower quality settings unless you're running the game on at least a 3080 with a powerful CPU. Network code is perfect: though it takes a while to load, once you enter the game, it feels like you're playing on your local PC. I haven't seen a single lag- nobody is hanging in the air or teleporting around.
    I didn't like the way they designed new Covenant enemies, so I didn't get a singleplayer campaign. Multiplayer is awesome, though, I do recommend it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I played Halo growing up for the story, music, and multiplayer experience. The only thing that I felt was great about this game was the music. The gameplay is pretty good, but that’s it. Story was abysmal- a very ‘tell don’t show’ approach to storytelling. The main antagonist only appears in goddamn holograms until the very end of the game. The game didn’t launch with forge, working custom games, or a dependable theatre mode. (Not even including firefight.) I’m also going to mention the fact that there are very few maps and game-modes, most of which you will get sick of very quickly because they take place in very similar settings as the campaign. I would have rather waited an entire year for the game to come out with forge and working custom games, not to mention the fact that the game went free to play. It’s almost as if 343i doesn’t give a **** about players and only cared about themselves- evidence being the initial state of micro transactions at launch, the fact that custom games is ‘technically’ IN the game at launch- but it doesn’t bloody work! All in all, this wasn’t the Halo game the fans wanted it to be, it’s the Halo game Microsoft wanted it to be. Expand
