    Overcoming its deserved reputation after a notorious launch, today the Halo Master Chief Collection is a polished, super-deluxe package of content that successfully links three generations of amazing Halo games together in a way that feels like it was made by and for people who care deeply about this legendary shooter franchise. The enhancements to the campaigns make it a joy to replay Master Chief’s story (and two other UNSC tales as well), but it’s the now-smooth multiplayer that’s worth coming back to over and over again. It’s not just a collection of some of the best first-person shooters ever made, it’s a great redemption story, too.

    I'm a big sucker for bang-for-your-buck games, and the Master Chief Collection (MCC) is easily one of the best out there. The fact you canI'm a big sucker for bang-for-your-buck games, and the Master Chief Collection (MCC) is easily one of the best out there. The fact you can get six good first-person shooters for the price of $40 is an absolute steal. The fact that this bundle includes three all time classics, two great games, and one good game plus the multiplayer for each game is an outrageous deal for $40. My only gripe with the game is the broken co-op campaign in Halo 2 Anniversary. Expand

    No pay to win or pay to progress. You unlock everything by playing and completing achievements. MY CHILDHOOD IS BACK BABY!

    Графен подтянули - это плюс, сделали один удобный лончер для всех частей.
    Мультиплеер я не понял - есть дробление на части, в каждой по миллиону режимов, еще и настройки профиля под каждую часть свои... В общем слишком перемудрили.

    This is coming from someone who never played the originals. Free of nostalgia or bias.
    TLDR; Buy it when it's heavily discounted (around -50%
    This is coming from someone who never played the originals. Free of nostalgia or bias.
    TLDR; Buy it when it's heavily discounted (around -50% off or more) and / or the bugs and issues are fixed.

    - Most of the campaign levels in the games are big, empty, boring open worlds where you're forced to aimlessly drive around trying to figure out where to go as there are no waypoints most of the time
    - The weapons and mechanics are very dated, even in the more modern games and with this remake, however the combat be enjoyable if you ignore the issues and try and play it not seriously on an easier difficulty.
    - The game has player collision and friendly fire. I have no idea why some games do any of these, they're just annoying and make the game worse...
    - The co-op campaigns have a lot of issues, either being laggy, disconnecting or just not working in the first place. The devs have said that they don't see any issues with the co-op and are not planning on fixing it
    - Also no spllitscreen
    - Audio is very weak and not many options. Certain aspects of the game are too quiet and muffled, namely some voices or gun shots
    - Took me 3 or 4 times to even download the separate games as they kept uninstalling themselves
    - Playing with the older graphics mode on is discouraged since you'll miss out on extra details, lore and achievements

    There isn't really any noteworthy positive things about the game, it's just okay.

    Spawns are sh*t on many maps. For some reason a spawn trap situation emerges where one team ends up spawning at rubbish locations. LobbySpawns are sh*t on many maps. For some reason a spawn trap situation emerges where one team ends up spawning at rubbish locations. Lobby system is pathetically bad at matchmaking. Teams are rarely balanced. Map choosing is non existent and random map selection means that the same map ends up being picked over and over again. Team spawns are completely unbalanced in some maps. Multiplayer is a complete disaster just by looking the drastic drop in players. Just what is 343 industries doing? Expand
