    There's more love and care lavished on The Master Chief Collection than you see in countless other big-money, brand new blockbuster releases. The fact that the games themselves are fantastic fun online and off is the cherry on the icing.

    In terms of pure content, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is simply massive. In terms of the content itself, this package is astounding. Four of the best shooter campaigns ever made, in one box, all running at 1080p at 60fps, Halo has never looked so good. Throw in over 100 multiplayer maps and a bevy of Halo themed extras and you have a recipe for a true system seller.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection really sets the standard for all future re-release game collections.

    If you have never played Master Chief's adventures before or you just want to enjoy its games again, this Halo anthology is a must-have for every Xbox One user.

    Longtime Halo fans get the opportunity to quickly and easily revisit their favourite levels, or jump into a reinvigorated multiplayer; newcomers to the series get the best, most seamless experience of the Halo series.

    If you like games that are so big you can immerse yourselves in them for months, The Master Chief Collection offers excellent value. It’s an absolute monolith of a package, beautifully presented for the 21st century. And with the remastered next-gen GTA V due to arrive shortly, it seems that, at least as far as video games are concerned, nostalgia is the future.

    A bit of a disaster...Why? It's a half-assed, crudely cobbled-together product prone to crashing, lockups (and as of press time) absolutely non-functional multiplayer.

Replay old memories with new graphics and sound effects. The new cinematics really adds up to the game. Plus, you have all 3 other games with it. It's a very good deal overall for only 60$. It's a must have for your game collection on your xbox one.

    The only thing negative things are maybe loading that are too long, sometimes some FPS drop on campaign. Also, matchmaking are broken right now since it takes an eternity to find players. I hope it will get fix soon enough :)

Trilha sonora é magnífica, e por ai vai. Quem tem um xbox one e nunca jogou halo esta perdendo um jogão, recomendo demais. Expand

    The best thing of MCC is that it contains the 10th anniversary edition of "Halo 2" as well as graphically updated versions of "Halo: CombatThe best thing of MCC is that it contains the 10th anniversary edition of "Halo 2" as well as graphically updated versions of "Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary", "Halo 3" and "Halo 4". A visually enhanced "Halo 3: ODST" was also added to it months after launch. The fact that every map and mode ever made for the franchise are available to play online is also great. Add the Forge tools, developer videos and the "Halo: Nightfall" series and you have a title that should be in every XBOX ONE owner's collection. Sadly, the game had many issues with matchmaking and other online issues that made the multiplayer portion almost unplayable. 343 Industries had to continually update the game for months before it seemed to improve. Despite the gargantuan amount of content available on one disc, these technical problems keep it from being a truly great compilation. Without them, I would easily rank "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" with a 9 or even higher. With them, I'd have to rank the game with an 8.5 out of 10 because quality counts just as much as quantity. Expand
