    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.

    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 :)

If you'reThis game is fantastic but destroyed by a broken multiplayer. If you're buying for the single player campaign, you can't go wrong. If you're buying for multiplayer, I urge you to wait until it's fixed. Multiplayer is probably the most unacceptable gaming experience I've ever witnessed. I genuinely would give this game a 10/10 but since it's broken and only half the experience it should be, i give it a 5. Once the game is fixed, the score will change. Hopefully they can fix this mess... Expand
