    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.

    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 :)

It's still the classic games we loved 10 years ago, but now the controls feels so clunky and the environments fell barren and lonely. Master Chief moves so slow! I guess sprinting in games has really spoiled me. I joined a random big team slayer game and we picked a map from Halo 2. It wasn't a remastered map either. The graphics were...1080p Xbox graphics. I couldn't believe it. I'm playing Halo 2 on an Xbox One. What's the point? Just release a new Halo instead of this. I'll say it again, it is still the games we played and loved and four games in one is quite a deal, so I honestly can't give this less than an 8. In the end, it's just a little disappointing. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The truth is that the price does not justify the purchase, taking into account that gamepasses give it. It's just another scammer. Expand
