Halo 5 Xbox One – Convoluted & Unfulfilling

Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One Product Review

Halo 5: Guardians is Microsoft’s latest addition to the popular first-person shooter series Halo, and is rated T for Teen.  This was the worst Halo game I’ve played since Halo 3: ODST (formerly known as Halo 3: Recon).  Halo 5 is hampered by underdeveloped characters and a poorly written story.  I despised Microsoft’s decision to reinvent Cortana as a villainess.  I wasn’t at all pleased with the Master Chief’s almost puppy-like faithfulness to Cortana ,even when she was at her worst.  The multiplayer was too difficult for me to completely understand, and it had no clear goal.  Overall this video game wasn’t very fun to play.  I wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone.  Perhaps if you’re a fanatical  and devoted Halo fan you might buy it, but I would still advise anyone to rent the game before buying it.

 Overall Score: 4.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rank Halo 5: Guardians as a 4.  This is due to the significant flaws in the story of the game, and the underdeveloped characters featured in the campaign mode.  Challenge Cortana if you dare, but beware The Warden Eternal!
