I have thousands of hours in H5. The major issues with the game is the broken aiming system. The multiplayer could have been very good, but the broken aiming system made it a chore to play and 90% pistol shooting, annoyng as -Yoink-. That aside, I did not dislike the movement implementation, I liked the idea of the spartans literally devouring the map, but the aiming system made it too taxing to play. I truly believed that people pointed their finger at the spartan abilities because they did not realize that the bad aiming was what made these SA so annoying. As a metter of fact, the beta was much better than the final game, cause the aiming was still classic.Quote:Yes it is slow. I play apex I play cod. And your literally slower as a spartan then a normal human? You have no cool abilities as a super powered soldier now. And as for a lot of you who didn't like halo 5. Il bet you didn't give it a chance. And if you didn't play it you have no clue as to how skillful and nuanced the game was. I didn't like the campaign. Ok. I liked the multiplayer. Yes there trying to make it a combination of everything. But halo ce was 20 years ago and I did play the hell out of it n every halo. If you didn't like halo 5 your probably just not a very good player n your happy now because the game will be easier for you. But I'm telling you it's not good for the brand that the prequel to infinite had more abilities, and endless possibilities in combat. Compared to this. If they just kept the dodge. That alone would of separated it from everyother shooter. And say nothing for lore continuity. What they could do all this stuff as Spartans but now they can't. Read a book see what a spartan can actually do. Like they took abilities AWAY. Copied apex with a grappling hook. Big deal lol. It's not unique. I've already played this multiplayer in reach. N countless hours of it. Do you really think this game is going to pull top streamers and pros away from other shooters that are more fun? N more skillful games? The game literally went backwards. What about having a counter to the sword or hammer with a one pump shotgun. I like the bulldog but they didn't have to throw out the old guns. Where's my dmr. Where's all the promethian weapons? U don't make a sequel on a new gen console n PC. With less in it then it's precessor. Halo 5 was victem to a bad time in Xbox. N a bad campaign. The multiplayer was the best thing I ever played. This is a betrayal. But go jog around strafe n shoot each other with little else Todo. See how long that's fun for when we are used to games giving us so much more. N I guess forget what the Spartans could do. Did you know about spring jumping? Using the crouch jump n float mechanic to get to higher areas? The dash slide jump to get where your going fast n I'm sorry. But I played the flight the 4v4 maps are not smaller. The halo 5 maps were not bigger like people keep saying. They just are not. There exact same size. As halo 5 4v4 maps so some of you simply don't have the facts correct. It's a step backwards in what I could do in the game. It's been years I expected it to change. But I also expected some semblance of continuation. And a lot of fun abilities. I hope it's better when it drops cuz right now I'm just saying if I'm saying anything. It's not gunna compete with these other games. You run faster in call of duty for God sake. Spartans can run who knows exactly how fast there's been different instences in the books. But there very fast very strong. Very smart. With incredible reflex's and eyesight due to augmentation. Now I just feel like a guy with a helmet in. But ya it's gunna be fine. At least all you sprint haters can now play a unskillful game n feel good cuz u can finally get a few kills withought them escaping you. Guess what try n get away from a good player in Halo 5. With all those abilities. You couldn't. Your nostalgia for 10 to 15 year old halos has devolved the series. When people don't play much compared to more fun shooters I won't be surprised. I'm gunna play campaign give the multiplayer a chance. But I think I know how it's gunna feel from the flight. Frustrating. The aim assist is messed up. Frame drops. The guns don't feel right. The abilities are few n far between with a limit on how many times u can use them. It's just the old way. They coulda been brave and evolved halo 5 n still made consessions to make people happy. They didn't need to totally change it AGAIN. every halo is getting the rest button hit. It's not good for it. They had a good multiplayer in Halo 5 they shoulda built off it while balancing wat was o.p. but they're being cowards. N trying to please everyone which is impossible. So enjoy your halo 3 sequel. That game is from a gone era. Halo was always the pinnacle of movement meets aim n good decisions. Now it's certainly not the best movement game nemore. Whatever enjoy using a spartan who runs 10 mph. That's not the chief that's not a spartan. That's a normal guy in really heavy armour. It's to hard to explain. But the loss of a higher SKILL sealing is the biggest let down. You won't need to b as good in this game. So people won't grind. Youl see
That said, after playing Halo 5 for years I switched to PC and therefore I only got the MCC, and classic halo to me is funnier. Couldn't care less about the books. The gamplay has depth because it's well thought, not because it has two hundreds movements. It's what you could do with simple basis that made it so engaging. That's how the great game in history were made. Deep, not complex.
Oh, and by the way your whole point seems to start from the idea that Halo 5 was a huge success. It wasn't.
