I got the same impression from the marketing campaign - that there was corruption within ONI (I mean the start of Halo 4, from a perspective, kind of alludes to this). The storyline that you put forward is pretty good, and is a game I probably would have enjoyed more than Halo 5's campaign.iArcticFire wrote:Right? With the direction Hunt the Truth seemed to be going, I was hoping the main enemy in Halo 5 was going to be a corrupt ONI. I think that would have made a much better story, and that would really flip things around for Halo. Blue Team could team up with the Arbiter, to fight the corrupt ONI, eventually convincing some of the UNSC like Lasky to realize the truth about ONI, and take Blue Team's side against them. Then you could have Team Osiris be these ruthless bounty hunters and mercenaries hired by ONI, and sent to assassinate Master Chief, the rest of Blue Team, and the Arbiter. They could have made you switch off (EVERY LEVEL), between playing as Blue Team, and playing as Team Osiris, eventually ending the game with you playing as Blue Team, the final boss being Team Osiris. As Team Osiris you'd be fighting a lot of the Arbiter's forces in an attempt to find him and assassinate him, and then as Blue Team you'd be fighting ONI soldiers and ONI mechs / robots. Eventually Team Osiris would find the Arbiter, but just before they fought him or during their fight, Blue Team could step in, take out Osiris and save the Arbiter. Halo 6 could then be about finishing the fight against ONI, and dismantling them.STRAY morais wrote:why doesnt 343 try hiring some better storywriters because Bungie's story mode were a lot better.
I still enjoyed the Halo 5 campaign, but thought it was very thin - and man, as the main protagonist, I usually like to have more CHIEF with my Halo campaigns. I also think 343 missed a lot of events that happened elsewhere. For example, with the end of Halo 4, I thought the Didact would be coming back in Halo 5 (I mean, he didn't exactly die). Only after I finished Halo 5 and did some reading online that I found out that the Didact was killed elsewhere after Halo 4. I really liked the Didact as an antagonist, and Warden is nothing more than a pain in the backside. Sure he's formidable, and trying to kill him on legendary can be painful, but the repetitiveness of his fights and appearances make him look like nothing more than a jealous, overprotective boyfriend of Cortana's. Here's to hoping 343i pull off a great job on Halo 6 by bringing the Halo ring back into it - fan rumours saying the flood will be back? I like that idea.
