Bungie made halo and did the unimaginable, the first halo game was a great game and when we asked for more bungie added more, they put in what we wanted, halo 2 brought in the playable elites, energy sword, dual wielding and new vehicles weapons etc. What 343 did with halo 4 was good but what they did with master chief and the main purpose of halo was changed. They changed master chief into a soldier who talked in every cut seen they went to someone who didn't talk at all into someone who talks alot. The purpose of halo was to stop the flood destroy the halo rings. And then 343 decides to get ride of the flood get rid of the rings and bring in a whole new thing. But if 343 does something with the next halo game with mendicant bias or something amazing happens I believe that bungie made the better halo game
Halo was perfect until 343i came along, (Halo 4 wasn't all that bad) But it is just bullshit, most Halo players where in it for the story mode, 343i doesn't give a shit about story mode, if you think about it. The human-covetant war era of halo (Halo reach-Halo 3) Was not all that designed for multiyplaer, but did have some aspects to it. The reclaimer saga on the other hand is aiming for that "multi player" scheme but Failed at it. The reclaimer saga completely drew away the old halo fans, and fucked up the fanbase a bit to, The reclaimer saga of halo just isn't "halo" (IK what your thinking). There 343i ruined my favoritie game, and if you disagree with me there is proof that this isn't biased look at the dam yes list (bungie) compared to the no list, (343i). Another thing I don't like about the reclaimer saga is that it is too advanced (yes IK what your thinking) but the jump is fucking massive! And if you look at the new armors to? DISGUSTING. Look up "Halo 4 wetworks" (DISGUSTING). It would be better if 343i worked on destiny and bungie work on halo rather than be reverse.
343 has the worst campaign, they want you to buy armor with real money, they focus on online mode, they didn't compress Halo 5, MCC had 4 campaigns, with 2 remastered and 4 multiplayer modes, and it was 45 gigabytes, while Halo 5 had one campaign with one multiplayer mode and it was 50 gigabytes. Bungie was a lot better in everything.
Ok the only reason why halo is popular is because of Bungies version of halo. Not 343's. And Spartan III's did wear SPI armor, but Noble team was an exception. George was the only spartan 2. The reason why noble team had mjilnor was because of the noble team's exectional abilities and skills. And Noble was on reach because they were assigned there. The spartan III that were on Onyx was the gamma company. Which were trained by other older spartan III and II. So look up some lore before deciding on what you think. But anyways, Bungie had stories. 343 focuses on the multiplayer and not the story of the game. I personally like games with stories. 343 has terrible story and bungie has good ones, if we are talking about multiplayer, then 343 could possibly (if they fix a bunch of bugs) have better multiplayer.
Maybe one day microsoft will wake up and realize what they've done and get bungie back on board. But i wouldnt count on it. Halo WAS one of the greatest games of the xbox line up. It's the game that brought to the other side from PlayStation. It's just sad that it went from that to a game that in the last 2 installments i didnt even care to finish campaign. And I'm not even gonna discuss the multiplayer aspect
Originally I hated 343i because of all the negative reviews on Halo 4 and 5. Now that I think of it, 343 isn't that bad. Halo 4 was a little confusing for me but I still enjoyed it, even though it was crazy hard! Out of preference, I like Bungie's art style/atmosphere better, particularly with Halo 3: ODST. It's really not a big deal to me. The Halo universe is what it is, and I really really love it!
The thing that made Halo multilayergreat was the slow paced stategy combat, you had to watch your back while also trying to find a better weapon. The storyline on Halo 4 was good but it didn't have enough levels where the maps where light colours, most of the maps on the campaign were dark and depressing. Theres also many other things i would say, but thats for another day.
In Halo 1-3, it was nice and old and very military futuristic, the marines too!!! In Halo CE, there is a huge fight and introducing the Flood, and Halo 2, it introduced Brutes which was a big enemy, Halo 3 was the best in my opinion with the best marines in futuristic boots, the terrifying flood, the enemies small boss fights... Halo reach was a good one too, but the last... There'll be another time... It had every modification to the armor, your modified armor was in the campaign, Emile carved a skull on his helmet to proof he was a killer machine and those helmets weren't a million dollars, THERE WAS DOLLARS IN THAT AGE!!! Sadly 343 ruined it, with it's metallic gun shots, reloading, and getting rid of guns and brutes and the flood! Why the forerunners fighting against you? With their terrible nights and there is too much metallic gun sounds and the marines!! THEY WERE RUINED RUNNING AROUND IN NERF ARMOR ESPECIALLY HALO 5! And now they have spartan abilities, they are against each other, some weird multiplayer death ding and their death animations... It's just ruined...
Bungee had better grasp on game design in general. Halo 4 May have been just a subpar halo campaign, but halo 5 is abysmal. Halo 5 May have a good multiplayer, but it is surely not halo, it's honestly is just a variation of cod. Bungee had good campaigns and God like multiplayer.
Bungie makes better Halo games than 343. Because, then know how to make a good Campaign story line than 343. 343's Halo 4 games takes place 4 years later and Cortana said "A lot can happen on 4 years". I want to know what has happen in that gap and how they lost they Alliance with the Covenant.
I don't care what a bunch of biased reviews online say, Halo 3 was absolute garbage and actually kept me away from the series for a long time because I thought there was nothing left in it for me. It's back to having some promise and some good showings, Bungie no longer being responsible helped the series drastically.
Back, in the day I loved Halo for what it was. Me and my sibling playing split screen. Then Halo Reach came along. Every single thing about Reach was broken. Noble Team were Spartan III? No. Spartan III's wore SPI armor not Mjlnor. Then Emile is scratching a skull in his million dollar helmet because it looks "cool". The Spartan III's weren't even on Reach. They were still training on Onyx while reach fell. After Reach I lost hope in Bungie. Then I found out another company was making it and I was so grateful. Halo 1-3 are still good but I would not want Bungie pulling another Reach.
I Love the first 3 halos , but , halo reach is shit, everything is broken, like, who in the hell would scratch a skull in a million dollar Helmet just cause it looks cool?! And 343 did great getting rid of the flood. Only complain is that halo 5 doesn't have split screen, but That's okay
