Halo: The Master Chief Collection
why i bought my one
All the halo campaigns with master chief. plus all the maps from all 4 Halos playable in Halo 2 anniversary multiplayer. that's a whopping 68 maps (correct me if im wrong) with remastered audio. A option to press the back button and look at the old graphics and the new in the Halo 2 campaign. With 7 announced old multiplayer maps running a revamped version. Plus dedicated servers that offer cloud computing. Then u get a access code for the halo 5 beta in December. Then Ridley Scott productions brings in halo night fall. Wait and its all on one disc. WOW!!!! Halo 2 is the game that helped create MLG. It made FPS what they are today on consoles. Halo 2 set the bar for competitive matchmaking along with the foundation of xbox live. There was the legendary Halo 3 release. (that's here too) before that was Halo 2 in its prime bolstered a regular of 500,000 players back when xbox live was only 2 years old. I grew up playing this game. Halo is the reason i left playstation. I loved my PS2 until i played 1 match of Halo combat evolved and i was hooked. I never looked back. The reason i own a xbox one is for Halo. I will pay tribute and will enjoy every savory bit of this collection for its unrivaled content at a mere 60 dollars. Cant wait.
I love this game so much I would play it every day of my life! I love Halo and now this made me love it even more!

Microsoft Came, They Saw And They Conquered. Heard about this didnt believe that it was a rumor, I believed it as fact and was just waiting to hear it from the horses mouth. Xbox shutdown down Sony 12 hours before they even said anything about the Playstation. There is nothing that they could bring out this Fall, Spring 15 and Fall 15 that can compete with the Master Chief Collection and then they release of the main event Halo 5 Guardians. Good Job Microsoft you murdered the stage and still kept killing it. Going down to Gamestop tomorrow and pre ordering this
Can't wait for Halo Remaster
I heard great things about Halo 2 so I wait to play that game most of all in the remaster collection
Wait until they fix matchmaking
Ok if you are into halo then you've heard all the news about this game's matchmaking being broken. Its true. If you want to buy this game for campaign then do it, you will not be disappointed. The graphics are awesome and going through the old halos has been a lot of fun. If you want to buy this for the multiplayer (this is the category I fell into) then you should wait until they fix all the multiplayer issues. You will spend more time searching for games and then when it finally puts you into a party it drops you most of the time and the game restarts itself. If you are lucky to get into a match the team matchups are horrible and completely imbalanced. you'll have 5v2 games or the teams will be completely stacked where you have one team on slayer reaching 50 kills while the other team barely reaches 20.. Overall a lot of bugs that need to be fixed. I was so excited for this game and this is the reason I purchased an xbox one. Had I known that I bought a broken game I would have waited..
As most would say in our generation...I can't even
Ok. So I'm one of the younger Halo fans out there, and started getting into the series when my friend let me play Reach. My life changed after that. I played CE: Anniversary, and Halo 3-4. I loved all of them, and I can see why past fans do. But I really wanted to play some halo game after my friend let me play Reach. I didn't have an XBOX 360 at the time, so I was looking for a game I could play at least close to Halo. I got a PS3 for my birthday 1 year later, and have regretted it since. I got an XBOX the next Christmas, and played Halo 4 a lot. The game I've always eyed was Halo 2, because there was a PC version that I could play, but I never got it. Now, instead of wishing I could have played it, I get Halo 2: Anniversary, along with the rest of Master Chief's adventures. As a younger Halo fan, this game is going to give me an opportunity to rekindle all of the things I have missed, and all the things I can look forward to. This game is the reason I will be getting an XBOX One. Sony can have their destiny exclusives...I'll be with the chief.
Iam a Playstation guy. I bought an Xbox One just for this game particularly Halo 2 multiplayer. Enough said.
The Perfect Game For Any Halo Fan
If you own the Xbox One this game is a must buy. I have been a Halo fan since 2002 and when I heard about this game I was WAY excited. The best part of the game is Halo 2: Anniversary. Halo 2 is already a fantastic game, but the enhanced graphics and the remastered soundtrack make it all the more better. Halo: CE, Halo 3, and Halo 4 campaigns still hold up and are fun to play but Halo 2 is definitely where the game shines. The multiplayer is also just as fun, if not better, as it was 10 years ago. It was rough on launch but now almost all of its issues have been fixed. 343 has even announced that Halo 3: ODST will come out free to those that dealt with the poor matchmaking servers so that kind of justifies it. Not only do you get over 100 maps to play multiplayer on in all 4 games, but you also get access to the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta and Halo: Nightfall. In other words, this game is well worth 60 dollars. This game has countless replay value and TONS of hours of gameplay. Whether you are a long time Halo fan or you are new to franchise and want to try it out, you MUST pick this game up.
old vs new
my first console buy was the original xbox. halo was a freebie that was part of the bundle. the minute i played i was hooked. amazing story, gameplay and even great multiplayer. no, a decade passes and here comes halo the master chief collection for the xbox one. now, being a fan of halo i grabbed a copy thinking, okay time for some great memories. i played them all except halo 4. you can notice a difference from bungie to 343 studios. i pop the cd into the xbox (notice i didn't say blu-ray disc) and wait for the game to install. after a lifetime of waiting here we go. popped up halo combat evolved. and the nostalgia was there from the opening credits. everything has changed from the original halo to this new / old gameplay. strangely odd tho no where on the disc itself nor on the xbox one box does it give the high def level nor does it say blu-ray disc. that left a bad taste in my mouth. not knowing if this halo was in true hd or merely running at 900mhz. equal to a plasma tv. but anyway this game is great. enjoy it at your own leisure or just jump right into multiplayer. your choice.
Fun playing through the story missions again. It's worth $60 for Halo 2 alone. PvP match making is not up to Bungie's standards but 343 is working on updates. I would recommend this Halo collection.
