Great game but missing some things to make it best
I was very pleased with multiplayer and campaign was decent. Issues with campaign were it had no split screen which I understand many older Halo players enjoyed to come over to their friends' house...Read complete review
I was very pleased with multiplayer and campaign was decent. Issues with campaign were it had no split screen which I understand many older Halo players enjoyed to come over to their friends' house and maybe play a game of multiplayer or co-op campaign. Different boss types besides the Warden would be nicer but, besides that the game is really neat!

SP Campaign needs work

First, I buy games for the SP campaign and co-op experience, not MP. Halo has always delivered in this aspect until now. Among the ramped-up graphics, sounds effects, and large scale story line are undeveloped characters, short plotline, limit MC interaction, repetitive bosses and gameplay. The SP campaign is short and there really isn't any immersion where you care about what is going to the point of emotional involvement. This really could have been game had it lived up to it's marketing campaign. I briefly tried out the MP experience, but I'm not interested in throwing myself at the same objective over and over with no tactics or team coordination. I lost interest quickly and decided that I'd never purchase a Halo game on release day at full price again. I can only guess why the SP was neglected, and my guess is that the eSport MP segment was deemed more lucrative, so the campaign was quietly relegated to the back row of the theater.

Not a good Halo game, 343 disappoints yet again.
No splitscreen, UI is awful, campaign has a cliffhanger that wasn't earned, all of the character development is in the books and expanded material, the game has microtransactions and launched without infection, grifball, assault, Oddball, etc. and to this day, Halo 5 still doesn't have Race, King of the Hill, 1-flag CTF, juggernaut, and more.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Terrible for a HALO game
By Kyle Stepback
Halo use to be an Iconic, amazing video game that was highly respected by everyone. Halo 5 is a disgrace to the Halo title. -No splitscreen -Tiny amount of content at launch -awful campaign and story, which is weird considering how amazing Halo 4's was -Multiplayer is way to focused on eSports, the Halo community doesn't care about eSports whatsoever. -The UI is awful, so many glitches, so "Sell all" button for REQs, often doesn't let me back out of lobbies when given the option -Ugliest armor in the franchise so far -The customization has gotten a major downgrade since Halo 3, Reach, and 4. you can no longer change your emblem backgrounds, indivisual shoulders, legs, or wrists.
Waste of money
The campaign is absolute trash and the multi-player is repetitive and boring. I was a huge halo fan but this game has turned me away from the series
Spartan Abilities and fantastic multiplayer
The newly added spartan abilities add entirely new strategy while playing multiplayer. The spartan charge, levatate, ground pound, and "juke" moves make the game feel much more dynamic and allow for greater creativity. The multiplayer system works really well, with a wealth of game modes and maps. There are really two different multiplayer games in one title here. Arena is what we have all come to expect from halo: close quarter 4v4 capture the flag, slayer, and the like. Warzone takes a more battlefield approach, as it's 8v8 on large maps with tons of power weapons and vehicles. The game has abandoned split-screen multiplayer, which is questionable, but overall they have taken the multiplayer to a whole new level of dynamic, and often cinematic, gameplay.

Doesnt do much for long time fans of the franchise
There are some welcome innovations like smart-scope and clamber, but overall this is largely a different experience than what we've been used to seeing and have come to expect from Halo games over the years. The campaign, although very beautiful, is less than interesting, and the multiplayer aspect of the game, although well designed, is where the game (in my humble opinion) completely misses the mark in terms of what Halo's multiplayer should feel like. A lot of technical things were done right, at the expense of having a vision grounded in the distinctive experience and very unique aesthetic of the previous Halo games we were raised on. With new twists added to familiar elements this could have been a 5-star classic but it feels like there isn't quite enough familiarity here to warrant a real emotional investment. Very thin soup for the long-time fan.
Misses the Mark
Some major flaws in gameplay: -You get stuck on objects, lips, etc... -The bouncing off of objects instead continuing forward momentum like you would in the real world. -Spawn Killing wasn't fixed from the 360 days! -Spawning on the other side of the map on Firefight- takes a minute to get to the enemy. -It will put you halfway into match on the loosing side. So instead of having a chance to win, you are doomed to loose starting a match. I have a feeling these major gameplay flaws won't be fixed in Halo 6 either. I can't believe even after all this time these fundamental issues haven't been fixed. I guess it's the norm with these new games. Half donkey their creation and charge extra.
By Must ask why
Disappointing campaign (yes, that is still important to me 343) with a bad storyline. Was excited for the next Halo game, but gonna hop off the Halo train now. Ya let me down Microsoft
Best multiplayer fps for console by far.

Multiplayer is very unenjoyable, Okay Campaign
Got this game in the Xbox One S 500gb bundle hoping I'd get a nice starter game for my next gen experience but I couldn't have been more wrong. The moment I loaded into the slayer game mode on multiplayer, (My second favorite in Halo 4) I only ran into people that used Rocket Launchers. It got old fast so I quit the game early to save my self some anger only then to find out that I had been banned from online for 9 hours due to quitting early too many times. Menus are very confusing if you don't know where anything is then have fun finding any customization options other then armor which is only unlockable through req packs. Only thing I found enjoyable about this game is the campaign. The story line is okay but I wish it would have focused on Master Chief a little bit more than it did.
