The campaign is worth every single penny plus your physical wallet. The amount of effort put into the campaign is simply top-notch. It is a must-play if you don't mind cosmetics and really look forward to gameplay mechanics however, multiplayer is a good play too the problem is outside the actual gameplay. The battle pass is there but the grind is real. You don't feel like you're progressing and it feels like a real chore to get through the pass. Lastly, the store itself is obscenely a cash grab.
4/5 stars

The graphics, gameplay, and movement all felt like they had improved tremendously from previous Halos. The good parts of the game come from the developer's understanding of their audience. Big team fights, deathmatches, and capture the flag among others are consistent with Halo and gave me nostalgia. However, the game is really demanding on your PC. Also, the challenges, since you get a lot of people not playing the objectives and instead of playing to complete challenges.
4/5 stars

Interviewee 3: Choorda
My first impression of Halo Infinite was great, I loved the graphics and also love the competitive ranked side of it. The good things about the game are the game modes, they are very fun. I enjoy the 4v4 the most because it doesn't get too crazy in-game. What I would say is bad about the game is that the elo that you gain or lose for each game isn't very good at this point, also they need to work on the hitboxes a little more because sometimes hits don't register.
4/5 stars

Interviewee 4: MSWS
Haven't played it much however I think Halo Infinite simplified combat and gunplay a little too much. The multiplayer could be fun with friends but otherwise fun to play. However, I still prefer Counter-Strike though!

bt: you get a lot of people not playing the objectives and instead of playing to complete challenges.

This seems to be an issue on objective maps in most MP games. I think just fixing the points system would help. I've had 10x the objective and place second with 1 less kill.... :rolleyes:

Thank everyone for the reviews! Considering it but my machine is struggling.
