This game looks so good. The Enhanced Games makes 'old' games brand-new and very enjoyable to play! Having a blast with Halo 5 and GoW 4.

My favourite enhanced game, it's amazing what they did with this game. AC: Origins and Forza 7 are impressive too, but the way now Halo 5 looks and plays on X, its just real next gen.

You didn't like Halo 5 so your solution is to make it more like the worst Halo in the series?

Halo 3 was my favorite.. then again, I've never been a mega fan of the series. Have a soft spot for that one since it was the last midnight launch I went to.

The XOX is the only time I've ever bought a console not realizing what I was getting was the actual start of a new console generation. Halo 5 is impressive, but what made my jaw literally drop out of my head is when I fired up Madden 18 yesterday. It looked like a real NFL game. They actually hit uncanny valley.

I need to re-buy Halo 5.

I've seen this game get criticised for having low res textures before. Seems it was just resolution holding it back (along with poor texture filtering).

For me on a personal level, these are the reasons Halo 4 and 5 were nowhere near as good as Halo 1-3:

1) Too many new things from COD. I don't need a sprint in Halo.
2) While the characters essentially played the same, I just want to be Chief, damn it...
3) THEME TUNE. The music isn't anywhere near as good.

And that's it... For me, anyway. Yes the MP was balls, but that's because they decided to try and make it the same as everything else, rather than the same as, well, Halo. I play my Halo for the single player mostly mind you.

But yeah, the music... Its just not the same... And I think that was the biggest problem for me? I just wanted to hear that damn song again... Such a shame...

1) Bungie?
2) Bungie again.
3) We'll have to agree to disagree on this one. While different, the H5 soundtrack is exceptional, and stands very well on it's own. Also, there's no Breaking Benjamin, Incubus, or Hoobastank, so that's a huge win for H5.

The biggest thing going against H5 was Hunt the Truth. While fantastic on its own, it was almost nowhere in the game, and set expectations off in the wrong direction. Had there been no HTT, the campaign, while still far from perfect, would have been better received. But again, this is just reminiscent of criticism Bungie received for the H2 marketing.

Halo is unique in a way because it seems no fan can agree on the “good” and “bad” Halos. 343 can never win. For me
Halo 1 - Loved
Halo 2 - Loved
Halo 3 - Eh
Reach - absolutely hated
Halo 4 - Loved
Halo 5 - best multiplayer since 2 with a let down story

This was the first X1X game I tested on Tuesday. I was blown away by how sharp it was and seeing the detail that was always there, to begin with, was great. Say what you will about 343's Halo storylines, but their technical achievement with Halo 4 on X360 and Halo 5 on X1X cannot be stated enough.

I don't hate personally Halo 4. I actually like it, but you are right. Halo Reach is NOT the worst Halo. I hope MS gives it the X1X treatment like they did Halo 3.

Halo 3's campaign was way better than Reach. Reach's plot just felt like a rehash of ODST (Get this thing from A to B). I spent more time on Reach MP than Halo 3 but I don't think both stand up to Halo1 or 2.

Fantastic video analysis & props to the team at DF for keeping the Xbox One X content coming.

I'm glad that some folks will be inspired to revisit or enjoy the campaign for the first time thanks to this update. H5 clearly isn't the best Halo entry in the series but it's a fantastic shooter and plays brilliantly when taken on its own merits. It's easily one of my favourite games this gen.

I was in the middle of a third play through but now I'm going to hold off until I get my X and start all over again.

It does look a ton better, but still underwhelming graphically to me.

Awesome update though.

Hoping MCC gets just as much if. It more care into it. Especially Halo 2 Anniversary.


Reach really needs either added to the collection, or at the very least a 4K update like Gears 3.

Halo 5 has the best multiplayer in terms of the way it feels to play. The maps aren't anything special and it still falls short compared to 2, but things like sprint, ground pound, and shoulder bash make the multiplayer more exciting to play.

The one thing I don't like is that there are no vehicles on non-btb maps. I understand the reason why, but miss playing 4v4 coag.

I mean, I have the game on PC but I only have a 1440p screen so I don't know. Maybe I'm just not a fan of Destiny 2's art direction...also Halo 5's world is more intricately built because Destiny is so much bigger and therefore more copy/paste as far as assets go.
