|In "Halo 5: Guardians," the Halo franchise explodes onto the Xbox One with a story mode that features two main characters, Master Chief John-117 and Jameson Locke. With multiple difficulty modes and some cutscenes that are only available on the highest of these modes, this 10-hour story features a high level of replayability. Once you've finally completed the story mode, the action continues in the game's various multiplayer modes. With more than 10 different cooperative modes available, there's something for every fan. Along with all of the brand new weapons and accessories found in the game's single-player mode, the multiplayer mode also features exclusive weapons such as the Arbiter's energy sword. Guardians is an Xbox One exclusive that offers an extended campaign and endless hours of action on Xbox Live. Halo 5 continues the story from previous games in the popular Xbox series. The game focuses primarily on Master Chief, the leader of Blue Team. After completing a mission to secure a derelict station, he receives a cryptic message from Cortana. John-117 goes AWOL, and Fireteam Osiris is charged with tracking down Blue Team and capturing John. While pursuing him, Osiris comes under attack by Promethean, as well as Covenant forces later on, fueling the action. In between the action, gorgeous cinematic cutscenes tell the story in high-definition fidelity. While Guardians is the first entry in the popular franchise that does not support split-screen action, it replaces this feature with a variety of other innovations. This is the first game in the franchise that emphasizes squad-based combat and tactics. Unlike other games that featured the player only briefly accompanied by allies, the gamer is supported by NPC squadmates in single-player mode; in cooperative play, other gamers take control of these characters. Each squad member has exclusive special abilities that can be used to the player’s advantage. New gameplay features were also added, including Spartan Abilities. One of these abilities is that the players’ armor has been outfitted with various thrusters to improve their movement and combat abilities. The weapon sights were refined so that all weapons allow players to view down the barrel of an iron sight when zoomed in. Halo 5 also saw an uptick in combat difficulty. In order to defeat a diverse array of enemies, gamers will have to adapt and change their strategies over the course of a battle. They'll need to learn to rely on their squadmates and issue strategic commands as well. This allows for a broader range of gameplay and keeps the action and fighting tense, which is essential for a first-person shooter. Although "Halo 5: Guardians" ships with a number of multiplayer maps, an additional 15 maps are available as free digital DLC for everyone who owns the game. There are a wide variety of multiplayer options, including both cooperative and competitive modes. A new mode, Warzone, allows for a four-on-four matchup between player-controlled teammates and AI enemies.|

Good game but needs some improvement for the next game.
The graphics are outstanding and the the game play smooth. But the story has room for improvement it has gaps in the story and meaningless dialog unless you are vary young in which case you should not be playing the game. I do hope the next halo game has a better dialog to match the story. despite this the game is vary fun to play as a co-op team in campaign and the mulity player so to me it is well worth the money and time.

No split screen
I am or was a huge fan of the halo series until Halo 5. There is no way to play the campaign or live with two or more people on the same console. I bought this and a new xbox one for Xmas and what a huge disappointment. Not only does it hurt to have to shell out all that money for the console, game, extra controller, live membership, but it is a kick in the nuts that they pulled this crap. I called microsoft support because there had to be a mistake and the rep told me it was in fact true and that he too thought it was a really stupid move on their part. I have decided to sell the whole xbox one setup and game because of this greed and stupidity. We will be going over to the PS4

If you're an old campaigner like I, you might've heard disparaging things about this entry and may have some reservations. Firstly, the "4 hour campaign" reports are an abject lie. Unless you're playing four person co-op on "Easy," this is no four hour undertaking, it's a fully fledged Halo game that honors the series in every way. It's fairly obvious that multiplayer was the focus, as the radar and scope zoom have been cut in half at least (leading to some pretty irritating situations), but once you get the hang of it, it works pretty well. Yes, Jackals now scream in Muppet English and Prometheans taunt similarly, but when you get past the "Borderlands" plastic/everything glows aspect, the whole thing feels very canon, and that old CE sensibility comes back. A ton of care has been put into this and I'd rate it as slightly better than the dry, compromised feel of 4. Give its campaign a chance. As for the multiplayer experience, I leave that to the young people.

Halo 5 Review
Graphics and Story are pretty Awesome.. I didn't play the multiplayer parts of the game but I did finished the Co-op campaign with a few friends.. It doesn't have as much content as Halo 4 (such as Spartan Ops) but I still loved it. I had seen some people complaining about the Campaign being "too short" However, IMO this is not true. It is plenty long, enough. If you can find a good deal on it... Get it! You won't be disappointed. After all, it's Halo!

Awesome game and changes made
I really did hate the changes at first (faster online play, sprint, rocket boost). But as you "get over it" and actually put some time into the game, these changes makes this game way more fun. The weapon balance, recoil, and sound effects are the best Ive ever seen. Halo has a "Zombies" online mode you can just select and play online, among all the other notable variations like "Griefball".
