First-person shooter games currently flood the video game market. And there is one title that is responsible for starting that revolution: Halo. Since 2001, Halo has become a household name known for improving its storyline in each ensuing title. Here is another look at some of the best Halo games of all-time:
Halo: Reach may be the most imaginative title in the series’ long and storied history. The concept revolves around an ongoing battle between mankind and aliens in the year 2552. A gamer’s mission in Reach is very simple: save the earth. Once the task is comprehended, users are in for a real treat with this game’s pace and graphics – some of the best the series has to offer. The combat in Reach is top-notch as well, a big reason why the game remains popular seven years after its release.
Halo 5: Guardians
This was the very first Halo adaptation to premiere on the Xbox One console. There are many mixed views on this version, although most are positive. Fans rave about the storyline and graphics, while critics take issue with how quickly the tasks are completed. The only thing gamers could agree on was how advanced the multiplayer platforms had become in this game. Despite initial hesitancy, Halo 5: Guardians took home the prize for best online multiplayer at the 2015 OXM Game of the Year Awards.
To a large portion of gamers, Halo 2 is seen as a disappointment. It is only viewed that way because this title was given the impossible task of following the very first installment of Halo. Truth is, nobody likes a sequel – it never lives up to its predecessor. Once diehard fans of the first game moved past that, Halo 2 is a very good game that actually improves on several aspects of the original. The multiplayer was seen as top of the line during the early days of Xbox Live. The cliffhanger ending may have been polarizing, but it definitely built the anticipation for Halo 3.
