Halo 5 Guardians





Halo 5 Guardians 


We had a reader request come in to review Halo 5 Guardians. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming rented this violent first person shooter on the Xbox One. Microsoft Game Studios would not give us a reviewable copy since we refused to promise a high score. This game has to install on the Xbox One, and is 46.1 gigs in size. It took over two hours to install this game. Why can’t we just play it off disc?

Halo 5 Guardians is pathetic for local play. It has that dreaded and despised online game modes that drain the Internet usage, and cost families in ISP fines. The only normal game play mode in Halo 5 Guardians is the lame, repetitive, and boring story mode. This is the second Halo game I have played. My favorite Halo game continues to be Halo Wars. It is less violent, and deserves the thirteen and older only rating.

How did Halo 5 Guardians get the ‘T’ rating instead of the ‘M’ rating that most other Halo games get? Preferential treatment? Corruption at the ESRB? Whatever the case, I disagree with the rating. To me Halo 5 Guardians is a seventeen and older only video game. There is so much blood, gore, violence, and more in Halo 5 Guardians that it earns the macabre and morbid rating. There is also some borderline enticement to lust content in this game.

The game play gets repetitive. We can pick up alien weapons, use vehicles, interact with security devices. The voice actors are good, especially Richard Castle. Reviving without re-spawning is nice in the fifteen chapters of Halo 5 Guardians. Friendly fire can kill your character, and my eyes got tired from playing this first person shooter. I found Halo 5 Guardians to be hard, and short. Melee is better than targeting specific spots on the enemies.

Halo 5 Guardians feels like being on a battle field, and murdering all of these sentient beings. The storyline is recycled. The Guardians are the bad guys, and make me wonder if Halo 5 Guardians is an attack on Christians. I hated having to change characters so often. How is it alien vehicles and security consoles allow humans to activate them? To me Halo 5 Guardians is worth around ten dollars.
