Halo Infinite is Overall a Good Time


The Halo franchise is very near and dear to me. It has a special place in my heart. Halo 1 all the way through Halo: Reach has all of my love. I put more hours into those games than I have any recent FPS shooter ever. Halo 2 being my favorite out of the franchise. I think Halo 2 is a genuine masterpiece and is in my top 3 favorite games of all time.

So how does Halo Infinite rank in this franchise? Is it one of the best Halo games ever made? Let’s find out. 

No, but it is a good game. It is significantly better than Halo 4 and 5. I recently played both of those games and Halo 4 was alright, but Halo 5 was a hot dumpster fire. That game was just a stinky mess. The story was awful, but at least the gameplay was fun and the multiplayer was a good time.

Halo Infinite has a lot better narrative than Halo 4 and 5. The multiplayer is a lot more fun. So let’s get into it. 

The biggest thing that Microsoft was boasting about Halo Infinite was their open world. They are taking Halo in a new direction and that direction is a big open world. That right there is my major, and honestly my only, complaint about the game. The open world adds absolutely nothing to the game at all. The open world is big and really empty, and you do the same generic mind-numbing tasks at different locations in the open world. 

The gameplay is fun, killing enemies is fun, the story is very good, and Halo Infinite is overall a good time.
