(NOTE: Keep in mind that this review is based on MY experiences and MY opinions: your mileage with HMCC will almost certainly vary.)

Wow, what a disappointment! Nearly a week and counting, the multiplayer as of Sunday November 16th, 2014 is still not working on my end. Never mind bugs and glitches; I can't even connect to an online match ... not one! This is what I pre-ordered the game for!? Halo's multiplayer has always been one of the most dependable online gaming experiences for me; to watch this launch week fiasco unfold is inexcusable.

Yes, the campaign modes are playable and all, but for fans who have already played those modes numerous times, this is little consolation; besides, from what I've heard, the campaign modes have got plenty of bugs of their own, including disappearing save files, achievements not appearing or disappearing, glitches and freezes during gameplay and God knows what else. As much as I'm curious about the remastered campaign of Halo 2, I'm not going to invest my time in a campaign mode where I may lose my saves, fer'sure. In any event, everyone knows the biggest draw of Halo is multiplayer ... and when that mode is busted, you've got a gimped game, at best.

UPDATE 1: 343 and Microsoft have stated that there will be an update to fix the multiplayer, to be released on Wednesday, November 19th; meaning at least another half week of busted mutliplayer, with no guarantees that the update will fix everything; what a mess!

UPDATE 2: Microsoft and 343 have announced they are pushing back the patch yet again, from Wednesday 11/19/14 to some unspecified time towards the end of next week. Ugh.

UPDATE 3: On November 20th, at last a patch arrived from 343. The end result? Some aspects of multiplayer are finally working.

I love Halo, I played every single release multiple times. I'm extremely disappointed in this release! Many many other reviews already talk about how multiplayer is broken -- and it is. Long wait times in the loading screen, missing levels, no leaderboards, etc. But not a lot of people are talking about how broken the co-op mode is. I wanted to replay the entire series with friends and discovered that anyone who isn't the main host (the person who invites others) ends up with a significant (1-2 second) input lag that makes the game unplayable! Sure you can play the campaigns alone and most things work, but that's not what most of us want to do!

3.0 out of 5 stars If you want multiplayer, WAIT! November 12, 2014
By Justin
Platform for Display:Xbox One|Verified Purchase
Single Player:
Got this on release day, as for differences to the single player campaign alone, this is instantly worth it. After not having played Halo 1 since early 2000's, I still remembered every bit, and being able to swap between that generations graphics and the updated versions amazes me. I find myself always hitting the button to see the difference every 5 minutes.

Extras:
The Halo channel that shipped with the game is fantastic. Nightfall, documentaries and behind the scenes footage of various projects is always interesting to watch. Very well organized.

Multiplayer:
Review incomplete. I purchased this game to play multiplayer mainly, and since release, have only managed to get into 3 matches. 343 Industries has released server side patches but with no results as of yet. Ranking systems are offline, map options in lobby dont match to what you may be playing on. Big Team rounds for those 3 games I played were only 6v6. And some achievements are not displaying correctly for some users. They have alot of work to do, which is to be expected for releasing a broken multiplayer experience. If all you want is multiplayer, wait until you hear fixes are being made and are ACTUALLY working. For that reason alone I give 3/5 stars. If you can enjoy all the campaigns until you get a completely working title, the purchase will be worth it, I have no doubt in my mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised. 343 missed the mark. December 3, 2014
By John B
Platform for Display:Xbox One|Verified Purchase
3 stars because the game was released unfinished. The constant problems with online game connection has been at the very least disappointing. Halo 2 looks great and really shows what 10 years of console improvement can do. If you like the PvP aspect then I would not buy it as it has been useless to find a match. Buy it if you want the campaign for the Halo series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shameful Example of Incompetence. REFUND is in Order December 1, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox One
This game is a disgrace for Microsoft and for the video game industry. Whoever was in charge of developing this game and overseeing the quality control should find a new job. Other games for the Xbox One have not had multiplayer issues, so there is no excuse for releasing the game before it was adequately tested. They should refund everyone who bought this, or give a free copy of Halo V when it is available. Shame on Microsoft for using your customers as beta testers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Game is broken November 25, 2014
By Jackson
Platform for Display:Xbox One|Verified Purchase
The updated graphics and new cut-scenes are great. They look beautiful. However, the multiplayer aspect of the game is simply broken. You will wait for upwards of 10-15 minutes to find a match and sometimes you will be unable to find one at all. 343 has stated that they are working to fix the problems but the game at this point, does not work. Stay away from this game. DO NOT BUY. How this game was released in the state it is in now is beyond me.
