sessgawd ripped it apart. and he's a goat in the review space, i believe him
Sounds like he's being a contrarian fakkit for clicks, or he has an agenda from his tone. He sounds like a bytch whining.

I mean he just didn’t like the last half of the game as much as the first. He said it became repetitive, he didn’t seem like he was being bias

Maybe it's just the way he sounds.

It’s coming but my guess is that it plays like shyt on the last-gen consoles so they had no choice but to delay it. I cant possibly imagine the campaign running splitscreen on an OG Xbox 1:heh:

I feel like if you can have multiple enemies on screen why can’t you have the extra co-op friend ? It can’t be that big of a deal

Somethin ain't adding up :patrice:


1. the campaign aint out so redactors aint played it.

2. im on the Halo reddit so know what the drama was. users were threatening a 343 employee(Sketch), doxxing people, etc because they were unhappy about the Multiplayer progression system to unlock armors. xp boosts, n fixed playlists. nothin to do with the campaign or reviews. also the reddit was locked before campaign reviews even released. it went back up yesterday tho.

When you do split screen co op, the game essentially has to render twice. play perfect dark on the n64 cop op n watch them fps dip like hell.

its the reason Halo 5 aint have co op cuz they entire games mechanics was built to be at a locked 60 fps no matter what. an increase or decrease in fps would break hit detection n stuff, hence why its never got a Series X boost while MCC did.

For two people to play splitscreen the console has to essentially to run the game twice to account for both players. Even though both players are in the same area interacting with the same enemies, the graphics card has to run both screens fluidly while the CPU is accounting for both players actions and how they influence the game.

You also have to account for players separating and exploring different areas that the game then has to load simultaneously and display on the same screen. What if player one is inside shooting a bunch of enemies while player 2 is outside in a banshee way up in the sky? The Series consoles can probably manage it, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the base current gen consoles make it a near impossible task. I think OG xbox 1 can only play this game at 30 fps as it is:picard: Meanwhile Series X can seamlessly swap between 60 FPS & 120FPS at any time in the menus.

Along with the rise of online gaming, I think this is the reason why splitscreen gaming has somewhat died in the past several years. Most games are doing too much to have a legit split screen experience. The few games that are splitscreen nowadays typically aren’t very graphically taxing, like Borderlands. Gears 5 has splitscreen co-op but those are more linear levels with much less mobility throughout combat. You’re not using the grappling hook to quickly repel 3 stories up and jumping around climbing anything you see in a large open area
