Halo Infinite has officially launched but even though it has been 6 years since the release of Halo 5: Guardians, Infinite is STILL making the same mistakes. It is mind-boggling how I even have to talk about and discuss this stuff.

I saw a post on reddit that did a great job of explaining why there aren’t more modes in Halo Infinite and why you can’t choose what modes you play. If you have an Oddball challenge, then you have to queue and wait until you get an Oddball match to try and complete. It could be argued that the lack of modes/playlists is by design to FURTHER lengthen the time it takes to complete challenges.

Halo 5 launched with so little content because (in my opinion) it encouraged people to play Warzone, the game mode designed around loot boxes and overpowered weapons.

So again, the fucking monetization is responsible for yet ANOTHER Halo games abysmal variety of content at release

So many bugs, glitches and weird stuff people cant understand why this is even called by a halo title so let me be clear: this game is a mess (!) compared to any other halo game since CE it didnt show anything out of the soundtracks that felt so *impressing* like any other halo did to me. thats by far is the worst matchmaking system in history and it seems theyre unable to fix it. and as you already said, if i pay money for something = its supposed to work and they cant all it still a beta even after release, but it is still a beta and thats exatly how it still felles like. they called it halo infinite so i bought the campaign which was a big mistake becasue i played it through in 10 hours on legendary and then everything in zeta halo felt like they just did copy past to complete the open-world, but its just boring and im upset they brought out so many good trailers without having complied to it like the different map sections like the sand are or the underwater area like they've shown to us in their cat fishing trailers. Im onyx 1700 and im sick of this game already. the matchmaking in halo 5 was so good compared to it that i cant even compare these two halo types and (frustrating overrated game) the desyncs plus the highpings plus the wallbangs or fps drops people experience is just awful (me included ofc!) please show more of the negative stuff so a lot people know whats really going on and 343 is forced to change things asap. GREAT VIDEO BROSKI THUMBS UP!

So many people are excusing the current progression and battle pass because 343 will “fix it later after hearing feedback”. They had an entire franchise to look back on. They know what good progression looks like. They chose to make it this way to incentivize spending. You don’t “accidentally” make your game a soul sucking grind. It was obviously planned ahead of time so later updates would look better by comparison.

@Melted Plasma I think Carbon was way better than Heat TBH. But Heat was probably the best of all of last decade's games. BTW we're seeing the same happen with Forza Horizon, it's just that they were much more able to cater to the casual market, so a lot of people still enjoy it, but FH5 is currently more broken than Halo Infinite with so many bugs that limit replay factor, and people are starting to realize it. What did Playground do? Publish a post stating they were aware of the bugs just before releasing a patch that broke even more things! Another thing is how Microsoft nuked FM7's release with their anti-consumer practices, and were gonna feature MTX in the game but removed them on the last minute.

@AngelBeatz92 The game is far from smooth, and since this is the full multi-player launch, this is the most bare bone Halo release we've ever received with 20+ years of Halo. We won't have swat for the next 3 months? Forge for up to 9 months? Yet they still expect us to pay $60 for a campaign with a stripped multi-player experience. They are blatantly disrespecting their customer and fan base with this dude. It wasn't that long ago when we paid $60 for a game we got a great campaign and a multi-player full of content

You know what I really hate? The last kind of good halo game I know of that ever released was Halo 4 on xbox 360. Infinite has some promising aspects but it feels like Halo had since then sold part of it's soul to live and get where it is now. These days it feels like everything is trying to replicate Fortnite's success, and by success I mean sales and storefront appearance.

The Stockholm syndrome of people justifying this freemium skin system. We are pretty much getting less content when you factor in the $60 for the campaign and the amount of money they stand to make from the micro transactions. Ask yourself this, if the multiplayer was included with the $60 campaign, but still had the paywall for the skins it has, would that change your opinion?

Thank you for bringing attention to these issues Act Man, especially while progression & customisation have been the big topics of discussion right now. It's incredibly disappointing to see so many features outside of the online matchmaking and academy broken or simply lacking in content. I am glad Forge isn't out yet because it would of been a trainwreck in the games current state. I hope somebody at 343 sees this because it is a great video.

I think the lack of playlist options is all tied to the battle pass. They are purposely slowing down player progression. Some of the challenges to level up can easily be accomplished with the right game mode. 343 nipped it in the butt before it became a possibility.

I cant figure it out, I'd be embarrassed to be part of this development team honestly, imagine being given thst much time and money and the best you can do isn't even a quarter of the content Halo 3 and Reach had. Hell, Halo 4 and Halo 5 were better at this stage.

Halo infinite's gameplay isn't "SO good" it's honestly below average. It feels so plastic and unsatisfactory. The sound of of a Spartan dying sounds like someone just ripped my spine out through my ears. They dropped the ball so hard. I have no empathy for this cold corporation trying to sell me fucking fortnite skins. Snake oil salesmanship at its finest. Way to kill all anticipation I've had for halo infinite before I'm in a fucking match.

I don’t mind paying for the battle pass when the game is free but I hate that 343 is allowing players to purchase their armor. While Halo 4’s multiplayer wasn’t enjoyable it at least had a sense of accomplishment when players earned their armor like Venator. Keep the gameplay and include Reach’s progression system and Infinite would be perfect. Hopefully 343 sees the backlash and changes the leveling up system because the fact that someone in dead last gets the same +50xp as someone in first is hilarious.

Honestly, the customization is where I shake my head. I loved Reach's customization and I was happy to see it back in MCC. It's just overall really well done. The Armor Cores idea isn't a terrible one. It can work in games where you have multiple characters/classes to play around with, where you want each one to feel unique. I feel more like I have to wear separate suits even if I don't like the look. Not to mention the fact that armor pieces are locked to specific armors is kinda disappointing. Like damn, that Buckler would look nice on the base Armor Core they gave me. But nah. Can't wear it. Not compatible. I'm not even gonna mention the Armor Coatings. They're terrible and made with scummy money grabbing intentions. I mean, was it really not doable to just have one Spartan wearing one set of armor that I could customize fully? Was that really too much. Or should I mention the inflexible armor kits? That's just foul. What do you MEAN I can't make a Jun/Jorge/Carter Hybrid Frankenstein of armor? PLEASE!!

9:05 - The reason why they focus on player retention... is to have as many "attention events" as possible. Instead of "one big launch" and then just smaller updates, they want to have a "huge event" for each "piece" they can launch as this causes people to re-get back into a game versus losing focus. It's 100% intentional to keep people talking/thinking about it, instead of "well, players don't like so much content." They KNOW players do, and want to merely maximize the number of "new content" events for a game to get more eyes on it more often.... Which fucking pisses me off. I wanted halo 3 level of quality, content, and then have 60% available at launch to choose, and then the rest as unlocks and then have them release NEW stuff that hasnt been in halo / in past games, and then improve on the foundation. They apparently don't give a shit about halo being the face of xbox / microsoft gaming, and want to instead focus on max profits at the expense of game quality / player satisfaction. They can't even beat a 2007 game... fucking sad.

The Duality of Halo Infinite man... This game, at its core, is awesome. There's no doubt about it. It's gameplay loop is just so spot on. 343 took Halo's OG gameplay designed and modernized it perfectly. The game is just so fun to play, yet, the progression, and LACK OF MAPS, MODES AND WEAPONS (did 343 completely forget about Halo 5), makes this launch very underwhelming. But well, if the core gameplay is 10/10, lack of content can just be fixed with future updates, right?

@Midnight, I agree with you completely. The lack of coop, and MP game modes like firefight for example is seriously disappointing. I was also hoping they would take another crack at Spartan Ops in terms of an MP coop episodic story where you complete objectives and not just shoot waves of enemy or PvP. I know many didn’t like it but I thought the idea was great, it just lacked on execution. The gameplay is there, the customization is very nice if not sparse but that is clearly being added to. Let’s hope they sort their crap out and add a lot more to this potentially epic game soon because it could be epic. Campaign DLC included, the base is there for it.

Yes, Bungie's Halo: Reach is the gold standard for Halo multiplayer. When I bought Reach on Steam for the Master Chief Collection, I was sorely disappointed with the lack of content that was standard when Bungie was running the show... and don't even get me started on the horrific sound system. I promptly uninstalled it shortly after and haven't gone back. For me, Halo ended with Bungie's version of Reach. Everything after is a pale imitation of its former self.

I've been out of gaming for at least 7 years, nothing has changed it's getting worse. Why people clamour to get a game on day 1 I'll never know, it's guaranteed to be unfinished. For any new game you're excited about, you should probably add at least 1 year on to the release date in your own mind since that is when all the features and bugs will be sorted out. If everyone did this instead of wanting early access to beta test games for companies, the developers would sort themselves out.

Yes. Thank you for covering the stats. I think it is incredibly underrated and a very important part of any system that is expected to have any longevity. People need stats and leaderboards with a lot of filters. People will quickly feel like its ground hog day if they cant track meaningful progress or changes. Sometimes people want to be #1 on the leaderboard for kills with the gun everyone hates.

Honestly one of my biggest issues is just that the UI is so cluttered and confusing. Why is it so hard to just put things out where it's easy to find them instead of nesting them in a 3-4 menus? The lack of lobbies is also a big question mark. To me, it seems like a lot of the decision making that went into the design of Halo Infinite was corrupted by the sheer volume of single match battle royale games, so questions of lobbies and game modes just completely smoothed over because no one thought to add them due to their absence literally everywhere else for the last decade basically.

Big Team Battle matchmaking is broken, it's like 1 game loads per 20 tries. Progression is capped and after getting to the end of the battle pass (lvl 100) there's not much reason to play (besides events & 4 fun). The same weekly challenges that can be done in 1-2 days time easily. I got to the end of current seasons battle pass on the 14th december - so every xp I get since then does nothing. They should fix this or be legally forced to pay back all the credits I've (or you) bought. 343 are real piss-ants imho & it seems they don't want you to play their game all the time, just 2 days per week 🤣

Tell your other UKvid partners to do the same. Your basically giving 343 the hard data they need to fight. Couple of good poles: Who likes the progression? Who thinks the store is overpriced? Who has purchased things at the store? Whos willing to boycott the game? Who IS boycotting the game? These are golden nuggets man. Tell all your UKvid partners to do this and with enough data we'll see if we can scare those stupid executives. Good luck spartan! OG Post: robert morales

I really like Infinite’s gameplay first time we’ve had a more classic feeling Halo in years. The monetisation and progression are just awful though. When I heard the multiplayer was free to play I had a feeling Microsoft were going to milk the playerbase.

When people have to earn shit by playing, or completing challenges it’s not only more rewarding for the player earning it, but also more respected by fellow players.

I think it's hilarious that 343 constantly capitalizes on Reach nostalgia but never attempt to match Reach on any level. We're now being sold Reach armor, in fact we're being sold pretty much all customization. Without battle passes, what you can customize is basically a visor, one chest piece, and a helmet? It's hilarious that they think they'll maintain a population if they lock the fun things like customization behind paywalls and not providing basic game modes. They said there'd be no fomo type things, and yet with the fractures event, fiesta goes away as well, sooooo, modern day gaming indeed. I know I'll be playing the campaign for a while, but the lack of customization, game modes, ability to choose game modes, bad progression system still. I honestly doubt I'll play this game as long as I did the other Halo games. Maybe I'll keep playing MCC...which is a sad statement when a new Halo game is out

I agree with all of this, I just come from the 2nd generation of games that were made to be great from 2001-2011, and I’m so fatigued from trying to stop the change of the gaming industry from the past decade. I know this sounds so depressing but honestly, we have been trying to stop this overall modern gaming change since the end of the 360 generation and it hasn’t really budged. I have kind of accepted that this corporatization of games and less focus on the artistic perfection has to run its course before another renaissance of gaming comes in. Hardcore fans like us can scream as much as we want, they know we will always come back. It’s the casuals that need to stop dropping their money on everything so people in the industry will see the money stop and try to make something new again. Until then, less focus on fleshed out games and more focus on paid cosmetics will be the norm.

Love your commentary on the competitive matchmaking options in Reach being the gold standard, but I think what made that game the gold standard was the cooperative matchmaking playlist. I fucking loved playing Grifball (even if it completely fucked my k/d ratio), and action sack was one of my all time favorite modes. Like, I remember coming home from a shitty day at work one time, firing up action sack, and the game was a forge-created version of skeeball, with golf balls the size of your character, and the weapon was golf clubs (same size and abilities as the grav hammer). Objective was to hit the ball up in the cups, and team with most points wins. That shit was soooo goofy and fun that I was laughing my ass off and completely forgot about how shit my day had been. And honestly I feel like sometimes the developers forget that sometimes I just want to blow off some steam after work. Anyways thanks for the great vid!

I was having fun with halo infinite too, and was actually thinking of it more as a beta and didn't realize this is technically the "Day 1" release. You know, when you look down at your legs, you still see the friggin missing half of your upper body that you're not supposed to see in first person view. Also I'd love the MCC style, hold aim/toggle behavior. I've gotten used to needing both. For some reason, the PC verison of infinite only supports toggle or hold to aim.

After I finally get a chance to play this game. I lost interest with it after a few matches. I started with Halo 3 back in 2009, and I got to say I'm for what wasn't broken or a problem with the game. I feel like with infinite they tried to push too much again for the multiplayer. Each game 343 made just doesn't sit right with me or can really make me feel like my 12 year old self. The microtransaction on armor customization really is the definition of modern games being terrible. I know the whole team color thing was taken out, but I don't have the options to pimp out my spartan with it. I'm going to say this which will lead to a lot of disagreement but 343 just can't replicate what Bungie did back at that time. Wether it's because of the new gaming era where Halo can't work in this environment, or creative direction.

Map making in forge and additional modes and maps that will added through updates. The main issue I have had is the leveling system. It’s so god awful. You do great, get the most points and kills in something like odd ball.....50xp you already played 6 games so you won’t get your 150 or 100 just 50. For being the best in the team or lobby and or winning or losing without any additional exp just sucks

I don't think halo infinite is lacking content because it's a trend among games in recent years. But it's because the multiplayer is free, when I heard the multiplayer was going to be free, I thought "oh, that's really cool" but now I'm thinking that it really downgraded the game as a whole. Imagine what weapons and vehicles would have returned to play around with in the campaign, the game modes and forge features. But to assure the longevity of the game, I'm guessing much of the content seen in past halo games was reserved for later.

I love halo I been playing halo since I was 7, during that time I always had that dumb look on my face when playing halo and I always enjoyed it. This halo seems different it released with very little content and I agree with you on that but to me that was enough, we got the game early and I couldn’t be happier, yes there were some issues like leveling and TTK but to me it was a halo experience that I been missing. Halo 5 didn’t feel like halo and I got the deluxe edition with the “cool” exclusive you get, but I wasn’t halo to me. This halo feels like it the gun play is different from every game that released during this time just like halo CE did back then. It would have been nice to have more content but we need to enjoy and be happy with what we have, for heaven sake we got the game to release early when was the last time that happen. And yea there is some issues when that happens but that’s the price to pay when you get early release, But at the end of the day this is my opinion and you have your own opinion and I will always respect yours and every one else opinion cause at the end of the day halo will be a game that’s sticks out with the rest and not blend in like a needle in a hay stack. Halo will be different and I will always like it that way and other people might like that too

@Fort_ Oink A hellreigel is something you can actually use in-game in BF1. Not a fair comparison. That said, I do not want unlockable weapons in Halo. If anything, I would rather all guns be unlocked for everyone in Battlefield. I know what you're getting at though. I just don't think it's necessary. Grinding is not fun. Short-term satisfaction is more than enough for me. That's why I still play games like Team Fortress Classic. I don't get long-term satisfaction the way you do, because I don't play multiplayer games long enough for there to be a need for that. I'll play maybe one or two matches a day, if I even play at all, and then go do something else. The only long-term satisfaction I receive is in the progression of my own skill level.

​@Dennis Bradstreet "How do you not see that as a problem?" ... *How dense are you?* First off, before I focus on your _strawman._ You realise you're piss ass arguments have gone from _"Streamers are a good example of why its a big problem"_ Which you did not even bother to counter any of my points on beyond "it was just an example" to _"YOUR DEFENDING 343!"_ which you have not bother to prove despite me prompting you to. And you're now on _"You don't see it as a problem"_ Lets be clear since you don't want to bother reading over what I've said before making your point. I started off by saying that it didn't strike me as a huge priority. Then when prompted I made it clear there is other stuff that were actual big problems, at least in comparison. Everyone having the same shit in a month or so isn't anywhere near as bad as shit that is *actually* effecting the frigging game's quality, ya know, the lack of game modes, the lack of choice in game modes, the absolutely fucked microtransactions and lets not forget about Coop and Forge being delayed. Which will hurt far more then lacking a system that calls you a "SUPER GUARDIAN ELITE COMMANDER" after however much play. _So lets be absolutely clear._ *At no point did I say it wasn't a problem*, I have in fact called it a problem several times now in this comment chain, I have even fucking agreed with someone that it should be super quick to fix. Please put in the effort to pay attention to what I've said instead of strawmaning me.

I'm a gamer who spends so many hours playing video games 24/7 when I was 15 to now I'm 20. I know there's way too many issues with games nowadays that I have to faceplate and say good bye to new games and I don't care about new games. Modern gaming does suck. Especially when you look at CoD Then at halo then at other games and have a thought "Why the hell do they even think it's a good idea!?!?!?!" CoD vanguard for example. Is just modern warfare graphics and system in the fucking ww2 CoD! The campaign isn't bad but my freaking gods -_- it's ass at rhe same time. Then battlefield! Just why!?!?! Modern gaming devs are just idiots. Whatever their planning will just make the game be forgotten. I swear 8 spent about so many hours playing Halo Reach and kicked ass. Modern warfare 2 and 3 I kicked ass. Black ops 1, 2 I kicked ass. Battlefield 1, 3, 4 I played and had moments of fun. Each game has their own flaws and moments but when releasing games and showing beta you better prepare for the long term when the game is released which is "more content on release" Edit: modern gaming is same shit of the repeats. Which is another reason why I even play specific games than other games.

Is very clear why they didn’t give us lots of options for multiplayer. They made certain challenges incredibly grindy in order to encourage buying challenge skips. A lot of those challenges are centered around getting kills with difficult to get weapons. If they added modes where you start with snipers, grav hammers, etc. They wouldn’t be able to sell challenges skips as easily. I’m guessing Fiesta served as a analysis on how much more casual modes would affect the challenge progression rate. Tying progression into challenges and essentially challenges only was purposeful and insidious. It actively limits their ability to give us the content we want.

I think my problem is not exactly the (fairly expensive) cosmetics; I actually said: well, at least, the gameplay is fun... But the BIG problem I have with Halo Infinite multiplayer is the very limited variety of game modes, several and frustrating bugs from being unable to play with my friend to the program crashing and closing midgame, menus and options that are too painful to navigate through... Oh but they are more than ready to take your money; that part of this so-called "Beta" is working perfectly, along with the 60$ campaign that will not give you any extras for multiplayer if you buy it (as far as I know). You can clearly see where 343's focus is on.

I had low expectations for the game when it came out, and after looking over everything I still feel disappointed. I just don’t think halo is for me anymore.

I can't believe that this game was supposed to come out a year ago. Just imagine how little content there would be then.

@OneJediBoi nope just not factual You're assuming that I haven't played the game and I'm just riding a train well no I'm not I'm trying to tell you that the game is a bad game and that's just a fact, halo lacks proper progression (current state) , cod lacks polish (it's just buggy the funs there but bugs are also there) Battlefield lacks well battlefield (look just play any old game or even portal) The game is in an identity crisis, its boring, buggy, soulless and barely even functions And that's just from me playing it on a ps4 waiting on a ps5 and there too the game has major issues Just accept that if you do play it you'll know why I'm so adamant on saying it is bad You can have fun with anything if you can put up with garbage

@LUCAS BLZ BF2042 isnt bad, it's plagued with bad problems, like act man said for cold war, the bugs ruin the game which they have fixed some of, but judging from what people have said on UKvid and other platforms and my own experience it's fun to play. Just looks like you're having other people make your opinion for you

I have to argue that shields are too powerful. Just uninstalled it after loving it for days because there's not enough information about how much health enemies have. It seems like they have 1 hit left but have like 500 hp still, and even thought I wreck shop and hit them 900 times, they just keep walking. And all weapons do like the EXACT same damage besides the spanker, hammer and sword. It's like just use the battle rifle. And playing with a keyboard and mouse? Give up. Everyone with a controller will beat you because it just locks on and not a SINGLE bullet is wasted. Not to mention, TONS of my kills don't get counted. And sometimes I'll get kill marks for things I didn't even do. Like a kill on an enemy with a battle rifle when I was reloading and my teammate actually got him.

If they add a halo 3 or reach like Xp system , and more playlists I think it’s amazing. The competitive play is great . Feels good and old school like halo 3. No bs really , well balanced .

They wouldn’t release firefight before campaign launched and people had time to finish it so it seems normal that it would release a couple months after the campaign dropped.

The campaign underwhelms me, and I feel like it's because it's open world, it makes it repetitive. It's not bad but it's not really super fun either. It's ok, but it does not compare with 2, 3, and 4 which actually induce at least a little bit of emotion. It's just fun enough I guess. There is 0 emotional connection with the characters unlike in the previous halos. Like I don't even really care if they die other than it causing the mission to fail Also the new AI smiles WAY to much, she's kinda funny sometimes so I'll let it pass.

@Tom Mot I was referring to additional items and tools in games. Obviously those can be helpful but only the original pay toll is all you need to play any single game until you are out of lives or just lose the only one.

My two biggest issues is the aiming is atrocious. No setting seems to make the aim feel good which is so weird because the MCC and Halo 5 have great gunplay. And two is armor abilities make the gameplay so much better especially the grappling hook and thruster and the fact you can’t spawn in with a certain one is such a missed opportunity. In addition the movement feels so clunky. Strafing is unbelievable fast but other than that you feel so much more limited compared to past Halos.

Honestly, I managed to grind 30 or so levels of the BP before i realized I didn't have the time I did as a kid. I'm a whole adult now that works nearly 50 hours a week, and it already infuriates me I'm too grown up to even have time to get the weekly stuff. I don't have too much of a problem buying the rest of a battle pass I know I just won't have the time to grind out. As long as the stuff I get is worth my money. So far, getting a bunch of the Reach gear was great.

@Flatheads Rebuked The actual customization is great, it's just the progression to earn those items that needs a boost. The gameplay itself is basically fuckin perfect, best Halo combat and sandbox I've played since Reach
