Halo Infinite Is Underwhelming & Disappointing... (Part 1/2)

Go to buyraycon.com/actman for 30% off your order! Brought to you by Raycon.
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!

    • @BoomSlayer nah halo 4 is the only normal working game on the mcc and aim assist is cracked on halo 4 and reach is better than halo infinite but I'm going to admit the reach was good because it's fun on 360 but trash on mcc

  • I think its unfair to compare infinite to reach, reach was bungies magnum opus, it was their very last game with halo as a studio so they made damn sure everything was in it from the start as they were selling the IP off soon. Also reach was nowhere near as graphically good as infinite.

    • Reach was from 2010 and had more content. Sure it was Bungie’s last Halo, but Infinite launched with less content than Halo 5. Also, why do graphics matter with content?

  • We need split screen offline and online coop, forge (I don't care for it but I know how huge this mode is for the community and for new content), offline and online firefight, matchmaking a la carte (like MCC), ranked Team Slayer, and being able to earn Halo credits by playing the game. It's disgusting to see Halo Credits available for purchase for soooooo much money

Why isn't there ranked team slayer? This game is beyond frustrating and it could be soooo good. 343 released a pile of shit and just disappeared for months.

  • 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.

Think about it if u were a ceo and u seen how much money people were spending on extra content that should be in the base game alone wouldnt u do the same. They see how stupid we all are and they feed off that. If people would stop paying 50 bucks for BLUE!!!!!!! then we wouldn't be in this whole modern gaming situation

  • I dont know about most people theses days and if these corpo suits think tht this generation has very poor attention spans but my view is if a game doesn't have alot of content at launch I'll get bored and not come back no matter what dlc or patches come later. I'm the type that plays a game for ever so long with as much as I cam get out of it and I'm done and move on. I hate dlcs and never buy them I don't care aboit the future of games I care aboit the now

  • The problem with mOdErN gAmInG is because games have become too expensive to make. The gaming industry has been larger than the movie industry for a decade because games can't just be games anymore. They have to be photorealistic, cinematic, playable movie simulators that dazzle the player with style over substance. Halo: Infinite is a beautiful game, but some of the best games I've ever played have not aged well graphically, yet I play them more than their modern sequels. The resources at the disposal of developers in 2005 were pathetic by modern standards. The only way to make a game fun back then was to actually make it fun and not just make it like a movie that you play. Could you imagine if developers prioritized core gameplay and features over graphics? Games would probably look about 10 years behind the current day, but we would also have Forge in Halo: Infinite on day one. When you put it that way, did Halo: Reach really look that bad graphically?

  • hey man, I absolutely have to comment here. thank you for your video. somebody had to say it and you said it literally perfectly. when it launched the multiplayer options were so psychotically limited, it was odd and scary that 343 spent 6 years on a game that had that limited mulitplayer options, free or not doesnt matter. i would rather pay for a proper halo game then get a free half assed game. your perspective on this and halo 4 was amazing and made my own opinions feel validated because i completely agree with you on all the gameplay limitations. thank you act man for keeping it real and actually making sense. your opinions are really good and you should work for the halo company in my opinion

  • There’s no competitive gameplay with aim assist, this is a feature for casual and single player games, want Halo to be a competitive game like CSGO or Valorant or Ápex? Take off this garbage, or dont call it a competitive game. And let be honest, there’s absolutely no audience for controller e-sports, every single audience for this type of game is microscopic in comparison with MnK games, shooters like CSGO, Valorant, Fortnite or even MOBAS like LoL and Dota, advocating for letting Halo maintain a controller base e-sport scene its just letting the game already little competitive chance to survive die, it’s pretty obvious, just open Twitch.

  • Dont make apologies, guys. I see comments where people are okay with Forge and Co-op not being in the game at launch. This is the problem with games now. We, the consumers, are allowing them to push half baked games at full price while they “update” and act like they’re listening to the fans. I’m guilty of it too. Back in the day, Halo was a well developed WHOLE game that everyone bought at the purchase price. We can make a difference with our wallets.

  • Personally, I found the online to be so underwelming. This game feels old. Somehow, the gameplay feel less developed than combat evolved. It's slow, clunky, and almost feels like a cheap spinoff. It's sad that the best gamers can hope for these days is a remaster of an old classic. I miss buying a game for $60 dollars and having a complete game. It's so irritating to be spoon fed content that use to just be part of the game. Kinda a let down for those who have played halo for year's; as many of use have.

How can you expect a player base to increase when Xbox players have been playing this for ligit 20 years. It's unmatched and unsatisfying.
