Game completion 2021 #56 – Halo Infinite

  • Platform: Xbox Series X
  • Developer: 343 Studios
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios

Really loved this return to the Halo universe. Infinite leans heavily into what the series did to make us fall in love with it back on the original Xbox, while still finding cool ways to freshen up the format.

The mixing of Infinite’s new open-world shenanigans with its traditional linear passages of corridor shooting sometimes feels at odds, but the combat is stellar regardless of where you are it’s hard to care for long.

The combat in this iteration easily puts it into my top 3. Gonna have a think on my Halo series rankings and post it on Twitter in the next few days.
