Halo 5: Guardians - Xbox One

  • Genre: Shooter   
  • ESRB: M   
  • Publisher: Microsoft   
  • Developer: 343 Industries   

Peace is shattered when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked. But when humanity's greatest hero goes missing, a new Spartan is tasked with hunting the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.


Solid multiplayer action, but brought down a notch by a campaign that just doesn't live up to the hype. (84%)
