When the UNSC can't track down thier most valued asset (Spartan 117: The Master Chief), they send a highly trained ONI soldier (Agent Locke) to bring him back.

As these two titans fight their way through Forerunner and Covenant forces, the fate of the universe hangs in the balance yet again. Written by markbarilla1992

Trivia

Halo 5: Guardians utilizes a dynamic resolution in order to maintain a locked 60fps refresh rate. What this means is that instead of dropping frames when the game is stressed it will drop the resolution instead. So at any given moment the game's resolution can range from a full 1920x1080p to as low 1152x810p in order to maintain a locked 60fps that doesn't drop a frame delivering fast paced and responsive gameplay.

Big disappointment for longtime fans... but there's still entertainment to be found.
20 December 2018 | by toddaarondouglasSee all my reviews

A poorly executed storyline finds itself awkwardly lodged in a very short and uninspired series of missions that exist for nothing more than to include content at the games 2015 launch; because there sure wasn't any to be found in the multiplayer at the time. However, credit where it's due, over the course of a year, free updates (unfortunately a rarity in the modern game industry) gradually added to the variety of the matchmaking and it became a pretty fun and addicting side-attraction to whatever other game you might've been playing. The unbalanced and unappreciated in game micro transactions took away from the fulfillment of getting new gear for your multiplayer spartan that can be found in the pre-2012 titles in the series. 6/10. Only slightly above average.
