Halo: The Mas­ter Chief Col­lec­tion

XBox: The Official Magazine - - OXM INVESTIGAT­ES -

Halo was al­ways go­ing to ap­pear on this list, but choos­ing a sin­gle ti­tle as the best is just too darn dif­fi­cult, so we cheated and chose Halo: The Mas­ter Chief Col­lec­tion in­stead. Halo: Com­bat Evolved didn’t just prove that you could do great first-per­son shoot­ers on con­soles, but it cre­ated a sci­ence fic­tion story that was much more com­pelling than peo­ple ini­tially thought and set a solid foun­da­tion for the rest of the fran­chise. Then there’s Halo2 which sin­gle-hand­edly changed the world of com­pet­i­tive on­line mul­ti­player for­ever, specif­i­cally in the way it han­dled player match­mak­ing. It was so im­pres­sive Mi­crosoft sought Bungie’s ex­per­tise in the de­vel­op­ment of its Xbox Live ser­vice. Halo:TMCC brings to­gether remastered ver­sions of Halo1-4 and con­tains 45 cam­paign mis­sions and over 100 mul­ti­player and Spar­tan Ops maps, and own­ing it is es­sen­tial.
