Halo Infinite Review Round-Up

Halo Infinite campaign reviews have arrived — and they seem quite promising. In short, almost everyone is having a blast with the game's strong sandbox experience, praising Infinite as the series' best entry in a long time.

To start with, you should check out TheGamer's review, where Jade King rated it 4.5/5, writing "Master Chief's long-awaited return is […] a triumphant step in the right direction for 343 Industries. The studio has taken the legacy it inherited from Bungie and finally crafted an entry that lives up to that reputation." Sure sounds like Halo Infinite will satisfy the series' long-term fans that have waited for years for another fun Halo experience. It also appeals to newcomers, as critics believe it's "combining nostalgic nods with fresh introductions to great effect."

Here is what other major outlets think about Halo Infinite's story campaign:

  • VG24/7 — 5/5
  • VentureBeat — 5/5
  • Game Informer — 4.5/5
  • IGN — 4.5/5
  • Gamesradar — 4.5/5
  • Gamespot — 4.5/5
  • Destructoid — 4.5/5
  • Game Rant — 4.5/5
  • DualShockers — 4.5/5
  • PCGamesN — 4/5
  • EGM — 4/5
  • VGC — 4/5
  • PC Gamer — 4/5
  • Screen Rant — 3.5/5

With such glowing scores, Halo Infinite currently stands at 86 out of 100 at OpenCritic, and 87 out of 100 at Metacritic. The scores will adjust in the next few days as more reviews keep coming for the game. Yet the title undoubtedly establishes itself as one of 2021's most fun shooters to play, sorry, Battlefield 2042.

While most critics found Infinite's narrative average at best, it's the core sandbox gameplay that energizes the experience, allowing for exciting, fast-paced gunplay, full of random events. On the downside, since Halo Infinite launches as a new platform for the series, both campaign and multiplayer may feel like a work-in-progress for quite some time. Luckily, Game Pass lets subscribers experience the game as it's evolving — and there's a long road ahead of 343 Industries.

Halo Infinite campaign launches December 8 across PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. With its free multiplayer already available to players, Infinite leads The Game Awards Players' Voice category, even though the story campaign won't be eligible for a Game of the Year nod until 2022.
