Ratings and Reviews
This is the application that every fan wants their favorite video game series to have. One that brings together news articles, blogs, commercials, trailers, viral videos, e-sport videos, exclusives, creator panels, documentaries and the fan community all into one place. The app not only bridges the past with the present and the future in terms of celebrating the classic Halo games of yesterday while promoting the most recent games but also gives users a peek into what's coming. The app is well designed allowing users to navigate the various sections from the top drop menu. The graphics and colors pop off the screen of your device befitting a game series that is well known for the scope of its universe. For anyone who is a fan of the series or is looking to educate themselves in the lore Halo Channel is well worth a download.
Halo 5 (channel)
The app is very useful and I am fascinated with all the updates and information that I can navigate through on the app. I think it is a major UNSC success. I do have a suggestion for the Halo 5 game itself, maybe add the addition of Cooperative play. That would help a lot of people who have friends/family that want to play at the same time without having to obtain another Xbox One and game to go along with it.
This app is inferior
Halo Waypoint is a trillion times better than this app. 343i you really failed us this time. Not only is this a watered down version of Halo Waypoint, but it's also laggy and loading screens are EVERYWHERE. It's completely outmatched compared to the much older and superior Halo Waypoint. I tried regaining my unlocks from previous halo titles and I had to wade through both versions of this app just to update my profile's unlocks. 343's lack of thought and intelligence is baffling. If I ever meet someone who is actually mentally handicapped, I'd give them a medal for being smarter than this company. Another "screw you fans" from 343i.
