UPDATED, 3/5/15: Latest online patch fixes a lot of issues, but overall online multiplayer experience still needs lots of work (NOTE: Keep in mind that this review is based on MY experiences and MY opinions: your mileage with HMCC may vary.)(NOTE 2: for those interested, skip down below to find the latest update to this review, UPDATE 13.)Wow, what a disappointment! Nearly a week and counting, the multiplayer as of Sunday November 16th, 2014 is still not working on my end. Never mind bugs and glitches; I can’t even connect to an online match … not one!

After not having played Halo 1 since early 2000’s, I still remembered every bit, and being able to swap between that generations graphics and the updated versions amazes me. I find myself always hitting the button to see the difference every 5 minutes.Extras:The Halo channel that shipped with the game is fantastic. Nightfall, documentaries and behind the scenes footage of various projects is always interesting to watch. Very well organized.Multiplayer:Review incomplete. I purchased this game to play multiplayer mainly, and since release, have only managed to get into 3 matches. 343 Industries has released server side patches but with no results as of yet. Ranking systems are offline, map options in lobby dont match to what you may be playing on. Big Team rounds for those 3 games I played were only 6v6. And some…
