I only played the single player so I assume the multiplayer was incredible, because the campaign seemed like a work in progress. The open world was pretty boring, if you played the first 1 hr of the game you basically played the entire game. Both deathloop and Returnal were much better single player games.
Xbox quality standards. And what you are saying is right. You just have to play around 1/2 hours and you have already played the game since nothing else is different.
This game would never get these high scores again in a re-review. I never understood that Halo Infinite got these high scores for a game that looks sometimes even worse then a basic map created by someone in a map editor.
The world looked far from finished. It looked like it was a week out of greybox phase or something, instead of final art. How MS can fuckup their biggest IP so hard lol.
