Anyone else try the beta?

I have played maybe 10 matches. It feels good. I like how the weapons feel and player movement is smooth. It is pretty and colorful but dark. I don’t care for all the Spartan chatter. I hope they remove it or at least let me turn it off. I also hope the lobby is a wip because it is pretty terrible right now. I can’t hear my party in the lobby. Anyone can start the game not just the party lead. It doesn’t always show the party together when they still are so you’re never really sure who is with ya.

Here was my response from last week, over in Casually Competitive Gaming. I pretty much feel the same. I hop on, think “do I want to play the Halo 5 beta?” and go play Destiny.

I don’t like it. At all. I play a few games and go back to Destiny. Granted, it takes me awhile to get used to new games, but everything I don’t like about a lot of games is there:

*Buttons that make you do things that you don’t want to do that normally do something else

*Major lense glare

*Cheesy, repetitive audio lines (noise) and game ender

*EVERYTHING in it seems to be copying another game (I think Destiny, rather than CoD, but same dif)

*MAJOR kick back on your gun when you’re hit with weapon’s fire: didn’t like flinch before? Well, it’s now mega-flinch.

*Same lag. Sheesh!! Give me less graphics and abilities if it results in less lag, plz.

*It all just looks… wrong. Destiny is so smooth, so beautiful. Halo 5 looks… cheesy, that’s all I can say. It looks and feels really cheesy.

A lot of the Halo players I know are really liking it. They say it “feels like Halo”. I don’t know what the frick they are talking about. I will continue to hop over there for a few games over the next few weeks, and will possibly play it more and more as I get used to it, but maybe not.

PS: Destiny feels way more balanced to me. In H5 everyone is running around with Supers all the time.
