Halo Infinite Is The Best In The Series According To John Carpenter
John Carpenter, the legendary horror director, has just played Halo Infinite and believes it is the best of the Halo series. After a problematic development cycle, Halo infinite was delayed for over a year due to negative feedback from fans. 343 Industries finally released their single-player campaign to their latest sci-fi FPS last month. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise, 343 Industries released Halo Infinite’s’ multiplayer component in a free-to-play model. This set new records for concurrent users for an Xbox Studios title and broke the Steam record for most simultaneous players.
Halo Infinite launched its single-player campaign in December to warmly receive. Many critics were impressed by the campaign’s ability to be an excellent jumping-on point for new players and pay homage to the Halo games. Marcus Lehto, who designed Master Chief’s Mjolnir armor, was also a fan of Halo Infinite.
Kotaku reported that John Carpenter took to Twitter yesterday to share his thoughts about Halo infinite. He described Halo Infinite to be “a fun shooter” and stunning production design” and concluded his brief but glowing review with the statement that “halo-infinite-is-the-best-of-the-1848369389”>John Carpenter.
John Carpenter is well-known among cinephiles for his work as a director of classic horror films like The Thing, Halloween, and others. He’s also very vocal about his love for gaming. He praised Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and recalled that the original Sonic The Hedgehog was his first video game. Among Us and Carrion have taken inspiration from his films. Saints Row IV even featured a reenactment from the classic fistfight between Roddy Piper (and Keith David) from They live, among its many pop-culture references.
Halo Infinite was well-received in both single-player and multiplayer. Although there has been some controversy over the game’s microtransactions, 343 Industries recently pledged to address Halo infinite’s microtransaction pricing in an upcoming patch. John Carpenter’s endorsement is a good sign for the new installment of the Halo franchise.
