Conclusion: Unless your soul bleeds Mjolnir, or the Church of Halo-tology demands you play it on pain of death, give Halo: Spartan Assault a pass. There's more fun to be had in one minute of any other Halo game than there is in all of Halo: Spartan Assault.
Excerpt: Taking place sometime between March 2553 and July 2557, Halo: Spartan Assault puts you in the role of a Spartan-IV on the first mission of the Spartan Ops programme during the Battle of Draetheus V, the start of the second war between the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) and the alien Covenant.
Summary: Halo: Spartan Assault is a solid if short top-down shooter that serves both solo- and co-op-minded players, but the influence of microtransactions makes for an overly limited experience. The low price point certainly makes the game more attractive, but the campaign length and lack of any sufficient skill- or score-based hooks won’t keep action fans or high-score chasers plugged in long after they’ve seen Palmer and Davis off.
Summary: Microsoft leans on a familiar friend with 'Halo: Spartan Assault,' originally a mobile and Windows 8 release. As a top-down, twin-stick shooter, it's not the 'Halo' anyone is waiting for, but it is an excuse to revisit the sights and sounds of a franchise known, no matter the view, for its vibrant presentation.
Conclusion: A solid port of its mobile and PC counterparts, Halo: Spartan Assault is an enjoyable twin-stick shooter that provides little in the way of real longevity or value for money. Still, if you've nothing else left to play on Xbox One, you could do a lot worse.
Excerpt: I was going to write a really smart ass intro about how many Guitar Hero games are being released, but it's easier to simply relay the facts: by the end of 2009, 14 individual GH games will have been released since the beginning of 2008. That's more than one every two months. It's an insane figure, but it goes to show just how popular the one-time niche game has become.
Conclusion: Ce Guitar Hero Greatest Hits se montre très sympathique et séduira sans aucun doute les grands amateurs de la série. Ces derniers feront fi d'un contenu nettement moins important qu'à l'accoutumée, mais apprécieront de retrouver autant de morceaux originaux. Les oreilles apprécieront.
Pros: Titres officiels, Morceaux adaptés à la guitare, le micro et la basse
Excerpt: There’s only one question to answer. Is Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits a bridge too far? When Guitar Hero: Rocks The 80’s was released a few years back, pretty much everyone had their suspicions over what was coming. It took a while, but as soon as Activision deviated from the tried and tested route of “improve game, release sequel” with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and a few hundred thousand of us drunk the Kool-Aid, the path had been laid.

Summary: I thought that Spartan Assault would be a great addition to the Halo universe while expanding the audience with a new genre. In the end the short campaign, lack of storyline, and ease of gameplay make this a tough sell. I enjoy dual stick shooters like this, so I did enjoy my time with the game. However, you might have to lower your expectations with your purchase.
Pros: Halo controls work well, Recreates Halo universe faithfully, Challenges reward with extra points
Cons: Short playthrough time, Sparse environments, Could have added more depth to the lore
