GenericTo preface this, I haven’t watched the full series. I could only get through the first couple episodes. If you are a Halo fan this is not for you. In the first episode John takes his helmet off and it pretty much stays off for good. This sounds ridiculous I know. As a Halo fan, John rarely takes his helmet off. It allows players to imagine as if they were him, but there’s another aspect that Halo 4 kinda played with a little bit. John never taking his helmet off is symbolic of who he is. War is all he’s ever known, and he’s borderline robotic about it. The first Halo game even described him as a cyborg (technically he was altered through scientific means in the books). This would’ve been amazing to build on. First showing is how robotic and desensitized he is to War, but then showing his humanity. Growing him as a character while showing his past and what he endured, and telling a compelling story that makes the viewer want to continue to watch. This is none of that. It’s so generic and such a letdown. You can tell the writers care more about making a show that appeals to everyone while removing anything that would make it unique and make the viewer want to stick around. Please don’t watch this. It’s a huge letdown as a Halo fan, but it’s also a letdown as a sci-fi fan..Score: 1/5
Nothing like the video gamesThey named the show “Halo” just so they can make easy money with the already established Halo fan base. This is not Halo. This is corporate greed..Score: 1/5

ExcellentAll the negative reviews are wrong. I didn’t know anything about halo from the sci-fi standpoint. It’s five star. I have forgotten, more sci-fi, then most of these posters. When I think of some of the other sci-fi shows and compare them to this, this is better..Score: 5/5
Offensively horribleThis show was horrible. Writers literally announced they purposely didn’t pay attention to the storyline of Halo, nor cared about adding to the universe. The result it this horrible show. Master Cheek’s face is revealed, which is a big “no-no” and so are his butt cheeks for some stupid reason. The acting is horrible. Writing is horrible. And so is the animation at times. Do not waste your time watching this garbage. Just please don’t..Score: 1/5

Cmon AppleThis series is really good. Apple has messed up the order of the episodes tho. Just look online for the episode lost. 1-4 is good, 5 is where 7 is and 8 is where 5 is. It’s stupid.Score: 4/5
OK but...As others have mentioned, episode 1-4 are good and then episode 5 makes no sense because the previously shown was not seen by anyone. There are 9 episodes in season 1, it is like there should have been 10 but one was withdrawn. In any case, this show was a tad dissapointing but still enjoyable. The post production was terrible in telling the story arc. The CG was so so, the acting was good, the story was convoluted and a jumbled mess. Lets hope season 2 fixes these glaring issues..Score: 3/5
Missing an episodeThe season is good as you’d expect. A little less action than I thought but overall it’s good. Unfortunately there seems to be an episode missing between episodes 4 and 5. The recap at the beginning of episode 5 is about things that aren’t part of episodes 1-4, and episode 5 starts off as if those things occurred. I think they forgot a whole episode which creates a break in the story. Wish I’d have known before buying..Score: 2/5
It’s okay for a halo fanHuge fan of Halo, whether it’s been the previous movies, games, or books, there’s a lot of great story in Halo across the board. With that said, I think the TV series is okay. I can understand the direction they’re going to appeal to a larger audience who may or may not know of Halo, but because they’re so far off the actual stories the character development and character choices start to become questionable to me and somewhat unbelievable and out of character. They could’ve just stuck with some of the origin stories in the books (like Lord of the Rings) and it would’ve probably ended better than rewriting some of the history and events to something brand new. I would rebuy the series again as I’m a fan, and maybe season 2; maybe not 3 if the series continues down this road. Why rewrite the story if an amazing backstory already exists behind the games?.Score: 3/5
Watchable but wrong orderFor context I have never played a Halo game so I am coming to this series with no preconceptions or bias. The series is fine if a little slow. The actors are alright apart from the guy playing Master Chief who is so devoid of charisma and personality that he could get killed off and it wouldn’t bother me at all. The CGI is a little… off at times, especially with Cortana who is very cartoonish. I get it may be to please the fans of the games but it doesn't fit in the series aesthetic well. I have to say its worth a watch but the series is out of order on Itunes with episode 8 placed as episode 5. Not sure why it hasn’t been corrected yet because I can’t be the first person to notice this. Give it a bash… its a but of fluff to watch without having to engage your brain. Good lazy Sunday sci fi..Score: 3/5

Halo game fan…loved the seriesIgnore the hardcore minority Halo game fans who are crying rivers and bashing this series. I’ve been playing the Halo games since the beginning and I loved this show. Yes it changes a few bits and pieces here and there from the games but so what? The story and the production values are every bit as good as other top notch sci fi TV. ##Newsflash## This wasn’t made just for a small section of hardcore halo gamers. This series has to appeal to a wider audience if it’s to be successful therefore things had to change..Score: 5/5
Poor, unfortunately.Roundly hated and derided by the vast majority of fans and non-fans alike. Beware of the early 5 star reviews on shows that always seem to turn up on movies and shows no matter how bad they are. The 5-star reviews here do no represent the majority of opinion, as always. It’s been widely panned by professional reviews, too. Hopefully, the writers listen to fans, actually play or research the game more to see what people loved about the game’s story and characters. That’s just common sense and non-fans would enjoy a good story, too. But it requires good writing..Score: 1/5
If you are a Halo Fan avoidThe series is non canon and completely butchers the Lore, next to nothing in the series is accurate to the games or books. The people who made this admitted they never played the games or read the books, and didn’t make it for the Halo fans. The halo games sold well due to the great story but paramount decided to change everything, they kept the name and the aesthetics but none of the main characters or what happened are the same as the game. this show was made because of Halo fans like myself asking for a halo film or show for over a decade, and when they make it they betray the existing fan base and provide nothing but disappointment..Score: 1/5
Much better than expectedI’m a massive fan of the games and have been since the original release. This program for me really captures the feel of the game very, very well but adds it’s own spin to events preceding the games. I think that they did an excellent job..Score: 5/5
Great seriesThis show is so well made - impressive effects, a moving score, and beautifully acted. I have not played the Halo games that much so I came into this without having an in-depth knowledge of the lore. That didn’t matter as I was easily able to follow the story and was gripped by the end of the first episode. The actor playing Master Chief “John” is superb and plays the character in a very understated and subtle manner that makes him very compelling. I can’t wait for the next series..Score: 5/5
