    When did this come out on Xbox?

    I remember playing Halo a long time ago on PC, but it was so long ago I can't even remember which version it was.

    Halo 4 was released on Xbox 360 in November 2012 and on the Xbox One in 2014 (following the Japanese launch of the console) in the Master Chief Collection.

    MCC is a must buy me and my kids still have a blast playing split/screen multiplayer matches.

    I am lazy for not cross checking myself, but do I need the MCC for split screen gaming? me and the kids still love split screen multiplayer etc... seems a shame as it appears less and less games cater for this (might be a perception rather than reality?).

    Split screen isn't available on the PC. I think you can buy each title individually for consoles if you want to split screen but I think it might be limited to 2 player co-op.

    ah yeah, its on consoles the campaigns are 2 player co-0p but mp even on line on consoles can be 4 player split screen which is awesome fun apart from me being crap with a joy pad. and if ever halo 5 makes it to pc buy it only when its a bargain seasonal sale price.

    Never had an xbox so never played them. The MCC worth it?

    If you have no nostalgia for it it's tough to recommend imo. It's kind of an interesting universe but the level design does feel quite dated in parts.
    No it's Halo 4. Purchasers of the Master Chief Collection now have it available as part of that, but you can have it as a standalone.

    It's £30 for a set of well made linear FPS that bridge a slightly awkward gap between late 90s Doom/Quake/Unreal type games and Call of Duty style shooting galleries. If you like shooters they're well worth a go.

    If you find you like the series I also recommend the SPV3 mod for Halo PC, but play the games proper before trying that one, it assumes you're very familiar with the series from the get go.

    Thanks for that. That's the trouble when you misd out on the start, no ties to soften the blow of dated looks.

    I just had a look on Steam and it said I needed the Master Chief Collection first?

    That seems to be a stuff up in the Steam Store, the notice directly above that says that Halo 4 standalone does not require the MCC to be playable, but is also included with the MCC.

    The MCC is kind of only a launcher (but also the name of the complete package) that you get automatically with whichever one of the individual titles you buy.

    So if you buy just Halo 4, it installs MCC but you only get the Halo 4 part of it if that makes sense...

    Back in the old days, I have played Halo 1 co-op on friend's xbox and many hours of Halo 1 & CE on PC afterwards. Completed most of Halo 2 campaign on friend's xbox at launch day in the school common room (it was a good day).

    But I just can't get back into Halo Reach, the chronologically first game in the story. It feels incredibly dated and boring......

    Any harm in skipping Reach?
