The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here. Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST Campaign Edition, Halo 4 and the disc version of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary are joining backward compatibility today. Now you don’t have to buy Halo: The Master Chief Collection in order to play the games on Xbox One. However, Halo: The Master Chief Collection upgrades all of the games to 60 FPS so that’s something to consider when making the purchase.

Out of all of these, Halo 4 has to be my favorite campaign because not only does it look phenomenal, but it also features a great story. The multiplayer may not be that great but it’s still a lot of fun. If you own the games on Xbox 360 or have never played them, be sure to pick them up!
