Crysis 2 Lead Writer: ‘Halo Is Bullshit’
In an exclusive interview with NowGamer, Crysis 2’s lead writer, award-winning science fiction novelist Richard Morgan has called out Halo’s story as “bullshit”.
When quizzed on the inherent problems of bringing out believable character from behind a faceless helmet, he confessed “I don’t like the Halo at all,” lamenting the dialogue he said “The reason that its fiction doesn’t work has nothing to do with the fact that you don’t get to see Master Chief’s face, it’s because of lines like ‘Okay … I’m gonna get up there and kill those guys’,”
But it’s the characters for whom he reserved the most grief. “Halo is full of these bullshit archetypal characters” he said, adding that the series has “no real emotional effect.”
With gusto of that brand, we hope the exceptionally capable author has the script to back it up. Crysis 2 releases worldwide sometime around Christmas this year.
