Does not live up to Halo: Reach
This game is pretty good. I, as with other halos, love playing the home made game modes. The thing is ,though, i think the most appealing feature of Halo is getting to make and play maps with your friends. Well that is where i was let down on this game. It's problem is the forge on this game is a big step back from Halo Reach. If Halo 4 had just as good of a forge as Halo Reach, then it obviously would have done much better.
Best halo ever
i thought this game was going to suck because of a different company dam i was wrong 343 industries did a great job on their first halo
i was blown away by the game i had a bad feeling because of a different company but i was wrong. the graphics everything just blew me away
Fantastic First Run From 343
Everything that I wanted from this game pretty much happened. The story definitely went in a different direction, and had a more cinematic feel to it introducing the Diadect, but nonetheless, it was incredible all the way. 343 has absolutely lived up to Bungie's legacy and I cannot wait to see Halo 5. Online, of course, is extremely addicting and fun. The campaign was interesting and eventful. All in all, extremely well done.
Not bad, but not the same.
This was one of the best games I've played. At first, I was sure the cut scenes were live-action, the graphics were so good. Unfortunately, the effects, (explosions, etc.) didn't take advantage of the graphics and came off as weak. Gameplay is reminiscent of past Halo's but may take some getting used to if you've been playing Halo Reach recently. All around a good game mechanics-wise, but I missed the story from the other games. The first few levels in, I thought: "Its called Halo. Can it have more to do with the Halos?" But then started to like the turn. This focuses a lot more on the Forerunners, and I enjoyed staring at their beautiful architecture. This is 343's first Halo game, (Unless you count Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition) and it shows what potential they have to make great games. There is something you should all decide before buying: Are you a HALO fan or a BUNGIE fan? Halo 4 reminds you of the original Halo's, but isn't the same. Some people will hate the game automatically simply because it wasn't done by Bungie. To them I say, go pre-order Destiny, because that is going be be awesome too.
BEST GAME EVER
This game is amazing the campaign is amazing with a great story line and the multiplayer has unlimited possibilities
Looks like a halo game but doesnt feel like it.
I loved the game. but it just didnt feel right. it didnt feel as polished as halo reach in gameplay and graphics, the story was a interesting change but didnt catch my attention as much as previous games. loved some of the multiplayer additions like ordinances but seemed pretty difficult to find weapons on maps unlike previous games.
I am a big fan of the Halo universe. This game blew me away and I love this game. I would have liked to see more features but still a great game. Story a really sick. I hope Firefight makes a grand return in future Halo games to come. Great job 343.
Full of glitches and bugs. 343 got lazy and did nothing but put instant kill weapons and an enemy that does nothing but regenerate and teleport with instant kill weapons. Legendary is a joke and the game is so boring you force yourself to finish the campaign.
Best Multiplayer Experience
Halo 4 was basically my first multiplayer experience and let me tell you it was amazing. In the beginning the game was okay, but after all the modifications 343 did to the game it just felt amazing. The weapons feel so balanced now and there's a lot of new maps. There are a lot of new weapons and new armor abilities. The campaign is pretty good too. There were a lot of easter eggs here and there. The graphics are really amazing considering the short amount of time 343 had. I really hate it how a lot of people bash on halo 4 and make 343 look bad when 343 is constantly updating the game even though it's about 11 months after its release.
