Oh no, an 87 on METACRITIC! Why, that's how I determine how much I enjoy games, and an 87 might as well be a zero!

More like MEHtacritic.

Because meh, Who knows how many of the reviews for any of the games are legit. I could see each game getting more troll reviews or fanboy reviews than the last.

I can't think of many highly rated series that haven't slowly gotten lower and lower ratings without having a serious mix up (i.e Resident Evil 4).

Yep, that moron at EGM who gave it a 7 said it should have had iron sights and big setpieces like Call of Duty.

Halo 4 is sitting at 87 on metacritic because its a massive franchise, its simply a victim of fanboys, jealousy, and trollage. A victim of its own success you could say.

From what I've played so far of Halo 4, it's as fun as 1, better than 3, and better than 2. I have not played ODST or Reach, however. Metacritic is the "Wikipedia" of game score reliability. Play the games and decide for yourself if you enjoy them.

It has always been an overhyped but mediocre series. The only thing keeping it alive now is Doritos and Mountain Dew. It's even copying COD now.

I'll feed the troll. It's in a more saturated market. We the consumers have more options now which pull its score down I'm sure; however, it is still an amazing game and series.

lol, aggregated scores If you understood how Metacritic works, you'd know exactly why it is "declining" in score. In 2001 there were far less review outlets, and a lot less of them were trying to be "critical". But I say again... lol, aggregated scores

Not to me, Halo 4 is my favourite Halo game since CE. Also a 8.7 is pretty good, especially considerig it got a few troll scores....like a 2.0? :o

Quarter to Three(?!) gave it 2/10, lol. I haven't played it, but 2/10 is pretty hilariously low considering the average.

It gets canceled by several other reviews which overrate the game and give it 10/10. The beauty of Metacritic is that fanboy reviews from either side cancel each other.

if they didn't release ODST, Reach, a Halo CE: remake so close together inbetween Halo 3 and 4 it would have reviewed much better

Every series is "declining" if you go by MC. Look at Killzone, CoD, Uncharted, Resistance, LBP, Gears, Infamous, Final Fantasy, GT, Forza, Zelda, Mario. If you only buy games based on MC average you are missing out on 95% of good games.

The sad thing is, Halo 4 added the same exact things Uncharted 3 did (Sprint button, Loadouts, Perks, Kickbacks/Ordinance). So does that mean Uncharted 3 is copying CoD? I doubt you've ever even played it. :lol:

Lol Tom no Chicks gave it a 1/5 and he didn't even beat the game. Also, the same can be said about the God of War series.

9.0 in 2012 standards>>>>9.0 in 2009 standards. I guess PDZ is also as good as both those games too, right?! Still butthurt?

Just because you had 3 bad years in a row gives you no right to discredit Twisted Metal, Journey ( GOTY contender) Ratchet& Clank etc..

What happened to gamespot scores being the only one that matters around here? Regardless, even if Halo is declining it's doing it awfully slowly. It took ll years to get to an 87 and thats still a great score.
