    BEST HALO EVER!!!!!

    Rated on November 06, 2012 by silverlongshot

    The biggest fear of Halo fans, at least according to the Internet hivemind, revolves around 343 Industries taking over where Bungie had left off. Let's start things off right and put those qualms to...

    This game is amazing. Nuff said.

    Halo 4 is an amazing addition to the halo series. I am very happy for it finally coming out. This game will last for years until the next and will not get old. The campaign and all the crazy twists t...

    343 didn't mess it up but they didn't catch all of what made Halo so great. A good experience but not a great one.

    The game was great fun. I stayed up all night and beat it with a pal. After we beat it we sat back and said to one another, "Something's missing." After beating the game there is this feeling of so...

    Its what I have been waiting for!

    It continues the story that I wanted to read and know about. It gives the evolution back into 'combat evolved'. 343 did a wonderful job and their desire to do things right really shines through. Thank...

    Halo 4 is the Halo game I've been waiting for since Halo 2.

    Rated on November 08, 2012 by CEMETARY_GATESx

    Halo 4 is the most refined Halo title to date. Graphics Halo 4 impresses. When I first played Halo 3 I remember being slightly underwhelmed. It looked good but not great. By contrast Halo 4 is...

    A short but intense Campaign is complimented with series best Multi Player.

    So 343 gets handed the reigns of Microsoft's biggest franchise and the big question has to be did they break it or did they improve it. The answer is the improved it but not the levels that some revie...

    An honest attempt to bring new life into the franchise... That falls short, rather unfortunately.

    Rated on November 06, 2012 by Adam_GI

    The single player is really short about six or seven hours on heroic, the AI is very simple falling into repetitive patterns that are easy to predict and manipulate. I found the most difficult part wa...

    Halo 1 may have defined the FPS genre but Halo 4 refines it and breaks the cycle of recycled mechanics: 343 nailed it!

    Rated on November 06, 2012 by Trinitarian

    Ive played a little bit of everything so far. Online modes, single player chapters and some co-op. And that is enough to get the feel that this halo game has been so fined tuned and polished it really...

    Halo 4 probably has the best campaign next to Halo 2 buutttt its not without its problems.

    Rated on November 07, 2012 by kistasha1407

    Like every Halo fan I was very skeptical about 343 taking over and releasing a sequel to Halo 4. Being a huge Halo fan since it first came out in 2001 when I was 8 years old, the thought of another Ha...
