Be happy and just play the game . don't wine that the graphics aren't better because they are as they look exceedingly better to that of reach , i have doubted the look before but cast minds back to CEA they changed halo incredibly and in halo 4 they have gone into so much detail that jump men have mechanics inside them which you can see ... HAPPY PLAYING

This game needs a serious graphics upgrade. Halo games just haven't improved enough gameplay-wise this generation to justify another release with now-tired graphics.
Should have waited for 720...or released on PC :p. A new trilogy needs a new engine.
People are ranting about the season pass. REALLY!?! CoD had a 50 dollar season pass, and this one is 25, and this is a way better game that isn't just the same as the last one.
Oh great, another "Season Pass". Think I'll just wait til it's in the bargain bin after Xmas, so I can play the story. Looking forward to playing the SP campaign though. Hopefully with a new enemy it'll refresh the series a bit. I used to enjoy the Halo MP, but the cash-cow that is DLC maps every month has really put me off. But people will be stupid enough to pay for it, so developers will keep churning out these Season Passes.
60$ for the game. 15$ a month for the online. 15$ per mapack (which you have to buy else the game the won't allow you to play on half of the game types. So lets say, you pay 60 dollars for the game, then add the 15$ a month. And then say they release four map packs at 15$ over the space of 12 months Overall thats 300$ in about 12 months just to get the most benifits from the game. And people are dumb enough to spend 300$ just to play a game.
Ugh, i pass. I only bought reach for the singleplayer story. So i'll wait another two years and pick this one up for 20 bucks pre-own from gamestop Now i know why i switched from playing my xbox to my PS3.
it is bs that this doesnt release on pc right off the bat, but I'll go ahead and get it on xbox but I know lots of people who would be buying this on PC. considering when Halo ce came out, that age group have been fans since the beggining are damn near in there 30's. a lot of those people are definitely playing on PC and love halo. I'm around that age and every single one of my friends I game with play pc. I have halo ce and halo2 on pc and they are great with the mouse and keyboard.
Um... aren't the Forerunners supposed to be human?
Or is Bungie/343 just choosing to ignore that whole Guilty Spark plot that made up the majority of the original trilogy?
@BrassBullet I don't think you seem to realize, people are saying that 343i "performed magic" when it comes to how good Halo 4 looks graphically. It IS in true 720p and the engine they used (same as Reach) is so heavily modified it might as well have been a new one.
@bmart970 I do enjoy Halo, and will agree that $25 is a good deal on the season pass, but I disagree on your last statement. To me, the Halo franchise hasn't really added much from year to year in terms of new content.
Yeah, all us stupid people that buy dlc and want to keep playing a game that stays fresh. Shame on us.
@AmirLegend23 Hmmmm.... are you referring to Master Chief?
@AmirLegend23 your right its gone right past it.. For a game that was one of the building blocks for many shooters to date.. Halo is in its own league far as im concerned the chief is probably one of the most recognised protagonists in gaming history
@CrimsonCorp Its Keith Szarabajka. He is the voice actor of Harbinger in Mass Effect.
@thingta42 I'd rather pay for a better online than not pay and have a shitty online (PS3)
@thingta42 you sound so stupid... It's $60 for the game, $60 for 12 months of live, and 2000 ms points for the map DLC season... Which is $20... Where does that add up to $300!? Moron...
@thingta42 What is this LOL and it even got 2 like's
@thingta42 1) its not $15, its $10, 2) you can buy a year for $60, 3) the map packs are usually $10 and are bought because the game i s loved as does well, that is why the map packs even get released, paying the money to play a game isn't dumb, gaming is a luxury anyway, its not cheap regardless of what you do
@thingta42 Cool.. Don't get it. Doesn't take away from us.
@thingta42 You did the math wrong. 60 bucks for game, 50 bucks for 12 months (buy amazon) 25 dollars for dlc pass. $135.
You put the dollar sign on the wrong side by the way.
@thingta42 your not paying membership for just 1 game its for ALL games on xbl so stop trolling and its no where near 300$ i think u need to go back to school kid.
@thingta42 and the map packs are 10 dollars a piece or 25 for all 3
@thingta42 Xbox live is 60$ a year. Thats 5 dollars a month.
@djpetitte i was 6 or 7
@djpetitte Not everyone was old when it came out... i was 11 at the time. only 22 now.
@wavelength121 They're not Forerunners, in fact Forerunners and Humans were at war with each other. Humans are just "Reclaimers" and are thought to have been created by the same species that came before both of them.
It was never stated that the Forerunners were human, aside from what Guilty Spark had said at the end of Halo 3 as a result of rampancy.
It's 15$ a month. times that by 12
@fedetaco @thingta42 well, most people already are paying for Xbox Gold so it's more 85 bucks. Plus, DLC is DLC which means you don't have to buy it (I don't) so . . . 60 bucks for a video game. Yeah. That's normal.
I do tend to buy the games after a price drop so I'm with you there. I just am really excited for Halo 4. My only day one release purchase this year.
