A Worthy Successor to an Influential Series
on March 10, 2016 at 12:20 AM
Halo 4 takes all of the great parts of Halo and adds a bit more. The maps are awesome (Exile and Haven to name a few), the campaign and story are a delight, the art direction is vibrant, and the graphics are terrific. While Spartan Ops was a bad replacement when it came to Firefight, there was always...
Halo 4 - All the wrong Directions
on October 10, 2014 at 01:41 PM
Halo has drawn in a massive fanbase over the years, due to it's awesome campaigns and fast, fun multiplayer. Unfortunately, Halo 4 fails to deliver in either of these aspects. Things start off in an impressive fashion, however, when the Master Chief wakes up from cryosleep and has to fight his way...
Halo 4: The good the bad and the awesome or the multiplayer the campaign and OMG finally we get to be master chief again!
on January 28, 2014 at 07:00 PM
Halo 4 is a game that is very much contraversial among fans of the series. Some belittle it as a sellout of a game that betrays its roots as a story fueled fps, while others praise it for brilliant multiplayer, I am going to do a little of both. For one, the story is not halo standard. But take into...
After the Fact: Halo 4
on December 04, 2013 at 06:15 PM
Let me first say this: this review is in my opinion, not the opinion of anyone else. When Halo 4 was first announced, I was rather skeptical of the game. It was 343's first rodeo, and I was already missing Bungie's hand in Halo. However, as more and more information was released, I became more...
343 goes above and beyond with the beloved Halo series
on November 15, 2013 at 05:39 PM
I'll admit I'm fairly new to the Halo series, my first Halo game was Reach. But this makes me all the more qualified to write this review. Halo 4 compelling yet easy to follow campaign allowed me develop a passion for the series and its protagonist Master Chief. 343 Industries created a Halo...
Halo 4 #EmporiumScore
on July 21, 2013 at 02:17 AM
People were shocked when they first heard me say this, but it's 100% true: "Halo 4 has the best multiplayer of any shooter I have ever played!" I was worried about the switch from Bungie to 343, but now I believe that the Master Chief is in good hands. I've played every Call of Duty...
Setting a Higher Standard
on April 08, 2013 at 08:45 PM
I’ll be the first to admit, I walked into Halo 4 fairly skeptical. 343 made a series of moves that made fans accuse the company of heresy, as customizable classes, the removal of the popular firefight mode, and the addition of an entirely new enemy class were all risky and potentially disastrous...
If your a Halo fan then you need to play this game!!!
on April 03, 2013 at 02:27 AM
I was never into the Halo series as much as a few of my other shooters, but after playing a bit of "Halo 4" I remembered how much fun it was!!! Did I mention it also one of the best 4 player split-screen games out there up there with "MW3" and the rest of the top ranking spilt-screen...
The most gorgeous and cinematic Halo to date
on April 01, 2013 at 06:52 PM
Before you read any further, know that I am a newcomer to the Halo series and played Halo Reach this January after receiving it from a friend. After finishing it, I started playing the original trilogy and finished the campaign of this game just a few days before this review. To keep things simple, here...
Better than Bungie's Halo
on February 26, 2013 at 07:07 AM
Halo 4 is easily one of the best games of 2012. It has innovative Post-release Support, Awesome Multiplayer, and a great Campaign! The Campaign actually makes the Master Chief "human" and shows a more personal side to him. Concept: Bring back Master Chief in a amazing and fairly innovative...
DownPlay Reviews #7 - Halo 4
on February 02, 2013 at 09:00 PM
So after five long years, it’s once again time to step into the gangrenous boots and strap on the dandruff-coated helmet of Master Chief. 12 years he’s been at this whole “saving the world” nonsense and he’s never even bothered to change. Must smell awful. Anyways, four years after concluding whatever...
343 Exceeds Expectations
on December 25, 2012 at 05:32 PM
I first got into the Halo Universe playing Halo 3 and Halo: Reach. I was always in favor of Bungie's efforts and work, but it's not surprise that I had less faith in 343 Industries when they were making Halo 4 and the rest of the new trilogy. I was pretty mind blown about the game when I first...
Reclaimer Saga: Introducing Installment
on December 20, 2012 at 01:54 PM
This Installment to the Reclaimer Saga was a tremendous success. There is hardly anything to complain about. The game is a perfest combonation of Co-operative, Competitive, and individual gameplay. As this game contains a structured gameplay found in campaign, it balances the mix with the creative sense...
Master Chief is Back and (mostly) better than ever.
on December 20, 2012 at 04:34 AM
STORY: Immediately upon seeing that Master Chief would return in the beginning of the new trilogy, I was drop dead excited, and like many fans of the series, or just people who played the previous installments, was curious how they'd handle Chief's story along with Cortana's, and in a greater...
Probably the best in the series...
on December 17, 2012 at 09:23 PM
Everything from the campaign to multiplayer to forge mode is amazing. It's absolutely one of my favorite shooters of all time. Graphics are amazing. Audio is sublime. It captures all the fun and magic of the original Halo CE without ever tiring out. i don't miss the brutes or the flood (never...
Halo 4: Stands On Its Own
on December 10, 2012 at 09:55 PM
I am a huge Halo fan. I've been an avid Halo follower since 3, and I haven't slowed down since. For Halo 4, I (like so many other Halo fans) had reservations. For one, Bungie had left its mesmerizing series in the hands of a seasoned, yet inexperienced developer (343i). Also, Bungie had little...
on November 22, 2012 at 02:59 PM
I was really worried about this installment in the series being that it was a new studio that was going to be handling the creation of the game, 343. I know they were feeling the pressure as well because they had taken on a game with with extremely high expectations from diehard fans that had been hooked...
343 Did It.
ØFF THE WaLL
on November 22, 2012 at 08:48 AM
A little before the Cover Issue I was a little scared of what 343 could do that Bungie did so well. After the Cover Issue I was very excited, though most franchises that are handed down to a new group of people suffer tremendously. The people are too scared to change anything. 343, however nailed it...
343 proves it can take the wheel from Bungie.
on November 19, 2012 at 11:17 PM
Refreshing. Thats one way to describe Halo 4. Many people (like myself) felt that Bungie's departure from Halo was a terrible thing, but worry not 343industries shows that Halo is not dead. 343 improves on almost all fronts. First, the story. Halo 4 picks up 4 years and some change after Halo 3 and...
Pretty good, 343!
on November 16, 2012 at 10:08 PM
***POSSIBLE SPOILERS???*** Surprisingly enough, I half expected this game to tank- only because I was such a Bungie fan at the time. I then began to see the trailers, the sneak-peeks. I was dumb-founded.. speechless even. This game is gorgeous!! *Who doesn't like a good shooter every now and then...
