No comment on the idiocy level of the reviewer.

This review is just a ploy for hits and it's working. What is sad is that it's evident that he didn't even play the game, plus it's n4g and the fanboys can't stand that there is nothing on the market that can compete with Halo and it's consistent track record. I rate this review a 2 out of ten it's pathetic. This is what is wrong with journalism.

Makes me wonder how he even got Halo 4 to review it. This guy fails to explain why he thought the characters were not compeling. What is wrong with the AI in Halo 4?True he mentions that the game is the same as other halos. But if It ain't broke why fix it. Other games such as CallOfDuty, Uncharted, Gears Of War, and Kill Zone has the same gameplay for years. It's very risky to change something that gamers are accustomed to from years of success. He fails to mention the visuals, sounds, ect. What of Forge, this " journalist " has reviewed this game in a incomplete manner.I could even understand a 7 out of 10, but 5/10 is an insult. Only fanboys would say " only for halo fans".

Blistered Thumbs and EGM are both SHAT Websites anyway.

I message when I get irritated by silly posts by silly people. I'm personally not a Halo fan but even I can see this is going to be an ace game and well above a score of 5. Think this website needs higher monitoring or some control of what posts get added as half the time I'm reading lies, elaborate stories or just pure crap!

Since Gametrailers changed it's format this is the only gaming website I visit but will be looking to move if posts don't improve.

Angry Joe is on the site I instantly have no respect for anything coming out of this goofy ass site.

Oh boy, it's RE6 all over again...

While I respect your opinion, and your freedom of stating what you think, it's sometimes just plain wrong to state something like "Ferrari's a slow car" if you want to be taken seriously. You know that, and even the most hardcore Sony fanboy know deep inside, that Halo's not a 5/10 game. I mean, come on now...

Gotta admit, I'm a bit surprised. Those guys at Blistered Thumbs looked like decent gamers with good shows. I don't understand why they suddenly turned the troll switch on, but judging by the comments here it looks like it'll pay off. Congrats on your "uncredible" stamp for the rest of your internet career, you'll be surprised how retentive some gamers' memories are.

its funny that call of dutys formula hasnt changed since day frigging one and yet it gets good reviews every game. this game has even been said to change alot yet the controversy seeking critics will take advantage. sure. sad this wont happen to cod. activision will just pay for it not to.

I thought Halo 3 sucked.

Wintersun616  +   1193d ago
This bull$#!t is getting ridiculous! Though I haven't played it, there's absolutely no doubt that Halo 4 is one of the best games coming out this year.
JohnApocalypse  +   1193d ago
Not going to click on that link
OllieBoy  +   1193d ago
8.8 average now...ouch.

MS needs to send out more $800 Dorito swag bags.
G-Ham  +   1193d ago
Lackluster gameplay? Pretty much every review thats given halo 4 a positive review has said if the storyline isnt the best the gameplay is better than ever. Talk about craving for attention, but then i guess im giving it to them by writing this. Still calling absolute bullshit on 5/10. Just cant handle the halo is all.
tinezedw  +   1193d ago
i hope this website is not in metacritic
Kos-Mos  +   1193d ago
Why? metacritic is the most crappy compilation of "picked" reviews on the internet. metacritic for the mindless masses.
Silly gameAr  +   1193d ago
Well, I think it's pretty obvious that this review is meant for hits.
TheGamingShelf  +   1193d ago
It's pretty obvious you've never looked at the site before and are just saying what everyone else in the thread is saying.
Omnislash  +   1193d ago
What so anyone that doesnt praise this game and actually reviews it based on its innovations and new experiences is suddenly some kind of phony? How different can Halo be from the past Halo games? Im reserving my judgement but Im extremely skeptical about it. I think its a safe bet that the game has a bad story and everything else is just the exact same as past Halo games. I really dont believe MS is going to do anything innovative.
iNFAMOUZ1  +   1193d ago
haterz gon' hate, sites just dumb, oh and keeping halo the same is a good thing morons, change isn't always good, look what happened from halo 2 to halo reach, keeping the same halo formula is A GOOD THING and shouldn't be counted as a negative thing on any review, change doesn't mean a good review, anyone with that mind set is either a fanboy or a total snob.

Embarrassing agenda piece that ruins the credibility of this site.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   1193d ago
Site has no credibility anyway, a bunch of no names reviewing games.
TheGamingShelf  +   1193d ago
I contribute videos to Blistered Thumbs and know the writer personally. This isn't a grab for hits, trust me. All the writers are volunteers that write because they love games. "Trolling for hits" wouldn't benefit them in any way. This isn't that kind of site.

Also, 5/10 on BT is considered "Average" on their scale, not terrible. Plus, how do you guys even know if it's good or not? Have you played the game? It's not even out yet.
TKCMuzzer  +   1193d ago
I thought Halo 3 was average when it came out, many disagreed because of the reviews. Going back and playing it again confirmed my original thoughts, Halo 3 is average.
I'm not saying Halo 4 is average because it looks better but I will be surprised if it's a 10/10 like some sites suggest.
TheGamingShelf  +   1190d ago
A reasonable person on the internet!? The world truly is coming to an end!
DivineAssault  +   1193d ago
damn, they got bashed here.. I dont believe it but hey, my brother said he didnt like it so who knows? i dont play shooters anymore so i couldnt care less what it gets
TKCMuzzer  +   1193d ago
Can't imagine it's a 5, on other hand I can't imagine it's a 9.8 either.
Zha1tan  +   1193d ago
gotta love it how people still cant grasp that a game review is nothing more than one opinion.

I dont care about the opinion of a guy o has a pic of KILLZONE on his profil! haters!
memots  +   1193d ago
This is not a 5 out of ten. 5 of out ten is for game without budget or simply broken. This game oozes quality and investment this is one of those title that is wroth spending 60$ on. Maybe its not a 9.8 or 10 but its far from being a 5 lol
Bumpmapping  +   1193d ago
5/10 seems about right.Very well written review btw.
OniXRuleZ  +   1192d ago
i heard that 90% of PLAYSTATION gamers are not hardcore gamers, they are just 12 and 15 years old kids, and for some of the coments i see in here, i see that is true!
