Eurogamer Review: Halo 4

Eurogamer: "It's a beautiful game, with none of the garish colours that spoiled the remake of Combat Evolved last year. Halo has never looked better." (Halo, Halo 4, Xbox 360) 8/10

He barely discusses major topics regarding the game, did he even play it? I mean, seriously, one single paragraph for competitive multiplayer? This review is a joke...

Wow, these reviews have really been mixed as far as complaints and praises go. Overall, the product seems to be good though. Can't wait to play it.
dark-hollow  +   1073d ago
Most reviews sofar is very positive with scores ranges from 8 to 9.8.
YodaCracker  +   1073d ago
On Metacritic, the game currently has more perfect scores than it has scores under 9, with the lowest score being an 8. Sounds pretty positive to me!

Dante didn't say the scores are mixed, just that the "complaints and praises" are mixed. In other words, some of the aspects that one reviewer really likes aren't as well received by another. For instance, I've seen a lot of varying opinions on the pace of the game.

But the scores are fantastic, so there's no need to be nervous.

LOL! Greenpowerz is all defensive......again. Who would've guessed that....

Come on it's Halo. It will get 8-10 across the board (mostly 9s and 10s) Happened with all other main Halo game no matter what. What's interesting to me is the way the graphics will look and what the scoring will be on that. Halo 3 got a free pass pretty much.

No offense but how are you supposed to 100% accurately assess the online multiplayer for a game which isnt out yet?
grayfoxx881  +   1073d ago
Right now the Press and 343 developers have access to the multiplayer. I read GameInformer's review, and they also had a video on their website of some of the guys playing multiplayer, presumably against some of the developers because they were getting their asses kicked pretty bad.

Testing within the company??
On-line isn't the only way to test out the mp modes.

@Kingdom Come

Opinions are opinions, leave ur fanboyism aside...
I played the campaign and they are right halo 4 has a weak campaign not good at all. Still gonna buy it to check out the multiplayer.

I give the campaign a 6/10

Not one person cares what your idea of a good game is, you've made clear through your comments that you are a diehard PS3 kid, emphasis on kid. Continue trolling every blog and continue you have a clue what you are talking about. Halo 4 is a masterpiece in every sense of the word, everything has been revamped changed, but still kept in the halo universe, isn't that what everyone wanted. Amazing job 343i.

@Gravelord - this review contains so many contrite nitpicks that it has no business being published anywhere.
GraveLord  +   1073d ago
Eurogamer is the first real review.
All the other reviewers were obviously paid off.

IGN for example had absolutely NO COMPLAINTS about halo 4. The game is apparently perfect.
NastyLeftHook0  +   1073d ago
so its a joke cause you dont like the review? please...
Redgehammer  +   1073d ago
I see Eurolamer is staying true to its love of the number 8

warning: dfjgosdhgjdf is spamming PM's with Halo 4 spoilers.
Ashunderfire86  +   1073d ago
Ign(9.8) and Gamespot(9.0) has a much better and detail review than this. Nuff Said.
Ak47Russia  +   1073d ago
And if IGN scored it an 8 and Eurogamer a 9.8 you would say otherwise.

Stupid fanboys.....

Played the campaign and they are right halo 4 has a weak campaign not good at all. Still gonna buy it to check out the multiplayer.

I give the campaign a 6/10

Calling me a stupid fanboy, yet your a fan of it yourself and you still gonna buy it. For all I know you probably bootleg the game to play the campaign troll!!! Freeloader!!! That's the only way you played that campaign cause Halo 4 is not release yet.
AlphaJunk  +   1073d ago
you've played it already???? but you're gonna buy it. wow - you're lame and a troll.
Norrison  +   1072d ago
You say you played it when all your comments praise your god sony and hate on xbox games lol.
kwyjibo  +   1073d ago
Yes, IGN's effusive gushing praise is so much better than this review which touches on how 343 have been inspired by Infinity Ward, and how 343 compares with Bungie, and the motivations of the player.

I mean, who cares about that right? IGN lists all the weapons and baddies and vehicles right? PEW PEW!
A-Glorious-Dawn  +   1072d ago
Ah this reminds me of the Uncharted 3 8/10 review.

Oh the messages were all so similar.
Fanboys of all kinds really care about review scores.

I try to focus on what the review says, and learn then make judgements based upon that.

A number is a number..

Yeah I don't get it, he hates the game yet still finds it necessary to comment on EVERY halo article... Some people were just born to troll...

No firefight = no sale, I'll save my money for something else.
lastofgen  +   1073d ago
So, were ODST and Reach your first Halo purchases, then, assuming that you refuse to buy a Halo game without firefight mode? Because those were the only games in the entire series that had firefight mode.
Mutant-Spud  +   1073d ago
More or less, I've only played Halo 2 and Reach, I thought firefight was the best part of Reach.
Hufandpuf  +   1073d ago
Halo 4 gets an 8/10. people go batshit crazy...

Seriously, people act like 8s are the worst thing to ever happen to a game, but in reality if you stack an 8 against any other entertainment medium an 8 is basically godlike.

Video game journalists and gamers alike need to grow up and stop crying over reviews.
Blacklash93  +   1073d ago
Pretty much. It's worth noting that complaints and praises are somewhat mixed. With the Prometheans, parts of the story, and spartan ops (along with speculation of how it will evolve in the coming weeks) to name the key ones. Some are very much enjoying certain aspects of Halo 4 while others less so.

It drives the point home once again that the best review of Halo 4 will be your own. You could land anywhere in the spectrum of opinions on it or even outside of that.

What is consistent across the board with these reviews is that Halo 4 is good, especially the multiplayer. What you should know is that you'd best try the game out.

7hrs to complete - most expensive game possibly ever made ... ok where is this going wrong
Allsystemgamer  +   1071d ago
But it's replayable like crazy plus all the co op forge and multiplayer? Did everyone forget all the other content aside from the campaign??
BigStef71  +   1073d ago
Im not a fan of Eurgamers reviews. They gave 8's to UC3 and gears 3 last year. Now they give Halo 4 an 8 as well. I feel they are a little too harsh on American games and more lenient with games that come from Europe
Captain Qwark 9  +   1073d ago
well to be fair then that just means halo 4 is on the same level as those two. granted i didnt care for either but most people lvoed them so that means they have equal love for halo 4 lol

i was going to buy halo 4 regardless myself. the videos ive seen fo it have sold me long ago and even though i didnt care for reach or odst this one could change that. i only read reviews to get a preview of what to expect in the gameplay and features of the final build. heck most of the time i enjoy games with 8's more lol
Nac  +   1073d ago
Same guy who gave Uncharted 3 an 8/10...bastard.
The EDGE  +   1073d ago
an 8 isnt bad, compare it to a chick an 8 is real nice.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   1073d ago
Black Ops 2 will smash this crap into the ground when it arrives, Halo servers will be a ghost town, save for the few fanatics that think it's a good FPS.
Redgehammer  +   1073d ago
What type of crack are you smoking?
Omnislash  +   1073d ago
I personally havent played the campaign and that to me is more important than the multiplayer...

I just hope they changed some things about teh multiplayer I hate hearing "Slayer" at the beginning of every match...
Tonester925  +   1072d ago
Too bad Master Chief dies at the end of the game

Yep that's why he's in 2 others after this right.
