Gamekult review: Halo 4

In many ways, Halo 4 is the heir to its forebears, as efficient in its gameplay as it is outdated in its design, with a solid yet pretty short campaign, and a complete multiplayer suite [...] But the young studio has nonetheless managed to put its twist on the series and bring it to a new stage, giving it a darker ambiance, deeper characters, a more modern technical direction... as well as some QTEs.
That was enough to end up with the best Halo game in years, to be sure. But we're still be waiting for the episode that will truly shake up old habits and put the series back in its just place. (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 7/10

wow, I had to stop reading this article because it didn't make any sense. I am guess that English was not the first language of the author.

Really? did u even notice the google translate button?

The review is in French and its translated using Google translate.


Its his opinion ppl need to respect it and move along...
Neonridr  +   657d ago
lol, I had no clue. No wonder it read so broken.

Thanks for pointing that out.. ;)

It's his opinion but it's my opinion the reviewer is a moron. Respect it and move along.

This site is French and many GOTY titles that have been reviewed by this site got s to include Uncharted and God of War so...it's whatever.

I doubt the game loses any creditability from this one website

Considering he has played the game and you have not, it's hard to justify your logic. On other hand you call him a moron but your sitting there with one bubble to your name.........

Lol...a 7/10? really?
NastyLeftHook0  +   657d ago
its a persons opinion he has the right to give it that score.

I love how a few idiots actually disagreed with this comment.

Damn so many butthurt guys here!
StrawberryDiesel420  +   657d ago
Yes, Really! The game is average, just get over it.
Blacklash93  +   657d ago
This is one review versus the dozens more that are giving at least 8's and most around 9's. That doesn't sound just average.

But that's all irrelevant in light of the fact that you haven't played it yourself. Trolls be trollin'.

Yeah because a meta score of over 9 is average. Now go back to playing... oh yeah you guys don't have anything this year.
DiRtY  +   656d ago
This is the same page and the sane reviewer that gave every single halo game a 7/10. So yeah, one random guy in France doesn't like halo.
GuruStarr78  +   657d ago
After playing the campaign in this game alone, I can honestly say that even if there was NO multiplayer element at all, this game would be at least an 8 or 9....

Yes, it's that good..
ickysweat77  +   657d ago
How did you play the full campaign when it's not out yet? Illegal download, or just making stuff up?

Your decisively indecisive about what it's minimum score should be.

He was not sent a goodie bag.

Move along people, it's Gamekult.
smashcrashbash  +   657d ago
Whether he is right or not people will brush aside this score because it is the lowest one. So why bother to write it? No one is going to listen.
Chuk5  +   657d ago
At least this review feels justified. I can respect it. I hope this is a continuing trend. Halo 4 looks amazing, and probably and based on most reviews, people are taking a much more grounded approach. Stepping back from sounding like a pr article. I expect the same for Black Ops 2, New Super Mario Bros Wii U, and any other big game this year.
DARK WITNESS  +   656d ago

I know it's their opinion. As long as they approach reviewing games like blackops with the same process.

there was a time when everyone kind of assumed that just because it's halo it's always going to get 10/10 or at least 9+.
ASTAROTH  +   657d ago
This is the same old HALO with a new and needed coat of paint... The fans are gonna love it, the media its going to forgive its flaws, and the general audience will see it as an average same old HALO!! But guess what?? If you are a fan of the series this game is by far the best, so enjoy it!!!

Hey people ! I'm french and Gamekult is a very good website. You just have to know that France has a very different culture of videogames, and French journalists have never loved Halo. But a 7/10 from Gamekult il GOOD ! It's not like a 7 on IGN, it's better than a 7 on Eurogamer or Edge. On Gamekult 4 and less is a red mark, 5 and 6 are yellow(mixed), but 7 to 10 are green, so really good game !

And keep in mind that Gamekult gives very few 9 in a year, and they never gave 10 !

If this doesnt reveal that review's are a complete farce, Dishonored gets 9's but Halo 4 gets 7's?? lol, thats because "NO MATTER" what the reviewers say about Halo 4, its gonna sell millions & millions, Game reviewers a full of Sh@t, plain & simple , a bunch of liars ...its all about deception & creating a controversy, if youve played enough games in whatever genre you prefer, you as a gamers should know by now what you do & dont like about a game, should be able to tell b4 a games release if its gonna be a hit or not, if youve followed its development b4 release, Reviewers are not even needed. Just taking up space & clean air. Dump the lot of them in the nearest trash heap, & be done with it.
