'Halo 4' Review - Forbes

Forbes:

"Usually when there’s a ’4′ in a game’s title, there’s not much to be said about how it’s going to be a reinvention of the series. Across five different shooter titles, Halo has given us new guns, maps and gameplay modes over the years, all developed by its creator, Bungie. With Halo 4 however, it’s important to note that this is supposed to be a shift for the game in many ways."

The story is too old to be commented.

This is a better and unbiased review of the game as opposed to the ign review. Could the bias be more clearer IGN? IGN actually said the game was innovative. Really? How so? Its just ideas new to the series.

aviator1891427d ago

Maybe if you actually bothered to read the entire ign review and watch the video review, you'd know why halo 4 scored points for innovation.

And this is "better and unbiased" how so? Because it awarded the game a lower 8/10 over ign's 9.8/10?
In the end, they're all just opinions.

darthv721427d ago

so you are saying that ideas can't be innovative?

Hoje03081427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

Darth, can you read? His claim was that the ideas were new to the series, not the genre. I shouldn't have to explain the rest.

Godmars2901427d ago

Kind do really. Explain thing.

I mean like exclusivity, the word "innovation" has been overused to the point of irrelevancy.

Hoje03081427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

In this case, innovation would typically involve bringing new ideas to the genre, or even the entire medium. I'm not saying I agree with the assessment offered by Live, but Darth's question is incredibly stupid and shows a feeble mind at work.
Edit: Wow Darth, you really are stupid. He didn't say that ideas can't be innovative. He simply said that ideas that are new to a series, rather than a genre are not. My post made my view of ideas and innovation quite clear. And no, simply because an idea improves on a game doesn't make it innovative. Ideas that advance the genre or the medium are hold that honor.
Also, when did anyone mention technical prowess? It's as if you're simply inserting random platitudes into the conversation.

darthv721427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

from a general nature, the question still remains.

Can ideas be innovative?

If we must be specific to this game then the same rule applies. Ideas that improve on aspects not considered in previous entries can be considered innovative.

It isnt always about the technical prowess but about how you use what you have.

Godmars2901427d ago

Meh, all i'm hearing is that COD influenced some elements introduced to Halo, so if there's and innovation going on, its COD.

So point Hoje0308.

You sound like a guy who wants the game to do bad and looking at your comments history i think you really are. Seems like you are always stealth trolling.

lastofgen1427d ago

Dude, give it a rest.
And please read the entire ign review again. He does state as to why the game innovates.

greenpowerz1427d ago

You mean you like this one better because it says what you want to hear and has a score that helps you sleep better.

kikizoo1427d ago

Lol, greenpowerz always living in the opposite world.

don't forget, only xbox fans are dreaming about exclusives they don't have (99% of the great exclusives) and troll more than everyone else.

ALLWRONG1427d ago

ILive most are giving it 9's and even 10's. Funny how you only mention IGN. What kind of tinfoil hat excuse you going to come up with next?

ILive1427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

I read Ign's review and even watched the video. They only mentioned goods things and i understand that. The only thing is that they didn't really go in depth regarding the bad things about the game like this review and other reviews did. I am not saying that I want the game to fail because I am getting it. I just happened to have read IGN's first and then forbes. I still stand by the fact that the game isn't innovative just like many games out there. You people should come because its just a game that I am shedding my opinion on.

So is it better than reach? From an unbiased standpoint.. My brother played it & said he didnt like it

Temporary1427d ago

I played it as well, wasn't SUPER impressed. But im buying it day 1 regardless. Bought every other Halo why stop now?

DARK WITNESS1427d ago

Your brother played Reach and didn't like it or played 4 and didn't like it ?

vikingland11427d ago

I watched the IGN review and I can tell by what I watched this game is going to be great.

newn4gguy1427d ago

There is no reason to be upset on this one. If your harshest critics give you an 8/10, you're doing something VERY right. :)

Godmars2901427d ago

And yet by above comments and reaction to them, its the same BS as always.
