Halo 4 Review | Atomic Gamer

Atomic writes:

"When Bungie won their freedom from Microsoft and said they were done with Halo, that generally made people think that even if MS wanted to keep the franchise going, it'd never be the same and couldn't possibly be as good as Bungie's original five games. What wound up happening is that Microsoft formed a new studio called 343 Industries - a company named after a character in Halo itself - took on the challenge with Bungie's blessing. With the seeding of a few key ex-Bungie employees into the studio and a guarantee that the resurrection of Halo comes entirely as a result from this new studio, 343 and MS intend to let people know that this beloved franchise is alive and well. The result is Halo 4, a return to the adventures of the series' main protagonist - supersoldier Master Chief - and his dealings with the reawakening of the Forerunners, an ancient race of beings that created the Halo installations seen in the previous games." (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 8/10
