Halo 4 Review (NGN)

New Game Network: "Halo 4 is a game that takes few risks, like an energy sword that you can always depend on. It is the first entry in what is set to be another trilogy series for the ever-popular Master Chief. The franchise has now moved on from original creators Bungie Software to the newly formed 343 Industries, who at the closing moments of the game thank the fans for trusting them with the franchise and promising greater things in the future. And fans should trust them indeed, for Halo 4 plays it very safe with everything from story to gameplay, so even the most hardcore will be pleased with the new developers. With such high production values and genuine attention to detail, it’s also easy to forget that you may have seen this all before." (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 85/100

What is with this "takes few risks" crap?

Did Uncharted 3 take huge risks? Did God of War 3? Witcher 2?

The answer is no. They were just awesome games. Halo 4 is an awesome game as well. It changes things up enough to keep things fresh, while maintaining core aspects which give the franchise its identity.
