A massive Halo 4 review.
9.9 is a stupid rating. Just give it a 10 or a 9.5
at least the 9.9 is somewhat realistic. 10's are the "perfect" score to which we know there is no such thing. 10's have been thrown around so much this gen that it is impossible to take a "10" seriously. While a 9.5 might seem logical, a score like this (9.9) implies it is right at that edge of perfection (to this reviewer) but there is room for improvement. To each their own i guess.
It should be 9.6 or 9.7 if you want to be correct. (Calculated 10+10+9 = 29 / 3 = 9.66xxxx A 9.9 is for school tests in lower grades, not for game reviewers. I mean no game is perfect. There is also room for improvements / bug fixes you name it.
How about when you run your own website you can rate any game however you want to?
What..? I can rate the games I review how I want, I just say that giving a 9.9 for a game is stupid and has no extra value than giving the game a 9.5 or a 10
What's more important is how stupid it is to give a linear corridor shooter a 9.9
I dont remember killzone getting any 9.9 so I dont know what you are talking about.
You think Halo 4 is a corridor shooter?... ...ok.
I do, because it is, i'm not trashing the multiplayer, but the single player is as dull and linear as any other FPS these days.
Aviator, MrAnderson is right.:) Halo 4 in it's core is old school point & shoot FPS. Go there and do that and stuff like that. Read the review.:)
Lol, MrAnderson. You seem to contradict yourself. From your previous comments... "Here's a tip, don't play Halo's Multiplayer, that was never what made the games good, it's tacked on crap, like every FPS includes these days. #1" So in your previous comment you're saying the multiplayer was crap and the single player was what the made the game good. Now you're saying the multiplayer is good but the single player is crap? Make up your mind! I also find it surprising you seem to hate the "linearity" of Halo but loved a lot of the previous Call of Duty's and and also have high hopes for Black Ops 2... "If you don't like COD, don't play it, but let the people that do, do what they want, oh, and this is coming from someone who HATED Modern Warfare 3 (didn't buy it, played for about 5 hours at a friends, and hate everything about it) but I loved cod 4/black ops, mw2 would have been decent if it had any semblance of balance, and have already bought black ops 2 on steam because I appreciate that 3arc actually put some work into this title, unlike activision that are copy pasting the same crap year after year. in short, shut up and let people play/like what they want, you don't like COD? then don't play it or read about it." Yeah...343 SURE hasn't put any effort into Halo 4...*sarcasm*
