The only thing I can really complain about is probably the length, I just wished it was a bit longer. I'd rather have that then Sparten Ops and then let them do Sparten Ops as DLC after they finish the game, something I feel Valve should of done with Portal 2s DLC. It's a lot easier adding in a seperate mode for a game then it is to make single player DLC for the campaign.

The other nit picking complaint would be the music, it's not very Halo like. It's epic but not Halo epic.

I mean compare this which is basicaly a differnt variation of the Halo theme song

I think I only heard a little bit of the main Halo theme near the end of the campaign. I don't see why he didn't expand of some of the Halo theme.

Ahem. This song pays homage to One Final Effort, the song you put up from Halo 3 at about 6:00. Not only that, but it has a very clear theme, and is masterfully composed.

Halo 4's OST is fantastic. Neil Davidge is not Martin O'Donnell or vice versa. I can appreciate what both bring to the Halo table.

Loved the campaign in almost every way. No major complaints in that regard as it exeeded my expectations.

But I will say that Bungie's magical touch in multiplayer has not been topped. With that said I do love how addicting multi is, but Bungie threw the kitchen sink at Reach and IMO 343i still has didn't outdo the team at Bungie.

They could have given the game away for free and people would still complain. Drives me nuts. They didn't have to make he game and nobody is forced to buy it. Bunch of whiners.

I didn't like Reach Evil, worst MP for me... I however really H4's MP.

Smkt1349d ago

agree with Jinkies... didn't really like the 4 ost, it's not bad, just average and forgetful. The Music doesn't really pump you up while playing.
how can you not have the main halo theme in the game.

Psychonaughty1349d ago

I for one was sick of the main theme even if I am a massive fan of O'Donnell.

Try again.

Just kidding.

"•Scrolling through players in the scoreboard is more difficult. Instead of holding back and using the right analog stick to move through them, you must use the d-pad."

Um, so it's "more difficult" to use 1 button instead of 2? The d-pad is literally a couple of centimetres to the left of the analogue stick. Some people.

RedSoakedSponge1349d ago

it is an annoyance. since you have to hold back while scrolling with the dpad. the annoyance comes from how close together the dpad and back button is. feels very unnatural. dont understand why they chose this.

RedSoakedSponge1349d ago

this does seem to be nitpicking. halo 4 is an incredible experience and excellent value for money.

I absolutely LOVED Halo 4! Bravo 343! Can't wait for the sequels! :) Campaign is AMAZING!(on my 2nd playthrough solo on Legendary) Technically it is the best looking game of this entire generation together with Uncharted 2-3!(personal opinion)
Multiplayer is sooooooo good!!!! I can't stop playing... Also Spartan Ops is a second campaign so even thought the game is like 8 hours long in Heroic, they basically gave us a second campaign...(i haven't started Spartan Ops, since my schedule is full with the campaign and multiplayer, but i am hearing really good things from friends from live)

otherZinc1349d ago

@tompoulo,
Agreed!
I'm on my 2nd play-through solo on Legendary as well. I've yet to experience Spartan Ops. I'll play this for a while. Haven't played co-op yet, I will this weekend.

I did like campaign scoring, the main Halo musical theme I'd like to hear, Firefight, And most of all they'd better never have a COD like "second" ever again (like at the begening of the game or the end of the game!). It was only a second, but I absolutely HATE that!

None the less FANTASTIC GAME! GOTY for me!

ILive1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

I like the campaign, but it was significantly short. The graphics are good but, in my personal opinion, not as good as everyone is making it out to be. It is, however, the best halo as ever looked. So, my only complaint (since I don't have live) would be short campaign and lack of variety in which most missions can be tackled. The story also left more to be desired in the latter parts of the game.
