RipTen Review: Halo 4 (360)

We so often use the word “universe” to classify sub-sections of fiction. The use of that term is never more appropriate than when referring to Microsoft’s blockbuster Halo franchise. Bungie, and now 343 Industries, created a trans-media experience spanning books, animation, short-form fiction in the form of clever advertising and, of course, videogames. For that reason, enjoyment and comprehension of Halo 4′s single player experience will likely depend on how much of the material outside of the game you’ve taken the time to consume. (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

I still need to finish Halo 3 and Halo: Reach before I get this game, but the positive reviews have me tempted to just dive into it. Looks awesome.

Excellently written review. I am very excited to finally dive into this one, and the review only has me more pumped. I enjoyed Reach but it didn't grab me like previous Halo games did. Sounds like this one may rejuvenate my love of the franchise.
