Halo 4 Review - The Digital Fix

The Halo franchise has long been the killer app for Microsoft, shifting huge numbers of Xbox consoles as well as Xbox 360s not to mention selling millions and millions of copies of the numerous Bungie produced games over the last ten years. Halo 3 completed the original trilogy, ending our adventures with Master Chief so Bungie and the hoards of Halo fans moved on to other adventures, Reach being the standout. Every dog has its day and Bungie were always unlikely to work on the franchise forever and eventually when the announcement came that they would be handing over the reigns to 343 Industries it didn’t shock many. 343 Industries are a Microsoft studio and had worked previously on Halo map packs as well as the recent Halo Anniversary edition, reducing the risk of moving to another somewhat, however if you consider the franchise had managed to amass upwards of $3billion the pressure was almost certainly huge. Rest easy Halo lovers, 343 did just fine.. (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 8/10
