Halo 4 Review: Daily Joystick Podcasts

Larry from Daily Joystick Podcast writes "Halo fans freaked out like grunts without a leader when they found out that Bungie was handing over the Halo franchise to another developer. Many thought that justice could not be done. I wasn’t one of those people. Those people were wrong. I won’t bother listing all the names of all the talented people and all the places from which they came to create this game. That road is far too long to go down and it’s been pointed out ad nauseam elsewhere. Besides the proof is always in the pudding, and this pudding is so good that armed with a needler and a spoon, Bill Cosby tried to jack some from an ODST in the mess hall." (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 10/10

I enjoyed halo 4 but 10/10 should be reserved for only the most amazing of titles an halo is not broad enough ranging IMO but I suppose it's all opinion these days, little subjectivity in reviews.

Well, the way I see it is it has best in class Gameplay and Graphics (on console, not THE best but in top 5 EASY)!

Story is debatable, I really enjoyed it as I am a huge Halo fan, and read the books. At the very least they captured the emotion between the 'Chief' and Cortana expertly.

Multi-player, while I stopped playing it, it is still very well done. Commendations, Unlocks, lots of game-types, Forge, Theatre etc.

On content alone it is a 10. Lets face it, 10's are handed out like dollar bills these days, but at least Halo 4 deserves it more than 90% of other games that get them IMO.

I think you mean there's little objectivity in reviews, there's plenty of subjectivity :P There's little objectivity in the comments though...

10/10 is too high for a game with the same recycled gameplay formula...SURE, it's been perfected but the franchise needs to evolve, reboot, IMO.

the game is fun, funnest i've had since halo 2, everything about it imo is just perfect, but like this series, every gamer has their own like, i grew up with the halo games, the halo series holds a special place in my life. When i first booted up halo 4, I instantley went wow, everything had been redone including little things like sounds to everything, but manages to make the game feel very unfrustrating, every part to it is fast and block free.

I've still not finished it, not had all that much free time lately, but what I've experienced so far is great, you can't really score a game until you've finished it but so far it feels like a 9 or 10 to me.
