Halo 4 Review: Does 343 fill the void that Bungie left? | Nerd Reactor

Nerd Reactor: "When we look back at the task 343 was handed, it was obnoxiously large. What they’ve done is taken a franchise fans hold dearly and made it even more better than most of us could have hoped for. The campaign was a joy to go through and the story was well written. The soundtrack kept you tied to your seat and immersed you even further. The multiplayer leaves you white-knuckled from the insane firefights and tense battles, but has you begging for more. Spartan Ops I don’t really need, but it adds to the story." (Halo 4, Xbox 360) A/A+

I think they surpassed bungie. Bungie really lost me at Halo 3. The storyline just degraded upon reintroducing the flood into the game. And the Cortona Effect killed replayability.
Now what 343 can reintroduce for the next game is some nestalgia from Halo and Halo 2.
What i liked about Halo 2 strictly campaign was the difference in layouts of maps and how each enemy contributed by that.
on Installation 05. When you first land out of your drop pod. you introduced to snipers,elites and grunts gangbanging you from the get go. You dont really get that sensation unless your playing spartan ops and then it just feels like firefight mode and that gets old rather quick.

I totally get what your saying Halo 3 didn't really do it for me the way halo 1 did. But it seems 343i are doing a great job with halo 4. I think the hardest thing for them would be to keep the series going as Halo 4 had almost everything. Besides them improving the graphics and giving a longer campaign i don't see them needing to improve much.
