IGN - 30 Days Later: Halo 4

IGN - The Halo series is known for vast alien landscapes, dramatic battles, sweeping music, and a light dusting of world-shattering explosions. But in a cacophony of fire and smoke, who knew that the most thrilling moments of Halo 4 would be Cortana's shuddered breaths, and Chief's reassurance that everything would be okay? (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Over all, I was somewhat disappointed with Halo 4. Now, this does not in any way mean that I think it was bad, because it definitely was not. I think they did an amazing job on the graphics, and I think the story and plot were fantastic. The things that I were let down by were the new weapons, I didn't really like them this time around, and of course the multiplayer. I don't think it's bad, but I mean I've played 2 hours or so since release and I don't see myself going back to it any more already. I played the hell out of Halo 3 and Reach, both really amazing. Halo 4 doesn't feel special to me, and I really don't even see it having long legs with the fans either, not when compared to Halo 2 and 3, or even Reach. I don't even hear much about it any more honestly.

It's one of my favourite FPS's of all time, as I judge games on their single player.

I agree with the MP. I might try it out after they released a patch yesterday apparently. No dedicated servers really hurts countries with a small population (Australia, New Zealand), and you get constant lag.

While the new weapons looked quite cool, I didn't really FEEL them. The light rifle felt off. The scattershot felt weak (and is weaker than the boltshot and shotgun, although it shoots faster), the suppressor feels like a more inaccurate assault rifle.

The boltshot was ok (love the charge shot), and the Binary Rifle is amazing.

Overall, I absolutely loved Halo 4. I won't let the MP detract from my experience, as living in Australia, pretty much all MP is laggy anyway :(

Anyways, I'm SR 48. That was from a bit over a week of playing. I gave up after a while. Everyone seemed to ship off onto CoD :(

Reach sucked and you know it. While still fun, Halo 4 far exceeds its replay value.

And I know it? Wtf is that? I believe Reach was a fantastic game, and had much higher replay value. We all have different opinions, you have no right to tell me what I must like and dislike.

I loved Halo 4s story and graphics, but I feel it tried taking itself too seriously. I mean we cant even understand the grunts anymore. They used to be funny and lighten up the game some.

And I agree about the new weapons, simply because it was obvious that each races weapons mirrored each other. Basically there were 3 different versions of each gun, with some exceptions.

But otherwise the game was amazing. I just got my first 360 and played Halo 3, then went straight to Halo 4 and was blown away by the difference.

I love it to, but the Prometheons and their weapons were a bit of a letdown. 343 should have used a bit more imagination rather than just making the same 4 or 5 generic weapon types.

seems like a good game to me

My biggest problem with the game is that it's got me pining for halo 5.

I was a bit disappointed with the Prometheans, three variations of enemies didn't seem enough. Their weapons were a bit 'meh' except for the incineration cannon.

If the watchers don't return for halo 5 i won't be upset, annoying little bastards.

I love it and will be playing the hell out of it for some time.

My only complaint is that some of the standard maps feel so foreign compared to past maps in prior titles. I'm really hoping that the new DLC maps bring back that familiarity.
