DailyGame-Halo 4 Review

DG:It’s very nice to have the Master Chief back where he belongs in the Halosphere. The past few entries with Bungie at the helm have dabbled with other Spartan and Helljumping characters, but with 343 Industries now steering the ship, Halo 4 brings the franchise back where it began: Master Chief and Cortana battling to save the universe and themselves. It’s that second bit that creates the most intriguing elements in Halo 4, the reasons for which I’ll get into later, because everything else feels instantly familiar. The trouble is, since this is the fourth Master Chief game, that familiarity isn’t a good thing. Halo 4 struggles to serve too many masters, resulting in jarring gameplay elements that detract from an outstanding narrative. In fact, Halo 4 would’ve been a better film than videogame, because the other, newer FPS franchises have far surpassed this once-premier series (Halo 4, Xbox 360) 7.5/10
