Why Halo 4 is a disappointment

Halo 4 is not a bad game, but the multiplayer component is weak compared to Halo Reach. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Wait...so this Examiner link just sends me to an IGN blog post...?
GuyManDude  +   764d ago
Yup. Just about anyone can become an examiner writer. It's basically a blog hub that you can get paid for (based on how many hits you get). Examiner sites are rampant with "gaming journalists" that simply steal stories and opinion pieces from other sites.

Here is the IGN blog piece, what people should be clicking instead:

I should also note that this isn't an IGN staff piece. It's just an IGN user trying to get hits on his Examiner page, which will then get him hits on his IGN blog, which has a link to his YouTube video.

In other words, he's begging pretty hard for hits.

Not a dissapointment
Love Halo 4's Campaign. Love Spartan Op. Bumgie edges them on what came with Reach day multi on day one.

Halo 4 is finally catching up by adding Grif Ball and other faves.

But the difference maker is Spartan Ops continues episodically which is essentially having an on-going campaign.

Far from a disappointment especialy the campaign.

IN MY OPINION, Halo 4's multiplayer is not as good as Reach or even 3. I was pretty disappointed when I got my hands on it. Mainly disappointed because I was excited for the game.

"Halo 4's multiplayer is not as good as Reach"

ummm...did you even play Reach?
Hufandpuf  +   764d ago
yeah. at least it felt like halo and not call of duty.
turnerdc  +   762d ago
Halo 4 doesn't feel like CoD either. At least they're implementing new things to change up the game play. Isn't that the biggest complaint with CoD anyway? That they never change anything and the game is the same rehashed multiplayer that's getting stale? Overall though, even with the changes made, Halo 4 definitely doesn't feel like CoD.

A lot of people are furious with the changes 343 made. There are the COD-style changes like loadouts and ordnance drops. There are the changes to the Halo formula like flinch, instant respawn, and random weapon spawn times.

Then there's the fact that the game launched without the traditional Halo ranking system, and after matches you play the same group of people until you back out.

I played hundreds of hours of Halo, Halo 2, and Halo 3. If I owned a 360, I'd be pretty upset if I had bought Halo 4.

343: STOP messing with a proven formula and STOP molding your game around Call of Duty.

I disagree with everything you said and I played every Halo as well.

343: Please feel free to make changes to the formula to keep the game fresh and new NOT stale and OLD.
hellvaguy  +   764d ago
If you didn't constantly tweak the formula of any great series, many more people would claim the game is now unoriginal and stale. Also, they would say why play the sequel, its the same as the previous installments.

Point is, some change has to happen. If your the type that is an absolute fundamentalist and opposed to any amount of change (good or bad), just do yourself a favor and never buy a sequel to any game.
GuyManDude  +   763d ago
I'm not opposed to change in general (Halo 3 was significantly different from Halo 2 and I enjoyed the changes). I'm opposed to turning Halo into Call of Duty. I'm opposed to not having ranked games for THREE MONTHS. Things like that.

The game should change with each release, but not these changes.
Allsystemgamer  +   764d ago
So by NOT implementing changes it stays the same which is CODS biggest fault. It never changes.

Loadouts make sense. Not everyone wants to play DMR all the time or BR all the time like h3 and Reach became.

I like starting with an AR. In the older games and rushing for better weapons.

With loadouts I can do just that.

Meh the thing that pissed me off about Halo 4 was also slightly damaged in Reach, but not as much. In 4 custom games has been so crippled, you can customise so little in comparison to what was available in 3, similarly, they've taken away lots of forge items, given no love to custom gamers, forgers or machinma directors. Also seriously, the games been out since November and the file share system is still F*cked, Oh and still to file browser, which was Avaliable upon Reach's launch and implemented in 3.

Even with the issues i've stated I much prefere Halo 4 to Reach, but It is nowhere near the level of a Game which Halo 3 was. Easily the most complete game of this generation.

I guest they going to give us halo 4 ODLC 2 lmao.

You people that complain about 343 making changes to Halo are the same ones that make fun of CoD because it never changes. Great logic there. I see nothing wrong with 343's changes in Halo 4. It's one of the funnest multiplayer games I've ever played and I think 343 is doing a great job so far. I look forward to what they can bring to the table with Halo 5 next-gen.
