Halo 4 Review | IGN

IGN - As usual, of course, the fate of the universe rests on Master Chief’s long-dormant shoulders – the green-armored super-soldier has been on ice aboard the Forward Unto Dawn since Halo 3 faded to black five years ago – but this time our hero bears an even greater burden.

Don't have a 360, but I was a hardcore Halo 1 fan, so it sucks that I'm missing out. Halo is such an phenomenal franchise, I can't help but get excited.

Regardless, I'm glad 343 did such a great job.

Everyone was afraid of putting Halo in the hands of a new development studio. Luckily they have not let us down. Keeping the title of greatest First Person Shooter franchise of all time.

The Xbox 360 has aged gracefully, even at the end of its lifespan the 360 is still able to produce industry leading gaming experiences. Possibly and likely game of the year quality. Halo 4 is finally here. Cheers to a good time.

Rated E For Everyone

NukaCola4219d ago

Crazy high score of IGN. Haven't seen them give a score like this in ages, even with the minor nitpicks. Either way, the game looks pretty damn good. Halo is fun and I'll get it sometime soon. Glad to see 343 did a good job on this one.

^^uncharted 3 got a 10 from IGN, just sayin.. so anyways i had my doubts with the new developer and all, but congrats to 343, good thing i have both 360 and pas3 so i get the best of both worlds

Kingdom Come4219d ago (Edited 4219d ago )

@ Martinez

Uncharted 3 was given a 10 back when IGN restricted themselves to .5's in their reviews, making them round up to the nearest .5. They listed flaws for Uncharted, but Greg Miller wanted to give it a 10 regardless.

This review was written superbly and truly highlighted Halo 4's magnificence. I prefer their reviews now that they've returned to their older scoring system, the reviewers can be more free with their scoring, and if I'm not mistaken, Halo 4 is the highest scoring game since they returned to the current scoring system. Again, 343 did a tremendous job.

Someone just HAD to mention Uncharted in this thread

/facepalm

Dose the story arc standalone or is it a cliffhanger ending?

SuperLupe4219d ago

Same here man ... just got myself thinking of getting another 360 just for this.

I left home for studies so left my 360 for my little bro's and bought a PS3 for myself.

Maybe I'll just get the one of those 4GB models second hand. That is if the game/multiplayer doesnt require some kind of mandatory install. Anyway, I absolutely HAVE to play this.

unchartedxplorer4219d ago

crusedernm. Yeah, wait until GTA V comes out

mewhy324219d ago

Wow, the reviewer said this was the best game on any system!!!!!

RAZORLAND4219d ago

so when did IGN go back to the 100 point scale?

EVILDEAD3604219d ago

A huge salute to 343 studios for pulling off what some thought was impossible..

You could feel that something special was brewing over there this entire time.

This may be the greatest collection of talent put together in the history of gaming.

Been a massive fan of Halo and Bungie from the old Giant box debut all the way through to Reach.

But it's official...the Baton has officially been passed.

Just a few more days..Can't wait

Life is good

darthv724219d ago

im surprised you still do not have a 360. I can recall a few years back you saying you want one but the reliability was a factor.

so even after they have made a better system you still dont have one....oh well.

Do yourself a favor and get one. then you can play this game and many other games in the 360 library. There really is nothing wrong with playing the field.

Jinkies4219d ago

I can't to get Halo 4

Off Topic

@LX-General-Kaos

How does this guy keep getting bubbles, he's such a fake. The Rated E for everyone crap is just plain annoying now.

gaffyh4219d ago

@darth - Tbh though, now it's got to a point where it's almost not worth buying an Xbox 360 or PS3 (if you don't already have one or you have one of the other) because next gen consoles are right round the corner.

darthv724219d ago

yeah i can agree. But there is really nothing wrong with having both at some point.

I encourage those with only a 360 to get a ps3. It isnt an evil system that many proclaim it to be.

Same with those who only have a ps3. the 360 does a nice job of going well with the ps3. Those who stick to their guns and only support one, you have more strength than me.

Im a console whore who loves to play field..

@LX-General-Kaos

You mean the Microsoft™ Xbox 360® Entertainment System.

:P

pixelsword4218d ago (Edited 4218d ago )

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Good job 343!

I usually don't like IGN Reviews, though because they're fullabull, but how can you hate Halo?

guitarded774218d ago

I've never been a big Halo fan. I've played the games and like them, but not really a must play kinda game for me. Until now that is... 343 clearly has a better understanding of the XBOX hardware than Bungie did, and Halo 4 looks beautiful. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Sarcasm4218d ago

Gotta say this game is looking pretty damn good. Haven't been excited about a 360 game since the first Gears of War.

Bravo 343

Even though I don't own a 360, I love Halo.

Its been tradition since Halo 1 that me and my cousin split screen the campaign

Congrats 343

slixshot4219d ago

how does one disagree with this comment? What, you disagree that he's played Halo 1 with his cousin?

zgoldenlionz4219d ago

I rarely touch my 360 but there's always the exception when a new halo comes out. Glad to see this one looks to be pretty great, too bad I'll have to go buy another battery pack for my controller I don't want to run thru tons of double A batteries while playing this game.
