Excellent game and definitely one of the best games this gen. 343 pulled off a masterpiece.

FarCryLover1822352d ago

It's definitely a good game for sure.

Nexgensensation2351d ago

no other fps series in this generation of gaming come close.
if you played halo from the 1st to the 3rd then you should know that halo is of those games that can stand the test of time.

now these days us gamers are so caught up measuring the success of one game by the units they sell. In most case this would be a problem but for halo, being that not only the series sold more 65+million. the series come complete with a multidimensional story through out the entire series and with top of the line multiplayer.

Halo is a combination of creativity, success, and modern day sophistication.

Lets see what the custom game community thinks about halo 4..

As a veteran halo player i must say that halo 4 is a big disapointment to me, but not just me, also a large part of the custom game and forge community.

As there is little to no support for awesome custon game variants (that where possible in bungie's titles)

Which is one of the many things that 343 left out of halo

Imo the only reason that halo 4 is a decent game is because microsoft gave 343 a blank cheque to make the game.

Even a kindergarten would make a awesome game with unlimited money.

343 is just profiting out of bungie's succes and taking credit for multiple things like the engine, which is made by bungie, and the cutscenes who are done by axis animation..

Other then that, the absence of campaign scoring, the awfull playlists and un-symetrical and too large maps make this the worst halo i ever played...

Elit3Nick2351d ago

343 said that they are working on implementing a proper custom games search system soon :)

I prefer Reach.

dirthurts2352d ago

Wha? I really didn't enjoy Reach at all.
Not that it was a bad game, I just wasn't feeling it.

FriedGoat2352d ago

Reach had better campaign, that's for sure. The Halo 4 campaign was just confusing and very unhalo.

NeverEnding19892352d ago (Edited 2352d ago )

Reach had some good qualities (Invasion is the greatest gametype ever), but I tend to agree with the majority. I didn't feel Bungie was giving it their all when developing Reach. Story, maps, multiplayer support...IMO all were seriously lacking in Reach.

And I agree with above, Halo 4 is easily one of the best games of this generation. Certainly one of the greatest in regards to longevity.


Bungie handed the reins over to 343 after I had stopped playing it.

Zodiac2352d ago

Bungie didn't so online for Reach. 343i did the online.

aviator1892352d ago

you might want to check your facts again...

bungie wast the sole developer of reach. certain affinity did some of the dlc, and 343i updated some playlists and gametypes like rotating forge maps.

Zodiac2352d ago

@aviator189. Just checked. Yeah, seems i was wrong. Could have sworn that they developed the multiplayer. I apologize to my avatar.

FarCryLover1822352d ago

@Zodiac, I think you are just confused about that because 343i took over the job of running the Reach servers and playlists.

I think Reach had a great story. The multiplayer was great, but the maps were lacking. That said, I liked more maps in Reach than I do so far in 4. Ragnarok and Exile are my favorites and like Complex and Haven, but I just tolerate the rest.

NewZealander2352d ago

reach was good but that damn motion blur killed it, even plants swaying had motion blur WTF, it made the game look muddy and hurt my eyes.

i tried playing it again the other week but after playing halo 4 i just couldn't do it.

TheColbertinator2351d ago

I didn't mind the motion blur.I loved the "glow" it gave to many of the weapons and maps.

Halo 4 is an awesome game, but not the best 360 game. I don't even think it's the best Halo game, that award would have to go to Halo 3. I wasted too many hours playing the multiplayer of 3, and I regret none of it. 4's campaign is better than 3's, but what's the deal with 4 only shipping with 10 multiplayer maps? And with only 9 more maps on the way? Anyone else tired of playing on I can't say it...VAHALLA? Spartan Ops is a joke, too. I won't be wasting money on Season 2.

FarCryLover1822352d ago

I don't think they are going to come out with S2 of Spartan Ops.

SJPFTW2352d ago

I agree with you even though I am enjoying Halo 4. For one they have not balanced armor abilities and just added more bullshit. Armor lock was terrible and so is active Camo. In Halo 4 just guys hiding in corners with Camo on.

I missed the days of Halo 3, 2 and 1

grayfoxx8812352d ago

Don't get me wrong, I really like Halo 4's campaign and multiplayer, the community just needs more 4 vs. 4 slayer maps. The Crimson maps look like they're BTB maps, but from what I'm reading not many people are impressed with them.

Yeah the camo is a little annoying. It either works extremely well or not at all. I usually spot the little bastards hiding in corners, but the other night someone got me with the Spartan Laser while I was in a Mantis. He was crouching on a hill...with camo...sonofabitch.

NewZealander2351d ago

yeah the story in halo 3 was kinda all over the place, for me halo 4 has the best story, and halo 2 was pretty cool also, ive never played multi player on a halo game until now, and i love it! but damn i gotta agree theres not enough maps and im sick to death of ragnarock, why is it so popular? i find it a bore!

spicelicka2352d ago

Definitely. Extremely underrated game, and there's a reason the ratings are 100s to random 50s, because some idiots don't understand how to play the game. It's a sandbox game so you carve your own experience, halo doesn't mouth feed you which is why some reviewers play it once just to finish it, and think it wasn't satisfying.

I don't get why the multiplayer is being disliked. I freaking loveeeit! Sure 2 and 3 had amazing multiplayer modes but most of that is from nostalgia. Halo 4 multiplayer has already managed to keep me genuinely addicted and the nostalgia isn't even gonna kick in for another year.

Tctczach2352d ago

Halo 4 just didnt do it for me.The first Mass Effect is still one of best games ever in my opinion. Even though it is not an exclusive anymore.

Belking2352d ago

So what does being exclusive have to do with how good a game is?

Tctczach2352d ago

Read the title of the article again. It talks about how Halo 4 is the best Xbox game of all time. I am saying I thought Mass Effect was the best Xbox game until it became non exclusive and went multiplatform.
