I'm pretty excited as well for having Frank O'Conner back on board at the helm of a new halo trilogy. I just hope Halo 4 maintains the core halo feel that all halo titles before reach were known for.
Although i dont have the privilege of owning a 360, i know for a fact the Halo multi-player is the most polished and 'skill' required game on consoles. That was Bungie's legacy, will be interesting to see what this new studio can do.
its far from being the most polished, there's always been a couple of balancing issues i believe with its mp. though most mp do their issues. though i thought bad company 2's mp was a pretty tight experience.
@pixel, you are pretty late with that .gif image. please stop now.
Yeah. I am excited to see what they do with Halo. New areas and enemies would be nice. They could also add some neck twisting and stomping to the up close combat. These things make you feel more aggressive and personal.
blah blah blah. Do we really need articles like this for EVERY sequel to EVERY game?
Yeah we need articles like this to keep the hype up. I am looking for any incentive to like this game again like Halo Combat Evolved, which I thought was the best one.
So you're saying you need repetitive articles for each major sequel release in order to be excited for something? This website has just turned into a dump of recycled stories with different game names and top 10 lists.
Bobrea# If you don't like this article then don't comment simple as that. Since you said repetitive articles, then are you going to repeat yourself in every last one to get your point a cross? I will answer that for you lol!!! No.
@bobrea this is actually a great read if you're a halo fan and provides insight into what can make halo 4 a superb entry into the series, so this isn't just "blah blah blah."
Better than Halo 1 and 2?....I hope so. I have pretty high hopes for this game because I honestly didn't like Reach compared to Halo 3. If this game turns out to be a flop, I guess I could always fall back on Halo 1 HD remake ;D
I Expect Halo 4 to be much better than the last trilogy of Halo games. I want to get that feeling of a whole new experience and adventure like Halo Combat Evolved did. Where the Covenant didn't really speak english(well except for the grunts at times) and were more feared upon. Where you first heard the music theme, from beginning to end that gives you a great feeling about the game. When your first time going through the Library, when you first encounter The Flood. Halo Combat Evolved was longer and larger than Halo 2 and 3. I want Halo 4 multiplayer to revolutionize what Halo 2 did when Halo first went online Live.
I would like to see two iterations of multiplayer for Halo 4. I would like to see the competative aspect that we see now, with maps and competitive play that we are used to. But I would love to be able to see a multiplayer world that we can take over in our online battles. Similar to Red Dead Redemption. Think about it... being able to jump in a vehicle and go from location to location in it. Battling enemies encampments at each location with friends online. I just want more of an online world then what we have now... free roaming and Halo need to go hand in hand in the next generation of Halo. Even being able to travel to different worlds would be nice if developed properly.
I agree that having him back on board is good, especially if he has spent the last few years working on it. IMO though, reach was a much better game than halo 3, which was simply tired even at its release. I do love master chief though and we all knew he would b back. But three little numbers will sum up how good halo 4 can truely b...720. Is it the launching title of 2012? It will sell alot of xbox,s and it could mean a true single generation trilogy like mass effect, which brings me to my second point. Can halo once again b defining? Can they simply use kinnect, or can they b the first to really merger single and multiplayer? Will we see and fps w more character in the vein of bioshock or choice like in mass effect? The new hardware is almost essential but it is time to step it up again. I have really, really high hopes for u master chief.
The author talks of the Flood being an impossibility in being a part of the new trilogy due to their demise. But doesn't he realize the flood was not killed only stopped for a short while? I hope that new creatures and alien races will be presented in this next trilogy but also hoping that it ties in with the whole story of Halo. Is it really Halo if the original idea of the Halo itself is not present in the next trilogy? Might as well call the game Master Chief instead of Halo if they are not going to include the Halo ring into the story at all.
1 reason its guaranteed to fail, no bungie.
