Halo 4 Xbox 360 Game Microsoft Reviews

Like seeing a friend i haven't seen in years.

Pros: By far the best looking Halo to date and possibly the best looking 360 game, for the most part retains Halo feel the series set.

Cons: A few performance drops on split screen as the hardware age is showing, multiplayer has been essentially mainstreamed, shortest Halo to date as well.

I'll admit i never thought they would pull it off but it's a pretty good game. Reviews are great (albeit a little too great). I myself am enjoying the campaign a lot. Graphically it's one of the best looking console games and the best looking halo, which adds to the immersion somewhat. Lensflare is a little too much at times so make sure to wear shades The voice acting, motion detection, and sounds are all great additions. I really and i mean really love the revamped sounds of the game. Overdone or not there were guns in halo 3 that just didn't sound like you were firing a gun, which made them feel not as powerful. I skipped Reach, despite it's story i was in the beta and wasn't...

Best Halo game I've played

Pros: Everything

Cons: Some minor graphical and multiplayer glitches

I'm going to make this short and sweet: -I didn't pre-order Halo 4, right until the day before the launch, as I wasn't convinced about 343, nor the look of Halo 4. -I have owned all the Halo's in the past, and finished them all on Legendary too. -I was busy playing BF3 and Borderlands 2, and didn't really need a game Result, after playing for around 2 weeks: -Haven't even touched borderlands or BF3 -Finished the campaign on Legendary, and found it to be the most compelling storyline in the Halo industry -Multiplayer is so damn fun, that it makes Reach look bad. Furthermore, the games are balanced, the maps are great, and they all work seamlessly. -Matchmaking is fast -Credit structure...

Halo 4 Review

Pros: Great presentation, good use of Bloom & FXAA, good multiplayer game modes, great campaign for long time fans of lore.

Cons: Some features not present for those who like to tinker with Forge, story may confuse gamers new to the franchise. Spartan Ops unplayable offline.

So... Bungie are out and 343 Studios are in, but the most important thing to most people is what this means for the Halo franchise? I think I can safely say that 343 are taking Halo in the right direction. Sure it may be missing some features veterans of Halo are accustomed to, and that may be reinserted within a later update anyway, but it's more the manner of which 343 have handled bringing Halo 4 together that matters most.   Presentation is strong, with many CGI cutscenes instead of rendered cutscenes from the game engine, showing that more time has been put into bringing the series to life. Throw the heavily improved graphics engine on top and you're in for a rather...
