Halo 4 Thoughts & Opinions

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just finished Halo Reach and Halo 3, reach was the superior campaign, really impressive!

So it looks like we're going to see Halo 4 this year, what are your guys thought and opinions on what you would like to see, what you would like, etc..?

Please no nonsensical trolling of halo.

I feel like Master Chiefs story is finished in halo 3 and it seems kinda forced to bring him back out for halo 4, I'd like to see a new character take the reins, bring in something new and fresh, maybe a younger less experienced Spartan?

Also I love the storytelling in Halo Reach but id like to see new enemies too.

Finally a campaign mode that allows 4v4 where the other team takes control of enemies would be sweet, like left 4 dead team versus sort of, I think that would spice up multiplayer big time.

If it's not broken, don't fix it.

Chief is back, per the Halo 3 ending and the new trailer. What they're heading toward is still hotly debated. Shield world? Forerunner? Precursor? All viable options. If you're looking for Halo'ish stuff, I'd recommend reading the new Forerunner series, 2 of the 3 books are already out but they're really intriguing and 343 said there's going to be a lot of relevant information used from the series that will be in Halo 4 so it's well worth a read if you're into that.

I'm ready to get back to the Chief, honestly. We've had two big Halo titles without him.

Have you tried ODST? I found it to be quite decent.

I'm assuming you played Halo 1 and 2. If you liked the campaign, make sure you play those.

That would be hard. Unless more magically appear out of a wormhole, Chief is the only Spartan II left as far as I know, and Spartan IIIs aren't as powerful/badass.

I think if 343 / Microsoft studios = halo 4 = ???

Halo CE anniversary edition.. was.. BAD is all I have to say. If that turd was considered a final product I am quite worried what will be done with halo 4.

I have played all the halo games/ beat them all on legendary and own: 3, ODST, Reach and CE anniversary.

Reach is by far the best, I am quite sad bungie is not making 4.

Yah I loved Halo 1 on the original xbox but I didn't really see the value in the anniversary edition, although I noticed microsoft releases a new halo game every year now.

Why they wasted processing power and resources by allowing you to switch to the original engine midgame is bizarre to me.

The only one I haven't played is ODST campaign and Halo Wars if that counts. 343 industries has some bungie people in it apparently so hopefully they can get it together.

Also, it's not just Halo 4. 343 is creating another trilogy so that means Halo 4, 5 and 6. I'm a fanboy so I'll play them all but the story is what drives me.

Story is good for halo.. But if they fail multi player, nerf controls and produce sub par visuals count me out for being a fan boy.

To everyone that enjoys halo and has not played odst.. It's a good game, its just a bit different from the standard halo games (in a good way) smile.gif, worth 50$? Idk I would say it's solidly worth 30$ and brings a dark atmosphere where your running scared and a bit weaker-your a human no shields.. It's good fun. But I like tough games smile.gif

They made that option of switching between the graphics so you can enjoy both the old graphic of the year it came out in 2000 or you can enjoy it with the new graphics from 2012.

Make sure to play ODST.

Possibly the best single-player experience next to Reach.


When I played Halo Reach MP, I had quite a blast despite it being it a console game.

Nothing like driving around the Warthog with a gunner.
