Release Dates Wrong!!

This game came out the 6th of November not the 5th, I remember vividly because it was one of the best days of my life! This games amazing and I spent all election day playing it!

It is truly amazing what 343 accomplished, making a game with incredible updated graphics, new modes and abilities and an overall fun and exciting halo that stands out, not some recycled overdone product.

All of this while working with a seven year old console is mind boggling, but 343 pushed the envelope and developed a stunningly beautiful and fluent game

Not only that, but with the type of budget microsoft spent, I am flabbergasted by how generous the creators are. A season pass half that of their competitors, free forge map (with the built in ability to make any other map you could imagine and update multiplayer with by adding variation) and halo waypoint which is loaded with hours of background videos an pictures while giving you updates and showing your personal statistics across every halo game for FREE

But it still dosent stop there! The game ships with two disc but after you download disc two you only need disc one to play for your convince. Along with spartan ops and spartan ops season two (by the way, ALSO free) you get a built in movie and hours of extra gamplay

Not to mention 343 takes great care of the game they update it constantly and listen to their fan base

Im not gonna lie, there are some chinks in halo 4's armor, like no UNSC flying vehicle, ranking system, armor and others, but their nothing that wont be fixed in the future when Halo 5 comes around on the xbox one which give 343 much more room to work with than an outdated 360

Finaly
Halo 4 was (and still is) a great game, but its main function was a bridge from the old trilogy to the new on the new console. If you get halo 4, your in good hands, but understand Halo 4 has served its purpose (extremely well I may add) and has done so in order to build the emphasis for halo 5 to come which will be

Seems to be a seamless transition from the original creators to its new designers. Everything about the game was spot on, and even more so. The one drawback that I get the sense of is that they might be phasing a lot of old school halo schematics/gameplay. Hopefully the new developers don't phase everything out such as the covenant.
