343's playing it safe...

Since the announcement I was exited but skeptical about Halo 4. It suffers from "It sounded to good to be true" syndrome I like to call most games now. The campaign went off to a good start and then it ended. To quick if you ask me. I hate to say this but the game needed to have filler. One thing that got me irritated was how a pelican started floating down to pick up the chief. It fades, and then your in a new area. What the h311 was that?! I yelled. It bothers me because they could've used that scene so much better! Like showing how big the UNSC Infinity actually is. Seeing how big the battle between 2 enemies actually was like. But no, it fades. Besides that the campaign is short. Impressive the amount of stuff that went into it. I'll drop the fact that it is short because Frank O'Connor said it himself that they will do better next time. The story doesn't take risks and stays safe to the formula while adding new things to it. I will quickly say that the multiplayer is the most balanced I've ever seen. They could not go any higher then this. I will move on to spartan ops, the replacement for firefight. Spartan Ops was like another campaign but coop focused. The main problem with this is that some maps repeat. Spartan ops to me is just a tack on. You are just better off looking at the pre rendered cutscenes online, because no story moments take place here (For the most part). Aside from spartan ops being a side activity, I'm expecting better next time 343.

Halo 4: another huge disappointment

only 4 hours of total game play (granted the story was a good end(?)). DLC adds another 8 hours except that Spartan Ops are merely "kill everyone on the map and push a button".

So I picked up the story from Halo 3 and have played all ever since. I love the story line and this has to be my favorite game so far. A few changes that they have made is the sound effects. They are more realistic and I like these better. We also have some new guns in these. All the ones in the previous games are still in these. The also upgraded on the graphics and they changed the Grunts to me a little bit. I kind of like the old ones better but it is not a huge complaint. I highly recommend this game but play Halo Anniversary and Halo 3 than this game!
