Another great Halo game that didn't disappoint most users even with a different developer. There were minor changes but not enough to receive much negative reviews from one of the greatest game franchises of all time. Excellent storyline, great intense nonstop action, and amazing graphics.
You would imagine by now that Halo would start loosing steam as most games do even before this point in a franchise but Halo has something special. It seems the developers are not willing to let the Halo fans down yet. So lets go over each aspect of the game.
The campaign- While the campaign is short on this game it is enjoyable and I always play it first to get a feel for the new weapons and to understand the story as it had progressed. The new inclusion of weapons and enemies freshens up the gameplay from the same old humans vs. Covenant battle from the previous installments.
Co-op- As you can imagine this game becomes more fun when you play co-op with friends and even more so when you get into the Spartan Ops missions and discuss the game with friends while mowing down some Covenent and Prometheans.
Multiplayer- I am guilty of being burned out by this aspect of the game because I got addicted to it and ended up playing a month straight. Even though there are only so many maps at this time they will soon release more and the new inclusion of gametypes and custom maps makes this the crown jewel for Halo 4. The only complaint I have of it is that you can more times than I would like run into a "NAT" issue when you are trying to connect to a party that is already in a game.
Overall I give this game an 8 out of 10 score for excellent multiplayer and decent story for the campaign.
