I own this game and I must say it does have its Pros and its COns.
Pros: This game is amazing with the enhanced detail, sound, knew enemies, and storyline. Although you are not on another Halo ring, the you still get pretty into the storyline. The online is also pretty fun and the spartan ops is great to play with your friends. The Forge is faster and better than ever too. With the magnets feature you can lock walls, doors etc. way easier and they added a couple knew scenery features and others (like turrents that work on there own.)
COns: These still bug me to this day and I have had Halo 4 for a while now. First of all, the ending to Halo 4, I won't actually tell you it, is a little confusing and that kind of dissappointed me. Second, the custom games are kind of a drag. The "infection" gametype, now called flood, can't be changed around a whole lot like in Halo 3 / Halo Reach (Which sucks for me because when I played Halo 3 / Halo Reach, thats all I did was make infection maps and play infection and I had a blast but now...). You will have to try out the other gametypes to try to make the game work.
The campaign drags on pretty badly. I thought that bring bag chief wasn't really necessary, i honestly thought the story was better before they brought in this new chapter of master chief. i only defeated the campaign for the gamer score, i would not play it for the fun of the campaign.
Although i disliked the campaign, the war games is fantastic! The matchmaking is great, and the way the weapons fire is awesome. i love that they have the option to sprint, plus have another armor ability. the loadout system makes the game awesome, i love having the freedom of using the gun you want at all times. Where in past games you would have to vote for a certain game type to choose the gun you wanted to use. Overall i would give the multiplayer a huge thumbs up.
Spartan ops is a very fun addition to halo 4. I love that instead of just shooting people in firefight, you now have a version of firefight with an objective, and a vague story behind it. I would only ask them to change two things. i wish that spartan ops could be played off of Xbox live, and i wish that you could tweak the settings of the game like you could on firefight.
