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.
The multiplayer is awesome online. Now with the choice to have either the DMR, Carbine, Assault Rifle, Battle Rifle, Plasma Rifle, Pistol or Plasma Pistol is awesome! I rented this game and Black ops 2 to see which I liked better. Halo 4 is heads, shoulders, knees and toes above Black ops! Still able to create your own maps is always a plus to the creative types. The Campaign on Legendary is a great challenge by yourself but can breeze through with co-op. The only reason it is not a 10/10 is because I was upset with no boss fight at the end of the campaign like in previous Halo's. There are no Brutes in this Halo or Flood. But the story behind the game makes up for it. Great game! 9/10
