I just got to the 'reclaimer' mission, so far I'm confuggled as to why this game was reviewed so spectacularly. I kept hearing that the graphics were ''the best on consoles,'' but really, no. Textures are bland, and at times look horrible up close, while the lighting is just ... ok. There are times, and certain scenes that look really good, with a lot of shiny, broad, indiscernible, generic shapes and objects filling the screen.

The story is just turrible.

The Promethians are pretty cool, reminding me fondly Halloween, with a nifty digitization effect when you kill them, but instead of their ghost rider tribute look, I would have preferred if they went full on Nic Cage instead.

I'm hoping that there isn't too much more, it's just not very compelling.

Your entitled to your opinion of course, regardless of how turrible it is, but this:

"Textures are bland, and at times look horrible up close, while the lighting is just ... ok."

is demonstrably false.

Don't feel too bad, we all can't have good taste in video games.

It's really generic, if that's 'taste,' have to it. I'll keep eating digital mud.

"The story is just turrible."

While this is also due to personal taste, you can almost argue this is false as well. The story in Halo 4 is better than anything Bungie did. Unless you liked your Little Shop of Horrors in Halo...

Can't stop laughing at this. First time hearing the line applied to a person, and you nailed it.

Trolling attempt = 2/10

Charles Barkley doesn't joke around when he trolls, so don't use "turrible". It makes your troll attempt less adequate and not serious.

Who doesn't love Little Shop of Horrors?

Considering this guy changes his name every few months and has been a troll on here for what seems like ages you'd think he'd have a better grasp on the whole process.

This too, it's just turrrible.

Not being enthralled with Halo 4 definitely equals trolling.

You silly kids these days.

If you are not trolling then why not post your thoughts in the Halo 4 impressions thread?

Best Halo story, surpassing anything Bungie did.

Not overrated, according to Metacritic, underrated is more like it.

Not the opinion itself but your ridiculous reasons behind it.
