4.0 out of 5 stars Covers Campaing and Multiplayer, May 9, 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo 4 - Xbox 360 (Standard Game) (Video Game)
Campaign:
-Story was Great but the Campaign should have really explained the Halo universe more. I read all the books, and am familiar with the Halo canon so this was not a problem for me, but I could see how it would be very difficult for people to understand it without that knowledge, even having played all the games. Also, the terminal videos should be included as part of the campaign, not as extras because they explain a lot. The look of the game is simply beautifuly. It really mimics that feeling of wonder and exploration that was present in Halo: Combat Evolved. The enemies in campaign are unique and diverse, so fighting them always requires a strategy and not just spraying. The cutscenes are unreallisticly realistic... They are simply amazing. Some of my friends thought they had used live-action, which is not true by the way, it is all CGI.

Multiplayer:
Multiplayer is the part where this game really stands out. From a competitive view, it is not too great, because of the random oridnace, but from just a "fun" point of view, it is AWESOME! The randomness is actually fun, and provides a nice change of pace. The maps are all great, especially Ragnarok, the remake of Vallhalla. It is much faster paced by the way, but don't worry, it's still Halo.

Spartan Ops:
Dare I say it, but the story of Spartan Ops is actually better than the actual part where you play. I believe the story is actually better than campaign. It is very similar to Red Vs. Blue if you are familiaer with that. They have also been great about keeping up with releasing weekly content, and so far it's been great. Season 1 is over, and Season 2 is confirmed.

Forge:
With the recent addition of the new map Forge Island, which in 100% free by the way, Forge in Halo 4 is definatley something something unlike any forge before it. Definately would reccomend.

This game is really great everywhere, except campaign needs improvement. I would definately reccomend getting this game.
