Let me put it to you like this.,
This review is from: Halo 4 Limited Edition -Xbox 360 (Video Game)
This games multiplayer is like Halo Reach made love to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and the offspring was Halo 4. Don't expect to turn this game on and be playing either though. To me, it reminded me of the Halo 3 and Halo Reach gameplay, with the realism of Call of Duty. In all fairness, I believe the graphics are crispier than Halo Reach and the gameplay is much smoother!
The Campaign was a blast only for the fact that it was different than any other campaign in the Halo Series. My only 2 issue with the campaign is that the music is not.... Halo. I used to get chills when I heard the old Halo music. It would add amazing anticipation to the game and was a huge part of Halo. Also, the new enemies called the "Prometheans" weapons are awfully unoriginal. They are extremely similar to all the other weapons in the game except for the fact that they shoot energy bullets.
One thing that had me absolutely stunned is the graphics. The detail in all the characters cut scenes are absolutely stunning and I honestly could not tell if it was a game or a real video recording! Halo 4 honestly has the best cutscene graphics I have every seen in my past 11 years of gaming!
I have to give it to 343 studios... They didn't quite live up to Bungie's standard but I this is just a small step. They have a lot of potential and could potentially make the Halo series huge again.
*I will add to the review once I have played the game more. Thanks for reading.
