5 stars "An instant classic"

Despite previous misgivings at being the first game in the franchise without the involvement of Bungie, 343 Studios has produced an extremely polished title. Though when taken separately the graphics and plot are merely good the combined whole is excellent in a way few games manage. Multiplayer in particular, which is a large draw for the series, has certainly had a lot of thought put into it using feedback from players. Though the rewards associated with progression aren't as extensive as previous outings, the map voting system is better than the previous veto system and use of Ordanance allows less skilled players more enjoyment by bypassing the monopoly of more skilled players on power weapons.

4 stars "Not as good as the original trilogy.... Meh"

When I first finished halo 3 I was taken back when I watched after the end credits to find a cinematic. The very cinematic which contained hints of a sequel to the trilogy and so I waited...... After years of completely forgetting about halo 4 it was released \(“_”)/. The game was more graphically pleasing than the trilogy, but however I found the campaign was to short. And at some points the hadnt even animated sequences thouroughly (eg phantom exploding) I think halo 4 was made to be more multiplayer rather than single player oriented you even had to install the multiplayer from a disk or download to even play it rather than just playing off the disk. I dont know it was good I guess meh...........

2 stars "Not as good as it could have been."

I am a big fan of the halo fiction and the universe it takes place in, I am also a massive fan of the games. However halo 4 is not the same to me, personally that is.

I bought the limited edition, hoping for some decent content, maybe up to standard to what halo reach included, however I was a little disappointed when I opened it up. Though I was happy that I got the first three DLC map packs.

I enjoyed the campaign, it felt like halo, and I enjoyed the campaign a heck of a lot, the new enemies were really good, the ending was also really good. Last few levels were so much fun to play. I also loved the new weapons in the campaign. So much fun to play with.

Then there is the multiplayer modes. There are less modes than in previous games, they removed Race, Territories, Juggernaut, Headhunter, Stockpile, Invasion and a couple of others, but they added in Regicide, Dominion, extraction and more recently another mode similar to grifball. At the start it was fun because everyone had the same stuff, yea the level progression was kinda cool, though as time went on and people leveled up quicker and got other weapons for their starting loadouts it felt a little less balanced. Some guns were nerfed early on, mainly the boltshot (pistol with a shotgun secondary fire). The way weapons spawned on the map didnt feel like halo, in old games every weapon on a map would spawn in specific loactions so to get those weapons you needed to control the map, in halo 4 the weapons could change each time they spawn, and to get a weapon or power up you can get x number of points and you can get a weapon drop of one of 3 options, usually a power weapon or something similar. This makes the game feel less like a game where you want to control the map, and more like something else. The loudouts also change the game completely. In old games you knew what each person would spawn with, maybe a different armour ability if you played reach, but it would be fair, however with everyone picking and choosing you never know what will happen, and some of the support packages etc. Allow for two primary weapons when you spawn, or more ammo. It doesn't quite feel the same as it did. I loved the game when I first got it, however over time the multiplayer doesn't draw me in like it used to.

Then we have Spartan Ops. This could have been a great thing, however most of the missions in it are on the same ten maps for the first half, then they have another ten for the second half, and some of these have been taken from the multiplayer. The story was decent, however it was not as fun as the Firefight mode it replaced, where you could customise it as much as you like, including skulls, and enemy behaviour. In Spartan Ops you must also be an xbox live gold member to play it at all. This is a pain as myself and a friend who just plays games at my place were playing through and his gold ran out so we could not continue on his account. This in my opinion was a terrible idea as it is part of the core game, and thus should be a feature you can play offline once the episode came out. Firefight did not have this annoying thing and was able to be played offline.

Overall I enjoyed the campaign of the game, however it does not have the lasting appeal of earlier installations. Stats also show this. As when the game came out it had over 300k players a day, right now it is lucky to get over 20k per day.

Overall unless you want the story I personally wouldn't recommend this, and if you want the story I would say rent it, play through the campaign, and just watch the spartan ops episodes, the majority of the SO missions are the same.
