Just thought i’d drop by and throw in my 2 pennies…
Having played all but ODST in the Halo series, I consider myself a pretty loyal fan of the games. That said, I can honestly say this release was probably the one I was most excited about. I’d watched trailers, any and all gameplay snippets etc since June in the hope i’d gain a little understanding in terms of what to expect from Halo 4 and 343i. The youtube ‘Forward Unto Dawn’ series was cool, the buildup has been exiting, and now Halo 4 is finally here!
I would spend 20 minutes venting my frustration at the ranking system, but I trust 343 will stick to their word and bring in a competitive ranking system that can go both up and down as with previous releases…
In a nutshell, I’m hugely impressed.
The game looks and feels absolutely incredible. The audio is remarkable. The Campaign is fantastic. The Pro Multiplayer gametype is genuinely fun again. The Spartan Ops mode is entertaining too.
Am I the only one that isn’t feeling the gametypes aside of Pro Slayer? No-one else miss Double Team?
Don’t get me wrong, I do feel everything that really matters has been improved since Halo: Reach, and this game is a massive advancement on its predecessor (especially once the Competitive Ranking System drops). I just think Double Team, 3v3, multi-team etc were loads of fun and brought different dimensions to the multiplayer side of Halo.
What does anyone else think?
