Hello fellow Halo community, I want to hear from the majority of you what you think is good about Halo 4.
Now I know, yea, it’s not perfect, and there are things to still be desired, but I want to hear your opinion on the positives. Plus I’m trying to get my friend to pick it up, due to the lack of games we have to play with our friends, so I want him to see the game for it’s good, not it’s bad.
Here’s his argument:
"The story is complete -Yoink-. It involves an enemy that isn’t clearly defined, not even the novels helped and it involves a splinter section that is the Covenant from lazy writing all because Elites > Brutes in terms of enemies. Laziness!
The plot is the Master Chief, big surprise, because 343i is too afraid to branch out and actually explore the Halo Universe that Bungie sent them. A vast universe to play with and 343i decides to rewrite it and play it safe.
As for the multiplayer, I feel that even though Halo 4 branched out a bit…they’re still sticking to the same formula. Where Halo: CE set the bar THEN, CoD:MW set the bar for NOW! That’s the direction Halo needs to go, which they’re trying to and constantly shying away from.
I love CoD multiplayer over Halo. Because it’s better in terms of weapon mechanics, where your aiming and not fighting the headshot auto lock. If CoD would work on their bullet lag and hit box detection more, it’d be perfect.
I’ll always tell you that Halo needs to change their multiplayer formula. Assassinations were nice and that mech is pretty cool, but give me awesome perks and equipment with weapons that’ll give me a chance to create a loadout for a specific situation. I need a Recon guy to go in and out fast and undetected, I need a Sniper, Heavy Weapons, Solider, etc. I need gameplay like that so I know if my strategy isn’t working, I can change it up and try a different tactic.
I’m not buying a game to play half of the content on the disc. If that were the case then 343i should just make a separate disc for Spartan Ops and Multiplayer. But they won’t because they want to force feed people the campaign -Yoink- so you read the books and still say, ‘WTF?’"
Go ahead guys, pick at it. Let’s see if you can crack this shell. Also if there is anything in terms of cursing from this, I just straight up quoted him, and I’ll edit it if need be.
