I bookmarked this for later reading (tired right now...), but at first glance it looks unsurprisingly like another top-notch review, DM. :]

p.s. Congrats on getting to the finals. :D

@Xanni15: Haha no worries, if you get the chance then it's much appreciated :)

And pfft, definitely didn't deserve to make it that far.

@Deranged Midget: Another awesome review DM. Glad to see 343 are honouring the franchise and taking it in a new direction. This has made me want to get Halo 4 even more now!

Posted by Deranged Midget

@Lvenger: Haha, I'm glad you found the review helpful. Although I don't know about it being great... :P

I am a PS3 gamer, to bad Halo is Xbox exclusive, I probably would've gotten all the Halo games if I had one...

I want this game even more now...

Posted by Deranged Midget

@BlueLantern1995: It's too bad you can't experience it. Truly a jewel. Thanks for reading though!

@guttridgeb: Appreciate the read. Let me know what you think of the game!

@Deranged Midget: Might be a while before I can, I already had to trade in a load of games to afford AC3, I'm beginning to regret that now :)

Posted by Deranged Midget

@guttridgeb: That's fine, whenever you get the chance to play, give me a shout!

I loved Reach, but this is even better.

@slacker the hacker: 343 should be commended for the story they dished out.

It's a fantastic game. I liked Reach, but not as much as Halo 3.

Your review is simply fantastic, your best one to date perhaps. I can see you truly enjoyed the game, got into, and wanted to write this review, which applies to all of your reviews but this one more so. I've said once, and I'll say it again, your reviews could be in a video game magazine, they're that professional. It was perfectly written. I don't know how you do it but keep up the amazing work. :]

@Xanni15: You and your compliments mate... :P

Yes indeed

@Deranged Midget: I am completely serious, I know you're going into a different field bu tit's worth checking into as say a side job to earn money. I used to get a few of them and I can tell you that your reviews are better.

Posted by Deranged Midget

@Xanni15: Well thanks Xanni, I'm flattered that you'd think my reviews were any good.

Posted by Xanni15

@Deranged Midget: Is that sarcastic? :P

If not, I'm not the only one. Your reviews are very popular, you just made it to the finals in the battle tournament so you've got that going for you, and you're a mod so obviously others higher up thought a lot of you. :]

Posted by Deranged Midget

@Xanni15: Sarcasm? No, of course not sir. Again, thank you for the kind words.

I never buy Halo, but I liked the review. I especially agree with the graphics section.

Posted by Deranged Midget

@Pyrogram: Thanks mate.

In spite of me finding her annoying during some of the earlier stages (her tone just rubbed me the wrong way), I agree with this sentence 200%:

It's a sad tale which walks the line of questioning who really is the machine and who is real.

Fantastic review and I agree with just about everything stated. I haven't been this captivated by a Halo game since Combat Evolved.

@k4tzm4n: Thanks for the read dude! :D

And as evident from my review, I thought the best and biggest improvement that 343 brought with Halo 4 was the vastly improved focus on the story and the central characters. It was captivating and simply brilliant, far exceeding anything Bungie has done in the past with the lore.

Well, talk about a random bump.

@deranged_midget: Bump.

2 years later, do you feel the same about Halo 4?

Haha, my images are all messed up :'(

After just replaying the game through the Master Chief Collection, I can say that the experience is so worthwhile if only for the campaign. It's a tad on the short side, but the way 343 humanized Chief this time around and gave Cortana such a deep story arc, I can't help but be ecstatic for what they have in store. The multiplayer, while still fun, isn't on the same level as Halo 2 or 3, but it's top tier for sure and I had a blast with it.

Edited by Frozen

@deranged_midget: Yeah, I was questioning the images. Lol.

I agree that the human aspect to Chief is much stronger in Halo 4. I think, that Chief's character is the most developed upon in Halo 4 so that personal connection is there. IMO, much better than Halo Reach's storyline.

Though, I do feel the multiplayer needs improvement because the tactics in Halo 2/3 are largely gone. Still, Halo 5 looks great.
