Played the multiplayer at a friend's earlier. It's good, but I'm terrible.

Too bad, I bought it.

I'm not a Halo guy but I've played all and this is by far the best one I've ever played. I'm most amazed by the sounds, everything is alive around especially when you play with surround sound.

I have yet to play online but I'm sure it'll exceed all expectations.

One of the best games this year.

I found there was a lot more vehicle driving in this game, which was very fun.

Is Halo 4 the start of a new trilogy?!

Absolutely ridiculous how good this game is. Hopefully it sustains the fun like Halo3 did.

this game is so fun, might be my favorite Halo

Just beat the sixth level. So far so good, however I will admit I am a little confused about the plot in relation to Forerunners/humans and the Dialect, and why the covenant are again against us.


Do you mean the Didact? that guy's rad

Literally I can say it's just the beginning. I've never played a story mode as intense and mind blowing.
I would say if your going to buy a 360 and only get this game, it's still worth it.
You won't be disappointed.

I am a little confused with the setting.

Halo 3 ended with the Elites and humans/Spartans having an allegiance, then in the Webisodes (which prequel Halo 4), none of the cadets know what the Covenant/Elites/Spartans are?

Did they give any reason why the Elites/Convenant attack humanity again?

Okay, I said I wasn't going to buy it, but now I totally am. Quite frankly, it doesn't take your stereotypical young-teenage (screw ageism, btw) XBL kid to enjoy this game. It never has in the Halo series, contrary to popular belief, but this game is actually just really good for a core-geared FPS. Great audio (play it with a headset, it sounds amazing), smooth storytelling, challenging gameplay (I'm alright and "Normal" pushes me sometimes), 10/10 visuals as is custom with the newer games in the series, ect., ect..

I'm quite impressed.

If by webisodes, you mean the "Forward Unto Dawn" series, then you're off about the timeline. FUD takes place in the year 2526. Halo 1, 2, and 3 take place from 2552-2553.

That would explain why Lasky is all growed up in Halo 4.

So the webisodes pre-date Halo: Reach, then followed by Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4?!

I didn't think consoles were capable of displaying this quality of graphics.

This game is absolutely mindblowing, and highly addictive.

I find myself never using more than one loadout though (BR, Bolt shot for close range goodness, and promethean vision)

Are there any other armour abilities worth a shot?

I have been dabbling with autosentry and hand light shield, although I would say Promethean vision is my favorite so far...

I use DMR/Magnum/Plasma grenades/Promethean

The game runs pretty well for the most part. On campaign mission 5 (Reclaimer), for about 10 seconds I dropped to like 3fps or something, but it was out of combat and I'm pretty sure it was just loading a ton of stuff for the next part of the level.

I love how it looks like you're inside the helmet, I love immersion in video games like that and being able to look down and see your own feet!

Covenant Carbine
Magnum
Plasma
Light shield
Shielding
Faster reload

Love the Carbine, and the light shield is excellent for roping in enemies in tight and then just sticky them. It's also the only real defence against vehicles.

Question: I've been doing the campaign on a different memory source than the multiplayer, primarily because the multiplayer extraction was so massive, will my campaign accomplishments count in the multiplayer menu?
