Halo 4 Review

Tyler Miller

A video game development company, 343 Industries, has taken over the Halo franchise from Bungie, another video game development company who is attributed with making the first three Halos, according to CNN.com. With the release of Halo 4 on November 6, 2012, 343 Industries created one of the best Halos yet.

Halo 4 picks up where Halo 3 left off. It continues following the story of Master Chief and his race to defeat the enemy, as he finds himself once again waking up from a long slumber still stranded in space. The character gets brought into a weird planet and is taught about the new details such as enemies, weapons, and allies. The gamer plays through a good, but confusing, campaign with new enemies and new characters. After beating the campaign, the user can play online or Spartan Ops.

Spartan Ops is a new feature created by 343 Industries in Halo 4 in which the gamercan play missions with friends or with strangers, according to Game Informer, a gaming magazine. “This is a great addition to the game and hopefully Spartan Ops will continue making these,” said Matt Greig, a sophomore at Hawthorne High School.

The online feature is also a big improvement both graphically and visually. It doesn’t have as many maps or as much armor, but it does allow the gamer to make his or her own classes, which is new as well.

I would give this game 9.5 out of 10. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes Halo or who is looking for a new type of game to play.
