If taking control of a sci-fi super soldier who is solely responsible for saving all our backsides from an ancient threat is your cup of tea then this is THE GAME for you.
Big explosions? – check!
Lots of loud guns? – check!
Challenging enemy AI? – check!
Great graphics? – check!
Great music? – check!
Lots of pre-pubescent kids handing you your backside every time you player Slayer? – check, check, check!
Really, what more do you want from a Halo title?
Story? What do you mean you want a story? Why? Feel like crying a bit during the end of the game? Well good news folks, as Halo 4 actually contains a well defined story (although contrived but really, it’s a FPS for flibble’s sake) and even this hardened gamer had a tear in his eye (actually it was a piece of dirt and I’m sticking with that).
Halo’s first post-Bungie affair is a wonderful and thrilling time, 343 Industries have created the perfect swansong for the ageing Xbox 360… perhaps one year too early?
