And it was completely honest. Plenty of other reviews score it VERY high, and those are people that look at a game as critique as possible.

I really did look at everything I disliked, and the few things I did, were irrelevant.

Thanks for the review; everything sounds on point. Though, like Z said, I'd feel better about it if anybody else wrote it lol. At least, somebody without a Halo avatar. I've played games all my life and I can think of like five 10/10 games lol.

I honestly hate the progression system and the weapon drops.
The AA's are basically just equipment and power-ups from H3 except they regenerate and you spawn with them. This is WAYYYY better than how Reach did it, but I still like weapons and equipment to be scattered around.

The main problem I have with H4 is the maps. When you take away the weapon spawns, there is NO incentive to go to a specific area. The flow is severely lacking.

The campaign is good from what I've played.

They nailed the movement. I don't like Sprint though. Why can't a Spartan run more than a metre before getting tired???
IMO, the Sprint speed should be the default speed.

It's good balance-wise, though some weapons (I'm looking at you Carbine and Boltshot) are kinda useless compared to things like the BR and Saw.

Vehicles are amazing.

Graphics aren't the best, but they are still beautiful. PUT HALO 4 ON PC!!!!!!!

The menus don't make my eyes bleed like in Reach.

WHY CANT WE FORGE ON MORE THAN THREE MAPS????????

Overall, this game will succeed for me only if the Custom Games community makes more Trash Compactor, Fat Kid, Jenga, and Omega Journey type maps. This was perhaps my biggest complaint about Reach.

My score: Scores don't matter.

You still want my score? You don't care you say?

Fine. Here it is out of spite.

I've never been a fan of the Halo series... Just not my kind of game, and I play nearly everything.. But I just have to know, what are these 5 10/10 games?

Well written review.

Ah yes, the good old days of shooting elites in their hinge-like faces. I do declare that this story line creates a little bit of friction with the book: glasslands. Which is supposed to run parallel to halo 4.

Are the prometheans forerunners? Cuz thats impossible.

Uh, I didn't have 5 in mind, I just know there aren't many lol. Off the top, I'd say Half-Life 2, TLOZ: Wind Waker, Shadow of the Colossus, Portal, Resident Evil 4, KOTOR 2, and MGS: Snake Eater are 10/10's.

I'm not saying Halo 4 shouldn't get it; I've never played it lol. It certainly had a larger budget than any of the above.

KOTOR 2 would have been a 10/10 if LucasArts would have let them finish the fucking game.

Funny, the endings (or lack thereof) are what made me exclude Fallout 3 and Skyrim from my list. They still deserve it, though. I'm currently playing Skyrim for the second time and plan to replay Fallout right after lol.

That would be a big spoiler to answer that question, so I'm not gonna say what they are.

But, it is quite interesting once you get that "Revelations" moment.

And for those complaining about the 10/10 review, I seriously did think of all the things I didn't like, on ever level.

For instance, BB's complaint about AA and the way power weapons work is nullified by the inclusion of a Slayer Pro playlist, which is basically Halo 3 in Halo 4. Plus, MLG will be coming out soon.

True.
I can definately see why you think it's 10/10 though.

So I just tried out Forge...
WHAT THE FROGFLIP???

How the hell can you do ANYTHING with those tiny three maps???

This is bad news. The main draw of Halo to me is custom games. Without good maps, Halo 4 will die sooner than it should for me.

In Halo 3, people made awesome maps. Forge World is NOT required to make good maps.

Also, you can forge on every map......I don't see why you think its restricted to those three. And their pretty big actually, though I personally don't see why the didn't just re-do Forge World. Hopefully the DLC will have something. But, regardless, few people used much more space than most of the maps sizes are anyways in their maps.

-The maps vary from ok to just sucky in my opinion.

-The... saw... is... simply... amazing.

-Flood a.k.a. zombies has improved alot

-The sniper is OP in my opinion now. I mean I suck at sniper and I am no scoping like there ain't no tomorrow. Though I believe somebody said 343 plans to fix this in an update, so this shouldn't be a biggie.

This is what I have noticed in the 3-4 hours of playing halo. As of now, I don't think it deserves a 10/10, maybe closer to a 9. Though I'm not the best person to rate video games since I only probably only ever get 2-3 new games a year.

I don't mean Forgeworld. I mean maps like Sandbox and Foundry. I don't want pre-built structures cutting off my map.
Halo 3's forge sucked at launch as well. Hopefully DLC will fix it.

The main problem with Forge World is that it had no variety.
Also, you can't put structure pieces on any other maps than the three.

There aren't any on the space one I believe, and there is plenty of room on the other two. Though, I think they should have just made variants of Forge World, or expanded it, like a snow place, desert, grass, ect.

I like the variety in the main maps, but Forge World was still better IMO.

Mainly because not many others are big enough, and because the ones that are already have structures.

I like the story more than the game. In my opinion, if you want a shooting game, go get one of the other millions, but If you're looking one with a story, then Halo is the bomb.

My question: The lifegiver put thousands of the old humans into prometheans and left them, but why didn't the forerunners come back to them for help during the forerunner flood war? The forerunners instead went to the cities of the artificially diminished humans and got down on their knees to beg for help, but why didn't they question the Prometheans? They knew they existed didn't they? The prometheans still had their human consciousnesses from before the war, yet the forerunners looked towards the de-evolved humans????????????

Well, they made the Prometheans specifically for the Flood-Forerunner war, but Didact used humanity, the stone-age humanity the Forerunners reduced us to, to create them.

The forerunners instead went to the cities of the artificially diminished humans and got down on their knees to beg for help, but why didn't they question the Prometheans? They knew they existed didn't they?

I'm not sure what they did with the advanced humans.

The Promethean-Humans were stone age humanity, not advanced.
