For the halo veterans, how do you honestly feel about halo 4?

for my money, this is the best in the series. and it's up there with half life 2 as one of the best shooters i've ever played.

Campaign was fantastic. Multiplayer is meh, but I don't play halo for the multiplayer(weird, eh). Well I guess I did, but it was Halo CE over XBconnect haha.

Quick list of what I like:
-fluidity of gameplay
-Feel of the weapons

Don't like:
-Loadouts(I know power weapons are still on the map, but team coordinated power weapon control isn't emphasized anymore)

-Instant spawn- Rediculous imo, Waiting 7 seconds to restart is a method to punish you for doing bad. If the other team kills all of your teammates, they should have a small advantage of temporary map control.

-Point system instead of kills now. +5 for distraction? I don't think you should be rewarded simply shooting someone across the map.Team slayer should be measured in slays. No ifs, ands or buts.

-Perks....


Yea, you may see a trend in what I dislike, but I don't think every popular game should have homogeneous features. Back to tribes:ascend:D

Edit: I only played two mp matches, so my critiques may be completely null, but thats my perspective. I still love halo, and thats why I'm so critical.

I agree OP, I loved CE and 2, skipped 3 and Reach, but this one just doesn't feel good to me. I'm not sure why, but it's true

This game definitely has potential, 343 just has to listen to the fans and fix all of these problems. Better maps wouldn't hurt, there just aren't enough small maps that suit 4v4 games.

I've played This game since ce, and have loved it since. I have 5-6 k games in both h3 and reach. Played h2 online too before my box red ringed. But something about h4 I can't put my finger on. It doesn't feel like halo to me anymore, I wasn't the best at the game, but I am somewhat competitive but halo 4 feels foreign to me.

Do any veterans have the same problem ? How do u feel about h4? I can't get into this game at all, but with all the other ones I logged in countless hours of gameplay .


As a halo veteran that only plays singleplayer, I rank this as the second worse game.

I'll first off say that I haven't gone online since halo 2, I hate most multiplayer FPSes, though I agree with @donkey, tribes:ascend and the entire series were one of the few multiplayer FPSes I really got into that and C&C: Renegade.

The campaign doesn't really feel there though. Nothing special about it. the story is decent but with that said it was relatively generic. some great visuals but nothing really new. The new promethean weapons just feel like reskins of the other weapons. there were no good air battles beyond that one scene, something I missed from halo 3. Overall it just really wasn't there. Also has to be only halo(granted haven't played ODST yet) that I didn't feel the need to conserve ammo, there was just way too much of it on the ground and nearby.

It just wasn't very polished.

Needs more maps and removal of instant spawns, along with a few more popular game types.
