Is Halo 4 worth $40 or no?

Now then, of course i'm expecting the trolls to leave their bridge to hunt for food. But to the others...

Is Halo 4 worth $40? Or would a older Halo game like Reach be better? I see there is some sort of argument on this board about server population. But to my own knowledge there are plenty of players.

Something about there not being a ranking system was also mentioned, confused about that. My point is when i rented the single player, and clicked Infinity (MP). The intro & loadout screen made me want to play online badly. I'm just not sure if it's worth it.

Other than cortanna's rear end, what are the good things about the game. And what are the bad.

Maybe...

It's really not a good idea to pick up an older Halo (since the server population is so low on them), so if you really want a Halo game, H4 is the way to go. I got the game for 40 during a sale right before Christmas, and I still play it regularly, so yeah, it's probably worth 40. The pros and cons of the game are as follows:

PROS
-The maps (for the most part)
-Playlists (they've improved a lot)
-Commendation system
-The Forge mode
-Customization (armor, loadouts, etc.)
-Weapon variety

CONS

-Poorly integrated ordnance system
-Loadouts can be exploited for an advantage
-Ridiculous hit detection (the DMR never misses a shot)
-Infinity Slayer sucks
-No visible competitive skill rank
-Custom game options are limited

That's all I can think of. There's probably more cons that I've forgotten.

H4>>>Reach.

And yes, it is. Despite a lot of flaws, this is a good game. You get a lot of bang for your buck when you add in SpOps.

I got it for 40$ when it was on special on the dashboard.

Don't regret it, the game is really great - none of the connection issues BO2 has (but there is some lag time to time...)

It's worth $60 still. It's probably the best Halo to date, but it'll get hate because that's just how people are now. They hate on everything for the sake of doing it.

Yes H4 is worth it. The game still has issues, but it has been getting a lot better since the start of the year.

Lawlz to it being the best Halo to date.

It's a runner for worst Halo of all time, but it's still worth the play. Just don't expect to get the HCE-H2 (and to a much lesser extent) H3 enjoyment out of it.
