I like how people consider Halo 4 as terrible. If Halo 4 is one of the worst games you've played, that is a good thing. Don't get me wrong, its the worst Halo game, but it is still a good game. Not great. But good.
No, it is not a good thing. Anytime you spend 60+ dollars on a video game and it it terrible, that is not a good investment. Especially when you want to sell the game and the video game community knows its not even worth the price of a couple very good hamburgers. Its price depreciated in value over 2/3 it's original value before it was even 8 months old.
Halo 4 is GARBAGE. Compared to Halo 2 and Halo 3, it is garbage. That is all. Forge is the best part of the game by far.
Halo 4 is the most graphically pleasing Halo game so far. The menu could do with some work, as could the SPARTAN avatars in the menu, but the in game SPARTAN models look amazing. Seriously, enter Theater and have a close up look. The colours are so much better than the standard Red/Blue and the textures look crisp.
