Regaurdless of your opinion of IGN.com and it's rating system two months later, do you feel Halo 4 deserved to become the highest rated FPS on Xbox 360?

When IGN gave Halo 4 a 9.8 it made the game the highest rated FPS game since Halo 2. Perfect Dark, Metroid Prime, and Halo 2 are the only FPS games to get scored this high on IGN.

Halo 4 didn't impress me the way Halo 3 and eventually Halo: Reach did. Halo 3 felt like the pinnacle of the series and Halo: Reach felt like a refinement of everything that had come before it. If you wanted to experience all Halo had to offer then play Halo: Reach. If you wanted the best of what it had to offer, Play Halo 3.

Halo 4 just didn't feel like the 9.8 that got me so excited. All the dramatic story elements and beautiful cut-scenes in the world can't make up for missing game features.

Your thoughts...

Should you care about an opinion/review someone made about the game?

I don't, I just play games I'm hyped up for and judge them, from there I decide if I like it or not.

They haven't even fixed something as basic as File Share.

Hell no it doesn't deserve a 9.8.

Well someone will care. I have plenty of reason to take everything IGN says with a grain of salt.
In hind sight, Perfect Dark, Metroid Prime, and Halo 2 probably deserved such a high rating. Halo 4, It feels more like a 9.5.

I'm bored too buddy. That is why I made such a topic. Maybe that was the point of your post.

Halo 3 and Reach had me playing off and on well into the fallowing spring season before taking a long break. After Spartan Ops is over I won't have a reason to keep playing. There is no awesome armor that will keep me cheevo hunting and being content with the armor I have I think this game will have dropped to the lower 9.0's by the time the Halo 2 Remake or Halo 5 come along.

Halo 4 will always be the game that (hopefully) will be infamous for being to ambitious for it's own good. I think if it had come out on the Xbox 720 all the features it's missing would be present and fleshed out beyond expectation.

Right now, I'm seeing 9.5. After the updates and more maps(forged) and a FFA then yes it deserves a 10.
Pray the day for another Jet Set Radio game, "Boondocks" season 4, and people to learn about good rappers EX: MFDOOM, Elzhi, Gangstarr, Substantial.

How can metacritic score differ SO MUCH from the view of the gamer?
This unethical review business has been around for a while, but it's only recently it seems to have been perfected.

Metacritic has a bunch of trolls and A-Holes, though. Just look at some of the comments about those ranking. One guy said, "1.0 because it does not have Call of Duty in the title."

Really? Who takes that seriously?
Everyone said it a was a miracle when Jesus hit that grand slam in the bottom of the 9th. I just thought it was a lucky shot.
