10/10 from Destructoid: "Not only has 343 far surpassed any expectations of what a Halo title should be, they've also gone and created a Halo game that is miles above any that's come before it."

9.8 from IGN: "After soaking in the new game, I am beyond thrilled to be so in love with Halo again, more than I’ve been since Halo 2. Halo 4 is a masterstroke."

4.5/5 from G4: "Master Chief's return is most certainly a triumphant one and there are some new flavors to be found here and there, but overall, Halo 4 is just about the safest approach to a sequel imaginable. Like most annualized franchises that embrace iteration over evolution, this is definitely one for the fans."

kotaku: "Fighting the Prometheans grows stale"

A- from 1up: "343i has done a great job of capturing the essence of Halo, tapping into the kind of options that FPS fans love. Even if some parts don't fit perfectly in this debut title, the final package presents a game that's well-made, carefully crafted, and visually striking."

5 from Joystiq: "one of the best games in the series and one of the finest shooters in years. "

4/5 from Giant Bomb: "I felt like much of the promise inherit to this potentially new setting had been squandered. Maybe that's on me for wanting Halo to be something other than Halo"

9/10 from Gamespot: "Halo 4 is every bit the massive shooter package that its predecessors were, and it holds the series' standard high. "

8/10 from Eurogamer: "Halo 4 is authentic, and assures 343's role is more than a mere tribute act. Their delicate yet sprawling work may be more continuation than true expansion - and perhaps the true test comes in the next step - but for now, Halo returns with a bang, not a whimper."

9.25 from Game Informer: "Halo 4 makes the series feel new again. 343 Industries’ clear affection for the property shines through, leaving me thrilled to join Master Chief for another decade in defense of the galaxy."

Penny Arcade: "This isn’t Bungie’s Halo anymore – it’s better"

8/10 from CVG: " It's spectacular, it fights like Halo should, and it throws another hundred brilliant shootouts your way. But it's not a good Halo. There are too few options, too little to make the new weapons tactically interesting and the engine is reaching further than the hardware ever wanted to go. 343 did the best job anyone could have done with those graphics on this generation of hardware but given the choice between pretty or huge, Halo should always be the biggest game in the world."

8/10 from Escapist: "While 343i shouldn't just try to make a Bungie game, the single player isn't up to the series' standard."

8/10 from Edge: "Halo 4 isn’t a reinvention so much as a recalibration, a common-sense repair to a drifting narrative, with a hero who is now back in play and back at his best. Halo 4’s biggest victory is that it gives us Master Chief back."

Gamersyde: "Developer 343 Industries has indeed managed to best all the Halo games released so far"

let me give you some advise.

read only the computer and videogame review ( CVG). it is the only one that make sence. they gave the game a 8.

eurogamer gave the game also an 8, but they explain very little.

IGN review is probably written by someone from a asylum. that poor guy totally lost it :)

It's the best written review of them all, what are you talking about?

Edge and CVG have said -- and this is the only real criticism in any of these reviews that I care about -- that the large scale battles of previous Halos are gone, and it's narrow and more confined battles this time. Bummer.

GTA 4 was awesome.

And what do you mean "pointing out good reviews"? I posted all the reviews from the major, creditable sources. I'm sorry there aren't any bad ones.

Reach was good IMO. I was legit bummed every time a team member died . And the last stand at the end made for a good ending. Phone Post
