Halo 4

Halo 4 is the fourth game in the Master Chief Halo series, but is the seventh Halo game; confusing i know. You play as Master Chief, (Not to be confused with television show, Master Chef) who has woken up after four years of sleep, after the events which took place in Halo 3.

You awake to find yourself still in the same spaceship that you were in at the end of Halo 3, but things turn awry as Covenant rogues start to board! You must obviously survive the invasion, but you then become part of a bigger story. You find ancient alien technology, a new alien planet, and your AI partner, Cortana, starts to decay, and have rapid mood swings.

The gameplay is solid, everything works in Halo's unique way, from driving to shooting. You have multiple methods of controling the game, i personally opt for the classic Halo 3 controls, but that's just me; the controls are responsive, and every vehicle and turret controls well, and if you don't like it, it can always be changed!

Considering that the Xbox 360 is entering the end of its life span, and will soon be replaced by the XBoxOne (Which will crash and burn), the graphics hold up well for the age of the console, giving the player nice textures to look at, nice particle effects, and the alien environments feel as if they were actually built by aliens, instead of a team of game designers.

My only gripe is that sometimes the levels can be a bit too long, sometimes you will feel as though the game is being too far stretched out, which can make the gameplay a bit monotonous.

Overall, Halo 4 is a good game, and a must have for a Halo fan.
