Halo 4: Red vs Blue: Remember to Not Forget Trailer
The game takes the series in an innovative new direction, and re-introduces the previous Spartan super soldier protagonist Master Chief (John-117) as Halo 4’s hero, along with his AI companion Cortana. We re-encounter the pair adrift on the wreckage of the UNSC frigate Forward Unto Dawn, near an unexplored Forerunner planet they will soon know as Requiem that plays home to deadly secrets. Halo 4 continues on from the aftermath of Halo 3, four years after the pair helped humanity achieve victory against the Covenant, after thirty years of seemingly never-ending warfare, but at a cost. Halo 4 dictates the results of how its prequel’s events unfolded, and allows for the conclusion of a 100,000 year story to take shape.
Halo 4 offers an immersive experience, with graphically and visually stunning environments just begging you to explore them, with the game’s graphic engine allowing for more detail and better lighting effects, showing improvements everywhere you look. Halo has also evolved in order to expand in both scope and scale, allowing for more discovery and mystery to be uncovered and found. Forerunner elements play a crucial part within the game, with humanity and the USNC finding their bearings and attempting to adjust to the galaxy now that they are no longer at war with the Covenant, and incorporating Forerunner technology into their new lifestyles.
The game also offers a wide range of artillery and armour, for example the next generation of Mjolnir Powered Assault Armour, GEN2. This high tech armour boasts technological and ad hoc modification systems, which alongside Armour Abilities, allows Tactical Packages and Support Upgrades, amongst various other enhancements. These enhancements permit you to improve, tailor, and personalise your actions and combat, and also guarantee that you are the most reinforced, and the most deadly out there in the field.
Halo Infinity Multiplayer has the incredible starship the UNSC Infinity as the hub for all of Halo 4’s innovative multiplayer challenges, where you can start and progress your very own custom Spartan-IV super soldier’s career. The campaign continues online, with the game modes War Games, which is competitive multiplayer battles that incorporate varied maps and modes, and Spartan Ops, which gives you weekly co-operative episodes from the Spartan Ops briefing room, which will give you five brand new co-operative missions. The multiplayer modes and campaign mode are linked, meaning that your progress and game choices will affect your appearance, arsenal, and role on the battlefield.
Experience Halo as you’ve never seen it before, as the franchise takes on a new direction with the beginning of the Reclaimer Trilogy, guaranteeing to give you the most evolved Halo gameplay to date. (Cat Emerson)

So this is IT - Halo 4. I just completed the singleplayer campaign, this game has a very exciting and emotional story, that's why Halo is much bigger (in my opinion) than CoD, BF and the rest of these 08/15 shooter games. The graphics may be the best you will ever see on XBox 360. I mean for real, is this console really 7 years old already? You will not believe that once you've tasted Halo 4. Not only the graphics have their pepp, but also the AI is very challenging. I've only completed few hours on multiplayer yet but I can promise you this: It's so much fun playing Halo 4 online. There are no lags at all and even though other players you are fighting against may have played Halo 4 since release, you will have a chance against them after a short time because the concept of Halo is easy to start with. I also recommend this game to you if it's your first FPS ever. A friend of mine visited me three days ago and after I showed Halo to this FPS-rookie he went to the next gamestore and right on this evening we were playing Halo 4 against each other online. So what is my resumee of Halo 4? It's one of the best games for XBox 360 for sure. It has amazing graphics, the story is superb and super exciting with emotional aspects that will let you beg for a sequel. The multiplayer is the biggest experience when you play Halo for the first time, the weapons are perfectly balancd and even rookies will have an easy access to the game - for some it may be just an FPS, for me it's the best shooter on XBox 360 and probably will be for a long time to come.
Medium low quality graphics, basic scenario, I never was a big fan of the halo franchise, which I played mostly for the vehicles and sci-fi genre. I waited for this one to be at a very low price before I bought it (thank you zavvi), and expected more of the same. Well, as soon as the game begins, I got hit pretty hard by the huge difference in the graphic quality compared to halo reach, which was the less ugly halo game so far. Halo 4, even if it might not compare to the best looking fps, does look great, really. the way the game feels gets you immediately inside the story, and makes you care, where all the previous halo games failed, halo 4 succeeds. easy to play, great ambiance, varied missions, lots of vehicles, plus a free to download spartan ops, which is like a second campaign paralleled with the main storyline. I might not be a fan of the halo series, but I am definitely a fan of halo 4. it is a must buy!
Played it on normal and heroic and loved it!! Very challenging and with very interesting plot!! Game play was little bit tricky in the beginning, maybe because this was my first halo and with overwhelmingly beautiful graphics! Only thing was little bit not at that high level was the duration of campaign which was about 11 hours do only basics and about 16 searching everywhere and find all secrets. Highly recommended for XBOX 360 and PlayStation fans!!! This is a must play game if you want to be considered serious gamer!!!!!
After completing Halo 4 I feel unusually compelled to write a review of this magnificent game. After completing Halo:Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 3 I watched Forward Unto Dawn which is far superior than usual game to film adaptations and was very entertaining. Events that transpire lead seamlessly to the beginning of Halo 4. Though featuring and initially concentrating upon other characters, Master Chief becomes a pivotal role. Within Halo 4 the fundamental character development resumes upon the unique relationship between Master Chief and Cortana which is expertly written and poses various questions about which entity is more human. As the game progresses this becomes captivating and incredibly moving. Throughout the campaign, constant action sequences are superbly entertaining and graphics are excellent, especially when focusing on facial design to convey emotion. Unfortunately I cannot comment on multiplayer as I favour story in game design rather than organised combat. This game has immediately become one of my favourites and having been a gamer for over 15 years it is refreshing to see such efforts made to enhance storytelling in what is essentially a FPS that exceeded boundaries with a deft feat of emotional resonance coupled with gripping action.
New team 343 Industries have done an excellent job with Halo 4 after taking over from Bungie. The graphics for the cut scenes are amazing! Almost film like, I want to see a Halo film after this. The graphics also are the best I've seen in any Halo game. Strange colours, good detail, nice levels like the swamp. I love the story, about a vampire looking creature called a Didact. There's new weapons like the Mantis, a wallking mech, loads of new guns, it's excellent! A must have for Halo fans. Get it before 343's Industries new Halo game for the Xbox One. Watch the new trailer on Xbox live. Also the only reason why I could afford this game was because of Zavvi's cheap price. Thanks!
I was a bit sceptical when Bungie left the Halo 4 franchise and it was taken up by 343 Industries but they've done a great job on the game and you wouldn't know that it was done by a different studio at all. The graphics on the game are good and I like the Spartan Ops mode as well as the consistently good online multiplayer. If you do just prefer to do the campaign then there are a good say 10 hours of gameplay to keep you occupied. It goes without saying that if you are a fan of any of the previous Halo games then you are going to love this!
To be honest: I wanted to like Halo 4 more, but I just can't. For me, Halo was always about the multiplayer, but Halo 4 made drastic changes here. It's somewhat like CoD now. Not really my cup of tea, so I will probably still play Halo: Reach. But the campaign is actually very good, although 343 Industries haven't made any experiments with the weaponry - all new weapons feel somewhat generic, to be honest.
Halo 4 is one of the best first person shooters on the Xbox360. The game has an intense story driven campaign which can be played solo or cooperatively. Once you finish the campaign you have 2 great modes of play. The first is War Games, which is a competitive multi-player and has tons of great game types which you can play. It can be played online and offline with 4 players on one console. The second mode is Spartan Ops, which is a cooperative multi-player, but can also be played solo. In this mode you can continue the story of Halo 4 within 10 episodes each consisting of 5 chapters. The game is easy to learn and quite fun, especially if you play with friends.
Halo 4 is not Halo. It feels like a different game. That was my feeling after finishing it. Gameplay is great and perhaps this will be enough for most of the players... but this is not Halo and this is not enough for Halo fans like me. How the battle evolves, how the music increases the feeling that you are playing something epic, how everything is explained... all these things that made Halo one of the best shooter sagas are gone with Bungie. Halo 4 is not epic, the OST is bad, really bad, story is plain and without interest.... a really disappointing game.
343 industries clearly did everything they could to make this game a masterpiece, and it is. The story is amazing, we never had this kind of perspective of Master Chief and Cortana. The story is deeper than any other Halo, you'll end up with such an emotional connection with the characters, more than you ever thought could be possible. The game play is better than ever! With the new armour abilities and with such diversified weapons, you'll have so much fun. And of course, the multiplayer is spectacular, the map style is unique and the Infected game type is great and you and your friend can play as actual zombies. Big team slayer is now actually fun unlike (in my opinion) other Halo games, with the "Mantis" and other great patents, exclusive load outs and look to every Spartan and the new "Spartan ops" which is an episodic game series designed especially for co-op game play with cut scenes and a different story. This game is perfect, (buy gold to enjoy it fully of course) the story won't disappoint.
I pre-ordered this game and haven't put it down since. This game is amazing. I liked the campaign a lot, and also liked the multiplayer. I have played previous Halo games also, but this one stands out, visually and regarding gameplay. The gameplay seems refined and smooth. The sound is fantastic. I would recommend Halo 4 to every xbox360 gamer out there.
343 games have done a really nice job with this sequel. Everything is changed, not better or worse but just different. Is like playing a new game with a very close friend. The graphic is really amazing, never found a better one on the x360. Better played with friends! fun over and over! One bad thing: a lot of coop game type are only available on live gold user, even if they are in split screen.
