The Master Chief returns to battle an ancient evil bent on vengeance and annihilation. Shipwrecked on a mysterious world, faced with new enemies and deadly technology...the universe will never be the same.
This game is terrible. It completely destoyed all the mystery of the previous games and retconned the series to absolute crap. No explanation is given for Master Chiefs new armor, Cortana mentions changing the firmware but the dent from halo 3 is still present implying it's supposed to be the same armor. The layout and state of the forward unto dawn is also retconned, the gravity is disabled at the end of halo 3 but it's working just fine in halo 4, along with all it's weapon systems. The missions are straight-forward and feel confined, the wide open areas you might remember from halo 1-3 on missions like 'halo' and 'the ark' are gone. The Didact and Librarian from halo 3's side story now feel shallow thanks to 343. The multiplayer feels a lot like a watered down COD, and it doesn't feel nearly as smooth as reach. Where Reach ran fine halo 4 lags, and you might as well just play COD really. In my opinion, halo 4 is a complete waste of money.
