Metacritique: Halo 4

Looking for some laughs? Look no further than Metacritic’s User Reviews!

Below, you’ll find the best (worst) negative AND positive Halo 4 user reviews on tap at Metacritic.com!

Score: 3

Whilst I have only played normal difficulty, fighting an elite in past halo games was an awesome challenge. Halo 4’s elites do not feel challenging or smart, as well as the other enemies, something that did not exist on the normal difficulty setting of other halo’s.

Well, if you’re not getting the challenge you want on Normal, there are TWO other difficulty settings.

Multiplayer is fun, but it’s not halo multiplayer – the ultimate thrill of halo multiplayer was never in a perks/ability system, but just in the fact it was halo…

The “ultimate thrill” definitely wasn’t the gameplay. In fact, I often joined multi-player games just to stand around because, hey – it’s Halo!

More plot holes than swiss cheese and it’s not even easy to follow.

Swiss Cheese needs new writers.

Going into the game all I wanted was the same old halo, but 343 in trying to do this actually made it the killer… they need to forget about recycling bungie halo and take some bold steps to make it their own in future titles.…

So more of the same, but different!

This doesn’t seem like a game for people who want to enjoy playing games it’s a marketing tool to advertise Mountain Dew’s and Doritio’s latest gunk they want to shove down your throats.

Yeah, I thought it was kind of weird when Master Chief climbed out of that cryochamber and pounded a bottle of Dew. I’m starting to get tired of Cortana talking through a mouth full of Doritos every time she pops into my HUD, too. Still, I can’t help shoving that gunk down my many throats.

…the dull and uninspiring levels that have been polished to the point I can smell the polish coming off it.

Good…?

Score: 0

Does the game deserve the score itself I have given? Of course not, and no game does, but it’s not really about that.

Reviews aren’t about reviewing, and no game deserves a zero, but this game gets a zero.

When you see so many “professional” reviews giving perfect scores to a game whose existence is embarrassing in the first place, you need to wonder what’s going on.

When so many people don’t share the same opinion that you have, they’re all wrong. Also, conspirators.

Like I said, it does not deserve a 0, but it does not deserve a high score either.

Too bad the rating scale consists of only 0 and 10.

…or the pressure to give an AAA title a good score regardless of its content… Halo 4 simply because it is an AAA title…

Does this guy actually read “AAA” as “ay-ay-ay”…?

And then there’s Cortana. First of all, for some reason they changed her appearance from reasonably respectable and well kept to a naked and chubby butterface, making it look like they tried to shoehorn sex appeal into the game, and failed miserably.

I have a feeling that because he used “chubby butterface” in the latter description, it’s safe to assume what he means by “reasonably respectable and well kept” in the former.

And this is all without mentioning the awful advertising campaign. You’ve probably seen the Doritos and Mountain Dew stuff floating around…

Every time there’s zero gravity, the screen is just lousy with the stuff. Look, none of that advertising affects your experience with the game. No one is following you home and shouting “Doritos” at random intervals while you play.

Videogames have gone from a simple past-time to something that is sponsored by food companies, shamelessly endorsed, and where AAA titles simply must have a near perfect score because it would be incomprehensible otherwise.

It’s still pretty simple. READ reviews.

Score: 0

Absolutely disgusting. Overall, the game is “Good” but in respect to it being a part of the Halo franchise? No. It’s an absolute shame to everything Bungie worked so hard to achieve.

The game is disgusting, but it’s good. It’s good, but zero.

And the Dewrito and Dubstep crap makes me want to vomit.

Again, I have to agree: The rave you bust-up with the Covenant snorting Dorito dust is shameless and tacky.

Not to mention how blatantly paid off the entirety of gaming journalism is. Really? I’ve played this game. It isn’t crap, but by all that is and ever was, it is NOT worthy of the praise and scores it is receiving.

So you think the reviews are bad for giving it great scores when it deserves, in your opinion, much less. And yet, you say it isn’t a bad game, but gave it the lowest score possible. Who can I trust to tell me what to think!?

Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves for propagating the ruination of this industry.

If only everyone could be so open-minded and enlightened.

Score: 10

The best game of my life .

Score: 10

All the negative reviews are CoD players who want **** games.

And all the journalists who gave it stellar reviews are corrupt! Or fanbois! What is it with gamers?

Seriously, you can’t buy a game JUST for multiplayer.

Seriously, you can. You can even buy a game JUST to use it as a coaster.

The story was amazing, if all you care about is multiplayer go play CoD, Halo is for serious people who are over the age of 13.

Halo is a bullet on my resume for that very reason. What does it matter? Play what you like to play and let everyone else do the same.

Score: 10

I don’t understand the negative reviews here, seems to be a lot of fanboys from the Call of Duty franchise trying to make this game look bad.

They’re probably getting a cut of the money that journalists get paid for fluffing reviews to get people to buy more junk like Mountain Dew and Doritos. It’s all coming together…

If you are on the fence about this game don’t be, it answers the questions you were looking for and more.

Because in life, we’re all just looking for questions.

Score: 10
