I am not a Halo fan at all; but I will play any game that has cooperative elements in it. Halo has gotten so much hype and I don't understand why. And after trying out every Halo game before this one I kind of still don't; however I do like the game so far. I am not going to spoil anything for you. This blog was posted just to post my impressions of this game so far.
I like the pace of this Halo 4 campaign a lot more than the previous games. To me the last three games had a terribly slow start. The beginning of the game feels a bit more action packed and the story seems to have more of an edgy, darker feel to it. I am bit interested to see how the story unfolds.
The graphics of the game is incredible to look at on an HD TV. I was blowen away. The game is clearly the best looking Halo game ever made. The textures are spot on, the character models look really realistic, the facial expressions are well done, and the sense of scale is really out of this world. This is most likely the best looking Xbox 360 game to date.
The gameplay is similar to previous Halo games; however there are a few changes here and there. I like the inclusion of back grabs. Plus there is a bit more interaction with the environment. For instance, avoiding hazards as you climb.
The sounds of the weapons are also different as well. The weapons sound like they have more of a punch. The weapons not only sound good; but the power of the weapons have been beefed up a little. The explosions from the environment and grenades are also spectacular.
I haven't played much of the game; but so far I find it very interesting. Halo and non Halo fans tell me your thoughts about the first thirty minutes of playing Halo 4.
