The One-Sentence Review: Halo 4

Halo 4 marks the first proper entry in the Halo franchise to not be developed by Bungie, with Microsoft’s marquee franchise now in the hands of 343 Industries. The shoes are indeed big to fill; this is a multi-billion dollar franchise, after all. It’s been five years since we’ve followed in the adventures of the Spartan known as John-117. Master Chief is finally back, but is he better than ever?

Review: Halo 4 is a fantastic shooter with multiplayer that’s addictive as ever and a solid campaign that, while setting the bar for other shooters, doesn’t necessarily meet the incredibly high standards the Halo franchise is known for.
