crazy to see the price drop so fast on 360's flagship franchise. If this was on Wii, it would be $60 for like 2 years.

Seriously considering trading my copy into Game Stop, don't even play it since BOPs2 is wayyy more fun

Dam I hope my son enjoys this. I was planning on going through the co-op with him when we open it on Xmas. Is it really that bad?

Halo 4 is worth it at 40.

This game is easily worth 40 IMO, I got the LE at launch and have no regrets.

Don't sweat it, some people are never happy. The game has an 87 on Metacritic and most people I've talked to enjoyed it. I was waiting for it to hit this price. Me and my friend will play the campaign in co-op and then do the Spartan Ops missions together as well. I'm sure it'll be fun.

Cool. He was really bugging me about getting it. I just assumed it was good since all of the other ones were good. I bought it from Amazon back on BF when it came with the $20 credit plus $10 MP3 credit so I guess I got a better deal.

This. Campaign was fun, Spartan Ops is pretty nice too, both are great for co-op.

The problem is the lack of multiplayer maps, allegedly they're going to fix that apart from the DLC maps coming out (which still aren't enough), the variety isn't there right now.

Well that's debatable. The $20 I saved belongs to me whereas the $20 you saved belongs to Amazon. Basically you will have to buy two products at Amazon to get $20 off whereas I get the same $20 savings but on a single product. As for the Mp3 credit, I'm pretty sure it is irrelevant to most people.

It was a deal for me since I do a lot of shopping on Amazon. I got a full $20 credit after buying just one Halo 4. I do agree that it's probably much better to pay $39.99 since I could have used the extra 20 at any other store. The MP3 credit comes in handy when I'm looking for a rare song and can't find it free at the usual places =)

Still enjoying the game, and I personally enjoyed the campaign. I still feel taht Halo: Reach had the strongest campaign and story. But Halo 4 is totally worth it at $40 too.

It costs $34.99 if you redeem and use the $5 off $25 promotional credit (if you haven't used it on something else already). Today is the last day you can redeem or spend the credit, so you might as well use it on this so it doesn't go to waste.

Me too, but the $10 was for Instant Video for me. I thought Halo 4 was great, but I haven't played multiplayer yet. I did solo legendary, then went back to BLOPS 2 multi-

Being someone who has played since the start, it has gone too mainstream and followed COD. The weapon system is plain terrible. Campaign is short at 8 missions. And spartan ops is too repetitive.


Weapon system isn't too bad, but it isn't as balanced as before. I've only played campaign and I used the UNSC sniper once during the missions. WTF. Campaign is a little shorter, but I believe that legendary makes it much, much better.

Nobody knows. It will be at KMart and those other retailers, but Amazon is unknown. Why not buy now w/ $5 off $25?

the game is pretty good, but the campaign is too melodramatic (and the story is weak) and its pretty repetitive at points. Co-op is still fun though.

if you like small maps there wont be much to keep you on this, though. At this point there are 5 maps for 4v4, and only 2 are actually good. New map pack out soon only has bigger maps as well :/ I love Halo but I've been playing a lot more COD because Halo got boring pretty fast

used the $5 off $25 and got it for $34.99. Now I also synced my AMEX awhile back so if I beat it I get $25 statement credit.

All these opinions in this thread.... Hey, I've played Halo since the beginning and this is by far the best campaign out of them all. Halo Reach had the crappiest campaign IMO.

The franchise is in good hands with 343!

Not 100% sure if the option is still available, but if you can still link your AMEX card with xbox for this, it makes this deal look even better. $10 credit for just syncing the card, $25 credit for beating campaign by end of January, and $50 credit if you spend $100 @BestBuy for beating 1 mission of Spartan Ops.

I can name multiple games that stretch the limits of graphics. But graphics are besides the point. They failed with Spartan Ops and a campaign beatable in a day and multiplayer being nothing special, this is a rental.


Do you play fighting games for the campaign too?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Maybe not exactly out dated, but its been the same since Halo 3. They can do better, but they choose not too.


Seriously been trolling this thread hard. If you knew anything about the redesign of the game you would have never made the graphics comment. Almost every asset was redone for this game. You don't like the game? Fine no reason to be talking shit on this thread.

We see you trollin' you hatin' .... Just about any games story is beatable in a day if you sit there and play it all day...
