Great price. I bought it at launch and have really enjoyed it. Campaign took almost 8 hours. It was good but sometimes it felt a bit repetitive. Spartan Ops is great for co-op or short sessions since each chapter takes about 10 minutes to finish. I've been playing a lot of Big Team Battle recently and it's awesome. Much better than Reach's.

Do you play fighting games for the campaign too?


..yes. Also sports games (though I play those just as much online).

What's wrong with playing a FPS for its SP?

God, I really wish I waited for a sale on this game. Mulltiplayer is a joke and I haven't touched this game in weeks.

Are you serious? You only buy Halo for the MP? Especially for a series that has had a shit MP in every game since the disappointment known as H3.

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


You people need to play more games. Halo 4 has probably some of the best graphics ever seen on the xbox. Not even close to being outdated. Now if you want to compare to pc games...then sure, it's a 7 yr old console.

Nothing wrong with playing games just for the campaign. However, you can't judge those type of games SOLELY on the campaign.

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.

Halo stinks, way overrated. Just like Call of Duty though. Whatever floats your boat!

Campaign isn't all that bad though it's a bit on the short side if you play on anything but legendary solo. The multiplayer while it can be fun the random ordinance drops completely ruin the balance of the game. You could be winning and then the other team gets ordinance drops of binary rifles and incineration cannons which the DMR and standard drops have a real hard time over coming. And 90% of the time you play a map you'll end up playing on Haven because the rest of the maps have horrible balance (Complex CTF anyone) Don't get me wrong it's a good game but it has plenty of faults. Though at this price it's worth it. However at $60 I'd say no, though to be fair the majority of games aren't worth the $60 pricepoint.

I bought it at launch at BBY simply because of all the various deals going on ($20 preorder credit, AmEx synch offers). Never played a Halo game before so had no expectations. Thought it was decent enough for the campaign, but wasn't blown away or anything. No interest in the MP, so just traded it back to BBY for $38. Well worth the -$135 it cost me, for sure.

I've waited this long I can wait a little more to snap it up for $30 or less.

Does the $5 off $25 work on this? It would make the game $34.99...

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?


No, the game is AMAZING people on here are crazy, lol. I have Halo 4 and BLOPS 2 and I NEVER pay BLOPS... I play Halo almost everyday.

I haven't even had the desire to play the BLOPS 2 multiplayer...I've p ly played like 3 levels of the campaign.

Where as I've already put around 40 hours into Halo 4.

I think Halo 4 online is more fun but the Call of Duty campaigns are so much more fun than Halo campaigns. In CoD, I feel like an action hero in a movie.

Also, I wonder why people bash on the campaign or ignore them for Halo and CoD games? Don't people realize that 75% of the development time is spent on the campaign? Creating a few multiplayer maps and weapons doesn't take as nearly as long as designing the levels, developing a storyline, AI, recording all the dialogue, cutscenes, etc.

Opinions are opinions I guess, haha. I love all aspects of Halo 4 more. First thing I did was beat the single player before I even started playing spartan ops or the multiplayer. I think Halos story is much better, and I think the graphics and polish are better.

Dude, don't second guess it! Lol. $34.99 for that game is a STEAL! I am considering buying a 2nd copy so my wife and I can play without split screen.

Same here, got the MLG credit e-mail, but nothing about instant video. The offer on the site says it will post to the account after the game ships. Game shipped yesterday, but the offer says the credit will appear within 2 days, so we'll see what happens.

Lol. I used to be like that, too. Now I just buy what I want, when I want. If it's really that great of a game, my friends would still want to play it whenever I get around to buying it.

For those of you with GameStop credit, they've got it one day only at $39.99 as well.

Edit: I tried to link it but apparently I'm retar---erm, mentally impaired. Just head over to Gamestop.com if interested.
