Obviously because it took a more emotional route with cortana and chief's relationship.

Game was too short. That cortana/master chief love scene was so off the mark it made me want to barf. And there's something that's too smooth about the filters for multiplayer. There's also a total lack of balance and well placed weapon drops.

I don't know what this is, but it's not Halo.

That aside, what little campaign there was did play well, but of course, there was too little of it.

I'm actually disappointed now that the game is over, and I might go back to multiplayer reach...

I'm trying to figure out a really good loadout. Everytime i put a DMR and a Boltshot, my friend LawlsMarine yells at me that it is too overpowered. I'm pretty much forced to use a Storm Rifle and a Magnum [which i dont have a big problem with]. But, anyway my Storm Rifle is on Expert and my Magnum is almost on Master. But yet LawlsMarine uses a Carbine and a Plasma Pistol. Thats kind of overpowered. Right?

So I'm getting Halo 4 tomorrow for Christmas. I'm not a huge fan of the series but I have been playing the whole franchise from the very beginning. Is there anything I should expect?

Different controls, a beautiful new world, a less-epic campaign, METAL GEAR mecha, Assault Rifles that can actually hurt people, decent multiplayer, enjoyable but repetitive Spartan Ops co-op missions, improved Forge mode, not so improved Forge Worlds, and holographic Spartans teabagging your dead body. And if you play Flood, hearing that damn infected horse whinny over and over.

Anything I miss, fellas?

Game match types switching every once in a while, armor customization, retarded people that will betray you the chance you get into a matnis (which is why you stomp on them and tea bag to hell), and I definitely recommend playing Halo 4 on legendary (it's not too difficult).

The campaign was fantastic, it was extremely short but it was a blast all the way through. The multiplayer has been infuriating me so much recently. I'm SR 95 right now I believe, but the only time I can have fun whilst playing online now is when I'm playing with my friends. Playing by myself makes me want to die. I believe, in its current state, Halo 4's multiplayer is broken.

Nope. These are some pretty good points as to why, but not all.

Halo 4 has a lot of problems but it is still salvagable. A few patches and it will be saved, but 343 Industries is horrible at community management.

Is Spartan Ops/Co-op campaign extremely laggy for anyone else? War Games is fine, but co-op is just unplayable for me.

Only time they lag for me is when it's my own fault.
...So it's probably your connection.

It must be something to do with my connection, but I'm just confused as to why it's only with co-op since War Games doesn't lag at all.

I haven't played the entire campaign but I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with the forerunner enemy combat in that it has no distinction whatsoever from normal combat. I haven't played the entire campaign but so far it seems like a lot of this crap could've been crow-barred into halo 3 and 2 respectively.

If one things for sure it's that it doesn't touch Halo Reach in quality, the best in the series.

Different network modes.
Multiplayer, everyone sends their data to a single player, the "host", who ultimately decides the actions in the match, then sends them back to everyone. So if the host doesn't see it, it never actually happened. Lag here is from issues with sending/recieving from host, which is why only you lag (unless you got selected as host, then everybody will lag).
Single Player and Firefight/Spartan Ops (FF/SpOps are the same thing), everyone is the "host" basically and in addition, all the data shared MUST sync up, so the game will halt until everyone's on the same page, thus lag.

Damn, I should make my own video on this, but unfortunately I don't have a capture card, or a decent mic. I just really haven't been having fun with this game.

I just got this recently. I heard it was turned into CoD, but holy shit I wasn't expecting it to be like this. They've fundamentally changed multiplayer into Call of Halo: Space Warfare. This is very disappointing.

I never said halo was a CoD clone, what I meant was that they made the multiplayer unnecessarily like CoD. Halo multiplayer stood out before, now it's adapted to the CoD system, making it horribly unbalanced compared to before.

Carry a plasma pistol with you and take those damn things out. Whenever you EMP them they have no chance at all of survival. But yes, jumping over them whenever they are flying towards you is trickier than it should be given how common they are.
