prologue//amazon didn´t send me my limited edition halo 4 copy i preordered this summer! they will send it on wedenesday now, said sorry and gave me 10 euro refund. it sucks. i bought a regular copy today, couldn´t wait. will sell that one when the limited arrives.//
I made this thread because i am really interested in what you guys think of the game.
i only played the campaign for an hour or so. and the mp for 1,5 hours or so....so these are very very fresh halo 4 feelings:)
whatever - here are my first impressions:
halo 4: it is darker, much darker, has some cool lightning effects. cutscenes and facial animations are very impressive. first firefights definiteley felt like halo. campaign this far is really great, the warthog sounds like a lawnmower though....and, did i mention that, it is much much darker? feels a bit odd to me.
here´s where i am having some problems. the guns sound weird to me, some vehicles too.
it´s darker too.
i loved reach and in the artdesign department i am not so sure if i really prefer this new look....actually i think i don´t.
imho you can easily see and feel that this is not a bungie game.
i am not so sure if i like the customizable loadouts too.
i think it was just fine with preset loadouts.
i really was more impressed with my first hours of reach. the first time i played the beta i was blown away.
halo 4 is so damn dark........it feels strange to me - seriously.
they definitely made it more codish in the mp. the loadouts, the armor abilities/perks. generally it doesn´t take that many hits to get the kill i think.
don´t get me wrong, it plays very well and this is definiteley halo, esp. the campaign felt authentic this far....has a very combat evolved style opening to it...
still....the mp....hmmmm. i don´t know really....this far, i am a bit disappointed. it is as if they didn´t really hit my personal taste. like i said: early impressions though.
ok gotta keep playing. would love to hear your 2 cents about this.
