So I played it last night. So far, the easiest difficulty is plenty for me to handle. The cut scenes and where they're going with the storyline are the best yet. The gameplay is also pretty darn spot on. It's definitely a technical marvel for a system this old, particularly since it's running in full 720p (no upscaling). I'd say this is one of those where if you're not a great fan of shooters, you'll still probably enjoy it a great deal. It's that good. If you're not a Halo fan you might get slightly lost with the story, but I think the core themes will still resonate.

I sadly don't remember the lore at all. In this game, she's supposed to be disintegrating after 8 years, I think, but the game is about restoring her to health..

I thought in the lore she should only last 7 years max.. so how are the breaking he lore with here still around? or is she a "new" one that knows all the old stuff?

My prob with playing the halo

My prob with playing the halo series on hard is the number of times you must hit enemies coupled with the small clips and ammo starvation. Normal is a decent challenge for me.

Exciting. I hope mine arrives today. It's supposed to. I was playing Batman Arkham City for the first time last night on PS3 (yeah, I know, late) and was being challenged by "Easy," so I may just go for Easy on Halo 4 as well. I'd rather enjoy the experience with my limited time than be overly challenged to the point where I'll need to stop playing (a topic we discussed not so long ago). We'll see...

I got to watch (and play for a bit) Halo4 last night after football (lets just say stores have them now, but don't sell till the release). i didn't play much as I suck at FPS on the consoles, and was ridiculed beyond belief till i gave up the controller. its HALO for sure.. I wont say good or bad as I didn't see enough.. maybe 20-30 minutes of Single player then co-op and PvP.. needless to say the guys i know don't seem to care about the Single Player stuff.

Stuff i noticed- i think some of the Final Fantasy guys helped with cut scenes (long). Whoever does animation for them is good! A HUGE thing i noticed is rewards for exploring a bit.. if the Halo wasn't ripped so Hard form a great book series (ring world) but changed to a gun happy shooter i would view it better i guess. My love for the ringworld books taints me a bit..

its pretty, but Halo was good looking, if not a bit repetitive in the early games. No so much the later ones. Felt a bit like tron with the derezing thing, but i guess all games have it.

I will wait till is cheaper.. but the Halo guys loved it.. all (yep every one) said they would be in line Monday (it is Tuesday release right?)night to buy it at midnight.
