Halo is one of the best video game franchises of all time. There I said it. I love love this series. I have been playing it for years. Halo has one of the best multiplayer platforms. Halo and Call of Duty are usually compared by gamers. You are either in the Halo camp or the Call of Duty camp. I am in the Halo camp obviously. In Halo 4 Bungie (who is the original developer) has stepped down and 343 has taken over. 343 did a pretty amazing job of revamping the series. They made an amazing live action series to watch prior to playing the game. Really it's a great series.. even if you don't play the game you should watch. This is what a Halo movie should be like:
The story in Halo 4 is really good too. Humanity is under attack by an alien race, Master Chief (the main character in the series) is back to help save us. Since this is game 4 in the series you can read more about the history of Halo here. Multiplayer on this game is just as fun as past games. Many people call it Red VS Blue since you are a team of 4 fighting and shooting another team of 4. One being Red one being Blue. There is even a hilarious internet show called Red VS Blue. I am posting episode one here but the difference between episode 1 to the newest episode from today is amazing. The graphics and technology has changed so much in between now and then.
If you haven't checked out the Conan O'Brian series where he plays video games.. you must. It is hilarious. He plays Halo 4 in the next video (which allows you to see the gameplay too). He is actually a voice in the game which is really funny when he encounters his character. I love how he has no idea what he is doing but has fun.
I have played the Halo series for years. Sometimes every night with my friends in multiplayer mode. It is fun to just be online and chat with them while we run around on missions.
Love it 10 out of 10
