The reviews are rolling in for Halo 4, and the game is universally being very well received, scoring 89/100 on Metacritic, and receiving 100/100 from multiple sites.
The game is the first edition under the stewardship of 343 Industries, and the result has exceeded expectations.
A staff of more than 340 worked on the title, which IGN has called “possibly the best game of 2012”
After soaking in the new game, I am beyond thrilled to be so in love with Halo again, more than I’ve been since Halo 2. Halo 4 is a masterstroke everyone can and should celebrate, and its two guaranteed sequels instantly make the next-generation Xbox a must-own system, with Halo 5 its most anticipated title. Halo has been rebuilt. It has been redefined. And it has been reinvigorated. The Xbox’s original king has returned to his rightful place on the throne.
The game is set to be be released November 6th. See IGN’s full review here.
