Halo 4 is the start of a new saga in the Master Chief's story. This saga is known as the Reclaimer Saga. At the end of the legendary mode of Halo 3 we see Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 orbiting a planet and hear him say to Cortana "Wake me when you need me". Well now is the time to be needed. The game starts where you last left off in a torn in half ship orbiting a planet around four years after the events of Halo 3. John wakes up to Cortana screaming "John I need you!" This creates the beginning of a new saga. In Halo 4 we see a new breed of enemies called the Prometheans. The Prometheans are AIs created by the Forerunners to protect a planet. Unfortunately you're seen as a threat. However despite being made by the Forerunners the Prometheans have a much darker and more sinister plot.

User Reviews

Not horrible, but nowhere near as good as any of the bungie games.

Just finished it. Story aside, this game had parts that were unnecessarily difficult, and I played on Normal. And the story was good, it would've been nice if I could've been able to pay attention to it instead of having to put all of my focus on not dying. Master Chiefs armor change makes no sense, he's been frozen in the Dawn for four years and somehow he has a completely different set of armor? And they made Cortana look like an anime girl. I would've have given this game a 7/10 if it weren't for the stupidly difficult parts.
