The Halo series has been the cynosure of the Xbox library of games ever since inception with the trademark console about a decade back.The compact storyline and the futuristic multi-player insignia gave it a game to die for label, and albeit Call of Duty BO has hurled its crown in the XBOX Love , it remains an all time loved Game.
Set in the causatumof Halo 3, Master Chief comes back to affront his own destiny and face a resident ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Well this might sound quite a flat out plot however there is no reason to be disappointed , the weapon layout and behavior is exactly the same.Classic strategies like attacking in with a spunk of bullets batted by a swift melee attack, does the same as they did before . The dual -weapon and dual -grenade layout remains untouched And the platter is the same on control applet as well. As in Halo: Reach, you have a few different weapon layouts that can be customized between matches. Thus majority of the game is based on the similar multi-player base layer which you have been ogling at for the past decade.
However with so much similarity and basically built on the same framework HALO 4 definitely has the potentials to trump its predecessors, ensuring a steady supply of arsenal. Halo 4’s art direction, above all deserves a special mention. The Gothic circa and environment packed with some of the best in class technology, which is considered a tradition once again creates a magic.
Nitti- grit ties
Halo 4's Multi player is baptized Infinity, it inherits its name from a 3 kilometer-long vessel ( named the UNSC Infinity) sent into deep space flocked with Spartans, who combat in training sessions. Multi-player modes are 2 now War Games (Death-match, Capture the Flag etc.) and Spartan Ops (a co-op, episodic mode). Few developments made to the Halo 4’s multi-player makes it all the more desirable.
Here are few:
Loadouts called Specializations are made available, Rather than the entire fraternity rolling out with the similar weapons online, players introduce customized weapons during the combat.
Sprinting is a default activity available to all.
Sneak peak of the Plot
A major chunk of the plot point in Halo 4 will rotate around Cortana nearing the end of her natural life cycle, which is approximately 7 years. She has amalgamated with the Forerunner technology and the Gravemindand thus is junked with information. The ageing effect causes Artificial Intelligences to display signs of insanity.
Brand new enemy : Prometheans
The Covenant is not the initial enemy you need to combat with in Halo 4 However You will be up against a resident ancient evil however new enemies with different shapes called Prometheans will be after your life in Halo4.Majority of humanoid , bug-like creatures will not less you cruise alone on the console.
Halo 4 pumps the idea of extra ordnance. Brings forth enough murders for your team, and you'll have the opportunities to order some ordnance as and when needed which you can chose from a plethora of weaponry to temporary stat increments . Even if that sounds like it would be a way to host a comeback , use during hurt hour or maintain your team's lead, the advantages aren't overwhelming The balanced factor however is the stages requires lot of skills and a fragment of luck to determine winners and losers in the game.
The Arsenals section of Halo 4 is enriched and overloaded .We came across a handheld bomb launcher setup complete with RD remote detonator and a shotgun with bullets that reverbed on walls . More and varied weaponry is going to fill the weaponry store in due course, however if they will be charged for wasn’t revealed. But goes without saying Halo 4 brings forth some innovative inventions and prototypes which a player would always expect from a high end game as Halo.
Now, the million dollar question! Is it worth the money? Developers 343 industries and Microsoft team has put together lot of efforts in developing the Halo 4, and just before the release it is currently hoing through the last minute polishing .Innovation has even gone up to the extent of integrating audio cues for powering the console on or off, and opening its disc tray. The Military themed, new- alive object running the Halo 4 show is a pure head turner, albeit it is too early to comment on how the fans are going to react to its sinful similarity with the predecessors.
Halo 4 is all set to launch on November 6th for $59.99 and if you are still confused on if you should be getting your hands on it, we reckon you do that with any further hesitation as its high end graphics and engaging game play is sure to take your XBOX-perience to another level.
