    Yet another example of IGN spreading 9/10s all over the place, nothing new to see here people.

    Of course it matters how someone states something.

    And considering the Halo series to be a masterpiece is purely subjective, why don't you call out the person who claimed that because he is stating his opinion as fact?

    Rating scores have being suffering a inflation in the last years. A 6/10 game is not an average game anymore, it is considered crap. I wouldn't say that IGN was paid for this review, but I would say that IGN's 9.8/10 doesn't mean what a 9.8/10 is supposed to mean.

    That wasn't stated directly at you, was just stating it in general, I shoulda put that sentence elsewhere >_>

    This pretty much, if a game gets an 8/10 on IGN it would have gotten a 6/10 before.

    A review from IGN is like asking a used car salesman for their "honest" opinion. You know what they are going to say so there really isn't any need to ask.

    IGN often give big budget games favourable scores. You come to expect that, and like any gamer with a modicum of common sense, you browse and peruse a variety of gaming sites, and ultimately come to a conclusion if it's worth your purchase.

    As much as I loved Halo 1 and 2, and spent countless hours on Xbox Live with Halo 2, the game has run its course for me. I played through Halo 3 once, never bothered with ODST or Anniversary, and got bored of Reach before I was even half way through. I hope it does well, for 343's sake, because they had a tough task taking over from Bungie.

    Are you serious?

    Every Halo game is a "masterpiece" ?

    Regardless of what any review company gives this game its true value cannot be judged untill after release and people settle into the online, While the singleplayer and spartan ops are nice the real jewel of Halo since halo 2 has been its online. Reach looked like a great game and got good reviews untill we got the online and saw how shity it was.

    IGN does do good video reviews sometimes. Watch the video review and you wont think its such a outrageous score right away. The game is microsofts main big and pretty much only exclusive its no surprise they put as much into as they could. Having said that some of what the video review says at the end seems put on.

    I love Halo but i dont trust IGN there reviews seem off sometimes. I hope the game is good Im not going to play it until all the hype dies down

    hah, IGN.
    The bigger the check, the higher the score.

    I love Halo, but i don't trust any of these scores.

    PS. I've played Halo 2 with a friend once and think it was Halo 1 story with other friend, was horrible with pad and always will be.
    All I see is a CoD fanboy thinking his game is the shit.... News flash, all games borrow some sort of mechanic or gimmick from other games... all games didn't evolve from God of War and Call of duty.

    Halo wasn't the first to have power armoured marines with shields... that was warhammer 40k, but it took gw multiple yrs to finally put their beloved space marines into a 3rd person shooter.

    anyway, reviews only help sell the game, nothing more or less.

    are you mad cause WoW now has a farming system to use with the new farms it has? keep in mind WoW's had farms since vanilla. Battling pets in a setting like azeroth, with war hungry warlords hardly seems like a stretch.

    Does halo 4 have cover mechanics (GoW)? If not - fuck it.

    It'll prolly be a fun, short game, just like all the other halo installments. The multiplayer will be terrible due to the fanbase, unless you play with friends on a seperate voice server, just like all the others.
