Prediction. The game is going to be the highest rated game of the year. It's just looks and plays so much more polished the what we've been used to the last few years. At least on consoles.

Despite having not played it, I give it 4 silver stars out of 2 gold coins. Factor that into the metacritic or whatever average.

I predict scores within the 9.8 and 10 range given the media and how they react to these games.

Chief looks like hes got a bit of a belly in the pic.

Also thanks for including the destructoid review :D
Such early reviews are a bit worrying so ofc I'll be looking out for any shenanigans in them, but hope the game turns out well.

I don't even care about Halo but this game does look excellent. Expecting a 93 metascore from Games Journalism!

Good point, let me Photoshop in some Mountain Dew and Doritos in the reflection of Chief's visor. ;)

Can't wait for the first major publication score below 8.5.

Best part about review threads on mega-hyped games.

You think the reviews will still mention they don't show John Spartans face? I always enjoyed keeping an eye out for that with the previous numbered sequels.

Also, will their be another dramatic reading by Shawn Elliott?

i hope the reviews give different scores for the halo 4 experience when powered by mountain dew and doritos and the plain version. the latter is basically ps3 skyrim.

I don't get it... you mean because Uncharted 3 was lower than Uncharted 2?

i expect the game to get panned heavily by the press for including a mech in a multiplayer map, having a VCR helmet, on screen text for kills, and using a magnum with the flag. for shame, 343. for shame.

How many halo swag bags will it take to get a 9+ metacritic average?

IIRC, Eurogamer gave UC3 an 8/10 and fanboys went apeshit claiming the site was biased and gave it a 'low' score just to sabotage the Metacritic average or some other crazy theory.

Probably because it's the worst community on this forum. Although the Zelda one was pretty funny also.

I would hope that Halogaf is above that but there are a few fanboys around.

After playing and beating it on Heroic I can see this game getting a lot of good reviews. One of the best campaigns since CE.

How many boxes of Doritos and Mountain Dew were you given to give such a glowing review?!

Its hard to get excited for this game. I think the scores will probably be around 94 or so and if that's the case, count me out. I want games to be fresh, innovative, and completely genre-redefining when possible. Also, not another sequel. Maybe I could see renting, but I'm just not sure. I've got too many other games to play anyway between finishing up Kingdom Hearts and doing my 100% run through Disgea 3.

I think all of these reviews are going to be gushing about the game and know one is going to notice missing features like Campaign Films, Film Clips and Campaign Scoring. Or all the other small omissions like whole game types.

Yeah, seems to be a popular thing at IGN. They've done it for years. Review Previews, and Reviews in Progress. Anything for a click, I guess.

Couldn't care less about any of those omissions. I'd rather they focus on Spartan Ops.

Then a few years after that everyone will be reminiscing about how much they loved Reach, and how it was easily the best one.

I remember the exact same reactions when Reach got reviews
