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. Also aside from the Prometheans, Cortana is turning rampant and has begun to turn on the Master Chief. As a new twist, the Master Chief will be working together with the Spartan IV's the ...

Quotes

Thomas Lasky: You know, I was sent down here with orders to prevent you from leaving. In case you'd already gone, I took the liberty of ordering a Pelican, outfitted for full combat pursuit. I hope to God you're wrong about that Forerunner... or whatever he is, Chief. But in the event you're not...
[Gestures towards Pelican]
Thomas Lasky: And Chief... good luck. To both of you.
Cortana: C'mon, Chief. Take a girl for a ride.

Master chief returns for more bloody alien combat
3 May 2013 | by lethelweaponSee all my reviews

I have to admit, the halo franchise is something I have had very little experience in and know next to nothing about. But after getting hooked on halo 4 I can make a guess of what they they're all about. Halo 4 is revolved around master chief escaping after being kidnapped. the story and gameplay are both engaging and interesting but even compare to the maps and not to mention the graphics. the basic tactic to halo is to engage into combat and eliminate the enemy. compared to other shooter games such as modern warfare which is all tactical halo is just fun. there is very little thinking required its just pick varies weapons, engage the enemy and try not to get killed. Although the story to halo 4 isn't as good as the others (so I've heard) fans wont be disappointed, and if your not a halo player (like me) you'll still have a blast!
