In preparation for the soon-to-be-released Master Chief Collection, Aaron Strange does a 2-part retrospective review of Halo 4. Starting with the great campaign.
Halo 4 brings back the legendary Master Chief, after a half decade absence. 343 Industries took some brave chances with Halo 4, which, in my opinion, worked in their favor. They added much more personality to Master Chief, which makes him more likable as a main protagonist.
Bungie, the creator of the Halo franchise, made the Master Chief somewhat of a silent warrior. This, was to make the player feel more immersed, as if to feel as they are the main character of the game. This is why Master Chief will most likely remain faceless.
The original (Bungies) Trilogy, had the previously mentioned 'silent warrior' version of Chief, and 343 bravely decided to have us players see him start to come out of his shell, so to speak. Being treated as an old relic, who's known nothing but harsh combat for most of his life, Chief is starting to discover his humanity, but also at a great saddening loss by the end of Halo 4.
In my personal opinion, Halo 2 is my favorite Halo Story Campaign, now Halo 4 is a very close tie to that title. Insane graphics, gripping story, edge of your seat action, nods to the original games and great new twists.
A fine chapter in the Halo space opera, and a great addition to any gamers library.
