Is Halo 4 Epic? – New Video Game Releases – 09/11/2012

Many gamers worried when Bungie left the Halo series and Microsoft pulled in 343 industries to make the much anticipated Halo 4.

Should you have worried? Well Halo 4 was released on Tuesday of this week, and from the little bit of this game I have played I would say no. It’s gotta be one of the best looking games on a console yet and the opening cinematic is stunning.

The story is rather interesting this time also because it’s not so much about saving Earth. I wont spoil it too much, but expect more from our review soon.

Elsewhere on Twitter, we have seen some people saying this is the best game of this generation whilst the highest review score we have seen gave it a 98% rating. Some review sources have said it feels like all the other Halo games and have given it a 7/10.

All in all Halo 4 is sure to be on of the highest selling games this year and it looks like Microsoft may have re lit the Halo fire.

The Kinect sure has been getting a lot of games recently and this week we have Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth has been getting some heft praise from some of our Twitter fans. Reviews have been fairly average but it does look fun.

Missed the Mass Effect series but wanted to get into it from the start? Mass Effect Trilogy is out this week on the Xbox 360 and includes Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3. The PlayStation 3 version should be out sometime in December.

Tropico 4 Gold Edition which includes the full game and the Modern Times expansion is also out this week on PC.

Sony has some rather cool games out this week with LittleBigPlanet Karting and Ratchet & Clank Q-Force. Little Big Planet Karting has had some very mixed reviews ranging from 8/10 claiming it’s a rather good kart racing game down to 6/10 claiming it’s bland in parts and the mechanics feel flawed.  You can grab this on PlayStation 3. Ratchet & Clank Q-Force also received some very mixed scores, this out on PS Vita, PlayStation 3 and features cross play.

Spy Hunter is a classic game and well worth a try but if you own a 3DS you can try out the remake that was also released last month the PS Vita to below average reviews.

Just short of a month before the Wii U hits European shores but the Wii wont give up its throne just yet. The Wii gets 2 new release this week in the form of Pirate Guns that comes with a weird plastic gun and a game I’m sure anyone’s Mum and Gran would like, Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals: Sing & Dance.
