    Halo 4 review

    By 1 November 2012

    The original Halo game practically made the Xbox. Master Chief’s unmissable escapades have been solid throughout the series’ history, steered along smoothly by developer Bungie. The now nearly legendary developer has moved on to pastures new, leaving...
