God bless those hard working user-generated content people — the folks that strive over games like LittleBigPlanet and Trials Evolution, giving us all something to do once we’ve finished the game we paid for. I salute you. As a fan of Halo, I particularly love Forge creators — some of my favourite maps on Halo 3 and Halo: Reach have been forged maps. Now the team at 343 has put together a new video describing some of the game’s new creative functions.
I’ve slowly come round to the idea of Halo 4. I recently spent a good three hours with the single player, multiplayer and the new co-op feature Spartan Ops, and it felt like Halo. I realise how silly that sentence sounds, but Halo is a delicate thing — tinkering with the formula, as 343 has done, is a dangerous thing. I’m glad to see that, so far, it seems as though the team has managed to retain the unique feel of Halo while putting its own stamp on the series.
