The Question: Is Halo 4 living up to the hype?

Sound off on one of 2012's biggest games!

Today is sloooooow. It's the day after the US presidential elections, and the day after Halo 4 launched, so the game industry is busy sleeping off one heck of a late night. We're still here though, and today's the perfect time for another QUESTION. 

Those of you who were giddy with excitement over Halo 4 have undoubtedly picked it up and spent some time with DA CHIEF by now. There have been glowing reviews, fan frenzy, and more Mountain Dew promotions than you can shake a stick at, but the burning question is this -- has it been worth it? Has one of 2012's most hyped games lived up to your expectations? 

Did 343 Industries step comfortably into Bungie's big shoes? Was the story all you'd hoped for? Does the multiplayer still hold up? Does it actually matter that they didn't include iron-sights for the guns? Conversely, does it feel like it's too predictable? More of the same? Was it perhaps not quite the shining beacon of perfection you wanted?

Either way, the question is yours to be answered. Not mine. I have no opinion on Halo 4. I wouldn't dare.
