Okay, stop laughing. Yes, the Xbox 360 may be about as exclusive as a bad Kempton Park night club, but that doesn’t mean that the limited releases we saw this year on that platform were half-arsed. Well, except for quite a few Kinect ones, but that goes without saying. No, if there was one exclusive game to have this year on that platform, it would have to be…

Halo 4

The return of the Master Chief was done with style this year, as the license to print money franchise for Microsoft ushered in a new age for that veteran brand. Quintessentially the same game, but bigger, more focused and with drop dead gorgeous visuals, Halo 4 was probably the final such game in that series to be aimed at the Xbox 360, but at least it’s leaving that console with a bang and not a whimper.

Fast, furious and packed with content for the online crowd, it was damn good to once again see the return of the Master Chief.
