Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Part 4 Review
Summary: This episode would either make or break the series. Without a doubt, it has been made.
With 10 days, 4 hours, and 30 minutes left until Halo 4 arrives (but who’s counting anyways?), we have 2 more episodes to find out what happens to Hastati Squad. Here is the 4th installment to the series:
The introduction to the Master Chief as some unknown robot-like soldier is a very new concept to the Halo universe. We all know who the Master Chief is but there was a time that he was this new being that the universe didn’t know about nor his purpose. Getting a different perspective of him, as a young soldier, is a nice touch for Forward Unto Dawn.
But the most exciting part of the episode for me was seeing the live action Covenant. The Elites look menacing as ever and the Jackals look decent. We don’t get a very good look at them since they kind of stand back. Though that kind of fits because Jackals are usually the support that stands back and takes pot shots. And the Covy weapons! Oh my the Covy weapons. Simply spectacular! The slow-mo shots of the Needler and plasma pistol were amazing! Truly a great episode.
Tune in next week for the dramatic conclusion to Halo: Forward Unto Dawn and be sure to pick up Halo 4 for the Xbox 360 on November 6th at your local game retailer.
