Halo 4 (Xbox 360) review
"343 really does a good job of illustrating emotion and feeling between Master Chief and Cortana. I wholeheartedly mean that. A more amateur take on the dynamic between Master Chief and Cortana would lead to their relationship feeling as cheesy and forced as my making light of the situation above. But through subtle movement and expression – and excellent voice acting – I felt compelled to see how their story would conclude with the hope that Cortana would come out her rampancy all right. This is all the more notable, I think, because basically we’re dealing with a faceless killing machine and a purple-blue sylph. A really hot purple-blue sylph, mind you. But a purple-blue sylph nonetheless. This is easily the best addition 343 delivered for Halo 4, and my hat’s off to them for creating new ways for me to care about characters I’ve been caring about for the better part of 10 years with the full realization that we’re dealing with two characters who are only partly human."
