I think Halo 4's graphics are a little better than just "terrific," they're just about the best we've seen on the Xbox 360.

Seemed like a solid group of reviews.

Out of curiosity since I noticed their omission, do you plan to review the original Call of Duty port on the 360 (It's the first console release of the PC original.. it's downloadable only though), Call of Duty 3, and World at War someday?

There are also several last gen exclusives for further console titles in the series. Call of Duty: Finest Hour and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One were on the PS2/Xbox/GCN I believe. And 'Call of Duty: World at War - Final Fronts' was a PS2 exclusive and a different game from World at War on the three current gen consoles (Unlike Call of Duty 3 where every platform received the same game). 

Might make for a good block of reviews if it sounds like it may be of interest.

I just wanted to say that the reviews, as usual, are not showing up in Chrome.  However, I took your advice Critic, and held shift as I hit refresh, and they appeared.  Seems odd that this is only happening recently.  I've been visiting the site for at least a couple of years using Chrome and don't remember anything not showing up.

Anyway, thanks for the tip.

I agree and would add Call of Duty is starting to show it's age as far as graphics go.

I use Chrome and have never had a problem after hitting "refresh".

I don't understand what you are trying to say.  I myself never had a problem AFTER hitting refresh either.  It's the fact that we have to hit refresh at all that's mind boggling.  I surf the Internet a lot with Chrome, and this is the only site, ever, that I have to hit refresh to see something that's updated.  That means there's something odd going on with THIS site, like there's something wrong with the coding for the homepage.  Whoever does the technical stuff on this website should at least check into it.  You may be losing some viewers who check up on the site periodically, but see nothing new.

I agree this has been a problem for a long time.
It's probably due to the fact that this is one of the few sites with static html pages.
On one hand, the static pages means faster loading and simpler administration for me.
On the other hand, there are caching issues like this.
If anyone has any suggestions about what I can do to fix this, let me know.
Thanks

For what it's worth, I've been using Chrome for several months now and don't have this issue. New reviews are there just like always without any intervention on my part.

If Modern Warfare 3 got an A-, I'd say Black Ops II deserves the same score too. The player choice & amount of content make it one of my favorite shooters of this year. As for Halo 4, I love it even more & would give it an A. It feels like its meant to be played on Legendary as opposed to other shooters which I often feel like are cheating when I flip them up on the highest difficulty. If you love the previous Call of Duty games, Black Ops II is even better.
