Luke Smith of 1UP was able to see approximately 17 seconds of footage of HALO 3's single player game. 17 seconds isn't much, but he was able to write a page long article about what he saw. Ufortunately there is no video, only the written report.
Visually, the demo is everything that it should be, considering the quality seen in the announcement teaser from E3 2006. While the game is technically in pre-Alpha with presumably a year left in development, the single-player footage looks incredible, so much so that it might make some people say "Gears of Huh?"
...I should have included that in the description. That line blew me away, cause HALO 3 looks good right now in pre-alpha stage, but to think that it could be at "Gears of Huh" level is amazing. Bungie is known for putting out real clean and fresh graphics, but not exactly known for "mind blowing" graphics. That would be great if H3 looked that good. I'm just looking forward to learning what exactly it takes to finish this fight.
I like the Sound of "Gears of Huh?". I cant wait to blast mutha fu*kas.
"The footage is all in-game and being played (it's been captured using Halo 3's new Saved Films movie feature). Think back to the E3 2003 presentation -- it's like that, but not dark. Master Chief's Battle Rifle looks different; has it been upgraded? It almost looks partially cobbled together. There appears to be wear and tear on the weapon -- the muzzle, while open in Halo 2, seems to be even moreso right now (Bungie tells us it is the same Battle Rifle, despite any perceived aesthetic differences). The scope still reflects light, and now it appears to use the real time reflection we saw in the H3 announcement teaser. Visually, the demo is everything that it should be, considering the quality seen in the announcement teaser from E3 2006. While the game is technically in pre-Alpha with presumably a year left in development, the single-player footage looks incredible, so much so that it might make some people say "Gears of Huh?" Just one thing DAMN if it makes you go "Gears of Huh?" this thing must be bigger then live. Imagine that. Just imagine it. Gears is already on a lonely high platform. Above any other game on any format at this point in time. It rocks already. I am already saying wow but still this would make you forget it instantly? Damn. Imagine that. Nothing to doubt about it. When it will be released it's a year after Gears probably. At the end of the 2nd year of the 360. The graphics then really start to be exploited and the GPU and CPU known. Man this will be huge
Oh yeah! Its good to be a 360 owner!!!!!! :) So who plays Halo 2 here online??? What are ur guys rank? I still play sometimes but not like I used too. I kinda retired! I was a legit level 37.
All my friends on my list play Halo 2 and always send me invites I have not played Halo two ever!. I think i'll pick it up when the new maps are available.
This game will sell sh*tloads. You cant deny it. The Halo franchise is huge, and this report fires up the excitement even more.
i cant find it!!
RBlaze, no, just a report on ingame footage. I doubt any will be shown till the new trailer.
lol, thanks though. Got myself all ready for some video, lol. Back to Gears!
yah well I'm pretty mad cause I thought there was a trailer leaked and I couldn't find it. I'm pumped for the new trailer their coming out with.
Dammit, I can't get this link to work!! Anyway, this is great news, I was starting to think gears of wear was gonna look better than halo 3.
ha, i'd like to see a PS3 game that gets a news story from less than 20 seconds of footage. one word: AWESOME.
aaahhhhh...the wait is unbearable!!!!!
I don't know why but I'm not impressed at all with what I see here. I understand it's pre-alpha stage, however, I would like to see better character movement physics on master chief. The rag doll physics suck as well. I know graphically Halo 3 will look better but I'm looking forward to better physics next gen (or this gen).
Just wait a year and you will see that these graphics are gonna be amazing as well as: AI Physics Animations and much more. Finish The Fight 2007 Its coming closer.
sorry double post, stupid internet.
Can't get it to open up. 1ups site always does this, is there something wrong with my PC ?
