A new gameplay picture has just surfaced that internet of third map in the Mythic Map pack, Sandbox. It looks very interesting up close.
Wow Halo looks so outdated now compared to Killzone, Gears and COD
thats probably because it is, halo 3 is really a stepping stone to what this gen has turned into although halo 3 still has one of the best lighting systems, it just doesn't have the geometry in the landscapes to show it off outside of the campaign
The gameplay is still there, though, and that's what counts.
How did this get approved with such a huge spelling mistake in the title? Wtf is "Sanbox" I am aware that the mistake will probably be fixed soon, but my comment will remain :)
I don't think that particular screenshot is representative for what Halo 3 looks like. These are better I think. http://screenshots.teamxbox... http://screenshots.teamxbox... http://screenshots.teamxbox... It's nowhere near Killzone 2 or Gears 2, but the graphics are certainly acceptable. Like reapersson said, it's all in the gameplay. Currently trying to get past wave 39 in Gears 2 Horde mode. So addictive...
If you ever just walk around and look at certain objects it actually looks pretty damn good. It's obviously not a Gears or Kz2 looking game but gameplay blows away Gears and I would bet KZ2 as well.
no chance in hell.....
Graphics have come a loooooong way in 18 months huh.
Actually BioShock was released a month before Halo 3 and it looked miles better. The only thing good about Halo 3's graphics were the lightening. Otherwise the textures and other than Master Chief's character model every one else looked dated. The gameplay was there and it was an absolute blast to play, but then again there wasn't anything that was changed from Halo 2 to Halo 3. It was the same game in terms of gameplay with some minor tweaks. Multiplayer is where Halo 3 shines and I don't play online that much so I guess i just missed the best bit.
Now thats what you call Awesomeness.
When are fanboys going to learn that gameplay is more important then graphics? If i want graphics i have Crysis ... if i want gameplay i have COD4, BF2, Halo 3, CS. Out of those games which you think is being played more nowadays? Is it Crysis or COD4, BF2, Halo 3, CS?
For example, the volumetric smoke and dust in Killzone 2 can be used as dynamic cover (that's also affected by the wind).
hmm reckon this is fake tbh. i know halo 3 is a bit dated now but it certainly doesn't look this bad, although i guess it's a work in progress and all the detail will be added later (see the kz intreviews where they talk about adding in the various details/ lighting effects) The problem with halo:ODST is that yes the gameplay is still there (which is the reason ppl buy halo) but the graphics cant improve much, if at all due to the fact that the new multi-player maps will also be playable withint halo 3 also lelo i understand your point, gameplay is more improtant than graphics, always will be. its just now adays the standard is high. and also it's not like cod4 is a bad looking game, infact its had praise as being 1 of the best. Even if the gameplay is good i'd still expect to see them up the graphics tbh. just looks half arsed when you compare to what else is on the market
I'm not trying to start a console war or anything, but these graphics look so outdated compared to those of killzone 2's. I guess were all gonna have to get used to saying that.
