for the new expansion pack, Bungie is really going to impress with this I reckon. The new screenshots look killer.

WOW, i just cant help it but does that look dated or what, after the games we played since halo3 was released, gears2,r2 and a few others and after witnessing K2 its apparent halo3 is lackluster in the gfx, i know it means nothing im just saying. I was looking at the packs and pics of them and it just looked so outdated gfx wise.

I think Halo 3 still looks pretty damned good considering it runs sub 720p. The lighting system that Halo uses just makes the game pop. The textures on it are also quite remarkable. If you look up close at almost anything it looks pretty decent. The more pixels you have the less "jaggies" you will get and again it runs sub 720p, and the "jaggies" are hardly there at all. One reason for this is that the XBOX 360 does a very good job at AA (Anti-Aliasing), which makes less jaggies. The only things that I can remember that look like crap are looking at piles of trash. The words on the newspaper in them are pretty fuzzy, yet you can make them out if you have a big enough TV. I also don't think that many people would be staring at trash when there are sniper bullets and rockets flying around... My point is that Halo is not really a slouch in the graphics department. It has its times when it is not that great cough cough Campaign! Other than that this game is still great and will continue to be as long as Bungie supports it.
