See the real difference in Halo 2 and the upcoming Halo 3. By comparing early builds of Halo 2 against recent footage of Halo 3, you can truly see how far Halo has come and just how far it will go.
Nice. Good music too...made it feel epic
I realy like the halo 2 dirt textures, they should have kept that :)
The Pre-Alpha in Halo 2 that DIRT room was awesome.
Hehe good old Bungie
So this will shut all Sony fanboys up that said the Halo 3 alpha build looked bad. That's what Alpha stuff is. You see Halo 2 alpha didn't look anywhere near the final version.
Thus, Halo 3 Alpha already looking this good... Imagine what'll be when it launches. INSANE
It will say... Gears of what?! Like they told us. Damn. I'm prepared to finish the fight!
Shish do people here have short term memory loss or something? It's Gears of War, happens to other games too like GTAIV to name an example. People it's written on the side for God of Gamings sake ;)
Well your sitting fantasising about this footage i will be showing my gf sexy time while playing my PS3 haha!
mart is a gaymer he does not like girls
OMG there is a good mart!? lol silly Sonyfanboy! haha!
the funny thing is, when the mart actually starts arguing with someone on here he is the only one to prove stuff with links etc while everyone else just writes things which in the end are proven wrong by TheMart lol
you got some fanchicks. lol it's quite funny and sad at the same time.
You can't really compare two games made in the different generations... Different games will be developed differently. Sure, Halo 2 made a lot of improvement, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Halo 3 will.
How game development works.
"Sure, Halo 2 made a lot of improvement, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Halo 3 will."
You're funny dude.
IT WILL. That's how it works with alpha/beta in the end to final. It just shows that on the same level of builds, Halo 3 is a giant jump in terms of graphics, gameplay, physics etc. already.
Halo 3 will rock, it will sell many 360's next Christmas
They are sitting around right now figuring out how to waste time. Next time you have a thought, let it go.
Bubbles for you, excellent comment. Had to definetly laugh at that one
Anybody who think Halo 3 will end up looking crappy is insane.
We're talking about the primetime baby of the Richest company in the world. This game will pretty much determine this videogame generations ultimate fate.
lol thats funny.
Dude Microsoft is pretty rich. Its not that funny
You right! the 360 is much more powerful and way more advanced in hardware and Dev tools, wait a minute i guess you not so right after all.
Now I gotta learn guitar :(
an outline to a finished book. No matter how much better at typing or writing you get the difference between your outline and finished paper will always have to same quality jump.
alpha or not, it still looks good. the solo campaign footage is what i'm waiting for, that should look even better.
HALO 3 WILL ROCK, oops i mean sink like a rock!!!
Ud what are you jealous?
too much hype surrounding this game :O
jealous of what? They have yet to show anything convincing in the graphic department. The alpha looks "ok", if you think it looks incredible you are blind into fanboyism
Edit : lol why do you guys always have to relate to sony
Alpha looks good. The first trailer looks amazing and that's what their engine can run. They don't create the hype, if they wanted to do that they would release a CGI trailer and say it was in-game :o!
Not much difference..
Is right all this Halo 3 talk is based on what the Multi player looks like which in most games do not look as good compared to the story mode.
Anti MS folk are coming out of the woodwork more and more these days i wonder if its because Sonys in trouble?.
Halo 3 is coming theres nothing anti MS fanboys can do about it.
#12/UD, its not suppose to look incredible. lol
#13 Yah! i cant tell the difference between Ninja gaiden Black and Sigma. lol.
nice video.. =)
but well, halo3 alpha looks like halo2. =)
hope this is a good thing. :)
Well Halo 2 Alpha looked worse then Halo 1.
So in that case, yeah if Halo 3 alpha already looks better then Halo 2 final, Halo 3 final will be insane
Halo 3 will be the biggest selling game this Next Generation
Halo 3 will sweep award shows for its graphics/gameplay/online/ect.. ..Game of the Year....
Halo 3 will be soley responsible for selling an additional 3 million 360's in the period of its release.
By the end of 2007 the install base for the 360 will reach 18 million consoles sold minimal.
It will average in the mid to high 9's on gaming review sites.
And Halo Haters will continue to bash it though they secretly want to play it and be a part of its large community of gamers.
Xbox live will hit a staggering 8 million subscribers by the end of 2007.
They hype for Halo 3 will be larger than life and surpass console launches. And that pisses sony fanboys off. Jump In. Its really all its hyped up to be. Stop missing out on the gaming experience of our decade. Be a "Gamer" not a "Hater".
You should be writing and giving predictions for the Enquier..
Anyone got a time machine that goes into the future to like November of 2007?
Halo 3 will not sink like a rock. Sony imitates Microsoft, not the other way around.
I can't wait until Halo 3 takes on Killzone 2 head to head. The hype around these two titles is reaching insane levels and I am guessing that which one wins will likely result in a happier Xmas for their respective platform.
I am glad the net is not being plastered with leaked images comparing the two as I would like this battle to go down to the wire. If the PS3 is everything its claimed to be then it should destroy the 360 from a graphic and AI standpoint. However, if like the original Killzone the PS3 has been over hyped then I'm afraid Halo 3 will release the knockout blow all 360 owners have been waiting for. Mind you, if both are similar then 360 should also win as how can you justify the extra expense of a PS3 if it offers little advantage in the gaming stakes...these are however both GAMING consoles.
Given the huge following Halo already has I would say that Microsoft is slightly ahead in this battle thus far, however lets wait until the games are released before the final 10 count is given!!!
Hmm false hope, I still don't get the "hype" for Killzone they haven't shown anything since 2005 and it was a CGI movie not even representing any actual in-game elements. Not to say it cant be good but that's like me saying Too human 2 is going to be insane and is really hyped. But I can't that would be idiotic because I know nothing about it, just like Killzone, we know nothing about it. The only few games that are allowed that hype are games like Forza, FF, GTA, GT, Halo, and god of war. I also allowed Gears of War just because the previews for a year and a half were insanely good. Anyways I allow those games to get the hype because their proven. The only thing that Killzone 1 proved was that it sucked ass
A good comparison video.
Look at the Halo 2 Alpha, and look at final game. Absolutely NO comparison.
This also shows how much better the Alpha looks than Halo 2. If this video was in HD, the difference would only be more profound.
Halo 2 was arguably the best graphical achievement of last generation and it's ALPHA had literally no textures. ALPHAS are to test coding and make sure the basis of the game works, while BETAS weed any problems out from there. Now if Halo 3's BETA looks like this, then wow, Gears finally has some competition in the Graphics Department.
god damn bungie theyre playing halo 3 right now. all u haters out there that say say halo 3 doesnt look good: its the alpha build and it has time to come out second i could give a damn if it was good lookin or not as long it was fun as hell like halo and halo 2. plus knowing bungie it will probably be very good looking to say the least.
ps those shield grenades look sweet as hell.
Saw this and had to share it with you guys - awesome vid, great music, epic potential.
Indeed. We need more people like you around here.
Good comparison vid. Yeah, the haters can ramble on cose' they hear it coming, and they're affraid.
You'RE still in here letting people know how much you hate Halo; your comment about saying; you just can't tell the difference says it all. move along!. oR EXPLAIN! AND POINT OUT WHAT LOOKS THE SAME!... SEGMENT BY SEGMENT... SO WE CAN HAVE A DEBATE ABOUT IT.
Did somebody step in some doo doo cus dem flies are everwhere, 360 line-up aparently isn't a stronng enough BUG killer.
u asking for positive feed back or wat? lame way to ask. jk lol
+bubble for u good find
Hey guys, my name is Adam K and am the creator of this movie. Thanks so much for your support, it really means a lot.
I run the Halo Channel at Machinima.com, we are a small site right now and trying to grow and are always looking for new community members to help out in the forums and blog. If you want to help out email me at:
or just check out our channel over here:
I know it doesn't look great right now, but we are working really hard on a whole new site and it be awesome to have you guys help us out, thanks again!
Ok so now I am sold even though I knew beforehand that the Alpha looked really good for how early in the build it was. But seeing the Halo 2 alpha sold me, that alpha looked horrific, lol it was funny to see actually, the ground said dirt, the sides of mountains were flat non textured and just brown. The rock he kicked looked like a beach ball. I now know Halo 3 is going to look insanely good, they have known about the 360's final dev numbers for years now, they are going to know how to exploit every nook and cranny out of that machine that they possibly can. Oh and crazy thing, GTA4 has been in development now for already 3 years, it's a four year project, that's crazy.
I can't wait to run a warthog through some jackals damn it and stick a plasma grenade on the back of a sniper in multi.
definitley makes me feel better knowing the alpha looked like garbage.
GOOD JOB MS FOR MAKING A GREAT GAME FOR XBOX360! NOW FIX THE RED RING PROBLEM 2 MAKE EVERY HAPPY!
I'm debating on whether to get into the Beta or not. Though it'd be nice to play the game as soon as possible, I think I'll hold off until the retail version. That way I'll get the full effect in November of brand new, unbelievably smooth, refined, Halo 3 goodness.
Go and play the beta! Rent out Crackdown and give it at least a couple of days.
The way I'm looking it at is that we will get a chance to play Halo 3 MP earlier, but with an earlier build, so when the final game comes out, you'll be noticing all the work that's gone in from the Beta to the Final product, therefore making you appriciate the game even more!
Plus, you will hopefully (if Bungie listen), be able to shape the way the Halo 3 MP will play if Bungie listen to the communities feedback!
Halo 3 is going to be sooooooooooo awesome.
OFW clan will kill ya all
Wow you know how to take a break. Where you been BRo? Halo 3 will be worth the it. Only the haters and people that sucK say anything else.
I would like to see Halo use a little more physics besides just rag doll, and some destructable environments. Some of the environments still retain the square boxey feel, everything is so straight edge, I'd swear the devs hated curves. Gameplay wise the only thing I hope is that they don't pull a (Halo 2 or MGS2), and switch the main character mid-game again, I know it's part of the story line, but I just didn't enjoy playing the Arbiter. Other than that I'm sure it will be a very solid game, since I don't have an XBox360, I'll be looking forward to this game on PC a year or two down the road.
