A video of the Halo 3 beta has hit the interweb.
I wonder how they got this, the beta build only has Snow Bound, Vahalla and High Ground
Holy Crap! Look what they did with Zanzibar!!! That looks fantastic!
That was absolutely garbage. Was that Halo 3 or Halo 2. Oh, so that's how it's going to look at 1080p 60 FPS. Thanks but no thanks. I'd rather play Gears of War or Resistance.
it's a beta and it says it right on the freaking video. pay attention...
Sony fans can't read Boink, hell they can't even read when its on video.
beta versions are always a good indication of what the game is going to look like in its final stage. sorry to disappoint you
all these X360 haters and all the big Halo fans need to stop crying.
wait until the final product and then have a final judgement
Yeah. Let's wait and see instead of passing judgement already.
I dont believe it!
that was god awfuLL... At least I ws Hopeing for mORE
And I am non Biast!
If you have to say your non-biased then you probably are
Oh Ru, give it a chance at least. I bet the beta next month will look better and the final will look better than that. It may seem like H3 is to close to end to get polish but when it comes to graphics adding one thing can add a lot. Just wait n' see and if i'm wrong you can point and laugh at me, i promise.
Can you imagine Halo 3 being a dissapointment in terms of graphics?
Oh my god. That would kill the 360.
Gameplay > Graphics
and it's a beta.
halo 2.. right?
Seriously This vid jsut gave me hope graphics wise, that video rocked.
I especially love the new version of Zanzibar... Last Resort.
have anybody seen the video when they compared halo 3 alpha to halo2 alpha and they also showed halo2 beta...was not good in terms of graphixs
i think these graphixs are really good =)how was this god awfull??? it seemed to run more smoother than the alpha with better graphix
I think it looks pretty good and seems to have massive levels! One thing I like about Halo is the single player and in this game the multiplayer has that single player feeling which goes beyond anything I've ever played or seen! Now if the multiplayer looks this good being it's only a beta just imagine the single player! People hate all you want because nobody care's and this game will sell millions of copies no matter what you say so just hop on the wagon enjoy this game rather than criticize it this early!
So far it just looks like a higher res, better color version of Halo 2, otherwise, it looks the same. and what's with that framerate and speed!? Anyways, i'll save final judgement for when its done, but thus far, i am not impressed, wonder how the sinlge player looks though? sure to look better, but i have yet to see anything
Why comment then? Are you turning into a non gamer Dante.This game will rock and that is for sure.A quick note before I bounce out of here, well done to THAMMER for an earlier post he made (those comments are what gaming is all about)nice one.
It runs smother, the environments look larger, the game overall looks alot smoother than the Alpha, I cannot wait to see this game on my TV.
That looked... very, very dull. I can understand the graphics, it is an early build, but the gameplay look extreamly basic. It wasn't fast-paced and fun like Unreal, wasn't tactical like Counter-strike, wasn't explosive and in your face like Gears and it wasn't an overly exciting map. I never saw what the fuss was about with the first two (Halo 1 was fun, but nothing near the hype it got), but this just furthur reduces my faith in a very generic series.
Let's wait for the fanboy defense now...
Whatever dude!...I don't want a fast paced game like unreal which is like you just said unreal which isn't fun at all in my opinion! Halo gameplay is Halo gameplay and people like you once again just won't ever get it! Counter strike and Gears are two great games but sadly not on par with Halo!
You do realize you just based that off 1 min of gamplay starting from the first spawn when nobody knows were anybody is yet or before some one can set up. Halo 2 is based around fast gamplay and tactics, but you odviously dont know that or havent played halo 2 for more than a hour so dont make dumb comments that are out of your element
but ... if the graphics do not raise the bar significantly from Halo 2, I think its a loss for Microsoft. Most people on this site have only seen videos but I'll reserve judgement until after they release the game. What I DO NOT want is Halo 2 with slightly better graphics because this will forever be called Halo 2.5, guaranteed.
wow people it's not a final ver. there. I bet the beta next month looks even better. The remodel of the map looks great i think, seems like more close combat is going to be instore for that map. The only concern i have is the players speed, i was hoping a Halo 1 type speed but instead it looks like they're moving at about the speed of halo 2.
No PS3 fan will give it any praise to begin with so who cares what you think. lol
#17.1 Moron do you see any mention of the PS3 console in my post!. I was talking about haters talking sh*t!, you know!, the ones with avatars with anti MS pictures in them!. Stay off my nuts you stalker god dam!. Your skewed logic only makes things worse Example is you reply.
Is somebody saying something down there?. If you're a fan of another console and is not bashing the game with foolish rabid spitful attacks; then i guess no one's talking to you ass!. lol.
dragging the PS3 into a totally unrelated discussion.
Anyway, while that video didn't look all that impressive, it probably is too early to tell. Guess we'll wait and see.
and I love this game. What were you saying again?
you're as clean as that white tissue paper which bill gates used to clean his ass. pathetic!
Damn Halo 3 is gonna be awesome, i loved zanzibar and its making a return to Halo 3 :D thank you Bungie :P
Why wait for the Alpha or Beta of this game when i can play the same thing right now in Halo 2? Graphics look the same and Gameplay looks the same. There is no difference except for the shield. What a ripoff. If this is how it looks now, then how in the world are they going to get it to compete with the likes of Gears of War and Reistance by this fall. The simple truth is that it won't be able to.
Halo 2 didn't become the fastest selling game for nothing, it will beat Gears and R:FOM, no questions asked.
Halo's console gameplay to this day is unmatched, and it became a success not for graphics, but for:
Halo 3 will have all of that and much more.
Nothing better. You would think they would have upgraded it by now.
I don't get how people can make a judgement based upon a video of this quality. To me there isn't really much of a way that they can improve at points as the resolution is too poor to see any details. I completely agree with you.
and that remake looked awesome.
people confuse me. the people who dont even know that the graphics will look better are the people who talk like they know the most. and the people who say the gameplay doesnt look that much better than halo 2 havent realized that if you are making another sequal to the biggest game in the world, you shouldnt change it too much. there's more people playing a 3 year old game with halo 2 than there people playing ANY game on ps2 or ps3. so why change it too much? just make better levels, more guns, more game variants, and little things like that and you keep a good thing going. look at how many people still play the old counter strike? you dont have to give a game a completely new look to improve on it
So why not change it up again to make Halo 3 play like a new game?
Don't worry the game will look AMAZING,patience my friends,patience.
its only beta, but i thought the alpha build looked better than that.. but w/e
but it still seems you run slow as sh!t and jump uber high :-( i hope they'll fix this when it comes out
Its just a beta. They still have months to finalize it. I'm actually looking forward to playing that map. 1 Flag CTF will be completely different on there with that side door.
The point of this rough build of Halo 3 multi player beta isnt to dazzle PS3 fanboys. lol Can't wait to see how much better Forza 2, Mass effect and Halo3 will look after all the graphical touches are added Sony fanatics also said Forza will always look like st8t, Sony fanboys are never right, not! EVER!; thats for sure!.
Yah! yah! yah! you two below me got something to say. lol
Sony fans are coming in here to spite Halo3 despite at least some of them being smart enough to know Halo's like a new house with its sheet rock being hung.
I would hope not!
Plus, we're not talking just graphics here, even the gameplay (the little that was actually in that video) wasn't all that great. But again, we'll have to wait and see.
to what extent are the graphical touches? Are they going to add additional texture layers, make Master Cheif's helmet shinier, make more particle effects when a gun is being shot? When is MS the only company that works on gameplay and then adds polish? I also agree that a rough multi player beta build isn't to dazzle PS3 fanboys but this hasn't anything to do with Sony fanboys.
I'm glad that they are doing these betas because you will see a good amount of feedback regarding the game's graphics, despite the gameplay being solid. I guess most people have been spoiled by Gears of War (despite all its bugs). This is only a good thing for Bungie.
people will disagree with your point but not provide feedback. If you are going to disagree, state your reason ;)
I've noticed that if you make a rational statement that moderately disagrees with others, you get your bubbles lost. F the bubbles! Just give me your argument.
You can tell when the guy is walking the shadow are all smudge. It's just a beta/we will see next month. Here is Forza 2 comparison. Work on game play first then move on to graphics.
Forza 2 on 3/9/07
Forza 2 on 4/21/07
I love when people talk like they work for Microsoft.
"ohh shut up guys Microsoft does this...then they do that. They are never wrong. I love them sooo much."
lol Amazing. Anyways granted its beta. But Beta can look good too.
And I hear you guys on gameplay but lets be dammn honest here for a second. Halo 3 has to look good. It just has too. They cant release a game called "Halo 3" that is not as visually stunning as it is to play. Your in a new era. Graphics matter alot more than they did back in the 8 bit days. This game cant look like something you saw on Xbox1. But you sure as hell cant tell that from some crappy you tube video. I need to see this in HD before passing judgement.
i wanted this game to convince me to buy a 360 over a ps3 but it hasn't. i am really disappointed, if i get a 360 i will probably buy froza 2 and maybe bioshock cause i played most 360 games at my neighbors house and if you don't have online the games really are short, except for dead rising and oblivion.
guys ease up on the graphics... please take into account the quality of the video...
Alpha - Mediocre looking = more of a shock come launch
PLEASE, DON'T BE SO CLOSEMINDED
release H2 looking video, let fools make fools of themselves then release final version. Go back copy and paste fools comments and make fun of fool for being a fool.
Remember that little video a few weeks ago that showed the premiere of the shield "post" (well it kinda looks like a post now) and the prox. mine. Bungie said that the graphics were far from complete even in the upcoming beta. Why on earth would you put all this time into graphics when it's the gameplay that makes the game. Get gameplay complete then work on your graphics.
every time there a video or a screenshot of halo 3 its "it looks [email protected]
a PS3 games comes out and PS3 fanboys are quick to excuse it by saying that developers need more time to unleash the power of the cell.
But then... when a youtube leaked video of a 360 beta game which happens to be recorded with a porno web cam (low quality) then we have these misserable fanboys going nutz over it. and taking the video as proof that the game sucks... wow... that's it's why flaming PS3 articles can be concidered poetic justice.
dude don't try and turn this into a flame war.. you have hard core 360 players calling craps on the graphics on this game. Why must you always turn it into a fanboy war. Call a spade a spade.. the graphics aren't up to par.. considering what is possible with gears. I for one never think that halo had the best graphics.. like GTA.. its about gameplay, thats what makes halo what it is.. an awesome online multiplayer game.. but please man, be on topic and don't contribute to the flame war.
i cant wait for the beta. Its only a few weeks away. Its only a beta and yet it still has more to offer than any PS3 game.
the latest LAIR videos for ps3 looks great.even in youtube quality.motorstorm looks great.even on youtube.that just looked average.course no one was shooting really.it was pretty much a walk through of multiplayer but i wasn't seeing gears of war level of graphics.not that it's about graphics.
but we know the game will sell truckloads because even halo2 is still the number one xbox live game.so will looks matter?probally not.even liking ps3,i can see that.even as a manager of a game store,i had 117 people outside my store at midnight.
i just wonder how supposedly a video would get let loose on the net?iv'e seen security at some of these places and you can't even have cameras or cellphones on during work in some areas.
it smells of early hype.
you must be blind fanboy to say that, i mean why start now the rest of the fanboys will list games and argue...
Fanboys go away, just go and look at the E3'06 Halo 3 trailer which was real time, that is what the game should look like when it comes this fall. I just don't know why i need to repeat myself over and over again. Haters, if you don't like the game then get the hell out of here, this is for people who like Halo and for people who are intersted in buying Halo 3 and the Xbox 360.
Alpha, Beta etc, all games won't look as good as the final version. If i have to say that again to another hater or fanboy then i will go nuts, i swear some people are just either really dumb or being plain annoying or maybe both.
i sense some really long lists coming our way.
Looks loverly. And you guys are morons. Every single news article or video about Halo or something, it always ends up being a stupid Fanboy War. Why do you even respond? Are you getting paid buy MS/Sony/Nintendo to defend them in these pointless arguments? You buy the console, buy the games. End of transaction. If someone says something incorrect, like about the graphics in the beta, you can prove them wrong, but that's it. Try not to make yourself a minion of MS, Sony or Nintendo. cya.
Ok the only people here who are thinking rationally on this are the ones that have pointed out the obvious--Youtube video quality. I have a pretty decent feeling that if we were seeing this at 720P (or 1080P as rumor would suggest) that this would look amazing. Someone who mentioned the alpha H3 and Beta H2 comparison vids has a really good point.
I actually can tell even through the crappy video quality that some things have definitely improved, the particle effects of explosions for one, another is the overall texturing, and the biggest thing is just how much more vast the environments seem. Lets not rush to judgement and wait for something thats actually high quality footage before condemning this UNFINISHED game.
Anyone who has actually played Halo 2 would know better than to say that looks like Halo 2.
Exactly right, Drew
Anyone know if it's up in Hd yet?
Don't know, I'll check around and post it if I find any. I kind of doubt it though, as this is leaked video...
WHAT DA FUK!!!
The video is no longer up!!!
shoot i never got a chance to see it....oh well.
pretty sure you'd say something like this...
"What crappy graphics, this game blows"
"Halo sucks balls, it's so overrated"
You're Gates, go to Bungie and demand to play $_$
