Over at the Ascendant Justice forums, a dedicated member took the time to take some screenshots of Halo 2, and compare them with screenshots from the Halo 3 Beta leak. Thirteen previously unseen shots after the jump.
Here's a full list of all the screens:

All taken by me, uncompressed, and straight from the source. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about them. Halo 3 screenshots are courtesy of NeoGAF.
and water looks good too.
Impressive work, Drew!
No doubt the Beta looks better than the already finished Halo 2 but what gets me is all the Sony fans making a big deal out of it its understandable for exicted Halo/360 fans to compare progress but bashing a Beta with nothing but place holders in it so fans and devs can do gameplay test has me thinking it just isn't worth posting these comparison pics. Oh! well!.
Some of the pictures look fantastic for Halo 3. Halo 2 reminds me of that like James Bond N64 look. Halo 3 has that real life feel. Just watch come October when we see new screens we're "going to sh*t our pants" lol
i cant tell which is which, halo3 looks bad period, they beter show us some real pics.
i dont see the point in doing that... last will alwas look more bad that then next so why even compare them...?
lol @ the resolution these pics were taken at
and from a map that's a little more polished. Then, I think we'll get a better picture of what to expect.
Have no doubt, Halo 3 is going to be a graphical showcase. When 1 and 2 first came out, they blew everything else out of the water. Halo 3 will be no different.
I think this comparison is the last time people will be able to belittle this game. Halo is the reason we have a 360; it's Microsoft's flagship title; and make no mistake, it will be a formidable, boundary-pushing, graphics powerhouse.
So fanboys, enjoy it while you can.
Halo 3 beta is 2x better than halo 2.
So halo 3 will be 10x better than gears of war :)
in people keep posting thes comparisons, its just asking for trouble EVERY SINGLE TIME
