What would make Halo Reach a perfect game

Bungie should not rush Halo: Reach. They should take their time, and listen to the community to make Halo: Reach the best game they have ever made. (Halo: Reach, Xbox 360)

Better animation, physics, 60fps and 1080p native. I swear if they could do all that i'd buy a 360. Until then i'll play all that on my beastly ps3, wipeout HD anyone?
shocky16  +   2386d ago
Sorry to burst you bubble but Wipeout doesn't even run at a constant 1080p resolution, it changes throughout races.
jahcure  +   2386d ago
@ shocky16
and let me guess, you see it when it changes too don't you?
Pennywise  +   2386d ago
Jahcure, he saw it with his own four eyes.
Mo0eY  +   2386d ago
Actually, he is right. It changes, BUT it's lowest resolution goes to 1080i. It only does this to keep the frames per second above 60 to keep the smoothest gameplay possible. So a slap in the face to you, Mr. shocky16, because the PS3 amazes with its technology.

this is bungie's chance to prove that they can top halo 1 since it's using an all new engine and hope it give us an amazing new experience all over again like halo 1

bungie do your best

Seriously if you have any good suggestions for Halo Reach make your way to The forums are always busy and full of great ideas so just post a quick message and see what the fans think.
My list:
Dont lose what makes halo great, so dont fill it with long animation cycles or button bashing moments. So no cover systems or chainsaw battles or anything that slows the pace of the game.
Bring to life the epic feel that is the "Fall of Reach" book
Improve the graphics now as Halo 3 is becoming dated
The online in my opinion couldnt get much better. Bungie still support it with monthly playlist updates and double exp weekends every weekend.

Honestly just keep it feeling like Halo. Dont try and be Gears of war or killzone. Halo is one of the few games left that doesnt focus filling the game with long overdrawn animations.
JOLLY1  +   2386d ago
I just hope they don't have some stupid leveling up system...
I don't like how these new fps's have upgrades for people that have been there longer. I like the simplicity of being on the exact same playing field.
cemelc  +   2386d ago
So your saying don't do anything and update graphics? why don't play halo 3 then???

If you want to make a new halo you have to make it better, thats the basic of a sequel.

You have to give ideas, don't do anything cos it wont feel halo is not an idea.
SaberEdge  +   2386d ago
Improving the graphics is obviously one thing, since despite what some people say, great graphics really help immerse you in the game and make it a richer experience. They do need to keep most of what make Halo unique, but they also need to make it a fresh experience. We already have Halo 3 and soon Halo 3 ODST, so Reach needs to bring something fresh.
Hoolock  +   2386d ago
Oh by all means add weapons produce a new story and add new equipment but dont change the basic mechanics of what makes Halo, Halo. If i wanted large amounts of camera shake or a character that felt human id play COD. If i wished to spend time using a cover system id play gears of war. I want Bungie to develop Halo not to overhaul it to become a COD.

In terms of new features
A class system would be great IMO
More objective based game types that last longer
Give meaning to objectives, rather than just heres a point capture it. Give my team a bonus for doing so since this game may likely take an approach to online that resembles warfare rather than just a fun deathmatch.
Add some of the vehicles from Halo Wars, they would be cool
The Halo arsenal is already rather large but new weapons would never go a miss.
Obviously weapons specific to a class would be a given if a class based system was in place.

I do agree my comment did little to inspire ideas but im sure bungie will produce a great game without my help :)

They need to remove gadgets for sure

They need to fix the biggest thing wrong with halo 3 which was their crappy maps. Halo 2 and Halo 1 had great maps. Halo 3 had terrible maps (DLC maps were alright)

Have a big selection of halo 1-3 maps in multiplayer

Get rid of halo 3's meleee system. (worst melee system I have ever seen in multiplayer)

Go back to halo 2 ranks in multiplayer

a_squirrel  +   2386d ago
Also, fix the matchmaking

*waiting for 5 mins for more players*
*automaticly leaves the game and looks for another*

and the searches! All I want to play is 16 player infection! on a map like HighGround
xGrunty  +   2386d ago
They need to bring back Halo 2's game play. It was so much more fluid than Halo 3.

We all want that cancel button again too.

What would make Halo a better game
Get a Story for game
Longer Campain
Better Graphics
Better Animation
Better Physics
Make protagonist not so horrible as MC
Change Art Direction
Remove Run and Gunning
Remove Bunny hop
Don't use Natal
Improve the spray and pray bunny hopping online so it actually takes skill to rack up kills.

Cenobia  +   2386d ago
I can't tell if owned is a genuine troll or is simply trying to be a sarcastic generalization of trolls. His comments are just so uninspired.

Anyway, I think I'd prefer a class based Halo, or COD4-like weapons load out Halo (I haven't played 3 tho). Same for Warhawk. I really hate running around looking for weapons just to lose it all in one millisecond, or get camped on. I really don't like it when games do that (I didn't mind it so much in the air playing Warhawk, but hated it on the ground).
a_squirrel  +   2386d ago
I said I HOPE the ps3 will get halo reach before and got 10 disagrees, and no agrees. So it's not that surprising.

'Adds mod support to the list'

To make this game awesome, you gotta make it easy to mod/customize awesome things. like to have vehicles constantly spawning 30 feet above players. It gets rid of campers. :)

lol @Owned
nooo, you can't handle halo :P

Mod tools already exist, Forge, and all the custom options allow you to do pretty much anything.

Go try a 8 man FFA on Sandtrap where everyone only has Swords and Hammers they run at 300% speed and there is also no gravity.

The most fun you'll ever have!
cpuchess  +   2386d ago
Add Bots like Gears 2 did so players can play offline

Release the game with a large collection of maps instead of downloading map packs every 6 months.

Make sure it doesn't feel like we are playing Halo 2 again like Halo 3 did

Don't prevent players from climbing up on things to get better shots
a_squirrel  +   2386d ago
bots are fun (killzone 1)

and add in a 'warthog launch' gametype, where you throw one grenade on to a pile of grenades, somewhere under a warthog, and launch it like the medieval days :P
iHeretic  +   2386d ago
Why always big maps?
I prefer small maps instead, like everyone else that is a good Halo player or a fan of MLG. Big maps are good sometimes, and I would love a remake of Blood Gulch, but I would prefer moore smaller maps lik The Pit, Construct, Guardian, and so on.
a_squirrel  +   2386d ago
How about, upping the graphics to EVERY single level they've ever made, and not changing ANYTHING else (lockout=good/ \blackout = not fun)
Omega4  +   2386d ago
This could be Bungie's last Halo game they WILL put everything they can to make it the best game ever

a_squirrel  +   2386d ago
WTF, I went to disagree to the guy below, and it disagreed to the clown, then it didn't and the guy below got disagree?

Before they added forge and theatre
Then they add Firefight
Then they add a mod tool right in the game? That would be cool

'I'm going to make a plasma grenade that actually doesn't damage anything but creates 10x the blast force :D'

Mooey, you could have saved yourself all that typing, and just put "no ps3", and BAM! perfect game.
mrv321  +   2386d ago
Does it have hookers and blow? No. Thus not a perfect game.

Will no doubt be fun, very fun fun even but perfect... I doubt it.

I was actually reading that thread on for hours. There are SO MANY brilliant ideas there you can just visualize how the game would turn out if Bungie took them all in.
So much potential
timmyrulz  +   2386d ago
interesting, all of these people with their tips on how to make halo better yet the last installmentis sitting at the top of the fps metacritic list, is the most played online console game and is the highest selling fps exclusive, the only thing that needs to be improved are the graphics, length of the game and bigger battles in my opinion
kissmeimgreek  +   2386d ago
my perfect halo
here are the two things that would make the next halo game the best.

-squad based. havent read the book so dont know if this would make sense with story but i think it would be really cool to see what four spartans could do together.

- a better story. the first time I beat halo 3 i thought it was the greatest conclusions to a great story. i played it again and realized how average the story really is (atleast it had amazing gameplay though). i dont think this will be to hard since, from what i hear, the reach book has a pretty good story.

- an edgier look. halo always had environments that looked so peaceful yet full of enemies. throw in mangled corpses vehicles on fire, hurt civilians begging for you to kill them. i know it might seem a litle extreme but id love to see bungie push that M rating (i still dont see how H3 got an M rating it always seemed so T)

thats just my opinion so say what you think.
BlackIceJoe  +   2386d ago
I agree with lots of this. I want to see a long campaign. Because story modes are my favorite part in games and Reach has a great story to be told. I also want long cut-screens. Halo Wars had great cut-screens but they were to short. If I had to pick with either seeing more cut-screens or less ones. But because we get less ones they can be longer I would go with the longer ones.

More vehicles Halo Wars had some neat ones and getting to use those in the story mode and multiplayer would be great fun.

That being said Reach should be epic. There is so much story and I look forward to being able to see it all take place.

There is no perfect game
No way you can make a perfect game. In order to do that, you'd need to please everybody. And that is impossible.

The future of Halo (Insider information)
I know your going to be more excited about this than I am. We (Lionhead Studios) are working closely with bungie to implement natal into the Halo universe by making a troop morale system where if you smile throughout the whole game your squad reacts to your positive nature inspiring them to fight harder but if your confidence starts to shudder they will see this through natal and there actions will become sluggish and slow meaning you will lose.
Hoolock  +   2386d ago
Although your comment is a joke i would like to shout at my marines to make them fight harder rather than have them stand there like fools. I dunno there is something in me that always feels like i could do with shouting at the AI and even encouraging them to fight harder. Seriously though Natal is the start of somthing different in gaming and im glad to see it if done right.

The sad thing is that mooey is going to complain in a different thread about Xbox gamers always trolling PS3 threads. Disagree? Prove me wrong.

I hope it's perfect it's my most inticipated game since halo 2:)
