Bungie showed 1UP their first glimpse of the single-player campaign mode, as well as a more detailed look at the "saved films" feature.
Was not impressed sorry.
As were alot of other gamers.
Sad, just sad.......NAT!!
I think it looked stunning! Finally time to finish this fight and it looks like its gonna go all out! Can't wait!
The environments are still the same flat un-natural designs, but with higher polygon textures.
im sure it looks great but comparing it to crysis is like comparing atari 2600 pacman to pacman championship
i don't know it just never seemed to grasp me like it has done so many others but i will say after seeing some more footage last night from the Microsoft Press Con. that Halo 3 does look very promising. I usually rent games that i'm skeptical about through gamefly first and then decide whether to purchase or not and i will say Halo 3 was in my Que at Gamefly but after last nights footage i can say it looks to be worth a buy.
I was very impressed. I'm not een a Halo fan. I think the single player looked as good as their e306 target. It looked good. The artstyle of Halo doesn't allow for Realistic metal and enviorments. It's ment to be a barren planetry adventure. I think the railer showed great physics and a solid premise. It's kinda of the preety girl that gets ignore because everyone expects her to be the prom queen.
Did anyone else think that first commercial were parts from the Halo movie that was supposedly scrapped?
I freaked for a second. It looked like a awesome blend of Aliens, with everything Halo.
If there was a Halo movie I would really cry. Especially if it looked like that. BTW if you think it looked like 80's cheesy action flick, thats kinda the art style Halo was going for. So I'd say they suceeded.
That assembly plant making the sniper rifles....f**king awesome...
There really needs to be a good sci-fi flick...
Halo will be it. After this Xmas, production will resume after FOX sees how much $$ Halo is garanteed to make.
It's like Star Wars for this gen.
If you disagree your a tard.
P.S. - I'll admit the campaign footage wasn't greatly impressive. But I buy games to play them, not to oogle at hardware specs.
KZ is shaping up to look awesome though. Gameplay will be another story.
If you liked the video you should download more of neil blonkamp(sp?) stuff its awesome
I just put my pre order in the bin
Do you actually think by saying that you are affecting the sales in any way? Like you ever had a pre-order. You've been flaming everything Halo , you are will go above and beyond to prove how ignorant you are.
Disingenuous little fan boy you fool no one.
is a Sony Dildo
I can't load the page. OH well.
I think the primary reason some people think it doesn't look so hot is the semi-cartoony art style. Which indeed makes it look different in what some consider...lesser. I don't think it's lesser just different.
But I'm a big fan of immersion and realism in games, so I'ma definitley getting a PS3 eventually.
THEN GET A PS3 AND STOP POSTING ON A HALO 3 TOPIC, IDIOT.
/dance so happy, and it will only look more pretty as time goes on!
I would still be more pumped for Halo3 than for the Killzone 2 game, trust me I am not being bias, I have just always been a really big Halo fan, I like how it plays looks and sounds, you PS3 guys get back to me and let me know what Killzone 2 is like to play, but I will not buy a £400 gaming machine for one unproven franchise.
like God of War...MGS...FF series...Kingdom Heart Series..GT series...hmm but all that aside, I'm in the same boat with you on KZ...Im not counting the eggs before they hatch.
Yeah i agree, it looks hot but who knows about the gameplay. Killzone looked good (for a ps2 game) and it sucked.
Is a must buy for Xbox 360 owners, but Personally I am really really looking forward to Killzone 2. Idk maybe all the hype is in the air lol. But 2 impressive games and I hope KZ2 and H3 are both really big successes =) cheers!
It actually does look good, although halo's gameplay is the reason I bought halo 2, so if it's similar for 3, i will be picking a 360 for sure, killzone isn't really until next yr plus gameplay is still in question though graphics are great,.....
1up actually said gears look better than killzone 2 so i hope they make it better and also add more to gameplay
both killzone 2 and halo are to dam over hype killzone only looks as good as cod4 2 me./ and halo looks ok i do think halo will be a better
game it looks to be more epic.
I am just wondering how it will all be spinned when in the end Halo 3 scores above 9.0 on average due to the overall package and Killzone 2 gets around 8.0.
Slow down the trailer ( I think they should have been on stage showing this off) and you see just how freaking gorgeous it was. And Bungie used more than the color gray.. which is nice :)
those ships look amazing, goes by fast at full speed. The K2 trailer was all gameplay of a level; H3 trailer is little clips of alot, right now its hard to compare. But to answer your ? the mulitplayer in halo, vehicles, and options(customization and saved films) will prob get the spin machine turning.
Some of the footage looked amazing, but than you'd come across a mediocre one mixed in between. But one thing is for sure that they will delay this game until it's up to par. Putting september as a launch date gets more people to "buy in" to a 360, and pushing the game to november may be worth it. Just a theory.
the biggest problem with the graphics were the block shaped debris and sharp edges to the polygons. That's easily fixable as long as you don't tax the hardware. So I expect them to push the envelope a lot more.
They make reference to "Forge" in this article...that was a level editor for bungie's marathon game. A Halo 3 Level Editor would be sweet.
regardless of how graphics stack up to the bigger budget gaming titles, i think this finale will be a memorable experience. Me, whenever this launches i'll be playing halo all day maybe even paly all three installments just for fun.
like viruse said, kz looked real good for a ps2 game and it was aweful. kz2 does look amazing and if its plays half as good as it looks and it has a somewhat interesting story, then sony might have a big hit. having said that, kz had the same promise, and we know how that turned out. H3 on the other hand, its looks great also, personally i love the style of it. i dont think halo has ever been about trying to look realistic, but having said that, h3 easily looks much much better than the other halo's.
