Some new scenes from the upcoming Xbox 360 title Halo: Reach
Reach has me excited.
Looks incredible. The graphics and gameplay are amazing.
i cant wait to use the DMR! and the board layouts look great. only one week away
So I hope they don't drag their feet while we are waiting because this will be THE game to get a 360 for. Get to opus, Bungie!
I haven't been this excited for a Halo game since the first one! Little over a week to go!
I agree, AAACE5. I am so excited for Halo Reach.
not a bad looking game at all!
Wow, good job Bungie. I don't usually play my 360, in fact it hasnt been touched since ive bought it, but things are starting to change, alan wake and now this. My 360 is gonna get some love from me this year and more hopefully in the coming years
i am really hyped for the game now .. mulitplayer will be just plain wicked... campaign well that is just on a league of its own i knw bungie will show ppl how to make a hell of a good FPS it all epicness
the game really doesn't look any different from Halo 3 to be honest. They should've just called it "Halo 3 : The New Multiplayer Maps Game (with some skins and slightly changed modes)". Not impressive at all really...at least not to someone who isn't a blind zealot to their console of choice.
Look who's talking "blind zealot". People need to gtfo 360 news if you dont give a f#ck about 360 games and just want to throw in some fanboy comments like "nothing to see here, just some rehashed exclusive again" "so many 360 fanboys here that need to take off their fanboy goggles and see how sh!t this game really is" Get a life and play your ps3 games and let other people be excited about the games they like. On Topic: This is the first Halo game im looking forward to play, the multiplayer seems to be a good reason for me to start my 360 up again after not touching it for over 4 months.
I wish the maps looked as good as the guns.
PS3 fanboys have got some serious issues!
In all seriousness why do all of the people above me who stated that they are excited about this game have more disagrees than agrees. This site has simply become a nest of fanboys where nobody can express positive feelings about a game without some idiot attacking them for it. I have all the current gen consoles and each one has different aspects that appeal to me. I just cant understand fanboyism. As for Reach it looks like it is going to be a great way for Bungie to end their work on the Halo franchise. A few new guns and even the old weapons have been tweaked. The maps actually seem to be more fun in Reach than in previous Halo games. Seems like there is more to do in each map.
I may have to go out and buy a 360 now! :)
awesome!!! i really enjoyed the Invasion Slayer one
its ok ... nothing that wow .. looks good
The armor abilities are ridiculous - they'll really change up how the battlefield plays out. Oh, all the crazy moments that will be created through this game...
As much as I love UC2 and KZ2, and as much as I agree that Halo is the most overrated franchise in the world, fact is: KZ2 720p - 30fps UC2 720p - 30fps.
These videos are much better than some of the others I've seen today. The DMR is insane and..I'll have my hands on this "deathstar" in 7 days!
Halo Reach Powerhouse Slayer Gameplay - That one looks cool. I like them all really. I'm pumped for this game!
Hope campaign will be better.
It's pretty different for sure,in fact reasonably enough that i think it will be split with some playing Halo 3 still and some on Reach.
I mean, it's all just pixels on a screen...been the same old thing since pong. games suck, right? good grief.
actually the whole Halo franchise is "nothing new". Look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Halo is basically Unreal tournament (the "double kill!" or "tripple kill!" shout out is a direct rip off) + a back story + xbox live. For some reason, the story and xbox live made all the difference....
I love the fact that you can sprint now. I know some other shooters have had it, but Halo was always so much better than most other shooters and one of the few things I wish it had that some other shooters had was sprinting. Reach's gameplay looks like FPS bliss. Just awesome.
and Mass Effect 2 are why I'm going to be getting a 360 again. I love a few PS3 games, but I love these too! I need them all :)
Yeah, man, owning both consoles is the way to go. I love it. That way you can play all the best games on either console.
agreed, the sprint ability is a great add-on.
to have both consoles if possible. some great experiences on each one
ZOMG! THE DRM PWNS SO MUCH!!!!111!!11!!
Graphics look a lot better than Halo 3, but after all that talk of on par with Killzone 2 from the 360 crowd I'd say not even close.
I agree, it doesn't look bad, but it has nothing on KZ2.
Its funny how every body who`s looking forward to this game points out the FUN stuff they are looking forward to doing when they get their hands on this...but then two detractors come in and the only negative things they can come up with is "KZ2 still has the best graphics". let me spell it out for you..we are are aware it does not look as good as kz2 and we DONT CARE!..comprende?..halo is a better MP game..and that is ALL that matters..now GTFO trolls! on topic:looking forward to using that jet pac and the new DMR in six days.im already picking my armour colour scheme in my head. Hopefully they still have my EVA helmet. gameplay seems faster, smoother than halo3 as well better responsiveness to change of direction to compensate for it. halo3 always seemed a little sluggish for me ..but then i am a fps beast on consoles! I have a rough idea of how the controls might "feel"..and if its like the impression i get from those vids then im even more exited about this game. SIX more days!
of course its not as good as KZ graphically...but then lets talk about actual game play and what makes a game re-playable....lol KZ2 has absolutely nothing on Halo. You can keep awesome graphics and a little re-playability, while I take pretty good graphics and major re-playability. That's just me.
Halo Reach is 720P at 30FPS -.-' Fanboys ...Open Zone Pls
FACT KILLZONE 2 = 1080P 60FPS 16xAA Umm, no. You need to check your "facts" before spewing them. EVERYTHING about that is wrong. It doesn not run 1080p native, it does not run at 60 fps, and does not use 16x AA. As a matter of fact, I dont even think it uses standard AA.
looks like halo3, except slightly less cartoony and with a smoother framerate, and a sprint ability, which i don't remember bein in 3...we all know it's gonna do very well, but doesn't exactly look groundbreaking...
You aren't watching very closely then. Of course it is going to look similar to Halo 3...its Halo 4. It seems that you aren't in to Halo enough to see the quite obvious differences. A lot better graphics, new weapons, completely different weapons system (load outs), 5 armor abilities (not just sprint), completely different maps, new campaign, active roster, arena...the list goes on. Every game Halo introduces something that has never been seen before. You cannot deny that. I would call that ground breaking. Edit: And this is only the Beta....
Alot of people say this. It's "cartoony". What is cartoony? Is it just the much wider and brighter color palette? The fact that there are players in "space suits"? Don't get me wrong, I like gritty and so on like gears, kz, etc. But really, I never got what was cartoony. Halo 3 always bugged me because the animation/player movement wasn't cartoony enough! COD, UC2, gears and more have player movement turn on a dime or you get the back and forth quick strafing to dodge bullets. But in Halo 3 your character was sluggish to change the direction of the character. Similar to how it is in GTA. GTA is the pinnacle of realistic player movement. The problem is it feels slow, unwieldy and annoying. But anyways, I still don't get the cartoony talk.
I've already banned the troll from the site, also deleted some of the other comments because they were off topic.
OK good to see bungie has made a effort this time. it seems they may have taken few years for them to catch up on the fact we in a next gen world. however bungie did promise you 360 fans a makeover so to speak. having gone threw the videos posted. i went and took a look at some HD multiplayer footage of halo odst as that is the latest soo far. i gota tell you there is a differnce. good differnce. but i think unfortunatly i was hoping for better engine from bungie.it seems wot they have done here is some pimping of the engine and textures with some dynamic lighting perhaps. http://meodia.com/news/1001... by going threw several videos you can see the differnces mainly the smoothness. and more sharper colors. with to me tells me they have tweaked the engine and really knuckled down. now this not all a bad thing.as i beleave this tells me they could done this visuals on odst if they put more effort into the games engine. however even thoe i beleave this good thing for reach. maybe they need to think about a new engine for the next game. but overall good work bungie comming from a past 360 gamer.
Thanks now I can go buy it.
The game basically looks the same, just that it's more faster, and yet again the same guns reappear looking different. The only thing I see that actually looks different than other games is that you can run backwards and maps look bigger for the I.P..
I disagree because it does not look the same like the other halo's it looks better from the character models, particle effects, lighting, animations all the way down to the guns. No hard feelings * Lets get NASTY!!
So, what make this game so unique from the rest?
It's Halo... The rest are all trying to be like it.
Cheers! I'm a Wii/PS3 guy myself, and not really into shooters - but I know how exciting it is to be waiting for a new game you're going to love. Have fun, o Halo players!
It has the possibility of being very interesting, but it isn't comparable to KZ2 in no possible way. The cons IMO are when players are moving by side it looks awkward, I don't know how to explain, they seem flying. And also looking at the game, it seems the players are very distant from each other (compensated by impossible zooms), I mean, it is comparable with UT. I think maps are too big for what the game needs. The pros ??? Another million seller game? For now I give a below average score.
yes rate a game you never played before that makes sense.
