Looks awesome, I was waiting to see a whole match, getting sick of those 30 second teasers from IGN.

Those graphics are about 20x more impressive than the outdoor graphics. The reflections looks really cool.
DelbertGrady  +   1480d ago
And this is in multiplayer where the graphics are scaled down in order to make it run smooth. Imagine how good sp looks :)

One thing that's amazing in both Halo CE and Halo 3 is that if you zoom in on the grass, a tree or some other texture it never gets pixelated. They do some Bungie magic with the texture layers. Amazing stuff.

Well, I'd assume tighter spaces mean better 'graphics' (in quotations cause the word graphics doesn't really mean much).

Awesome I really liked the map I would like a Blackout/Lockout remake
wwm0nkey  +   1480d ago
They do have one. Check the forge World vidoc, its one of the maps that ships with forge world.
SixZeroFour  +   1480d ago
yea, really close to the end of the trailer, they had 5 remakes i believe in that forge world video...i made a comment a long while back with which map and the time you could see the remakes

edit - it was actually only 4
ascension from 2:04-2:05
sancuary from 2:20-2:22
warlock from 5:14-5:17
lockout from 5:52-5:54

Flawlessly smooth, pristine execution, the true benchmark for gameplay. Halo is and always will be the King, Killzone eat your generic @ssed heart out.
Thrillhouse  +   1480d ago
Why bring that fanboy shit into this? Lame.
cliffbo  +   1480d ago
i wasn't going to comment, but this is why PS3 owners can't resist. your comment is pure denial. KZ3 makes this look last gen and that isn't an exaggeration
Thrillhouse  +   1480d ago
No, that is definitely an exaggeration.

Everyone should just stfu with the hyperbole, seriously.

Killzone is as bad as Gears of War when it comes to having no color. I'd rather have less than Breathtaking graphics and color. As much as I love Gears of War, it gets boring to see three bland colors. I'd rather have "last gen" graphics.

Throw in all the customization and variety and Halo is definitely king.

although i think killzone 3 does look better from what ive seen, to denie halo reach the credit it deserves is pathetic. It looks stunning and will take the best graphics crown on the xbox when it releases
da305kratos  +   1480d ago
that isnt an exaggeration, if u want to say something smart you should have stated that even though it does kick halos a$$ in the graphics department, that the halo series is far better in every other way or something like that, if thats ur opinion of course....but being ignorant doesnt make things true and other things a lie
jdktech2010  +   1480d ago
Agreed, lame.....Though Halo is my favorite shooter franchise and don't see it changing....keep the topic on Halo since that's what this article is about.

I can't wait for this game

Edit: Cliffbo.....see this is why I laugh at fanboys and people who think graphics are all that matters. Halo CE is still very playable today......

For me....Gameplay >>>> Graphics (which Reach has some nice graphics btw....sure, not KZ level but I don't care if they are or not)

It's obvious that you're at least slightly fanboyish from your 2 bubbles and last 2 comments I've seen. It's honestly so ignorant of peple who have never played the game to comment on it's faults....I've never played KZ2 (seen it but not played it) so I can say that the graphics are great but if you don't like the game, then why arey ou in an article about it???? Oh wait, that's what fanboys do....now I understand

This game is so slow and boring. and it hasn't changed since halo 2. What do people like about his game... how colorful it is???
hennessey86  +   1480d ago
people dont like this game they love this game, it has flawless gameplay, amazing graphics, and its sure to have a great story and unbeatable multiplayer and forge world 2 and jet packs, space flight combat oh my god the list goes on, or to put it another way the greatest game ever made
telekeneticmantis  +   1480d ago
You should be more competent then to say something so rediculous. The gameplay is completely unbalanced If I sneak up on someone and have them beat all they to do is use a magical armor lock switch and they are saved... that's lame. It's annoying, they should fix their misbalances before they can compete with todays shooters. and the game is boring you walk around forever before you even see an opponent. Don't get me started on the story. The best Halo stories are in the movies and books, and this story 90% of the people already know the ending. Booooooo!!!
jdktech2010  +   1480d ago
telekenetic , you haven't played Halo have you? First off, the armor lock is the worst 1v1 armor ability....all you're doing is giving me time to time a grenade and kill with one shot to the head after your shields are down.

AL = great for objective games

Next, all COD and other shooters are who sees who first.....heaven forbid he's behind you, you're dead before you realize it.

Halo is different in that it gives every player a chance to win every encounter 1v1 whether it starts behind, to the side or in front of you.

Sad trolls are sad.....as for the story being bad...you've never played a Bungie game have you? I'm not worried about that.....they have very deep universes and good stories for FPS games

Why bother arguing with someone who is so vapid that they troll threads of games they don't like in order to obtain some form of human interaction? I'm sure there's nobody else willing to talk to you in real life, but maybe you should change yourself instead of bringing your idiocy onto the internet.
STICKzophrenic  +   1480d ago
That was sick. That dude was pretty good too.

I liked when he was long distance waiting for the Armor Lock to finish and then capped him with the DMR.

It was really cool near the end when he was again waiting for the Armor Lock to finish and the invisible dude smashed him.

Even though I'm horrible using the Needle in multiplayer, it's probably one of my favorite guns. I LOVE the supercombine explosion.
Fanb0y  +   1480d ago
I was surprised they showed a pre-release gameplay video featuring a competent player.
Malebaria  +   1480d ago
I can really see Halo Reach being my shooter of choice for quite a while.
By the way,here´s hoping more shooters bring on the customization Reach has,it really does add to the longevity.

Can't wait till the 14th of September. I was just playing some Halo 3 split-screen yesterday, good times.

Graphics upgrade very noticeable in the video. Watching this makes me laugh at my skills.
QuantumWake  +   1480d ago
Everything is right where I remember it from Halo 2. Nice! :)

Btw, that guy got owned at 2:28. lol

Chnswdchldrn  +   1480d ago
what boring footage

i just hope the game doesn't look as bad as it did in beta mode

good god was it ugly

it was like yo our game looks like halo 3 still lets smother it in motion blur and call it good lolololol
jdktech2010  +   1480d ago
bad troll is bad...if you didn't like it, why are you here?

See the definition of troll for the answer to that question
etownone  +   1480d ago
It's probably going to piss off a ton of fanboys, but this is most likely GOTY.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 .... awesome game but no online multi-player
MASS Effect 2 .... Awesome game (my fav game this gen) but again, no multi-player
GT5 - most likely a superb AAA game that will raise the bar but let's face it, has a racing game ever won GOTY?

- Awesome single or 4 player co-op campaign
- Competitive Multi-Player so finely tuned and amazing that it will be used for MLG for years to come.
- amazing online community and the best developer support
- Theatre
And last but certainly not least.....
- FORGE 2 .... People that don't understand what this is NEED to see the ViDoc made by Bungie. This alone will keep the game alive for years to come.

Don't forget, Bungie has MORE surprises coming THIS WEEK at Gamescom! So that list'll grow even more!

Thanx for the vid-------^^^
Must be one of the best map editors i've ever seen(on consoles). I'm truly contemplating getting a 360 just for this; just awesome.
Time_Is_On_My_Side  +   1479d ago
To be honest....
...the only thing I noticed that changed was that they added running in that video and of course the weapons never change just look different.

You never know what can happen now till release, but I don't see an incentive to buy a new that that practically plays the same way unless you play in forge world.

Having one new element could have been DLC in my eyes, not a new game.
STICKzophrenic  +   1479d ago
You come off really dumb dude.

There's lots of new weapons.

DMR, Needle Rifle, Grenade Launcher, Focus Rifle, Plasma Launcher and Plasma Repeater.

Then throw in all the Armor Abilities, and the game is substantially different and not having "one new element." Please get a clue before posting such nonsense.
CryWolf  +   1479d ago
Yea! this multiplayer map is from halo 2 its one of my favorite maps in halo 2 i love playing online with other people on Ivory Tower.
