Halo1&2 the best selling game on Xbox. The final chapter is one month away. The highly anticipated Halo 3 Screenshot blowsout from the single player mode.
Light effects, water effects and incredible sky!
Holy hell does 1up have alot of info out on this game. That was ALOT of reading and screens. Looks like IGN and 1UP have HUGE schedules coming up in the weeks before this releases.
Now that is more like it. I never doubted that Halo 3 was going to turn out amazing. The two screens that stood out were the one with the skky/clouds as well as the water/waterfall screen. Good job bungie.
I really had my doubt..But not anymore :)
This game is looking awsome enough to me
lol..ok, im willing to admit that some early screen grabs irked me a tad, but the recent ones are great. Still not on the same level of some games out there but close enough! But whatever in lacks in graphics it will surely make up in gameplay and good old fashion fun!
im defo gonna get another 360 just for this:). wish i hadnt sold my 1st 360 but needed the cash:(
How beautiful it will be to see a plasma or napalm grenade going off in that lovely water.
Those storm clouds.
I think i remember reading somewhere that Bungie were creating the clouds in 3D rather than the usual flat skies.
in the beta on Valhalla, i took the banshee out of the level up as far as i could go. there were at least 4 different altitudes for 3d clouds and sky, and at the highest point stars appeared and the sky kept getting darker and darker. they didnt just do clouds, they did the whole damn atmosphere! hope the full game lets us check it all out without having to use a glitch
they really improved the graphics, this is shaping up to be a great game, well done Bungie
I think all the people who approved it got stunned and dazed after looking at the screenshots.
WOW WOW WOW!! Cant wait for this!
Awesome looking. I wonder what the 'Halo 2.5 looks like garbage' crowd has to say about these.
Oh yea, they'll probably say the same thing, proving how ignorant they are.
Wow this pic looks insane. Imagine this going on every 5 secs. in multiplayer. My life = over.
I never noticed that one!! That looks sooooooooo COOL!!!
One MORE MONTH!
i must say, that when i first saw screenshots of Halo3 a few months back, i thought it didn't have as great of graphics as i was expecting from the franchise game for the xbox...but these new screenshots are absolutely amazing. the ones with the rolling clouds look fantastic, along with the water shots and sand also...just goes to show how people really need to wait until a game is closer to it's release date to see how it will look
nothing else to say
HALO 3>> x 100000000000000000000000000000 000(infinite number...) other game on the planet earth...
What can I say?
Man, this game just moved back to the top of my list. I admit, I was starting to buy into the anti-hype about the graphics but whoa, those are pretty damn good screens. And yeah, way to go 1up on the "AI is not afraid to pilot vehicles any more". Nice way to show you didn't play H2 much. Grunts left my ass on more than one occasion when I didn't hop right in an available vehicle. I found myself hunting for my own ride more than once.
"it's about the goddamned time Microsoft brings out the big mathaphucka gun!"
looking pretty hot, nice graphics with color instead of damn near black and white.
as i was saying, HALO 3 >> x 1000000000000000000(infinite number....) than BETA....right?
can't get onto the site cos im at work but the article pic has amazing water effects. Im glad this game is getting better
game looks 20 times better then the beta - i must say - shots look crisp but at the end - same lame animation and the bright colors dont give it that really WAR setting...as u bots would call "black and white" setting
death and destruction isnt colourful just remember that - but ill get this when it hits the PC - i loved the 1st - 2nd one killed the series...and the 3rd we would just have 2 wait and see
This is a futuristic FPS, if you are fight in a forest what do you think happens? As soon as you get there it turns grey? Black and white doesn't make a game realistic, it make it dull.
You have totally missed the point.
Star Wars and The Lords of the Rings are not too realistic as well, but they are full of colors and very beautiful to look at.
Sure, you can argue war films like Platoon are realistic, but has any realistic war film ever become a blockbuster? War films are just not as memorable nor successful as Star Wars, The Lords of the Rings, Harry Potter, or Jurassic Park. Sci-fi and fantasy escapism is what people really love and what will become big hit.
Maybe that's why Killzone did not become as big as a hit as Halo, and never will.
The second halo did not kill the serious because it had the best mutiplyer which is still played the hel out of now but the campaign wasnt has good as the first one.
The earth will tremble, millions of people won't know what hit them, prepare to be blown away.
Sep 25th is coming, brace yourselves. Halo 3 - FINISH THE FIGHT.
"This is the way the world ends."
YOUR WORLD WILL BURN UNTIL ITS SURFACE IS BUT GLASS!
Can't wait, multiplayer online is the thing I care about most. But now that campaign in completely online, the experience is amplified significantly.
Just look at how incredible the colors are in the game. Compare it to halo 2 and there's a huge difference. Halo 2 had a blue haze or dull colors in the campaign a lot.
So... what are you Halo/XBox 360 hater have to say in your defense now? mmm.. it seems as if you victory dance about graphics sucking hard on the beta.
You obviously don't know how things work. When a game is so big and hyped people have astronomical expectations... expectations that are impossible to meet. Halo 3 beta had one purpose... lower those expectations to the grownd... in order to meet expectations... If Bungie would play the Kill Zone 2 card by saying that Halo 3 would look like some CGI video and then say it was ingame... Halo 3 would be a big disapointment.
Bungie is know for doing things like that... they show early screens and demo of the game... and then deliver a massive improvement. meeting most people expectations.
I would rather be disapointed at the beginning and be surprised at the end that surprised at the start and then be disapointed at the end.
At this shot :)
Ohhhh MY god..
it could look twice as better as this but sony fanboys will say that the graphics looks just like halo2 because they don't have it on the ps3,but if it was on the ps3 then they would say that the graphics are amazing and this is what p*sses me off,they never say anything good about a console or game unless it's a ps.
they are already saying that halo better enjoy its succes now because when mgs4 comes out it will be twice as better then halo and sale even more games and mgs3 only sold 3 million coppies with so called over 100 million ps2 owners world wide and that's not good,i had a ps2 and i played the metal gears game and i didn't enjoy the game or the story and on top of that it's mostly cut scenes.i like both systems but mgs4 can't compare tp halo 3
so..."this is how the world ends"...
a big earthquake..about 10.5 in magnitude....
People running to best buy for a of Halo 3...
Finish the Fight!!!
lol I like your avatar every time I see it, it makes me laugh.
This is the picture that wowed me...just look at that sky, it's B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L
Spartans! Prepare for glory!
I'm going to play it so much it will ruin my life :( Nooo!!! :D
moondust - im the idiot hahahaaha u should list this that represent war and then if u were to make a game - would u go with a darker grey theme or a colourful theme like halo...
war = death/dark/destruction/hostile / etc etc...now making a game on a war - why the Fuk would u want bright colors? ur trying to set the mood of what the game is - its a war - therefore it should be dark and grey - war with bright colors doesnt set the theme or war - and if u dont agree then u ppl are just stupid..
blindstar - i dont know wtf ur talking about out of all ppl - werent u and ur bots stating oh KZ2 will never match or even come close to teh CGI trailer - and what happened at E3? the ALPHA version met and passed the CGI trailer - no cards being played here - sony sys it can do and it did - bungie is suppose to be MS trojan horse and they were suppose to make halo3 this amazing game that would shock the world...ahhhhh all i see is halo 2 with sharper graphics...same lame animation...same gameplay..whats sooo great about it? if its the same as halo2??? bungie needs to put out cheap res screen to lower ppls expectations because they know they can do what ppl want....unlike sony with KZ2
just picture this - KZ2 ruins any game on any console and its a fukn alpha stage - can u just picture what the final product is gonna look like..
but whatever - u ppl have the green c0ck of MS in ur a$$ and mouth and cant see the true reality that halo3 is a let down - i would have expected them to try something new in gameplay and improve the cheap animations
COD4 is a great example of what im talking about gameplay and new ways of playing a FPS shooter
retarded statement. You sony queers all go on and on about "realism" but realistically a jungle won't look dark and gray like "war" apparently does. The middle of the desert in africa, sun is bright overhead.
You know crap all about anything, having things be bright more realistic then the make everything gray approach. Perhaps you haven't been outside in a while.
You're also judging an entire game on its graphics, which is utterly fugging retarded. You want to judge things off looks? Well we got movies which are so realistic they got real people in them. But oh, these are GAMES. As in you PLAY THEM. Not that your damn ignorant fanboy self would understand.
You say things like "if you don't agree...then you're stupid" However you have horrid crap spelling yourself, you have no right to call people stupid. Sorry that Halos coloring is more realistic than killzone.
So much for your fugging realism dumbass. Real life is bright, shooting bullets in bright areas doesn't make them gray. I can see all of 20 meters in killzone 2 then I see a dark gray wall. The walls and so on themselves in the background look like a flat slab with the "drab unrealistic war city" texture thrown on then. It looks flat. In halo you can see for miles a lot of the time, and you can tell every single thing you see is 3d. Yeah, I'm sure halos AI and animations could be twice as good if there was a gray lifeless wall surrounding you at all times, so they wouldn't have to bother animating things miles and miles away. But they are in Africa, and Africa pretty open. Thus halo is realistic. Your killzone 2 may be realistic in its setting (a dark cloudy planet with zero color), but in every sense of war as we know it, especially in a bright place like Africa, Halo kicks the hell out of anything else.
ROLF ok, take a side by side comparison KZ2 looks amazing but its not the CGI trailer.
Also dude I hope for your sake they really change the way KZ2 plays because the first one was pretty much dubbed Killpath, since the enemies would stand around getting killed and it was the most linear game ever. Have fun though!
this is the screen that made me say whoa. the fuel rod detail and debris is sic
thats better, lately i've been seeing such crappy images of Halo3 and with comments next to it saying how fantastic they are. which was total crap.
but these are looking really nice. especially the water.
