Comparing Halo 2 and Halo 3 multiplayer
Halo 3 is the last one.
that whole video looked like some 16bit crap the snes... worst video ever.
p.s. i wasnt saying halo looks 16bit... just the video... just want to clear that up so you dont kill me.
same as: http://youtube.com/watch?v=... dated: May 18, 2007
is old....the footage I have seen of Halo 3 makes the beta look like a scrub edition. The game is gonna rock!
by this comparison anyways, and that on youtube,(not really good) shows that there isnt much of a difference to be seen, even though it is most likely much different looking for halo 3, so enjoy your game guys, hope you have fun
really bad footage but Halo 3 has 3 times the detail and feels way better then Halo 2. Much smoother. After playing the beta then Halo 2, Halo 2 felt very flat and plain.
23 days and counting!
This is beta footage and not the current build!
The look about the same.
Really disappointing, this was supposed to be the big game for the 360 this year.
if you believe a BETA looking game, as a YOUTUBE video does any game justice.
Imagine what this game will look like on a 40 inch Samsung 720P(yup that's what I'm getting)
This game will Rawk..I have never been spoiled by Halo graphics and yet, I love to play the game. Bungie did not go out making this the best looking game ever. There is a balance when it comes to Multi-player games in what you give importance too.
Halo 3 is not confined to a small area combat where you can alocate plenty of man hours and time to make building and textures look their best. This is not Gear of War looking game.
This is Halo, the best Console FPS franchise, after GoldenEye007 came, then left the building.
You go ahead and say that Stella. You'll have your foot in you mouth when the 25th comes.
I think what they were comparing was gameplay, not graphics. We all know a Halo 3 is going to have better visuals than Halo 2. What this video showed us, or atleast me, was that even though it's Halo 3 the game isn't any different than Halo 2. Ok, maybe there are new weapons and vehicles, but it plays the same. If I recall correctly people were complaining about how Sony has kept the same controller for the past three systems, and it was a dumb idea because it's not new or innovative (there are tons of other things/game franchises that were complained about for this reason also). Well Halo 3 is the same thing gameplay wise since Halo 2, the only real reason to purchase the game is the story, which declined after Halo 2, but hopefully they can clear some things up in the third one. I think that's what they meant to show us..
Edit: Unless you all assumed it was going to be the same game just better visually then this shouldn't be much of an issue.
I rather have the core gameplay stay the same. It wouldn't be Halo if Bungie changed it. The item thing is innovative enough for me.
That is the one thing which I would want in a halo game.
1. This was originally from game trailers
2. This was from the Halo 3 beta.
3. Report. Duplicate/OLD story.
Why is everyone so worried that this makes Halo 3 look like crap? If it's truely a great game, and if beta blew you away why worry what the others who haven't seen it or played it think about it?
just wondering why someone would post a very low quality vid of comparison between H2 to H3 beta, just seems kind of pointless, many played the Beta multiplayer, it was just a small sample of the real thing, of course it plays like Halo, but alot smoother, why would Bungie NOT want it to play like Halo?, Halo2's multiplayer is STILL PLAYED AND ENJOYED BY MILLIONS long after it released, Bungie made the Beta to make sure that H3 multiplayer gameplay would be even more balanced and addicting than H2's= SMART, because that will ensure that H3 will have the same longevity. Reading Bungie's weekly updates you can feel how epic the campaign story is and its going to be the best yet= great campaign, endless multiplayer, great graphics= Halo3 will be a huge hit, no worries=
Ya, I kinda see where you're going with that, but I think a major reason why H2's longevity lasted so long was because it had no competition on the Xbox console.
I wonder which one is better.
the quality is as poor as those booty shake vids with kids dancing in the bathroom in the dark
Come on, we all know HALO 3 will blow HALO 2 and any other multiplayer game out of the water for some time to come. Let HALO 2 rest in peace.
The quality is utter crap
how about have it in 720p, on just watch the Halo 3 Et tu brute. That shows the HD difference between the campaign shots.
how did this get approved i could barely tell the difference because the quality was so bad
What point is this video trying to make?
Do you guys know 1080p exists? Yeah, it does, and it is better than 720p. So stop saying ridiculous statements like, "imagine it on a 40" samsung 720p tv z0mgz!!!" Hooray for 1080p
unless u have a 50" or bigger screen u wont really see a difference but 720p is the sweet spot
the xbox cant output 1080p, so yes 720p is the best halo is gonna get! to be honest i have a 32" 720p and a 47" 1080p and you'd be hard pushed to see any difference in games, movies is a different matter!
How the hell did this get approved? The comparison is 2 months old.
Just saying 1080p is better. Prices are coming down for 1080p sets. The videos look that much sweeter. Definitely a bad comparison.
halo is in 720p like ALL xbox games, having a 1080p tv wont make any difference, try understanding technology before coming out with pointless comments!
Its not even that! the quality of the video is so poor this would even make GoW look on par with these games.
#7 You make yourself seem like an idiot saying such things but yah you are somewhat right the gameplay can't change that much or it won't be the same game people fell in love with but to say Halo3 isn't its own game and a evolution is moronic.
Something about that bebo charactor makes me think he's a Sony favoring fanboy.
Halo 3 looks Beta-riffic nice try.
The kid probably seen a Halo 3 ad and is getting worried.
Its the same trick they used with GT5 vs PGR4.
All I was saying is that I would like to see new game features/game modes.
Its the sound of a thousand sony trolls getting nervous.. deep down they know this will be the biggest game ever.
Because I couldn't tell the transition from two to three
@ the guy below me: Actually I was referring to the video quality. Calm down man, I wasn't talking crap about Halo 3 this time.
The video quality is so low it looks like it's only made up of 10 pixels, plus the fact that they have used Halo 3 Beta footage. Just because you are getting worried about the fact Halo 3 is gonna own the PS3, it doesn't mean you have to come and try and comfort yourself by posting a load of ridiculous, stupid rubbish.
halo 3 is in high def (720p), so even if was the same game the increased res would make it look alot better! of course this will visual be better, but in my opinion the series still hasnt meet halo 1 single player campain!
Fanboys still makes these comparisons? Oh wait, they dont.
It's just other fanboys that think they're cool, and so they bring up old stuff.... talk about low-lifers.
.......well, auto aim is still there...:(
Eehh...no it´s not. It didn´t appear in the beta.
Because when I fired at a guy with the sniper rifle when he was man cannoning, I thought it´d be a headshot, but it missed. And the shot was barely touching his head.
1. It's old.
2. It is in crappy low-res.
3. The Halo 3 footage is from the beta.
So why is this news so freaking popular?!
Yeah, give us some comparison with Halo 2 and Halo 3 omega or the final version.
You are a moron. How about you research high definition, the xbox 360 now has the power to upconvert the games to 1080p. Hence the 1080p option in the display tab. Do you even own a 360, oh that's right, you don't.
