Here is a video that compares the multiplayer versions of both Halo 2 and Halo 3. Excited much?
the graphics are like night and day. check out the HD link at my page. bigger screen and better resolution.
I didn’t think the difference between Halo 2 and 3 was that large until that video. All the previous videos haven’t shown that big a difference.
kool in that case i will watch it now, although from playing the beta i can already say it looks great =)
yes.... we all know the game looks just like halo 2 even on a next gen console.
and we all no that it is a BETA that mean it is still a work in progress
wow so simliar...they have a lot of work to do.
Famboy alert... fanboy alert... fanboy alert!
Its obvious that those who claim that Halo 3 looks exactly like Halo 2 hvae not even watched the vid, there is a big diffirence. And I know that first hand, becuase I have been playing the Beta all day today.
And yes i know its a beta. a beta that looks like halo 2
I guess now you know.. why Sony only shows CGI for their upcomming games... You people would be depressed if they would to show the real thing or early builds.... or Beta which are intended to test network connectivity and gameplay and not graphics... they don't need beta testers too tell them when the graphics look good... did you know that?
@Police did you notice that the barrel of the rocket launcher rotates when fired? pretty sweet.
One thing I like about Halo3 is that unlike most shooters it's very bright... Also, the action seems very fast... faster than halo 2 that is.
"Bladestar", ooops I mean, "bladestar", sorry I almost didn't recognize you for a moment there without your capital "B" on. HAHAHHA.... What's the matter you can't stand just having one bubble, so you created another account?..HAHAHHA Here's another name to consider for your next account ..."Dipsh!T",...ha, you like it?
2 agrees 1 disagree Bill how old are you, seriously?
Another account? Oo... I guess you finally discovered that sniffing your dog's @ss can get you high... @consolewar, all those agreeing with Bill are all Sony fanboys.. they will agree with anything he says.
It might be my computer but it looked the same to me maybe a little better. Good kill scenes though.
Some people are really dumb...It is a beta...its going to look almost identical to that when its released...it has been in development for several years already, and they are now narrowed down to network bugs, errors, etc...the only potential visual stuff being worked on would probably be clipping issues, if any are happening, and minor pop up annoyances that take the entire development cycle to cure... So deal with it...this is pretty much what it will look like...and if you think it doesn't look much better than Halo 2, you are an idiot...Its not going to make 12 year olds come on here and "omgbbqGears0fW4r!mypimpl ez b3st grphx ev4r!ed", it does appear to make good use of the 360's hardware...but its going to have gameplay that will probably be untouched for a year or two...just like bungie wanted all along...
Can you play the story mode in the beta yet? I hope the storyline is better. You can tell the graphics have been totally redrawn. Looks a lot better then H2. Now bungie don't f up the storyline.
Played it for an couple of hours and bought Halo 2 Monday. Some of these PS3 fanantics are out of their minds say this "BETA" looks like Halo 2.
Its drawn the same way but built with "Halo 3 Engine" you can tell its largely Place holders and naked(Like a new House that has just got it's sheetRock hung with putty work done).
I must say that the graphics are a bit disapointing. I guess i was expecting too much, hopefully the single player will look alot better.
it will, its only a beta
I've said it before and I'll say it again... Without an HDTV I think you will not see a huge improvement. Graphics are not a huge deal in Halo anyway. Its all about the multiplayer here, and it looks like hella fun! As I said though the graphics may look disappointing for the ones expecting a huge improvement.
rockstar you bring up a vary good point in regards to sdtv. On my hdtv the difference between h2 and h3 (the beta rocks!!!) is night and day but on an sdtv running over composite cables it just looks slightly better.
Their monitors must be broken they only show the Halo 2 parts of the Comparison. LOL your monitors are probably made by Sony.
I don't think anyone needs to justify this and indicate that it's just a Beta, it looks amazing enough already.
Graphics will look better.
I played the Beta today, this game looks a hell of alot better than Halo 2. Play Halo 3 on a HD screen and you can tell it looks much better than Halo 2. The colours, HDR, gameplay, textures are all so much better in Halo 3 than Halo 2.
