Now you can really see how much Bungie improved the graphics with this HD video, I guess this kill the thought of the Xbox been maxed out.

One word to describe this,


SnuggleBandit5241d ago (Edited 5241d ago )

definitely a good jump from halo 3 and odst...nothing too amazing yet though

EDIT: Wow...i was praising the game!!!! And honestly i didn't see anything mind-blowing did you?? Game looks good...and im not a fanboy, if i had the money i would buy a 360 but i don't.

darkequitus5241d ago (Edited 5241d ago )


Of course itis not amazing. It is not on the PS3

At least you are true to form i.e. Blind

I suggest you download the 720P version from the Bungie site. IF you can stomach going there.

el zorro5241d ago


Sure buddy, if you say so.

Seriously though, those graphics are insane. So detailed, clean and with amazing lighting. The landscape also looked extremely good.

Bungie5241d ago

put your age (or just copy this " 10/10/1980" )

and download it

it's about 115 mb

damn what a busy day

lokin5241d ago

I tried to not let myself get exited for this game just yet...(I hate to wait for things I want now)... But that went out the window when watching this... Can not wait.

dragunrising5241d ago

I am throughly impressed with the apparent improvements in Halo Reach. New engine, multiple Spartans, and the return of elites for enemies. I hope the graphics in the trailer are representative of in game. The hype has started...:-)

starchild5241d ago

Sweetness. I thought I would be disappointed with the graphics but to my surprise they are freakin sick. Bungie you have won me back over.

green5241d ago (Edited 5241d ago )

Just downloaded the HD version from and Halo Reach is sure going to be a force to be reckoned with in 2010.

ABizzel15241d ago

OK the HD looks a lot better. This looks really good, but I still want to see gameplay.

darkmurder5241d ago

Graphics look great, as usual PS3 fanboys will say its worse than Halo 3.

Maddens Raiders5241d ago (Edited 5241d ago )

presentation... and this is the in-game engine to boot? Color me impressed MS / Bungie.

darkmurder5241d ago

Be funny to see everyones thoughts after the last thread where everyone was bashing it.

Immortal Kaim5241d ago

Do yourselves a favour and download the HD trailer from Bungie Net...Looked a lot better than I anticipated.

jhoang5241d ago

this cinematic needs to be compared with the ODST cinematics to see the real change. because that's the closest thing we can compare too. you dont normaly get that type of lighting in-game anyway i dream to be wrong though.

version of the trailer (the full 125 MB BungieNet one) has me very excited and impressed. Let's see what they can do with the engine in various environments (indoor, outdoor, lighting, particles, etc..) and I'm dying to see gameplay and I REALLY hope this one comes with a level editor even more expansive than any other console one. I have yet to play through Halo 3 but did play through both the first two on the first Xbox. This actually has me much more hyped up than I was before for this game, and I'd just bought an Elite this fall (first 360, had Xbox 1 last gen)...Nice to own both now!

Very well done trailer, amazing music, and the little touches were epic, ie: the dude loading rounds into the clip on the craft as the Spartan walked by....Very cool.

Edit: I should recommend EVERYONE watch the downloaded BungieNet one, I have it on my PC now, and I'm keeping that version, it's the best one by far (ignore the G.T. one as it's compressed and you will notice artifacts and the like). It's awesome. Get it, now.

SixZeroFour5241d ago (Edited 5241d ago )

guys z-hayden is right tho...this was a very good looking trailer, but wasnt too "exciting" cause it was just a cutscene

loving the look so far and boy did the elite bring a huge smile to my face :D i cant wait...bring on the beta bungie!!

EDIT - i agree with everyone recommending the HD version on videos just wont do the trailer justice

andron5241d ago

More realisitc and subtle look in this trailer, very atmospheric.

Still think the facial animations are a bit "cartoony", like Halo 3. Voice work seems much better though...

green5241d ago (Edited 5241d ago )

Do you know why we are going crazy over the graphics even if its just a cutscene? Its because Bungie,s cinematics for all Halo games have always looked 100% identical to in-game graphics.Bungie have never (to my recollection) used pre-rendered graphics or CGI for any cutscene in all 4 Halo games that they have made.
