CVG Says " Bungie has come good on its promise and released the first in-engine footage of Halo Reach at the Video Game Awards 2009. It looks wiiicked."
not too p1ss on anyones bonfire here. but someone analysed it and it has ultra high AA, therefore there os no way that was TOTALLY in-game
It's in-engine, not in-game. Of course they will dress it up for it's unveiling, it's usually the case for all games, but you can expect the game to at least be in the same vain. It was enough, for me at least, to show this will be the first Halo game to show a dramatic improvement over it's successor.
According to bungie.net, the video is the opening cinematic for REACH and completely representative of what you will get when you control the character.Go and play Halo CE,Halo 2, Halo3 or Halo 3 ODST and point out which cinematic in any of those games was not 100% in-game graphics? Bungies cinematics have always been the same as in gameplay graphics.
There is no reson they cant up the AA for cutscenes, dont mean the AA is going to be that high in gameplay, look at replays for any driving game, seeing as the replay does not have to calculate any physics the console can afford to output more beauty (more AA, better motion blur etc). So this could very well be in engine, just that the engine has various modes, just like driving games have.
The BOTS are allowed to dream, whilst reality stands firm before them in all its glory. ~PLAY B3YOND~
trailer was underwhelming and the graphics are unimpressive BUT I have no doubt that it will be a good game. this is a full halo game unlike odst.
The graphics were not underwhelming. They were actually some of the most impressive I've seen.
The graphics in the trailer looked amazing. However, just like any game on any system, the only graphics that truly matter are the actual gameplay graphics, which we have yet to see.
Only a moron would think that the graphics were in game. Does anyone remember the CGI trailer of Halo 3? The one where Masterchief throws a shield grenade on the ground to protect himself from incoming missiles and then he starts to run and jumps off a cliff? Deja vu If that was a Sony trailer, all internet would have exploded with "zOmG Sony is lying to us again, full CGI trailerz"
If this great news for all gamers. How the heck can anyone criticize the huge improvement Bungie is doing for Reach if you are a true gamer and not a hater. I guess it is not on PS3 and that is the problem here on N4G.
The trailer does look good no-one other than an idiot would deny that. To me this looks a whole lot better than ODST.
I agree, even if you hate MS and Bungie and Halo, the fact that they make a game that raises the bar just means that Uncharted3 or Killzone3 will have to look even better which is good for everyone. Lets keep moving forward? instead of barging each other side to side. If I see a game that truly is jaw dropping I care not which system it is on, my thoughts focus on stuff like "wow, look at how far gaming has come since pong" it makes me proud to be a gamer.
Come good on their promise my ass. The engine may not be the same as the Halo 3 engine but it's still weak as hell
The video was a blend of in-game, bullshot and AA was turned up high, but it definitely won't be like that in-game.
Looks good! I hope this is the one game that makes me want to get the 360! Never liked Halo but this is something I feel like it's worth getting!
Trust me, you feel that way cause of the music. I fell for that with halo1&2 (mainly 2) but once you start playing it you'll start wondering (wth, this is the uber halo? this thing is going to put me to sleep. It's like any other normal average shooter out there) Think I'm Bsing? Ok, you go find out for yourself. Halo's musical score has always been it's biggest asset. It pumps your nerves and blood but the actual gaming is a very different story.
Yeah if you never liked Halo before, youll probably love Reach. Its obviously going to be totally different... I mean this will apparently feature Spartans that talk more than Master chief did. Totally different kind of game. Makes total sense
What you say might be true, I've never liked Halo so believe me I get your point. @ Srh12 Why all the hate? Its the first damn trailer, and you are already hating on a game you know nothing about besides it being a shooter, I see no purple, gay colors or childish colors in it. So im hoping for some changes, this actually looks a bit rough.
For Halo 3 theres always been a jump in the graphics from the cut scenes to in-game. That was painfully clear in the very beginning of Halo 3 when Sarge finds you laying on the ground then when you jump to in-game Sarge looks painfully low polly. of course cut scenes are dressed up and rendered perfectly slick. But to Halo's credit its in-game and cut scenes arent a world apart but it can be apparent in certain areas. I would say the recent video release would be close to what the actual in game would look like but alas still gotta wait to actually gameplay vids are released then we can go from there, so till then....
there's like 8 comments that are copy/pasted!
Iv got to say the trailer was nice.. but it wasn't the most impressive thing i have seen this year but i'm gonna wait till i see some gameplay to make some proper judgement but so far its looking epic for 2010 for both platforms merry christmas people
I really figured this game would be a huge step up, but after ODST (which I thought had crap graphics) I was a little concerned. Graphically, it was a step down from Halo 3 in my opinion HOWEVER... after see in the detail and textures in this, Im very relieved that it will be a huge upgrade. Yeah I know this was all cinematic and no gameplay, but still, I mean the cinematics and faces in ODST were basically PS2 quality, this however looked fantastic!
Oh so know you see the changes and you like it? Lol! what a hypocrite...
is n4g glitching?
My fellow XBOX360 Friends, Over the coming weeks, PS3 Supporters will try and downplay the amazing visuals shown at The Video Game Awards last night of Halo: Reach. The impenetrable community of Halo has the biggest game of the current generation coming, and they're TERRIFIED. The fact is, a real-life Master Chief could have shot them in the arm from their home televisions from the TV's and they would have still said... "Looks like PS2 graphics." They can't see the forest through the trees. It's called... "PS3-itis". It's a common condition amongst PS3 Supporters that doesn't allow you to view the competitor's games honestly, it makes you envious and angry, and it forces you to lash out with recylcled comments used since Halo 3. It's a common condition on N4G. The side effects are unfortunate though. For some reason, it tightens up the wallet and forces the infected to not buy any of its own PS3 Games in the process. There is currently funding for research, but Sony may have to use it to recover the 4.7 BILLION DOLLAR LOSS for the PS3. So it looks like we're stuck with it. So just ignore the ramblings, jealousy, and "haterism". And prepare for 2010. They won't be around after that anyway. :-) Oh yeah... NO. ONE. CARES.
uh...doctor. Patient Truth has forgotten to take his medicines again, and he's started his inane gibberings once more. *edit - Ahh! I see he's been confined to the concealed 1 star solitary confinement. People can sleep safely in their beds tonight.
On topic - Halo Reach looks good but not jaw-dropping good.
Lol seriously how can you be impressed by that halo reach trailer? You prolly think it looks better than kz2 like the other xbots. You are in so much denial it's sad! Oh and for a game that no one cares about it had no problem beating out every other game for goty! Eat it you sad sorry fanb#tch!
"It's a common condition amongst PS3 Supporters that doesn't allow you to view the competitor's games honestly"...you've got a good point there. People fail to realize that being able to acknowledge the strengths and weaknesses of both makes your opinion more respected.
The video wasn't impressive. Hopefully it's in pre-alpha and will get better.
have low expectations in terms of graphics. It look meh in terms of graphics. Sorry, but that's the truth and it hurts.
I think it is either a glitch or PS3 fans with multiple accounts are running wild with copy and pasting. OT: Why it is all graphics 24/7 a day here on N4G. Game A does not look as good as game B. Please, can we just enjoy games for what they are for once. SO what if Reach only look a little bit better than Halo 3 at the end, as long it has a good co op campaign, new ideas added to the gamplay, and have the legendary Bungie online support and fun factor.. that is all you can ask for. Graphics can only take you so far. KZ2 really is having a rough time online ever since MW2 came out and Halo 3 still have tens of thousands of players to play with online even after 2 years upon its release. I have no doubt Halo Reach can achieve graphics close to the one shown in the trailer. And like Kurt Angle once said, "That my friend, IS TRUE"
It always amazes me just how much hype effects some people. I do not allow "hype machines" to interfere with my objectivity or my initial perceptions of a game. That being stated, I am excited about Reach and was very pleased to see the iconic ships, weaponry, and armor in such a graphically improved iteration. I am one of those weird guys that loves Halo single player more than I do the multiplayer (although multiplayer is great it loses to TF2 in my heart). I can't wait to spend more time fighting the Covenant and maybe even controlling a squad of Spartans. If you are someone that buys into hype just remember you are allowing yourself to be manipulated and really shouldn't be pissed off when the hype leads you to a disappointment; and I am not just talking about games.
No, it didn't.
Uh yes it does. Need to take off the fanboy blinders first though.
http://i45.tinypic.com/241o... http://i162.photobucket.com... It looks absolutely horrible. I mean... just look at the terrible anti-aliasing and texture detail. Not to mention the god-awful lighting. http://image.com.com/gamesp... ^^^ This obviously just blows it away. k. I'm done with sarcasm.
It looked pretty good, but given what's been released and what's on the horizon, it's pretty standard. I'll say it's what halo 3 should have looked like but not meeting or setting any bars.
didn't see much really. Not really this gen graphically so far. hopefully game play is more.
mention the word halo their blood starts to boil. on topic: I'm going to be the few who is actually going to say something positive, the trailer really impressed me and it is actually looking good.
I honestly do not know what people are complaining about. I'll admit that the first time I saw it I was a tad underwhelmed, but the changes were obvious. Since my original viewing I have watched it in HD several times and the more I watch it the more I am impressed by not only the detail but by also the huge improvements this game has over H3. MC H3 - http://www.videogamesblogge... vs Reach Cinematic - http://www.bungie.net/image... For all you that are saying that this is "not in game/in engine, but not in game/ CG", Bungie stated that the cut scenes were part of the opening cinematic for Reach. If (and that's a big if) you have ever played any Halo games, all the cut scenes are done within the game engine as seen in these links: Halo CE - http://www.youtube.com/watc... Halo 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watc... Halo 3 - http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Someone please explain to me how several characters getting in a airship and flying away was exciting. What the hell is this article talking about this video looking wicked? They didn't do anything but talk and then fly away. Did I miss something, or are you guys that easily manipulated. You are seriously hyped up and they showed you nothing. No wonder these games sell like crack the masses are zombies.
No, it doesn't look fantastic at all. The graphics were mediocre and it wasn't even gameplay. I was highly disappointed.
The character models look like something out of Half Life 2. This was suppose to be the 360's flagship game and it's no where near Killzone 2's in-game cinematics. I mean if they can't pull it of in the cinematic trailer they've just unveiled, then it's, "Game Over Man!" Just like that whinny guy from James Cameron's masterpiece, "Aliens" says, "Game Over Man!" This is the best that its gonna get. I dont care if its in the pre-Alpha,Delta, Bravo, whatever stage. This it. "Game Over Man!!!" P.S. I've got a 360 and a Ps3 and Im not a fanboy of either. Maybe its not about each of the consoles limitations. Maybe it's just the developers who are to lazy and overpaid to care about pushing either console to it's limits. Let's face it Bungie has let us down again in terms of the graphics department, who knows the story and awesome but slow gameplay might save it like Halo 3 did.
it definitely looks better than ODST but i was extremely disappointed in ODST visuals i really thought that halo 3 looked better than ODST and that was an older game. This definitely looks better than both of them though.
N4G where the stupid live Awesome Reach showing this and it puts my faith fully back into Bungie's might as a dev
What actually is the percentage of PS3 fanboys on this site? It's surely in the high 90's Yes guys, Bungie's efforts here for the past two years look more like they spent that time in the toilet while employed Kangaroos jumped up and down on their keyboards Not a clue
I've favored the PS3 for some time, but I just like gaming and I also like my 360 a lot. The funny thing is, 98% of the negative comments come from people who we already recognize as diehard PS3 supporters. It's really silly that they think people are going to take their anti-360 ramblings seriously. It's like living in bizzaro land around here.
I think the trailer looked fantastic sans the facial animation/modeling. Bungie/MS has set some expectations here so I hope they deliver. I'm impressed so far.
Some of the most impressive graphics for the 360, but compared to any recent PS3 games it just looked okay. It was a cutscene not even game play footage, and if that was underwhelming wait till they show gameplay and it looks just the same as odst.
if the actual gameplay looks like this it will just be icing on a already awsome series. The ps3 fanboys are in a panic attack. They know the huge amount of hype and sales that this game is going to have next year making everyone forget about the poor little ps3 who has worked so hard to try and keep up with the 360. Next year it will be about Halo, no one will care about GOW3, GT, The Last Flop, and so on just like no one cared about UC2 and Flopzone 2. There is absolutely nothing they can do to prevent the attention and hype that this game will command next year. All they can do is wait for NPD numbers and watch the poor little ps3 sink back into the hole it was crawling out of.
why most of the blind ps3 fanboys have animals avatars?
Its nice to see the Graphics Jump wasn't expecting that
