Nice to hear that. From the images and the description I've seen and read the game seems to be heading in the right direction.

Fanb0y3656d ago

The best improvement I see from the screenshots (next to AA and graphics in general):

The HUD is less intrusive. You can barely see the crosshair. AWESOME!

AKNAA3656d ago

But with Killzone 3, COD7, Resistance 3 and Metro... there is definitely gonna be some serious 2010 FPS competition for GOTY!

starchild3656d ago

Neat. I can't wait to see it in motion. From the screenshots it looks like a highly detailed and realistic painting brought to life.

Odion3656d ago

Cod is Halo's only true equal

FantasyStar3656d ago

I really think Halo looks just like Halo. It looks good enough, but based on those screens: I'm not seeing this game win any "Best Graphics" awards in lew of other games anytime soon. I just hope the aliasing issue has been resolved as that was a nasty point of Halo 3.

Saaking3656d ago


You can't seriously believe that can you? Maybe they're the best for casuals but there are many other great FPS out there. Resistance, KZ2,and MAG are all great examples.

Aren't mods supposed to be unbiased?

JANF3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

@ Saaking

lol, that was a joke right. MAG, K2, please those games are not in the same league of Halo AND COD. MAG and [email protected] are great games but nowhere near the same league.

HeroComplex3656d ago

Let's keep our fingers crossed that they're taking full advantage of the hardware. If they've upped the graphics while still keeping everything smooth online, it'll be amazing.

JonnyBadfinger3656d ago

Halo has no equal when it comes to gameplay... except for maybe Section 8..... which is unheard of nowadays. Halo has shields therefore it cant be compared with instant kill CoD.

Didnt know they were making a Killzone 3, atleast never heard of it... and 2 Killzones in 2 years?? talk about milking... yeah thats right even your precious Killzone is being introduced to the farmers milk bucket. thats the problem with making great games... in the end its gunna be sucked dry by the console it runs on, 360 included.

Metro looks over-rated and is being hyped too much for something we no nothing about.

Resistance 3.... cant really comment, didnt like the first so didnt play the second.

And CoD... as long as it has Zombies i will buy it. Treyarch IMO make the better CoD games. CoD3 and 5 are probably my favourite CoD games.

Bad Company 2 is gunna just be awesome.

other 2010 games to come:
Gran Turismo
Medal of Honor
Alan Wake
Heavy Rain
SC: Conviction
GR: Future Soldier

I think gamers win 2010. feel free to add some i missed.

kaveti66163656d ago

Yeah, Odion. Saaking can be biased enough for the both of you.

Major_Tom3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

Okay, so we can't troll but MODS can?

I fix'd the title.

A Cupcake for Gabe3656d ago

Screen shots look really good. And this shouldn't be comparing itself to HALO 3. Halo 3 was ugly as crap and not a visual profound game. I am glad Bungie is sending Halo off right this time.

Odion3656d ago

I guess sarcasm got lost

lowcarb3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

"Metro looks over-rated and is being hyped too much for something we no nothing about."

How does it look overrated? Sure we know nothing about it's gameplay but to call those visuals overrated are far from the truth. The game just appeared out of no where and people are simply happy.

gamer20103656d ago

Yeah Metro 2033 came out of nowhere and it looks really good. The graphics are exceptional.

Halo Reach also sounds like it is going to be simply amazing. The graphics are outstanding and it sounds like Joystiq were thoroughly impressed with it.

IdleLeeSiuLung3656d ago

prefer solid game play.

Please don't let game play suffer due to graphics. However, with the beta this May, I doubt that will be an issue.

RememberThe3573656d ago

Me and Blaze told you guys games like Coviction and Metro 2033 were possible on the 360 if some smart programmers worked on the platform. Look what happened! They're coming out. The 360 and PS3 give back what you put into them. These devs are putting a lot into the 360 and they're getting a lot back.

Now if only my 360 had an HDMI port :)

heroprotagonist3656d ago

All of that sounds incredible. Halo Reach is one of my top 3 games this year and it looks like it is going to be one incredible gaming experience. It already is looking amazing.

vhero3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

We shall see ODST was supposed to be massively better than Halo 3 and it certainly was not will Reach be better than Halo 3? Time will tell... Will probably be better than ODST though as that game didn't exactly set the bar high.. Sounds good though should be the new king of FPS games on 360 anyways. It will also sell bucketloads because of the Halo name and its on the number 1 shooter console.

@JonnyBadfinger - talking about milking with Killzone having 2 games out in 2 years?? Halo 3 2007, Halo Wars 2008, ODST came out in 2009 Reach out in 2010?? That's a 1 YEAR gap between each so use your head before you write. God you 360 fanboys make this crap easy. Killzone 3 wouldn't even be out this year if it was being made anyways..

bacon133656d ago

The game does look rather nice. Hopefully the guns don't feel and shoot like gigantic Tonka toys like in the previous Halo games.

Shepherd 2143656d ago

If you take the time to read the weekly updates, Bungie has stated that the current hud is yellow and difficult to see, but it will not be that way when the game releases. Just figured you should check up on every once in awhile since you seem to wanna take the time to make comments on N4G based on inaccuracy.

Motion3656d ago

"Knock it out the part Bungie!"

lol man:)
The expression is "Knock it out of the park", as in a "home run" ;)

DarkTower8053656d ago

From the ViDoc, Reach looks amazing. The lighting and particle effects are whaat Halo 3 and ODST should have been. I'm glad to see that there is a dev team out there like Bungie that is pushing the 360 hardware to it's limits.

I just wonder how many discs this game will be on?

gamer20103656d ago

I love the new lighting effects seen in the video. It looks so freaking awesome.

FamilyGuy3655d ago

But this

still doesn't hold a candle to that Metro game that's coming out for 360 soon.

GameGambits3655d ago

The game def. perked my interest and I'm not a Halo fan in anyway. It's about time Halo took some steps forward to go more next gen. I hope the beta isn't more of the same multiplayer, because I will pick up ODST to try it if people spread good word about it.

four million polygons + Halo 3 overall polygons count = haters owned!!

KingKiff3656d ago

LOLZ at ^^^^ Jack who???

Anorexorcist3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

God of War III + PS3 = Xbox 360 & Bots Owned Entirely!

starchild3656d ago

God of War 3 is graphically overrated. Look at those flat textures:
Good thing the art is good.

jack who3656d ago

here are sum game ill be too busy playing too care about GOW3 in the time frame it comes out

METRO 2033: The Last Refuge
Supreme Commander 2
Final Fantasy XIII

W831SOLIDSNAKE3656d ago

You're right! 4 million plus Halo 3's 50 thousand

You get a prize....... Another Halo!! Never seen that before

Trebius3656d ago

But at least they're improving a little bit.

Maybe by the end of the year they'll have a game that competes with UC1.

KingKiff3656d ago

Change your name to hardcore fanboy.

Pity you can't appreciate gaming as a whole and limit yourself to just one brand.

There is a big wide world of games out there other than MS brand.

Not saying they (MS) are bad, just open your mind to the rest of the world dude.

Anorexorcist3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

Those are all multi-platform, you'll only be busy playing what others without an Xbox 360 will be playing. You can't say that about God of War III.

Have as much of a great, unique 360 experience as you can get...however rarely that may be.

menoyou3656d ago

Remember how Geoff Keighley said the Halo: Reach trailer was going to blow us away and how the graphics were completely redone and when everyone saw the game it looked like Halo 3.5? Yea, not buying it this time either.

gamer20103656d ago

We don't have to take Bungie's word for it, we can see it with our own eyes. We have the trailer and screenshots and all of it looks brilliant. Halo Reach is going to be so amazing looking.

Cletus3656d ago

Its da power of teh Cell!

damm i got chills when i read this, sounds pretty amazing

Karooo3656d ago

they are really serious 4 million polygons is insane.

Fanb0y3656d ago

Heh, I never thought polygon counts made a huge difference to the overall look of the game, except in cutscenes.
