The Gadget Show's Jason Bradbury has said that Halo Reach is "much more realistic than ODST", claiming that the game is "louder" and more detailed than its predecessor, before comparing its visuals with Killzone.
I LOVVVE the Halo Series but Reach is not as good graphically as KZ2. No chance. Good thing that Reach will dominate KZ2 in every other important facet of a game. That's not too hard though.
Reach still looks fantastic though, can't wait to see what they show at E3 =]
Ya, but the guy didn't say that Reach looked as good as Killzone 2, just that it was more like it in terms of sound. The comparison is not arguing that Reach is better-looking than Killzone 2 or better overall, it's just saying that Reach is more like KZ2 and not like ODST.
Bungie has never been about graphics. It has always been gameplay first. Just look at all the things they introduce to the multiplayer component. Soo many different modes of games and etc.... Game play first is also my preference.
modern warfare 2 had a longer and better campaign
I dont care or expect HaLo ReAcH's graphics to compare to KZ2. But thats all KZ2 has afterall. Clunky controls = mediocre experience, mind-numbing story, repetitive enemies with no variation, mediocre AI, ***NO CO-OP, no vehicles, & a MP that shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as HaLo. Start crying now 'Sony Only' folks, because the Kill Zone series will never be in the same league as HaLo. Only fanboys think KZ2 is sooooo great, lolz, I played it for a month & traded it in. Eye Candy for sure, but everything else about the game was rather average. If you want to talk about a great game on PS3 with a decent MP component, Uncharted 2 is it hands down. But even Uncharted cannot touch HaLo MP features, precise controls, or popularity with GAMERS.
i think it's all perspective when you talk about fun and gameplay . but to bash a game without playing it is just plain ignorant and dumb . you're on N4G for godsake . you get flame even if you speak the obvious truth , let alone an ignorant comment . to me fans of the game and shooters fan , kz2 nailed the control that they want . no more run n gun . talk about precise : more precise than auto-aim , im sure . halo 3 actually has auto-aim , for your info . take a battle rifle and see for yourself . not as much as MW2 , but it's still there . there are vehicle in the campaign , it's just short .there are plenty of enemy and bosses ( they are HARD ) . the AI in kz2 is top of any shooter on the market , par none . you shoot it , it moves and actually hide from your view . when you reload , they can hear it and actually move to expose your cover . much better than the sitting ducks in MW2 . the MP is not as fun as halo 3 or MW2 , i cant say that for sure . i enjoyed it for 2 months , that's it.though i find that kz2's active game mode switching is brilliant and many games should do that . i respect your opinion , @lord vader . i enjoyed halo 3 and MW2 too , and i played it on the 360 . the party system on 360 is great and it's such a bummer that the ps3 doesnt have it . anyway , all im trying to say is that Reach doesnt have to have killzone2's graphic . halo has a different style than kz . as long as reach's graphic is anywhere from acceptable to great , im happy . so far , all the features in reach sounds great . making games should not be about putting everything that any competitor has into your game . it should be about creating wat nobody have done before , something fun . im not a fanboy , tho im a bit crazy for typing a rant this long trying to taking sense with fanboys on N4G .
As far as being up to snuff when it comes to Killzone 2; he has seen and played the game first hand. I think he would have a better opinion on this matter than we would. The other interesting thing is that the Beta WON'T be the final build. Expect better visuals and gameplay in the Fall.
What's with all the Killzone hate? Different strokes for different folks, people. I prefer Killzone to Halo, but Halo games are still good.
But claiming more realism is quite absurd... Just saying
well in real life it takes 1 bullet in the head to kill a guy while in kz2 it takes a DAZILLION BULLETS to kill anyone
Wow, dazillion is a much smaller number than I thought ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watc... Head shots are still 1 hit kills, they're just really hard to pull off in multiplayer.
mmmm so Reach is graphically better than Killzone 2? WOW "But killzone 2 is possibile only on PS3!!!!1111!" Ouch.
Funny how all FPS are now being compared to Killzone 2, imagine what Kizzy 3 will do Edit: whats going on with the comments, I could have sworn mine was deleted
lol Odion, the mod bot cant face the truth sad little bot Halo is trash
Killzone 3? lol apparently someone knows something we don't yet...
It's nice to see mods being stricter on Halo articles. Now for Crytek articles please. It's obvious Reach is much 'realistic' than previous entries - although I think that's the wrong word to use. It definitely feels less floaty and cartoony and much more gritty. I think the tech is sounding really impressive. The amount of stuff they claimed can be rendered on screen at once, along with AI, is absolutely crazy and will allow for some memorable fights. I really value 'sandboxy' styled gameplay, where eaach time you play a scenario plays a bit differently than before. That's why I'm enjoying Conviction as well. 13 days will the beta. B*tch.
I need access to the beta. I really hope ODST isn't the only way. Dammit, I should have kept ODST instead of selling it for #3.
You should seriously keep an eye out for the beta key giveaways.
I think the only way to get into the beta is to have odst. They haven't talked about any other way in... yet.
If you played halo 2 before they shut it down, they offered MS points and an invite to the beta.
I agree. Saying Halo is realistic is like saying Star Wars is realistic. They don't really match.
"It's obvious Reach is much 'realistic' than previous entries - although I think that's the wrong word to use" And there we have a winner. I would say that Reach so far looks like it will have a more serious graphical tone, and I hope a less arcadey gameplay too (although I loved Halo 1 regardless). If anything should be to more or less realistic are games that are, at least, based on real setting like COD or BF... I for one prefer to restrain the word for tactical shooters like GRAW, Rainbow Six, Operation Flashpoint and SOCOM.
What? There is nothing realistic about Halo at all. Pointless comment is pointless.
From the vids I have seen so far, what they did improve on is the attention to detail. Personally it doesn't look very much realistic to me. If any realistic FPS are out there it'd be Killzone 2 for player movement, gun control (sniping across maps is harder than you think, takes timing), enemy AI. Fear series for enemy AI. BF2 for gravity effect on long distant shots. Some unrealistic FPS, what i like to call twitchers, would be Reach based on what ive seen in the videos Bungie has shown. I'm not sure about the previous Halos, but its safe to say that they too must be like Reach or similar since they are older (cant see howd youd make a game less realistic). Also Resistance series and games like Fallout 3. Out of all I'd have to say Killzone 2 has the most realism for a FPS. Unless o course theres another game out there I havn't played that is a more realistic FPS.
Yea, more realistic than unrealistic? Still unrealistic.
that halo 3 sucks. but the masses disagree. look at its 94 metacritic and look at how many people still play it.
lots of people play both killzone 2 and uncharted 2 i actually played both of em yesterday...but why does everything have to be about multiplayer?
Halo cannot look as good as Killzone. That's mental
But it does.
Uhhhh no, it doesn't.
fine it doesnt look better but Reach is more of a game than kz2 doublefold despite being on dvd9. kz2 multiplayer isn't even close to matching the features and content of halo 3 and single player for kz2 was short and pointless. at least in reach theres Co op.
This is the quote from the article. "Would say the Reach much more earthy, realistic than ODST. Weapons v realistic, louder, more detail like Killzone 3," He doesn't say it's better or worse than KZ2, just that it's similar. He takes nothing away from Killzone.
seems like ps devs push ms dev to try harder more then ms fans
Killzone is a fantastic game. Stop downplaying it just to make Reach look good. Reach looks like it can stand on its own merits, and is looking like a massive improvement over its predecessor, which is always good to hear.
Halo Reach "much more realistic than Metroid Prime 3" ODST is trash. Fixed.
First it was Metro 2033 teh best graphic eva then Splinter Cell Conviction teh best graphic eva then Alan Wake teh best graphic eva and now Reach teh best graphic eva LOL Just wait until Reach's released with sub-hd like the rest. bu bu teh gameplay bu bu teh sales bu bu teh pixels don't matter You guys never learn, do you? ;)
So shooting pink and red laser's is realistic now?
sigh.....cause Killzone 2 is just like normal everyday war IT'S A VIDEO GAME WHICH MEANS IT'S NOT REAL....caps over Seriously, if you don't wanna play the game, then why follow it other than you got nothing better to do...you don't see me on news I don't want to play or follow Oh and no that's not realistic, just like the whole freaking game's setting isn't....no aliens trying to invade Earth's colonized planets last time I checked but it's still one hell of a fun time to play
Do you understand what 'more' realistic means. No one said Reach was realistic - Two completely different things there. How about reading the article properly.
Thats not saying much though if they use ODST as a reference.
im like bad reference halo is far from any sort of the sense of realistic. Also after I seen the gameplay vids of bodys flying 3 feet in the air after being killed idk what is so realistic about that. More detail doesnt = realistic and even if it did they are FAR from meeting KZ2 in that department or any ps3 exclusive for that matter.
cuz lazer guns r reel n stuf
Reading Comprehension for the lose!!! He said it is more realistic than ODST, he didn't say it is realistic!
you cant say something is more realistic when its not even realistic in the first place.
Yes you can, GTA isn't a realistic series but GTAIV was definitely more realistic than the previous GTA games. Video games will never be realistic, but that does not mean they cannot have realistic aspects either.
Has a ton of more realistic elements than Halo you cant even compare the two lol and GTA4 is 1 of the most realistic games I played this gen. Halo reach will not reach any sense of that status.
He wasn't comparing Halo to GTA IV. Some people I swear...
Reading Comprehension for the lose!!!
whats realistic about shooting lasers in space?
seriously, that's a good point why didn't I think of that?
There is only one weapon in the Halo series that fires a laser, the Majority of the series weapons fire projectiles (Bullets, Buckshot, etc) and Superheated Plasma.
smart man richard919
HDGamer, you're lame. Seriously. I suppose you think God of War 3 is realistic. Sheesh, freakin fanboys!
Get off this Kevin Butlers jock with all this pew pew trash talk. If you guys think that is funny I feel for ya. It's called being a sore loser and spouting nonsense because your losing. Now go pew on that hd troll.
You mentioned god of war 3 for what reason and how am I losing again because you can't stand the pretty colorful laser being a realistic set tone?
Look up 747 laser; it's really really super realistic but not as cool as a Spartan laser.
Too many nitwits here. Realistic is representing what is real. Is read a green lasers (or whatever color) the only component in Reach? The mo-cap for one gives the human characters more realistic movement compared to the other Halos. Is it real? No, but is certainly more realistic. Like what jdktech2010 said, the Spartans can no longer jump like the Hulk. They can no longer dual-wield rifles. Those alone make Reach more realistic.
And here we go yet again with another attempt from Sony clowns trying there best to hate on 360. Funny thing is no matter how much they hate there is nothing they can do to stop this onslaught of games coming to 360 this year alone. 2010 is the year of 360 and the end of Sony PS3 until they announce the PS4 at E3.
I will be really happy if in Halo Reach you can see armor being destroyed/shot off/deformed in combat. Having armor customization will be more realistic if you can actually interact with it rather than just for looks. Not letting noobs be owned by powerful armor is understandable, but for cosmetic only annoys me more. At least make armor react to projectiles when the shield is down would satisfies realistic by my book. I don't expect Halo to delivers in that aspect. The Brutes' armor breaking off in single player for example. I would like that happening online with different armor types.
Realistic? mhh... Ahhhh yep! There're Power Rangers!
