It actually seems they almost hit the target render from the VGA trailer. Comparing from the Reach TV trailer the lens flare is back, the armor shines, and the shadows and particles is back.

Dude, the game looks good but don't expect a graphical benchmark, you'll end up disappointed.

T9X692983d ago

Considering how much content this game has compared to most games, I would say its pretty impressive.

gamer20102983d ago

Shut up FangBlade. You guys just can't stand that there are amazing looking games on the 360 too. All things considered Halo Reach is one of the better looking games on consoles.

DirtyLary2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

In the end, it's still on the XBOX. Game will own regardless.
Can't wait for some DMR Swat.

Please gamer2010 it is funny how you have to say "all things considered"

The scorched surface of Reach followed by Noble 6's helmet laying there, visor cracked, was a pretty powerful scene to me.

.. wut?! lol, holy crap. this game makes it fans like total blind sheep willingly. what graphical bench mark? and i thought halo wasnt about graphics but teh gameplay and features :/

for a game that sold far more than any fps ever in gaming history, i find it pathetic that its fans don't demand they take the gazillions of $$ they made off them and make the game a technical and grahical powerhouse.

look at that, really? thats supposed to be "OMG HAWT!!!!"?! sad what halo fans will put up with all for the name of halo.

call it trolling all you want. it's my opinion on this game and it's franchise and i will always state my opinion. halo is an average decent fps hyped to hell by marketing. if you like it then good but calling it "godly" is delusional crap. so many fps are far ahead of halo in graphics, story, gameplay and teacnicals and don't make half the sales it does. crazy

Johnny_Bravo2983d ago

Marketing don't keep people playing a game for 3 years after its been out. You can market or hype a game all you want, if I don't like it, I'm not going to play it. Honestly I think you're just jealous the PS3 doesn't have a huge successful FPS with hundreds and thousands of gamers playing daily.

starchild2983d ago

You are just another delusional PS3 fanboy branwashed by Sony's ridiculous hype and marketing.

You know what? The multiplayer Killzone 3 trailer looked like crap. The graphics were NOT impressive. The colors were muddy, the textures were nothing special, it didn't seem to run that smooth, and the whole thing looked blurry. It just wasn't impressive. The other Killzone 3 videos have looked a lot better, but even then they look no better than Killzone 2.

Halo Reach has great textures, lighting, effects, and it runs smoothly. It has large open environments with way more stuff happening in the air and on the ground than in most shooters. Yes, Halo Reach is a technical powerhouse, you are just too ignorant to realize it.

hell is this guys problem

CernaML2983d ago

lol @ starchild.

He didn't mention Killzone 3 at all. Why make yourself look like a butthurt 360 fanboy?

LunaticBrandon2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

Marketing and being overhypeded kept me playing Halo 2 for 2.5 years and Halo 3 for 3 years? Being a graphical and technical powerhouse doesn't mean shit if a large amount of people only end up playing the game for 6 months or less. Halo 3 is still going strong and people literally had to be pried away from Halo 2 after 5 years. Halo: Reach packs enough content and customization to be outplayed by its preprocessors which already had 3+ year lifespans. Halo is defintely far ahead of other FPS in terms of story, content, techicals and gameplay, keep your graphics. 60 AI and 20 vehicles on screen is going to be Epic. Scarabs are back and bigger. The AI is very cunning. Map editor that allows map creation, Theater, Full customizable survival mode with versus, fully customizable multiplayer, customizable campaign that's very open and sandboxy, matchmaking with huge variety that supports user created content, show me a console FPS that beats this on any level other than graphics. Hope you enjoy whatever it is you're play, I know I'll enjoy what I have been playing and will continue to play and enjoy for years with this next installment in an amazing series. Its ok, Bungie's next game will be multiplatform and you will be able to enjoy it with all of its Halo influences without actually admitting your playing and enjoying Halo. The graphics don't even look bad, just not #1. The variety of color and all the effects from plasma, covie tech, MJOLNIR armor, explosives, bullets, etc all make the game very pleasing to the eye, just not photorealistic.

talltony2983d ago

Because He is! I have delt with him a few times in the past. He just doesnt learn.

mrcash2983d ago

It's clear that you don't like the game, which is fine. My question to you, is, why are you in here? The title of this article mentions that it's about halo. Story and gameplay are all just an opinion buddy so don't try and pass it off as fact. While there fps with better graphics, I have yet to see an fps on consoles thats as big as halo3 was, and yes that includes killzone2. Reach looks even larger which is very impressive.

Omega2983d ago

Do you have a link to all those features you said that reach has? I know it does but im trying to look for it.

Halo Reach is one of the best looking games this gen...PERIOD. It is shocking how clear and crisp the graphics are in Reach, although in this video it's hard to tell because of the video quality. Funny moment when at the end he stops to look out over the landscape and draw distance. I bet he could talk for an hour on why and how difficult it is to achieve that level of detail...stunning. Releases on September 14, M$ is killing it this year.

BTW...for those debating to watch it...go ahead...the video quality is so bad that it won't matter. On a big screen with a solid sound system, this game will kick a$$ glasses

Convas2983d ago

Damn damn damn! The spoilers are already coming in hot and heavy. I want to see so badly, but I must practice self-control. GAHHHH!

Day one! September 14!

HarryMonogenis2983d ago

I don't know if I should watch the video. :S

Strikepackage Bravo2983d ago

on whether to watch it or not, DO NOT, it totally ruins the beginning, when you do play it you will not have that OMG Im here feeling the first time you play because you will have seen this already.

Having said that, it looks good but its hard to tell how good cuz the video is crappy, not even worth ruining the experience for. All we can tell from watching it is everything is very lifelike, trees and plants and even the movements of the Spartans are smooth and true to life, makes Uncharted look even more like claymation than it already does.

GiggMan2983d ago

Totally agree with you...

Until that last part anyways.

Strikepackage Bravo2983d ago

a rip on Uncharted, perhaps I should have been more clear. I think Uncharted is the best looking console game available right now; however, it has a claymation look to it, everything looks as if it is made of clay, the environment, the characters, all of it, like one of those claymation Christmas specials from the 50s. Great looking, just not realistic looking, nor are the movements, they are stiff and a tad jerky.

REACH looks smooth and life like, not necessarily better than Uncharted overall however.

pork_chop_express2983d ago


mate, the cutscene rendering engine of reach has some nice lighting when the game starts it disappears dont delude yourself by bringing other games into it, the actual gameplay graphics engine of reach is not impressive at all.

Dont watch this vid though it does spoil the opening.

ATLGAMER2983d ago

This game looks like crap compared to Geow, Killzone2 , Uncharted 2 and Bulletstorm..

Jeremy Gerard2983d ago

Killzone 2 should not be on that list, that games's graphics were WAAAY overhyped, Ive played it and it looks like COD4.

starchild2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

No it doesn't. The animation is great, the lighting is great, the textures are great (look at the rocks and ground textures), the scale is immense....I mean honestly how is that not a very impressive game?

@Jeremy Gerard

I agree with you, Killzone 2 was way overhyped. It looked good, but not nearly as good as the fanboys try to say. The textures were mediocre and most of it felt like a corridor shooter.
