GamingBolt does an in-depth analysis of Halo reach. Click to read the preview.
Evolution or revolution I dont care. If its a good game I am going to be the first in the line. But judging by the 674P ending makes me feel this is not going to be the Halo I am waiting for.
SMH I feel sorry for those such as you , you all dont even game to enjoy the experience but to Troll ... its pathetic
How about we agree to disagree and say a little of both Evolution and Revolution.
Halo Reach looks to be running below 720P...Man this is the 7th generation of gaming!
you do realize that most games don't even run in 720p , hell MGS4 was below 720p and that didn't stop it from being a great game or most games really. Can someone even notice the difference from 620p to 720p?
of course kuro can notice...he counts every pixel to make sure its there before he starts playing /s
1152*720 is reach resolution is a improvement over Halo 3 which was 1152*640p. Not even that active Ai got tripled, Dynamic light sources increased tenfold. Bigger and opener levels. Better character models and animation. Even gameplay is complete different at the basis Reach has faster moving speed but the jump height is way lower. Armor abilities change up gameplay quit well.
Sept 14t! I can't wait!
i say its a mixture of both
Neither just the next Halo, nothing more nothing less
It's just Halo.
I just know that I´ll have a blast playing it come September 14th.
Man ive said it before but perfect gaming day. Halo: reach, some starcraft 2 and some world of warcraft. Maybe throw in a little mario galaxy 2 = perfection
I not Halo fan,but Reach its cool.I say,only evolution.Revolution maybe Halo 4 next xbox.
In this article there is a video of online gameplay. When the guy zooms in on his scope there's no smooth animation. There's no nice animation of raising the gun and looking through the lens. When he goes back to hip fire there's no animation either it just snaps back to the view. MAG took ALOT of flak for this in it's reviews - I fully expect the media to bitch about it in the Halo reviews too! Bet they don't even mention it ;)
Lmao well think about it, if Reach did do that, it would only get more praise and hype.
Is it possible for MS to hype Halo any more than it already does? Lol. I don't think so. A Halo game with a one hour long campaign and multiplayer with 4 player death match and a selection of one gun would STILL get more hype from American press than any other game ten times as worthy! @BELOW I know it's all hype! They're orgasming other trivial things. It's unbelievable!!
Ahh, but you've killed your own point. Who are you to determine what's worthy of praise and attention? Aren't the fans of the game the ones who determine that? You don't think it's worthy, that cool, but you're obviously in the minority as others do.
the scientific explanation for that is the guns link to the Spartans HUD, that's also the reason there is no zooming down the sight of a gun.
Spartans dont aim down sight. Their armor connects to a interface somewhere on the weapon that shows them where the bullets will go. The HuD in the helmet is where they do the aiming and zooming. It's all in the expanded universe which is awesome btw.
Thanks for the mature replies. That explains it. I didn't know their guns were linked to the HUD :) MAG's characters also had HUD connections to the weapons. LOL. Edit: Lmao i got a disagree for making a joke about mags crappy aim animation! Get a life people :(
Aaronon, I've tried to be polite, but it's clear to me that you really have no idea what you are talking about. Halo's HUD and Weapon integration is SUPPORTED by Halo Canon. MAG's is not. That was an actual flaw.
I didn't know it was connected. The posters above let me know and I thanked them for explaining. What are you going on about? Lol you're like 20 minutes too late! :D My "mag has the HUD too" was a joke about how it's aiming animation is crap and I was jokingly justifying the reason by pretending they had the same HUD as halo. I'm sorry you tool it seriously.
I say fuck reviews. Play the game yourself and make your own conclusion, so tired of hearing/seeing people refer to reviews or other peoples opinions in general about a game. Make up your own minds ha. If you dont dig a particular game then move on to the next one
If your really looking at graphics or animations as a deciding factor when backing or purchasing a game then you have lost your way my friend.
there are games like EDF that were still fun to play regardless of graphics. It's not about the graphics, it's about the game. If the game is good, I'll play it.
"Unlike all other Halo games before, the graphics of Halo: Reach seem to be outstanding." I LOLd at this. The graphics are great but they are not outstanding.
I just played the first 3 missions and 2 hours of firefight and to be honest.. saying the graphics are outstanding is an understatement. Bungie lived up to their word on the graphics with Halo Reach. I was going to buy the limited edition at first but after I played this masterpiece of epicness I'm going with the Legendary.
Halo Reach is looking sweet and it will revolutionize the video games world. Master Chief bring it on.
