The Real Science of Halo: Reach

GamePro writes: "We reach out to respected professionals in the scientific community including jet pack engineers, plasma researchers, mechanical engineers, and the scientific advisor on Battlestar Galactica to get at the truth behind the fiction".

The story is too old to be commented.

I agree to a point.....The jetpacks are impossible only with a new powerful source of energy that doesn't run out easily which has not been discovered... Basically everything is possible because the tech hasn't been invented yet making this article very pointless....Its like all sifi shooters the tech and people in them are possible but haven't been invented or seen yet.

Show me a working jetpack that is used today by the military.

Halo takes place in 2525 in the freaking future and you dorks are going to argue about 2010?

I'm pretty sure if humans survive long enough they will have that jetpack bug fixed 500+yrs from now.

Nothing from Halo is realistic HDgamer because it's a game that takes place in 2525. You know a 2 and a 5 followed by another 2 and a 5?

You fail... hard

Last time I checked Reach wasn't aiming for realism, just fun.

It's a video game.... Don't even try to say it is real.

Regardless of the medium, it's still science fiction. Haven't you ever seen any of those TV shows that discuss the science (if any) behind Star Wars and Star Trek? It's kind of an interesting topic. A lot of things are theoretically plausible, including lightsabers and plasma shields.

about as real as this picture.

The most realistic thing in Halo: Reach would be something like this.





Yep. Running at 1080p. I couldn't find a capture card set anywhere for the time being, so I just took some off my phone :/
