Four screenshots of Halo ODST

Bungie and Microsoft release four brownish images of Halo 3: ODST, the next Christmas blockbuster from the creators of Halo. We're not really excited. Are you ?

Will this also expand on the multiplayer?

Nope, but I might be for the Reach beta...depending on how that turns out.

looks much better than expected, and also much dirtier. What happened to that neon color looks? I really didn't expect so much brown, grey and black.

Not all that much excited I can't sit down... but Bungie always delivers very solid Halo games, so I'll probably play this too - and multi for months to come.
Wonder how the whole hub world and narrative will work.

Anyone know when we can expect to see Reach?

Nope, hope to see some footage soon?!

I believe the beta was scheduled for January 2010? Or did I make that up?

visually it's very beleow par, which given the halo name and it's "uberness" you'd think they'd pull out all the stops for something like this...but alas, it looks like halo 3, complete with aliasing.

i really do not like the whole colour outline either. graw did it, and it made sense. here it doesnt. why would some lowly ODST's have that sort of tech built into their visor, yet the cheif....who is esentially the be all and end all of soldiers in this world, doesnt have anything of the sort? plus it looks rediculous anyway. far too obtrusive.

really not interested in this game at all. looks like what it actually is, a really expensive expansion pack.

i wish they stopped with the spin-off/addon deals with Halo and just make a brand new game like Halo 4 but a new graphics engine and everything.

I want the exitement back that I had when I got my first xbox with Halo, and was completely in love with the game.

Why is the game so dark and low-saturated/monochromatic? :\

The warpaint on the helmet is a great touch...

Look very interesting I can't wait ^0^ but graphic engine it's look common. As far as I know. Bungie they're ever said HALO : ODST It's kind of the open world game. It's really great^^ I want to see it .

Not excited for this game but I ant to play the Reach beta (whenever it comes out). Guess I'll hold back and buy it later. There are too many good games releasing at the same time...

Not intrested one bit, but maybe enough to type that.
Commented on 2009-06-26 18:07:38
The graphics are so, so, so outdated.
Commented on 2009-06-26 18:32:48

So all you ' lol 'Not excited'not good for you ;outdated' Have a good day :D
Commented on 2009-06-26 18:45:26
not excited but if you can really put things on your helmet like the skull teeth in the first pic .then at least it show signs of something different tough not much.
Commented on 2009-06-26 19:29:32
hard to get excited by looking at it, that's for sure.

A. the otlining is a mode of the visor.
B. its not more advanced than master chief its just different, they have this and a silenced smg because they need it their not packing shields and advanced weapons and strength etc hence they get gadgets.

C. their not "lolely osdt" OSDT are like special forces, this just shows you know nothing of halo, their are regular marines, and fighters then their are their bad a$$ guys and then their are the OSDT, basically the human equivilent of specops hence the gadgets and advanced tech.

D. yes we all would like a brand new game, hence thats what REACH is and will be next year.

E. The graphics are not poor, just because their tiny doesnt mean anything, in fact im a little surprised to see such a shift from halo 3's brightness to the gloomier settings of the images, but as was said you cant really tell quality since its such crappy copies that have been released so far but expect it to be onpar with halo 3 since its build on that engine....

and last but not least

F. WTF are you all complaining about, why is it that graphics seem to be all people consider, the games are fun, people enjoy the hell out of their MP and SP, yet you guys still sit here and bash it, the fact is i can almost gaurantee a million preorders easy for this because people love halo.
Commented on 2009-06-26 19:52:40
well, it has better graphics than MAG at least...although, not many of the other big titles revealed recently

C - compared to master chief (who i was comparing them to in the first place if you just read my comment properly) the ODST are lowely soldiers. putting an ODST next to the chief is like putting a regular human next to superman.

E - the graphics ARE poor, that is blatantly obvious both in these screenshots, the footage that has been shown and the photomode shots that where released a while ago, the simple fact it looks like halo 3 (which you yourself admit) is the reason for the negative comments about the visuals. graphics have moved on since halo 3, and seeing as halo 3 wasnt anything speciel when it was released, people expected an upgrade, and a significant one at that, this a first party, massively popular franchise. and yet visually the thing looks about on par with a game like 50 cent. it's a sad sight to see.

F - as i've mentioned many a time. it's hard to comment on anything besides the graphics when all we have is footage and screenshots. i'm sure the game will play well, and it will of course sell millions becasue of the name attached to it, but all we have is still images. we cant judge those elements based on screenshots...it's impossible, and so we look at the visuals. and in this case, the visuals are piss poor.
