Oh right, I forgot. 343 Industries.

Holy shit, when it started I thought that WAS the remastred version... Halo: CE remarkably holds up in almost every levels even 10 yers later, and then holy crap, switch to new age look.

These previous HDRemasters really set the bar low of what to expect in a HDmake.

I think you could quite easily argue that the game will feel altogether different as a result of these extra colour schemes- Halo1 had this very much lonely feel to it at times and that does come down to space and colour. Either way this particularly level looked gorgeous and i like how i can play different flavours of the game now

Hope they don't change Cortana's short hair in the visual update

And yes that's the thing i always get when i play Halo1, it does still stand up visually even today. Going back and forth bewteen the two is a bit unfair because what we're seeing is drastically different, rather than drastically better- both look great i think

So gonna rent this, might be fun blasting through again in co-op.

Man so much love and attention to detail, a true HD remake DAY 1!
Commented on 2011-08-18 01:46:00
I said it before, I'll say it again this is HOW YOU BLOODY do an HD remake inlike the lazy crap we're getting these days - I am looking at you Ubisoft!
Commented on 2011-08-18 01:51:33
It looks fantastic, day one!
Commented on 2011-08-18 02:06:26

Not every game companies want to put money and effort into a HD remake. Its understandable. I'm fine with HD ports.

I'm SO damn excited for this. I just played Halo CE with my nephew last month and seeing this is like brain explosion on high. I'm drooling for this remake! I may touch that 'back' button (how fitting, eh?) but for the most part- I'll be sitting there flashing back to 10 years ago with a Duke in my hand and an unbelievable "WTF?!?!?" look on my face. Now- all over again! I can't wait for this game- somebody leak more footage!!!! :-D

Hope they add in some fog to this level.It was a very moody section that first part to this level but now you can see perfectly in front of you and it loses it's original character. Replacing mood with pretty and so doing away with the ambience- when it's crucial for a part like this-, well it's a bit worrying

Not a game changer or anything, i am however currently slightly concerned.They surely can't have missed this defining aspect to how this part felt so i'm guessing they probably just wanted to show off how nice the engine can be.Put some bloody fog in

Please 343, don't ruin Two Betrayals by going mad and putting glowy christmas lights everywhere. Ah who knows, like i said originally, it's nice to have the two flavours i guess
Commented on 2011-08-18 09:08:27
The graphics got a alot nicer look than in Bungies own games IMO. This is what Reach should've looked like.
Commented on 2011-08-18 12:50:37
OMG - When I first started to watch the video I thought "this doesn't look very special"..............but when they switch to the new graphic mode my JAW hit the floor..............AMAZING, simply amazing.

Agreed. It's just too light. This level was pretty iconic imo due to the sudden change of mood. When they switch back and forth between the old and new graphics inside the building I think it's most apparent. Away is the nasty ambience and suddenly you're in a perfectly lit room without having to feel any fear of what's to come.
Commented on 2011-08-18 15:30:51
yeah fog.. agree, that was... peculiar.
aside from that, fan-fucking-tastic worth the ammount they want? fuck yes, and you cant give me that "other HD games you get more games" bullshit you get more games that have NOT been touched and if your like me still have (i still have halo:CE but the drastic difference between this and that is remarkable)

also you get reach Mp with all its maps (and dlc) plus added ones from Halo 1... now if only i could find where i read that before some dick shouts "SOURCE!"
Commented on 2011-08-18 15:36:38
SOURCE! I want source with these fries gosh darnit!

i don't have sound on my machine, but was that Halo 4 at the end there?
Commented on 2011-08-19 05:06:24
I'll say it again, I predict Halo 4 will be dual-engine so that it'll be compatible with and use the graphical capabilities of both the Xbox 360 and the next-gen Xbox. :D

About the game

    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (2 Hours ago)

    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (3 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (3 Hours ago)
