This collection with all of the extra content sets a benchmark where the term "remastered" is used. Its just an epic package! I cannot wait!!

When Dan said ranks I literally danced around my room. We need to fast-forward to November NOW!

Looks so underwhelming. Honestly. It looks kinda bad. Blurry low quality ambient occlusion and a really low level of detail in terms of both the environments and character models. The scaling of them that is. Up close they look good, but at just a bit of a distance...ugh. I want to see how Halo 3 and 4 stack up.

I'm done with Halo. There's no way i'm going to buy the same games over and over and over again.

This is how you properly do a remaster! Do you see these visuals?!?! They've taken Sanctuary to a new level. And the menu system looks killer.

Why were you buying them over again before? One re-release does not make "over and over."

Really? It looks fine. There's only so much you can do while sticking with the original game underneath.
In some ways I kind of expect Halo 3 to look the worst of the bunch, because it's just higher resolution and framerate for that one. This looks better than a fair number of current gen games which is impressive for a game that is basically a shell over an original Xbox game.

h1 anniversary and h4 are also just running in higher fps and res. it's only h2 that's getting the remake treatment. and it looks decent but I did expect it to look better.

h1a on 360 looked great. didn't seem scaled back running the original engine in the background. and the engine will be even less of an impact on the x1. so really I would expect it to look better

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
