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

    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (4 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (4 Hours ago)
