Halo 3: Believe

Halo 3: Believe

Microsoft has finally unveiled the ad that will be used during the marketing blitz up until the launch of Halo 3. It's very original, and quite well done too.


Believe

I love how they did this trailer. I hope the game has some sort of "Making of" of this, because I would love to check it out.


Edit: Blim, you should really cut out the useless posters who just go for the first post, and have nothing to even say about that matter. It's not a contest people, sheesh.

AWESOME! Great ending. I found myself uncontrollably laughing at the first commercial. This one is much better.

There is a mock of a "making of" it shows them making it but the narration is done so that it fits in more with the advert

Mock "making of" can be found here:

very well done, now if only the real game was that crazy...like a proper war...oh well.

If anything i feel put off by this drivel. To me it just feels way too serious, they need to get their heads out of their asses and stop being so pretentious. They market this like it's the second f***ing coming or something. It's freaking game, not a blessing from above :P

lol, true, but blame tha fans for that. bungie just make a pretty straight forward FPS...its the fans that hype it to be something more. now all bungie are doing it catering to those people. if halo fans see the second coming....then why shouldnt bungie market it as such?

does this ad not suggest the cheif is going to die tho...kinda spoilerific.

Personally, being a psych major and watching this commercial.. It was just brilliantly made. Bravo..Bravo. GO CHIEF!! FINISH THE FIGHT!

This is how videogame ads should be done. I loved how they used Chopin's "Raindrop" prelude as the music . 9/10
Commented on 2007-09-14 23:48:49

get their heads out of their asses, no wonder gamers and games are still not taken seriously my the masses with comments like that ! i would rather see adverts like this, more mature adverts rather than in your face gfx cgi whore, yea your so cool if you buy x and y game type of advert....pull you own head out of your own ass ffs !

harry potter is only a book, star wars is only a fucking film, ledzep IV is only a fucking album, the sex pistols were only a fucking band.....didnt stop them changing peoples lives....think about it !

thanks for the down load blim , awesome advert

Could'nt agree more.

This teaser is great. But not for the visuals, nor the context.

The slow pace and music by Chopin is what made it great. We are fed up with all the heavy sound effects and logos jumping up in your face. The advanced CGI displaying monsters and ghouls being chopped down in one second clips is getting just as tedious. That deep trailer voice saying: "They are back!" makes me puke.

I want to see more of this stuff.

For gods sake, it's just a game like cd with music is just cd with music, yes. I bet halo 3 will be a great game but good lord, don't you find this ad to be full of itself? Some self distance isn't going to kill halo, you know? Also, if halo 3 changes anyones life i'd be pretty freaking amazed...at elast if it changes it for the better :P

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (46 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
