Halo 3: Official images

Halo 3: Official images

Bungie released these 6 official images from the beta of Halo 3. Their original resolution was 3840x2160, so they shouldn't be taken as an indication of the game's image quality. Not that it looks bad on my TV mind you.

Looks decent for a multiplayer game, but is the single player campaign going to look like this? Because that's quite underwhelming :\

Any game with split screen multiplayer has toned down graphics for that mode. It should look 2-4 times better when you're playing campaign. It looks great either way.

Sounds good, are there any shots of the SP mode?

Kinda weird, im getting a feeling that those graphics overall look better than gears. Maybe not from a technical standpoint but it has that something that makes it very pleasing to the eyes. Maybe it's the color palette that looks way better than the brown and grey games.

I need to add that no, im not a Halo fan. I just like the game.

The levels are much more open and allow more players so its apples and oranges

gears look the same split screen multiplayer or single player but I hope your right.

Luke Smith (previosly of 1Up) said when you see Halo 3 single player, you will say "Gears of what?"

Have faith, look at what Bungie achieved with Halo 2 on the much less powerful Xbox.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: I honestly did not hate that area :) (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: f*** blightown. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, there's some citing the frame drops as a stick to beat the game down with. Those people must not have had much fun back in the 5th and 6th gens. If they were around that is. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker it's in no way a dealbreaker for me. Hell....Dark Souls comes to mind with Blighttown and i still loved that area anyway. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker There hasn't been a word about visuals on Wii U yet but Edge mentioned some framerate problems when heavy weather effects happened, sometimes into the teens...hmm. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (2 Hours ago)
