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.

    GriftGFX FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The Orville episode 3 was amazing. Very heavy topic but handled it extremely well. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (4 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (4 Hours ago)
