Halo Reach trailer

Halo Reach trailer

It's at the ever dismal VGA Awards that Bungie decided to release the first trailer (after last year's E3 teaser) of Halo Reach. Rumors say that it's realtime, but I'll let you guys decide!

If this is representative of what the game will look like (Which might be since this is Real Time, using the game's Engine) then I must welcome the firt Technically Impressive Halo of this generation. Bravo.

No reason for it not to be real time. Anyways, I'm personally stoked, but will be disappointed if it doesn't adhere to the canon of the novel.

same old same old. still using same animations for the characters, why don't change to motion capture? It looks terrible.

^^ Oh, and in engine doesn't mean realtime...

Decent CG trailer.

This in-game trailer is well done

I am so glad I went to bed instead of waiting for this trailer last night. Anti-Climatic with literally no events to keep you interested or in the edge of your seat. Graphics, albeit very good, are still far from beating current games.

Realtime my ass!
Commented on 2009-12-13 10:54:04
eh. its whateva. they're just milking the Halo name.
Commented on 2009-12-13 10:56:56
This not CGI but its was in-game cut scene, because Bungie has never use CG in the game. I think its really cool, at least they used a new engine for halo franchise.

Looks realtime to me and not particularly good. At least the character models look less like Bungie's usual potato head style.

Still, nothing there to trouble the likes of Uncharted 2 or Gears of War 2. My interest in this game = almost zero.

Love it, nice and subtle. Could def be realtime, but most likely just in-engine
Commented on 2009-12-13 12:03:58
if you look at the some stills you can clearly see that it's in-engine and not that special, especially the textures. however, bungie obviously realized that good lighting is pretty important to achieve nice graphics!

Looks ok, nothing more. I can see some relics of old halo engines in there, the ground, what we can see of it reminds me very much of the mess of detail in H3.

Lighting looks impressive, but then so did the lighting engine used in cutscenes in 3. Cutscenes in 3 were about 10x more detailed than the actual ingame engine, hopefully they have fixed that disparity but i'm not holding my breath.

Until we see some proper footage of a compairson between the cutscenes and the actual game I'm gonna refuse to get excited any further.

IF and its a damn big IF, they can get that detail ingame rather than just in engine then I could see it matching up technically with a lot of other big hitters.
Thank god they at least put some effort and geometry in the damn head models this time though.

I'll buy it, regardless of how good it looks, because I'm a tard who can't resist the Halo series.

Chief is a rookie? I'm in!

Mt sabao what you just said is total nonsense. Those are by no means the same animations. What in god's name are you smoking :o

The animation is leaps over the stuff previously in Halo.

wonderful trailer, don't know, what some of you guys are drinking, but I'd stay far away from it. This looks much better than any Halo before and the lighting is simply beautiful. Texture quality has also been improved noticeably and just adds to the best playability everyone loves from this series.

And the lightning behind the clouds was breathtaking, very nice Bungee - welcome to Next-Gen, loved that big landscape at the beginning as well ;)

Sure-buy for me, because Halo always had the best AI I have ever experienced in an FPS. Of course this is only my humble opinion ;)

Looks brilliant.
Commented on 2009-12-13 12:51:38
I'm guessing that the trailer is perhaps a little prettier than the final game will be, but it looks good.
Commented on 2009-12-13 12:52:53
Blimey, people here have turned to such graphic whores. This trailer looks pretty dam good and please stop hating because its halo, most successful franchises get plenty of sequels and spin offs, just look at cod, mario, zelda, metroid, hell their's been 4 dmc games, 4 current gen ng games, then you have fighters like vf5, tekken 6 (5 got milked to death), doa4, street fighter 1 million this is nothing new. Anyway the trailer looked pretty dam good, and as always the music is top notch look forward to seeing more.

Side note:- I'm no halo fanboy I hardly play it, but I do appreciate Bungie's work and enjoy the sp and their music plus their are plenty of worst looking games than halo 3 etc.
Commented on 2009-12-13 12:53:23
Remember the first Halo3 trailer?

It was in-game but looked way better than the game itself.

So if bungie says that this one is not CG, they are prolly telling the truth, but if you expect the final game to look like this, you will be whining AGAIN when Reach comes out!

Marketing blabla is always bullshit, no matter from whom its coming!
Get used to it!
Commented on 2009-12-13 12:57:17
wow, that looked better than expeted. Halo is never going to have the detail of Gears and Uncharted because its so much bigger scale, but that trailer looked delicious.
Loved the "you can kiss that lone wolf mentality goodbye" bit, definately will be playing with other spartans all the way through it seems. maybe even some tactical controls...? either way, very pumped

dude, i mean same animation technique. compare these character animations to call of duty's for example. these non-motion-capture animations are so 10 years ago. everybody looks like puppets. terrible.
