@BelmontWolf I'm talking purely the graphics, they aren't current gen 360 graphics is all. Obviously I love the GAME engine I just meant that the graphics still seem a little dated. IMO of course :)
cant wait for this game, I just wish they would update the Halo engine a little, the human character models still look like they are first generation 360 graphics, not current gen ala Enslaved etc..... sigh. still it will be awesome to play the original again in co-op online campaign
I welcome all remakes, given they are prices reasonably ($10-$20). Maybe have a deal where if you mail in the UPC of the original game and get $ off. Remakes give me a fresh reason to play a game over again and experience something different. I'll prob pick this up. Wouldn't spend more than $20 for it. Hey, was Joe Satriani in the room while you recorded your voice-over?
why is is when ever i watch a video on gamespot ive got to watch 15 seconds advertising of another game that im not even slightly intrested in. sort it out gamespot or i'll just stick to youtube. like if you agree fellow game dudes and dudesses
@-Silent--Death- If your talking about milking you might want to look at Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Sonic, Madden and so on. It's not always such a bad thing as long as you keep it fresh. The problem with CoD is that it really hasn't changed that much since CoD 4 and the story has never been really that stong (certain events yes but overall no). With Halo it has an immersive story line that expands further then just the game and people love the way it plays so they didn't see a reason to change the mechanics all that much. But with Reach they did change the way it played alot and you can see that some people hated it, though it didn't seem that bad to me.
@couchtater12345 Sadly yes I was hoping to lay my hands on the proper fuel rod gun not that stupid rocket launcher clone from halo2
So let me get this straight, they remake the oldest Halo games and then take out its iconic multiplayer and give it the s****** multiplayer from the newest P.O.S Halo?
@Stinger78 Dude, the reason it is 40 bucks is because it comes with 6 multiplayer maps as well. The multiplayer part is from the halo reach engine, but you do not need the halo reach game to play it. Plus one firefight map. Oh yeah and also you can now play the campaign over xbox live co-op.
@DrKill09 I was reading along like okay this guy just didn't like Halo I can understand that... Then you said it was over rated like Half Life 1. That is where you lose all credibility and any respect. Please keep your opinions to yourself in the future.
Wow, 10 years. Gonna be nice to revisit the game that kicked my love affair with sci-fi up a notch. Until The Library, of course.
I remember playing Beaver Creek with friends and we'd all try and make a run for that rocket launcher above the river. Good times.
Was a major fan of Halo when it was first released, this looks pretty good but its just a polish up really. Personally I didn't like the idea that 343 had announced they were making another trilogy, we could end up having another Call of Duty fiasco, it will probably end up going to far.
Graphics look nice, a bit colorful, but whats up with the animation?!?!?!.Their movments look weird and overemphasized, and the Jaws on them could kill a Grunt. Im still gona get it but if this is a start to what 343 and MS have in store with Halo it doesnt look good.
I remember when this series reigned supreme and games like COD and BF3 weren't even in the picture..... *sigh* those were the days....
Just great a video preview for a HD remake ? If this gets a gs score but not Ico and sotc collection i will be piss as hell .
@Stinger78 [quote]While I have been a fan of Halo since the beginning and spent countless hours playing multiplayer on the PC version, I can't help but feel the price of $40 is just too high for a new coat of paint. There have been other "HD Remakes" and if they've proven anything, it's that $20 is the 'sweet spot' price point they should be hitting, along with availability over XBLA, rather than, what I assume to be simply a retail/disk-based release.[/quote] It has added a bit to the game and implemented additional net coding to run the original physics engine over live with co-op. It sounds ridiculous that this is only worth $20. Actually, it IS ridiculous. The $40 price tag is only $10 over a Platinum hit and they've put a lot of work into this (including audio, story additions, new skulls, newly developed engine, ect).

This is tangential to the video but why do the MW3 ads say "the most anticipated game in history"? Sure there are a ton of ads but the actual sense of anticipation or hype feels weak. Point is, its not legally false advertising but its wrong, cause I feel like MW2 had more hype than that game, not to mention some of the hyper anticipated games of old. (e.g. Halo 2)
@billlabowski Wow, you willing to torrent this and still don't want it on the PC, when I first bought Halo and Halo 2 at GamePortalMalaysia, I willing to spend a full price tag on this game cause I seen its potential, but now look at this and you finally discovered there is no longer a point to have any more halo game, cause its an Xbox360 exclusive, and I only played the Reach once on my friends who do owned a Xbox360 Black, which to said so much for spending money on the PC and upgrade VISTA for a game that dump us for real.......hate me if you like, but thought of exclusive just makes limited their game potential and willingness to create a whole new game any further......
@BionicBrando HaloCE is more like a supermodel from 10 years ago that doesn't look quite as good as the new fresher models out there. But you got to admit, You'd still hit that.
@ amplex007, Halo CE is like an elderly woman. Just because you give her a facelift doesn't mean she'll look like a supermodel, but she does looks ALOT better though.
