linear games = following a set path, non-linear = free roam sandbox sounds like a ridiculous term to use neway the graphic engine looks really good. too bad consoles r WAY behind when it comes to that. all i gotta say is Crysis 2 will BLOW away the competition when it comes to graphics.

all sandbox means is u dont hav to fallow a pre set path like call of duty or somethin wer u can only go one way, but like... battlefield (sorta) where you can go more than one way in a mission mayb threw the river, the woods, acorss the bridge, or mayb just along the dirt road like COD might force u to go down the road (or if ur lucky) u might get to choose the bridge

Seriously, what exactly is a "sandbox" video game?

@georgeww When I asked what a "sandbox" game was, I meant video games! What r u stupid? Why the hell would I talk about sandbox's on a video about a video game. And if u DID know I was talking about video games, then **** off! I don't know what a sandbox video game is, at least I don't sit in my moms basement all day ripping on people who don't know what a specific video game term means...

@DFBTG These are games, we play them for good gameplay dynamics. If a game comes with a good story then that's great, if not who cares? If you want a good story go read a book or watch a movie. We're targeted gamers and we want games.

"It's a much more human story." So how about instead of 'invest[ing] significantly in higher fidelity models, much more open environments, [and a] larger number of AI ever before in a Halo game', you invest significantly in a well told and well developed, non-generic, story and characters. How does all that crap make a human story? I don't get it. I though good storytelling and believable, multidimensional characters made a human story. Or am I getting 'good' and 'human' mixed up? This, my friends, is my problem with Halo.

More graphic detail went into the assault riffle then what was in the military from the previous halo. It'll be purty

The graphics and AI look great. I just hope they keep roughly to the book, because the fall of reach was a great book.

He's right it was epic in the beginning but unfortunately that was before they started milking the hell out of a used title. I just want them to stop before they really destroy the Halo title because like he said it will be the destruction of a truly fantastic game.

True, the textures make the game feel more down to earth real, but still capture's the super human feel of a spartan. Kinda excited.

this game sounds like it will be awesome, and this is coming from a ps3 owner, though i do find it a little bit ironic and sad that a large number of people who will play this game won't be familiar with bungie's inspiration for the game, Seven Samurai, Magnificent Seven

...does this mean the game will actually be 720p this time? If I remember correctly, Halo 3 only rendered geometries in 540p... which looked terrible. Maybe they'll have some decent anti-aliasing this time around, too.

if this is going to be like half a full game and is still going to be worth sixty dollars like odst, then i dont think im gonna get it

@Fernin-Ker I am not going to argue about the subject I know almost nothing about. The thing is don't you find it strange that BUNGiE are using Quicktime while running Windows? What can be the reason?

Avatar image for Fernin-Ker

@AvtoC There's likely a few using a PC instead, but by and large most devs do most of their work on Macs.

One question: What is a "sandbox" video game? Could someone please tell me, because I don't know!

I really hope firefights in this game. Firefight was a great idea for Halo. All of those co-op survival modes in all the games that had them ( COD: WAW Ghostbusters GoW 2) were great and probably what I played the most on multiplayer. Be really happy if its in there. Be really REALLY happy if they put it in there and have it in the upcoming beta.

@InvalidName13 1. the first halo game was released 9 freakin years ago give the graphics a break and who gives a s*** about them anyway the game was spectacular 2. despite short-ish campaigns halo 2 and 3 are some of the greatest games to date 3. ODST really wasnt shooting for a great story bungie just wanted to let people feel whats its like being a ODST 4. your right Reach is gonna be the best Halo yet

3 Words...HALO ROCKS. SOCKS. And after those 3 words, I have to say that reach looks much better than ODST and Halo Wars. Both of those games were failures. This seems to go back to you being a beast, not a regular soldier or a commander. L-E-G-I-T.

Looks like a much needed upgrade to the halo series, ODST was boring, extremely easy and dated in its graphics and game play feel. ( total kill in my belief in halo series. especially after the Halo 3 campaign which Sucked and the ending just a re-due of last Level of CE ) Although they attempted to make ODST it "realistic" on the human scale; but thats not why i play halo. I play halo to run into a room guns blazing out numbered 10-1 and come out on top ready to Kick Arss
