I didn't think there would be any gameplay videos, but I wanted to see some of the new vehicles or weapons. I don't think they needed a countdown clock just for that. :D

It was OK. I was hoping for some more action.

I think Ottawa got bombed :(


But do you guys think the physics was real? Can a nuke spread so quickly? I thought the nukes spread too quickly.

And why wouldn't Mastercheif die if he landed on the ship? He dies when you fall far in the single player missions.

It was good.
Music had energy and the effects looked cool.
Those huge battle ships looked sweet!

Hmm... good video.

I have a question though, is this video an "in game" video? What I'm trying to ask is, will in game play look as good as the video did? If so, then suck me sideways!!! And just think, they still have another year and a half to finish this huge bundle of joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait!

Just good enough to make me drool for the next 15months.

I downloaded the "Age Of Mythology" trailer and that one kicked ass also.

This was a good video, but i thought they said it would be in game footage.

JimmieDoogan
09-04-2002, 10:42 PM
MAXX, did you not understand my post... REALTIME GRAPHICS PROCESSED BY THE XBOX GAMING CONSOLE!!!!!!!!!!! That means the game ALREADY looks that good... imagine how good it will look when it comes out next year. ;)

The footage is in-engine meaning it's running entirely off the new Halo 2 engine (you can even see the jaggies). Don't you think it's a little too early to have in-game let alone gameplay footage?

Yeah... I thought it was good looking but was expecting more.

Guess we will just have to wait for Xmas 2003.

I expected more but it will do. Much better use of bump mapping this time.

It may actually reveal the storyline of Halo 2. It looks like MC is proceeding with the original plan from the book and he's going to steal a covenant ship to take to their home planet.

Indeed, the graphical aspect of the HALO trailer has me reeled, but the Brute Force trailer caught me off guard, I never thought it would be any interesting until now.

Why do you nit pick?

These are the best graphics in any game ever...

Yes, better than Doom 3.

Why would you be expecting Gameplay footage? I am sorry but if you are going to complain about a trailer that great, suck my ****. This made me feel like I was at the movies watching a damned trailer for the next Blockbuster, or was I?

Jesus, can they make you hang off of your seat anymore?

I don't think anyone was upset with the movie, just look at the poll.

Personally, I think this game looks better then ANY OTHER XBOX GAME I HAVE SEEN. I was just wonder if it was an "in-game" video.

If you're wondering if it's in game it's the same deal as HALO, what you see is what you play, at all times, Bungie stated that.



Does anyone have a transcipt of the dialogue?

It was OK. Definately a jump up from Halo graphics and it looked alot 'cleaner' than Halo did. Since they have over a year to really tweak it then I'm sure we are going to get an awesome game. I was just expecting more from the trailer. The soundtrack is going to be top notch once again!

And what was up with the silver pen|s spacecraft? LOL

OK,
It freaking rocked. I'm going to download my own copy to keep. I even like this new WMP9. Anyway, I can't wait. But my only thing is that I bought Dead to Rights. The intro movie is bad ass. The graphics in the movie are awesopme. But the game is not rendered in the same way. It's like 2 different things. Look at the detail of the people in the movie, and look at the stripper when you get to that part. It looks like she was drawn with a crayon. She has mittens for hands for god's sake. But that's my only concern. After seeing the Halo2 trailer and going erect in a matter of seconds, I hope for all that's holy, that the game is rendered the same way that the trailer is.

But needless to say, I was impressed. So much I still have wood.

Quick question, I'm at work and am using NT, which version should I download? There's not one that says for NT, just XP, and the 2000, ME etc. ??? I'm at work, and don't want to risk screwing something up!!! HELP!

What was all the hype about, I was really disappointed, frankly I think it sucked.

I liked it it was a nice teaser let's try you doing something like that way before your game is out.

That was a pretty good teaser but the idea of Master Chief surviving that huge fall onto the Covenant ship:rolleyes: I don't think so.. heh..

No gameplay footage but still good enough to keep me excited.

Btw, someone earlier mentioned that the graphics is better than Doom 3... :rolleyes: I wouldn't go that far just yet.. Let's not forget that Carmack is the father of all modern FPS.. Doom 3's capabilities can go beyond that of the Xbox.. it'll be pushing GeForce 4..

They made a jump like that in the book "Fall of Reach" also.

It did look pretty sharp, and I think it will live up to what Halo did.

Still, its too early to tell what kind of game it will be. We only know that the next environment is Earth. Lets wait for some more screen and trailers, then we can get even more hyped.

It was great, I cant wait to see it complete. Also I hope Bungie doesnt rush it like the first one.

It was good to see something... We all wanted a bone... And that's what we got. This game will rule all that is good.

Like I said before I will be drooling for the next 15 months while they finish it, but that's ok with me if Bungie doesn't rush things and gets it perfect. It'll be worth the wait.
