    does anyone agree with the E3 footage from the live stream? Halo Reach is amazing. Definitely the most lifelike Halo yet. From the vid, they used 300x more polygons from the original halo, making it the most graphically accurate version ever. The footage was from multiplayer, which is even more amazing- no lag, accurate... i was just waiting for that bill gates 1998 BSOD moment again, but it is just amazing. The last 2 ads for Fable3 and kingdom were simply shit - wii grade gameplay - compared with Halo Reach. I strongly advise you get it.

    If Microshit had added an actual virtual life headset to the package, even though they aren't comercially feasible, it would have been perfect. Can't wait for Nintendo's E3.

    It's a done deal for me. Halo reach was sold for me as soon as it announced though because I really want to live the story before master chief came into the action [​IMG]

    Graphics looked exactly like Halo 3. Not that that is a bad thing, but I expected more, expecially because they said it's a new engine but it looks completely like halo 3. [​IMG]

    It doesn't look like Halo 3, Everything's different, it's smoother, at least from the demo.

    I rewatched the clip again this morning and realised that that trailer was made completely on Theatre mode [​IMG]! That is pretty damn good.
    Also well done on having good taste in game [​IMG]

    I just wanna play it for the story. (Don't like the multiplayer)

    Guess i'm one of the few who likes the story of the Halo universe.

    Nah I'm also buying it for the story, though I will be playing online but if they havent tweaked it since the beta I wont be playing online that often :/ it was so unbalanced towards spartans it's near racism [​IMG]

    It looked okay, but the demo they played looked so boring and slow. The graphics did seem to be a bit of a step-up from Halo 3, but not by much.

    surroundings look better,
    new weapons look new.
    old weapons that you saw from Halo 3 look improved.

    animations look more enjoyable .

    it looks nice.

    they've rebuilt the game engine from the ground up. it has the ability to be the most real-looking game that i've seen on the xbox for a long time (wtf katamari!?!?)

    It can't be good that I wanted the game to turn into StarFox when they got into the ship.

    Never been into Halo that much, just seemed really sub-par but by now its not about us who don't see the appeal its just selling it to the people that do.

    I would love nothing more than to see how peoplelike this franchise. there has to be a reason but I sadly dont see it. I have never been a fan of the series but I have attempted to like it many times. That said, from what I can see from the trailer, it contains everything that makes Halo Halo. It will also be interesting to see how they manage the spaceship dogfighting.
