I just hope they don't screw up the single player mode like they did with Halo 2

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
Ok, Deepblue - Halo 3 sucks, and we don't care about it, or the latest happenings about the Xbox. If we do care, we go online and find info about it, we don't need you spoon feeding us your adverts. And what sort of magazine spends so much time reviewing a game - that's not even out yet?
With all due respect, even though you yourself may dislike Halo (and admittedly, I'm not very interested in the series myself), it is one of the biggest phenomena to ever occur in gaming, and tens of millions of people do care very much about the release of the third installment.  I don't see any harm in making a thread summarizing the info that's been released so far.  I know Deepblue has garnered a reputation of being an MS fanboi, but I fail to see how that translates into criticizing each and every thread that he makes.


I don't mind so much that he made a giant thread devoted to Halo 3. What I do mind is coming in and seeing 3/4/5 different threads devoted to the Xbox and all of it's amazing glory. Keep it all in one thread or something, and stop pushing so goddamn hard.

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
From what I understand, the ending put a lot of people off.

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
And FS2's ending didn't give us almost the same message? :p

The LOD problem, for one. But I guess that's more of an engine issue.

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
Especially painful during the cutscenes.

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
The cutscenes themselves were generally quite good, just that god-awful popping was incredibly distracting. Remember though, no load times!

 
Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
Cutscene quality  -vrs-   Load times.....


Personally, I'd go with a load time and some higher quality cutscenes. 
Then, again, if the load times too long, like on certain games, it just gets tedious...

Desicions, decisions....  :doubt:

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
It's the one time I like graphics over gameplay; if load-times would eradicate the horrific popping of textures/models/whatever seen in Halo 2's cutscenes, then load me up baby!!

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
Do you remember the load times for Halo 1? While they were sorta a nice break from the action, you usually had like 3 minutes to kill.


 
Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
Well... no, because the only Halo 1 I ever played was on my computer, and I have a rather powerful computer. :p Load times= less than 10 seconds, without fail (and that was before tripling the RAM). 8)

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
That's because you had RAM, unlike the lowly Xbox.

Fine. Anyway, the pop-in has been corrected in Halo 2 Vista without added load-times.

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
The problem I had with Halo 2's single player was also the lack of missions that I really liked. From the people I've talked with, Assault on the Control Room was their favourite level in Halo 1. Give me a level like that in Halo 2.

Another problem was some of the levels were either too long or too short... and then, with multiplayer, you have annoying kids on there who make you want to strangle them.

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
yeah I liked Assault too, though it was a little long on the Harder settings.
