Hey, Here Are Some Halo: Reach Screenshots

27 new shots that weren't sneakily snapped off of a TV screen.

While I'm normally not the type to devote an entire story to DUDE NEW SCREENSHOTS, the nature of Halo: Reach's previous shots--most of which were crappy cell phone snaps taken of some sort of beta by some guy who felt the need to Photoshop his favorite guitar player's name on them--makes these at least a little bit more interesting. 
 
For the record, I briefly thought about pasting a picture of Tom Morello onto all of these shots, just to be a dick.

Fill me in here, what does Tom Morello have to do with Halo: Reach?

Posted by mano521

well at least they changed something,   sorta.  my big turn off for ODST was that it was like.. exactly the same as halo 3 only 2 years later.

Elites were always so much more fun to fight against than Brutes.

Halo:  Republic Commando. 
 


ALL SPARTANS.  Srsly, if it plays anything like Republic Commando then I am already infinitely more interested in this than I have been any previous Halo game.

the art direction could've been so much better. I thought reach was an enormous industrial complex planet with fallen frigates and acid rain....
 
and now it's just some mountains and pine trees and... sigh.

Needs more colors and less bloom lighting.

Posted by buzz_clik

Yep, looks like a Halo game... which is a good thing in my eyes. I enjoyed ODST but it seemed too much of a stopgap, so I'm hoping that this title delivers more.

Looks good. Bungie said that these are from a build pre-thanksgiving too. Not bad though.

If MS had a sence of humour, they would have done that for you.

Wow, they made Halo more brown.

@themangalist: 
Reach has always been an extremely Earth-like military center. Although I'm sure there'll be plenty of warehouse and factory levels at some point in the game.
Posted by Duffyside

I can't believe all these people saying it looks like Halo. No, not really. Halo has always been colorful, which in this day and age was really the only thing I liked about it. 
 
Brown.

Hm. I wonder what that blurred out thing on the HUD is in the 9th pic. 
 
Did they add something new I wasn't aware of?

Posted by Scarabus

Do not care.

Look at where the crosshair is located. That's a screenshot of the Natal contols.

Nice eye, I noticed the same thing when reading through game informer's cover story this month (they have the same screenshot in their story).  Also in that same screenshot it's pretty clear something is being fudged/blurred out just above the radar (lower left corner)
 
PS: if people didn't know Halo: Reach is game informer's cover story this month.
Posted by Brackynews
@Duffyside: Agreed. The vehicle is so colourful by comparison it looks like a Tonka truck.
I'm sure it will play just fine, but I need more than stills to be excited.  Actually, just release some music, that's all that really matters. ;)   MARTY! SAVE US!

Bungie claims that it was a glitch. 
Posted by Shibbles

Yep, that's definitely Halo.

Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin

One of those enemies looks exactly like Christoper Lee.

Posted by Th3_James

It looks noice, can't wait till a friend gets a build of it :D

Tom Morello!

Posted by AllThatBacon

Yep. That's Halo.

Edited by ArchV1le

meh, rent 
 
edit: unless we get to play as Ghost ;)

Posted by Eight

Why would they try and resell Halo 3? Oh wait...

Posted by Hitchenson

Dude, can't wait.

Why post if you don't care? That's like walking into a bar just to tell everyone you don't drink. GTFO. 
 
Anyway, I think they look pretty good. I mean we've seen some of these before but I'm really interested in that one with the FPS view. I am loving the more gritty look. Also did anyone else notice how there is something censored in that shot, right above the radar? 
 
Can't wait to see the final product, it looks pretty good already and I can only imagine Bungie is going to make it look even better. The environments are a little bland but they will obviously fix that up - they're Bungie. I can't wait to see the awesome effects too... Bungie does effects so well.

Hey Jeff, you forgot one...

The Halo 3 engine is showing its age.

@Jimbo: Republic Commando was a fine game.
 
It looks good for being 8 months away from being done. Go back and look at Halo 3. The character models look infinitely better than 3.
Posted by Landon

Never been one for Halo, but this looks pretty cool.

Posted by TheHBK

I am excited to see how this game turns out.  The jackals show the graphics are being greatly improved.
 
But damn, we have been talking about these screenshots in the forum for the past week, why so late?
