@Dylabaloo: Just pointing out how badly this level would have looked if they hadn't have put that feature in. This is also the same team thats gonna make halo 4 :/

I was just about to say that. But since you already did, I'll just settle for second best:

I think the new version has too many lights on the ground, if they took them out i would be fine with it.

#10 Posted by Seedofpower (3928 posts) -

I don't see a problem here. I think you are over reacting.

Never saw that video before, thank you.

hmm I'm actually really interested to see how that Jenkins cutscene plays out. I remember loving it when I first saw it. Hope they can do that part justice.

#13 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1145 posts) -

I'm excited for the game, but man are these videos getting redundant. They're all pretty much "This is just an awesome feature--being able to switch back and forth--so we really just want to have fun with that. Also we tried really hard to make this Halo play like the first Halo so we took the code straight from Bungie which was a lot of hard work and so it plays just like the Halo you love." x 1000 
 
Really don't see the killing of the atmosphere though. Less fog is fine. 

#14 Posted by Gooddoggy (409 posts) -

They added textures and increased the draw distance? THOSE ASSHOLES.

Just wait for Halo Party, Halo Sports, Halo Kart Racing.

"Bungie announced that Halo: Reach would be their last Halo game, and that all future projects would be developed by 343. During this transition, some Bungie staff members transferred to 343, including Franchise Director Frank O'Connor."
This is also the team (somewhat) that worked on the previous Halos.

I consider the original Halo the formative experience of my gaming life, and I like the updated look.

#19 Posted by Mentalnova (139 posts) -

Needs more fog.

#20 Posted by Hobbies (976 posts) -

Half the fun of that level were the navigation issues, so I completely agree with the OP. Way too many damned lights lying all over the ground.

#21 Posted by FajitaBoss (54 posts) -

MS have a dream team working on 343i, I´m very hyped for this and the new Halo trilogy.

I don't think that's the issue here. The classic version features dim lighting that made it difficult to see. This new version has lighting all over the place. It's possible to add detail without subtracting part of what created the original atmosphere.

They said they added the lights because people kept getting lost.

Good lord, you guys are over reacting for a better looking game? The only reason the past game was creepy was from the fog, and that was because of lack of technology to do anything more than that.

Quit whining, your going to buy it and love it. You'll hate it on the side, but really deep inside you'll only be doing that for your social reputation.

#25 Posted by TheHT (11081 posts) -

It's not that bad. Maybe dull the colours to make it look more murky and grim, but it's not a far cry from the original.

this is still one of the funniest things i have ever seen, i cry laugh every time i see it.

and to the topic starter, if i felt the way you do i would just shoot myself in the head now so i wonldn't have to face the truly horrible things to come with in a video game, its just not worth it. follow me and lets end the suffering now.

Halo fans getting unreasonably angry at the smallest details is funny and sad.

This looks fine to me, I'm not sure what all the outrage is?

I think it looks nice.....

#33 Posted by babblinmule (1262 posts) -

I really dont see the problem with putting in more lights to make it easier for people to find their way. Christ, I got lost for 45 minutes in that god damn level the first time I played it.

#34 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

Play in classic mode. Stop bitching. No one is forcing your to play in this gen mode. 

#35 Posted by RollingZeppelin (1954 posts) -

here's an idea, turn the gamma down.

#36 Posted by DocPorpoise (109 posts) -

i'm saving my anger for whatever they do to the 'library' to make it less awful.

I... Really get this funny feeling seeing people reply with plain "play in classic mode." I mean, wouldn't that defeat the purpose of even getting Anniversary to begin with?

On topic though, I can see the concern. I don't really know how many people had troubles getting lost in that particular stage, but I don't know how much I like the new way of "pointing them in the right direction." More like "bathe the path with searchlights." But other than that, it looks pretty cool, really; I kind of doubt the rest of the game will see that issue popping up too often, if at all.

#38 Posted by louiedog (2335 posts) -

I think it looks great. I like the updated look.

Yep, then everyone can complain that "it's another brown game." Wooo!

God damn game developers got some 'change' in my game again huh?! I'll show those motherfuckers!!!!

Jeez.

#42 Posted by The_Nubster (2087 posts) -

Oh gosh, I hate lights and current-generation draw distances and game design that helps me find my way without slapping a bland marker on my HUD. Grrr, it really bothers me how they updated the updated version and left the classic version alone to appease both newcomers and those who enjoyed the original look! That just makes me angry! What's next, the inclusion of Kinect, as all first-party Microsoft games include to help push sales of that peripheral? GRRRRR.

#43 Posted by bobafettjm (1440 posts) -

I think it looks awesome. I suppose one could always just change it to the classic look while playing this level if it bothers them that much.

#44 Posted by TheHBK (5471 posts) -

I wonder what Halo would be like if it were 60 fps.

#45 Posted by mordukai (7149 posts) -

As good as it looks they just killed the mood of that level. Shame really. Ohh well...

#46 Posted by bio595 (307 posts) -

OH GOD THE HUMANITY.

#48 Posted by Toms115 (2316 posts) -

kind of messed up the mood a little. or a lot. 

#49 Posted by DefaultProphet (396 posts) -

I'm really confused. You people bitching realize that YOU CAN CHANGE IT BACK TO THE ORIGINAL LEVEL YOU LOVE WITH A PRESS OF A BUTTON right? You don't even have to go into a menu!

#50 Posted by krazy_kyle (716 posts) -

The only thing I don't like is the fact they think we are all idiots who can't fight their way out of a paper bag, so they basically light up the way like the runway at an airport. Damn you 343!
