What did you think of Halo Reach's E3 2010 game-play footage?

I think the gameplay footage pretty f*#%ing awesome, it's like Halo: CE on steroids. I'm just happy to see the Elites back as the primary enemy, they were such a fun enemy to fight and far better than the lame Brutes. The inclusion of Space battles is something I wanted since before Halo 3's release, they look like an epic mix of Star Fox 64 and Colony Wars. The game looks gorgeous, this is game looks just as good, if not, better than Gears of War 3.  I loved Firefight from ODST, but this looks far more chaotic and intense, and there's finally matchmaking for this mode for once. I was disappointed by the last three Halo titles, but this looks like to deliver on all of it's promises.
 
II reall for this game already, this and Crysis 2 are on my list of must have FPS of 2010.

It looks pretty good. What really made me excited was the space battle at the end.

Its Halo. 
 
So no, I didn't watch it. I learnt my lesson from buying Halo 3. 'sigh' Never again.

Well? What's wrong with that? If it wasn't Halo, then it wouldn't be Halo. It doesn't have to be another military and "realistic" military shooter like Call of Duty 4 or any of the other watered down military shooters that try to emulate it's success or it's godawful sequel.

Chances are you will not like what I say. 
 
The halo games where milked to far. Along with most series that go beyond two games. CE was great. It was new and a bold move. Moving to ODST that was a rip off. You mostly just paid for Halo 3 maps and firefight. Halo reach seems like something that should have been made instead of ODST.

It's just another Halo. 
And it has a single Space Combat encounter thing. 
It's a Halo Game, with a hint of Battlefront 2. 
Seems alright, it's the first Halo game I'm willing to sit down and play with a couple of friends.

Looks like outdated crap compared to other big titles out there, i mean just look at Rage or Killzone 3 and then look at Halo reach lolz. Gears 3 before it looked freaking awesome and then came Reach joke. But Halo boys will eat it all up no worries.

Of course Halo is more milked than the Call of Duty series, look at the results: 
 
2001: Halo: Combat Evolved 
2003: Halo: Combat Evolved (PC Port) 
2004: Halo 2 
2007: Halo 3 
2009: Halo Wars and Halo 3 ODST 
2010: Halo Reach 
 
Now let us look and compare with the non-milked Call of Duty franchise: 
 
2003: Call of Duty 
2004: Call of Duty: United Offensive and Call of Duty Finest Hour 
2005: Call of Duty 2 and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One 
2006: Call of Duty 3 
2007: Call of Duty 4 and Call of Duty: Roads to Victory
2008: Call of Duty World at War 
2009: Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Mobilized
2010: Call of Duty: Black Ops 
 
As you can clearly see, Halo is more milked than Call of Duty. 
 
In all seriousness, Halo is being milked but it's one of the least milked popular game franchises.

Killzone 3 looks like Killzone 2 but in a snowy setting, how riveting... Not to mention that Killzone 2 was just another watered down military shooter that's disguised in a futuristic setting and it was only slightly better than Modern Warfare 2... that's not saying much. Killzone 3 doesn't look any different, but don't worry, all of the Killzone boys will eat it up. See how that feels?
 
I will agree with you on Rage, but you're still a bit of a dick. Then again, Bulletstorm and Crysis 2 look a lot more interesting.

Same can be said for Halo. Take away the space part. What do you have?

I know, I just wanted to make sure that you weren't a Call of Duty fanboy (Don't worry, I'm not a Halo fanboy. To prove it: Halo 3's single-player and story was: bleh.) It's just that many would consider Halo to be "the most milked franchise of all time" which is a bunch of bullshit. There are far more milked franchises,. 
 
Here are examples: 
  • Street Fighter
  • Pac-Man
  • Sonic
  • Mario
  • Final Fantasy
  • Tony Hawk
  • Call of Duty
 
Halo is a half-empty milk carton compared to those games. Not to mention that Reach is not a cash in for the franchise, Bungie is actually exploring a large portion of it's universe for once and it's their last Halo game. They want to end their series with a bang, and Reach looks like it could end it with a bang. If it ended with Halo 3, the series would've ended with a whimper.

Nothing wrong with it if you like Halo ... I don't, so that is what happened inside my poor brain shortly after the video poured in through my eye holes. Then, slightly interested because I think the whole space-shooter genre has died a death and I'd like to play a good one, or a game with good space shootery bits in it ... then not interested again when I found out it was only 1 mission in the whole game. Boo. And ... no ... of course it doesn't have to be another military shooter :/ that would be an awful idea for everyone even distantly involved. "
Bungie was just teasing us and they said there would be more unexpected surprise later.

Hahaha, you really think that "OH LOOK! A SECOND SPACE COMBAT MISSION!" is gonna be one of their "unexpected surprises" ?  
Think out of the box, ok.  
I know you're a big fan of the series, but damn dude.

Dude, Bungie stated that there's only one Space Combat scenario in th game. The game won't allow any more after that, I actually do my research before I let out the inner fanboy within me thank you. 
 
EDIT: I'm also, not THAT big of a fan of this series. I loved the first two, the third one left me pretty dissapointed. While I loved the multi-player and it's new features, the single-player and story left me underwhelmed. Halo 3 ODST was just an over-priced DLC to cash in for the franchise, the game was good with a campaign and story better than Halo 3 and Firefight was awesome, the game is too short and there's no matchmaking for Firefight which was total letdown. Halo Wars was just, bleh!
#20 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I didn't think much. I was surprised about the space combat, but its not like its anything I haven't seen before. I played the beta, so the gameplay wasn't really new to me. Halo isn't bad, but I've played all but the first and halo wars, but always on somebody else's xbox.

It's my job, I was just saying that there are no surprises in the game that will make peoples fussy little heads explode. 
It's a Space Combat mission, and probably a "OMG LOOK! It's MCs underpants!" somewhere in a locker or something.  
But there's nothing wrong with being a fanboy, just don't be ashamed to admit it, it only shows that you're not sure that your favorite game is actually any good.

No, if someone says: "I wasn't impressed, I didn't like it". That's perfectly okay for them to say that. However, if someone expressed it like this: "Gaylo Reach Around looks teh same! Gaylo fanboys is gonna eat itz up! Modern Warfare 2 PWNS Gaylo! HUR HUR HUR HUR!" Then they really need to GTFO for intentionally trying  to stir up flamewars and internet drama.

I really liked the almost concept art type look it had, especially the skyboxes. 
The gameplay looked like halo which I still enjoy. 
When the space battle first started I got really excited but after a moment it just looked really slow and limited in movement. Looked pretty though. 
I thought the transition between ground and space was really awesome aswell. 
I hope they do more one off things like the space combat in the game

I would regard someone saying that it's just Halo and the franchise is being milked, when they haven't even watched the video as a hater, yes.

Well I didn't say there will be anything mind-blowing to be sure, because we don't know. As for the Space Battles didn't blow me away, it surprised me and left me with something unexpected. It's something I wanted for the franchise for a long time, since Space battles fit nicely within the universe.  
 
Oh, and there's a lot to be wrong with being a fanboy.

I'm honestly not sure how you can critisize Halo but then praise Killzone, when it's always been nothing but a second rate immitation.  It's the dictionary definition of a Halo clone, and offers nothing original or even interesting.  Besides rather pretty graphics.
 
 I'm also not sure what looked outdated about it.  It doesn't use scripted encounters and scenes the way games like Call of Duty does, and instead features large encounters with advanced A.I. which in my opinion makes the gameplay a lot more fun, especially on co-op.  It means every enemey encounter plays out differently, each time you play it.  Unlike say Call of Duty where you know where each enemey will be and what will happen once you've played it once.  The fact it doesn't have duck and cover gameplay is actually a point in it's advantage, in my opinion.

Also have to point out that being a fanboy for something else is no better than being a fanboy for Halo.  You can't crtisize someone for doing something you're doing yourself, you're just making yourself look stupid.

I really, really don't understand Halo hate and how people say it's "milked". I can think of so many other examples of games that are milked far more. The difference with Halo is that Bungie has been loyal to it's fans and they don't release games like 5+ years after each other. Yet because of that fact, people misinterpret that as being "milked". So what if a completely different studio made an RTS? Are you going to say that Silent Hill franchise is being milked too? Those games are always switching developers yet I'd hardly call them milked.  
  
Also, the pricing of ODST was not Bungie, it was MGS. They are the publishers. 
 
Halo Hate is just a bandwagon that is easy to jump on because it's cool to hate things that are popular. That's as simple as it is.

Amen to everything you've said brother, but I disagree with you on Killzone 2. The game seemed more like a Call of Duty 4 clone than Halo, the Resistance series is a Halo clone but a good one. Killzone 2 was decent, but that's about it. I practically forgotten that the game existed and played Call of Duty 4 and then eagerly awaited for Modern Warfare 2.... I wished I kept my expectations low for that game.

@Spartan14003: So being a bigger fan of a specific franchise is no good because some internet jobber says so? 
That's kinda sad, not being able to like a game a little more than others.  Sorry to hear that

No, it's the way it's nature and the behavior of fanboys that's bad. They become wild up and crazy when they see an opposing opinion, besides respectively counter-pointing, they just ramble a bunch of nonsense and make a baby temper tantrum. The way they expressed they fanboyis/fangirlism is regurgitating as well, they're always like: "This blah is the best of all time, it's better than blah blah blah blah".  
 
Also, that's not some just some internet jobber. He's a very wise man on YouTube, something that is rare on that website. Watch this video, it's a very good rant.

I thought it looked pretty cool.  Haters gonna hate, and Reach will end up being one of the best shooters of the year.

It was good, I just wish there would be quite an in-depth space combat element to it, not just a single section. I get the feeling they might be holding out for a spin-off with that theme. Still, that hasn't been done in a while, might be fun!

@Spartan14003: So you are unable to form your own opinion and have to user other peoples videos to say what "you" feel? 
And again, dumb hidden insults are boring, try something better. 
 
No, actually don't. I don't care about people from Youtube. 
It's Youtube after all

I was content to let Reach pass by without giving it a second thought, given that I could not endure past the half way mark of the borefest that was ODST. 
 
Then I saw the space battles. 
 
I gave it a second thought.

Bungie has been releasing the same game with minimal improvements for 4 games now...what makes this one any different?

Your posts are a little hypocritical.  Defending a game because you're a fan of it makes a lot more sense than fanatically unwilling to recognise anything good about it, despite allegedly "not caring about the series".
 
When I don't particularly care about a game, I tend to just flat out ignore it, or at most post my opinion and move on.

I'm moderately excited I suppose, since the beginning of Halo 3 I've come to expect a certain kind of solid shooter from the franchise that's always a good time for a while. ( not that I'm opposed to change or anything)  I bought up to Halo 3, but just rented ODST, and I'll probably do the same with Reach.

@WinterSnowblind: I never said I didn't care about the series. 
I just said that Reach was the only game I was willing to sit down and play with a couple of friends.  
I also have never said that there was nothing good about the games either.  
 
I have said that there was nothing new, and I stick with that. 
Everything Halo has done we've actually seen many times before

I know right? I mean, Reach is no different than the previous Halo games. In the previous Halo games, there were sandbox levels, you get to fight along with Spartans, you had armor abilities, Space battles, assassination moves, blooming crosshairs, and matchmaking in fire fight.....oh, wait!

I'm never particularly impressed with Halo in video form.
Those games have always been about how they play for me.

Have you actually beaten the campaign in all of them ? They're keep the same feeling but make some improvements and changes . 
 
For example: 
 
Halo 2: 
 
  • Replaced health bars with regenerating health
  • Duel-wielding 
  • Melee lunge
  • The ability to hi-jack vehicles
  • The ability to play as a Elite (In the campaign, The Arbiter has the ability to cloak unlike the Master Chief)
  • You can jump higher and move faster
  • You can't take fall damage
  • Xbox-Live multi-player
  • New enemies, such as the Drones and Brutes
  • Of course: New weapons and vehicles
  • Plays more like Unreal Tournament than opposed to Halo: CE's Counter-Strike feel
 
Halo 3:  
 
  • The ability to rip-off turrets from their tripods
  • Forge
  • Theatre Mode
  • More variety in the level design
  • Four player co-op
  • The elites are replaced by Brutes as the primary enemies (Unfortunately)
  • Interactive scarab battles
  • Stronger melee attacks 
  • Equipment items
 
Halo Wars: 
 
  • It's an RTS for consoles
 
Halo 3 ODST: 
 
  • You're an ODST instead of a Spartan (Makes things tactical)
  • Health bars are back
  • Melee isn't as strong as the Spartan's melee attacks
  • Open world night time exploration
  • No duel-wielding
  • Firefight 
 
They all feel like Halo, but add a few new stuff to keep it fresh and familiar, like 90% of most video game sequels. Despite Halo 3's campaign and story being nothing more than lackluster, Scarab battles were pretty awesome though.

Not really, Halo: CE was pretty innovative for shooters for it's regenerating shield, which influenced many shooters. It was also innovative for it's seamless mix of off-hand grenade throwing, weapon bludgeoning melee attacks, and gunplay, which Bungie refer as the: "Golden-Tripod".

Why exactly is it crap?

ODST had stamina and health. Stamina pretty much being shields.

Yeah, pretty much. Though the health bars did change things up and made it more tactical. It played like a mix between Halo 3 and Halo: CE, which is both a good and a bad thing. I wish I get to fight the Elites in it, thankfully they're back in Reach.

I thought it was awesome. Seeing how Halo CE is still my all time favorite single player FPS experience and Reach seeming to be like that, I look forward to it.
