At least they are updating the graphics.

Posted by Mumrik

So they blow up I guess?
I'm not a Halo player - is this something one would even care about?

Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1

Selling would-be cheat codes as a pre-order bonus is a no-no. Not a good start 343.

This isn't the trailer for Ocarina of Time 3D, dude. 
 
EDIT: Nevermind! Ocarina is 10+ years old, this joke is invalid.

Well, isn't this just affecting the single-player mode? I'm sure it's just a toggle anyway.

Pistol with scope? NOW that's the Halo I love.

Stupid skull.

Posted by CrazedMaverick

so.. they're selling a version of the grunt birthday party skull. yippee?

Posted by Crixaliz

Is it just me or do the graphics look bad?
The Assault rifle and the hand model on the pistol look really ugly when compared against Reach.

@c0l0nelp0c0rn1: I'm pretty sure making something superficial like this the pre-order bonus is better than them doing something silly like locking out an entire mode or whatever.
Posted by Rawrz

Well at least the pre order bonus is something silly like a skull modifier and not something like armor you'll never get any other way.

Hey look, the AR doesn't look stupid anymore.

This should be no more than a 1200 Point Xbox Live Arcade Game..... But no... In the UK it is £35... That's basically a full price game... Microsoft can go shove it, i'll pick it up from the pre-owned bargain bin for £6 a year from now.

For $40 i'm in, now i just need to find The Duke.

Posted by bkbroiler

I missed you, Halo 1. Please fill me up with sexy juices.

@Simmse: Bungie didn't pull these kinds of things, they only did cosmetic pre-order bonuses from gamestop they never locked away skulls behind pre-ordoors, Um, orders.
 
That's why it's uncool, because the precedent has been that the skulls are something you unlock, not give a retailer an interest free loan for.
Posted by infestedandy

Cool for all the Halo-heads out there but I definitely will not pick this up.
 
Loved the first Halo's multiplayer but this game isn't shipping with it. I know, I know - 343 said they're making a CLASSIC mode playable for when the game comes out but that's just Spanish for "not the same thing."
 
I've been playing Halo for a while now, so when I see those promising words scroll across my screen I just know it won't be true.

Grunt Birthday Party was entirely cosmetic, and had no effect on the actual gameplay. Exploding Grunt corpses, on the other hand, can seriously help you or hinder you, as seen in the trailer when it totally annihilated an Elite with full health.

That was The Silent Cartographer in HD.

@c0l0nelp0c0rn1:  Ah, i understand now, also the use of the word ordoors impresses me, greatly.

For a game with modernized graphics and 7 Halo: Reach maps? I thinks it's a good deal, I'm glad they aren't charging 60$.

I'm assuming that's because it's using the Halo 1 visuals, since that was the original idea.

lol, maybe i'm misremembering, but i do think I rammed a warthog into that doorway that you see at the end of the video

Posted by roughneck117

Man, I really wish this was coming out on the PC too. Loved playing the first game.

Posted by JeanLuc

This looks like pure fan service for Halo fans. I CAN"T WAIT!!

You too? I took one as far into that building as it would let me. Good times.
Posted by moondogg
@Zolfe
I did the same, you could get a warthog right into that building. Perfect way to clear out those pesky Elites. 
 
Exploding Grunts... enough said pre ordered!
Posted by vinsanityv22

All it takes is for one enemy to go flying for this to become instantly worth it:) A really cool pre-order bonus. It actually changes the way you play the game, and is fun. Instead of some useless visual palette swap, like putting painted flames on Chief's armor or something.

You won't get your skull, silly boy.  Or be able to take the cellophane off.  Or be able to play one of the most overrated games in history at the same time as loads of other people with rose tinted spectacles.
 
Yeah - boo me.  I'll be doing panto in Eastborne this Christmas.
Posted by believer258

Cool beans, dude! 
 
This and Skyrim are the only two games I must get this year. Sure, Gears 3 and Deus Ex look great as well, but this looks really good.

Logic would determine that if you deem the price to be too much you don't shell out the cash for it. I (and apparently a fair number of others) think it is. It's like all the people that bought Chrono Trigger on the DS, Ocarina of Time on the 3DS, the Metroid Prime Trilogy, the God of War trilogy, the Sly Cooper Trilogy, etc. Sure, it's a cash-in for the companies but I enjoyed Halo 1 so much the first time around that it's worth my money once more these years later, especially when better graphics and other little trinkets like this are involved.

Yup, all the way down there to the door with the sword elite. Was very tough getting it through there, think I got it through maybe once.

It's not a very cool skull though. As long as everyone get's grunt birthday, I'm happy. No way in hell will this be as satisfying as headshots=children cheering and confetti grenades.

Everyone I know who has gone back to play Halo: Combat Evolved has loved it just as much. Myself included. It's like Half Life 2, it really really holds up well, even visually. The gameplay is polished, really enjoyable, challenging in just the right way (CE has the best campaign of all of them in terms of how enjoyable Legendary is, imo), and just awesome. Things like explosions setting off more grenades and things, the journey you go on, it's all still really enjoyable. This is no Golden Eye or Perfect Dark my friend.

Posted by This_Dude

game of the year in my book.  I might be biased though since the original Halo is still my favorite game.

Posted by Blood_for_the_blood_God

I hope I can still one shot hunters from the back with the pistol

Posted by Toxin066

I'll be buying the game anyways. Might as well pre-order this just for the option.

Posted by NTM

It's like they're just layering a coat of paint on it. Everything's the same, it's just higher resolution, and much much better textures. Not that that's bad, and I know that's what their goal was, but just saying. I kind of wish there was some new animations. Actually, in the end, everything will feel just right, and it won't matter.

I'm pretty sure the visuals are the quality of Halo: Reach which is one of the best looking Xbox exclusives.

The best part about this remake is going to be the online multiplayer so I'm not sure why they would focus on single player preorder stuff for a game that isn't even that old. I guess you have to do some kind of preorder on a game this big in today's markets.

The multiplayer is just a bunch of the maps remade for Halo: Reach. They'll pack in Reach's multiplayer into the game, so it's nothing new there.
