It's alright. The large boost to perf and spatial sampling is nice, but otherwise the original game has a few advantages. Visually, the new brightness curve is making the image look washed out, and MCC has a couple of minor graphical quirks. Acoustically, the new mix is all wonky and there seems to be some missing filtering.I just got to the Halo 3 campaign and is it just me or does it look great. I know there wasn't the anniversary treatment to it but they cleaned up the game real nice. I was pleasantly surprised by how clean it looks now and the framerate has been a butter smooth 60fps through the first few levels.
???Not even gonna mention that they made the human faces much better than they were in 2007 lol.
Yo but for real trying to play matchmaking with a friend is a nightmare still. Half the time it won't find a match or we won't end up in the same lobby. It is almost 2015.
Just picked up an Xbox One and this, and I'm just wondering: how's the performance in splitscreen campaign? I've got an old high school buddy (we used to play Halo 1&2 religiously) coming over on the weekend and we want to drink beer and play co-op.
I'm excited, I never got around to buying Halo 3 or 4 on 360, so I'm 100% ready to "Finish the Fight" close to a decade later, haha
I've had worse luck. Tried playing with my brother and we probably need to restart the game every 2-3 matches to make sure we join the same lobbies.The glitches/bugs are still not consistent.
My friend and I have played probably 20+ games together since last Friday, only had to reset maybe 2x during those sessions.
Last time, every invite I sent him worked, we were in amazement.
Splitscreen performance is (for me) by far the most disappointing part of the collection.
The framerate is awful.
The new thing apparently is to immediately get 9 people in the playlist and wait 3-5 minutes for the game to decide to put someone else in or kick the 9th person. I don't think the even teams concept should come at the expense of setup time.
Preach!Dear non CE players, you have your own goddamn playlists. Let me play some fucking CE team slayer
Wait till it goes away from gaming side. Will probably just die off like the Halo 4 thread as most would rather just post in the community OT. Crazy that so many thought we could have separate threads for customs running concurrently. Such a bungle of a launch. More than a month now, and still getting "we're seeing improvements, working around the clock, ranked playlists and dedicated CE coming Soon".
I mean damn, I gey the problems, but how busted was the game that it took a month for 343 and Xbox programmers and engineers just to get matchmaking somewhat functional? Still so many bugs and crashes.
You haven't checked since SundayAnyone know if BTB will ever get a 16 player max like it's supposed to be?
It's currently at 12 which isn't right fit BTB.
The main thing I bought the game for was to be able to play 8v8 with vehicles again. I'm trying to play some Valhalla CTF or that sand map without the lag...
I'm so disappointed right now.
Hey so I just got this game yesterday (finally!) and I've been playing through H2A's campaign. One thing that I noticed is that the Sentinel Beam weapon doesn't show an actual beam when using the Anniversary graphics. Is this intentional?
I hate how people keep constantly voting H3 over and over again. I mean goddamn they have a choice between a game that never had online console play before (Halo 1), a game that has been previously shutdown for 4 years (Halo 2), and yet they pick HALO FUCKING 3! GTFO with that.
