Halo HD remake 'takes the past and makes it better'

Postby cian84 » 13 Jun 2011, 12:39

I like that idea of being able to see what the old version looks like. It's very similar to what Lucas Arts did with their Monkey Island remakes.

But.

Will it take the future and make it worse?

Halo HD remake 'takes the past and makes it better'

Postby sonic_uk » 13 Jun 2011, 12:44

I do have the original Halo, but its only 4:3 which is annoying when playing on a 16:9 screen. I will be buying this on day one as a Halo fan, and am looking forward to seeing the new HD graphics. Co-op 2 player sounds good too. Not bothered about achievements in the least but the other features sound great as long as the gameplay itself is unaltered.

Isn't this a bit cheeky? To me it sounds like Microsoft closing down the Halo servers earlier this year, then saying 'if you want to keep playing, buy it again on 360'. Couldn't they have just done a big of jiggly pokery on the servers?

Loved the first Halo..... so much so that I might have to buy a 360 for this when it arrives.

@JakeyBakey it was actually the Halo 2 and original Xbox servers that where taken down not Halo CE as that was never online.
I just hope the multiplayer 7 maps are new maps for Reach in the same way ODST was with Halo 3 as opposed to a complete reset of unlocks in what looks like the exact same multiplayer as Reach.

I wouldn't say that is true I bought a gamecube solely for Wind Waker. Only had extra games because they came with the bundle. Same for Wii only got for Twilight Princess. I was so gutted Mircosoft bought Bungie and made them turn Halo into a Xbox game I bought a Xbox, though the Xbox and 360 turned into my main gaming machine as I couldn't afford a new upgrades for my PC at the time.

I hope it's still got all the alien speech, sadly missing from Halo Reach, can anyone explain why there was none in reach?

I really like the sound of what they're doing to the remake. I will definitely pre-ordering a copy as and when I will be able to.

the more i watch the trailer the more differences i see. not in terms of engine but the fact that gun emplacements have turned up where they weren't for a start.

the mp plays like reach from what i can see too so a straight halo reissue was always gonna be out once 343 went that way.

oh yeah, anyone on the fact that halo 4 has weapon attachments next time out? noticed that in the trailer.

I think it was due to the fact that the majority of the covenant that fought on Reach had had minimal or zero contact with Humans prior, and therefore had not learnt the language, whereas in the later games this wasnt the case.
Sega, why have you forsaken me???

THey want it to play exactly like it did...but are adding jet packs, armor, and sprint? Just make sure it stay's fast paced like the original and i'll be happy. The second Halo was to slow...the third was still slow but much better...and Halo Reach was the second best multi for the Halo games and yet, it was slightly slower than the original.
