As almost everyone here has already said: "Halo 3 isn't out yet."
The graphics, game-play, and features WILL be different from what you saw in the Beta.
So, that means this discussion is just a waste of time.

And, no, Halo 3 is not overrated. If anything it's under rated, most of the gaming magazines and such judged the game to be a 7 out of 10 before it even came out. Because the graphics were "plastic" and not real. And the gameplay would lag and have terrible realtime reflections and particle effects.

I can understand the water (although it's motion felt a bit artificial, like a blanket), but what does the above have to do with the water?

Watch that video, look at those pictures. Bull if those are terrible graphics.

Video too low quality. I can be filming a picture of shit and say that the blurriness comes from the depth of field feature in the game. Then I play the game, and it has a lot of jaggies. Poopy jaggies.

It's been said that Halo 3 has a whole lot of jaggies. Poopy jaggies.

Oh wow lets argue about two games on the same system cuz we're retarded newfags:

-One isn't even out yet. It's also overhyped and will sell out.

-One is supposedly the best 360 game avaliable. It is selling like free sex and has it's time to shine b4 all the others make it for the holidays.

-Both are two different shooters altogether anyway.

And for fuck's sake, CAN WE STOP CALLING IT "NEXT-GEN", IN 1995 THE N64 WAS "NEXT-GEN", YOU DUMB FAGS. Let's live in now.

Also, the link is just a picture of the water, not the video. If you've seen the water, you can tell that the way it moves and collides looks extremely stiff. Like a big sheet of plastic rods attached on a rope.

Also, Bioshock's originality > Halo 3. So there.

Wow, I really didn't know that third-person impressions of a first-person shooter meant the game was good.

I wonder why the second picture was in third person,but he wasn't holding turret. I don't keep up with news, can you go third person anytime during campaign?

Neeyoooorrrrr, I agree. I don't think FF7 is the greatest ever, Mr. Wesley.

My post did come out rather fanboyish.

Shows what you know dumbfuck. That's part of the "saves film" feature, where you can save films of your campaign and multiplayer adventures, detatch the camera from the FPS View (If you Wish) and take screenshots from different angels.

Pre Rendered? If it was Pre Rendered it would look even better.

Is now a good time to state that Halo is one of the most over rated series I've ever played due to what I consider to be the story line which is rather generic (saving the galaxy), Master Chief being a rather generic construct ( like there's never been a super soldier that saves the day before...) and the only good thing about the game series is that you can drive vehicles?

No? My bad...

Seriously though. Halo isn't a bad game, it's quite a good one, but it's far from awesome and doesn't deserve the fan boys it has.

It's not about saving the galaxy. And in no way is the story generic, it has a common theme, wow it takes place in the future and in space with aliens. Thats the only thing that you could call
un-original about it.

If you boil things down to their basics then you can say anything is generic.

FFVII goes deeper than a guy with a giant sword saving the world.

Besides, it's usually the events that happen in RPG's, rather than the overall plots of them which make people say that their stories are good.

Nintendo are superb when it comes to water effects.

It is, even if there not the most realistic, I personally like them the best.

And let's not forget how most of it was a big rip on Aliens.

Not to mention, it IS about saving the galaxy. You need to destroy Halo, which is capable of wiping out all life in the galaxy and your enemies are arrogant to this.

The water in the first playable moment of boishock (swimming in the plane wreck) is better than any other CGI water i've ever seen.

You mean destroying HALO in order to stop a chain reaction that would wipe out all life ISN'T saving the galaxy?

And in no way is the story generic, it has a common theme, wow it takes place in the future and in space with aliens.

Generic super soldier wakes up to find his ship under attack. Gets off ship and saves his crew members whilst destroying entire armies of enemies almost entirely on his own.

At some point discovers a threat to the galaxy and goes off to destroy the threat.

That is the plot of Halo. Their may be more flourishes and stuff in it but that is essentially it and it is nothing new or original.

Thats the only thing that you could call un-original about it.

Or there's the fact that the idea of Halo is VERY similar to the concept of Ring World in the book by the same name written by Larry Niven.

Or Possibly drawing from ancient history to name thing s( SPARTANS). Whilst that isn't a bad thing, I do it all the time when I'm writing, it's hardly original.
