Check the video above which compares the graphics between Halo 2 and Halo 3 to see that Bungie really has upgraded the graphics for this version.
Anyway what is up without retailers, The Halo 3 boxes have huge stickers all over them telling the retailers that they are not allowed to sell the game until the 26th. CNA’s and Pick n Pays all over the country have broken this release date and rumours are coming in now that so have Toys r Us.
This is really a set back for our desire to have our games released day and date with the UK as well as setting us back for Live support. We were being pushed up the Live list due to our advanced retail system and then they go and do something like this.
The guys who have pre-ordered cannot be to happy as well.
I was lucky enough to be given a preview of Halo 3 last Wednesday at the Microsoft offices and since we all signed NDA’s I couldn’t report on it until late last night. However there really isn’t any point anymore since so many copies have been leaked, everyone know about it now.
I am really looking forward to my copy arriving on Wednesday, I personally think the game looks fantastic and the physical reaction of the water and animal life is awesome. However Halo has never been about the single player campaign, while it looks good and is enjoyable enough once we started up the multiplayer Halo really started to shine.
The shield and plasma bombs are fantastic new features and they really do change the gameplay.
