    wow….that looks really terrible honestly (graphics). Some of the effects look nice at least. Good thing i wasnt holding any high expectations for this. Reach will be my last Halo game of this gen i think, unless 4 really delivers.

    @spider I watched only 5mins to know that its the best HD remake available. Switching graphics is a nice gimmick btw. Wished Team Ico would’ve put so much effort in their games.

    Brings back good old gaming on Mac memories.

    @ Manamana….except thats what it is supposed to be. An HD REMAKE. The HD collections are not remakes at all. They are their original forms with HD upscale to their existing textures. Plus you get 2-3 games for $40 while here you get one for $60

    Captain Keyes looks very different, in his first shots he looks like he is constipated with that grimace. I’m not crazy about his new look.
    Cortana also looks different, glad they kept the Master Chief close to the same look.
    Engine looks much better, they can only do so much as the old engine is running underneath, its a nice new gloss of paint.
    I am concerned for Halo 4 as 343 industries is untested, hope they can pull it off. I’m sure Halo 4 will look great as they have the beautiful Corrinne Yu as lead programmer, a true mental goddess.

    It’s $35. Plus you get a map pack.

    What #5 said is totally true as well, it’s just the same game running with new make up, so to speak, on top of it. They didn’t redo it a la TRA. And it ‘s properly mesmerizing. It wasn’t developed by 343 too, Saber did it.
