Halo 1 still hasn't come to the pc, and it won't for a long time yet. if Halo 2 has the same 1.5 year turn around there is nothing to be excited about. Doom 3 will have already been out for a long time, etc.

Well there's no way they are going to have unified lightning system or that much bumpmaping in open ended maps so I wouldnt call it "Doom3 graphics", expect same Halo graphics with more vertex and pixel shading effects and maybe more T&L utilization?

They've already changed the graphics system around, though I don't claim to know what they did right now.

That's right. Halo 2 will be rendered real-time with zero-wait state gfx output... Some sort of "pioneer achievement".
