Ouch!

I found this too, not sure how old it is though (or if it's fake).

Don't look if you have a weak stomach :(

ralinn: That has to be from an old build of the Vista version (or a Halo 2 mod for the PC version of the original Halo) because the Xbox version of Halo 2 looks lightyears better.

From that screenshot you provided, it looks like Halo 2 is being run on a Voodoo 2.

It does indeed, it scared me quite a bit. Thanks, I'm glad... I really want to play this game in Co-op (oh please god let it happen for the PC), but if it looked like that... I'd have had second thoughts.

Now that I look back at that screenshot again, I really think that it truely is a screenshot of a Halo 2 mod for Halo PC. Just look at the comment in the screenshot by the person playing it.

We need Vista..for That...wow..they should dump Halo 2 as a Vista Release type game and promote / help / support more better games..Game looks terrible..and that video looks more like a console gameplay...you can tell when his aim..is like watching someone in CS Source trying to play it on his keyboard.

honestly, halo 2 pc is still long from being released so i wouldn't judge so quickly until it hits retail.

looking forward to this on vista. :)

edit: i think some features got tone down in order to reduce lag in multiplayer since all pics' from that mode, not single player.

I guess that's what happen when you fit low polygon games onto high resolution. DUAL WIELDING!!!!!!!!!!11111one1one

About what I expected, like Halo 1 I figured it would be a straight port, and 2 years later the graphics in 2 aren't exactly impressive either. It's pretty impressive when you consider it's running on 5-year-old hardware, but I certainly wouldn't expect it to stand up to recent high-end PC games. Oh well, at least it uses bump mapping :D

Oh, and that second screenshot that the other person posted is from the Halo 2 mod for Halo PC.

This game puts all other incoming Vista-only titles to shame.

eh, even if it does turn out to look better, I think Halo is going to be a console-only affair for me :) Plus, I'll be too busy playing Crysis anyway :D

Surely Microsoft will be improving the texture resolutions, poly counts, lighting model, cause this could easily be run on xp with dx9 [or 8]. I mean, I really see why people hate microsoft, since vista offers virtually no improvements relavant to most people besides dx10, they simply make software only run on vista to make us buy it. Where are the dx10 effects and stuff??? Not seeing any dx9 effects for that matter. I've had more impressive bowel movements...

Not accurate..apperntly according to Crysis..DX9+Vista > Dx9+XP..also 64bit / Dual core gives improvement as well..and seeing Farcry and ****..these guys might have done a good job of using these features.

I was hooked on the original Halo on PC for a long time. And that looks no better then the original. And you need Vista to play it. Funny S***.

Did you guys really expect a whole new halo2? This is simply a polished-with-turd port, nothing more.
