    My goodness it is mindingly beautiful! Every thing looks great! I just glad someone is finally using some REAL "depth-of-field" effects.

    OUTSTANDING. That looks amazing. I can't believe we'll get a whole game like that. I hope I'm still impressed next Christmas! That's SO far away!

    Then again, I'll still be playing Halo 1 until then!

    Too bad they didnt have any action scenes, it looked pretty good, but alot of that was dark and inside the ship.

    Wow, wow, wow, and more wow.
    The trailer can now be downloaded from Gamespot in good 'ol Quicktime, it seems. Just follow the link above.
    I'm especially taken with the Master Chief's distinctive strut. He must've been working hard to perfect that while in deep space! [​IMG]
    CAN'T WAIT.

    Basically, what I think that people need to keep in mind, is that the trailer has been created using the halo2 engine to give people an idea of what the actual game will look like. Frankly, it looks as if Bungie skipped a generation with Halo2 and is going to straight to third-generation xbox game. I hope other developers are taking notes, because the bar is being raised considerably. It's time for some of those lazy cross-platform developers to realize they better start wringing the juice out of the xbox platform and in a serious way, otherwise, they're going to get left very far behind.

    Prediction: Unless Bungie decides to make Halo 3 for the Xbox, Halo 2 will be the best overall Xbox game ever made.

    And to any movie studios out there wanting to score big: buy the Halo license, hire a major actor (Bruce Willis would make a good Master Chief) and make the movie already!

    Was there sound? All I got was horrible static through the whole preview.

    Hey, Camp, I'm just climbing aboard the Halo2 hype machine.

    "Halo 2 is a lot like Halo 1, only it's Halo 1 on fire, going 130 miles per hour through a hospital zone, being chased by helicopters and ninjas... And the ninjas are all on fire, too."

    Well if Xbox drops to below 100 then I'll be playing it, otherwise oh well. Seeing as how there is only 1 game (Halo) that I would buy an xbox for.

    The only thing that I don’t like about this is the name. It should be
    “insert title here”… sequel to Halo
    Halo was the ring and from the looks of this trailer, the game will have nothing to do with a second Halo artifact. Try “Master Chiefs revenge… sequel to Halo” or “Beyond Halo”. I’m sure sick of the lame ass “stick a number on the end of it” title scheme that seems to be plaguing the video game industry as of late. Of course I’m not including Nintendo in that statement, they are really good for coming up with original titles even if I don’t understand the meaning behind them sometimes…
    Now where do I sign up to preorder this? [​IMG]
