    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] iLeGeND2 Reach at least tried new things. Halo 2 felt like a rehash of halo 1. From the first level being in a ship to the copy paste nature of flood levels.[/quote]H2 was more daring. It drastically changed CE (talking Elites, casual friendly). Reach tried to be like CE while deliberately trying to destroy Halo (with it's cinematic approach, big teases, fail friendly AI and vehicle physics, and lack of epic moments). So I don't see how H2 felt like a rehash of CE. In fact, that claim is an insult to CE, even more than Reach's very existence which itself is an insult. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Mark V guy [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] iLeGeND2 Nope, Halo 3 is superior in every way possible. Reach at least tried new things. Halo 2 felt like a rehash of halo 1. From the first level being in a ship to the copy paste nature of flood levels.[/quote] Halo 2 was very different to Halo 1. Halo 2 introduced loads of new weapons, an entirely new side to the story through the Arbiter, a deep and intriguing story, humanising the covenant and making them interesting, introducing a Flood intelligence, new characters, new environments, new vehicles, it is in no way a re hash of Halo CE.[/quote]People will go so far to discredit H2, even asserting superiority of a sequel (H3) over the game that started it all (CE)... it's best if I leave this forum permanently so I don't have to suffer.

When Halo 1 drops frames, it's due to obvious high stress and it'll go away when you get to clearly lower-stress areas. But in Halo 3 (and CEA), the game will occasionally just start dropping a frame or two every second or so, and it drives me absolutely nuts.[/quote]I see.

That's Rockslider's dissertation on issues he has with Halo 3's animation style; it's more an aesthetic complaint than a technical one. I'm talking about framerate problems. Specifically, judder. Judder is when frames don't get displayed for even intervals on a display, causing something to feel choppy even when the overall framerate is staying reasonably decent. In Halo 3's case, it happens when the game starts to drop a frame (or do something stupid to similar effect) every second or so.[/quote]Does it affect the looking speed?

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Sliding Ghost Well I was under the impression that it only lagged when there were high AI numbers.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] sdnomdE [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Sliding Ghost The original CE suffers from frame rate drop? WTF. Are you sure you're not on Anniversary?[/quote] Actually, Halo 1 [i]does[/i] suffer from framerate drop on native hardware. Probably more than Anniversary does, though Anniversary drops frames so ungracefully that I prefer the original game's performance as a whole. The only spot which is decidedly in CEA's favour performance-wise is the Maw run, which functions like an absolute joke in a few places on the original Xbox. I'm always baffled when people claim that the original Halo runs silky smooth. It's commonly claimed, but totally false. I think maybe people remember it like that because it feels pretty good due to [i]usually[/i] running fine and [i]never[/i] doing things like going into perpetual judder mode (unlike CEA and Halo 3, ugh).[/quote]Well I was under the impression that it only lagged when there were high AI numbers.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Mark V guy On PC CE usually runs well with high textures and high particles. Also, to get maximum fun out of Halo 3 I suggest just playing it through on easy[/quote]So did you try disabling those settings I mentioned above? Unfortunately, Easy difficulty doesn't yield the results that I expect. 4 Arby's with power weapons vs. a bunch of Brutes doesn't last long on Easy difficulty, even with skulls on. But on Legendary, the fights are much more intense and fun.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Sliding Ghost [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Mark V guy I was playing Keyes in the PC, and I don't mean scripted explosions but just explosions everywhere from enemies. The first battle with the spec ops elites is ruined by chaotic flood carrier forms, grenade slamming grunts and fuel rod guns all at the same time, it makes the game lag up and sends your body all the way to other side of the room.[/quote]Are you talking about the room with the Proto-Gravemind? If you keep the door closed, you can preserve those Covies for later battling. Just bypass them after killing all the Flood, there's a health pack nearby for replenishing and go a little bit further for a checkpoint then you can fight them without Flood interference. Also, that (you're playing it on the PC) might explain why there was lag. Go to settings and disable decals, shadows, and select no-vsync. That will drastically improve performance. Also try adjusting particles. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Mark V guy In Halo 3 I loved all the missions. The easiness of it all is fun.

I tried to share some things about the level but they're pointless when everyone's using the noob combo and don't need any elaborate means of killing... Tsavo Highway feels too limited with it's invisible barriers. Floodgate has -blam!- Elite allies and is simply infested with Pure Forms. The Ark starts off great and has great vehicular combat but the end is where things get ugly (also, this was the one chance for a Chieftain that behaved differently from other Chieftains). Halo is too short, the pyramid battle isn't that satisfying (why shotgun/mauler/rocket/fuel rod Flood and Tank Forms as bosses? Juggernauts would have been way better), and the hog run is like fighting the game at the same time.

If you're gonna disrespect Halo 1 at least get a new username. This post just sickens me like no other.[/quote] Lol. Well I actually started with Reach and called myself that because I like the helmet Also, I only judge Halos on campaigns, and I while I like Halo CEs campaign, there are too many poor missions which bring it down below the standard of Halo 2, which is by far the best FPS campaign I have ever played, and Halo 3, which is my second favourite campaign. In fact there are only four missions in CE which I actually like, those are Truth and Reconciliation, Silent Cartographer, Assault on the Control Room and Keyes. All the others are, and not to sound harsh, garbage. In Halo 2 I like all the missions apart from Sacred Icon and Quarantine Zone but even then I would happily play through them if I was doing a complete playthrough. I would never ever do another playthrough of CE's campaign. Whenever I play CE I play through Truth and Reconciliation, Silent Cartographer and Assault on the Control Room and then skip to Keyes. In Halo 3, none of the missions lack replay quality. Not even Cortana. I would happily do a playthrough of Halo 3 anyday and enjoy every single mission I would also do a play through of ODST and enjoy every mission. In Reach I enjoyed all the missions apart from Long Night of Solace and New Alexandria. So I dont dislike CE as a whole, but the fact that the majority of the missions are garbage means it is my least favourite Halo. The good missions are good enough for me to actually like the game because of them. EDIT: In fact, Keyes sucks as well. Just played it and its just a chaotic mess of explosions and FPS dropping [Edited on 05.05.2012 3:22 PM PDT]
