So if you didn't know 343 industries are releasing a new and improved version of Halo: Combat Evolved.

They are leaving the core gameplay alone, and looks like they've improved the graphics a lot.

A cool feature is that you can switch between the original graphics and the new and improved graphics.

Here's a trailer



I am excite!

It looks awesome. But I don't want to pay full price for a game I already have that has aged well graphically. They should have just released it together with Halo 4 or something like other games have done in the past. But they get more money this way.

I'll probably get it for my collection when it's really cheap.

I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere they were not going to charge for a full priced game. But i'm sure we'll find out soon.

Haha, it's funny this thread opens as MightyApe just announced this yesterday: http://www.mightyape...rsary/18246899/

By the looks of it, they are charging for a full game...I'll still buy it.

A couple of pre-order bonuses listed on halo waypoint, but nothing about a collectors edition...

I've only just gone through Halo CE, so prob won't get it on relesae either. It looks nice though. I'm pretty interested in the mp, should be fun times. Thats the only broken thing in the pc version, it kinda works, but is pretty f***ed these days.

Graphics look great. Although Halo CE graphics now were no slouch on pc, obviously not as good as this, but i was surpried how crisp and green and bright it still looks, even after all the years. This anniversary look better though.

I'm not that excited by this, but I'll buy it anyhow. I finished the first Halo 6 years so it'll be good to go through it again.

Edit: the AI still looks a bit average.

I know, I just don't know why you shoot people for 10 seconds and they won't die.

Hmm I wonder how cheap it will be on nzgameshop. No pricing yet, but I maybe might pick this up sooner rather than later.

Thats the one thing I've always hated with Halo MP. Takes pretty much a full mag to kill someone. If there is a 2nd guy behind him you're screwed.

This is the thing I kinda like about halo. In cod like games you are so fragile, random nades, random cross map shots and you've got no chance if someone shoots you in the back. In halo you can always put up a fight.

Also since it requires more to 'kill the guy' in halo team shooting is awesome, encouraging team-werks.

In halo 3 the BR had enough rounds in a clip to take down 9 people (if you 4-shot them perfect every time) and the DMR in reach has 15 rounds in a clip which can take down 3 people with perfect shooting.

SWAT gametype is crazy intense, with one shot to the head-dead.

I like halo.

Same exact AI code as Halo 1. AI hasn't really changed too much since then though. Most fps still have horrible AI.

not sold on the new mp level art direction. too fancy.

rather they just put more detail into the old textures.

hope they've kept all the physics and gun damage the same. the return of the mighty pistol!
