I am no game pro but the graphics look great, the sound is great and I may even have to sneek into his room and give it a try.

I’m sorry, this is not related to the topic but rather a suggestion for improvement regarding reuter’s video advertisements that I sent to the website’s administrators. If anyone agrees, please join my in contacting the website and spreading this message. If each person could send this to three different blogs, then i believe we could make a large enough impact to improve the quality of this site:

I used to enjoy getting my online news via reuters.com, because I always found the reports to be unbiased and of substantial quality. But recently the advertisements on the video news have become too interruptive.

Other news websites (ex. CNN, CBC) promote video advertisements every 3rd news video (or none at all, only including text advertisements on side panels). The freedom to view videos without excessive advertisements is what I believe attracts viewers to online news sources including myself. To view the same advertisement 4 or 5 times in one session is very irritating, and I can see myself avoiding the products advertised specifically because of these overly frequent videos.

I hope my suggestions will help to improve the reuters website, until then I’ll get my news from other sources. I will also give my feedback to your main advertisers (including; Blackberry, Mac, etc) in hopes that you can work together with them to solve this problem.

Sincerely,

C. Sooka

You can explore, you can wage epic battles and yes you can beat the graphics with those other titles. I often wonder, did any one feel Gears was downright restrictive, made for those who who are ready and willing to completely follow the set course of the game, I think so. Halo = Freedom…Freedom to do what you want and freedom from replayability, maybe I am a fanatic, but that guys piont above was so dead on.

Your right in the case of using the differemt engines in different environments but you have to look at it all. there are points where your in gears and its kind of an open terrain, and alltho i havent seen or played Bioshock yet there are more chances that its the same way then not. but it all comes down to that Bungie made their own engine on this game. they started from the ground up for the 360 since the xbox is now obsolete. they not so simply couldve made it look better but being in the time frame they were on they would have to rob peter to pay paul. no i would rather it that peter and paul got the same amount(gameplay, storyline, Physics, graphics,etc…) but i mean noone has that kind of time. they i promise did the best they could to end the halo trilogy with a bang.

I feel people have failed to mention that people are comparing this to games that utilise the unreal engine. Bioshock and Gears are a marvel to look at; but are designed for close quaters and for that it is as good as it gets. A halo game could not be made with this engine because it would in turn lose everything that makes halo great; It’s scale, It’s physics and It’s stable framerate.
