Halo 3 Beta Footage

I don’t have too much to say here, but I figured I may as well clean this out of my mental cache while I still remember it. A beta video of Halo 3 was released a few days ago, which I’m linking to here…

And, all other comments or criticisms on Halo aside … Watching this video really reminds me of watching Unreal Tournament 2004 … At 50% game speed. With weapons that kill in one shot. Not that UT2004 was really a great game, but it’s amusing to me to see these sorts of superhuman jumps being added into Halo that Epic thought would improve the gameplay of Unreal, but ended up screwing things up. The Spartan Laser looks disgusting too, a single shot kill weapon that’s perfectly accurate and infinite range being used in a game where jumping takes two seconds. It’s a good thing Halo is on the XBox, otherwise it’d be disgusting.
