Imagine playing Halo 1,2,3,ODST,Reach, or 4 in the Graphics quality of Crysis 2? If you think this would be awesome or not please vote above and leave comments or questions. cool.gif

Imagines fighting an Invisible Elite in Halo 1 while being strafed by a Banshee in 1080P and all the awesomeness of the 16xAA and Extreme Textures and Tessellation of DX11... Gets shivers wheee.gif

EDIT: Typo in Poll, Option 2 is "I like it now..."

Games have distinctive art styles, and honestly i would like halo to look like crysis, halo has slightly "cartoony" graphics. Lets take borderlands for example, great graphics, but make it look like crysis and it would be "just another shooter"

I respectfully disagree, it's the game play mechanics that make them so diverse sure graphics style does make a difference but let's face it, if you placed weapons down on the map and disabled versatile load outs in Call of duty/battlefield it would play more like Halo right? and think if Halo had customizable loadouts and gave Perks and Killstreaks? but you change the graphics and leave the mechanics alone and you have a different perception on how you play the game but not how/when you get that rocket launcher/sniper rifle on the map?

It just adds a different visual experience that some may or may not enjoy? think of it this way
Halo:CE remastered is coming out this year and 343 announced that you'll have the ability to switch the graphic style back to Oldschool or back to Modern as the situation warrants, in real time while your playing, would it change the way the game plays? no that grunt over there on the Knoll will still throw that grenade in either mode...

Crysis 2 did not impress me with its graphics, even with DX11 and high res texture. Lack of AA, microstuttering and horrid multi-gpu supports make me say I never want to hear about Cryengine 3 again.

Now I have high hopes for Frostbite 2. I hear it will be used by other EA titles...

I never had a problem with these issues headscratch.gif my experience with Crysis 2 was more than Excellent, I thoroughly enjoyed the game on all settings and I still play the Campaign (I don't play Multi-player) I found the Graphics to really Impressive.

I love it when you ninja kill an Alien. ninja.gif

EDIT: Then again the Cry Engine 3 was Optimized for Nvidia and not for AMD/ATI platforms
(If game producers would stop kneeling before the graphics industries bickering and rivalry then these games would be twice as good as they are now in my opinion)
