According to one of the people on the Halo 2 for Vista developing team, Vista is really coming along nicely. They still have some bugs, but they are being worked out very quickly, and graphical enhancements are making many of the people on the developer team call it "Halo 2.5". There have been a lot of artistic enhancements making all the characters look nice at the developers preferred resolution of 1920x1200. At that resolution, the developers can get Halo 2 for Vista running at 60 frames per second at maximum settings.

there is no way that is an xbox, those are way better. Every thing is much smoother and the graphics have more detail.

The bottom one is probably Xbox (press X...) but H2V was designed to be able to use the Xbox360 controller on PC so that may be it.

thats true, maybe they have that version set up to use the xbox controller. But ive played a lot of halo on the 360 and the xbox and I know those are enhanced gfx.

</div>On what hardware? LOL That's the important part and they left it out, or I missed it. That is mostly pointless if that's on quad SLI X6800 system overclocked to 4GHZ on phase <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />

Seriously, screenies look good, I hop they have some new levels as well, cause I'm getting tired of the same old levels in HALO 2, I probbaly wouldn't buy HALO 2 for the PC just for slightly nicer graphics......it would be nice if they added bots for multiplayer too.......sometimes I want to play and can't get a group together, or can only get 1 or 2 people to show.......bots with variable AI strength wuld be great........and something I hope they put in HALO 3 as well....

I love Halo 2 on my 360 but I dont think I am going to be getting the PC version as the Multiplayer on Halo 2 360 is just amazing and cannot be beat. GFX look nice though.<br><br>

If you frequent Bungie.net and read their weekly updates you'd know that Frankie is always saying that he highly prefers the 360 controller when he's playing Vista and I'd bet that most of the Bungie staff feels that way since they've been hardcore Xbox/360 gamers since they started testing Halo I'd imagine and are super used to it, most of them probably don't ever game on mouse and keyboard.
