I only have one gripe with this game, and it's the lack of new multiplayer.

I will get over it though, seems like we have a lot of practicing to do in single player and co-op to get the hard cheevos.... Beating the Library in 30 mins on Legendary I'm looking at you.

My compaint is the terminals and skulls. I understand why they are there but that alone ruined the "classic" touch. They needed a classic and remix mode. However that sounds dumb so howsabout no skulls and no terminals.

But that bothers me 2% sooooooo THIS GAME IS GONNA ROCK!

Most probably bitch at the Library achievements and possibly achievements where you have to kill all the elites in a level and kill 100 infection forms. Never know could be hard.

FYI, the skulls and terminals don't appear at all in the classic view. If you're looking at one while on the updated graphics and switch over, it literally disappears.

Well technically they have Classic and Remix mode. When you play in classic Halo mode, the skulls, their effects, and the terminals become inactive. It is 100% original Halo. The only issue is you won't be able to get 100% achievement completion, but than the addition of achievements eliminates the concept of being 100% classic. :p

Lack of Live multiplayer and the Library achievements are my only complaints. I remember way back in the day playing through the whole game and beating every level on every difficulty solo so most of the difficulty cheevos shouldn't be too hard.

I'm not absolutely 100% sure about this, but I'm pretty sure I read that was the case. If you have skulls and you switch to classic, the effects should become disabled until you switch back over.

Hey. We're on a website where people get extreme satisfaction from achievements that are, in the ultimate ruling of life, utterly useless beyond bragging rights. If that's his idea of bragging rights than I don't see any harm with it. This thread was gonna happen eventually anyway (as will a Achievement Guide Thread and an achievement trading thread.)

This is what happens when you create a bitching thread before the game is released, people have nothing game related to bitch about so they turn on each other!!!

Apart from the mulitplayer part of the game, i can't really see what you would bitch about, this is the game that started it all, if there was something to bitch about, we would have done it 10 years ago.

why is there even a "classic mode", isn't there already a classic version of halo on the marketplace?

SuperSkyline89
10-18-2011, 05:22 PM
I'm not impressed by the Kinect exclusive analysis feature. I really don't care why they did that because it's total BS, until Kinect ships with every console having Kinect exclusive features in a normal game is nothing but an underhanded attempt at a cash-grab.

At the very least the game should automatically detect things and analyze them.

why is there even a "classic mode", isn't there already a classic version of halo on the marketplace?

Seriously? You can have a game that puts two games in one and you're asking why? How about so people don't have to buy Anniversary AND the original to play both?

I'm sure there will be a few achievements for the title update. Maybe it'll be bumped up to 1600g...and I'm personally hoping for one final map pack by late next spring, before Halo 4 arrives, to allow players a good chance to have fun with all the Reach maps one last time.

Well... the thought has crossed my mind that they DID only give us 5 multiplayer maps from Halo 1 (well, 6 including Hemorrhage) Point is we're still missing some classic maps like Sidewinder, Chiron, and Boarding Action. Plus there's the obvious possibility of us getting a full-on Halo 2 remake map pack (a re-release of 3 of the 4 greatest Halo maps ever made. Relic, Turf, and Terminal. We already got Head Long :p) They didn't have DLC for ODST, but that doesn't mean there isn't a chance for DLC on CEA. So I say take Reach up to 1550 or 1600 and leave a little more room for an h1/h2 mappack to cap out at the final 1750 (and it says something when somebody wants them to hold back points so he can spend more money on extra content.)

I kind of wish it was going to include Reach's DLC like ODST included all of Halo 3's DLC. That's not really a huge deal though.

The fact that the Analyze feature is only available if you have a Kinect is really shitty though.

I'm more curious as to how the new Reach Achievements will play into the rest of the achievment list. Will the maps be made available for people that don't buy H:CEA or will you be required to buy one game just to get achievements in another? I noticed none of the new achievements are level or playlist specific, so maybe they'll just be made available for people that don't buy it. I considered the idea of the cheevos coming with the Title Update, but MS's rule is that achievements can only be added with DLC updates, so either they're breaking the rule or they've found some kind of workaround or they're screwing over a lot of Completion whores.

They're not including them " because most people who buy this are going to have Reach already." Are they serious, what kind of bullshit reasoning is that? As if everyone that bought ODST didn't already have Halo 3?

343 has impressed me with the overall game and I absolutely love the Anniversary achievements but they're starting to piss me off with the small stuff.

I'm pretty sure that I heard in one of the videos that the maps from H:CEA will be made available at a later date to people who just own reach, but I can't 100% confirm that. Although 7 maps might cost a lot, if 3 are 800. Maybe 1600/2000?

You're able to get the Halo 3 achievements from ODST in just Halo 3 (assuming you bought the map pack, since they're map specific) so I would imagine that if someone with Reach were to pull of 3 headshots in a row after a potential update on 11/15, they would get an achievement.

From a technical standpoint, I believe it would just be easier for it to work that way. The game would go "Someone's playing Reach multiplayer! Yay! They did something!" without worrying how they accessed it

Besides, they have broken/rewritten the rules for achivements for halo quite a few times now.

even dead island didnt have a bitching thread this quick:confused:

*i just wish they didnt try to mesh halo reach in with Combat Evolved. they are two seperate games, released like 9 years apart. reach was my least favorite game of the series, i dont get why drag it into this classic? in my opinion nothing was wrong with this game, it set the stage for all those console shooters to make it big. before that it was all PC gaming for shooters.

they can say in defense, "well we dont want the reach MP to suffer, blah blah." too bad the population count is already low as hell, i dont remember ever seeing the number that low consistently in halo. almost a year later, black ops averages around 650-700,000 people online.. reach hits 150,000 on a good day if its lucky. i just dont see why drag on the game, when its obvious most halo fans have looked elsewhere for entertainment.

SuperSkyline89
10-21-2011, 04:20 PM
There's a very simply reason they're bringing out more Reach achievements. Gamers have proven time and time again that they will buy any DLC the developers release just for the achievements.

The developers' only job is to make money, we as gamers have given them a simple way to do so with DLC and achievements.

Personally I wish they didn't bring out new Reach achievements because I'm past the point of caring about Reach, it was the weakest game so far. Since the new maps are included with Anniversary I'll probably end up doing the online achievements at some point but I still haven't bought the Defiant Map Pack and I probably won't until the price drops or it becomes free.

If 343i/Microsoft was such a greedy fucking company like you whiners think, Anniversary would cost $60 as is. They could get away with it to, the work they put into the title definitely warrants it. If they did price it that way, don't get all high-horsed and pretend you'd boycott, you'd bend over and take it. End of.

Now, keeping in mind that it's a budget title ($40), if Anniversary came with the Reach DLCs it would definitely cost $60. There's no ands ifs or buts about it, expecting otherwise is unrealistic and you're obviously going to be disappointed (ie bitching in this thread!). If you would be ok with that trade-off, you should damn well be ok with buying the DLC individually because it's the same cost.

I like to think this is more than just a remake. The complete enhancement of the graphics engine, the total re-mastering of the soundtrack, the addition of terminals and skulls and online co-op. As far as an HD remake goes, CEA raises the bar on what we should expect from a re-release. Resident Evil, Metal Gear, Silent Hill, etc... should be ashamed of themselves for the rehashes they're giving us. No effort for a quick pot of money.

Halo: Reach DLC isn't included in Halo Anniversary because the game is only $40.

Halo Anniversary and Halo ODST are similar in the fact that both don't come shipped with an in-game multiplayer (excluding Firefight). Seeing as ODST was $60, and Anniversary is only $40, it's only natural that Anniversary doesn't include free map packs. Expecting a $40 game to include $20 worth of DLC is pure silliness.

My complaint is a really strange one, but:

I don't really like that they're including headlong/"breakneck" because it's from Halo 2.
I know that they've said that they aren't yet planning on remaking the second game (although I believe 343i said if the demand was high enough) but the inclusion of a map from 2 reinforces that idea to me...

Besides though, it isn't even really a complaint, since I love the map. It just seems rather strange to me. :p

Well, I don't exactly like or dislike it. It has the same mysterious feeling I felt seeing that ring for the first time back in 2001. But it's just not the same. My main point of concern is those strange flaps layered on the sides. I want to see Installation 04, in a more proper, slightly flatter way as it is in the original game. Any thoughts on this? Or any word if this is actually official? Has 343i taken out those flaps on the sides in the final version? :confused:

I must have spent over 60 hours trying to get that stupid thing. Tried all the different methods I saw on YouTube, tried by reading forums, asking others for help, until I realized it must be fake and only obtainable by mods.

When you first said this, I thought there were going to be large(r) walls on the inside of the ring. As once you "touch down" if you looked to the sides there would be steel colored walls lining the distant horizon.

I don't particularly care for this aesthetic change, but it doesn't really change the game's viewpoint during the actual gameplay sooooooo

I'd have to see the new ring model in the game to decide how I feel about it. If you can see the giant flaps past the edge of the ring while playing the game I think that would be pretty cool.

I wonder if they have any technical reason to add them in, like if they serve some purpose to the ring itself or if this is just purely a visual upgrade.

I see what you're saying, but apparently that skull - for casual users - isn't easy to get. Hardcore nuts like me, however, will achieve it. Infinite ammo skull may indeed make some of the achievements nonthreatening, but I know I won't be using it to 100% this game.

DarkReign2021
11-12-2011, 12:16 AM
All I can say is I wish casual gamers luck getting the skull. Especially if this rumor is true about not being able to pick them up. Used to be a good player could get it, drop it, and let somebody else pick it up form an easier vantage, but now these grenade jump ones are literally going to require you to grenade jump (would be funny if these were only available in Solo mode anyway.)

Even than, it's not going to do much good. When you've got a shotgun on the Library and you're being ambushed from all sides, it doesn't really matter how much ammo you have if you can't shoot everything coming at you. As for Rockets, I see players blowing themselves up more often than not. Especially with the flood being in-your-face combatants. It gives infinite ammo, not infinite health, so it's only like a band-aid for lesser players.

Once you pick up a skull, can you activate it by starting a mission in the menu? Or is it like Halo 2 where you have to get a skull again when you want the effect back if you turn off your xbox?

I don't have the game yet, but my understanding is that it works like Halo 3: find a skull once to have it as an option in the menus every time you go to start a level thereafter.

Wow. I gotta say, between the needless double posting and some idiotic statements you've made such a fool of yourself right here.

First of all, 343 made zero changes to gameplay and only added the graphical face lift. They wanted to keep the game play exactly like it played 10 years ago. This was there intention. Had you even bothered to find out about this before you wouldn't be complaining now.

Second,
it's still halo, which means bugs everywhere !
Huh, what Halo games have you been playing? Out of all the game franchises out there Halo is definitely not known for having many or major bugs.

Third,

The old graphics are supposed to look shit, THEY'RE OLD. The whole fucking point is to show you how graphics have advanced over 10 years.

Halo doesn't and has never had bugs everywhere.

The Warthog isn't a piece of shit NOW, those are OLD PHYSICS. But if you can't understand old graphics this is over your head as well. I probably shouldn't even try to explain OLD AI.

One complaint and one complaint only. What the fuck did they do to my Sniper Targeting Reticule? I heard the sound effect it makes when firing and I thought "okay, I can live with that", but that reticule is absolutely terrible. I want my nice and simple miniature circle back. It was a lot more precise and didn't obscure the enemy near as much when you're trying to line up a headshot. The achievement for clearing the first canyon on T&R is proving to be a bitch because I can't see anything (that and I guess I ought to turn off the Grunt Funeral Skull.)

My other complaint is that they took out the triple wielding glitch on PoA. I'm still going to toy around with it a bit and see if I can trigger it, but no luck so far.

Other than that though, no complaints. I have actually been surprised by the enemy AI though. For supposedly not tampering with it, they seem to be doing a handful of new tricks (Elites mounting turrets at the beginning of T&R, grunts crossing from the left side to right side of the underground bridge area, etc...) Curious to see what other sneaky little things try to take me by surprise.

You are obviously 0% of a halo fan, you nazi zombie cod fanboy, your arguments are so completely invalid that you don't even have a right to criticize 343 on Halo 4, Gtfo honestly. 2nd of all, I think this thread needs to be turned into "Jackals are mother freaking pain in the asses on legendary and need to shot point blank in the butt with a hunters fuel rod cannon" everytime I see them while on legendary they give me more trouble than an elite, its like the assault rifle almost does nothing to them, and the pistol is only good if you score a headshot which honestly I find harder to accomplish those in this game.

Also texture pop. Gets me all nostalgic for Halo 2.

I've had 1 console lock up on the main menu, and some audio weirdness (2 music tracks playing at once).

But I love it anyway, I've put in about 14 hours and still having a blast so far.

Edit: And the vibration will cut out sometimes for no reason, usually only noticeable when firing the assault rifle full auto. Could be my controller, but haven't noticed this in any other game (although the motor is loud)

I think the major problem with this game is that it hasn't aged very well. Don't get me wrong, the original Halo in my opinion is (and remains) the best game in the series, but nostalgia and updated graphics can only carry it so far.

While I do praise the team for keeping the original game intact, the remastered graphics can lead to a lot of visual problems, such as frame rate issues, pop-in and slow loading textures (a great example I had was when I pulled out the shotgun and it was in it's "classic" appearance, only for it to load to the newer shotgun model a few seconds later!). The new cut scenes are also pretty terrible as well, at least in terms of lip syncing and character models. Which is a shame, as the character models for the enemies look pretty damn sweet. Also, CORTANA IS MEANT TO BE PURPLE IN THIS GAME DAMMIT, NOT BLUE :p

I think they really fucked things up with the multiplayer. I would've been happier with them making the multiplayer local only than using the Reach engine since it just does not feel like I'm playing Halo: CE when it's the Reach engine.

Also, god damn is legendary hard. Much harder than the others. It's taking a whole lot of willpower not to resort to using the Bandanna skull. But, I'll feel damn accomplished at the end of it all. Plus, I got the Speed Reader achievement on my first playthrough of The Library :)

And is it just me, or is the AI yelling out a lot more stuff I don't remember? The Marines say "Crap!" once every 4 minutes or so, and I swear I even heard a grunt say "Asshole!"

Hope someone can prove me wrong here, but I'm thinking that the Maw on LASO will be impossible. Last night I was playing around, showing a friend the "Food Nipple Grunt," and threw on Grunt B-Day, Piņata, and Boom for fun.

Everything was fine until I get to the top of the elevator just before the timer starts. While walking through the bay with the warthogs explosions go off. The first two times I died from this, but later I was able to sneak in and lose all but 3 bars of health and grab one of the med packs there.

This was on Easy, so I'm wondering if you can even survive those blasts on Legendary. If anyone else feels like giving it a shot and posting their results, I'll be thankful. I'm not about to attempt that level LASO until I know it can be done.

The warthog ride didn't give me any extra trouble. I was able to make it to the end of the run with Boom on, but died in the explosions at the very end. The game froze on the attempt after that, so I gave up.

I was stuck on level three and watched a walk through video(not something I would normally do) and what was the next bit was even worse than the bit I was struggling with.

I just have a couple of problems with the technical side of the game.

1. Some animations are "meh".
Some of the animations, especially in the faces of the characters in the updated graphics, just feel unfinished. There's no "emotion" on their faces in the updated graphics. All the human characters just looked bored. Cortana's head darts around like a pigeon.

2. No campaign Theater mode.
Theater mode has been a part of the Halo-verse since Halo 3, and it would've been nice to see it brought back for Anniversary. To have been able to record gameplay videos and take screenshots from every angle in both the updated and original graphics engines would've been a much welcomed addition.

My biggest complaint about Halo CE Anniversary is they used the Halo Reach multiplayer but did not include any Halo Reach maps. ODST wasn't the best of the series but at least they included the full Halo 3 multiplayer with it. Overall, I would have been happier if they would have included the full Halo Reach multiplayer rather than giving us 6 remastered maps (btw they didn't even bring back blood gulch from what i've seen) and the campaign is still fun but doesn't do enough to redeem the game for having probably the worst multiplayer in a halo game since halo wars.

I've heard several complaints about CEA, including the fact that terminals and skulls were added. Why didn't 343 Industries just keep the same music and graphics, repackage CE, and call is CE Anniversary?? Seriously? Look, the entire idea of the CEA was to appease and please Halo Nation. It is not a big money maker!! Why would MS release CEA on November 15th? From a marketing perspective, that would seem like a sloppy and stupid move. They released it on November 15th as part of the bigger picture.... get it? Anyway, I understand the grumblings... That's why this forum is here. But I'm very impressed with how little actually changed and how close to the original CEA IS but making it better. I give props to 343 Ind. on this one. I thought they were going to sell out big time, and for the most part, they did NOT.

I think I've run into a dead end in the game in the "Two Betrayals," segment. It's when master chief deactivates some blue beam by walking into it. After completing that task one is to "go through tunnels to canyon A." The only way out of the room is through a passageway to a parapet overlooking a cliff. There is Flood on the inside and Covenant on the outside including a few banshees buzzing around. Once they have all been eliminated there is nothing to do but stand around. I tried bringing a banshee down to fly off the parapet to the marker 300+ meters below but the banshee is never in working order once on the parapet. There is another platform out from the end of the parapet but it is too far to jump to by about 3x. There is only the chamber with the blue beam, the parapet, and the passage between them. Stuck.

I agree with the last half you said, 343i did a good job. What you said about just keeping the same graphics and music, they did u just have the option to switch to what you like, old or new. The skulls and terminals are awesome and if you dont like any of the new stuff play with old graphics and classic music. Im sorry to say but i think your a tiny bit retarded.

I agree. I didn't like how they just randomly threw that at you out of nowhere. Plus it was just an animated re-enactment of a scene from 'The Flood.' That would've been better left for a short animation in Waypoint like they've been doing with the short stories. I wanted more Forerunner and Guilty Spark stories.

Tyger7
11-26-2011, 09:04 AM
The problem is the lag, specifically in co-op. I have played online for years and have never had such bad lag. When I play, I just expect it. There is a huge delay that I have had to adapt to. Literally it has to be like a full 1.5 seconds. You turn left and stop turning, and your guy is still turning. You basically play with a horrible delay. When someone gets an achievement, the whole game almost crashes.

That being said, most of the time at the end of the level since we are both unlocking achievements, it kicks me out and does not give me credit for beating the level on legendary.

Am I wrong? Is this only me and the person I play with? Why would the studio release a game that has such a poor online experience. I guess I could test it with a different partner just in case, but it's just almost unplayable. The new graphics are impressive, but that's about it.

Also, with the new graphics, why did not they place some new colors, designs, numbers, anything....to show you that you are in a new area? Some of the levels have so many rooms and areas that look the same. I end up going backwards sometimes. Like why not just throw in some arrows or maybe even build something on the radar. I am so tired of seeing the same area over and over and over. I know it's 10 years old but even Golden Eye on the 64 had more level variation.

The coding for Halo: CE was never made to work with network co-op. So in the short time they had, it was probably a challenge to maintain stability.

That being said, while there are/were dips for me, co-op was pretty consistent. Seeing a lot of complaints about the lag (frame rate issues) though.

Halo 4 will be fine. Reach's co-op is pretty stable and that's the engine they're using for 4.

Hope someone can prove me wrong here, but I'm thinking that the Maw on LASO will be impossible. Last night I was playing around, showing a friend the "Food Nipple Grunt," and threw on Grunt B-Day, Piņata, and Boom for fun.

Everything was fine until I get to the top of the elevator just before the timer starts. While walking through the bay with the warthogs explosions go off. The first two times I died from this, but later I was able to sneak in and lose all but 3 bars of health and grab one of the med packs there.

This was on Easy, so I'm wondering if you can even survive those blasts on Legendary. If anyone else feels like giving it a shot and posting their results, I'll be thankful. I'm not about to attempt that level LASO until I know it can be done.

The warthog ride didn't give me any extra trouble. I was able to make it to the end of the run with Boom on, but died in the explosions at the very end. The game froze on the attempt after that, so I gave up.

It can be done on LASO but it requires luck and you need to pace your hog so its out of any waves way that uses grenades, so basically you can kiss going for that 1 min left on the clock cheevo. I swear it took me 30+ attempts its like 50% chance you won't make it out of the hog hanger and round the 1st corner. Someone on this board mentioned actually getting that 1 min cheevo on LASO so my hats off to him and anyone who can do it.

My sole complaint and its only a small issue, is not being able to use grunt funeral in Installation 04. That would have been so damned funny, shame really you couldn't unlock it within Reach for the other firefights as well.
