Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Digital Foundry vs. Halo 4

Tagged games:

Ever wondered what would happen if Microsoft spent an absolute fortune in setting up its own elite internal studio and then made the best game it possibly could - where money is literally no object? Imagine if the Xbox platform holder set-up its own equivalent to Sony Santa Monica or Naughty Dog, an elite team with an unparalleled level of knowledge about the host console platform and the talent to get the most out of it. And what if this super-team was tasked with creating a new trilogy of games based on the most successful Xbox franchise of all-time?

Welcome to Halo 4, the first release from 343 Industries.

Just finished reading the whole thing. I was pretty impressed with the ingenuity of their shadow implementation to have greatly detailed, crisp looking shadows on hardware incapable of doing the processing completely accurately from a mathematical point of view.

Let's actually talk about the tech for a change. Keep it civil people

Halo 4 Graphics are nothing but outstanding!

"In an era where the likes of Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica have defined the graphical state-of-the-art with Uncharted and God of War, Xbox 360 finally has its own shot at the title - and it's a genuinely worthwhile, lavish and occasionally even breathtaking experience."

Being compared and even saying it has a shot to the tittle agaisnt those mosnters says everything about Halo 4.

Best Looking Shooter ive ever played on any Console.

very interesting read, expected nothing less seeing how good halo looks, VERY smart with what they did with the shadows

Stupendous. This is one amazing achievement on a console that enters its 8th year in a few weeks.

It is without doubt the best looking FPS and one of the very best looking games of the gen. All wrapped in an incredible soundtrack and packed with content. This game is a masterpiece of ingenuity, style and polish.

I changed my mind, it looks pretty darn good

A technilogical marvel as was expected after they hired 250+ of the most experienced and talented people in the industry.



I skimmed it.. busy fapping to the graphics

Halo 4 is truly impressive in every single way. I didn't think the amount of graphical detail was possible on the 360.

I really can't wait to see what 343 does with Halo 5 on the next Xbox.
