Yes it’s an understatement, but I’m ridiculously excited for Halo 4.

While I’ve previously shown apprehension on the direction of the game, I’m still eager to see what 343 is doing with the franchise, and where we’ll be going next.

I decided to pull together a bunch of comparison screens showing the visual differences between Halo 3, Halo: Reach and Halo 4.

The results are staggering, and I think you’ll see it too.

The format below (in each column from left to right): Halo 3, Reach, Halo 4.






November 6, 2012

Those screenshots should have adequately invoked the amount of hype that I’m attempting to generate.

Keep checking OXCGN for continued coverage of Halo 4, including any hands-on we’ll get at E3 2012.

In the meantime, what do you think of the screens? Is the leap phenomenal, or only logical?

I'm an American from steamy Louisiana, one of the most electronically deprived areas of the United States. I've gamed since I was four years old as a result, and plan to do it onto my deathbed. I discovered I could write in June of 2010 when I started a little site called Fans of The Genre with a few friends, and that eventually collapsed three months after due to social lives kicking in. No less than two weeks after that I discovered OXCGN via the community gamer gab competition, and become a staff member shortly after. In February of 2011 I was welcomed to the Editorial staff, then in March of 2012 I was promoted to co-owner... and here I am!

  1. I am disappointed actually, the graphics are taking a turn away from the vivid pallette of color present to us by halo 3. The halo 4 art style is a little more faithful, but still a long way from the bright color of the older games


  2. Waiting for games is the most pain i seem to suffer on a daily basis. This game is no exception to that pain.
