What I find funny, is the amount of people that keep acting like it's ok to play the game at 800x600... If I wanted to look like my Xbox, I would play it on my Xbox!

Stop making excuses for them. If I pay for a game and it performs like crap, I'm going to warn other people about it.

Maybe it appears to be a "pack mentality" because EVERYONE is having issues with performance....

My god. Read the interview with the Gearbox guy...

He acts like people who are complaining about the performance issues are delusional, or following a "pack mentality"...

No buddy, the game just runs like shit. Period.

I like his comment about the timedemo too. "it's precise, it just isn't very accurate"... WTF is that supposed to mean?

Then he goes on to say that his team is just "more educated" than the average gamer so they understand why it runs like crap.... Well if you understand it, then do something to fix it genious! And add some coop in there while you're at it.

The Xbox doesn't use Direct X 9. So why in the hell did they switch it to Direct X 9 for the PC?

I bought Halo the day it came out.

Returned it 3 days later. I tried to like it.

Performance on it sucks. Gearbox isn't going to say: "Well yes, we consider the horrible performance an added feature."

If it looks like shit, smells like shit, and tastes like shit... It's probably shit.

Graphics aren't gameplay, this is true.

But when lackluster graphics run so slow that it ruins the gameplay you have a problem.

Yeah I know how the flashlight reacts with the walls and dirt. I have Halo on Xbox and PC.

This is no excuse for shit performance. And saying Unreal 2 and UT2K3 looked worse is silly. Share some of that good weed with me please.

Load up UT2K3 again. I think you have forgotten the amount of detail in their levels. Halo's interiors can't come close to the amount of details in an average UT2k3 map. Then take a look at an outdoor UT2k3 map. Or perhaps Unreal 2. You can't honestly believe Unreal 2 looks worse than Halo... Quake 3 has more detail in it's indoor levels...

Don't be a blind fanboy. I was seriously looking foward to Halo PC too. I'm just honest about it being a letdown.

If you want to make excuses for a company you have no financial interest in, be my guest. But they could have done a much better job on this port. I'm tired of hearing excuses for Gearbox. This is s very sloppy port.

I'd also like to add that you admit the game looks dated like a 2 year old game... Then why does it play so sloppy? All my other 2 year old games run at 100fps+. The only exlaination is just more excuses. Could of, would of, should of. They should have not released this game until the port was optimized to play smooth.

The reasons people keep complaining is because it looks worse than most newer PC games and it also plays worse.

If you play it you'll see. It performs like crap. I would be cool with that if it looked better than EVERY game out there but it doesn't. UT2k3's graphics blow this game away and it runs with ALL effects on and in high resolution.

I didn't buy a PC to play games at 640x480. Thats what my Xbox is for.

Unreal 2 runs smooth compared to this POS.

And like someone else said. The outdoor areas run fine. It's when you get inside the performance goes to crap. Which makes no sense because the detail in the interior levels is almost non-existant. Quake 3 looked better.

This game has unacceptable performance issues.

No excuses justify it. I'm not running ANY fps game in 800x600 on my PC except this one... It just runs like crap.

So much negativity in the game scene these days...

If it doens't seem like something you would want don't buy it! No one is "forcing" you to pay for it.

Myself, I'll be buying it.

The leak isn't going to put Valve out of business... They may have to rewrite parts of their engine, but it's not like they are on their death bed.

Some of you are too quick to jump on the conspiracy bandwagon. The "Anon leaker" said that the copy of HL2 that he leaked was all Valve had... Who are you going to believe? Valve, or a fucking theif?

Here is a question for the conspiracy nuts. Why does the beta have a lot of E3 levels in it? They are labeled E3_blah blah. It's because this guy only has the E3 beta...

Some people have pointed to the fact that the beta says something to the effect of "6 days until 9/30" in the console... Well when you have source code and some time, it's very easy to implant a message like that in the console... If Valve were that far behind, why in the hell would they be keeping up the charade privately?

Like I said are you going to believe Valve, or a piece of shit that actually calls himself "Osama Bin Leakin"....

HL2 will come out, and Valve will make more money than this script kiddie will ever hope to see in his miserable life.

God, has Valve ever heard of a PRESS RELEASE?

They announced the delay in a fucking email, and now the 30th is here and they don't even deliver on the benchmark.

Starting to get tired of Valve's PR machine, or lack thereof.

I wonder if the actual team that made HL2 is getting annoyed because their work is being delayed due to steam and marketing BS.

Xbox is also going to have Doom 3 and Deus Ex 2.

And to the guy that mentioned the PS2 and its 904983204943 exclusives... Who gives a shit? Really.

Xbox will have Halo 1/2, Knights of the Old republic, Doom 3, Deus Ex 2, and maybe Half Life 2. I'd take those 6 games over the billion exclusive PS2 games any day of the week.

And by exclusive I mean to the console world. Most good games are also on PC. (GTA 3 VC).

"Very nice. It also allows you to see if the person you are chatting to is in a game, view the game's info, and join that game from the IM if you wish."

Yeah Unreal Tournament had that feature in 1999 and I didn't need some bloatware app to use it.

I just don't see the need for a secondary app to play a game. It's that simple. In my mind the idiots are the ones that are willing to use this POS just becuase it comes with HL2. If it came with an EA Sports game you'd all be freaking out.
