See How Halo 2: Anniversary's Cinematics for Xbox One Stack Up Against The Original - Video Comparison

The original Halo 2 released on the Xbox and PC on November 9th, 2004. Obviously with any 10 year old game, the graphics aren’t impressive when faced against the games of today.

Halo 2: Anniversary is in development and will launch with the Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One, and with Microsoft revealing a new Cinematic Trailer for the Halo 2 portion made by the CG masters at Blur Studios, we just couldn’t keep ourselves from seeing how far the looks have changed.

We sat down, put on our spartan gear, and combed through all of the Halo 2 cutscenes to find the originals and put them side by side with their remade versions from the trailer. We think we did a pretty good job, but now’s your time to decide.

Check out the comparison video below:

One of the few Anime Nerds that won't scare you off during a conversation. A gamer that is, and has always been open to trying new experiences regardless of the resolution or company behind the game. You may think that you enjoy fighters, but this guy has played them all & still spends his time looking for more. Whether he's fighting pink stretchy aliens as Goku, battling reanimated ninjas as Naruto, or warding off swarms of hollowed soldiers as the Chosen Undead, this gamer loves to take the role of the hero in any genre.
