      The game doesn't tell you that and it should start with the original version by default.

              2. You can only switch back the sfx and music in the MCC re-re-release of the anniversaries
              3. Both anniversaries are infamous for using Gearbox PC ports that are widely mocked for barely working.

                The "widely mockery" that people mysteriously began to care about after some eceleb told them to do so only affected minor details such as keyes' model, shield color bugs, and fog. They've also all since been 'fixed' to appeal to said ironic fans.

              CEA was lazy incompetent trash on every level but H2A was a good remaster. Halo 2 graphics pushed the original xbox to its limit and aged worsed than the first game, so a remaster was more beneficial to it. The anniversary graphics maintained the original style much better and actually had proper darks and lighting. It's the best Halo has ever looked and btfo both 5 and Infinite. The cutscenes looked amazing even if the camera work was a bit basic. The only complaint you could have is subjectively not liking the new music, which still isn't bad.

        A lot of the visual issues that CE and H2 in MCC had that were inherited from the original PC ports got fixed.

        It's still not 100% identical to the original OG xbox releases, but they are much closer now, especially CE, and you basically need to be an autist to notice the few differences that are still left with a few exceptions

          And it is still missing little details that Gearbox fricked up that add to the experience like the first Elite behind the closed door on the Pillar of Autumn that gets gunned down by two marines. That door is now always open with no Elite and no marines.
          They should have used the OG Xbox version and ported that because I would take the campaign preserved as is over Halo 1 multiplayer any day and I enjoy Halo 1 multiplayer.

                They should have kept it through all difficulties. I enjoyed that introduction where you catch a glimpse when one breaks through the door of the cryo control room and then shortly after you come face to face with one.
                Oh well.

    Halo 1:A is pretty mediocre. Halo 2:A is what all remasters should strive to be.

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Halo 2A is still pretty horrific. They had to drag them kicking and screaming back to a "Bungie-lite" art style, then fricked up all the visual storytelling in the cutscenes, and continued to insist of fricking all the sfx and all the music. Its no surprise that these were the same people that made the original live action Sonic monstrosity

        Got to agree with this. H2A is certainly better than HCEA but it still has issues. Cutscenes are extremely overrated and look jarring. Also loss of in-engine rendering means you lose cool things like the weapon you were using appearing in the cutscene. Lighting changes are still pretty common, compare Metropolis in the original (red, burning sky) with anniversary (bright whites). Sound design is off. And the "343 artstyle" is still trying to force its way in, particularly in how it tries to ruin the looks of the Covenant.

        But since you can toggle it, I do still consider it better than most remakes.

          This.
          There's actually a video on Youtube where someone started putting the h2a assets over the original cutscene skeletons, and it was MUCH better.
          What gets me though, is Bungie already told us how to remaster Halo 2 in an old Halo 3 VIDOC,
          JUST PORT HALO 3 ASSETS INTO HALO 2
          Jfc why no one has made that mod for at minimum the cutscenes fricking baffles me

            Tbf I personally wouldn't care for it. Some stuff in H2 is better design-wise for example I prefer the H2 Elites and Arbiter's design, I think that H2 Cortana is better than H3 as well. Flood would be a hit or miss for me because in my head I'd try to melee them like in H3 but the H2 Flood is way tougher to kill with melee. Also it would ruin the more iconic guns, like the Energy Sword.

      I agree that H2A > HCEA but there are a couple things that I just don't like about H2A, mostly the gameplay stuff, it's just really ugly and the sounds are way less satisfying imo.

    I wouldn't say picrel is as bad as the STD that is 343, but they did make this weird decision to remove all the colour from the game.

      why? I know the side story isn’t that interesting but it gave you extra weapon caches, Driving a mongoose, a sniper rifle on my back while the rain patters for audio domination against the saxophone solos is fantastic.
      Barely any quality mods for ODST either

        there's not enough reason to care about the caches and getting locked out of the logs after doing the banshee level was dumb. There's literally no reason to lock down the majority of new mombasa after the rookie spends 5 seconds looking at medic foam.

        Audiologs dont really give you anything* and some of them actually require some annoying backtracking to do. Although, it does help that when you backtrack, you start seeing new shit happen in places you've been already.
        Otherwise, its just a story of some space african so who cares?

      I disagree honestly. It limits developers in too many ways. Just go back to the original release if the remaster turns out to be shit.

    They are amazing rereleases. The original games are 100% intact and the mid remastered graphics and audio are optional. As many issues as the remasters have, they never become straight up BAD. It's just mediocre at worst really.
