Game: MCC Halo 3
Platform: Xbox One X on 65'' 4K OLED TV w/ LG soundbar and surround sound
Issue / Feedback: I'm kind of hesitant to make an issue of this, so I guess it would be more of feedback. But going from COMBAT EVOLVED and HALO 2 on my platform, I noticed how lackluster HALO 3 looks and sounds. COMBAT EVOLVED and HALO 2 look absolutely amazing in their anniversary editions, but HALO 3 kind of feels... dated? I understand it came out in 2007, with CE ANNIVERSARY releasing in 2011, but the graphics overall look quite blurry, especially for a game that is supposed to be enhanced for Xbox One X. The sound design is also lacking. In the previous games, especially in COMBAT EVOLVED, I could feel each shot from the guns with intensity. Even having to turn down my soundbar from how loud it was.
But with HALO 3, the sounds from the guns are almost mute with the music blaring over it. I think this was an issue with the original HALO 3 when it came out, but would there be any way to give it a slight polish and re-design with its graphics and sounds? I know there are several issues to take care of that are obviously much more important, but it would be really nice to play through HALO 3 and have the same experience I've been having with COMBAT EVOLVED and HALO 2. If not, it's okay. Just thought I would offer my experience playing HALO 3 so far.
Edit: I just watched a video on YouTube from DigitalFoundry about HALO 3 for Xbox One X. The commentator said that as of that video (November 2017) while HALO 3 was Xbox One X enhanced (with the gameplay looking really good in the video he showed), it's not Xbox One X enhanced for the MCC Collection yet. So maybe this is why it doesn't quite have that punch?
