Halo Movies

This is a legacy section.

The information included on these pages has not been updated since Halo 2 came out in 2004. It is here because it's an easy way to find movies from the early days of Halo moviemaking - but it's no longer updated. The movies approved by our Movie Peer-Reviewed Rating System can be found in our Miscellaneous section: 2005 vids are on this page, and 2006 vids are on this page. All movie-related newsposts can be found in our news database with this link.

Here you'll find all the Halo video footage released since Halo was announced, with the exception of the footage created to illustrate a gameplay trick. (For that, head over to the Gameplay Tricks section.) We've endeavored to ensure that film links are up-to-date, but we may have missed some bad links, or neglected a movie (or a movie mirror) - feel free to let us know if you find errors. More advanced sorting features will come, in time - but we decided you'd probably be okay with the default stuff for the time being, rather than having NO list at all...

permalink Gameplay Footage from E3, IGN Xbox (direct) 17-May-01 7.7 MB qt
55 seconds of Halo gameplay, ostensibly recorded as a direct feed (not filmed off a monitor). Downsides: It's very dark, making it hard to appreciate the quality of the video, only the first 18 seconds are new (the rest is spliced in from the Microsoft promo material), and even though it's 'direct-feed', you can hear player voices on the soundtrack of the new material.
