What are you talking about? The cut scenes were pre rendered...WITH THE IN GAME ENGINE.... Not with Pixar computer generated Disney movie graphics like you're all referring to in Final Fantasy.
...do people really not know this?
...The game DOES have pre-rendered CGI cutscenes for the opening and ending of the campaign, the opening of multiplayer, and all of the cutscenes for Spartan Ops.
Okay, you're right. I was thinking only of the cut-scenes that pop up while you're playing, which are in-engine. The beginning one with Halsey was fine, and the ending cgi was ok too. Could have been done with the in-engine gfx, and the spartan-ops cut-scenes are very close to in-game. (More so than the two for campaign).
Anyways, sorry, I thought people were saying the entire game was pre rendered cgi. I'm too drunk to be on here right now.
