    I've just bought this and I'm wondering if I've got a duff copy?

    All of the cut scenes are very jerky to the point that the image skips quite a bit!?!?

    Has anyone else got this and if so is it the same?

    Surely this can't be the quality they managed to churn out!!

    I dont have the same problem with the PS2 version.

    As I would therefore expect the XBOX version to be more polished from a graphics perspective, I would assume it might be a duff copy.

    Good game, by the way!

    When this first came out in the states there were a load of posts on xbox newsgroups about the jerkiness of the cut scenes. The game's real-time graphics behave ok though don't they?

    Were did you buy it?.

    If it was from Game take it back and get a new one, or just take it back anyway and try a different copy. You never know.

    Sounds like this is a general problem.

    The in game graphics are fine so it looks like I'll just have to live witht he jerks!

    It's a bit annoying though! Maybe I've just developed higher expectations for since I got my XBOX

    I bought the game from Blockbusters and I can't really be arsed to take it back and have to try and explain the fault to the staff.

    Cheers for the replies!

    PS Am I the obly person who was dissapointed with the jerkyness of the cut scenes in Halo? Don't get me wrong the game itself if excellent but I thought they would have managed to get the cut scenes a bit smoother what with all the 'Power' the XBOX is supposed to have.

    Could this be a problem with converting the videos from NTSC/60fps to PAL/50fps? Anyone have the US versions of the game that can confirm this?

    Yes, I too found the cut scenes in Halo a bit of a shock as that was the first game I got, and those were the first scenes I saw on the box. The in game graphics have no problems. My conclusions were that I had a slightly duff copy that wasn't being read properly or that they had pushed the graphics just a little too far in these scenes.

    This would be exusable on a PC game as you could put it down to your VGA card not being powerful enough but they knew exactly the spec of the Xbox.

    Anyway, it's a minor detraction from a monster of a game. I got some mates coming over tonight and they all have PSX's on mono TV's. I'm going to show them Halo on my WS Sony with full 5.1 DD sound. I think they might like it.

    That's always a possibility. Mind you, I did spend all last weekend at my mates place in a drunken stupor so I couldn't complain too much.

    Well the thing was made over here so I'd have expected thecutscenes to be fine for 50Hz ( its not so difficult to transcode up to 60Hz with decent results its going the other way thats a real problem).

    I'll see what I can find out.
