Posted By: Bob-B-QDate: 5/14/11 11:21 a.m.

First, the app info. This is the earlier dated Preview.

On launching the Preview, we get a special message from the sponsors...

...And the familiar title screen + rockin' theme tune.

The main menu looks as expected...

...But certain features are lacking. Saving films is enabled, however.

The credits screen.

Preferences. Some of the high-quality graphics options appear to be disabled in the Preview.

Playing with Powerbook key config for added nostalgia power.

Waterloo Waterpark doesn't differ much from the final version.

Powerups?

Durandal's greeting terminal.

Those jagged gaps on the terminal map are exactly what I see in-game. Wasn't this why Bungie abandoned the M1-style realtime-generated maps in terminals?

The 'third switch' for the secret area. We'll come back to it later.
http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/7119/m2p017.jpg

Punchin' drones and breakin' bones.
http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/6476/m2p018.jpg

Old style Fighters.
http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/9908/m2p019.jpg

Old style ammo boxes.
http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/3388/m2p020.jpg

The BOBs talk, but the Fighters don't vocalize at all.
http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/741/m2p021.jpg

The first chip and uplink.
http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/6452/m2p022.jpg

The assault rifle room...
http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/7158/m2p023.jpg

...And the shadow room.
http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/6499/m2p024.jpg

The second chip and uplink.
http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/7461/m2p025.jpg

The Pfhor terminal. Unlike Durandal's terminals on this level, it has an image.
http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/3591/m2p026.jpg

Back to that secret area. Swimming doesn't seem to work the way it does in the final game.
http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/6372/m2p027.jpg
http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/7484/m2p028.jpg

http://img807.imageshack.us/img807/6711/m2p031.jpg
http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/9591/m2p032.jpg

The map of the map. How many differences can you spot?
http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/5219/m2p033.jpg

Durandal's second terminal.
http://img862.imageshack.us/img862/9699/m2p034.jpg

The exit screen.
