Seriously where do you get these screen shots from? These are damn awful and compressed to death especially KZ:SF. Doesn't do either real justice.

KZ:SF - https://pbs.twimg.com/media... http://www.abload.de/img/po...

Halo 4 - http://s.pro-gmedia.com/vid... http://s.pro-gmedia.com/vid...

More KZ:SF --> http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

Halo 4 --> http://www.videogamer.com/x...

Killzone rapes Halo always in the graphics department. But never in the gameplay department. At best it has equaled Halo(Killzone 2) and that was only once. I find Halo 4 to be below the rest of the halo's too though(Yeah even with better graphics :/ ). And won't be surprised if Halo 5 is.

Edit - Killzone 2 was the only Killzone with that feeling. Killzone 3 and SF through it away. GG admitted to it. Because casual cod players didn't like that feeling. GG have really lost their minds with what they're up too now. Although it's not surprising. Instead of adding some new to killzone they added bullet time and seeing through walls. Slow clap for them.

I prefer Killzone's game play, but they're very different games. Tribes was Halo before Halo and it still plays better, IMO.
vishmarx  +   298d ago
halo is obvously inferior to SF...
but not KZ 2 lol no.
even though KZ 2 is prolly the best fps of the last gen
ForgottenProphecy  +   298d ago
I'd disagree. I just like the realistic, heavy feel of Killzone

@vishmarx
Do you mean superior, not inferior?

Halo Reach IMO was more impressive visually than killzone.
AndrewLB  +   298d ago
I'm pretty sure those killzone screenshots on his page are not the final retail graphics.
mikeslemonade  +   298d ago
Never seen Halo 4 but Halo Reach and Halo 3 were two of the worst graphics of last generation in comparison to highly rated games.

Some other bad looking last gen games were:
Crackdown
GTA4
Saints Row

A better comparison would be COD or BF of last generation to Kilzone.

>Killzone rapes Halo always in the graphics department but never in the gameplay department.

and yet Halo 4's MP is basically dead right now. heh
assdan  +   298d ago
I honestly don't understand halo's appeal. I've always hated it whenever I played it. The environments seem empty, the graphics are OK, and the gameplay is horendous. People literally never die in multiplayer.
PeaSFor  +   298d ago
Halo rely way WAY too much on aim assist for me, everything is sticky when they cross your reticle.
Mosiac77  +   298d ago
Killzone in no way rapes Halo. Killzone has had many opportunities to be a great FPS games and has missed that every time. Where they went wrong was when they called Killzone 1 the halo killer. You never want to compare your games with a master piece or it will hunt you forever. The designs and graphics of KZ are alway good even KZ1 for being a PS2 game, but we're they fall short are on gameplay, voice acting and multiplayer. And believe me I always have hopes for this franchise. I've played every KZ hoping that it will come close to How fun Halo is but you can't replace the one that started it all. It just like God of War, how many have try to copy them and always fail. Stay away from the masters path.
joab777  +   298d ago
This article is stupid. I played them both through 2x each and the multi extensively. Wasnt a big fan of either sp, but gameplay wise, I like halo sp story and SF multi.

Graphics wise...don't spend time looking at screenshots of different gens. Play them and u will realize that it isn't even a discussion. Killzone Shadowfall is one of the best looking next gen console games to date. Yeah, halo 4 looked good on the 360 but lets hav this discussion when halo 5 releases. Though one of the ppl resposible for halo 4's good looks now works for Naughty Dog!
Azmatik  +   298d ago
Im so sick of screen shot comparisons screen shit never count u dont see it in motion and when u do see it in motion thats when u see all the jaggies from the AA and the true graphics. I can take a screenshot of one of the oldest games and itl make it look good.

@Mosaic:
Learn WHO called KZ 1 a Halo killer, come back again ;)

I like KZ more than Halo, it's a more grounded sci-fi approach imho.
BUT one thing which KZ really lacks: Coop SP!
So much fun playing Halo with a buddy next to you!

OT: Yeah, let's compare games from two different gens! -.-"
If you want to show the improvements, compare it to KZ3...

Not any of its art desighn,it dose not..killzone has great graphics but like many comments about it,its been called a grey fest,ugly,and dull looking.K SF looks amazing and did a better job this time with its style especially in like the forest level but it still dose not have 343s talent in making the games scenery look amazing like halo 4s levels.It never game me any jaw droppin moments like halo 4 or other halos did.

why is this comparison even surfaced? Halo 4 is not even the best looking game last gen and it even looks inferior compared to KZ2/KZ3. and suddenly comparison to KZSF seems warranted? Halo has its great side, sure, but graphic is NOT one of it!

Halo 4 graphics are no where close. Killzone 3 graphics on the ps3 blows them away. As far as halos gameplay, that game was only good when there were no other fps out there to play. The only people keeping that franchise going are kids.
saber00005  +   297d ago
I've played all of Halo games, and I've played Killzone. I personally like Killzone better. It's not overly hyped compared to Halo. Just my opinion. I actually enjoyed KZ's campaign a lot. They brought a LOT of new gameplay stuff that I've never seen or played before. Perfect example is the falling maps. It was EPIC.

But hey, that's just my two cents. ;)

karamsoul, that's a pathetic excuse. To be consistent? You're comparing a previous generation of technology to the current generation. You don't do a comparison of an old vhs copy of star wars to a bluray version and dumb it down. This certainly will be the last of your posts that I read.

This isnt a proper comparison if one of the games is in a smaller resution than it should be. That's like taking the turbo out of a car in a street race because the other cars don't have one.

I just inspected the screenshots from the article and Hillzone's ones are 1080p resolution. Halo's are 720p. I like halo but, it doesn't beat Killzone: SF in graphics. Not sure about other aspects of the game but i'll find out when i get my PS4. (When i manage to get one :/) Stop trolling and go back to 9gag.

No comparison. Contra is way more fun than any KZ
SilentNegotiator  +   298d ago
The Halo series hasn't been exceptional graphics wise since TWO generations ago. What a dumb comparison.

A better comparison would have been KZ3 and KZ:SF.
showtimefolks  +   297d ago
Killzone is the only FPS where i can play online and do well, COD just sucks with campers and BF series has a huge learning curve

Never tried halo so can't give my honest opinion. KZ2 and Resistance 2-8 player co-op are the best FPS online games i have played last gen

i am mostly into single player games
AyeUMadBro  +   297d ago
You are all clearly missing the point here. A game looking better is not about how each texture pops in the character or environments. As a fan of both franchises. All of you don't realize that developers have to fit as much as they can in a game with the hardware they have. So comparing KZSF and H4 are terrible but comparing it to KZ2&3 and H4 are more appropriate.

I personally think Halo looks more impressive, even though Killzone has better texture and detail, any game could look better if all you have to do is fit so much detail into basically a corridor shooter. Halo has much more open environments in comparison, way more enemies on screen, vehicles that are air and ground, 4 player co-op, etc. All of these factors take away from a texture or two that could go into the game, but these factors make a game more impressive to me visually because it has to accomplish all of these tasks while at the same time trying to look good and add as much detail doing it. So of course Killzone is going to look better in terms of detail, it doesn't have to perform any of the tasks I mentioned above about Halo. I'm pretty sure Killzone would lag pretty badly if it had as much going on on-screen as Halo did while trying to maintain the visuals it has. Killzone just lacks to much in variety just to look good. I would much rather drive a vehicle, play co-op, and have forge mode rather than some good looking character models. Anyone would agree that is a better experience.

I like Killzone and have almost every trophy but I don't love it as much as Halo. The Halo universe is so big and there is so much to do in Halo compared to Killzone. That's what makes Halo a much more overall and impressive experience.

ProjectSeoul  +   298d ago
Apparently they had one of the best programmers in the business, so that helped a lot with the graphics. Sad news is that she left 343i, the good news is that she went to Naughty Dog. But don't expect the next halo game to look too amazing in terms of graphics, but that doesnt stop me from getting excited about the next Halo

You do realize she would of complete the new engine for Halo 5 since she would of been working on it for at least a year now not to mention 1 employee out of the 343 at 343i which consist of Naughty Dog employees as well is hardly a dent on Halo 5.

ELCUCO  +   298d ago
No dispute on the engine work, but hardly a dent is severly under appreciating her work. You must not understand the significance of her work at 343. All that is praised of Halo 4 graphics was a direct reflection of what she has accomplished.

On lighting alone, MS filed a software patent based on the techniques that she was applying to Halo 4.

BillytheBarbarian  +   298d ago
People will be disappointed with nextgen if all they care about is graphics. It's not the leap forward people think it should be.

Racing games on Dreamcast still look good compared to the latest forza. They can do nice things with particle effects and physics now and there is more environment interaction. That will continue. But a car is a car.

This guy is a complete joke. First the completely unscientific comparison between TLOU and DR3 (he's illogical reasoning being that both games have 'zombies'), now this.

Why not compare killzone:SF to a last gen game with a similar scope and art direction... I dunno... something like KILLZONE 3 for Christs sake!!!

How can you get an accurate representation of the generation shift when you keep compairing totally unrelated titles? Again, this guy is a joke.

Next, let's compare Resogun to Mass Effect 3. Why not? They both have space ships!

How do you compare the graphics of an open world game to that of a more linear based one ? logically TLOU would have better visuals.
mhunterjr  +   298d ago
Not to mention the open world game has several hundreds of procedurally generated enemies onscreen at once.... Nope, the fact that both games have zombie-like enemies makes those points invalid...
ziggurcat  +   297d ago
DR3 and TLoU are both 3rd person survival games. KZ and halo are both 1st person shooters... How are they not related?

And they have compared KZ: SF to KZ3:

http://n4g.com/news/1400347...
mhunterjr  +   297d ago
Man, anyone who knows ANYTHING about game design would understand the technical reasons why these are invalid comparisons. The genre of the game is not what determines it's potential graphical output. It's the scope.

Why would you compare a linear corridor shooter to an open world game? The features that tax the system are going to differ vastly. Why would you compare character models between a game that has <10 onscreen characters to one that has to deal with >400? Obviously, the one with fewer will have more detailed models. Why compare the textures between a game that loads new ones for every scene, and a game that has to stream them all in on the fly? There are so many reasons why the comparison makes no sense.

The same goes for Halo and Killzone. The scopes of the games are totally different. Killzone has one of the tightest fields-of-view ever in a FPS. That allows for greater detail, as their are less items onscreen at once. It also historically had tighter encounters with fewer enemies at once. Halo's engine had to account for a much wider FOV, as the game is played from the 3rd person perspective much of the time, and with vehicles, characters are moving at much higher rate of speed. There are also many more enemies on screen at once. From a technical standpoint these games are doing completely different things with the hardware.

It just makes so much more sense to compare games that are more technically related of your trying to compare next gen to current gen.

PS: that comparison you posted isn't from SpawnFirst.

Dependes,halo has larger scenarios, more AI on screen, better AI, more vehicles on the screen, and more freedom, so halo game engine is higher, killzone is more linear is normal in visual be better, but technically halo exceeds
Irishguy95  +   298d ago
Technically sure Halo exceeds. But Killzone looks better -> It has better graphics. Yes Halo has vehicles and a physics engine and has colors, but Killzone was always prettier. And sure that's likely only because Halo had more to render than pretty pictures but there you go.

Game play is subjective! Halo's prime was Halo 2, everything thing after that was just crap! Halo 3 wasn't good, ODST was weak, Reach while an improvement over ODST and 3 still was nothing special, and Halo 4 was pretty but lacking!

Granted KZ2 was also the best in the KZ franchise, as 3 was more COD like, to me, the closest to KZ to in terms of gameplay abd fun factor, Mercenaries on Vita comes the closest, I enjoyed Shadow Fall, but it's missing something from the formula, even with some worthy addition franchise innovations. Multiplayer is still fun. And is over all a solid game, but KZ2 still reigns supreme and Mercenaries is the closest to the KZ2 DNA than the games in the franchise that came after KZ2.
Cherchez La Ghost  +   298d ago
Hold up there buddy. I got to beg to differ on your statement. Play on the hardest level on Halo 4. The Covenant on Halo 4 was fast and lethal The Prometheans were just just as deadly. And I thought CoD was hard.

halo does a great job compared to killzone, being a last gen game i don't see i huge difference. if killzone was 60fps then it would be certainly a huge difference.. but its not.

besides halo is a million times better game than killzone, it defined fps games & the original xbox.

"i don't see i huge difference"

If you weren't a fanboy you would. Even Killzone 2 (which released 3 years prior to Halo 4) was a noticeably better looking game. KZ: Shadow Fall's textures (environmental, character models and weapon renders) and lighting/particle effects alone crush what Halo 4 has on the table, and I dare you to prove otherwise.

Find me any comparative in-game screenshot with even half the detail of these:
