Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified Graphics Are Much Better Now

Gameplox: Back in August, Sony showed off the first footage from the PS Vita exclusive, Call of Duty: Black Ops – Declassified, and fans were disappointed for many reasons, namely the poor graphics. The PS Vita is capable of great visual quality that is exemplified by the gorgeous OLED screen, so the poor visuals surprised many. The good news is that the team at Nihilistic Software has greatly improved the visuals of the game since we last saw it. (Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, PS Vita)

People needs to understand developers are pressured to crunch quality gameplay graphics in order to make it to conventions. Sometimes they dont make it sometimes they dont.
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   878d ago
This is the only hope to improve Vita sales...
Cam977  +   878d ago
Ok, this looks great however; it was confirmed that they will add zombies upon SONY's approval.
cpayne93  +   878d ago
Need that to make this game a possible buy.
Skate-AK  +   878d ago
The game comes out in a month. They don't have the time to make zombies and not make it look tacked on. I would rather them make a zombies only version.
JetsFool3500  +   878d ago
iSay They Scrap Tha Whole Game And Just Make A Quality COD Zombies Game
cpayne93  +   878d ago
They should just make that hostiles mode co op instead of sp, that shouldn't be too hard.
TheDivine  +   878d ago
Shouldve just ported all Blops/WAW zombie maps and sold it as a full game. The sell Blops 2 zombie campaign as dlc for it (or include it).

I really thought they would just port the iphone zombie maps and call it a day. Lazy devs are lazy. Cheap cash in is a cheap cash in. 50 bucks for a shittier version of a game i have already with less maps and no zombies? YEA RIGHT! Il get it for 9.99 in two months.
NastyLeftHook0  +   877d ago
i agree
HammadTheBeast  +   878d ago
DLC probably.
--Onilink--  +   877d ago
i wouldnt go so far to say it looks great.... honestly it still looks like crap compared to most Vita games and even a couple of 3DS games. This is NOT how a Vita game is supposed to look like

I think its safe to say that this is just a rushed job, so i think we will be better off just waiting for the next release. It certainly doesnt help us customers, to buy shitty products just because, and then go around complaining about shitty practices by publishers, when we are the ones buying anything they release.

It might sound bad (also btw, i dont hate COD games) but this is a COD game that i want it to fail miserably, so they know next time they need to put out a quality product if they want big sales
mrbojingles  +   878d ago
Those new images, if they are from the improved build, don't look much better.
Rockefellow  +   878d ago
I don't know. They might not look GOOD, but there's a definite difference between the top two set in the same environment.
mrbojingles  +   878d ago
Yea, it isn't the difference I wanted but you're right there is a decent difference. Hopefully this game surprises everyone and proves everyone wrong.

I won't bet on it doing that but I'm open to being proven wrong for the sake of another great Vita game.
guitarded77  +   878d ago
Clearly a difference, but I have a feeling this game was rushed. I'd like to see a real cohesive campaign and at least 6v6 multiplayer at a $50 price tag. I think I'm gonna hold off on Declassifies until I see a finished product.
ritsuka666  +   878d ago
Looks the same for me...
Carni  +   878d ago
WOW i told you this game would be different! i think i will buy this fps!
brettyd  +   878d ago
Looks a lot better but still not 60fps which makes COD feel like COD.
Yangus  +   878d ago
Better its true.
Much better?No,and not 60fps.

Nihilistic CoD?c'mon..

Looks better ^^ I think this game is going to look a lot better on screen. IMO better than resistance^^ Give the guys some slack
CaptCalvin  +   878d ago
Why should we when they're charging us $50?
Skate-AK  +   878d ago
Activision controls priceing. Not the developer.
JetsFool3500  +   878d ago
Activision Obviously Knows Its Shit They Release No Gameplay To Shut Up Everybody Who's Bashing It
CaptCalvin  +   878d ago
That shouldn't matter to us consumers. In the end we're asked to pay $50 for this one way or another.
stage88  +   878d ago
Sounds pretty awesome but Killzone Vita will completely annihilate this.
rpd123  +   878d ago
Without a doubt. I hope we start seeing some more of Killzone soon.
kB0  +   878d ago
remember guys these images are ballooned on our laptop/monitor screens, it will look much better on the actual handheld. Same goes for the 3DS, I don't take screenshots too seriously...it always looks much better on the actual unit:)

Nfs the run 3Ds look like garbage off screens, although still looked bad on the 3Ds, it was MUCH better when actually playing it.

Also have they already confirmed not 30 fps?

If thats the case, why not do what they did on consoles? make resolution lower? We won't notice it too much on the hand held.

Oh and I actually enjoyed resistance, it wasn't worth 40$ but it wasn't nearly as bad as ppl made it look like...it was still better than Terminator salvation...after platinuming that game...all games look fun:) Now I just rate games on price not gameplay....it really opens a whole new world of games to play:D

Straightupbeastly  +   878d ago
Are people really interested in this game?
kB0  +   878d ago
I dont understand why ppl wouldn't be? It's the only portable variation of the game. It contains it's out story line. It's cheaper and frankly it might actually be decent.

Ppl honestly forget that games are optional, they take every release sooo personal, even more when it's a title that they have 0 interest in.

I never understood how ppl can't appreciate that this can actually be played on the go? Since most portable games don't even have a decent multiplayer, while this is getting 4v4 ppl still complain and want more.... and it's pretty much a 3rd party game...

I dunno ppl need to wait for a game to release before they start making assumptions.

iGuess iWas Spoiled By Uncharted because That Game Was Beautiful And This Looks Like A CellPhone Game Compared To Uncharted

yes, people who play games,cod fans and vita owners.
Moncole  +   878d ago
Wont change the fact its a bad game. I wonder if these devs test the game to make sure its fun befor they sell it.

The cod series or this specific game?

Empty and ambiguous comments need to stop:)
Moncole  +   878d ago
This game, the last few games these devs made were not exactly good. If these devs always made great games it than this game will most probably be great.

You can't base your results only on previous games, there are plenty of companies that needed a longer journey to find their sweet spot.

Naughty Dog was almost going to disappear from bankruptcy yet they came back and did the uncharted Series.

Also look at Polyphony, they made some Mario Kart knock off first then went on to create the Uncharted Series.

There are also reverse effects, which we saw with Black Box from EA:)

I think it's definitely a reason to be concerned but you can't make a judgement.

Actually Treyarch is an even better example, having some absolutely mind blowing games but also games that fell face first:)

It's too bad Sony shut down zipper, they would've been a great consultation team!
KillerPwned  +   878d ago
I think this may be the first COD I buy after MW2 I just gave up. But this on my Vita looks very promising.
Qrphe  +   878d ago
I'm still probably not going to get it, but sadly enough, it's probably going to be the first +1,000,000 Vita game seller.
J_Cob  +   878d ago
As much as I dislike CoD that's good for Vita sales. More Vita sales means more publishers making games for the system. Sounds like a win/win situation. A win for CoD fans and a win for Vita owners.
andibandit  +   878d ago
Im not even sure they've sold a 1,000,000 Vitas yet, they keep combining the sales figures with the PSP in order to obscure the true number.
josephayal  +   878d ago
The PlayStation Vita delivers amazing visuals on its 1080p 5-inch OLED touch screen
Pillsbury1  +   878d ago
Even ps1 games look better
Qrphe  +   878d ago
It's high DPI, but definitely not 1080p man (544 vertical pixels).
WiiLovePS360  +   878d ago

The Playstation Vita has a 960 x 544 resolution screen, not a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) screen. It is actually only slightly more than 1/4 of 1080p. It looks fantastic, but it is not even close to 1080p.

I'm not sure how you managed to get 3 people to agree with you or how no-one other than me had disagreed or thought to correct you.
metroid32  +   878d ago
Listen mug the vita isnt even 576p get a life at least capcom say the 3ds has progressive scan and in my opinion every game from capcom on 3ds like EX Troopers/MH3G/MH3U/Resident evil revelations/Resident evil mercenaries.

He exaggerated the capability's of the Vita´s screen but it´s screen has been proven to be much better than the 3DS´s especially the XL which has an even lower pixel density than the original.

But people don´t buy 3DS´s to game on high quality screens instead they buy them for the Nintendo franchises and the 3D screen which is something that the Vita doesn´t have.

BTW in case your wondering i prefer the Vita over the 3DS due to the type of games that it has. But i will admit that the 3DS is a pretty good handheld, it´s just that it´s library isn´t for me.

Sorry if i offended you in any way but judging by your comments your pretty sensitive to any criticisms against Nintendo.

Back on topic. I believe that this Call of Duty game will be a piece of crap since it´s being made by one of this gens worst developers aka Nihilistic software.

specialguest  +   877d ago
I know you can't be serious about the 1080p statement. For a 5inch screen, 960x544 res is outdated compared to today's mobile phone standards. Even the iphone4(960x640) beats the Vita ppi and resolution wise. However, if Sony gave the Vita a 720p res, prices would've been much higher.

They should consider this as one of the free games once PS+ for Vita goes live so that no one would complain. haha
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   878d ago
I'll give it a chance, but I won't buy it. I actually really liked the campaign from Resistance: Burning Skies. :)
TooTall19  +   877d ago
They better have better sound in this one though. I thought the gun sounds in Burning Skies were bad, especially the Bullseye.
solidt12  +   877d ago
I read an article that stated they have the same gun sounds as the consoles version last week.

CoD will be the same

All and all it is still a call of duty game on the go. I have been dreaming of something like this since the psp came out.

You know what? Me too. But ever since they started whoring out the franchise and feeding us the same rehashed uninspired crap, im done with the series. Long live cod 4.

no amount of pretty sparkles will make this cr*p look good
tubers  +   878d ago
I am very skeptical on that so called SS comparison. Not even the same "screen/shot".. the supposed ugly/old shot is located further ahead of the supposed improved shot.

W/e. Not that I want the game to flop but we shall see.

So wait they cut FPS, Multiplayer, and zombies and they want you to pay a full 60$ for it? Anyone who buys this is a sheep. Don't give these lazy devs your hard earned cash!
solidt12  +   877d ago
Its $50 and it still has multiplayer. Its just scaled down to 5v5 but that sounds about right since you are playing on a smaller screen.
JasminHill22   877d ago | Spam
mochachino  +   877d ago
Why not just make Black Ops 2 for it and allow PS3 and Vita gamers to play each other and continue playing on Vita.
ForRealz17  +   877d ago
That would be nice but I'd like the Vita version to have a unique SP game instead, BUT be able to play MP/Co-op against/with PS3 users(even if it's only a certain amount of maps).
Everlastingfate  +   877d ago
Control schemes are far too different to allow fair play between Vita and PS3. No push button R3 for running and no L1/R1.
