Christ, that still looks better than 95% of games of the last 2 years on low settings.

ritsuka6661758d ago (Edited 1758d ago )

Still Crysis 3 better than all exclusives PS3 games in low specs =^^=

Anyway, i can't wait for play this game.. looks better than Crysis 2 for sure.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1758d ago

Awe you feel you have to bring up PS3 just to start a flame war? Who care how good it looks. At least ND and GG make games where the AI is actually very good along with great graphics. Crytek is so mediocre. KZ2 AI was better than any Crysis game to date. I bet anything KZ4 will blow Crysis 3 out of the water. Just remember graphics don't equal AI, story, and overall experience.

Letros1758d ago (Edited 1758d ago )

lol KZ2 that game was a pile of mediocrity

classic2001758d ago

Too bad it its not as good as any PS3 game or even the original crysis. This game is a fun tech demo but its still a good game but nothing special.

Most PC gamers already dislike cryteck for crysis 2

Pandamobile1758d ago


You haven't played the game, so don't be so quick do dismiss it as a tech demo. Every Crysis game so far has been stellar (yes, even though Crysis 2 was a bit of a departure from the first it was still, overall a very solid game). The third installment is shaping up quite well too, with more emphasis on what made Crysis 1 awesome (large, open-ended levels and dynamic gameplay).

Stop talking out of your ass.

cpayne931758d ago

@Letros Killzone 2 was one of the best shooters this gen. Considering the critical and consumer reception, I would say there aren't many people who agree with you.

deadfrag1758d ago (Edited 1758d ago )

Another great graphic tech demo,but a piece of crap of a game in the gameplay department!

Minimum requirements are the 400 or equivalent series which wasn't even available till 2010 and yet console hardware from 2005 can run it just fine.

Five years of advancement in PC tech only to be on par with consoles. Not exactly efficient.

Maybe you should consider the implications of how that effects a standardized hardware format that could be unveiled any time now...

Pandamobile1758d ago

The PC version uses DX11, and DX11 cards have been around for 4 years, so the console versions are below PC low settings and are locked at 720p and 30 FPS. Running the game at 1080p already requires 2x more computation power than what consoles are capable of. I'm really not sure what exactly you're trying prove here besides your very limited knowledge of computer hardware.

landog1757d ago (Edited 1757d ago )


if you consider sub hd, covered in jaggies, screen tearing, low res textures and awful performance to be as you put it

"console hardware from 2005 can run it just fine"

i would not call that fine, i'd call that chocking on tech it cannot handle like nearly all console games from the last 5 years, resolutions are dipping lower and lower, anti aliasaing is almost never used, or its some awful blur filter after effect, performance is tanking

the truth is, every major multiplat game on console is just the pc version at the LOWEST possible settings, with draw distance reduced, no anti aliasing, no dynamic shadows, no ssao, nothing

Sarcasm1758d ago

Definitely more polished looking than the Beta.

ZoyosJD1758d ago

Your not proving your point well, as DX 10 and 11 features have been implemented on the DX9 cards on consoles. Lighting, motion blur, depth of feild, wet and refective serfaces, tesselation. Any reasonable 2005 pc wouldn't even run crysis 2 720p30fps even in DX9 mode, yet consoles can handle crysis 3 with DX 11 features. The only noticable difference you'll see is FPS and resolution and only if you have a GTX460 or higher card. And 2x the power is 18 months, not 5 years of technological development. Where does 3.5 years of progess go? Face the facts, this game would be a 5 min strees test for a bottom of the barrel 2009 DX 11 GPU in 1080p at anything above low.

I'm not saying that the extra cash for a new card and 5 year wait is not worth it for some like yourself, but the only thing your proving is your resolve to ignore how extensive console coding optimization plays a role in their longevity and reasonable pricing per performance.

DomceM1758d ago

Zoyos leave the tech talk to the big boys. ok?

So much misinformation in that post and flawed thinking that its pointless to even get into it.

Autodidactdystopia1757d ago

you know that you can tesselate using a cell phone processor right?

the difference is all of those features you just mentioned are Hardware accelerated, meaning that it was designed to run those effects and 100s of times faster using compute shader hardware tesselators, more rop's, for addressing higher resolutions, and upwards of 1000 cuda/stream cores to do it with.

not to mention the raw clock speed advantage.

DoomeDx1757d ago

I dont get this guy.
Hes moving and running around in all direction to compare graphics..

Why not stand still, and transit to the other settings..

Looks like KZ2 was rated better to me overall.

You PC guys kill me with your hardons for graphics. That's all you guys care about isn't it? There is a lot more to a game than being pretty. If the graphics are good hell yea but there's other very important aspects to games.

tubers1758d ago (Edited 1758d ago )

Crysis has more gameplay elements than KZ (KZM breaks free from 2 and 3).

-Wider areas that are also accessible
-More variety of ways going to point A to B to progress through the game (stealth/guns-a-blaze/both)
-Much more environmental interactivity
-minor RPG elements (suit upgrades)

KZ is much more of a rat maze (smaller areas/corridor heavy/occlusion heavy) with horse blinders (low FOV) in comparison to all Crysis games.

Bathyj1758d ago

I like them both, for different reasons.

Does everything have to be a big pissing contest around here.

tubers1758d ago


He trolled with an ignorant blanket statement but got "trolled" harder with facts in terms of gameplay diversity..

..NOT just pretty scenery with little substance as he implied with Crysis series.


What KZ has brought is its unique and gorgeous art style and I also dig that.

Qrphe1758d ago (Edited 1758d ago )

Yes, let's pile up all PC players into this group that says that all they care about are graphics.
Everybody has played and has been playing Minecraft, TF2, and CS because of their excellent graphics.

Watch when the PS4 visuals are shown, PS4 fanboys will be all into "huurrr PS4 has better graphics than PC xDDD" then when the PS4 is noticeably outdated PS4 fanboys will jump into the "huuuurr who cares about graphics when you have games xDDD" bandwagon

Bathyj1758d ago

I like graphics, I just dont feel the need to be a jerk about it.

DomceM1758d ago

we only care about graphics? maybe you havent been on n4g for the past ten years.

Every day articles:

-Lens of Truth: Title X Better on PS3 or 360? (goes on to examine identical screenshots from 2 systems).
-X DEVS promise to finally max out Z CONSOLE!

for gamers who supposedly dont care about graphics, you guys seem like bigger graphics whore than pc gamers. We dont sit and analyze every grain to compare how it looks vs another console. We just buy the best hardware we can and play.

PS3 is pretty awesome, got one myself, just dont say stupid stuff like that. B/c we both know that all gamers care about graphics.

ninjahunter1757d ago

What... Your the one that brought up graphics, this is a comparison between settings to determine if its worth buying on lower end machines. Its actually really common on PC gaming forums and websites.

I hate having to keep saying this, but PC gaming isnt about graphics, its about building a PC based around your budget and knowledge, and tweaking it into your own machine and pushing it to the limits. Its almost like raising a kid. Ask any hard core PC gamer what his specs are, hele be able to tell you down to the ram frequency, he knows this, because he cares.

Norrison1757d ago (Edited 1757d ago )

Killzone is a corridor shooter with muddy textures and graphics, the gameplay is less than stellar. When the first crysis was released it brought a lot of new things into the table other than stellar graphics.
Crysis 1 had enviromental interactivity, tons of ways of tackling a situation, free roam sandbox, real time gun customization, AWESOME physics, etc. What did killzone do? Be a call of duty with a better story and "fancy" graphics.

You're pretty much basing on crysis 2, a game that had potential, but consoles dumbed it down like every other multiplat.

Elem1871755d ago

You PS3/PS4 guys kill me with you hardon for graphics when you bash a Nintendo console.... see how that works?

PC gaming blows any console out of the water for eye candy. And what is the biggest reason console fangirls buy playstation and xbox? From what I see on the net its all about graphics, and you take every opportunity to take snipes at Nintendo for its lack of graphics.

IF graphics matter, which console fangirls seem to always say it does, then you shouldn't even own a console. Nothing can touch the PC... even the new PS4, will be pretty obsolete by Christmas, and PC gaming will take off like a rocket starting in late 2014/2015 when DX12 is being released.

@letros crisis is the definition of mediocrity.

Graphics is all it has going for it.
Ps3's worst game is better than all 3 crisis games combined.

Pc nerds and their graphics lol

ExCest1758d ago

Woah, way to bring personal insults to the equation you stupid idiot.

Eldyraen1758d ago

Surely someone with that name and icon wouldn't be a bit biased...

edgeofsins1758d ago

The first Crysis has very fun gameplay. It isn't all about the graphics. Customize your gun in real time, awesome physics, grab people and use super strength to throw them far, etcetera. The 2nd wasn't terrible but it didn't feel that fun to me.

Elem1871755d ago

If gameplay matters, then why do you play a ps3 and not a Nintendo?

Nintendo is by far the most creative and innovative company when it comes to gameplay.... PC has the eye candy and Nintendo has the gameplay.

What is the reason people buy Playstations and XBox's?? console fangirls say its because the graphics are better.... Not from my vantage point.

Looks like DX11 has officially arrived.

Dat low setting.

Thefreeman0121758d ago

I don't know what half of those effects mean but it's a shame that crysis isn't an open world game like Gary cry other wise I'd be sold.

Bathyj1758d ago

You shouldnt let that deter you.

Farcry 3 is a great game but it doesnt mean all games should be open world. You can run around for 10 minutes before you bump into 4 guys, kill them in 30 seconds then go on another hike to find more.

Not knocking the game, I loved it, just saying there is room for 2 schools of thought.
