Christ, that still looks better than 95% of games of the last 2 years on low settings.
ritsuka666  +   611d 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.

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.

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
Pandamobile  +   611d 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.

@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.

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...
Pandamobile  +   611d 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.
landog  +   611d 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

ZoyosJD  +   611d 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.

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.
Autodidactdystopia  +   610d 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.
DoomeDx  +   610d 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..
The_Infected  +   611d ago

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.


tubers  +   611d 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.

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.

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

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.
ninjahunter  +   610d 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.
Norrison  +   610d 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.

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.

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.
Elem187  +   608d 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.

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.
Bathyj  +   611d 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.
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   611d ago
At least Crysis 3 will run on 64 bit wins7 without "tricks". I still can't play Crysis 1. And for the record, KZ 4 will not touch Crysis 3 Graphically that I'm sure of
Elem187  +   608d ago
The demo from KZ4 was a pretty big let down... Sony fangirls were pumping how the PS4 will leap frog PC's in graphics, and then the KZ4 demo is shown, and its like an impotent old man where nothing but dust puffs out.

Wow, I couldn't stop giggling how silly FPS's looked on the PS4.... I thought this console was supposed to blow our minds?
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   608d ago
I agree, KZ4 Looked good but not as good as n4g will have u believe. It's amazing that these Sony fanboys just think every game that was shown was so "amazing" . The only games I found to be worth my attention was Deep Down and Infamous. Sony fanboys need to accept that the ps4 can not touch a pc graphically. Like I said before KZ 4 looks good but not Crysis good

trancefreak  +   609d ago
What do you mean you thought everyone got over it last year?I just barly started using it.
So speak for yourself and this is not out of disrespect towards you or anyone. I prefer a disc based game and of course steam. So that is where I stand ATM.

I realize this is the future and when I evolve to Origin or, I feel more comfortable with it I might think otherwise. I also hear that origin scans your program data on windows and analysis what games you use and how you use that. Is that a fact I don't know; is it a myth I dunno. Until then I am yes uncomfortable with it.

-This not a hate re post I respect Panda it is just my feelings on this digital platform.

Panda, 99% of that could be done with dx9, we all know it.

The odd effect here and there is better with dx11, I've already been playing crisis 3 and yes it's very nice graphically. Gameplay is good as well.

3 looks better then 2, but more palette then anything else. and some fx been tightened up.

I do hope for console players that the sp runs faster then mp.

It needs to be 30fps + all the time.
deadfrag  +   611d ago
Its not!!The game runs bellow 30fps most of the time on consoles.Just like Far cry 3.The only thing better is that it does not have that horrible screen tearing far cry 3 haves.But the framerate is very low and dont average the 30fps from what i have played on the console.Technical facts!

I realized FC3 was running a a lower framerate when I first launched it, then I just forgot about it and had fun. I don't think I'm able to notice screen tearing either.

and looking at this video I really don't see a difference between low and very high. I like pretty games, but I really couldn't care less about how realistic the light is.

in one gaming generation a console gamer will spend around $250 - $600 for a console for the next 4-10 yrs.

in the same time a pc gamer will spend thousands upon thousands to have the "up to date" pc to be able to play current year games, if thats what your into then thats what your into.
CrustifiedDibbs  +   611d ago
How many time do idiots like you need to be told this? YOU DON'T NEED TO UPGRADE CONSTANTLY TO KEEP UP WITH GAMES!!! If console like graphics are ok, the pretty much any current pc hardware at or above the next consoles hardware, will run games for the whole next gen. A lot of people upgrade because they want to, not because they have to. If I don't want to upgrade, im sure my 680 can last through this gen.I know, I know, optimization is a magic wand that when waved makes mid range graphics cards equal to future high end pc tech lol. Optimization only goes so far, it's NOT MAGIC!

Guild Wars 2 (okay, i guess)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Holy Grail)

Crysis (REALLY? was ugly back then and it still looks shabby today.. even at 3x 27" at ultra... -.-)
Diablo III (uff... tough one)
Portal 2 (again, first one was "new, fresh"... no need for 2nd installment)
The Orange Box (HL2 FTW)
DmC: Devil May Cry (f-ck off! Devil May Cry 1 and THE END!)
World of Warcraft (....!?)
F1 2012 (.. with this one, you lost all credibility)

Just a FACT, a fact the never WILL DIE :

Best Games are made on and for Consoles... (im a PC player, its cheaper over the year), Halo, GT, Foza, LG just to name 4! that sell well beyond the 10Mio. mark each.. the only thing on PC that comes near is/was D3 and for some reason nobody liked it (didnt play it, so can´t tell..). ON PC its HARD as nails to sell sumtin for over 1 Mio.... Crysis 3 is garbage, another Blender that brings NOTIN new to the genre... except for visuals.

Maybe its time to get me a xbpsIV", heh
