This Is What Metro: Last Light Could Look Like In CRYENGINE

DSOGaming writes: "Metro: Last Light is considered one of the best looking games of 2013 on the PC. CRYENGINE is also considered one of the best game engines of 2013. So what happens when you combine these two? Well, time to find out." (Cryengine, Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I personally think the metro last light engine handles shiny surfaces better than cryengine.

not much else though.

I don't like it. I think the Devs did an unbelievable job on Last Light, and I don't think Cryengine 3 would have made this look better: http://archive.sunet.se/pub...

It's pretty clear almost everything looks better with cryengine... if they could just nail the gameplay. So close yet so far away...

This isn't made by Crytek, and the gameplay has nothing to do with the engine.

Great engine waiting for a great developer.

Am i the only one that loves crysis gameplay? Multiplayer is a little weak but single player is pretty amazing with a more open sandbox environment and multilayered approach to combat with the nano-suit n all.
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   268d ago
I actually really like crysis 2 :p
spicelicka  +   268d ago
Same, i lovedd crysis 2. i have just started crysis 3 so I can't give my judgment on that yet, but let's see how it goes.

It's all good but the makers of Metro made the game on a super tight budget while still achieving a good looking game therefore made a good profit on sales... a lesson Square Enix could learn from.

"while still achieving a good looking game" understatement of the century easily the best looking game out there on ultra settings

I currently don't have the privilege on running it on Ultra but I'll take your word for it :)

Thank you! Finally someone agrees. Last Light, on max, is just untouched. Crysis 3 and BF4 have better character models, yes, but tessellation (which NO game tops Last Light on), environments, lighting and the outdoor atmosphere are all better looking in Metro.
Angerfist  +   268d ago
true. this has probably the best true-to-life graphics on console fps, it looks extremely polished. i play it again after finishing it when it came out and it still looks sick, DLCs are half good, half bad though.
SlapHappyJesus  +   268d ago
I feel the same. Nothing quite touches this game maxxed out.
I remember fighting with what seemed like the entirety of N4G that this game on Ultra looked better than Shadowfall.
Hell, there's a good number of titles that look better that Shadowfall.

I'd like to see someone do, "here's what gameplay would be like with Cryengine but without Crytek". I'm sure I'd favor those results
IaMs12  +   268d ago
Is it just me or do i think Metro still looks better? Would be nice to get a solid gameplay mechanics with this engine though.
Pandamobile  +   268d ago
Team of dozens of artists crafting a game for 2+ years vs. one guy doing this in his spare time.
CGI-Quality  +   268d ago
Not just you. Last Light DOES look better.
MidnytRain  +   268d ago
A bunch of people here said the CryEngine looked bad when some guy tried to recreate TLOU. I think it's a pretty engine.
Pandamobile  +   268d ago
It's probably the best looking engine currently available. Some people on N4G just get touchy when they see recreations of PS3 exclusives with better looking graphics.
Eyeco  +   268d ago
It's an amazing engine for sure, but I'm curious as to why very few developers are adopting it in the same way UE, and ID tech were widely used.
Pandamobile  +   268d ago
Hardly anyone uses idTech anymore outside of Zenimax studios.

CryEngine is an expensive alternative to UE3 and Unity.
hiredhelp  +   268d ago
@Eyeco
One main reasons Price
Unreal cheaper versatile
MidnytRain  +   268d ago
CryEngine 3 apparently costs 1.2 million dollars to license or something.

Whoever makes these textures are very skilled
Mr Tretton  +   268d ago
Looks great except for things that were strange in Crysis 3 as well, subtle rainbow colored trimming on a lot of objects (I assume that has to do with 3D), and strong aliasing in places.

It's called chromatic aberration ( or chromatic abomination as i like to call it ) I guess it's a post prossesing effect its even in SweetFX now it looks so wierd when overdone like in Payday 2 , idk if theres an option to turn it off in SDK , but I fear it's slowly becoming new lens flare , but people don't seem to hate on it with such passion
