Ryse: Son of Rome is the best looking game so far this generation

"As you can tell from our review for Ryse: Son of Rome, we very much enjoyed it. However, I thought I would make another article just to restate how great the game itself looks. From my experience so far with next generation games, Ryse: Son of Rome stands above the rest graphically. Due to the controversy of the game being 900p rather than the previously announced 1080o, many might be surprised to learn that the game looks as good as it does." - JPS (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

i'll add KZ SF and BF4

those 3 games look amazing but i still don't consider them full fledged nextgen games

a nextgen game is a game that cannot be done almost intact on past systems, games like crysis 3, BF4, Metro, far cry 3, bioshock infinite aren't full fledged nextgen games because they were done intact on currentgen systems, the core is intact, just missing sheen

the first true nextgen game will be Watch Dogs and then the DIVISION, also the Order, the crew and Quantum break those games cannot be done intact on currentgen systems

u cannot put that geometry, AI, fidelity, calculations etc.. on xbox 360/ps3 unless you do a different version with an older engine and have the same name

games like ghost recon recon Advanced war fighter on original xbox and ps2, different version, same name, it's fully developed with nextgen in mind

that is the definition of NextGen in my book

KZ4 is true next gen, and I feel that games that span across platform generations such as BF4 are close to next gen, but are not many cause there on two different platforms. Either way the games on the horizon scream NextGen, Watchdogs, InfamousSS, TheDivision, Destiny....

Usually the first next gen games barely look better than the most recent last gen. PS3 games right now look amazing. I remember Riddick on original Xbox, that looked next gen back then. There are many cycles in games, right now we are on the final cycle on current gen, while the first cycle has just started on next gen. Btw, when can we stop calling it next gen?

I beat killzone 1,2 and 3. This game makes those games look bad and killzone 2 and 3 look incredible. I think its whaf you are comparing. What assets a dev is using for that title. I am sure if gg wanted to pull off more assets they could have went with a slightly lower res but with shooting game clarity is best to see enemies. Ryse is a awesome.looking game and i give its due.diligence.

Kind of a sad day if people havent learnt that promotional "in-game screenshots" are usually done on PC (as all games are made on PC), and almost never reflect the graphics of the final product.

The resolution of the final game will be lower, less textures etc.

Hell look at GTA 5. It looked amazing in shots. And was shocking in-game in comparison.

how is Ryse the best looking game so far? . sure it looks cool, but there is no skill here whatsoever, no talent < fact

Ryse looks like something anybody could have made. No imagination, no brain work required just copy and paste realistic look that already existed in real life waiting around for somebody with copy and paste skills to imitate . .

WindWaker HD 1080p for wiiU on the other hand looks like real talent requiring more skills more art direction more brain work to imagine a look like that .

Ryse copy and PASTE look easy peezy < fact

Beastforlifenoob  +   586d ago
So if it requires no skill or talent hop on your PC and make a game as good as Ryse because MSOFT probably made bundles of cash from Ryse.

Also I find it funny how you say its too realistic and then point to winwaker HD and says it requires more talent and artistic direction. I don't exactly understand how making something look extremely realistic is "no skill". Infact I think crytek put massive effort into the graphics far,far more than the Windwaker HD thats why the gameplay deteriorated slightly.

But you cant say something realistic is easier to produce than something unrealistic because also when texturing unrealistic things there are very few details such as dirt, grit, grease stains, blood,etc,etc, in realistic graphics all of these have to be done as well as maticioulous lighting effects, shaders and a variety of post processing effects.
deafdani  +   586d ago
Wow, your fanboyism knows no limits, does it? Yes, Wind Waker HD is a fantastic looking game, but that's based on art direction alone, not technical achievements... which is exactly the point of the article.

ssj27  +   587d ago
Okay what's wrong with the people in here?

Don't hate Killzone shadow fall just because.

KILLZONE SHADOW FALL is indeed the best FPS for next gen so far.

Runs 1080p at 60fps and looks way way better than BF4 and don't tell me bf4 does more and act like Killzone Shadow fall is a pingpong game.

And who are some of you to say Killzone Shadow Fall has bad AI? Lol like saying kim Kardashian is not hot, stop been a fool, Killzone has a amazing harsh top of the line AI when you play it on the hardest mode.

KILLZONE SHADOW FALL may not have the best facials on all their characters but the rest is top of the line.

It may not have a great story telling but it has a diverse good campaign, something new and different and I appreciate it, it could have been better ? yes but they got no time.

And the multiplayer is in a ehole nee level only you understand what's going on.. most players are very good and is challenging team play. No auto aim bs like ever other fps bf4 or cod are auto aim noob friendly, it's disgusting.

Plus we all know other games will look better, this is just the start I mean look at the division or second son made killzone look just ok because those two games look amazing and the are full open worlds.

The future is bright no need to hate on Killzone just because you can't play it or it did not please you, there is no game that will please everyone.

For example GTA sold like what in the ps3 ? 10millios? There are over 80million ps3 users meaning therr are 70millions who do not care or like gta.. because it can't please everyone even if is a good game for 10million it will not mean is a good game for everyone.

I have to agree with you there, cast back to xbox360....where Perfect dark: Zero was a launch title. It looked amazing. By the end of the 360 lifecycle it looked poop. There will be amazing looking games in next couple of years on both gens but then PS4 will edge it on graphical power
micbrc  +   586d ago
I would debate Killzone i returned BF4 due to a bug causing me to loose my save progress in the campaign twice and swapped it for Killzone shadowfall and after spending time with bf4 and switching to killzone it looks no where near as good while its decent borderline nice playing at 30fps feels slower and the graphics just dont pop out and look anywhere near as good as bf4 as for ryse no idea havnt played it.

I guess people think that because the art style is more cartoony, it doesn't look "next gen". But the graphics are actually pretty damn impressive on Knack. Granted, I hadn't played the game myself but I've certainly seen videos at 1080p and I'm still impressed. Sure, it's not a technical/realistic looking masterpiece like Killzone or RYSE, but it's still graphically impressive in it's own right.

A screenshot may look great, but if the whole thing falls apart the moment it starts moving, what's the point?

I don't know why they'd even point out otherwise. What good is a good looking game if it's no fun to play? It's like owning a beautiful car with no engine in it, then writing an article about just how good it looks.

I remember when people gave constructive arguments -_- I believe that ryse is the best looking game so far because of the amazing facial animation, the amazing amount of detail that went into the character models (like hair gently moving in the wind, which killzone sf lacks) and impressive lighting and shading technology as well as even more attention to detail like a fat character have jiggle physics on more than just the belly area. The resolution doesn't mean much when the facial animation is better than LA noire. Also people, take into account that the title says "so far" as in games THAT ARE ALREADY RELEASED.

"The resolution doesn't mean much when the facial animation is better than LA noire."

Which is all well and good, but considering that we're talking about a roman themed beat'em up facial animations mean nothing to gameplay.

Praise the amazing but superficial all you want, and this applies to KZ:SF as well, but please at least try to realize that LA Noire's facial animations were meant to be an active game mechanic.

I tend to disagree anytime I hear this. Having played both, Ryse has better, more developed character models, but not much else. The environments are worlds better in ShadowFall and this doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that Killzone is 1080p with MUCH more going on. Digital Foundry said it best, both have their strengths, but Killzone edges out the technical win.

As a PC gamer able to max any game out without breaking even a slight sweat, Killzone was the only game that fully stacked up to some of my best looking games, such as Crysis 3, Metro: Last Light, and Battlefield 4.

Ryse is really great, no doubt about it. But, i don't know that Ryse can compete against juggernaut like Killzone : Shadow Fall.

Not like some naked barbarians in Ryse with sword and shit, but those Helghasts..... Even rome soldiers doesn't have that amount of details like Helghasts.

With the skin shading on the characters and higher polygon count than the enemies in Killzone, Ryse has more detail the enemies even show cuts where you slice them

Killzone enemies just fall down
ABeastNamedTariq  +   587d ago
Because they got shot, not cut down. AND they wear armor all over. *facepalm*

And you seem to be comparing enemy detail to death animations. *double facepalm*

I agree, but it's also one of my most disappointing games of this gen so far.
NeoTribe  +   587d ago
Killzone sf is overall the prettier game. This has pretty much already been proven.
ATiElite  +   587d ago
KZ:SF is the BEST looking PS4 game. YES you are right as this has already been proven.

KZ:Sf looks better than anything on the WiiU, PS3, and X360 so again YES you are correct.

.........and I will leave it right there.

Please Post your PC specs before saying KZ:Sf looks better than any game ever!

As a PC gamer myself, you are one of the most condescending people I've seen here. It's because of that attitude that many of us are seen as "smug", "elitist" or what have you. Let his opinion ride, even if you don't agree. Never mind that he said nothing of Killzone being the "best looking game ever".

Never did he say that and CGI-Quality totally owned you into the ground. Before you make your next (probably laughable) comment, please ensure you understood every word of the post you are replying to, to prevent this from happening again.

Not only is it a prettier game, it also runs at a higher resolution and framerate witch a lot of sites/journalists like to disregard for some reason.
DigitalRaptor  +   587d ago
They also disregarded the solid and comprehensive online modes that Killzone: Shadow Fall has to offer. Most of the reviews of KZ were riding solely on the single player campaign, which is bizarre and if i was working at Guerrilla, i'd be pretty pissed off at that.

Ryse: has great character Graphics and some of the best facial graphics out! Level design was Good

Killzone Shadow fall: has a lot of colors and a lot of washed out colors too along nice funnel level design. Some good post processing effects and great animation

Battlefield 4: for it's shear size and destruction along with great particle effects plus strong graphics still stands head and shoulders over the first two as the Frostbite engine is just doing way more than Ryse and KZ.

BUT overall Arma III to me still holds the top spot as the game world seems and feels real and Arma 3 has more detail per square inch than all these other games. Great lighting, good animation (not as good as KZ) great post processing effects but The amount of detail is incredible.

So for me it's

1. Arma III
2. Battlefield 4
3. Ryse
4. KZ:Sf

I judge by Game world size, effects, post processing, Bleeding edge tech use, Draw distances and most importantly DETAIL and Animation.

Actually AC4 PC looks better than KZ:SF as it has more detail but I put KZ:sf because people seem to think it looks great. Again I like the art style and KZ has the best animation but lacks detail and has washed out colors at times.

Hmm, "Ryse: Son of Rome". That's a weird way to spell Killzone: Shadowfall.
Redempteur  +   587d ago
those kind of articles are ridiculous , even worse are the comment , the great majority of the people saying that X game on one console is better than the other have NOT played both games.

Trully ridiculous.
ATiElite  +   587d ago
I have!

I played Ryse and finished it, Love it. Although kinda repetitive but the RPG factor helps it along as learning new kills and combos break the repetitive gameplay

I played several hours of KZ:Sf before being bored by the SP and MP. It's MP is NOT my cup of tea but the SP is good but is just to linear feeling and repetitive but without an upgrade factor.

.I play BF4 Daily
.I play Arma 3 every weekend with my Clan
.I've started playing AC4 PC using a DS4 by the way sitting on my couch feet up on my 4K TV.
larrysdirtydrawss  +   587d ago
huh? ryse is the ultimate linear game in every way/shape/form,there is nothing open in it. killzone mp alone is better looking than ryse,forget about single player.. and the only way ryse sorta stays in the same ballpark as kz is because oh how linear the game is and also by taking huge hits to fps to add in more graphical punch.
Volkama  +   587d ago
You rest your feet on a 4k TV? That's outrageous!

BZNCAPONE  +   587d ago
i have killone shadowfall and ryse and imo i feel killzone graphically takes ryse. Ryse is great looking but IMO I feel that it just is not as clear or sharp as killzone.

Now Im sure some will hate me on this but while Killzone has amazing GFX the game play for me personally stunk. I was bored big time.

While Ryse has great GFX but is not as clear or sharp as killzone I like the story MUCH better.

Disagree or not thats just my opinion so take it as you will
Statix  +   587d ago
LOL... no.
WeAreLegion  +   587d ago
Most reviewers gave it to Killzone though. One said Killzone was the second best looking game, period. It was only topped by Crysis 3 on Ultra High.
sin7279  +   587d ago
ryse is the best looking game so far this generation ha ha ha ha ha is this a troll artickle.

Ryse has the better character design and facial features but Shadow Fall has the better looking environment.
DigitalRaptor  +   587d ago
Pretty much, yes this is true.

Xbox fanboys only see what they want to see. They think realistic facial expression and animation = overall better looking game.
IHassounah  +   587d ago
Sorry but ur a fanboy too if u consider graphics better than gameplay , both are bad at gameplay , hell even Killzone doesn't have a smart AI as Call of Duty , even Ryse gameplay is full of cutscenes , both are just intended to show what the consoles can do
Goku781  +   587d ago
Facial is the only thing ryse has over KZSF. Everything else KZ is better. Ryse isn't even 1080P.
Belking  +   587d ago
keep dreaming fanboy. no other console game out now can touch ryse in the graphics department. nice attempt by kz but it came up short as usual. xb1 is the console for real gamers.
KingKongKilla  +   586d ago
dude Shut Up About 1080P U Sound Like A Little Child But But It's Not 1080P I Ask My God Child, Bother, Uncle, Dad Hey Which Battlefield 4 Would U Wanna Watch Me Play? TheN They said What's The Difference There The Same Game. I Said Are They? They Said I Was A Retard For Buying The Same Game For Both Systems. They Couldn't Tell The Difference. Then I Said One Was SuppoSt To Be A Huge Graphical Change Guess I Was Wrong.
