CryEngine Incredibly Powerful, Best Looking Next Gen Game is Ryse – Star Citizen Creator

"Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome released for the Xbox One at launch, and was also built using CryEngine. The team took advantage of customized anti-aliasing and an overall film-based post processing treatment to deliver on the visual front." (PC, Ryse: Son of Rome, Star Citizen, Xbox One)

The engine is excellent, and the game is very good looking.

But the best next gen game.

Yes Ryse it is one of the better looking launch games.

However Star Citizen seems to be in a whole other graphics league, I really hope star citizen will also come to next gen consoles.

Sorry its still not the best looking game maybe its the best looking on XB1 but on PS4 BF4 and KZ:SF both look better. They have better textures, environments, frame rates and resolution. Those are undisputed facts.

If he is referring to it looking the best in facial tech and cut scenes I would definitely agree. But as far as how a game looks when being played, I would say killzone and then battlefield look the best.
elninels  +   730d ago
@Thehitman, I own a ps4 and love it. I have killzone, and it is stunning, but I still believe is ryse is more aesthetically pleasing from what I've seen than killzone. The ps4 will have better looking games than the xone will, its simply more powerful and thoughtfully planned, but in that isolated comparison my opinion differs from yours.

I too hope that Star Citizen comes to Next Gen. consoles, but I'm not holding my breath… Not in the slightest…

The reasoning behind my skepticism?

In response to the "panic" of PC gamers after they spotted a PS4 devkit on Roberts Space Industries CTO Jason Spangler’s desk, Roberts took to Star Citizen’s forums to explain the following (among other things):

“Star Citizen IS a PC game. It will NEVER be dumbed down for a lesser platform. We will NOT limit the input options or supported peripherals to the lowest common denominator. We will NOT pass on features and technology just because they will only run on some hardware configurations.”

“I LOVE the PC as a platform because it is open, is always moving forward, with new powerful components (usually at cheaper prices) becoming available to gamers available every year... Because of this Star Citizen will always be primarily a PC game and will embrace the best and newest tech.”

Basically the same PC Elitism we console gamers all have to put up with on a daily basis… Now, that's not to say that the game won't come to consoles (Note the "Star Citizen will always be primarily a PC game" line in the last sentence of quotes, as well as a few other mentions throughout his written response), but I wouldn't get remotely excited until Roberts flat-out confirms it.

-No scott you don't have to agree, still he said plainly in terms of "visuals and looks", with no qualifier like just "facial tech" being mentioned, he even went further and stated Ryse is "technically" superior:

“Ryse is a fairly simplistic God of War mash-em up but just in terms of visuals and looks, it’s by far the best looking…its better looking than Killzone [Shadow Fall]. I’m a big Killzone fan but just technically if I look at Ryse and I look at Killzone, Ryse is superior. -Chris Roberts Star Citizen creator, industry veteran and all around legend

-Also there are plenty of devs out there using Unreal Engine, Unity and others that never say "blank" game using the same engine as their upcoming game is the best graphically so the logic that he needs to say that to sell his game is silly for a veteran guy like this, he just acknowledging like many others have that Ryse has the best next gen graphics so far. Ironicly no one outside of sony sources and ps fans on n4g say KZ SF has the best next gen graphics so far, which speaks for itself.

-lol, This is why I can never take *most n4g ps folks seriously 'cause its very obvious they never can give credit where credit is due. I remember when KZ 2 came out, the media consensus, majority opinion was that it was at the time best graphics on consoles, I agreed and said so publicly as much as I loved Gears as the better overall game KZ 2 was more impressive graphically.

-Clearly despite ps4 being more powerful and that eventually it will exceed Ryse graphics, Ryse visually offers the best next gen graphics at launch. Fact is both will have better games in terms of graphics but really if you believe most games on either based on the hardware specs of both are going to look miles better than Ryse I think you believe the hype too much, I mean just look at the facts even PC'S now with higher specs than ps4 don't have many games that graphically look miles better Ryse or KZ SF for that matter so fact is there is a ceiling that even the best engine is going to be limited to in terms of hardware. Folks dont like to admit that but if Im crazy just put up pics for any pc game vs Ryse demonstrating a dractic difference in visual quality. Again which is why Iam not worried about X1 delivering great games vs ps4, bottom line X1 is less powerful than ps4 but great graphics should be expected from both since even X1 is alot more powerful than previous gen consoles but neither are more powerful than current pc's which only deliver marginally better graphics anyway.

I just want great games that look better than last gen but the quality and content of the game should be waaay more talked about, yet DR3 is looked down upon more by the 1080p crowd while Knack is upheld as something next gen.

Man, let it go. Ryse does look the best, anyone that disagrees is in denial, at the very least it has the best graphics. There's a perfectly logical reason as to why. Same reason Uncharted looked so good.

Also, as if Crytek have the right to take it away. What is going on in that head of yours?

I have no doubt over Chris. I love his games. WC series are by far my most fav PC games in the past. However I think many people just never take into account that whatever he said is basically trying to indirectly promote his own game. Seriously no developer in the right mind would come out straight and say the engine they use for their game is bad. So it does not come as a surprise for him to give praise on Ryse being a game running on CryEngine and if he is going to be using the same engine for his own game. If you twist the scenario around that SC is going to be using the engine KZSF is running on, I think his words would have been twisted around. That is just another PR talk. IMO I do agree Ryse does look good visually. I do no dispute that. I agree that CryEngine is indeed a good engine and I think that is a well known fact. But I still do not think Ryse is a real showcase due to the fact that firstly the framerate isnt very well optimized. 2ndly the game mostly uses a lot of repeated assets and also smaller environment. Those factors alone would allow you to push the engine to do more. Comparing to games like KZSF or BF4 where the game design is of a larger scale, more randering work require is just silly imo. They are completely of 2 different category in terms of game design.

I find it quite amusing that you said that. Shows the ridiculous nature of fanboyism.

So many PS fanboys loved to compare Uncharted with other games while avoiding the truth, that it was a corridor shooter and couldn't be compared to more open games that require more power. Now the rules have apparently changed and it is now not okay to compare open vs closed games because it is an Xbox game.

In answer to your post, Cryengine 3 is powerful. You can say that it is all PR talk as much as you want, doesn't change the fact that it is an amazingly powerful engine and was chosen because it can perform incredibly and will look amazing for years to come.

I own both system and yes graphics on both looks nice. Game play on most xbox games is mehh feels like the last 3 years Ms been making gets for the xbox 360 and at the last minute decided to port the games over to the xb1.

I'm pretty sure that Chris Roberts is intimately familiar with the strengths and short comings of both next-gen consoles.

He chose to develop on PC for a reason. More power, less restrictions, and he got the overwhelming support of PC gamers.

The only one who is surprised here is you, surprised that he isn't praising the power of the Playstation 4.

Sorry but this has already been proved by professional that Killzone 》 rise

Rise does have the best faces in cut scenes.

Obviously who cares anyways.. there are already better looking games that will come out soon plus the ones that are coming in the next few years into this gen will look better.

Lunch games are very limited and does not represent the true power.. GG will show their true talent in their second game.

They did a amazing job by having limited time and resources. GG are amazing devs
starchild  +   730d ago
Killzone Shadow Fall has a lot of mediocre textures and the overall geometry, shadow quality and effects work isn't up to the standard of Ryse. The character models in KZSF are also far behind.
ssj27  +   730d ago
It's not indeed a polished game but it's the best at the stuff it do right and at the stuff GG had time to polish been this a lunch game and having such a limited time.

I do agree facials are very poor except in two characters, but that about it. If we count the mask the helgash had they are very well polished and derailed plus this is a fps and fps, they focus on environment and immersion and Killzone shadow fall does a good job plys it does have some huge levels with amazing detailed background that has things happening in real time.

KILLZONE SHADOW FALL is indeed the most polished lunch game.. compare Killzone to BF or COD... those other two games look and play far inferior with far more bugs and unplayable online and bugs from day one.

The only error Killzone shadow fall start having, was a month after and is just lag ..
Tsar4ever  +   730d ago
Ryse looks great because of the Crytek engine, not because of the XB1's graphical capability. This the same engine that made Crysis2 & 3!! Of course it look great! The Cryengine3 is one of the best graphic & famous tech next to Frostbite3, Unreal3/4 and Id tech 5. If Ryse was a multiplat game, than just imagine how much BETTER Ryse would look & perform on the PS4!?

It is in some areas but in others it is not.

There are areas where it definitely wins but there are tons of areas where it falls flat. In any case the first set of games we got for Next gen consoles does not represent each one, both's next waves will demolish Ryse and Killzone.

Have to say its really a boring game I have ever played lame story chars. And worst combat system I ever played. As 4 the graphics I would say the only thing it looks good on is the chars, faces and body but not much as KZSF better an everything else and much better of a next gen game then ryse. I personally can't wait 4 next gen crysis and hopefully is better then 3 as crysis 1 and 2 were my favorite.

When you play on PC a lot, yes, the new consoles simply don't wow you. That's because you have already seen better graphics in PC games.

Shadowfall is the only game that competes with Ryse in looks...

I don't know of a single media article by a cross platform reviewer that said shadowfall is better looking than Ryse. Sony fanboys and sony only reviewers say Shadowfall is better, Xbots and xbox reviewers say Ryse is better looking. Multiple cross-platform reviewers said Ryse is the best looking game this gen so far. I do not know of any cross platform reviewers that said shadowfall looks better than Ryse...

To me, pretty much anything that has decent anti-aliasing looks better than anything on PS3/360, or any other platform that has rampant jaggies.

I simply cannot stand the sight of jaggies. PS4 and Xbox One should be able to eliminate this problem.
starchild  +   730d ago
There are lots of games on PC that look better than anything on PS3 or 360.

Tomb Raider, Alan Wake, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, Metro 2033, Metro Last Light, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Castlevania Lords of Shadow, The Witcher 2, Dead Space 3, Metal of Honor Warfighter, Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3 and quite a few others all look hands down better than any of the best looking games on PS3 or 360.

I mean, think about it, we have quite a few people in these comments saying that Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is the best looking game on a NEXT GEN console. This is a version of a game that Digital Foundry said still doesn't beat the PC version. I've played both versions and Digital Foundry is right. The PS4 has some new additions that are nice, but the PC has advantages in other areas and still looks the best overall.

I think some of you don't realize just how much better a lot of multiplats look on the PC vs on the consoles.

I think both games look great and it shouldn't matter which one is better looking. I understand that the Artists feel it as a challenge to come on top in the graphics department, but the games are both totally different and shouldn't be compared.

Compare PS4 Battlefield 4 and Tomb Raider and yes; the PS4 comes on top. To me that doesn't make the games any less fun on the Xbox One.

I think we all know now that the PS4 is stronger, unless MS can create magic in the future (I do hope so, because I do like graphics). But let's just accept that fact and enjoy the consoles/games and talk about whether games are fun and what you enjoy about your console.

I think these type of websites would be a lot more fun without the constant bickering and childish who has the biggest p*n*s responses that don't always fit in certain topics.

IMHO, they're not really comparable.

Killzone is a more open world with more happening on the screen as well as more detail in the world and not just the people.

Ryse is a game focused on the people.

Technically speaking, Ryse is superior in tech, but in doing so it limits how that tech can be utilized.

That's just my opinion and comparing the two is akin to comparing Uncharted 2 and Heavy Rain. They're just not comparable since the have different give and takes as far as game design and graphical technology.

Comparing any last gen game to current gen is nonsensical. Even if it's only 900p, it's running better and looking better than last gen.

No doubt RYSE is the best looking game out period right now.No game on any platforn can touch it.Not only that but the game is amazing been through it 3 times already.Glad it was a hit with gamers and is nearing the million mark.For a new launch title thats hard to do

Something to consider when comparing Ryse to KZ, is the significant differences in aesthetic and themes. KZ is future is based, with a lick, streamlined aesthetic, while Ryse takes place in ancient Rome, with a grittier feel. regardless of graphic capabilities, these differences alone are going to sway peoples opinions one way or the other.

When speaking about which game "looks" better, it is important to recognize graphics vs aesthetics, since they are not the same thing. Bringing up rendering techniques and polycounts aren't really going to matter if it's the games aesthetic that that really works well for it, and bringing up gameplay aspects (which many here have) have nothing to do with the topic.

Aesthetics, not graphics, tend to be the things that people are drawn to when discussing how good a game looks, since it covers everything from art design, color pallets, sound, lighting, atmosphere and more.

Xbox fanboys trying to level Ryse up again? KZ has more going on in the environment while maintaining a higher frame rate and solid resolution unlike Ryse. Ryse has better character models since that's what they focused on the most then the environment. The World of Ryse is simple. Statues, grass, water, and Greek buildings. That's not much art to appreciate tbh. Shadowfall forests, futuristic buildings, ads, weapons etc far exceeds Ryse. Under absolute scrutiny, Shadowfall is the best looking. Ryse is a beautiful game, but X fanboys and Crytek and their affiliates are only natural to say Ryse looks the best. Like all fanboys, xbots go off what they want to hear like other slaves. Most of you in N4G can't handle criticism and meticulous juxtaposition. Disagrees, your vote is nothing and your nonsensical replies are futile.

So an expert stated his opinion about a game that is only on one console...this game also uses the same engine he is using for his game...What most people are not taking into context is that this is his OPINION!!! It doesn't mean its a FACT for EVERYONE...Here is my take on the two games...

- Ryse -

1) Has incredible facial animations! (probably the best so far for launch titles)
2) Has really cool death animations (though limited) it does make for a "oh cool" impression!
3) Has decent particle effects and is a fun game none the less
4) Runs a little slow (frame-rate) at times and is 900p

- Killzone: Shadow Fall -

1) Has really good frame rate and picture quality!
2) The colors are vibrant/the blacks are dark and there are a ton of particle effects!
3) Has some good death sequences/animations (at times)
4) Facial expressions are not as good as Ryse

All in all these are two different games but can be fun none the less.

Guys remember this is just his opinion and to him its a FACT.

No need to disagree (just reply and say what you feel)

To those who say who cares about frame-rate and 1080p please guys why would you not want the best of both worlds?
If you don't get it then you don't get it but don't be so harsh for those that do get it and are happy with it.

Vice Versa guys!
