I agree with this list but Ryse would be number 1.

The character models in Ryse were awesome. No current gen level looks better than The King level in Ryse. The foliage is unrivaled

And Battlefield 4 looks more realistic and has better shading than Killzone

I would say Ryse comes after Infamous Second Son and the Order 1886, personally.


Infamous Second Son

The Order 1886

I would also add Driveclub, it doesn't get enough credit for how beautiful it is.

That's what Mr. X said about infamous but then he got owned by the developers. In general 1st party titles on the PS4 dont suffer downgrades.

"The order in it's final state yet. You can't judge that until it releases."

we've actually seen *upgrades* between its initial announcement, and its latest gameplay footage... so your argument falls flat on its face.

You better read this to clear your foggy mind.

MasterCornholio1396d ago (Edited 1396d ago )


No Tex. The single player runs in 1080P so it wasn't downgraded. Only the multiplayer runs in 1080i.


Yeah I'm getting tired of "butt Ryse". Seriously its an launch game and there will be games after it that will look better than it.

SniperControl1396d ago


Spot on about Driveclub, have been very impressed with what i have seen so far.
There are a few 1080p captures floating about, jeez, it looks absolutely beautiful.

you should at least have played the games you're attempting to downplay.

all of the "facts" you've presented are opinions.

but the list is accurate - those are the 4 best-looking games out right now.

Spotie1396d ago

Xbox fans will be riding Ryse to the grave, it seems. Graphically, it was immediately eclipsed by Killzone, then Infamous. I'd argue The Show and Battlefield, too, in many aspects. Uncharted and The Order will be next, but Xbox fans will still be talking about Ryse.

Gozer1396d ago (Edited 1396d ago )

Lol, you don't have a clue. There is nothing currently on the market that can touch Ryse visually.


...are not even in the same league as this-

I invite everyone to watch these videos, and objectively make their own decision. And yes those are in-engine cutscenes, not cgi.

SniperControl1396d ago (Edited 1396d ago )


You need to google "infamous photo mode" and see what pops up, heres a few teasers.

All the above are in-game, also amazes that Infamous is an open world game that uses far more resources than ryse, a on rails linear experience.

Gozer1396d ago (Edited 1396d ago )


I agree. I was floored by how good Ryse looks. To the folks that are saying only the character models look good, you need to look again. The enviroments are gorgeous as well. Like you said, "The King" level is jaw dropping. Ive been gaming 34 years, and Ryse is the best looking game I have ever seen. There are times that the graphics are near photorealistic.

starchild1396d ago

I only own a PS4 and PC, but I can definitely see that Ryse looks incredible. Could be number one, I'm not sure. But nobody can deny it is easily one of the best.

GW2121396d ago

I don't believe anything you say. Nothing. I don't believe you've really seen any footage of the game outside of YouTube. We all know the deal there. If you had, you'd be saying something different rather than being the blind little kid you always are on this site. It's obnoxious. Pathetic and obnoxious.

To your last point: trust me, kiddo, you don't gross more than I do.

Magicite1396d ago

AC4 on PC looked stunning (foliage, weather, sea).
Beyond Two Souls impressed me more than Ryse.
What is Mario doing on this list?

assdan1396d ago

Pretty sure that the character models in infmaous are more detailed. I agree with three games on this list though. Ryse, Killzone, and Infamous. But I'm sorry, Mario kart? They were clearly just trying to throw nintendo fans a bone.

iplay1up21396d ago

Not really. If you play Mario Kart. If you look around the tracks it is almost like everything is alive. It is really a beautiful game. When You use slow motion, you can see even more detail than you realize is there during the race, because there is just so much going on.

Killzone visuals are top-tier. The lighting in Killzone still makes my jaw drop. Particle effects too. Amazing game, and the new maps cant be touched!

Volkama1396d ago

They pale in comparison to the Particle Explosion Future Systems and 21,000 frames per millisecond of Battleblock Theatre.

mayberry1396d ago

Killzone might pale in comparison to that and many other games, but it still rocks the visuals my friend.

starchild1396d ago

Agreed. Killzone Shadow Fall looks incredible and it doesn't seem to get enough credit. It looks just as good as Infamous Second Son to me.

DerekFlint0071396d ago

I'm still waiting for the real jaw droppers to arrive later on down the line, strangely Infamous Second Son never really gave me that wow factor, granted the sheer amount of stuff happening on screen at times is a real technical marvel but i didn't like the art style. Metal Gear ground zeroes can look amazing at times and then elsewhere can be pretty bland for me. Wolfenstein looked and ran great.

I have been most impressed with Asssasin's Creed black flag. Watching dolphins jumping out of the water, while the ocean waves crash along the deck of the Jackdaw for me is a sight to behold.

starchild1396d ago

I agree with you that Assassin's Creed 4 is really impressive looking. One of the best looking games I have played this year.

BTW, have you played Tomb Raider Definitive Edition? I think that game is easily one of the best looking games I have played on my PS4. I often find myself thinking that it even beats Killzone Shadow Fall and Infamous Second Son. It's hard to say, though. They're all incredible looking games.

DerekFlint0071396d ago

Yeah, i forgot about Tomb Raider, although i have not played it yet, it does look absolutely superb, i may pick it up over the weekend.

As you say though they are all incredible looking games, i can't wait to see Uncharted in action. The future games will look amazing and improve over time.

Meltic1396d ago (Edited 1396d ago )

Good Graphics but all the games story mode wasnt good. Infamous was Ok but the other ones didint Catch up. Remember good old gaming Days when Graphics wasnt a big deal. The developers concentrated more on the storyline now its only graphic graphic... Graphic is a + but a good storyline is better to play over and over again.

HaveSumNuts1396d ago (Edited 1396d ago )

Most of those games put graphics over gameplay.

Geekman1396d ago

No, TWO of them did. Infamous and Mario Kart had excellent gameplay.

CrowbaitBob1396d ago

I really enjoyed Killzone and Ryse.

Ryse was repetitive as heck, but I loved the combat so I didn't mind doing the same enjoyable thing over and over again.

I feel like Killzone did some really interesting things with the OWL. I love being able to essentially flank enemies with the OWL in single player. It just feels really tactical compared to more straight forward shooter campaigns.

I'm not much of a multiplayer gamer though so I'm certainly not going to speak to whatever the online multiplayer components were like. I enjoy single player campaigns and both Ryse and Killzone delivered for me on those fronts.

herbs1396d ago

Only one of these games has excellent gameplay to go along with its vibrant graphics at a rock solid 60fps = MarioKart.
Killzone = Very pretty very generic shooter.
Ryse = Awesome repeating character models with not so awesome repeating QTEs
Infamous = Gorgeous visuals with a stuttering framerate and repetitive short lived gameplay thats completely devoid of any challenge, basically made for children and casuals...
