New screenshots for Insomniac's upcoming PS3 exclusive, Resistance 2. These screens come from the latest single player gameplay videos and include a look at the unveiled city Chicago as well as the new creatures, The Grims.
looks better then the original, wonder how it looks like wen its finished but this game and mgs4 kills the whole entire exclusive line up 360 has to offer this year, which is like wat 1-3 ahahahahahahahahahahaha this pic looks hella sick
The huge monster looks insane.
This game is so going to be a AAA game.
It's shaping up to be the biggest game of the holidays,way to go Insomniac!
Sorry does not impress, the game should not have been shown yet as also it looks nothing like the fist images we saw. This is the problem with showing work in progress footage.
In my opinion and in the opinion of the majority of gamers,the game looks stunning for a Work In Progress title.
the gears trailer was just a rails shooting segment that was "meh". i wasn't impressed with that but it provided some new info on gears2 and that's good.i'm happy to get any new info on the game.(or any game i'm interested in for that matter) can't take much from look of game from a tv show. especially broken up like it was. but im stoked for the game none the less. i'm looking forward to the trailer that's being released at E3. i think you're being a little too critical. i'd rather have some info from time to time rather than nothing up till release!
Maybe I am being overly critical which is not the same as bashing(not that you say I was, but clearing it up for everyone else). The game lacks the polish we saw of say ratchet when it was first revealed. I think it is healthy to be constructively critical and not gushing with the hyperbole "ZOMG Insomniac am gods!!!!!" and so on. And looking at the video the game does not look like much of a step above the finer R1 moments later in the game. The lighting is bland, the textures are the same low resolution from 2 years ago. R1 was a launch title with addictive gameplay that got a pass in my book, R2 needs to impress me visually as a 3rd gen PS3. There is no use in comparing this to gears no good can come of that. New info is good but not at the possibility of people loosing interest and as it is I am less interested in the game than I was before. Which is not to say that I dont expect and hope the game turns out great, all I am saying is what I see now does not impress.
These screen shots as well as the footage did not impress me at all. Everything looked very flat and lacks detail. Not to mention they are still using that faded color palette from the first game. It just kinda looks like you are playing in the world of old worn photograph. Throughly disappointed with this because the footage looks nothing like those early "screen shots" that were revealed in magazines. And the new enemies look like those worker bees from the first game except they move faster. Skinny starving aliens not scary or intimidating. Ratchet, Uncharted and MGS 4 raised the bar for graphics on the PS3 and this game just doesn't deliver at this point.
And then tell me this game doesn't look incredible!
I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or you just have your fanboy glasses on. Whatever is the case that image pretty much sums up my impressions. Though I must admit it gives me a Cloverfield vibe and I'm not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing.
Anything that gives you a cloverfield vibe is a good thing. That film is amazing
HD game clipped in SD? the screenshots make R2 look like a ps2 game. watch the damn GT TV episdoe which will at least do R2 more justice!
Yea, it's pretty crappy compared to the GTTV HD version, but you gotta admit, it still looks awesome.
I just spilled my Coffee in awe,such a beautiful game :D
nothing incredible with them pics or what we have seen... I think youve used up every super duper licious words created so far using the lords name in vain for these pics come on..lol
When I saw the SD footage I was like "Looking great,but lets see if the HD footage looks better".And lo and behold,the HD footage looks much much better,so excuse me for being hyped for Insomniacs Gem.
This is the kind of thing I mean, It is by no means a lump of coal but it certainly isn't a "gem" just yet.
i was hooked on it during the 1st game. also, did anyone notice comment from one of insomniac guys about hale. a screen was shown and he says this is where hales life is getting close to ending. WTF? if it does end during this game, who is main character in R3? (i've heard price say that this would be a trilogy) really makes me think. man, i can't wait!
Well it has to be a trilogy because the game needs to end in Russia. That is where the Chimeran virus started.
If I saw the game on the Xbox-360 I would say the same, this is not a Xbox-360 V PS3 comment, I just think the screens are horrible. On the subject of Xbox-360 and PS3 I do however fail to see how PS3 owners who are impressed with the RFOM2 screens are not impressed with these? http://screenshots.teamxbox... http://screenshots.teamxbox...
Unreal engine was awesome a few years ago. I'm personally tired of Epics proprietary engine. I still think Gears looks great, and I'm excited as hell for it, but honestly it's time to move on. To put it in perspective it's like someone holding up a picture of Pam Anderson and saying, "Oh c'mon how can you not thing this is hot?", compared to someone who prefers say a natural beauty like Jennifer Connelly. Well you know if you like big cheesy plasticyness that's your prerogative, but don't assume everyone else shares your preference.
Why don't you look at some KZ2 pictures and tell me how GeoW2 compares to that. It doesn't. R2 will crush GeoW2 gameplay wise and KZ2 will crush GeoW2 graphics wise.
that is a very good answer. glad to see that we share the same viewpoint
I swear to god the 360 was solely built to run the unreal engine. Its rediculous. D#mn near every game on that console uses the unreal engine. Oh, btw Jennifer Connelly is one hairy b*tch
Why not spruce them up a bit the Spanish from UNCHARTED. ...........HELLO. I think the game will be fantastic.
I don't know about you guys but the game looks good so far. Keep in mind that it's not finished yet?
yeah, i completely agree with you,with the game being almost 5 months away it looks amazing!
"5.1 - It's easy Unreal engine was awesome a few years ago. I'm personally tired of Epics proprietary engine. I still think Gears looks great, and I'm excited as hell for it, but honestly it's time to move on. To put it in perspective it's like someone holding up a picture of Pam Anderson and saying, "Oh c'mon how can you not thing this is hot?", compared to someone who prefers say a natural beauty like Jennifer Connelly. Well you know if you like big cheesy plasticyness that's your prerogative, but don't assume everyone else shares your preference." What does this bizzare Metaphor have to do with gaming? Just for fun guys but when Six said this: "Well you know if you like big cheesy plasticyness that's your prerogative" I thought of the PS3, even though apart from the GPU the PS3 on paper is better hardware than Xbox-360.
Enemy's at the same time unlike some uncertain game on another console that has a chainsaw that cant fill the screen more then just 4 cause of the dumb CPU it has infact theres a commercial about Resistance Fall of Man and that narrator that is explaining about the Cell for the PS3 in what it can do.
now that you say this, I think that's why it reminds me of Serious Sam: hordes of enemies rushing at you while shouting like crazy! i love the retro 50's scifi feel... and the city looks great. it's gonna be a ball this fall!
Who ever thinks these screens look good. Needs to get there eyes tested. Look at the lighting and textures. They dont even compare to R1. It still needs alot work to it. No way does is look as good as the Teaser trailer. dont get me wrong i loved R1 and i belive that insomniac can easily pull it off.
the game is shaping up to look really good but has anyone noticed how one of those shots is from the duo stalkers level of R1?
As I am highly anticipating this game, I am disappointed on how the game looks, I just hope that Insomniac can boost up the visuals as well without compensating for the gameplay.
It doesn't look like they've created any lightmaps for the geometry though, which makes sense since they're still tweaking the gameplay and progression. Lighting is much improved (crisp shadows), but I do hope they increase the number of things going on in the background. There's a hell of a lot more enemies onscreen than before though.
oh ohhh ..not looking good...oh well
Still trying to look as good as Gears 1 and FAILING.
Does anybody remember the difference between Killzone's first showing and it's second at PSday ?? If so, you'd reserve judging a game for it's Textural quality and lighting refinements till a nearer to finished build.
insoimniac what have you done. this is still pre-alpha and the game is five months away. I cant wait really this is going to be one hell of a game. I just saw the HD footage of the single player, and i've gotta say it looks better than COD4. thats some power they have here. It isn't KZ2 but it's on par with gears or just a tad better. my word Insomniac you guys rock. your progression from R:fom to ratchet was ground breaking now from ratchet to a more realistic look beter lighting and textures the game Looks phenominal. if it's one company that knows how to properly leverage first gen tech and make it work over 2 more gens of games it's insomniac. they i believe are the only second party Dev in sony right now that have 3 games running on the same engine tahts optimized. 1st gen launch title, 2nd gen ratchet, 3rd gen Resistance 2... my word i cant wait
