That is beautiful. Those graphics are crazy, and they're probably gonna get better. That bommerang thing's pretty cool too.
In a way, I kind of missed the old style, but at least they're trying to do something different.
Gears sh8t all over it. After playing GOW on my 52" HD and on a 102" HD projector everything else just looks good not great.
This game looks great and there is plenty of time for improvement on the visual side. Gears looks great too, but there is defiantly some room for improvement. I'm looking at it on a 61" 1080p display so I see everything!! I don't think that it is fair to say that "Gears Sh8ts all over" this game, it's not even out yet. Wait until the game comes out to make a blut statment like that.
Give it some time Gears will be the "standard" of HD and something else will be considered better.

What is the level for judgement. Is great like a 10 or is it a 8. If GEARS is great then this is good. Fair enough, I need to see this in front of me. BTW if GEARS was done in 1080p you might get better results on the 1080p display. There are levels on gears that are just a rendered masterpiece.
That includes a 9! (which is what most reviews gave GOW.) I never said that the game was written for 1080p. In fact it was written for 720p but.... The X360 up converts and so does my HDTV so yes I SEE IT ALL!!!! I looked at the HD version of the Dark Sector video and it looks good, real good.
As a matter of fact you just proved my point. Your words,
"Fair enough, I need to see this in front of me."
All I'm saying is reserve judgment until the game comes out!
And I agree There are levels on Gears that are rendered masterpiece, but there IS room for improvement.
Case in point. On the level "DownPour" The water looks great on the ground and on the trees but there is little-to-no interaction with the character models. The rain doesn't hit the characters or role off of their armor. (only if you stand under a place where the water is falling off of something as a stream.)
I could cite other areas but there is not point, you get the drift. I'm not saying that the game is bad, but I'm also not saying that this is the end all of gaming visuals.
There will always be something better and I have seen some games that already show a lot of promise. This is one of them.

P.s. To Oldb0y, Cliffy B said something about jumping that I really agree with. (and I am paraphrasing) "In a real fire-fight you will not be jumping about like a mad-man." In to many games like halo 1&2, Unreal and other games resort to jumping and it gets really old really quick.
In a real gunfight you would be rolling, ducking, taking cover, blind firing, sound like some game we know!!!
Just a thought, jumping is not realistic for a protagonists to do IN A WAR.
Indeed this game looks great so far. I would love it if it weren't a fixed camera for 3rd person view like GoW. Give it the option for a further camera distance and 360 rotating (such as in Ninja Gaiden) and you've got a nice hybrid action/shooter game that can compete with Gears and Devil May Cry.
And speaking of "Jump[ing] in," can they give the character the ability to jump please? I've grown weary of my protagonists being stuck to the ground.
Doesn’t the new weapon look like the one out of the film Krull. What are game designers running out of fresh idea’s??
Yeah, I remember that movie, great classic. I don't think it's just "running out of fresh ideas", it's just that a weapon like the one in Krull hasn't been used in a videogame before.
Wow I can't believe someone besides me remembers that movie. Anyway the Glave weapon has been used in the Warcraft series and something very similar to was used in the AvP2 game. This is the closest in design to the one in Krull though. I don't believe it's a sign of less fresh ideas. Would you say "Oh no a pistol or a sword, they must be running out of ideas"
Wow, that looks fantastic. The lighting effects look better than GoW
are their using the unreal engine
yes its the PS3 version, look in the viedos its a PS3 X there when he is about to cut the first guys neck
