These games' graphics will have you doing double takes.
I like how Gametrailer low blow Killzone 2 by saying it just another FPS. Well isn't Far Cry just another FPS? Isn't Gears of War just another TPS? Gametrailers is getting really lame now
The impression I got was that they find that Killzone 2 brings a nice refreshing to a pretty outplayed/cliché sub-genre. But, maybe that's just me.
There are only so many coats of paint you can put on an FPS. They all tend to look great, but at the core is the game going to be that much better than anything else out there? You run around with a gun and blow things up. Is there more?
i've been up in the air about KZ2 for a while until i watched this video http://www.gamersyde.com/st... now i have no doubt its the best looking game i've ever seen on any console or pc.
you forgot the exploding barrels!!
He didn't call it just another FPS, he said "the best seems to rise to the top, even when it's just another para-military FPS. (i.e. COD4ish) But I agree 100% KZ definitely had the best graphics. Can't wait to get this one. Gears, and RE5 look great also.
Killzone is a day one purchase for me, I can't wait. Far Cry 2 is going to be great aswell.
I think Gears2 and KZ2 are both looking fantastic. Lets think back on when we saw the first CG trailer for KZ2. We were all blown away. I think I saw it a hundred times, and showed it to everybody I knew who were a little interested in gaming. Then it turned out Sony hadn't told us the whole truth. Think of the pressure this put on Guerilla Games. They had to deliver graphics that they were not even sure was possible. Then now we see they have met the CG trailer. That is a f_cking job well done. Sony must have seen something in GG that no one else did. I hope Sony's big announcement isn't some big new IP. I hope it's a big new studio, because god dammit, Sony's first party games simply sets the standard.
I'm probably gonna be getting ALL of those games. I'm such a graphics whore (-_-;)...
Killzone 2 is indeed the best looking game second place i would say its a tie betwen Resident Evil 5 and Gears 2. Edit: I forgot Far Cry 2 is also very good looking.
I think resistance 2 looks better than most of those games except for killzone. Fallout 3 is up there too.
Probably looks even a bit better than Gears 2 in some areas and they still got months of dev to wrap it up. I think its UE3 that has hit its speak in graphics not the 360.
gears 2??? no way, it looks just like gears 1 theres no contest between killzone 2 and gears 2
I have to agree that Resistance 2 should have been in this list and GT are clearly going out of their way to ignore it. They'd rather show off SFIV instead. No offense meant to SFIV of course - it's looks good, but then again so does that PS3 Naruto fighting game. Soul Calibur IV isn't exactly behind it graphics-wise either.
Gears 2 and Killzone 2 both look great in their own respect, I'm having a hard time determining which looks better. Regardless of which they pick between those two, it's always a deserved winner imo. @below: You just had to turn this into a fanboy fight didn't you? And you actually seem to have this idea that I give a sh*t about what some random internet fanboy tough guy thinks. You're on my ignore list now so don't waste you're time anymore replying to my posts.
Resistance 2 looks as good as Gears 2 but KZ2 is on a different level
No resistance 2 does not look as good as Gears 2. Edit: And KZ2 looks better to the eye than Gears 2.
http://www.insidegamer.nl/p... Killzone 2 beats everything in all respects by mountains. no denying there..oh do see the character models in R2 and lighting dont dare comparing gears2 with kz2 Resistance 2 will look as good as anything in Fall during its release
Resistance 2 actually looks BETTER.
I admit that gears2 looks good but I just hate that it uses Unreal 3 engine. Im so sick of it, It's old technology to me.
Im sorry, I am a HUGE fan of resistance but tick for tack Gears is better looking, right now anyway. the environmental textures are just too flat in resistance.
Gears textures suck too. And i know it looks better Resistance 1. But all of the Gears of War textures look all shiny and look alike with different colors. But if you take all lighting off....textures wonk look as good because they wont shine. A good example of good textures is Metal Gear Solid 4. Just by looking at the walls, get that feeling they look rough. Whereas Gears of War you dont get that feeling. They feel like plastic and cheap. And im not saying Gears sucks or looks bad. IMO I pefer Gears over Resistance (dont hold it against me but its because im tried of FPS's).
for a 360 exclusive.
Nice to see so many awesome-looking games in one vid.
Low blows such as: "even though its just another generic shooter" Well isnt Far cry 2 just another shooter? And Grays of war 1.5? And looks like they didnt even watched the KZ2 multi player vids. And Im surprised that Resistance 2 isnt on the nominees list. Looks like some people havent seen the latest R2 direct feed which proves without ANY DOUBT that Resistance 2 looks better than Grays of war 1.5 Behold the raw power: http://www.insidegamer.nl/p... The power of Resistance 2. Just check out the lighting, the details, the animations of the characters and the enemies. And check out how the "teaser trailer" from Dec 2007 is all IN GAME. Didnt bots say it couldnt be done and it was all CGI? OWNED. Resistance 2 is going to murder Grays of war 1.5. And its not even a finished build. Be afraid bots. This fall its gonna hurt so bad, it will feel like as if 12 June 2008 all over again... Sackboy and Hale are going for your throat. What you gonna do hahaha.
You know,I watch videos of crysis and far cry 2 and motorstorm 2 and go 'wow,killzone needs work' and then I watch these videos of killzone 2 and it just looks better everytime!!! This game's phenomenal
poor xbots looks like your greys of war 1.5 didnt match the suprior graphics of killzone 2 on the PS3, poor xbots jus look now the site known as xbot fan site now say ps3 has the most suprior graphics poor xbots
lol angelitos style, hahahha anyway i think that 1 of the best graphics i ever seen in gaming really impressive
all in all every game in there looks AWESOME. KZ2 looks more "realistic/scifi" while gears has the best "fantasy/scifi" graphics. But KZ2 has come a long way to meet the CG trailer that we were shown ways back. and it certainly hasnt disappointed me.
"Looking great" for KZ2 is an understatement. It looks incredible.
I already know nothing that has ever been on conoles matches Killzone 2 graphically because at least one writer from every third party game site has already said so.
gotta be in FULL denial mode to say Res 2 looks better than Gears 2. edit : it wasnt even nominated so, wonder why youre bringing it up.
actually it was nominated, watch the video again
The HD Resistance 2 Video then watch the Gears 2 Video. Watch the Resistance video again and watch them side by side. I bet you'll sing " I can see clearly now the fog (I mean rain) is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way (not having a PS3)".
I'm actually going to agree with La Chance for once, Resistance 2 does not look as good as Gears 2, but the game's are unfinished. Gears of war was revered for great graphics and it's gameplay, so that's where they've built Gears 2 up on first. resistance was built up to run smooth then to look great ( for a launch title to run so smooth in splitscreen and lag free online, it looked great ) so that's what they're doing now. Getting the game working. I seriously believe that Resistance 2 will be a great looking game, they have full Sony support and the information from the other first party studios.
SF4 is looking sweet. /drools @ KZ2 and Gears 2. I noticed glaring imperfections in RE5 E3 Unedited Trailer (This showing edited those out). It looks great at times and flawed in other times. I just hope they take the time to pollish those out.
well deserved for Killzone 2. it is in fact one of the best looking games ever. even better than Crysis, imo.
Was there ever ANY doubt? But with GameTrailers you can never be too sure of anything PS3-related.
That is cool that Killzone won. Im just surprised that fallout 3 didn't get a mention
am i the only one that think fallout looks super boring?
We are not talking about that this is pure visual extravaganza. It may look boring color and gameplay wise but the graphics and landscape is truly amazing.
yeah right now R2 doesnt look as good, but insomniac does gameplay first, graphics are an afterthought, and still, ratchet is arguably the best looking game on the ps3, and if its true that the final game will be as big as a graphical leap as ratchet, ill be damned if it didnt look better then gears 2.
And just think, Killzone 2 was still running in Pre-Alpha Code.... this game is going to look even better when it hits shelves because since it was delayed to Feb. 2009, Guerrilla has time to polish the HELL out of Killzone 2. At first I was thinking that GT was going to give it to Gears 2, but Killzone 2 is just a monster of a game and it will definantly be one of the most graphically impressive games of 2009 ( along with MAG, and God of War 3 of course!)
is like an inside joke. That's not really the stage of the build.
The videos, however, are pre-alpha and alpha code. Most developers don't show the most recent code because it's buggy, they show the last successful build.
Pre alpha is a term used for a program before it is feature complete or finished from beginning to end. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Yet, most of these games still can't match the brilliance that is Uncharted. Still one of the best looking games ever made. Glad to see Killzone 2 won, but, really, it had to. Technically speaking, Killzone 2 has the best graphics. I used to think Gears 2 had better graphics than Resistance 2, but that was before I saw an HD video with beautiful fleshy and moist character models. San Francisco looks stunning and looks every bit as good as Killzone 2. It's Chicago that needs a little work. The Leviathan is one of the best models I've ever seen, but the environment needs a bit of work. As some have already mentioned, they need to add some reflections in the water and glass. Nicer textures for some of the insides of the building, etc... It doesn't help that Chicago was the big level they were pushing. San Francisco made my eyes well up. Besides that, nice selection. Fallout 3... meh. It looks okay. I didn't think it was all that great. Maybe I should watch some higher quality videos. Mirror's Edge definitely should have been mentioned. Big no no and wag of the finger for not making the nominees list. Other than that, can't wait to see how the final versions turn up. :D
Hard to believe that with PS3 in your name that you thought both looked better than gears 2. Funny how that worked out. For gfx KZ 2 > gears 2 > resistance 2. Let's not bring gameplay into this though. I dont have enough tissues to pass out to all the killzone fans. Sony is putting it's holiday spot light on resistance not killzone. Nov is the month that all the big guns come out not march.
VirusE, that was actually an accident. I was trying to come up with a user name since my original (Basch) was taken. At that time, I had no PSN ID or Xbox Live GamerTag. I had no working Internet connection for my systems. So I had to guess which names would work. I had recently signed up at MyResistance with the same problem and decided to go with BaschPS3 so it would be easier to remember (Basch on PS3 game's website). When I signed up at N4G, I spent too much time coming up with a name and threw the towel in and tried BaschPS3 since I had used it for MyRes and thought no one else would take that. Since then, I now have a working internet connection to all three of my systems (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii). The name I now use for my PSN ID/GamerTag is NeoBasch. If I knew of a way to change my current user name, believe me, I would. As for assumptions. You should never assume. I have had my 360 since I got my delayed preorder in February (I take it no one remembers those shortages). I bought the Wii later that year, and the PS3 a year after that. I have played many games and found favorites for each system. I use each quite extensively. No matter what it may seem like from any comments on these boards, because frankly you can't judge a person through the keystrokes they make. I'm sorry you don't agree that I should be able to express myself, even if it goes against popular opinion (as the media would make it seem). Unlike them, I give everything a fair shake and am open to a multitude of genres. I love new and original IPs and invest in them to show my appreciation. Still, I do not push my ideals on others, because I have enough respect to know that each individual is unique and equally important. Everyone is free to express they're opinion. At least, that is what I believe.
it got shafted last year, lost to cod4, i think. dunno. cheers guerrilla.
what are you talking about? oh wait nevermind you mean last years awards. sorry for the disagree
PS3 & Killzone 2
wait until you see God Of War 3. Did you know Guerrilla was taking notes from the guys making God Of War3?? so, just imagine how it will look, the devs said it looks like Beowulf. That's very impressive.
The 360 days are over, over [email protected] OVER!!
360 days are over?. The way I see it is that if MSFT had those devs and engines on the 360 PS3 games will still be superior on the 360 as games always are, remember its the 360 that can match the PS3 easily not the other way around.
So why haven't they done so PoG? Lol they've had time to catch up, where is it? Where is there all mighty graphics? Oh right. They maxed it out with Gears.

KZ2 http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... GOW2 http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... You're lucky people are so surprized PS3 can produce a game like KZ2 they blurr the lines of reality or to cater to fanboys. KZ2 looks good for a PS3 game lol. http://www.n4g.com/events_e...
Dude if KZ2 was on the 360 you'd be all over it. Stop calling other people fanboys, you're a big one. Those screens of KZ2 are very bad. Maybe this will change your mind: http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
...Just another FPS? I'm sorry, but Killzone 2 looks amazing-not just graphically but in it's storyline. I never knew about the first game but I am so picking up this one. Hey, they don't call them Gaytrailers for nothing people. And Resistance 2 looks awesome as well. That Leviathan still has me shaking my head.
WTF!!? Where the F*** is MIRROR'S EDGE!!??? Where are Crysis: Warzone and MotorStorm 2 among noms? WTF is Street Fighter 4 doing there? Sure, it looks good but Prince of Persia, Fallout 3 and many others.
I had a feeling they were going to pick gears 2.. glad they made the right choice because killzone 2 puts everything to shame..
K I L L Z O N E 2 will crush anything and everything xbox has coming.PLAY BEYOND waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay BEYOND!!!
Killzone 2, best game of show- LBP best graphics of show- KZ2 we win E3 :D
That games looks awesome too
I'm still not crazy impressed with KZ2 but I love the extra features they have added to give it more depth. GEOW2 is still my pic for best visuals and RFOM2 doesn't even deserve to get mentioned imo.
They didn't mention R:tfom2. If it impresses you or not, it won. Just give the damn game(and devs) some freaking respect now.
But, but, but, bu.
Killzone 2> Queers of war 1.5 Taken R2, too, then you have PS3>>>>>Xbox 2
wheres resistance 2? wheres naruto ultimate storm? There are more games but these 2 surprise gamers with the graphics alone yet not a mention of them. I'll even go as far as the new ufc game breaking barriers. I guess you can't have too many ps3 only games on gametrailers without losing the 12 year old fanbase.
