In these new screens at TheHDRoom you get to go up close and personal with the Flameboomer, amongst other enemies.
Looks incredible. That's some really crisp textures.
First UE made everything look like it came out of the Vaseline monster. Now everything looks dusty and rough, though now with better lighting.
Looks a little outdated IMO when you compare them to games like Killzone 2, Uncharted, Heavy Rain, etc etc. Still looking like the best 360 graphics though and the character models are very nice.
but those are some of the best textures and graphics i have seen in [email protected] killzone 2 may be able to top this, but i think these graphics definitely top uncharted (i never thought i'd say that, and i know i'll get disagrees for it)
Uncharted have more of a cartoon art direction, both game look great. I think Gow2 has the edge but by a slightly margin.
Lol, did just say a PlayStation 2 game is better than a PlayStation 3 game visually?
This would have been impressive last year but not this year. There's about 10 games that look better than this that are coming this year or next year. The textures are blurry and clearly blu-ray is needed here.
Man that really looks good.
@ 1.6 No i meant to say Gears of War 2, my bad. lol.
I love my PS3 more than my 360..... But damn... If I have to listen to anymore fanboys talk this game down I'm going to loose it. To me only KZ2 match what I see here. The 360 has a sh*t year if you ask me, but Gears 2 is a monster. Stop talking it down. It looks stunning and the first Gears multiplayer was fantastic. The only problem was lag. It's my most wanted this year.... Right after Little Big Planet of course.
A lot of PS3 fans hating in here. This game looks great, period. Be gamers not haters.
buy a 360 when the 60gb 299$ comes it's so cheap trust me with ps3 and 360 in one room you'll be more happy ps3 and 360,friends forever no fanboyism I win,you lost(fanboys)
still not sure why people put uncharted in the same category as this game...or most other games for that matter. i was hugely unimpressed with it. generic disney-style story, flimsy and repetative gameplay, mediocre graphics. and while i agree the UE3 is getting old, Gears pushes its limits and actually makes it look impressive. No question this will be top selling exclusive of the year and most played online game for a loooong time.
Yes these screens do look great but lets be honest here that alot of screen shots taken from EPIC are usually over done compared to the actual game. Same thing they did with UT3. Im not denying these screens look gorgeous but at the same time they look like bullshots because from everything ive seen in motion on gametrailers I have yet to see any in motion as clean as those screens. As for Uncharted looking cartoony? Dont know what game u were playing but Uncharted is still one of the best looking games thus far even though that game came out like a year ago. See for yourself and these aint no bullshots. http://img300.imageshack.us... http://img144.imageshack.us... http://img297.imageshack.us... http://img144.imageshack.us... http://img300.imageshack.us... http://img297.imageshack.us... http://img297.imageshack.us... I still cant say which game looks better out of the 2 because Uncharted is still a game I can throw on now and be amazed. But no doubt both games do look great.
Uncharted does look at leat 5x as good. Much better textures, way better lighting. And much more fun! Uh oh! Not really, but I do like Uncharted more than Gears(I want GeoW2 anyways, looks fun)
It does look really nice, no doubt about it. The one thing I hate about Gears 1 & 2 is the character and some weapon designs though. The characters look terribly generic and ridiculous, I'm sorry. I also can't get into many of the Locust designs, they just look lame to me. I know people LOVE chainsaws, but a chainsaw on a gun just seems silly and a bit gimmicky to me, but I know that's a sensitive issue. I truly don't understand the obsession with chainsaws :/. There's also this stupid looking pistol I saw in some screens. Well, here's to hoping this game gets released on PC!
Meh, i don't really like gears of war's dark graphics, i wish they could brighten it up just a bit to around Unreal tournament level then i'd love it even more.
It's good to see that some gamers still have integrity and don't consider it a sin to admit that another platform's graphics look great. Keep spreading the love, and death to all fanboys.
people please dont argue Uncharted shots for u http://www.neogaf.com/forum... ofcourse Killzone 2/Heavy Rain/Mgs4 looks better than Gears 2 as well BTW these are Bullshots of Gears 2
I am pretty die-hard Sony but I think those shots are pretty dang nice. I didn't like the video footage of this game as much because it looked "painted" but this is much more crisp. Cheers for X360 getting this and I will be equally happy with Resistance 2 and KZ2. Great games for both the current gen systems versus a certain "kart" playing plumber's system that couldn't push any of those 3 games.
I'll donate my left nut to charity if that's really the a 360 screen shot. Looks more to me like a PC running it in 720p with like a Radeon 4870 or a Nvidia 8800 GT.
I am sorry.... I am sorry. Are you all too stupid to realise bullshots? The UE 3 engine cannot handle AA in any of it's games on the next generation consoles. It's a fact. And it's one of the very few bottlenecks the engine has. The AA on this is GODLY. Bullshot confirmed. And even with that, the 2D backgrounds look stunning, but up close, it really isn't that impressive. I am not a PS3 fanboy, listen to me MGS4 was a rehashed Metal Gear Title, great for the fans, but no one else. I think Resistance 2 looks underwhelming. PS3 has a slight shortage of RPG's at the moment. Ia m not a fanboy, but face the facts, these are bullshots, and they aren't that impressive in the first place. Get Fable 2, that game is worth everyones time. Coop will rock.
lolz, can'tz believes you actually think they're real shotz, and tehy stul look outdateds.
Oh I feel Sorry for you ps3 guys , there is no single game is even close to this graphics Quality not Even Killzone 2, maybe the graphics of killzone 2 trailer in 05 yes , but lastly the PS3 shows that this graphics cant be handled by the PS3 system, so you know in deep of ur self's that this is a superior graphics but ur Envious let you to disagree with @Jenzo.
not a patch on games like Uncharted which has smooth, natural lighting, superb shadows, a rich color palette, and much higher polygon counts for characters and environments, not to mention, incredible textures on virtually all surfaces. http://i5.photobucket.com/a... What's more, the lighting and shadows are not impressive as it gets the usual stepped lighting of the Unreal engine. Not a smooth transition in sight and there is the usual lighting and shadow errors that come from taking those short-cuts. This isn't even the most technically advanced game on the Xbox360. What we're witnessing is the magic of great art direction where visual pop comes from the high contrast, monochromatic style with selective use of high resolution textures that tricks the eye into thinking there's more detail than there really is. Just to be clear, the aforementioned technical short-comings of these graphics have nothing to do with the 360 hardware but are a result of the Unreal Engine.
I am VERY impressed with the flame/smoke effects, and we all know the lighting engine is great. I will say, however, that without the glare coming from the bump-mapping, it's surprising to see such a modest poly-count on some of the models.
bullshots for sure.
@ ^^^^ Denial for sure.
I don't think so man, I mean I'm sure they were touched up, but what game doesn't touch up their screen shots? KZ2 was called on it before, and they admitted the did some photoshop work on them.
if you ever see a screenshot with absolutely no jaggies whatsoever like these then its a bullshot.
Gears 2 is running at 720p and a game at that rez without jaggies is definitely being BULLSHOTTED By the way Uncharted easily tops this http://www.neogaf.com/forum... @perjoss Gears 2 shots are all Bullshots with like 16x AA EPIC did the same with UT3 , GEARS 1 and GEARS 2 Gears 1 had jaggies. Nope x360 cant do FSAA by default when it comes to a heavy computational games like Gears
lots of 360 games have FSAA, there are no jaggies in the first GoW. I think i read somewhere that the machine does FSAA by default, like x2 or something, but I could be wrong.
You are wrong. The UE3 engine doesn't do AA. It just doesn't.
Sorry to break it to you guys but these are indeed bullshots. Unreal Engine 3 only does AA in DirectX 10.
but even as bull-shots they aren't technically impressive. Still, the lighting and shadows are very basic and even bull-shots can't hide that. The 360 hardware is certainly capable of more advanced graphics than this. As far as Uncharted, that's not really a fair comparison since that's on stronger hardware. It makes more sense to compare it to other games on the 360, no?
looking sweet, the soul reason for me having the 360 edit: oh look a disagree
This is the reason my 360 is still standing next to my PS3. Damn I loved the first one.
Well yeah, a disagree. I disagreed because I don't have a 360, and if I did, this game wouldn't be the soul of it. Am I not entitled to my opinion of what my hypothetical console's soul would be? By the way, it would be Fable 2 for me, barring disappointment like Fable 1 (I 100%ed that game in NO time, with 0 effort D':)
you deliberately being a moron mfw... he spelled the word sole wrong but you can get from the context what he meant and you can't disagree with that as that was the reason he bought a 360 unless you know his shopping habits better than him. And if you think a console has a soul you need help or maybe sony told you the ps3 has one and you believed them. Again you're deliberately being awkward.
WTF is wrong with N4G? Always passing duplicate stories lately. These screenshots are OLD! They are from E3. :S
Just awsome graphical powerhouse of a game only possible on xbox360
The semi awesome power brought to you by the Unreal Engine 3. Possible on both the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. :D
This looks like HDR of Gears1 SS... Unreal Engine III = old
Uncharted and MGS4 already have better graphic . you failed. There is no or 1 enemy on the pictures.Alone in the game..
Resistance 2 just RAPED Bores of war 2! http://gamersyde.com/pop_im... http://gamersyde.com/pop_im... Graphics - Resistance wins, ENOUGH SAID. Gore - Resistance wins, Slicer gameplay. OWNED Physics - Resistance wins, Unreal 3 doesnt know what physics mean. Scale - Resistance wins, 300 feet bosses, giant octopus boss and more! SMOKED. Multi player - Resistance wins. I hear Cliffy really pushed the 360 this time around. A whoppin 5 v 5 GUYS! Poor Resistance only got 30v30! OWNED Coop - Resistance wins, 8 player COOP. OWNED. SMOKED. Damn, not even a fight! OWNED!
get a life and stop being a muslim. your are ruining this world for everyone. allah is a fake c0ck sucker
Only possible on 360? So I won't have the pleasure of playing this on PC? Aww shucks...
PS3 is more powerful, also, UT3 is on the ps3. It uses the same engine as gears. So its possible on the ps3. Your fuking stupid.
do u realize u r offending 1.6 billion muslim by wat u said?? ur m0m is fake u didnt know that?? stupid little brain washed kid!
jews are more guilty of ruining this world. Come on, tell me you're one. Keep offending, I'd like to find out where you live and have the pleasure to kick your as$. Bastard. BTW, I'm christian.
completely true. Israel will cause the next world war. and I'm not Muslim.
you guys really need to take you sticks out of your ass and stop showing pp you care so much, lol. Go play video games.
ok the game does look good but are you kidding me? only on the 360? Like they couldnt make this game like 50 times better on the PC? gimme a break ,its just the unreal 3 engine its nothing new.
What's with the color palette? Purple-ish-pink filter? /poG
Emergence Day Redux '08!!
Hmm, At the moment 3 people disagree that you can't wait for this game. it appears you can wait for it... or the defence force are back.
haha that was funny,bubbles for you @6 don't worry I gave agree and a bubble
Are from this months game informer and yes they are from E3 to but thats why there are posted as new. To CrippleH these arnt bullshots lol watch the e3 game demo and you'll see. Why is it that fanboys always shout bullshots for games on the consoles they least like and think the shots on the console they love are always true and great lol.
Those are indeed bullshots. Why is there so many AA? not even 4xAA look that crisp.
Man those are insane, it's one reason for me to go out and buy a 360.
If you feel you only have one reason to own a console then its safe to say you shouldn't get it. I bought my 360 for a number of reasons, make sure you do the same.
pp get a life its running on the unreal engine 3 which the ps3 can do so you fail. looks good though seems like they flattened the color pallet for better lighting.
This looks dull like the first
nice tattoo you jackass. i like the poop on your upper lip too. ARF ARF. GANGSTA SON!
Teh sad ting is he wishz he had that tat, sad face :(.
This looks awesome, but I hope the game play is not as linear as the first one.
The first one on my PC plays so dull - played once and never played again...
Wrong gears of war 2 is running on a optimized engine 3.5 specially made for gears of war 2 and also unreal tournament 3 looks better on xbox360 than ps3 which is a fact
