sorry Heavy Rain/Crysis/God of War 3 and Uncharted http://www.gamikaze.pl/Play... http://www.killzoneunit.com... http://www.gamikaze.pl/Reso... http://www.gamikaze.pl/Reso... I cant believe my eyes
I disagree. Heavy Rain looks better to me and we haven't even seen God of War 3 yet but does everything have to turn into a war? They're all PS3 exclusive (not Crysis of course) anyway so does it really matter?
Damn colourful!!! Beauitful. Defitnely one of the best artistic directions this generation. Nay-sayers don't know what an art direction is.
different art designs Both KZ2 and Heavy Rain mean different graphics
I dont know man but definitely uncharted, KZ2, HR and Crysis are the best looking games ever . After seeing these screenshots i feel KZ2 has snatched the crown for best graphics from HR HR is in the pre pre pre alpha state and it looks unmatchable. we will see what happens after seeing the final builds of both Kz2 and HR @XAVIER thanks man finally someone who realizes that Crysis' trcikery lies just with FOLIAGE . However KZ2 easily tops in all other areas
http://i37.tinypic.com/10xu... http://i35.tinypic.com/15hh... http://i33.tinypic.com/9url... http://i33.tinypic.com/2zs0... http://i37.tinypic.com/spu9... http://i35.tinypic.com/e7dq... Maybe because Crysis ended up being such a mediocre game but after playing it on a 3500 dollar PC it doesn't come close to what we are seeing here. Lighting Destruction Effects Animation Enemy reaction to shots and explosions The gun modeling, action, and rendering The post processing effects like the way they make it feel like a wind storm with screen blur effects And the main thing about Killzone 2 is it looks real and not everything covered in shiny and bumpy plastic that everyone has grown to hate in Unreal Engine games.
Not really, I just finished playing Crysis with my new GTX 280, and all I can say is blah to the bland color, empty land scape, and damn low resolution textures of Killzone. Sure, it's decently good looking for a console game, but no where near the best looking game of all time. Heavy rain looks MUCH better then Killzone 2 (judging by these screens) by FAR. Please, please put all bullshit aside -_-. @ below: No, in crysis the indoor scenes look realistic as hell, the textures are crisp, even in 1920x1200, and the player model faces are amazing. You really can't say the same thing about killzone, the big picture looks pretty, but the details are sort of ugly. Also, you're absolutely correct, that player model in the screenshots looks exactly like they're painted on.
Crysis, like FarCry have been milking the cover everything in foilage trick. But as soon as the you get indors or out in the open it looks like just another average graphics engine. The Crysis guys also love to put out 'engine demos' which have nothing to do with the actual game graphics. The only way someone could honestly claim they thought actual Crysis in game graphics looked better than what we are seeing here is if they like scanned images for materials vs the more hand painted style in Killzone 2.
Crysis looked amazing, if you could run it high-res at Very High settings. The lighting was great, the foliage was great, the guns looked great, the vehicles, the water, the textures, etc. Everything except the faces(arguable here) in Crysis was STUNNING. That being said, you needed to sell your soul to get a computer that could run it. Killzone 2 sets the bar for best console graphics, and it has a much better art style than Crysis, but from a technical standpoint, nothing that is out right now or coming out in the next few months can touch Crysis. EDIT:@Moses, Heavy Rain and Killzone graphics-wise isn't comparable. Heavy Rain has very detailed character models and good environments, but it doesn't have a bunch of soldiers and tanks running around blowing up everything in sight(that would be quite a sight actually...Madison the Mercenary)
but the lighting is just amazing and you cant deny that.
Thats true, a comp will always out do a console graphics wise. But I would rather a console where I can enjoy some primo fighting games aswell.
Of Course, I love my N64 console as well, but the claims that people make about Killzone 2 are so blown out of proportion it's funny. Edit: There you go postedup, in my opinion, GT5 looks much much better then KZ2, it's photo realistic AND 1920x1080, doesn't get much better then that.
i disagree with all of you XD, only for fun though! except for crysis... cause crysis is a damn good looking game, just not my type of game though. seizure warning! http://www.autoblog.com/pho... http://www.autoblog.com/pho... http://www.autoblog.com/pho... http://www.autoblog.com/pho...
Awesome pictures man. I think GT5:P has the best lighting out of any game I've ever played. Say what you want about the Aliasing issues on some cars or other small details, Polyphony Digital have absolutely nailed it when it comes to lighting and reflections.
Crysis wins hands down for the best visuals on any platform. Killzone 2 wins as best graphics/animation for any CONSOLE. For Christ sake, look at the first animated gif Xavier_X posted. Amazing. http://i37.tinypic.com/10xu...
STOP GIVING UNCHARTED UNDESERVED CREDIT!!! it's attitudes like that will hold back game development. Uncharted belongs on ps2 or xbox. 4 whole characters models. same boring, repetitive gameplay. lame graphics and presentation. explosions are a joke in the game. environment interaction is non existent sept with the uninspired "platformer" elements which are predictable and hardly a puzzle. i had to choke that game down just to get through it. so lame. killzone will be good though. but i noticed a lot more ps3 fanboys were calling the gears of war 2 screen shots "bullshots" and yet i see very few saying that here. man i hate hypocrites.
uncharted has the best console graphics till this date, that game is unbelievably awesome dog you dont know what you are talking about. it deserves credit for being a really awesome, fun and intence game. judging by your past comments you just hate on the ps3 plain and simple and prefer the 360, thats ok man but your comment belongs in the open zone and is probably why you only have 2 bubbles(-_-). game on bro.
http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... here gameplay from jillzone 2 long whole mission :) better things than crysis: -Best lightning EVER (even Crysis can't compare, look at devs interviews) -best animation of death (ragdoll+sickanimation) -i thinkbetter phisic engine than Crysis more realistic.(13:45 look at heelgast way as he falling from wallfence) - much better fog and smoke (look at 12:21 also awasome phisic in this :) ) -Very solid FPS :D (Crysis with two GTX280 in SLI 4GB ram and quad core at Very high in 720p works about 40FPS AVG with drop downs, shi**y optymalisation)
agreed. Uncharted was a horrible experience. Way over rated.
approving these screens as they are not bullshots compared to those Gears 2 screens posted earlier!
It is amazing when you realize that actual Killzone 2 gameplay, even the 32 player multiplayer graphics look far beyond the silly fake marketshots Epic loves to try to pretend are real. I don't think I've ever seen a console generation where a system like the PS3 has such a massive graphical power advantage over the weaker system with the 360. I remember reading some dimwit who everyone said was a developer on beyond3d 'proving' graphics like these would never be possible until the PS4 arrived years from now.
well when gears of war 2 has sold 6 million copies and killzone struggles to move 2 mil, keep talking. and the fact that you have so many bubbles is a testimony to how many ps3 fanboys plague N4G. and that includes the moderators.
You really need to research into what bullshots are before making accusations of my blatant bias! Here are some facts about me ... 1. I own a 360 2. Gears is my most played game on all three systems I have 3. I HATE BULLSHOTS! Whether it was Free Radical with those Haze BULLSHOTS or EPIC with the UT3 and Gears 2 BULLSHOTS, I equally loathe them. That is a fact!
the helghast feet in the 3rd picture look really big and wide, but I have to say it is one of the best, if not THE best looking game I have ever seen. @below, heavy rain looks good but I haven't seen enough of it to form an opinion (actually technically we haven't seen any of it yet), where as Killzone2 I have viewed and re-viewed many gameplay videos, and know that it looks good
nothing matches KZ2 except HR
really do this game justice. It needs to be seen in motion to really appreciate it(same with any other game this generation really). That being said, I see lots of colors.
pictures don't do any game justice anymore these days. to tell you the truth.
Agreed. Killzone 2's main strength(from what I can tell) is the stunning effects and animations, more than the poly count and stuff like that. It always looks better when you're actually playing it on your tv though.
gray, blurry, and low poly. you droids better hope this game isn't sh1t like the last one :)
No game on your console will ever match KZ2 graphically or in terms of MP
You pretty much just described gears of war 1 too. :) XBOTS = JEALOUS, BliND, IGNORANT, & BRAIN-WASHED FOOLS. lol
Bots think good graphics just mean everything is shiny like UE3.0 makes them look. Hell even dirt is shiny and looks like slime in an Unreal game. I'm done with that last gen plastic engine. It should only be used on Lego games where it might actually suit it, but strangely hasn't been done to my knowledge. Anyway, its nothing to do with you anyway tool, since you wont be playing it. Go back to playing............damn I keep forgetting. You haven't had a good exclusive since Mass Effect. Play that again since you like "Poppin in" so much. ZING.
In MY opinion gears of war 2 just can't compare to the graphical GENIUS of KILLZONE 2! One thing is for sure, in terms of who has better graphics, halo3 just got KILLZONED!
This game looks beautiful but come on don’t bash the 360 by said is weaker and all that is the best looking game on any platform that doesn’t mean that 360 is a weaker system, is a good system both console have great looking title maybe the PS3 has more that look just stunning but the 360 haves some too. But like I always say is better to have both consoles you get it all.
Computer graphics is not the Special Olympics where 'everyone is a winner'.
HAHA, total OWNAGE... Dumb Xbots comparing Gears1.5 to R2 picture quality! ROFL...try KZ2
KZ2 looks miless better than Gears 2. Oh wait miless better than those Bullshots of Gears 2 too
gears 1 pc> gears 2 xbox
Now this is what you call REAL stunning shots... No make-up like some other developers I won't mention. :)
I know what you mean, Like gears of war 2, where they cover the ground and buildings with grass (or what ever)….so looks nice And by showing screenshots from the PC version and then say it is the 360 version, (just like gears 1)
Why do PC fans hate console gamers??? PC fans should admit that consoles were made 4 years ahead of its time. Whats so hard to admit that some Console games look better than its PC counter parts. Look at Gran turismo 5, it looks better than any PC racing game but PC fanboys will argue and Fight the fact. Look at Killzone 2, Why are PC gamers so mad that its possible for a console to hold a candle to crysis???
These shots do not do this game justice. You need to see this game in ACTION in order to appreciate how amazing it is. Some of the recently released videos do the trick.
To me the screenshots from Killzone 2's Single Player look better than the screenshots of the Multiplayer. Those screenshots looked good, but they didn't really "wow" me as much, but I've been more "wowed" when I saw screenshots like this from the Single Player. Still, I can't wait for Feb. 2009 to come.
that there does not appear to be any shadows cast by the soldiers. Maybe I'm missing something, but these 4 pics don't have them. What's up with that?
one of the prettiest games without a question. beautiful simply beautiful. good to see how far games have gone in terms of technology. now hopefully the gameplay and AI deliver so we have a true AAA on our hands. amazing
Iunno after seeing too much of this game..Im not that hyped for it...Same can be said for Resistance 2 and a lil bit of little big planet... And Motorstorm 2 too me has risen above these games..Iuno why maybe after playing motorstorm for numerous hours..
That 2nd pic is the beezneez!
Everybody who was trashing the Gears 2 screens, is in here having virtual orgasms over the K2 screens....which don't look ANY BETTER. Hell, these are some of the WORST screens that I've seen for this game, to date, and you guys are going on and on about art direction, colors, etc. WTF are you smokin', to make you see all that? All I see, are BLACK (Criterion's last-gen fps) level graphics/textures, with 3 primary colors, and little detail. Carry on with your little circle jerk though...I'd hate to break you up. :o
Is you. Gears 2 is no where close to where KZ2 is.
Oh, I agree....Gears looks BETTER, at least judging by THOSE screens. K2 looks great, and I've got no problem admitting it. But, to say, as cahill did, that it's the "best...ever", is fvcking stupid. And all the drooling over these lackluster screens, only makes you look MORE stupid. Again, BLACK looked better than those screens.
The difference being that these are real while the Gears 2 ones are touched up, to put it nicely. I know it. You know it. Everybody knows it. You just won't say it. But that's ok. I love watching you people set yourselves up just like you did with Gears 1. PS - Glad to see you mention BLACK so much...fing great game for its time.
Killzone 2 still needs LOTS more work. Keep at it GG.
Not one game on the 360 can produce a game like this. http://i37.tinypic.com/10xu...
if you guys do a side by side of the gears screens and these KZ2 screens, you will see that the gears screens do look a tiny bit better, not tons, just a little. The KZ2 screens do look great however.
Sorry you can't compare realtime ingame screenshots of K2 to bullshots of Gears 2. You saying Gears 2 looking only a "bit" better is actually a compliment to K2. Your saying K2 is up to par with Epic's highest end PC running Gears of War 2. :) As of right now we only seen bullshots of GeoW2 so we can't really do a true in-game graphics comparison. But we've seen ingame videos of both games and Killzone 2 is just miles away from GeoW2.
From the screens it doesn't look like a video game.
between PS3 games. I personally like GT5P, been playing it since I got it. Can't wait for the full game to come out. Even bought a G25 from Logitech just for the game;).
I like the textureing work A LOT.
What are u smoking
Yeah looks good, but i would like to see more varity. If the whole game looks like this im gonna get bored pretty quick. Show so different levels please.
Definately the graphics look amazing.. but when i looked at the screenshots i didnt feel it... lets all hope the gameplay is just as good as the graphics..
sorry to offend any $ony tail-waggers as i like to call them...(well no i'm not really sorry) but these measly screens are nothing compared to the might of GEAR OF WAR 2, what am i supposed to tag-along and say they look "great" simply because a corporation in far-away Asia want me to? lets rate SZ2 shall we... i will put "^" for the good and "v" for what sucks about SuckZone 2:Grey Overload high poly models ^ low poly environment v low-res textures v good animations ^ decade old shooting mechanic(run and gun) v GREY!!!!GREY!!!!GREY!!!!GREY! !!! v more GREY!!!!GREY!!!!GREY!!!!GREY!! !!GREY!!!! v cliche story v originality v 2/9 so there you have it, SuckZone 2: Grey Overload officially Sucks...
release information regarding KZ2's polygon count? Curious to know, since most developers usually don't release such information to the public. I also hope you're well aware, that the little ballpark info we do know about Gears (1) and obviously 2 since its a sequel on an updated engine (more of the same), is that it had a fairly low polygon count. (15k for the main character model) But of course, polygon counts don't matter too much when it comes to how good a game looks. Otherwise, the 360 would have an issue because it hasn't matched the numbers known for Lair or Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
your comment was pathetic. On topic KZ2 looks awesome as always.
"On topic KZ2 looks awesome as always." so yours is not? keep collecting those invinsible pay-checks form your leaders and rulers that live far away in Asia... i can see through you, you are as grey as this game...one in a million follower of the PS3 nerd task force.
I love the AA and motion blur it really gives it (along with the perfect animation) an eerie realistic feel. Is 2009 too far away? :( Oh well, Little Big Planet in 2 months!!
