looking good looking damn good
...so I agree it does look damn good. Now if only I knew more about the single player game. That's where I will be monkey stomping locust to the tune of James Browns "The Big Payback". NINJAR EDIT: True these aren't the best pictures but the game does look good. That is if you can objectively just look at this game and NOT compare it to anything else.
But wtf, where is all the color? what is this killzone 2?
why the hell so many replies? the screenshots are too small to judge
...If The second killzone lives up to the first one in terms of various environments, you'll have the widest range of levels in a console game this gen: The first Killzone had it's cities, yes, but it also had snow, swamps, offices, mountain ranges, jungles, a beach, and even went into outer space. If Killzone2 even reaches the same amount of environments as the first one and keeps the same quality throughout as we've seen from the footage of Killzone 2, this game will only have one game that could top it: Crysis... not counting gameplay, as I don't know which would beat which. Now, about Gears 2 vs Resistance 2; I don't care. I like the way both of them look. I'm not insecure. I think both will be excellent and I hope whichever some guys get that they enjoy.
Screenies are too small. I've seen much better screenshot of Gears 2. It's gonna be head to head between Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2 in graphics and shooter awards.
The game lacks color.

Only on xbox will such low res textures and repetitive-underwhelming gameplay exist
Not the xbug 3rd60 saviour after all. Resistance 2 will destroy this in every single way watch it sell millions more, score AAAA status on most websites and leaving gears of war 1.5 in the dust.
Ummmmm... why are they showing screeshots from the first one? oh wait!
Wait:the screens are from gears of war TWO????? holy shhhh,what happened to the game,it looks like cow manure now
can't really take it seriously. this game has potential though.
ANUS edit: at Nona im not enemy you idiot. im just some nigger that is sick of all the PS3 trolls. I have to take it to the next level.
Giantenemycrab is also 'F MY AHOLE',Mods you better ban both his accounts 'cause there kids that visit this website. [email protected]/F' My A'hole: You're obviously an angry xbot,cause now you're being a racist :)
........these are REAL .these are real shots . http://www.1up.com/media/03... . http://www.1up.com/media/03...
This site is really Fvcked up MOD you need to do something
I feel sorry for Droids, one good game and last place has to suck...:)
Hahaha this is the hyped Gays at war 1.5. An inferior piece of trash, thats totally OWNED by Resistance 2 a few days ago. When we said, Resistance 2 absolutely MURDERS gays at war, them shiatty xbots didnt want to believe it. But the facts are the reality. And they dont look favorable. Hahaha, what a piece of trash. Hahaha IT SUCKS TO BE AN XBOT, PEOPLE!
Is this the game that's supposed to save the xbox? Because if it is,then I don't know what to say....I really don't,it looks worse than Metroid Prime 3.
Using your dupe fake accounts to boost your bubbles as well huh? You joined 4 hours ago as of this post and have done nothing but troll and now have more bubbles than people who actually contribute to the site. You cheat just like your fellow fisheads do with sales numbers, pending news approvals, stats, online votes, polls, etc. You know you are on the losing team so you continue to resort to cheating! hahahahahahaha what a flop! Oh that's right you are Flop's R Us.
((hey giantenemycrab you are very desperate why did you create the 'F**** MY A**HOLE' account))
I wonder why it seems like the only color that Queers of War 2 has is brown.. :)
Scratch that;It looks worse than Metroid Prime 2
These were just taken from one of the video logs.
I can't believe it,but after seeing that last screenshot that Tanod posted,I have to change my statement again; It looks worse than Metroid Prime 1.
gota say, i thought Gears2 graphics were better than resistance2 but comparing these to the latest build of R2, it doesnt look as good, and that has 60 player multiplayer to handle.
http://www.1up.com/media/03... vs http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... vs http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... vs http://www.1up.com/media/03... The graphical difference is that of comparing a pretty good looking game with a game that looks like mid range CGI at times. I find it funny this thread is more about R2 than GOW 2, trying to spam this thread with PS3 fan jibberish over some low quality screen grabs from a low quality vid-doc showing multi player footage lol.
you used 1 image for Resistance 2 that was single player campaign, the rest are seperate 8 player co-op campaign and multiplayer, so ofcourse its not going to look as good as single player. Heres some in-game screens of R2 SINGLE PLAYER campaign: http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03...
You can't explore the backdrop in Gears. You can just look at it while you fight 3 guys on a small map. Which all the gameplay videos show and prove, unlike R2 where you walk miles. But small combat is what Gears2 is all about. 5vs5 http://www.1up.com/media/03... Is a bullshot Unreal Engine doesn't have radiosity. That entire magazine spread that the image is from was bullshots confirmed by epic. Like the one for Gears1. http://scr3.golem.de/screen... So thats hilarious in its own right. I think you just managed to put your entire leg in your mouth. Looking forward to your stealth edit. Im laughing my ass off over here at you trying to hype up the Multiplat Unreal Engine. Heres the Gears2 you will be playing. http://www.1up.com/media/03... phenomenal
You're not helping yourself. http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03...
lol not really, how does that: http://www.1up.com/media/03... look better than these HUGE enemies: http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://uk.gamespot.com/page...
Frontlines: Fuel of War -- 50 player MP battles -- TODAY. Huxley -- 120 player MP battles -- 2009. Resistance is a cheap knock off of Gears of War -- it isnt even comparable. And, just chucking "big MP battles" into the MP isnt even relevant. Want big Multiplayer? Get Frontlines, it is *very* good. Or, pay attention to the Huxley development, the MMOFPS ideas they have going is very compelling.
"Resistance is a cheap knock off of Gears of War -- it isnt even comparable." When comparing graphics they definitely ARE comparable, and how can it be a "cheap knock off" when it's a completely different kind of game?
is between R2 and Gears 2 in terms of graphics is not as big as was the first time around. Gears 2 from the looks of it only had a small graphical boost while R2 is much much better than the first. In terms of detail and texture i still give Gears the clear lead but overall graphically its not night and day as the first ones were. Where R2 will shine like the first is Gameplay and scale. R2 overall will be leaps and bounds much better than the first which is why i believe it will be a better game overall than Gears 2 which will basically an extension of Gears 1.
LOL I was just going to mention that, if he wants to compare different genres then I was going to mention Huxley which does much more than any game that will be launching in 2009. http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.1up.com/media/02... http://www.huxleygame.com/i... In this game you can play in 1st and 3rd person and you can pan the camera out and look at yourself just incase if you were wondering what you're looking at possibly not believing your eyes(old pics too). I won't bother with the masive scale battles and the vehicle and weapon lineups. Thought I would bring this up sence everybody is comparing games from different genre's that have nothing to do with GOW2. http://www.huxleygame.com/i... http://www.huxleygame.com/i... http://www.huxleygame.com/i... http://www.huxleygame.com/i... http://www.huxleygame.com/i... Sence all that matters is how pretty a huge game with massive amounts of players in multi player, I though I would talk about a completly different game not even in the same genre as GOW2. lol Resistance what/Who? who will care about it in JAN/FEB lol http://www.huxleygame.com/i...
You're not helping yourself. lol....whitto is officially blind...lmao. Bring on the bullshots whitto.lol Edit: You started it...you played POG's game and you lost. Take it like a boy.
Wait beyond. Post Alan Wake too
omg lol, i only said what i thought then every1 comes on and spams all these screens, saying im worng and blind an everythin. I mention R2 in this thread since on every other single R2 thread there are people saying the R2 graphics are crap etc etc Gears will own etc, just thought id mention that with the latest screens, R2 graphics are not crap and do not get owned by these screens of Gears2. Didnt say anything about Gears graphics being crap at all, people need to stop being so worked up over 1 comment i made about my opinion. . . . And anyway, Killzone2 owns them all! lol http://www.gamersyde.com/po...
I like how POG tries to prove a point. But actually did nothing but proved Resistance 2's graphics are just as good. Especially the second pic lol And stop posting bullshots, you can tell which ones they are. But all in all, cant deny it. Gears of War 2 is looking awesome. But as soon as I beat the single player, goodbye Gears. Hello Resistance 2 multiplayer.
gears of war 2 pwns you all night long and all day long droid. are you really tihs much of a troll. congrates you really are the number 1 failflop
lol I tricked pp ^ and he sent me a message saying he "wishes he could play ps3 games on xbox",he's using the "sit down droid" account now to hide his embarrassment.
((haha pp got fooled and admitted he wants ps3 games))
Man, I'm a little underwhelmed by these... Does anyone else think Uncharted still has better graphics, after nearly a year on the market, than the GEOW engine? The look good, don't get me wrong, but they're just not mind blowing. I think, in all honesty, the xbox 360 is showing its age in hardware. Maybe just a little. It can still hold its own on cross platform games, due to engine optomisation, but when it comes to exclusives; the ps3 is really pulling away from the pack here.
Shaders Animation Water Lighting And whatever else I'm forgetting. Comparing it to an Unreal Engine title is kinda laughable. Considering the limitations of the unreal engine. It couldn't render a frame with a high res model to save its ever loving life. Check out how 'detailed' the base models are before normal maps with the Unreal Engine. For 2008 standards, no idea why they are still using the 800 triangle limit for the models. Its the reason all the 'details' stretch since they aren't really there. They are all just added with normal maps. Unlike Uncharted where normal maps are just added for wrinkles, not entire objects on the character. Nathan's bullets/belt/buttons are all modeled. With enemies of equal details and 15+ on screen at once. http://xbox360media.ign.com... Now compare that to Nathan Drake. Then add the Scale of Uncharted. Then Add in the Post Processing that the Unreal Engine still can't manage to do outside of Motion blur. And it can't even do individual object motion blur. In 2005, before any other games were out. The Unreal Engine was good as far as visuals go. But now, its a ridiculous theory to think an engine that lacks in so many areas that are found in MGS4/Crysis/Uncharted can compete. Its a good choice for multiplatform development. The documentation out there and the tools are great.
Ye, uncharted looks so good, but it never had to run multiplayer, so we dont know how good it still would have looked. Im just really suprised that even with R2 huge online, there isnt a big difference in graphical decline between single player + multiplayer. Sum R2 Screens: http://www.1up.com/do/slide... http://www.1up.com/do/slide... http://www.1up.com/do/slide...
guess its because your down to two bubbles huh silly, i love all games...but two years or so since the 1st gears you'd expect a huge leap in graphics and if people are honest its just not there,its NOT 360s fault,unreal 3 engine is just maxed out,gears 2 looks ok its more of the same which is no bad thing,gears1 blew my socks off and as for uncharted graphics,silogon to me it hasnt been bettered not even by mgs4 EDIT: whats up with people who just run around pressing disagrees to any comment why cant people debate intelligently? if you disagree with me atleast have the balls to say why n4g used to be really good, fanboys have ruined this site
its a shame it took you so long to realize this silogon. maybe now that youve passed step 1 (denial) you can begin to heal :) this is the first time ive ever agreed with you
No these shots are not mind blowing but let's just wait and see some game play in motion at tgs before we start making I told you so comparisons. Uncharted looked like crap to me before it was released so I'm willing to bet there saving the good stuff for last.
...Uncharted out there that's just wrong. It's still one of the most beautiful games around and is always extremely fun to play. I get the same feeling every time I boot it up and that's a good thing. Was the first PS3 game for me so that's also why for me it's wrong to mention that game, I'm terribly biased towards it. Likewise to compare Uncharted screens to Gears 2 screens is just not fair when just looking at the graphics in GeoW2. Even though I think Uncharted looks better and is one of the BEST looking games to this day. And lastly even if the graphics aren't jaw droppingly improved in GeoW2 over GeoW1, it still doesn't look bad.
I made the mistake of playing uncharted recently, just after I'd been playing Crysis Warhead on enthusiast. I noticed: Low-poly foliage Simple shaders Linearity Aliasing galore Low resolution (compared to PC) Lots of colour Great art style High-poly characters Great animation (some of the anim blending looks a bit odd though) Cutscenes look fantastic, they're using in-game assets Shadows are great Post-processing effects look great, are set just right (not too much bloom) That sunset behind the waterfall and the U-boat is to die for So I'm not entirely sure uncharted's graphics are THE best, I think MGS4's were better. But I've also been playing Wipeout HD and I can tell you it's got the best graphics on any game ever, in terms of style, resolution, smoothness, framerate, and just general gorgeousness.
what i have been saying for a long time. People Should Compare Gears to Uncharted as they are both TPS. Even K2 is a FPS.
While I think that Flops "R" Us is a complete ass wipe, I do agree with the very low textures. Sorry, but this game looks worse than the first one, which was a master piece.
I like how you make an assumption about how good a game's graphics is from a screencap off a SD video, the game runs in 720p most likely, hopefully not gimped like every other console game res wise. Wait till IGN take some screenshots before you kill your opinions credability with dumb posts like that. Resistance 2 doesn't look much better, and that's when they filter the HD picture.
Thank you Shroomy for the common sense. The $ony fishheads are working overtime talking smack just like before RFOM, like all their judgement day talk, 360 is dead, etc. All the while none of it coming true and the PS3 still getting a face full of taint from MS and Ninty. Having to smell ass all day long from the back of the bus has them mental as always. (that was not directed at you Digger)
At least these seem to be real and not bullshots.
whats with all the fog its hinders the draw distance. looks good
"Looks boring, generic, washed out, bad framerates, horrible textures, same old weak AI. Not the xbug 3rd60 saviour after all. Resistance 2 will destroy this in every single way watch it sell millions more, score AAAA status on most websites and leaving gears of war 1.5 in the dust." Resistance 2>>>>>Gears of war 2 I know it,you know it,xbots know it;they just dont show it.
Screens look great, although we all know it looks much better in motion. Given everything we have been shown, I think it's going to be a strong contender for GOTY. It just improves so much on the first game in all areas. I look forward to some meat shield action!
The one thing you don't get with these shots of course is the superior texture quality 360 has.These look more like what Gears might look like on PS3 PS3 has more potential and just general grunt i think but for me texture quality is rather more important - in any case it's not as if 360 struggles with overall polygon pushing power when you see stuff like this frankly The average joe doesn't take a blind bit of notice of tech - Gears looks as good as it gets so no ammount of PS3 down the road potential is going to persuade potential PS3 and 360 buyers It's going to be interesting just how much of a curb stomp Gears delivers to R2 edit: onslaught : yes i agree with how things can certainly be improved visually but it's mostly only us here on forums like this that know any better
Funniest thing i've read all day. "It's going to be interesting just how much of a curb stomp Gears delivers to R2" The ONLY advantage gears had over R1 was its graphics Now the graphics are neck and neck,you think its going to curb stomp it with 5vs5 MP?
Curb stomp? Open Zone is that way -----> Different engines. Different systems. Different art design. Different gameplay style. Different design focus. I like how people focus SO MUCH on JUST texture quality? Is it important? Yes. But damn, animation, particle effects, draw distance, environment size, lighting all factor in to visuals. Both are great games with different art styles. Let's compare them because they release around the same time! Yay! /sarcasm As for "Gears looks as good as it gets" I have to disagree, both in tech and in art style. I hate the art style. Still no color. And as for just tech pushing? GTA pushed animation, Uncharted and MGS pushed the full visual package. Gears was great for its time, but even UT3 quickly surpassed it. Pass the torch already.
And ps3 titles use higher resolution uncompressed images. Here is the reality: http://www.1up.com/media?id... http://www.1up.com/media?id... http://www.1up.com/media?id... it looks great from far away though.
Blademask, the U3 engine DOES have nice texture/normal mapping abilities. No denying that. However, my personal beef with it is that it gives EVERYTHING a plastic, shiny look due to a lack of difference in the specular maps. Also, up close the texture quality holds up, but I noticed in Gears 1 that 90% of the materials had the same texture at 0 distance.
Because any engine developed around the time/after Hl2/Doom has the ability to create complex SHADER NETWORKS which include normal mapping. That is nothing new or impressive for a game engine to pull off in the year 2008. The Unreal Engine does NOT have any specific flags or features in its shading setups that separate it from any other engine when it comes to texture resolution, and in most cases the images used will be\are compressed. Saying the Unreal Engine has nice textures/normal mapping abilities is like saying the Source engine has a cool ability to have a SPOTLIGHT in the engine. Its a very good versatile engine to be used when you don't want to make one from scratch. However developers DO make their own engines, and those products are superior to UnrealEngine 100%. If they weren't there would be no point in investing the money into the engine. Naughty Dog/KojimaPro/Crytek have all invested in great new engines that bring new technology to the table that the Unreal Engine just have. Its like acting as if a stock car is quicker than a tuned version, or a custom car made specifically for racing. Epic has nothing to redeem itself when it comes to visuals outside the old title of 'graphics king' when there was no competition. As soon as there was, the Unreal Engine suddenly looked out-dated.
"It's going to be interesting just how much of a curb stomp Gears delivers to R2" The ONLY advantage gears had over R1 was its graphics" Wow, invent reality much? You're totally in a dream world. It wasnt just graphics. THAT is why Gears of War won a PILE of awards. Resistance? not so much. Sales? Yeah, Gears had fantastic sales. And legions of fans. Resistance didnt and doesnt hold a candle to Gears of War. And, with the sequals, it is clear to all but the most dillusional zealots, that Gears of War 2 is going to --again-- be an epic victory without peer.
