Today Pandemic and Electronic Arts released five new screenshots of their new game Mercenaries 2: World in Flames for PLAYSTATION 3.
Average graphics, but its early days and the developers should improve it alot before release.
When the gameworld is a sandbox(GTA-like), every viewable object and building on-screen is manipulatable...destructible, every vehicle is drivable including tanks, helicopters and even civilian cars, every event is driven through true physics and gameplay contains just about right fun factor of pick-up-and-play.......then mere visuals don't get the first priority.
You must have not played the original Mercenaries. It came in Jan. 2005, and by the standards of that time its visuals were downright ugly, especially if compared to what Rockstar had achieved in sandbox titles through GTA series. But just out of the insane amount of features it sold quite well, got some awards and ranked real high !
Last gen graphics!? Jaggies!?
Not impressed at all
But, damn, those textures look trashy. Graphics aren't everything, though. I know i'll still play it.
PS2 game with less jaggies.
maybe it looks better in motion...
Saw these about a month ago, I think it was 1up.com or sumthin, anyways the pics are nothin special.
Looks like it needs some anti-aliasing. Other than that, it looks good enough. As for the programming side of this game, I hope it isn't a sloppy mess.
Will look much better. Multi-platform games usually do on the superior hardware. Just like MERCS 1 looked better on the original XBOX.
This is a PS3 exclusive (the words of Pandemic). Kind of sad that you still claim PS3 is inferior, but I guess it makes you feel better. The graphics have actually improved quite a bit since the last time I saw it (much better lighting) and I'm pretty sure it'll look better once it's released. (they better fix that aliasing) The first Mercenaries was popular for it's gameplay, not it's graphics, but it'd help nonetheless.
I'll wait until I see gameplay videos to make final judgements.
...Yeah, kinda like how AC was an exclusive?
GRAPHICS EQUAL GREAT GAMEPLAY.PLAY IT FIRST,THEN JUDGE IT.SOME OF THE "GAMERS" ON THE SITE ARE JUST GRAPHICS WH*RES.PLAY THE GAME.
It'll prolly look better on the PS3 because it's being developed on the PS3 first. Whichever one it gets ported to looks worse. How are you not getting this???
Believe me! this game is going to ROCK! i played the 1st Merc's and it was freekin good!
These aren't new at all, I've seen them at least a month ago. And why are people criticizing the graphics? I think they look quite impressive, the lighting looks good, and the overall detail seems to be quite impressive. All this, and the game is still in it's early stages.
regardless of the graphics or system(assuming it does come to the 360 sometime).
The first game was one of the best multi-platform games of the last generation.
