Has Killzone 2 Surpassed the E3 2005 CGI Trailer?

I think there are some parts where the game passes the trailer but that is in the graphics. The animations are not better than the 2005 trailer, lets be serious the cgi animations are just too fluid for any game especially when they slid with the vehicle and shot the rocket.

Edit: Honestly I'm so over with the 2005 e3 trailer, the actual game looks so good it shouldn't even matter. You have to give GG props for coming pretty damn close to That awesome cgi trailer.

best looking console game, although I did note what it was talking about by in comparison to the facial textures being a slightly lower resolution, but it doesn't look bad at all. And Who cares when this game that runs at 1080i native. lol.

In a CGI trailer, you have as much time as you want to tweak each individual animation, make them blend smoothly, add as many dynamic lights as you want, use as advanced techniques such as raytracing/ambient occlusion etc, add as many post-processing effects as you want, and touch up any areas of the video that look slightly dodgy. You can make it look as nice as possible by picking the camera angles and the specific parts of gameplay you want to show.

In the actual game, you don't have any of those luxuries. So visually, it actually surpasses the CGI in some ways in my opinion, but if you recorded actual gameplay it wouldn't look as impressive as the CGI trailer only because you've not been able to call the shots in the same way.

Edit @ iamtehpwn

The game runs at 720p native. There is no such thing as 1080i native; because 1080i has the same number of pixels as 1080p, and so then it would be 1080p native. When the devs said it supported 1080i native, they meant that they had a special mode that actually rendered fewer pixels so it would upscale better to 1080i. Seb clarified this after making his original comment, being asked, and then going back to the tech guys.

Has it surpassed everything else? YES!

SONYFantard2855d ago

It has not only surpassed the E3 Trailer, it has surpassed anything on the 360.. by leaps and beyond!!!

There is no doubt that this is the best looking console game of all time (and even that is an understatement)

that's sick! is that his helmet coming off?

Rhythmattic2855d ago (Edited 2855d ago )

Actually 1080i is a native resolution. its Interlaced, so draws the Odd/even horizontal lines one after the other. As with 1080P . its display progressively... All horizontal lines at once.

Just wanted to clear that up.

EDIT: Maybe off topic , but there is 3 Really interesting Debug Videos , Albeit recorded in 2007.

- The fire in the game looks better than in the trailer (just look how "CG" the fire looks in the trailer).

- The ISA looks pretty close; I'd have to wait until I see hair in the game for my final decision in reference to the trailer: so for now, the trailer is SLIGHTLY better because I wanna see hairdos like Old Snake.

- The Helghast look MUCH better in-game.

- The ground looks about even, with some trade-offs.

- The sky looks MUCH better than the trailer.

- The atmosphere is better in-game.

- From what I seen, smoke looks better in the trailer.

- The particle effects look much better in-game.

- The tech shown in game looks much better than what they shown in the trailer.

- Some animations from what I've seen looks more organic and "better" in the trailer, but the deaths look great to the point of "groundbreaking" in the game.

The poly count? No.

The overall lighting, effects and feel? By miles...

Its kind of a wash for me, which is amazing in itself but yeah this game is going to blow socks off when it comes out.

Saint Sony2855d ago

Saying YES is like saying that 360 is better console. Lies obviously.

Shadow Flare2855d ago (Edited 2855d ago )

Box fanboys and the gaming media thought the actual game couldn't even come close to the trailer. They thought games couldn't look like that this gen. So remember that. (Well, they won't look like that on the 360). Prove me wrong

geda2855d ago

TheExecutive nailed it

Blademask2855d ago (Edited 2855d ago )

No one can argue this.

All THEY can do now is point out that its not pre-rendered CGI.

I'll take the most advanced beautiful looking console game which is impossible on any other console but the PS3(tm), over a render any day.
