The Best Lookin' Multiplats of this Generation (resumeplay)

ResumePlay writes: "Let's take a look at some of the more visually impressive multiplatform titles, shall we? It could be said that single platform development is relatively easy – building a single game for a single console allows developers to cater to the strengths and weaknesses of that platform. But when a developer manages to milk as much as it conceivably can from both consoles, and stay within a hairs length of each other, this is undoubtedly worthy of a closer look. Or in this case, worthy of making onto this six game list." (Culture)

The Best Lookin' Multiplats of this Generation
Pity they are all gimped to sh!t
mal_tez92  +   2307d ago
Batman, Cod4 and Resident Evil 5 are he three best
Mirror's Edge had very bad aliasing, but had a cool style that reminded me of Portal.
MostUnfurrowed  +   2307d ago
I spy inane fanboyisms spewing up all over this comments board, failing to recognise that it's an article praising multi-plat games.

Sunny_D  +   2307d ago
We can't have the best looking games this generation, because then xbots would be butthurt that their games don't even hit the top 10. Bu bu bu the multiplat games!
kaveti6616  +   2306d ago
SunnyD, I find it ironic that a Sony fanboy such as yourself would even talk about fanboys. Do you realize how hypocritical you sound? Do you think that it's okay because "they started it first?"

my personal pic...
batman arkham asylum. That game not only looks good but is a damn fine one to play.
mau64  +   2307d ago
I agree with you to an extent, I'm just not a huge fan of the glossy look it puts over everything
NecrumSlavery  +   2307d ago
That's cause the unreal engine makes everything look wet.

Bioshock was like that too. Never the less Arkham is a brilliant game
Ziriux  +   2307d ago
Oh def. CoD4, one of the best looking games that looked good on both 360 and PS3.
mrv321  +   2307d ago
Nope... COD 4 looked pretty average for the time... nothing special, personal I found Warhawk better looking.
Halo3 MLG Pro  +   2307d ago
LMAO. Are you seriously telling us that you thought Warhawk was better looking than COD4???? To funny.
Sunny_D  +   2307d ago
Warhawk exclusively for the Ps3. Title: Best looking Multiplatform games.
ambientFLIER  +   2307d ago
Warhawk better looking that COD4? HAHAHAHA. That's some strong stuff you've got there. Why don't you go replay the ship mission or the ghillie suit mission and tell me how average they look...

Why don't wee see what IGN thought about the graphics.

"10 Graphics
From top to bottom, one of the best-looking console games around."

i honestly think that apart from the warhawk models themselves, that game looked like it was a ps2 port. big stages but ugly low poly textures. Bf2 looked way better.
thebudgetgamer  +   2307d ago
all those games
were well made. the devs did great work making them shine on each platform.

Megaton  +   2307d ago
Needs moar Dead Space.
kaveti6616  +   2306d ago
Dead Space looks great in most areas, but did you notice the blocky shadows when you looked on the ground? Terrible.
Lou Ferrigno  +   2307d ago
COD4 was only awesome for one thing.. 60FPS and the perks were allright.
but outside that,COD4 did not do anything that "AMAZING" or rediefining.
ok game for a few months.

Good list imo as well.
i def would add Batman AA to the list some how tho,and both Dead Space and Fight Night Round 4 as well.
Poopface the 2nd  +   2307d ago
good list
( also think dead space deserves a spot, for not only being pretty but an awesome game.

Re 5 has great grafix but some crappy animations for the enemies.
mint royale  +   2307d ago
Fight Night Round 4 would be my favorite.
Saaking  +   2307d ago
Only exclusives of the PS3 can shine.
swiftshot93  +   2307d ago
Take out Mirror's Edge and put Dead Space. Then take out UT3 and put Prince of Persia. Also Bioshock deserves a place on this list.

Also if you think CoD4 didnt look amazing at the time of its release, then you must of thought that 95% of games out there look like utter crap. That game still looks awesome to this day.
ambientFLIER  +   2307d ago
+1. Still looks great to me every time I play it.
kraze07  +   2306d ago
Take out UT3 for Prince of Persia? Sorry but I have to disagree with that one.
FwanK  +   2307d ago
Where´s Dead Space?
foxtheory  +   2307d ago
Thank you!
for putting Assassin's Creed on the list! Even if a lot of people didn't like it (me not being one of them), the detail on some of the stuff, like buildings, was awesome.

And I agree with everyone else, too. Dead Space NEEDS to be somewhere on the list. The graphics on that game are even better looking than some exclusive titles!
The GOAT  +   2307d ago
RE5 is easily the best looking multiplat game to date. No question about it.
kaveti6616  +   2306d ago
The environments have almost zero interactive features. I think that's the reason why the game looks as good as it does.
NecrumSlavery  +   2307d ago
Assassin's Creed is purely an Eye Orgasm of pretty. Too bad the game was horribly repetative and quite boring.
Graphics  +   2307d ago
no DMC4, oblivion, or burnout paradise?
albert_275  +   2307d ago
I thought Burnout Paradise would be up there. Almost the only game that looks identically brilliant on both systems.
Relientk77  +   2307d ago
wow I am shocked but

I actually agree with the list

kudos to them

they actually kno what they're doing
monkey nuts  +   2306d ago
The Darkness. Anyone remember it? Great looking multiplat at the time imo and one of only a few multis that supported 1080p on the ps3.

I agree with the list above. Sonic Unleashed is also a pretty good looking game in itself. Its not photo-realistic of course, but the visual quality is quite underrated, imo.

Soul Calibur was also impressive.
