Here are some images comparing Killzone 2 to Gears of War.
I give the edge to Gears due to the texture of the enviorments and models plus it also looks alot sharper. Now im sure killzone still has room for improvemens since it wont be due out until 2008. However, that being said Gears is also almost 1 year old and running on an "inferior" machine as Sony Fanboys say. So i guess since PS3 is so "Superior" the question is, Why does Gears look better?
because it focuses on the graphics while killzone throws you everything with more character and unique textures for the surroundings. Not a few enemies on screen. @above, take a very look at the trailer from the moment the character lands you'll find more than 5 character.
Every gameplay trailer of KZ2 that has been shown, has no more than 3 enemies on screen at a time, you can check yourselves. So if that's bad for Gears, it's bad for KZ2 to. It's obvious it still has a way to go to outperform Gears in terms of detail and sharpness. The KZ2 2005 trailer was pretty bright and you could see the environment. Now with the E3 trailer they start of with the flying transport to mimic the trailer, only now it's pitchblack and you can't see sh*t of the environments. Why in the hell would they show this dark gameplay trailer if they could show some nice brighter and more detailed environment. Cause they can't. The darkness is there to cover up the lack of textures and whatnot. A lot off people seem to buy it. Not me.
What video or screenshots are you looking at when refering to all of these characters? Can you send me a link because I have yet to see them myself.
chainsaw Kill-shown 1 . now let guess what shony sandboys will say:PRE PRE PRE ALPHA yes, also by the time Kill-shown comes out Gears wil be around 2 years old built with older technology coast only $9M not $20M and still counting.plus do not forget how bad kill-shown was in the end of that level at E3, most of there time will go to polish that type of crap. after all your BS3 is not as powefull as shony wanted us all to believe,oh..oh.. i just remember:the crap shony said about 1 level take 2gb of data.i think shony need new code makers and designers..hell they need to stop making BS3(BULLSH1T3),or if you want to call it PS3(PU5SYSTATION3), and start releasing games for WII , since they are good at making CG EDIT:@anyprick who says gears do not have many charcter at once in screen...in chapter 1/leve2,3.../you have 3 alies highly detailed with at least 4 enemies also highly detialed,total 8 with fcuking stuning environment not a plane one In the end of the day just remember Gears of War is old news in the 360,Which has much better games coming sooooooooooooon not 2008
There are some areas of the game of GOW that are pretty big with lots of enemies on the screen. I would have to boot it up and see how many to be exact but theirs the three guys you roll with and one of them could be a friend in co-op, then you have the enemies, I am talking in one area where there could be 6 to 8 enemies maybe more in a large court yard setting. So right there you have 9 to 11 bodes on screen. I am not knocking Killzone, I am sure it's going to be great but please, quite with the amount of enemies on screen bit. Why disagree? Killzone not going to be great? Whatever, at this point of time, GOW wins hands down!!!
Hm, the 2nd and 4th GOW pictures arent even in-game pictures, where did they get those shots from? GOW is old news now, and the PC version already looks alot better than the 360 version. As for Killzone, while the game does look pretty good, i am not that impressed by certain textures in it. Will wait til its out and i actually see it, before i pass judgment, but these kinds of comparisons really are just bullsh!t, as they can be easily manipulated. Somebody please put together one of these, where GOW is being compared to Kameo, and i bet you Kameo will look better on many instances than GOW. These comparisons are bullsh!t And to "Lowtax" You wrote: "You fanboy's are making video game's into tools of common bickering and debates more than an entertainment value. God forbid if someone can admit they might actually enjoy BOTH they're treated as though something is wrong with them. All of you sony AND microsoft truckerstop tricks can piss off, stupid crap like this only divides the industry apart." You go boy, amen to that brother. One of the true-est statements on this site
right in the beggining of hte trailer, theres enemies shooting at u and u have like 6 allies(more?) infront of you. watch it.
"gears still better?" <~~~remember that? The answer to that quote is a resounding YES!!!!! . "I TOLD YOU SO" Now here is another quote: "sony devotees have just realized that they payed $600 for an inferior platform"
arent u even ashamed of posting trash. Gears has jaggies and extremely poor textures. KZ2 looks so realistic even at pre -alpaha. mend ur wayy BOTS
just wait a while. Once again, xbots like to forget that their system has been out much longer. Gears looks REALLY good but with the PS3 power and it's games on bluray, it WILL eventually have noticeably better looking games... FACT.
Here we go...
i had to press agree lol
The KZ2 screenshots look like they're taken from a video render of the gameplay rather than a straight feed screenshot. You can tell if you look closely, the blurriness of the image is not in-game, it looks like codec. something worth looking into.
well whadaya know, everything is uber shiny on gears, pretty typical of 360 games
well whaddya know? sh!tty colour palette on killzone2, pretty typical of ps3 games.
can i join in? or is this a 1 on 1?...
It doesn't compare to Gears. Where are the normal maps (or parallax maps)in KZ2? You can see minute details in Gears, but KZ2 lacks detail.
The colors are muted for a reason. The art style of KZ2 is desaturated and gritty. I always thought Gears needed that aswell. It's just way too saturated/colorful for the kind of game it is.
Gears on the mansion level in multiplayer always astounds me when I have not played for over a week( actually any of it does through my HDTV),I have been playing this game for a year now and still am in awe over it's great visuals and of course gameplay, Epic did a great job! Killzone looks good too but Gears at the moment has the upper hand in detail, when you get close to textures in GOW they still look good, I can't see that in Killzone yet.....but things may change for the finished game, who knows, I guess we shall have to wait.
is a pic comparison.
Oh! when it's halo 3 vs killzone everyone loves it but when a comparison of the beast that is Gears of War vs kiddiezone no one wants to see it happen. And whats amazing about gears most if not all the shots are multi-player screens. Yes!! It looks that good even in multi-player.
is that when it's Halo 3 vs Gears of War, it's all "well, they have different art styles!" "Halo 3 is in Beta! Single player will look much better than Gears!" the truth of the matter, is that Killzone 2 is a first person shooter, with a somber, grey visual aesthetic that suits what the developers are attempting to convey perfectly, while Gears of War is more in the vein of movies like Commando and Predator, where you blow the sh*t out of alien scum with a team of badass and ragtag soldiers by your side. both art styles work perfectly with what they are attempting to do. Killzone 2 is going for realistic sci fi war, and Gears of War is going for big, stylizied summer blockbuster sci fi. it's Saving Private Ryan vs Transformers here (both are excellent films, but completely different in their tone, style, and execution). these comparrisons, while interesting to see, ultimately lead to nothing. what i, personally, don't understand, is that Halo 3 hits *TWO years after the 360 launched, and Gears of War hit *ONE year after the 360 launched, and Gears blows Halo 3 away. why? if you really want to compare Gears to anything on the PS3, compare it to Unreal Tournament 3. which uses the same engine, has a very, *VERY similar art style, and, incedentally, looks fantastic on the PS3. comparing two, or even *THREE titles that are vastly different from one another makes no sense at all. while we're at it, lets compare MGS3 with Shadow of the Colossus. and God of War with Bioshock. yeah, lets compare Super Mario Galaxy with Fable 2. makes perfect sense, right? right? hello? is this thing on? this topic is ridiculous.
Hey fig as I read your reply everything was nice until...you contradicted yourself big time.
why is it so plastic and shiny like in gears huaarrrrghh.. make u want to puke a lil
aargghh, crappy textures and sh!tty colour palette on killzone 2. i'm gonna feel sick. Can't see sh!t.
How can anyone say killzone looks better than gears LOL?? those screens are MULTIPLAYER SCREENS and killzone still gets OWNED. Hey Lord Anubis stop the [email protected]!! How many characters did you count on screen during any of the killzone trailers??? because i only saw 2-3 at atime!!! And WTF is a unique textures lol. is that a nice way of saying the textures in killzone crap? The truth is right there sonyfangirls, but i know ya'll still deny it LOL.
Hmg too much fanboy here Lets go GT5 Vs forza anyone U all need to pack it in really Killzone is not 100% yet
The gears pictures are from multiplayer.
GT5 vs PGR4. #6 because most are standing in the rain with better lighting?. GoW2 please!.
yeah...GoW = God of war it came out BEFORE Gears of War find another abbreviation.
there where??? have both games running next to each other when killzone lunches, and check the details moron and see how boring ur 3 hours long game will look, u can take cover behind a sofa on gears for gods sake, the enemies is so stupid that they are lookin for u and they give a damn about the other soldiers normather where u go, and dont even try bucuz I've finished the game (one morning before I got to work, I swear I woke up 6 clock and I was finished with it around 9:30) hahaand that was the 60 bux my buddie spendt on the game, hahaha.. and anyway will talk about this when Killzone lunches and will see if ur Gears Of Whores is still alive.. hahah
Not even the best gears player out there finish this game in 5hrs.... But I do think killzone will have the edge when it comes out, as a matter of fact it better blow gears out of the water
3 hours my ass...atleast if your going to try and bullsh*t us atleast use a number that seems logical...3 hours lol @ Juevani...plus yes enemies who flank and use cover, god their just so darn stupid...and um you find it bad that you can take cover behind a couch? yes less things to hide behind I'm sure would be much better. Nice try. edit:: gil thanks for the laugh lol...bubbles for being funny.
When Killzone "lunches", will it "dinners" a few hours later? The next morning will it "breakfastes"?
This is so dumb, why would you even compare these two games? One of them isn't even OUT yet so you toolbags haven't played it. GEARS OF WAR IS A THIRD PERSON SHOOTER!! This isn't even a fair comparison, Jesus just leave it alone. You fanboy's are making video game's into tools of common bickering and debates more than an entertainment value. God forbid if someone can admit they might actually enjoy BOTH they're treated as though something is wrong with them. All of you sony AND microsoft truckerstop tricks can piss off, stupid crap like this only divides the industry apart.
Who the hell could have disagreed to what Lowtax said?
YEAH! When KZ2 comes out it will be in 4th person and in 4D...
Its a blasphemous article on how Killzone 1.5 is inferior to a year old 360 game.
They will have to do a heck of a lot to top unreal's engine, that's why I'm actually looking forward more to UT3 than kz2
#9 Yep from multi player.... I hope i dont find some of you Sony fans that are in here praising KZ 2 in the KZ2 vs Halo 3 comparison thread.
But not this.
Todays latest edition of apples vs bananas.
killzone 2 is more closer comparison to gears of war than halo. so when the comparison splashes a bucket of water in your face to wake you up from your swoon you say "apples to bananas". gears of war is still king. it would be very hard to topple it in this generation. especially when gears of war 2 is released. a quick reminder that the comparison is made to a 1 year old game. " G E A R S O F W A R 2 : LOCUST CHRONICLES " FALL 2008
Killzone 2 isn't all that. Its not that sharp and Gears 2 will be out @ Christmas 2008. If Gears 1 already beats the living hell out of KZ2, Gears 2 will totally kill it. Nice
so here we go ... Actually, check out what previewers said... "What was most striking was when they turned the post-processing effects off: the level looked almost completely different, as if it were taking place in the mid-afternoon. It's clear that while Guerilla's painterly art style is still very much in effect, it's not just the PS3 that makes the planet of Helghan look different from that of Vecta; the designers have art directed them differently as well. When ter Heide turned the post-processing effects back on, we finally understood the uneasy feeling that the level evoked within us; their careful real-time calibration of the game's light, shadow and color--"we replace the sunnier colors with darker, grittier colors," says ter Heide--combined with the art direction and level design to create the oppressive gloom that they wanted. "The planet is meant to be hostile," said de Jonge. "The desaturated colors suit it." We hope that SCE and Guerrilla eventually release some video footage showing the difference that their post-processing effects make, because you have to see it to believe it. And from what sources in the know tell us, it's a similar special sauce that has Activision and Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare looking similarly hot." http://blog.newsweek.com/bl... TheMART .. you only appear when there are negative news about the ps3 ..
the only shot that looks real for gears is #1 and #3.but definitely gears looks better because of design choice.but when it comes to effects,killzone runs right over gears. smoke effects,lighting effects,blood effects,damage effects,characters onscreen.and it's not even done yet.i'd bet more players online(i believe it's 16,but we'll see.)will happen.we know it will have more vehicles. and the kicker unreal engine 3 on ps3(same will be for 360 version) running better than gears of war on 360.so it comes down if you want shiny unreal look.or gritty style look.but the fact that UT3 is on ps3 kills this comparison.because 360 fanboys said gears and unreal engine 3 was IMPOSSIBLE on ps3.
yeah but the problem is when Killzone is released it will be almost 2 years or atleast 1 and half years older and that is a long time in gaming industry. As for UE 3 doing better on PS3 now, yeah UE 3 has had a year to be optimized on all platforms, so there will be similar improvements for the engine on 360 also. Killzone must be compared with the best UE 3 game coming at the same time as it not Gears.
GEARS OF WAR!!!...duh
killzone 2 is the mascot of ps3 and GeOW of x360. I see no point in comparin these games as it will give rise 2more flamewars nd fanboy stuffz.
Only the killzone 2 images are shown on my screen.
Gears of war looks much better, but I wonder why guerrilla games shown such terrible pictures. They clearly could have taken better pics of the gameplay. Also, why did I get a disagree?
I was just watching my friend play gears yesterday, and it didn't look like that lol. Some of those shots look on par with UT3. Down to few bubbles these days eh mart? seems your supporters are running thin.
it looks like that on my tv. samsung lcd hdtv. i still say wow when i play gears after 8 months of playing it. it is a beautiful game to play and look at. killzone2 appers to have better framerate though. graphics arent anything anyway. Games are all starting to look great this gen its cool. Cant wait to play KZ2
Or if he has one it must not be a very good one, because it looks that good on my 1080i 52" Toshiba, if not better.
looks like that on my hdtv too I can't see why anyone could disagree with the truth..it just does look that good, can't wait for UT3 which the unreal engine has been optimized since GOW.
Gears does look great...no if and or buts about that... But K2 is just grittier...it looks like a warzone...madness...insanity.. . I play Gears...I find it cartoonish.....let the Disagrees pile up on me :P
huh? Gears is way grittier looking than Killzone, all the surfaces are smooth, but it's also "pre pre alpha" according to you guys... :) but Killzone will probably look better in the end.
And already knew that this thread would wreak of stupidity. Please...dont make this a 300 comment monster. Its not neccessary. There is nothing to compare at this moment. But sure enough. Their will be people that will actually use all there bubbles may it be 2 or 10 to defend there platform. People KZ looks very promising. Gears has already done a great job. Let KZ2 come out and do its thing. Your puttin alot of premature stress on this title. I dont know why. So far all I have seen is a very promising FPS in KZ2...nothing more nothing less. Promises are good but they can also be broken. This is a silly comarison. Gears was great...KZ2 shaping up to be great. Leave it at that.
As much as I like xbox 360 over the ps3 they both look like fantastic games. I havent played killzone 2, and neither has anyone else. So its hard to say that Killzone looks way better because its hard to tell whats really going on in the game (thats still unfinished) yet. Gears was a fantastic game with its own unique visual qualities to it as well. There is little point to arguing which looks better or what system is better because in the end we (as gamers) are getting better games. So why fight over something that we could just try to enjoy?

why don't they show us that footage?
I thought KillZone 2 looked better other than that last image.
Unlike Gears of War that can handle only 3 enemies one at a time let alone 6 enemies at one time like Killzone 2 can and besides are you blind both of these games are using two different engines Gears of War is using Unreal Engine 3 and Killzone 2 is using its own Engine and plus the blood in Gears of War is not even close to being realistic as the blood in Killzone 2 are and of course theMart is a dimwit that hes talking crap thinking he knows what he's talking about not even Gears of War 2 would beat Killzone 2 when the comming days, when Killzone 2 comes out and plus if you see both of them in motion Gears of War is crap! and killzone 2 is way better and again it seems that people have for gotten that Guerrilla wanted to make this stage look like hell and of course when the people that was interviewing Guerrila they wanted to know why everything was so dark and they said they wanted to look like that and than they showed the people that is interviewing them turned the post processing and when they showed it everything look all great.
Killzone 2's praise comes from the overall realism presented with months still left for development. KZ2 can create a real war zone.
I'll just enjoy both games thankyou.
KZ2 looks more movie like imho ... Gears with PC-like sharp graphic doesn´t look much better now (KZ2 pics are just pre-pre alpha pics)
