A video comparison of Killzone 2 and Gears Of War. Check it out after the link.
I have never done this before so hopefully it doesn't suck to bad but ya'll asked for it so I did what I could. Learning experience I guess... :)
edit: oh and these are full HD videos I used so if you watch it full screen so it's a lil bigger the quality is still pretty good. Just a heads up.
EDIT:: lol oh yeah don't you guys love the song? lol I have been called out and told off oh I dunna like 5 times by 5 different people for wanting everyone to get along so I figured it fit...
Edit:: I see alot of complaining at me, you guys were asking for it I just took the time to make you happy...gimme a break, don't shoot the messenger! even Sjappie agrees some of you were asking for it...
edit:: @ Manny here is a halo3 vs killzone comparison... http://n4g.com/News-51797.a...
I got to get my fire blanket and fire extinguisher ready for this lolz.
I know, right. You better get your gear too to avoid meltdown lolz.
uhh, i think Halo vs. Killzone would be more appropriate.. this is cool to see tho.. it's close but in motion with the physics, animations, lighting.. destructible environs and all the other good stuff.. KZ wins.. im no retarded fan boy neither.. i conceded that the resistance wasn't as pretty as gears
edit: u dudes, really need to stop swiping my bubbles man, can someone be so gracious as to help me get some back.. i have a 360 too! lolz
BTW it is not a fair comparison.
you are comparing something which uses a large chunk of ps3's power to something that barely uses Unreal engine 3.0 and nothing else.
KZ 2 blows away x360 and all its games
THIS IS GODSEND
when the picture comparison was posted BS3 sandboys said"blablah blah Gears look better in pic but KS2 look better in motion" now take that haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa pre pre PS3, CELL POWER, KEN KATGARI , the next generation do not start until we say so, THE GANT ENEMY CARB, ps fanboys been served big meal of sony crab coast 600$ it seem it was not the best in The menu after all "JACK".hehehe
LONG LIVE BILL GATES, MICROSOFT and xbox360rocks
the game been devolped for at least 2 years and coast todate $20M
it is not pre pre alpha
it is not pre pre alpha
it is not pre pre alpha
if this pre pre alpha than the game will come out
in 2510 and will coast over $100m
what they showed of gears of war in 2005 look like the final product why?????ask ur self people ?
GET OVER IT GEARS KICK THE HELL OF KILLZONE 2
both of them amazing but Gears uber amazing not only the graphic but also the A.I which TAKE COVER
It's pretty obvious that the game is still in pre-alpha, it has at least 8 months until it goes gold. Second, Gears in 2005 was NOT the same as the final product. Lastly, KZ2 did look better. The bump mapping in Gears was the only thing which looked noticeably better. But the environment and lighting hardly had the same graphical flare as KZ2. There was also much more detail onscreen in KZ2, seems higher res also.
"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"
Gears hands down.
Just look at the walls and ground textures in Killzone. Flat and two dimensional. Gears is all bump mapped and textured for your viewing pleasure. : )
Seriously, just look at the wall textures and the proof is in them that Gears is better looking. (at this time anyway)
Should have used some close up footage from Gears, the small embedded screen don't show the details. And why not footage from the single player instead of multi?
Next up, COD 4 vs. Killzone? lol
What about we compare PS3's UT3 with Gears of War. The person who made this comparison is stupid and stupid again. First of all why compare different art style. If u want to compare GOW compare with UT3 because they are using the same engine. Killzone and GOW are different art style.
Anyway I cant wait until they start compare UT3 with GOW all the xbots are going to shutup.
I sir am not stupid...thank you and good day.
Give me a break, these comparisons are plain stupid for a lot of reasons. I couldn't be aresed to start giving you all the reasons why it's stupid, you should know yourself.
for the guy who liked the music if you liked that then youll love this
gears of war was made 1 year ago...you make a comparison with killzone2 which hasnt been yet made...even this big reason of unfair comparison gears rocks and think its much better from killzone2...just watch the enviroment of gears and its so easy to understand which is the best game ever made...
how can u compare a pre-pre-alpha game to a finished game?? is it just to justify ur purches?? well flash news, nobody cares about this game since they saw KZ2, the media is nuts about it since they saw it running live and actually played it, fallow the news u cant go wrong ;) and get updated kid...
how can u compare a game that's been out for MONTHS and a game that's still due out and has been in the works for as long, if not longer than the other
cuz ya can
both look good. gears is a great game. kz2 looks to be great too
fallow teh spellz chex
the Gears footage is multiplayer for the most part. Remember, Killzone is still in its pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-alpha. They have only been working on it for two years, it's probably gonna come out in a year or so and it's gonna blow everything away lol.
I'm a PS3 owner but for graphics I'll give it to gears right now because its a complete game but KZ2 is still in pre pre-alpha stage. Tbh, its really pointless to compare them right now. We should wait when KZ2 gets completed then we can compare them. For gameplay, I think they shouldn't be compared with each other because they are two different genres IMO.
better when finished, i still surport my 360 more, but killzone will have the upper hand when it comes to graphics, i will be buying it :p
to compare the best x-box 360 game to this pre-alpha is amazing! I mean if killzone 2 is even comparable to GOW at this pre-alpha stage then imagine how good the finished game will look...good job sony.
ps. can you spare me some bubbles?
Perfect music. Oh and wait. It was okay for everyone to compare multiplayer beta footage from halo 3. Hippocrates. What ever I won't even get into it.
You know what they already announced these were the final graphics for Killzone 2 and they were jut getting everything else ready. When you see something that says beta on it, you dont compare it to anything cause beta entails that the textures are not final and everything else in the game is set to change in some way, also to fix bugs if needed. The graphics have changed alot since the beta so I could say you can compare it now, but the final will be when it comes out.
Sounds like you have no idea what Beta or Alpha mean...I suggest you don't gain your knowledge by way of Chinese whispers.
yes this will be superb for ps3.Didn't someone say lvls were like 2gig a piece.A must have.
Just cause one fanboy decides to post some picks doenst mean we really need a video now to show which game know is already supperior. Gears of War!
No offense(xbox360rocks) for posting the story your just reporting news and theres nothing wrong with that.
haha well people were asking to see it so I decided to do it...I have never done that before so I figured it would be fun :) anything else people want compared, lol I can compare mario to Killzone...:) I kid I kid
No I dont have anything against you for posting it as news as thats what this site is for news. BTW killzone 2 and mariocart would be a good comparison. I'm just kidding it was funny when I read it though.
when the picture comparison was posted BS3 sandboys said"blablah blah Gears look better in pic but KS2 look better in motion" now take that haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa pre pre PS3, CELL POWER, KEN KATGARI , the next generation do not start until we say so, THE GANT ENEMY CARB, ps fanboys been served big meal of sony crab coast 600$ it seem was not the best in he menu after all.hehehe
LONG LIVE BILL GATES AND MICROSOFT
here comes another flame war
Is the only news on N4G comparisons videos now didn't we already have a Gears Vs killzone video geez whats happening to N4G
In motion... Killzone takes the cake, Gears has the textures though.. probably because everything is bump-mapped.. just highly detailed skins, not to say it doesnt look pretty though.. Killzone just looks more technical, the wall textures need a little help.. sure that will improve if claims of "pre-alphaness" are true.. maybe things just look better from afar (like in 3rd person)..
btw, gears is notorious for Popping textures ( u know what im talkin about on the Theron Guards when the skin dissapears and they look like N64 models) i got the game so i know! .. theres tearing too and nasty collisions when u play.. don't get me talkin about all it's multiplayer idiosyncracies.. the game is good tho, one of the best i've ever played like resistance and hopefully Killzone plays as good if not better
Imo, killzone looks better than the finished version of gears, and I do have gears of war. Who cares about which is better, gears is a spectacular game and I would bet that killzone 2 has some badass gameplay with all the money thats being put into it. Lol, nice choice of song by the way.
who, prior to E3, were saying; "Wait till E3, KZ will blow Gears away!"
They were sure that although the game wouldn't be finished, it would still be much better. I even saw some Sony fans asking for a video comparison instead of screenshots in the previous story. You asked for this yourselves!
gears is more animated. bcuz im pretty sure blood dosnt look like that. so killzone 4 me
why are they comparing a finish game to a unfinish and unrelease game?
i was just about to post that until i read yours tim
Gears has a lot more overall detail on everything. Colors also look a lot nicer.
Everything in Killzone 2 seems to be grey. Things also appear too blurry up close.
Textures go to Gears also.
I think Sony put together a nice trailer for KZ2 and I was really impressed when I saw it.
Now I am not so impressed. Game looks good but am not impressed when compared side by side with Gears.
Normal maps with color maps. Gears uses normal maps with their depth jacked all the way up, which is why all the characters ( and most of the environment) has such unnaturally dark surface detail. It was used to hide the low polygon counts in Gears, which is pretty obvious from this video. Normal maps are actually meant for subtle detail, such as the light wrinkles and folds in your skin. But the trend has been to substitute real geometry with normal maps, and this is evident in countless games like Gears, Doom 3, Call of Duty, etc.
Even though this is essentially an industry standard, polygons win out in the end. Luckily, the PS3 is powerful enough that it can pump out geometry better than any system on the market, including high-end PCs. Just watch the new trailer for MGS4, and you can see why high-polygon counts are necessary in order to assist normal maps.
dont u see thats what they do lol and the funny part is that xbots always get ruined by their own words.
first it was how the solds are low - but yet the 360 has been out a year headstart and PS3 did better then the 360..heck even better then the PS2.
then it was ported games - how they always say PS3 looks crappy - well for a game that was designed on the 360 then copied to the more complex system the PS3 what do u expect lol and the funny thing is - its not far off..
and now this..a pre-alpha game compared to a finished game.
IMO textures on gears look better - not much better - they look sharper but then again its a finished game. KZ2 looks STUNNING! where its at rite now. the final version will blow us away the same way GT5 is doing with the cars.
and ppl say KZ2 is dark lol gears is even darker lol with nothing happening in the background and once again 4-5 ppl max on screen..KZ2 death animation are the best ive ever seen - i honestly cant wait for this game..i hope they add co-op
Um alot of sony fans were the ones asking for the comparison you jackass...it's for fun don't take it so seriously...
You shouldn't be talking.
@ guy with crazy rtarded child avatar, we never flamed halo 3 in pre-alpha we flamed its beta :D
both games look good. can we keep it like that?
Did you make that? If look looks awesome dude keep it up.
Yeah I did...thanks. I just taught myself for the first time today...haha
edit:: someone disagreed because I said I made it? or because it's my first ever one? either way why the hell would you disagree, lol I put "your welcome N4G" at the end so lol obviously someone had to make it from this website, and I posted the story...sooo...yeah I bet you get it now, I did make it.
edit:: @moondust lol yours was cool too man...lol I just had alot of free time today and I wanted to try something new...
That's not right either, since Halo3 comes out this year, it doesn't tred on KZ2's success later when it relases. And Gears isn't any good either, since that took on Resistance (and won!) back last year.
By the way, didn't you Sony fanboys complain that all the 360 is gonna get are FPSs? Well, what do think Kill.Zone 2 is? Flippin hipocrits! And ya know what...Gears isn't even an FPS!
both games LOOK HELA GREAT! this is gonna be one gaming phenom when the real games out
Since where comparing pre alpha Killzone to Gears
kilzone all the way
Dude! You picked the worst part of Killzone. The part that Sony never wanted anyone to see. Gears looks to have better textures because of that cheesy over used normal mapping technique. Not knocking on Gears ( I actually like the way it's used in Gears) But this comparison is pretty biased and eveyone who knows better knows it.
did I? I honestly just grabbed the first HD video off Ign's website, im not being biased...
edit:: thank you DJ...I did what I could and I used the HD versions from IGN's website so they were of the highest quality I could find...
This is a fair video comparison that doesn't take any trailer footage; instead, it was taken from uninterrupted gameplay footage. While we would prefer to see these comparisons in HD in order to get a more accurate comparison, it's impossible to do so without setting up a personal site with high bandwidth.
I do recommend watching the full gameplay video for Killzone up at Gametrailers.com There's a lot of cool stuff shown there that's not in this comparison, just in case a few people haven't caught up.
i think it's boiled down to personal taste, if you like shining skins and color depth go for Geow. If you like better closer realistic human skins texture go for KillZone 2.
I've seen the KZ2 trailer n' it was nice, graphically. Honestly, n' I'm just bein' real here, I wouldn't have released that video without doing more work on the physics. The whole time there zoomin' around on that aircraft n' it's like they're sitting in their bedrooms. No one's bouncin' around or anything. Back to the topic at hand (I meant to mention that earlier in another thread), everyone's talkin' 'bout pre pre pre alpha n' what not, OKay, that's true but I'm pretty confident that what they showed...is NOT where the game currently stands, it's probably not up to par with what they showed. Now when the game DOES ship, I'm sure it will be on par with what was demonstrated. Everyone's speakin' on KZ2 bein' unfinished but I guess everyone's also assumin' that KZ2 actually looks that well. That's why they're (sorta) comparable, IMO.
If you disagree with me that's fine, so long as we can agree to disagree. I'll be the first to tell you it's nothing more or less than my opinion. I use my brain with all of my replies n' responses n' I hope you do the same.
EDIT: Ah, well after actually watching the comparison I see it's gameplay footage for both, not the trailer that was shown vs. GoW, I assumed wrong, and that pretty much means everything I've just typed out is irrelevant. I've seen this, of course GoW looks better, KZ2 aint done n' what they show is exactly where they're at with the game n' with another year to go in development I have to say it's lookin' great.
OMG, KZ2 lol. I have seen oodles of games that plow KZ2 in the past year. Pay attention fools. Condemned: Criminal Origins (a launch 360 game) does more than KZ2 in it's "pre-pre alplha" (lol yeah WTF eva sony) stage. Get a clue noobs, then realize you've been shafted. I've got screens and unlimited bandwidth to show you the truth.
it does the ai looks like idiots [email protected]
Wow! 360 fanboys campaign against KZ2...:) a lot of articles about it since E3...
Before the trailers released...they said KZ2 will not match the 05 trailer... then KZ2 trailer 07 came close to being match with 05 trailer... Now comparing w/ GOW... If your system is 2 years old..and it is the only game you use to compare with... You should be worry... becoz there is no other games beside GOW... Your library is only GOW...
Edit: all the media was impress with KZ2...except for Xbots.... why?
A developer farted and then Phil Harrison gave him a few bucks, now Killzone gets a sequel. I am straight up questioning everyones ability to identify and tell the difference between crisp and fuzz.
There is a lot discussions on xbox forums about KZ2 and many xbox owners are impressed.
Really don't know why they made this comparison. Art style of KZ2 and GeOW are completely different.
BTW animation in KZ2 is first class IMHO.
after all the cool lighting effects and texture they cant even animate right, it look so bad. hahah when that dude is getting shot in the face he just stands there and shakes like he has MS, sooooooo bad.
1) YOU LIKE MORE WHAT YOU SEE IN KILLZONE 2 PRE_ALPHA - AGREE WITH ME.
2) YOU LIKE MORE WHAT YOU SEE IN FINISHED GEOW - DISAGREE WIT ME.
it`s not about textures only, it`s about everything: Textures, Animation, Atmosphere, Blood, Impressions, Level of Details, War feeling and etc.
Ofcourse, we are not comparing full games, only what we have today(1 full_game and 1 pre_alpha), but if people started to compare, why not make a poll, so vote! =))
p.s. yeah, i wouldn`t mind to get some positive feedbacks. =)) thnx. =]
Leave me good feedback! :D
Is there a alternative? Can i save it?
pre-alpha means it hasn't even left your head! (its still concept)
alpha means its a tech demo (usually saved in a media format for better performance)
beta means bending to consumer demand for a tidbit sized playable compilation of nearly finalized code (like a playable e3 demo)
BOTH halo and killzone are betas, ones just further down the pipe than the other. in other words, halo is almost final (think beta at 90%) and killzone is in production (beta at maybe 45-65%). Again, they're BOTH betas, at diferent percentages.
didnt any of you people read the Dev interview before the morning of the E3 showing. he already said it wasnt even in alpha stage yet. most of the textures and animation in teh vieo are not final there will be a ton more detail for the final version, go read the interview.
