Video Comparison: Killzone 2 Vs Call Of Duty 4. Check the Link
both look pretty good. I think Killzone 2 looks slightly better imo, simply because it has more going on and the character models look better.
But damn CoD4 is looking hot!!! Especially for a multiplatform title, its just amazing!!
agree, the forest section where the tree shadows are hitting the character- the graphics look better on COD4. We would need to wait for more footage of Killzone 2 to be released but over all I still give it to Killzone 2.
I know that forest section I thought was amazing as hell it's why I included it...
edit::@flox I agree but their isn't that much video out their of the two and I kind of picked and choosed what sections I thought looked the best...it's all for fun anyways...
KZ2 has 20x more going on, it makes CoD4 look boring. I'm sure CoD4 will have it's action scenes too though, and KZ2 will have it's boring points. If it was all jam-packed, that would be fun, but I'd die 20x a level. =) CoD4 only had some scenes of grass and a small scene of some shooting on a ship from a farther distance than KZ2. They weren't close enough to compare. We need some very similar scenes, then we can see a fair fight. I think CoD4's still holding in against KZ2.
for the guy who liked the music if you liked that then youll love this
Well I love both but at the sametime I beleive there are two entirely different art styles going on here.
Killzone 2 definitely has more things going on, on the screen.
Call of Duty 4 is running at a constant 60fps, that's why the animations look more lifelike. Plus KZ2 still has to work on their textures and bump/normal mapping. They both look amazing but, i'm going to give the edge to CoD4. The shadows were awesome in the sequence when he waited for his partner to move position, that was hot! And a lot was going on in CoD4 during the helicopter crashing sequence (i.e. the smoke plumes and fire). KZ2 has some big time competition, but it does look more gorier, which to me is more my taste. Kinda why i liked Gears so much. Not afraid to get bloody.
We'll just have to wait and see how the final product turns out.
Great now I have to buy both. atleast they have some time between them so I can play one at a time and not have to switch back and forth for awhile.
easy victory for KZ 2.
cod 4 is another generic multiplat FPS
Kind of hard to compare the two. CoD4 is meant to look as realistic as possible while KZ2 is stylized. Also, that footage was the Xbox 360 version as well, so even harder to compare the two.
If I went by textures and and lighting effects alone, CoD4 takes the cake hands down. But I like the stylized art direction of KZ2 better. Kinda gives it a future/punk feel to it, you know?
COD4 looks better in texture, but the blood of KZ2 looks crazy too... I guess if they meant that KZ2 is still alpha, then it should be better on the final. but this time I choose COD4.
But KZ2 is already give me a very good impression, but I don't like the face of the character, they should kept the character on the first trailer.
:) You guys asked for it so here it is...I got bored again...:) but you know you love me...
edit:: that's exactly what I said...I didn't notice that and I turned around and totally restarted the video. lol
edit:: @ryth lol yeah I do but I had so much fun learning how to do the first one the second just came naturally and I gotta try some new things like at the end with the shorter clips, than cutting the music and trying to make it end dramatically..the ending of that KZ clip was perfect
Dude, the part where you teammate busts out of the grass in camo gear (COD4) was totally unexpected; I didn't even notice he was there at first. Killzone wins thanks to the sheer amount of things going on at once, as well as lighting, but Call of Duty is looking to be a really good title too.
You have too much time in your hands today, huh lolz. Great vid and song though
I agree with you in regards to the amount of stuff going on. For lighting, I need to see more footage. Perhaps a scene in daylight or something like that. Right now we only have that footage for KZ2 that takes place at night (although I like it already) while COD4 has day scenes.
+Bubble shot to you xbox360rocks. Good post.
Why didn't you use the "charlie don't surf" gameplay trailer, with the blackhawks. That has way more going on onscreen than Killzone.
I was only joking, but thanks for listening and putting it up. COD 4 kills.
Love you vids dude
Sorry, didn't see your post. I said the same thing to DJ.
righhhhht?COD4 looks very very good, so does killzone 2.
Killzone 2 isnt near completion, COD4 comes out in a matter of months....even with that in mind KZ2 still looks amazing
Well, to be fair then, KZ2 has been in development since before E3 2005 whereas CoD4 only started development in 2006...
Ummm I dont think thats really fair.
Cant wait to play both and cant get enough of Killzone atm.
Theres no doubt in mind that killzone is doing a whole lot more on screen then COD. Not about to get into a pointless texture arguement.
These games share very similar character, and I have to give you kudos xbox360rocks for submitting such a fair video for comparison. I love the lighting in each of these games, and we have a lot to be excited for! COD4 looks so impressive for a multiplatform title, and Killzone 2 is getting a lot of views of its brief E3 demo. We need more footage, Sony and Guerrila!
The funny thing about the texture talk that surfaces every once in a while is that unless you are viewing the gameplay at max resolution, the little details will be blurred out, leaving the art direction and basic lighting structure. I can't wait to see more of both of these games.
And the prize...
They have both won the right to sit next to my other PS3 games.
Lolz @ the disagree.
I work for a game studio/publishing company myself, it is a common consensus that Infinity Ward has got some of the best programmers at their disposal. But killzone2 definitely has the edge. Not to take anything away from COD4, but when killzone2 gets the full treatment, quote me on this, it will be the most stunning FPS/graphical showpiece to date...which would only be rivaled by Crysis, and followed closely by Gears of War. All in all it comes down to preference in art direction, favoring fantasy over realism etc. There are other games in the pipeline that will eventually take the graphics crown I think, but my opinion on those games are neither here nor there.
wins in the graphics dept.
The outdoor levels almost look real. The lighting and shadows are also phenomenal.
KZ2 looks good and has more stuff going on, but COD4 looks better. Just IMO.
Looks freaking incredible. CoD4 looks almost photo-realistic in some of those outdoor shots. This is a tough call for me to make. I want them both!
I do have to say the character models looks bigger in KZ2 and I prefer that but damn it's a tough call.
This is sick. Multiplatform COD4 has officially raped and mutilated Sony's big-budgeted long-delayed exclusive KZ2 in terms of graphics. Gameplay is a sure thing for COD4, not so sure for KZ2...
...you're alone in that one, bud. Both games look phenomenal.
BS is full of his own name. =P
i think you sound too confident on that statement... they both look nice but the animations for the main character and character's for KZ2 are far more next gen then COD4... for example on COD4 the part where his team mate jumps over the log it's a nice animation but when you jump... you jump like a stick and is considered last gen.... camera and gun movement is what should be standerd for today's gaming.... but what i like is the depth of field blur in the game which is to me next gen
I'm looking at overall graphics, be it allegedly pre-historic post-mortem whatever, and there's a clear winner. Graphics isn't everything though, but I have no doubt COD4 gameplay will be top notch.
and both these games look good by the way.but:
we already knew that gears of war,a "finished" game,
would look better in textures than an "unfinished",releasi ng next year killzone game.and that's not comparing what we know killzone oudoes gears with in everything else.
since you said we asked for the comparison xbox360rocks,could you be so inclined,since now you have "experience",to make a forza 2 vs GT5 prologue comparison.that would delight me greatly to see which game looks better.not that i don't......ALREADY KNOW.
a "finished" racing game or an "unfinished",releasi ng next year game.
how about that?thanks
also,you can't use pgr4 being that this is "finished" against "unfinished."plus, pgr4 doesn't look better than GT5 anyway.
i expect killzone to improve just like motorstorm did from E3 06 to final american/euro release.
don't you love "finished" vs "unfinished" comparisons?
EDIT:why disagree?you know when xbox360rocks posts the GT5 vs forza 2 comparison,one game is going to look better.and it won't be the "finished" game.
People asked for GOW vs KZ so I did it, people mentioned that Cod4 was the graphics of the show over KZ so I thought it would be fun to see it side by side. and some people were kind of angry at me for accidentally using the worst KZ footage I could find...so I decided to say sorry by making a much better KZ trailer and comparing it to COD4 this time...I think it was fair, I even ended the video showin Killzone, it almost makes you forget you saw anything about cod. Anyways yeah I'll one up you and make a gt,PGR4, Forza 2 comparison for fun but that's for tomorrow...
EDIT:: at the two below me...I used the best HD footage I could find guys...sorry...
why don't xbots just play games and enjoy...and stop comparing...
If you want to compare...compare Uncharted Drake vs Lost Planet..
People were asking for this comparison but his shots could of been a touch better and he's acknowledged that. Forza2 vs gtp or gt5 is a no brainer so I think the people are asking for pgr vs gtp/5. Can you fix it?
this video doesnt do any justice for kZ2, i seen both videos on my ps3 in full 1080p and kz2 looks much better, but in this video it seems cod4 look a little more polished
COD4 is looking crazy...but ive been saying that since day one like most of u...but once again game is in beta form and it looks like its coming along great.
but once again KZ2 win but i once again give the texture and sharpness to COD4 but then again its expected as they have more time on it
that stage is nearly the final product, the game itself is still in alpha, but they worked on that level as a showcase, It's probably close to the final product, yes the game is in it's alpha but that footage isn't.
Two great looking games, I think COD4 nails the realistic look just a bit better than KZ2 but barely. I like the blood in KZ and the animations when you shoot the enemy. The lighting in COD4 with all the shadows from the trees on the characters is just spooky good, all I could say was damm.....niether game is finished so I expect the finish product should be hot!, its pretty amazing though that COD4 looks so good so quickly. There are just too many great shooters these days, (I'm not complaining) I'm going to pick both of these up....and of course another one I won't mention. -lol, Its a great time to be a gamer!
I completely agreed with your post. Hopefully Killzone wil be the killer app the PS3 is missing, but I definately prefer the more realistic look of COD4. The COD series has proved itself in the past with gameplay, they match that with this level of graphics & this games is going to blow alot of other titles out of the water. Can't wait to Beta test it next month !!
Hard to compare a final game vs a game in pre-alpha.
They share great lighting, but Killzone's animations are just miles beyond anything seen to date. There's also a lot more going on in Killzone, but it manages to better COD4 in textures somehow as well (both are lacking in this area in comparison to the rest of the technical awesomeness, but they're both in alpha phase too...should improve).
Basically, I think COD4 is a poor man's Killzone; at least based on what we've seen. They both look amazing though. First graphical "steps" in a while. Also, by poor man I mean someone who doesn't own a PS3. Hate me, but deep down you all know it's true.
EDIT: Just to be clear, I'm not calling anyone poor for not owning a PS3. It's a figure of speech.
xbox360rocks great video, both of these titles look stellar, COD4 just looks sureal and KZ2 looks badass, both are going to be must own titles.
but yeah that guy that was hiding in the grass totaly blindsided me, I never would have saw him coming!
COD4 and KZ2 look about the same, but why?
COD4 comes out this year, and KZ2 is in pre-pre alpha stage having more than half a year of developement ahead it.
What had me chuckle a bit was how CoD 4's and KZ2's, in the first part of the vid, guns had very similar looking scopes.
Definitely a great comparison. Props to xbox360rocks!!!
Dude...ohkay. Honestly here. I think KZ2 blows COD4 out of the water as far as characterization and environment go. COD4 looks INCREDIBLE, but the guys at Guerilla know what a good environment is!
I think they'll bring the incredible, fast-paced gameplay of COD back with this one, but it'll be overshadowed by KZ2.
I heard about a GT,PGR4, and Forza 2 comparison.
Don't make me laugh! GT5 looks near-perfect!
ive never quite seen graphics in the same style as killzone. thats why i like it more. but i could understand if people think call of duty is better 2.
i agree... there is just something about killzone... it just "feels" better. I really cant wait for the finished product. I think its gonna blow some minds.
Actually, I feel like COD4 looks more "realistic" while Killzone looks more "lifelike". That may not make sense, but COD4 is set in the real world whereas Killzone is science fiction. What I think you're seeing in Killzone is the amazing animation and physics going on.
There are so many subtle things going on in Killzone it's crazy. Even the weight of the gun is portrayed realistically.
This just isn't happening in COD4:
"Actually, I feel like COD4 looks more "realistic" while Killzone looks more "lifelike"
You nailed it with this statement. You sir, deserves a bubble.
Killzone is as good but 3 times as busy.
Two games in development. Two games fps. Two games with no vehicle support. Two games going for a realistic feel. Call of duty 4 just a$$ raped killzone 2. And why isn't there any long distance views in killzone 2. Everything is obscured by smoke and black. Is this multi-million dollar developed game going to lack a sniper rifle?
Stateofmind below: AAAAAHHHH Nope sorry that ans. is stupid try again.
I bet you cover your eyes when you see Killzone footage. Wouldn't want your console to seem inferior.
To answer your question though, according to N'Gai Croal (who played through the demo of Killzone 2) the entire level was loaded before the game even starts. So this "obscurity" that you're speaking of must be aesthetic.
lol your welcome assassyn...I tried doing both games justice and making it fair...
I will say that it's nearly impossible to compare since Kz2 is almost shown in black and white because of the dark setting. Plus having seen so much more of CoD4 in so many levels gives it more of an edge because we've seen it in so many different backgrounds. Based on the video and the video alone Kz2 has better animations but CoD4 looks far more diverse. The winner imo is CoD4 because it gives more sense of tension over just bullets flying around you all the time.
are you saying KZ2 will not have vehicals? read here it all but confirms KZ2 will have some sort of vehicals...
Both do look pretty good but from THIS VIDEO I would have to give it to Call of Duty 4. I loved the lighting and shadows near the end of the video in Call of Duty. But Killzone looked to only show the same level while Call of Duty showed 2 levels so it's hard to compare.
What troubles me is that Killzone 2 had alot of manpower, big budget, long development time and we're comparing it to a game that took about half of what it took Killzone 2 to make. I personally expected more from Killzone 2.
Good point, but I suspect we've seen very little of Killzone 2. They havent just been sitting on there hands all this time. I think theres alot more.
Back to topic. They both win, it dont matter to me if one looks better then the other i enjoy what ever they look like, with halo 3 also .
Disagree for what someone tell me?
Ill wait until their both finished.
I know KZ2 currently looks amazing and a lot of guys seem to think,because it has a long way to go before release, that it therefore follows it will be that much better! A word of caution may be in order.The trailer was supplied for a particular purpose at E2007 and it did the job,but remember your stocks may go down as well up.As for COD4, yeah that looks amazing too, but COD games, while brilliant for multiplayer and graphical splendor, have in my opinion,lacked in campaign mode due to a lot of 'on rails'and 'set piece' type gameplay.They try and give the illusion of free roaming, but actually you only ever have a single path to take.Of course, i'm reserving my final judgement for release, but there is a saying that is particularly apt for the video games industry, which is:ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD.As i said, just a thought don't slam me for it,please.
no matter which one looks better, PS3 only fans should be happy since they are BOTH on the PS3!....and if you own both consoles then you will be blessed by the gaming gods with the option to play any game released on either console. [looks to the sky, smiling] -lol
