There are plenty of things that games do exceptionally realistically. It may well appear geeky to gush about a puddle in a PS3 game, but non-gamers just don't understand. It looks EXACTLY LIKE A FRIGGIN PUDDLE. And that's worth shouting about.
I like the mud slinging in Sega Rally, but the graphics really give it away. I would pick Motorstorm's mud over Sega Rally mud. The picture of Dirt 2's water does not help the author's case at all.
The mud in MS2 looks awesome.
i agree. think the article was a good idea half arsed tbh
...he could have at least captured screenshots instead of just doing google searches for official images. The BFBC2 picture doesn't even show in-game smoke, it's just a skybox.
MGS2 still has the best rain effects IMO
Sorry, but those are piss poor examples of realism.
A real puddle on a road, f$%^ if that was in the uk, it'd be a national emergency, that's a freaking lake. Bf/BFBC games do have the best smoke fx, although i did like COD2 smoke dx9 back in the day. Loved sally rally mud, track were not bad, just felt to much on rails, but it's that kinda game, old school. Motorstorm mud was excellent as well, would love an incar view in motorstorm 3, with mud,rain,etc. Rain, i kinda liked UC2 later in the game with rain fx, MGS2 also looks great for back in the day, F1 PS3 looks good also. probably tons of games i can even remember.
Heavy Rain would be a great example for Rain. and did the person forget that there is snow, sky, mountains and many other things he could have done...and none of the pics look accurate to what he says.
is the only game I have ever seen even come close to reality.... Everything else is cartoony.
Crysis is the only game that has made most things realistic in a game tbh.
Without the mods. Just my opinion.
Crysis with mods = Almost sickeningly good-looking. I'd say the only things that even touch it are Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Killzone 2, parts of Uncharted 2, and Metro 2033. If you haven't seen Metro in motion on full specs...please do.
UC2 was a beautiful looking game, one of the only console games to offer stunning landscapes that's for sure.
what about the shows realistic uniforms?
Haha. This guy didn't play Heavy Rain. I'll never forget the first time I stepped out the back door of Ethan's house. (The one where he's divorced) It was absolutely gorgeous out there! I give smoke to Killzone 2. I didn't think Bad Company 2 looked all that great...even the smoke. How does Dirt 2 win water effects over Heavy Rain, Crysis, or God of War III?!?
was very sexxy!!! I need a dx11 card soon methinks to see it in all its tasty glory!!
Oh man.......Awful list.
does anyone remember the water in this game it was amazing and still is today when i dust off my ps2
I thought God of War 1 and 2 had really beautiful water effects for it's day. Still looks great now too.
The most realistic thing I've experienced in any game was when I was playing KZ2 online. I got blasted in the face with a shotgun and I died instantly. That's uber-realism for you right there.
Water is easily the most realistic thing I've seen They can do amazing things with water now, it looks awesome in Red Dead Redemption You want atmosphere? just slowly walk up to the edge of one of the big rivers in the Elizabethan area (North, East - near Blackwater) and just look around and take in the views, and the sounds. Awesome game, awesome scenery.
