When matched up graphically, Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 can spark an argument about which game looks better. Both Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 sport some truly extraordinary graphics and feature unique art styles.
Man, you have a picture for everything...
Just trying to make the world a happier place :)
It's not really a great comparison to be honest.
I think Crysis 2 looks cleaner overall, but Killzone 3's art style still reigns supreme.
There is also the issue of which one has dull uninspired combat and which one is gritty and in your face.
One Geegity at a time!? lol
Do I need any more proof of how jealous non PS3 owners are of titles like Killzone 3? They positively loose control and attack everyone out of anger. Quite funny actually.
Non PS3 owners flood Killzone articles and Uncharted articles to make themselves feel better because theres no other platform that has as much going for it. So far Crysis 2 hasn't shown us anything new. PC gamers get all upset when you criticize Crysis and Crysis Warhead for being all graphics with no substance, but its true. I own Crysis Maximum Edition, played through both games and tried Crysis Wars a few times back in November of last year and havent gone back since. Crytek has alot to prove, but if Crysis 2 actually ends up being a great game I'll buy it, but so far it looks just ok.
Crysis 2 has more polygons but Killzone 3 has way better animation, A.I., etc. This is exactly like what happened between Killzone 2 and Crysis 1. Killzone 2 and 3 win in my book. They are much more immersive than a generic shooter with great detail.
Geez, who cares? Crysis didn't have much gameplay and Killzone 2 was just boring. Quit trying to talk up which game is better and just play something and wait patiently instead. Time will tell.
Wow and here everyone will say KZ3 looks better even though it is only 720P runs at 30FPS and isnt even set in an open world environment. @Menoyou I disagree on the AI, maybe on the animation but considering Crysis is an OPEN WORLD game it is clearly superior but of course your a PS3 fanboy so its no point putting facts in front of you.
Crysis will have the superior graphics simply because it's on the PC. I doubt how it will look on the console versions, and comparing PS3 Crysis to PS3 Killzone 3 is the only fair comparison to make, but what's the point? Are we trying to find what has the best graphics overall? It's Crysis on PC. Are we trying to see what's got the best graphics on consoles? Then likely Killzone 3 when it releases, (I contend UC2 still looks the best). Really, I don't see the point. Both games will look great, and they are just so different to compare that it's worthless to try, especially since these are such early models. I will say however, that the guns and death animations in Killzone look far more effective and dramatic than in that Crysis trailer.
Damn Alpha-Male22 you cannot bring your logical thinking to this website. That is blasphemous.
if you ask me PC Crysis2 > Killzone 3. If you ask me console KZ3 > Crysis 2. I think so anyway. Between the two trailers... KZ3 looks more polished at this point.
A reasonable, rational and logical analysis of a situation? WTF you doing on N4G??
I agree with you. But then again, it also depends on what hardware your PC has. My old computer would definitely run Crysis 2 with better than Killzone graphics, but my new one will not :(
Dont Talk Bullshit Dude Cause Only Those Who Hv Fully Upgrade There Pc Wil Able To Play Crysis At Full Setting.I Can Assure Many Pc Gamers Around The World Doesnt Hv Fully Upgraded Pc Like Me Will Not Be Able To Feel The True Graphics And Gameplay..And Abut The Ps3 u Dont Need To Upgrade Anything It Builtin.So Its Is Already AT Full Setting.
crysis 2 (on consoles) will not look better than killzone 3. Based on what we have seen of both games Killzone 3 is another league! Personally I am not even impressed with crysis 2's graphics right now. They seem kind of overhyped.
Oh please. How approves this shit? Two unreleased/unfinished games. C'mon people. "crysis 2 (on consoles) will not look better than killzone 3. Based on what we have seen of both games Killzone 3 is another league!" I agree, but..so what? Graphics aren't the only thing that it'll make me buy a game. I'll most likely be buying both. And regarding ur "overhyped" comment...there not overhyped... for the PC at least. The console versions look great...but no where close to KZ3 pre-alpha IMO. Its a shame that they're gimping the PS3 version graphically to keep it "equal" to the 360 version...but who knows, the gameplay might be awesome. "killzone is lacking major detail and textures (blurrrrrr)." Yes, thats definetly true. But I don't expect it to look like a game built for a $3000 PC. KZ3 looks AMAZING for a console game. But I think in one year, it can potentially look a TAD better than Crysis 1. Crysis 2 on PC? No ones touching that for a while graphically.
Sometimes I see fanboyish comments on your behalf,but I can't agree more with you this time,it's common sense,it's not like we are comparing PS3 to PS3,it's PC to PS3,and Crysis is being made by a brilliant studio,so it's not going to be your all the time mediocre half assed pc game,it's going to be an amazing game (graphics wise) like crysis 1 was. People forget that just because a game is better than another game (graphic wise) doesn't mean the other one sucks :/ ! Not to mention,Killzone 3 & other PS3 titles proved that console games can look as great as PC games,but because of the console lack in hardware,it can't be pushed even further. But to be honest here,we don't see as many great looking PC games like we see them on consoles,but when a great looking PC game comes out (like crysis,GTA 4 and others) we can actually feel the difference ! Not to mention the mods that you can make for PC games ! so in conclusion : I gave you a bubble of "well said" and a +1 :) !
I said (on consoles)
fanbois stop being delusional. Just look at the character models. killzone is lacking major detail and textures (blurrrrrr). crysis is crisp. beautiful...
Let's take the facts that Crysis 2 is already in Beta stage, Crytek will release a Multiplayer Beta, and Crysis 2 will come this year. Killzone 2 is in Pre Alpha or Alpha Stage, not even a Beta and Killzone 3 will be released next Year. KZ3 will have better graphics and they will add new things next year.
first is kz3 next is black ops. Black ops has more than 3 colors and much more visible detail. (Crysis2 looks better) You fanbois are delusional... you guys need some serious help. Im not say killzone 3 looks bad, shoot, ill probably get it. But sorry, IT IS NOT the best looking game i've seen.
For Technical superiority on console, I think Killzone got the edge over Crisis 2. The animation, lighting, physics and particle effect just looks better on Killzone3. Just look at the animation when the enemy gets shoot or brutally kill: have any of you see that level of animation on a FPS console before? Please show me if I’m incorrect. Killzone 3 takes the cake 4 graphics. Crisis takes the cake on V-sync problems
unless Crysis 2 runs at 60fps on consoles, there's no comparison. There's little that's truly techinically impressive or unique in the Crysis 2 vids shown. Apart from the inevitable hype involving anything named Crysis, it appears to be another generic shooter. Vanquish seems a lot more interesting. The new fighting modes in Killzone 3 could be interesting as well but time will tell if it's useful or just a gimmick.
i have to say kill zone 3 does look better. but it looks like its running at 20 frames per second. whats up with that
Come back in 2011.
I suspect Crysis will have a demo play thru at E3...lets compare then...in the mean time Crysis is up against Halo Reach ( 14 wks away ), Brink, MOH and of course COD black ops...ALL this year...that's the competition...All those games will have live demo's...game play will be definitive ( all releasing in 5 mnths or less ) and are fighting for consumer dollars THIS YEAR... I think gamers will be blown away by how good all those games are... Gears of War 3 has yet to show it's Demo...I suspect Gears will blow everyone away...luckily, we won't have to wait to long to find out... KZ 3..well..I was very disappointed...the trailer was a mess and should of never been shown like that...Low res and frame rate issues was evident everywhere including all the pre-rendered cut-scenes...Melee attack is a good idea being performed badly...The camera has to pull back to a TPS view so you can see what is going on...Same for the jet pack...many FPS games pull the camera back when performing a melee attack or using a heavy weapon, Fallout and Halo being 2 examples...Kotaku had a go at the live demo and said it still needs a lot of work...that much is obvious... Personally. I think Kz 3 could be in trouble...the mad push for 3D and the talent drain ( Brink ) is obviously hurting Guerilla...Hopefully, they can pull it together before 2011...
crysis 2 is the better looking game killzone 3 looks amazing but i prefer games that go for gritty realism not great art style so in my opinion crysis 2 all the way and bring on the fangirl onslaught
Trust me Morganfell, im not jealous of Killzone. None in the least.
And here, we, Go... *Curls in to a ball in corner of room...*
what version of crysis is that
wow another one of these.
Killzone 3 will be the superior title in every way.
Killzone 3 looks better. Plus it's more realistic with all the mo-cap and the way guys crumble when they get shot.
Killzone 3 looks better so far because Crytek have only showed off the 360 version of the game.
yea and in that gameplay vid it definitely didnt look like crysis. hope the pc ver. look completely different cause if not it got dumb down
I'm not sure the PS3 will be that big of an improvement though from what we've seen of the 360 version since how most multiplats end up very similar. Then again, back in the first few CryEngine 3 videos it did look significantly better on PS3. And since it's supposed to take full advantage of each console, I think we all know which console has been putting out the best graphics. I hope the PC version won't suffer though.
It is almost impossible that Crysis 2 will look better than Killzone 3 when only comparing console versions. Crysis 2 for the PC should be able to surpass the original Crysis graphically, making it the best looking game on any platform, at least when it is with the right hardware configuration.
Killzone 3 because it looks awesome right now but its only its developement stage right imagine how good it will look in 3/14/2011
killzone 3 looks better than crysis 2 on consoles so far. crysis 2 obviously looking better on the pc is obvious.
Killzone 3 looks more realistic and detailed to me. Crysis 2 looks more like they are using shine on objects which makes it look more detailed. Shine seems to be overused this gen because it's the most noticeable effect in high definition. But look at the details of the blocks on the buildings in Crysis 2. Doesn't look like they have many textures on the surfaces of the objects. So, overall Crysis 2 looks shinier with a ramped up resolution. Crisper picture without the actual detail. Love the city above. Killzone 3 has less shine with more detail in the textures. Love the water.
they both look good, but neither are done yet. To be fair we don't know what the ps3 version of crysis looks like. I think k3 will look better on ps3, but of course crysis will look better on pc.
I still have no idea why people would care when everything looks the same, but as a game killzone has always been a failure as no looks can save crap games from that...hope this helps some people. "Killzone 3 looks better. Plus it's more realistic with all the mo-cap and the way guys crumble when they get shot." ever game does that dummy.
killzone 2 n killzone liberation were both amazing games. so by sayin kz as a game has been a failure, u have jus proven ur ignorance.
its not even better than uc2. let them fix the frame rate n other issues then we'll talk. but as of now, it doesnt have that wow factor
I think it's quite obvious that Crysis 2 looks better than KZ 2.5. I mean--can we drop the silly fanboyisim here? Whats new in KZ 3 exactly? Jetpacks, snow and a new melee combat system because I'm not seeing any kind of graphical leap here in the slightest.
crysis 2 on consoles dont even look better than kz2. so its obviously not gonna look better than ur so called "kz 2.5" wasup wit ppl hatin so much on sequels???
you hypocrite! you say "lets drop the fanboyism here" and then you refer to killzone as 2.5 and then carry on criticizing it. Both games look amazing so far, i dont think killzone 3 actually needs a graphical upgrade (is that even possible) because killzone 2 is still one of the best looking fps's out there
on consoles. but the best game graphics wise is still god of war 3, let's see if killzone 3 can beat that game.
big sony fan here but pc graphics on a decent pc destroy ps3 graphics, first crysis has MUCH better graphics on high settings than uncharted 2. But the game is super generic and boring. on consoles I dont think crysis 2 will look better than k3 especially if they gonna try to make it look equal with 360 version.
Yeah and crysis 2 is so innovative right? whats so new with crysis? killzone 3 shits all over crysis when it comes to overall package. all crysis is about is graphics. shitty gameplay, shitty online and shitty story. Killzone 3 has a above average story and really fun gameplay and the online part is where the party is at.
The gameplay of the first Crysis was good, i loved the semi openworld. However story and online was not really good.
Can I ask a question? Who the hell cares? I hate graphics compparisons even normally, but comparing two games that aren't even done yet is flat-out stupid.
Killzone 2 didn't bring anything new to the table - yes it was pretty, but for me just another shooter. Apart from jetpacks and new melee animations it looks like Killlzone 3 wont be brinigng much else new either. I liked the nano-suit from the first Crysis but it had flaws which seem to have been addressed in Crysis 2.. but again nothing new has been brought to the table. Definitely two of the lesser games i'm excited about this E3.
It's very difficult to decide whether or not I would like these games or not. Crysis just doesn't seem like a very big deal anymore ever since I stopped gaming on my PC and KZ2 feels to slow ever since I switched between MW. By the day my interest in games just fade away. Only way to tell is to play these games in the future. This is just my opinion.
these sites need to be shut down. fools.
Oke, compare pre alpha stage Killzone 3 and still look better than Crysis 2 a product that is ready for the release.
Are you guys stupid as well as blind? Killzone 3 looks better than Crysis 2? Crysis 2 blows Killzone 3 out the water period. Killzone 3 looks exactly the same as Killzone 2 aside from a few new melee animations. Crysis 2 is running on a new engine and is no where near complete.
Buy a glasses, that's all i can say. It's incredibly that people think that a multiplatform game looks better than a first party platform from GG Killzone 3. Even Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 BEAT Crysis 2 on Consoles. ----------------------------- ------------------------------ - ------ tweakedhuman PC version will possible look the same as the consoles version, becouse the engine have to share with the PC architecture.
Learn to use proper grammar. That's all I have to say. It's obvious your a fanboy. Believing that Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 beat Crysis 2 graphically is laughable and almost conspiracy like. Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 are old and linear games. Crysis 2 is a brand new game running on a new engine. There's nothing wrong in a multiplatform game looking better than a exclusive game. It must be difficult for you to comprehend a game looking better than one of your previous exclusives.
this arguement is pointless crysis 2 is will be better tech wise. crysis 2 on pc will completely destroy anything out on any platform just like crysis does and its a 3 year old game
which is sad and there not truly optimizing the pc version the only difference will probably be in unscaled resolution and better aa on pc, they said they were just gona port it. i have crysis 1 on pc max setting and the consol version looks a lot worse. also kz engine is optimized for the ps3 which will give it a competitive edge.
Right now...Killzone 3 pre alpha looks better than crysis 2 (360). Its not even close. What is unknown is whether Crytek will take advantage of PS3 beastly powers and whether Crytek will push the PC graphics. If not Killzone 3 will easily be graphics king including PC
Crysis 1 on PC destroys killzone all of them. Please explain to me how a game not even full HD at 30 fps can even touch a PC game. BFBC2 on PC looks better than killzone. LOL and what beastly powers would you refer too a 7800 gtx for graphics or the discontinued from it's inventor IBM cell processor. @ below nice to see someone here has a brain.
As far as your someone having a brain comment goes, I am willing to bet that my IQ is a lot higher than yours. We all know that Crysis on Max Settings on a beastly PC rig puts all games too shame. But I am willing to bet that Crysis running at the same setting as Killzone 2/3 (720p/30FPS) on a PC with equivalent graphics card to the RSX won't look as good as Killzone 2 and definitely not as good as Killzone 3.
