NG: We plundered hundreds of our reviews to come up with this; the definitive shit-list...
HALO 3 LOLZ (ironic comment)
Halo 3 isn`t the best looking game out there, but there is way worse. Alot of the 360s launch games weren`t the best looking, alot of them were just hi-res PS2 games. It was pretty disappointing, after all the hype leading up to it`s release.
Bomberman: Act Zero (probably the worst, it looks like a XBL/PSN/Wii title at best) http://xbox360.ign.com/obje... 360s launch games, 90% of them were not attractive. http://www.ign.com/index/re... BTW, 8.4 for PDZ is just wrong.
um halo is horrible looking for being considered AAA. i mean how are the Human models in ffx on ps2 better than halo 3's??? yeahhhhh
So are you saying there is nothing worse out there? Because that`s all I`m saying.
Yeah right here we go its only Xbox that had ugly launch games look at Resistance 1 now, its got crappy textures but of course you guys think it still looks better than Crysis...
Halo ODST looks worse than Halo 3 IMO, but these AAA exclusives need not be here.
considering halos pedigree and the budget and time that goes into halo games halo 3's graphics are an absolute tragedy among the worst on the 360 they had the time and the money while that can't be said for most other games
graphics for a LAUNCH PS3 title were actually very well done. You know, this is back when 90% of the industry thought the PS3 was a overcomplicated space computer? Yeah, back then. Textures weren't anything special but textures don't dictate overall visual fidelity, they simply contribute to it. People like you whine about Killzone 2's textures and we all (true gamers) know how good that game actually looks. Fail. Resistance is one of the finest looking launch games in a long while. Try again pal.
recistance 1 had fantastic breaking of glass, to be honest I don't know any game that has better breaking glass than R1 on ALL platforms if you gonna disagree than please give an example of a game with better broken glass graphics the ugliest game imo this gen was dynasty warriors gundam
Hahaha Halo 3 had some of the worst this gen? Hell no. They were definately below AAA level but they were still average atleast, when people slag off Halo's graphics it's because it's one of the 360's best games but it's graphics are no where near the other best games of the gen(see KZ, Gears, Uncharted etc). And it's all about graphics this gen.
prototype and crackdown 1 and 2 for what weve seen
LOL I love how it takes a true gamer to be able to decide whether a game looks amazing or not. OH but it has AA this and that and this, the point is if it looks good, it looks good, looks bad it looks bad. They are called looks for a reason, just because it has all this software and hardware pushing it doesnt mean it looks good, and if they have to dumb down something and up something to make it look better then so be it, as long as it looks good. Its kind of hard to explain what im trying to say by typing it but i hope some of you get what i mean. "True gamers can only tell if it a game looks good"- HAHA wow thats hilarious!
@ Ocelot Resistance FoM also had the best falling snow hands down.
No, no I don't know what you mean. I was calling out a fanboy, he isn't a gamer because, well, HE'S A FANBOY...hence why he will be in denial about a game's graphics on a "competing platform"...He's going to do everything to incite pure delusion so that he'll always think PS3 games look like crap and 360 games are eye-bleeding awesome, hence why a gamer will be able to see good games on all consoles and therefore have a righteous and fair point of view. Conloles is a fanboy, he doesn't have the right to claim he gives accurate viewpoints. He lost that by claiming some insane allegiance to a game platform.
What does TGSI mean? seen it alot around these parts, but only here. never anywhere else.
The Genius Said It or The Generic Statement Implied
I think it's the second one I've never heard anyone say the genius said it.
The Genius Said/Says It
Even though I thought Haze was fun, I thought it looked like a PS2 game.
i agree with you, but the graphics i didn't mind still had fun playing it
Halo 3's far from the ugliest this generation. Looking for hits?
Halo 3 one of the best looking games this gen...lol Now Gamer is clueless. They never have anything truthful or relevant to say, least of all about the 360. PS3 owns the biggest library of ugly games. Every PS3 multi-plat is ugly. Zipper makes ugly games for a living this gen. If Twisted Metal doesn't make a turn around it'll be on alot of these lists in the future.
You are the best joke here cez the troll. i hope you are only trolling, and not believing all the lies, craps, you can say everyday.
Football manager- For those who 'get' that series, the rating of its graphics is beyond meaningless. Its insanely addictive and when i get stuck in, usually days pass without me being aware...
I think there ignoring pc games because dragon age looked good on pc it was just the console versions that had bad graphics
That's what the guy said and that's probably why it was #25 on the list, since all versions weren't bad. I never really thought that the graphics were overly bad in that game anyways.
MAG. If Halo's on that list, MAG has to be at least somewhere there. Halo does have some beautiful moments in the campaign, mixed with some bleh.
Mag : 256 players + vehicules. can't have killzone graphics (but have pretty much call of noobs online graphics, and halo)
For what it does, MAG looks hot. Context is key here. It's not like Tetris where they had a lot of horsepower to spare and just didn't try.
Halo 3 isnt the ebest looking game this gen but its far from the ugliest look at these games Target Terror , The Conduit. Golden Compass the 1st screen is absolutley horrendous
I don't think Wii games should count, sine it would make it completely unfair. I know that The Conduit is a Wii game, not sure about the other 2.
the 1st 2 screens are Wii games the last one is a 360 , PS3 game, and why shouldnt the wii be included a sh!tty lookin game is a sh!tty looking game, the games i displayed aren't exactly the best looking games on the wii the wii can produce some amazing looking games look at SMG1,2 Metroid Prime 3, Other M, red steel 2, Mad World, RE Darkside Chronicles, LoZ Wii
i didnt like halo 3 coz i am not too much into fps space spartaa thing.. but graphics wasnt bad... its nothing but bashing, bashing and more bashing.. peace
Yes it had some good effects and scale was large but looks wise it was not good. Also ODST looks better than Halo 3 I would say. Halo3 ODST didnt disappointed me in graphics department, (it was not outstanding though) but, Halo 3 did. Also PDZ looks better than Halo 3 only disappointment was it had plastic like textures but it looked good. The game was really detailed.
No Prototype or ShellShock Vietnam? really BAD games Edit: Saw, Deadly Premonition, Alpha Protocol, other then the main character model The Saboteur looked really bad aswell and what about Prison Break? thats gotta b top of the list (and ive played it)
Without PICTURES. I mean big pictures to see how bad the games look, i don't know what half of them look like... so i can't laugh along with it. You'd think they'd at least have a picture for number 1.
Click the link on the game's title for pics ;)
Definitely Shellshock: Vietnam. That game is bad in all areas.
What was wrong with Prototype? Did you see everything it was doing on screen at once?
For an open world game The Saboteur looked great, nothing wrong with it IMO. Prototype was alright, It did have a lot going on at the same time though. Saw wasn't bad but wasn't good, bit like Silent Hill. I do agree with Shellshock Vietnam, Deadly Premonition, Alpha Protocol and Prison Break as been poor in the graphics department.
No vampire rain how can people forget that game.
My mistake than.
Its also the worst of worst games in modern day and in gaming history.
I wished they would sort out their line-height issue on that site...
Pathetic list. There are a lot of games on there, that while average, aren't anywhere near the ugliest.
Two Worlds did have some ugly graphics, but Last Rebellion was worse. Two Worlds looked like they tried to make it look next gen but just horribly failed and was unpolished as hell, Last Rebellion just looked like a straight up PS2 game.
how can you make an article about ugly games with like no pictures or videos. Pathetic list indeed.
I'm pretty sure this list is incomplete without Lair.
you've clearly never seen Lair. It wasn't the graphics that were a problem.
I wish E3 was still going, so we didn't have to endure the constant list spam that is now going to occur. Take a look at "You Are Empty".
wow.....what did they do set out to make the worst list they could?
I wouldn't consider Dragon Age for the PC an ugly game at all.
Agreed. Dragon Age on PC might not be considered to have "amazing visuals", but it's far from being the 25th ugliest looking game.
Although the graphics weren't technically amazing, the game itself looked great. Some places like the circle of magi, or the interiors in ozammar, or the elven ruins, all looked amazing with all the settings cranked up on PC.
Is there any TRULY ugly or graphically bad games this generation? We're at a point where at best games only look mediocre or generic. I haven't really seen a truly ugly or truly bad game graphically this generation. In the past you could say OH that game looked truly like junk, but do we say that now because a game truly looks like junk, or because they all look the same due to the Unreal 3 engine?
And the funny thing is back then when those games came out we thought they were amazing looking. Look at FF7, amazing looking back then but now its not.
Taking 10 minutes to compile some screenshots would of improved the article no end.
I don't think it looks that great on 360 either, but the screen-tear is absolutely unforgiving. Even after the patch there is hardly a scene that doesn't have flicker or a tear. Even videos, where no graphics are being rendered, just an FMV playing feature tear. Inexcusable.
That game was terrible IMHO.
A lot of folk still in denial. It was an OK game, hyped because of the tits and ass, and ported really badly.
Fuzion Frenzy 2 doesn't look bad at all.... It's a bad game.....But it doesn't look bad...... >_>
It's bad in every single way. I think it's mainly the badly animated Micheal Jackson-alike host that just waves his hands. And cards? Cards?!? What were they thinking? And I loved Fusion Frenzy on XBOX.
I love Earth Defence Force 2017. Try the PS2 games...they look even worse! But the second one plays better...no lie! Also, where the hell is the localised version of Sandlot's Nintendo published Wii game? Fail Nintendo, fail.
The moment I saw EDF2017 on there, I was like "Damn, Cajun's gonna be pissed LOL". Dun worry about it man, Mercenaries 2 was buggy as hell and many would consider it a mediocre looking game, but I love that game more than just about any other open world game this gen.
Nah. EDF gets a free pass. I know it looks 'bad' but it's not really all that bad, I like the chromed graphics on the ships, mega reflective of all the lighting around. Big scale sandbox to blast apart too. You can see where the processing power went when you see the craziness going on.
Quote from what the article says about EDF: "Fair enough, this was a budget game and it certainly didn’t budget on gameplay." The NowGamer guys actually love EDF.
He went a long way just to get his shot out at halo 3 lol. And put Mag on that list lol . Halo 3 is ugly but mag sacraficed alot to put more on screen and halo 3 doesnt look as bad as mag lol. Mag had so many dirty and ugly textures on the rocks and enviroment i had to check my HDTV i thought it was broken it looked so bad. Then when i put in Uncharted 2 i was like dang MAG is just ugly. And yes i beat uncharted 2 look it up im gravyshooter on ps3 lol. And dont bash earth defence force that game is crazy fun its like being the little soldiers trying to battle godzilla as he tears up tokyo. That game is bad ass when you get attack buy 200 giant ants or like 200 metal godzillas shooting lazers of death at you lol.
