These games came out on Next Gen Consoles but look as dated as five years old PS2-Games. Cynamite shows a Top 10 of the most antiquated graphics in next gen videogames.
omg some of these games look really crappy
to be fair...a good amount were movie licensed games...and others were on a budget...so its understandable as to why the games underperformed...although Haze was overhyped and under delivered on its promises of being a next-gen shooter...Perfect Dark was launched along with the 360 in '05...devs were just figuring out the machine...and we have seen a steady increase in graphics on both the PS3 and 360
Crackdown 2 looks like it is 7 years old. That's right it looks like a game that came out on the last year of the xbox 1.
Crackdown 2 has an art style which works for it, I think it looks good ?
Haze has better graphics than any Halo game on 360. http://images.anandtech.com...
No. I'll take Halo's lighting and art design over Haze's generic graphics any day.
Might be off topic but Ridge Racer 7 looks very good for a 5 year old game
haha lmao fanboys
Haze didn't look like that, that screen is a bullshot.
Funny how you have so many more agrees than disagrees for what is obviously one of the dumbest comments in this article. The PS3 fanboy population on N4G.com is out of control.
Stan if I was a newcomer to N4G and was basing this website off my choice of consoles. I would definitely go with the 360, this website shows that Ps3 fanboys have no games to play and sit on N4G all day, and you can tell their insecure about there PS3 due to how they can't stand any anti-PS3 articles or pro-360 articles, they swarm to these articles, why are they not playing their PS3? I own all systems and enjoy them all, but based on this website and quite a few others, I think the PS3 may be the kids console, even over the wii,you dont see anyone from the wii fanbase on here, why? cause their playing the wii.
Haze looked pretty good just that the game sucked and voice acting was terrible.
Also the textures. It's a fun co-op game and not a bad buy for $14 each at gamestop.
It's only good if you buy it cheap ;)
Yeah i liked HAZE. Good plot, decent game, decent graphics, 7.1 PCM audio. It was okay. I actually just beat it for the first time last week - did it all in split screen co-op too. A bit glitchy (At one point every time we died we had to restart the system cause the ground would fail to load) but still good...
true most ps3 and xbox games look 5 years old
How he/who really cares who submitted FPS games and some other ones. I think games like Disgaea and Cross Edge, Last Rebellion look from mid PS2 era. Those games didn't even harness a tiny percentage of the cell processor. But that didn't mean they weren't fun.
Funny they listed Perfect Dark Zero, considering it actually IS 5 years old.
lol is it that old..... man i feel old
anyone who played Elite on the c64 is old.
pffft, commodore64, anyone who played Adventureland of the Vic 20 is old.
Anyone who played ping pong on Atari 2600 is old! :p
I played ping pong on Atari 2600. :'(
you are all old
I m 24 years old and I can say I owned a lot of systems. Atari 2600, Nintendo Nes, Super Nes, Sega genesis, N64, PC gaming, PS1, PS2, Xbox360 and PS3...
meh. in my days we played with rocks and buttons.
tch, anyone who played... WITH A STICK !..
i used to play with wooly mammoths... thats old
Haze did not look like a PS2 game. I didn't buy Haze myself, but it looked FAR from a ps2 game. The idiots making these claims need to GO BACK AND ACTUALLY PLAY A PS2 GAME on an HD tv and they will see the difference. I did, and upscaled ps2 games look horrible! Gameplay wise they're still awesome though :)
/agree The game didn't look good, but it's cause we've gotten used to this gen's standards. Pop in a PS2 game one of these days and take a look at what we used to consider "awesome graphics"!
Ps2 games do look bad upscaled. So I still play on my PS2 on my SDTV where it's still gorgeous.
yeah TV size has a TON to do with how a certain game will look...PS1 games are nearly unplayable on my 46" lcd...and its more just for nostalgia than anything else...but i'll put the PS3 up to a 13" sony crt I used to have in my bedroom as a kid...and its actually great...still pixelated, but all the graphical short comings are way less noticeable and annoying... however i started playing a lot of twisted metal black recently, after the TM PS3 announcement...which is one of the best looking PS2 games released...and on a 36" Wega CRT it to this day still looks great...awesome particle effects, lots of environmental destruction and stuff...and great lighting for a ps2 game... but that same game on the bigger 46" lcd makes a huge difference in visual quality...the blur associated with scaling an SD image to that size is ridiculous...
man its kills playing ps2 games and xbox games on a new HDTV you can see all these jaggies and stuff kills you
when the games came out, they looked 5 years old already.
every game on there would be impossible to even come close to being matched on the PS2 and pushing the Xbox on some of the really horrible ones... but Haze and PDZ are both examples of games that showed the potential of the systems in the beginning... neither game could have been done on the previous gen machines... not even close
both riddick and doom3 on xbox1 looked better than PD on 360
I think it's a little bit older than that. Edit: Wrong game lol.
Anyone else remember playing space invaders in the arcade, and the screen itself was actually coloured to give the effect of more than light grey.
And one of the best looking previous generation games is Black!
looks better than all those games in this list and thats a whole generation appart =P
Man... I still waiting for Black 2! Where is my Black 2!!!!?? >.<
they are working on some other shooter at least that's what I've heard
No Black 2, but the same devs are making another shooter with a similar sounding experience... only more so. : )
These are quite ugly.
nah, that game back in 2007 was compared with crysis very hard, but of course the pc brigade ruled crysis looked better, as they have against every other game after that
That's because it is.
maybe with mods, but the base game didnt and real talk the ps3 exclusives following haze were definately over crysis, its the pc community that keeps ruling that crysis is the best looking game yes pc nerds come disagree with me
Okay Waterboy, I've got a small challenge for you. Find me an ingame screenshot from any PS3 exclusive that looks better than the following and I'll let you troll all you want: http://www6.incrysis.com/sc... http://www6.incrysis.com/sc...
/drool @ Pandamobile's screens
@Pandamobile. You just made my day. @waterboy, you should really get those eyes checked. Might be better if you removed those fanboy goggles too.
Hey panda, guess what? http://www.gtpla.net/wp-con... http://www.gtpla.net/wp-con...
@jidery Look at the resolution. 5760x3240. Those are rendered on the PC. You fail.
@jidery Nice try, but there's no way those GT5 screens are as good as crysis. Why do PS3 fans always trump graphics on their machine as if they are the be all and end all of games? If you want real graphics, buy a PC not a PS3.
i'll bite... crysis always wins still comparisons...but since I don't pause a game every couple seconds to look at a screenshot...i care about what the actual game looks like in motion... and few things have impressed me with lighting and animation in a video game than this...not saying its overall better than crysis...but crysis sure as hell doesn't pull of death animations like this...or have as complex of a lighting engine... http://www.gametrailers.com... save the 'buht kz2 is a COReDOR SHOOTZer!!1'...crysis does some things second to none (screen shots)...but there are plenty of console titles that top it in other areas (lighting, animation, fun, etc.)...and that is fine...crysis is nearly 3 years old...crysis 2 will most likely top everything again (at least the PC version)...but its hardly unbeatable in every single aspect of rendering technology any more... shoulder jam at 18 seconds?...you won't find better animation/enemy physics in a real time playable video game yet...thats just a iron bar gate in the environment, but is obviously rendered with true realistic geometry...where most games would have that simply surrounded with invisible barriers where an enemy would slide off of it unrealistically... this is a post directed at developers...not how powerful certain gaming machines are...its the developers that come up with impressive stuff on any of the available hardware right now...no doubt PC could do way more than any current console...just stating that they are not...at least currently...
@Cleptic: http://www.youtube.com/watc... For motion. As for the animations on KZ2 they have nothing to do with the hardware. And you are mentioning fun as a factor in a graphics comparison? @Stoney: Thanks your link is better than mine.
"maybe with mods, but the base game didnt and real talk the ps3 exclusives following haze were definately over crysis, its the pc community that keeps ruling that crysis is the best looking game" "crysis always wins still comparisons...but since I don't pause a game every couple seconds to look at a screenshot...i care about what the actual game looks like in motion..." http://www.youtube.com/watc... That's vanilla Crysis, default config, and it looks amazing in motion, better than screenshots.
Well,this is the best PS3 has to offer for now,not to shabby for a 4 year old Console :P http://img143.imageshack.us... http://i50.tinypic.com/24c9...
Those are in game... The game allows to take pictures of the scene at that resolution and save them.
I rented Haze and it is nowhere near my unmodded Crysis running on my PC. Not even close. You need to see an eye doctor pronto.
oops...wrong reply @above anyway... the fun comment was simply a joke...as the AI in Crysis always annoyed me, and after the eye candy wore off initially I didn't enjoy it as much as other shooters thats all... Im also not saying Crysis doesn't look great in motion...I'm saying that when you see different titles in motion the notion of crysis 'blowing everything away' becomes much less apparent... and I did state that my post was not related to hardware...i, as well any body should, agree that PC is by FAR the most powerful asset for gaming...just that developers have not pushed the thing in years...thats all...
Crysis is an old PC game built with older APIs in mind with outdated graphics technology. PC GPUs are designed around the requirements of the APIs while the architecture of the Cell processor's SPEs (Synergistic Processing Elements) are completely open ended and have no such restrictions. Hence, PS3 games that utilize the Cell processor are able to have effects that are simply not available on any PC game.
[email protected] Iron Man 2 picture. The textures on that tank could pass as a single color. xD
I think this has better textures and its Halo 1 from 10 years ago... http://www.bungie.net/image...
I'd substitute games like Phantasy Star Universe, Last Rebellion, or even Infinite Undiscovery in there for Haze. Haze was a pretty good looking game -- its gameplay was just very meh. Graphically, most JRPGs look like they're made with the Wii in mind, and then HD-ified to work on the PS3/360. I know that's not the case, but that's how it seems.
I don't know man...Haze was pretty bad visually...the environments were sometimes kind of big in scale, but everything was so bland it was hard to consider even 'ok'...being that Resistance 2 came out not long after and had WAY bigger scale, and better everything else...yet was still a relatively average looking title...haze goes down as pretty bad imo... but like you said...the boiled-chicken flavored gameplay didn't help either...
The thing about Haze, both viosually and all round, really, was that it was VERY patchy,imho. Some parts look and play pretty well(core shooting is faultless really)but some areas(script,acting and AI inparticular)fall flat at times-the graphic-esp textures-wander around between good and bog awful for example. FRD had just so many internal p[olitical issues, middleware pulled etc that living up to announcement time claims was nigh on impossible. It looked better a year before release byh many accounts-before they had to redo all the physics and graphic engine stuff in house. Silly to list games then ignore just why they struggled so badly-PDZ,Haze and VE(among others here)all had mitigating factors, imho.
Its not possible for a PS3 exclusive to look 5 years old. Even if it is 5 years old. As for Perfect Dark Zero being on that list. EPIC FAIL. That was my 1st 360 game.... 5 years ago.
Bad looking games haze is ok lookin..
Pandamobile, are those shots from a modded version or the original?
That's the original.
