omg some of these games look really crappy

Cevapi882612d ago

to be fair...a good amount were movie licensed games...and others were on a 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.

Conloles2611d ago

Crackdown 2 has an art style which works for it, I think it looks good ?

gtamike2611d ago

Haze has better graphics than any Halo game on 360.

Shepherd 2142611d ago

No. I'll take Halo's lighting and art design over Haze's generic graphics any day.

PS3istheshit2611d ago

Might be off topic but Ridge Racer 7 looks very good for a 5 year old game

Ve3tro2611d ago

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 is out of control.

olLANDSHARKlo2611d ago

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.

ThanatosDMC2611d ago

Also the textures. It's a fun co-op game and not a bad buy for $14 each at gamestop.

gtamike2611d ago

It's only good if you buy it cheap ;)

Axecution2611d ago

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

ShadowJetX2608d ago

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.

morventhus2612d ago

UltraNova2612d ago (Edited 2612d ago )

Luzce2612d ago

I played ping pong on Atari 2600. :'(

UltraNova2612d ago (Edited 2612d ago )

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 :)

Luzce2612d ago


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"!

CobraKai2612d ago

Ps2 games do look bad upscaled. So I still play on my PS2 on my SDTV where it's still gorgeous.

Kleptic2612d ago

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...

skip2mylou2611d ago

man its kills playing ps2 games and xbox games on a new HDTV you can see all these jaggies and stuff kills you
