You may have seen a lot of KZ3 from GamesCom but FirstPlay magazine has a little more for you Helgan fans Enjoy
Amazing, best looking game of 2011 like she said.
i have to agree with her too , my favorite 2011 game so far
"So they dont agree that its not the bet looking game of 2011??" We haven't seen every game to come out in 2011..which is why the first comment is getting disagrees. I disagreed as well. And Alpha's right..objectively speaking, Crysis 2 on PC will look better than KZ3. I never understood why the PC gets ignored on N4G so much. Its the most popular gaming console in the world. More people in the world have a PC than PS3,360, Wii owners combined. Btw, why do the comments in KZ3 articles primarily revolve around graphics? The game has other more important elements IMO..u know..like gameplay. I swear, theres always at least 2 or 3 people that feel the need to mention Rage or Halo Reach and how they compare to KZ3 graphically. Whats the point and what do you have to gain from getting into these highly subjective arguments?
Well you kind of contradicted yourself. It can't be best looking game of 2011 if you are going to selectively choose Crysis for consoles. The PC does exist, and Crysis 2 will likely have "best" graphics for 2011 if you include the PC. Crysis is amazingly photo-realistic and some of the physics I've seen are incredible. Regardless, I am much more interested for Killzone 3. Why? Gameplay and Multiplayer seems better so far. It's an exclusive firstly, and as a result I expect to see more happening with the game. As a game Killzone excites me more, but it's not fair to say K3 will have the best graphics of 2011 and then choose not to include the PC in the definition.
eh... and a double Meh for her dumb accent.
im buying KILLZONE 3 the day it comes out. ive personally have not seen any shooter graphically better on consoles. http://www.youtube.com/watc... "RAGE" http://www.youtube.com/watc... "CRYSIS 2" http://www.youtube.com/watc... "HALO REACH" http://www.youtube.com/watc... "K.I.L.L.Z.O.N.E. 3."
REACH is the weakest
hardly it's gonna take a lot more than pretty graphics for me to buy kz3, I bought kz2 near day 1 and it bored me to death. only a beta or demo will change my mind
Not only is Killzone 3 far and away the best looking of those, it stomps them in animations and gameplay too.
@Mista T: That link didn't really prove that Reach isn't the weakest, though. I mean, don't get me wrong, the game has a lot going for it, like the geometry is very smooth and the lighting and reflections are impressive. But what's wrong with it is that the textures are incredibly bland. There's just no texture detail anywhere. Everything just looks like shiny, smooth shapes, nothing has POP to it, there's just no TEXTURE there. It's like most surfaces are just a more or less solid color. It makes the world look pristine, which can be attractive, but it also makes it look like it lacks in detail when you examine the scene. The video that aceofspades posted for Reach has much more detailed and technically impressive graphics going on. Not sure how you think yours proved a point, because the original video definitely shows a more impressive level.
what about Deus Ex: Human Revolution. that game looks cooooool.
Hmm...I'll judge them when I actually play them. I've seen videos of each of them that look amazing and then in other videos they don't look as good.
notice the comments above, it's all about the graphics to them, not a mention of gameplay or fun factor " "looking" could be anything
That`s because the first comment was commenting on the graphics. Simple, it really is.
thats because we havent played the game yer cod modern warfare 2 looks fun you play it its not fun
This will be hard for best looking game of 2011 it will probably be between this and Last guardian. Edit: Well if you dont add in Crysis for PC as alpha stated.
. . . . . Killzone 2.5
do you mean Killzone 2 (3D) ? :P
Put Killzone 2 (3D) in a formula, and the product is Killzone 6D. ;)
More like 6ay
did you just really say that based off pre-alpha footage...good job man...i like your logic...and the fact that we havent seen the game in 3d nor a lot of move footage, you still go out and say kz 2.5....ohhh and lets not forget all of the new features in MP....but as it stands, its still kz 2.5 for you...you must be disappointed by a game that doesnt release in another 6 months
Considering that all they did with the last 3 builds of KZ2 was play around with the lighting and change the characters clothing, I can say for sure that it won't look any different than this. People always say to wait for the last build, but when the final build is shown for many games they always look the flippin same. The only difference I can see is a few sharp textures here & there, but apart from that this looks exactly like KZ2. you should be happy i'm not calling it Killzone 2.1, and 3D? LOL 3D sucks! @Below: I think both RAGE and Crysis 2 look better than this in terms of everything. . . . . I'M A PS3 FAN & NOT A SONY LOYALIST!
And i think Kinectimals looks even better, but then again, i am on drugs right now, i can admit it "I HAV A PROBLEM"
sony loyalist?? that.....that....well that really hurt mister...its not nice to play with someone feelings :( :( :( oh snap i should be happy that you aren't calling it KZ 2.1....damn you are so good at pinpointing graphical features in games that you should be working for GG and show them how its done and you are SURE that it won't look any different...alright, remember this comment when the game comes out...and remember that it was you who said it...and as for the "wait for the last build" part....Uncharted 2 has something to say about that... i still find it funny that you are trying to critique a game that has some of the best graphics on the PS3...and if you even bothered to read my comment you would have realized that the majority was about the new features that will be incorporated in the game like new enemies, new settings, a totally revamped MP, new ways to experience the game...you know those things that are needed to make a SEQUEL to a game...BUT you still stand on by your belief that KZ 3 is KZ 2.5 just based off of your critique of the graphics because you have the best expertise in the world of what looks the same and what looks better
And what about you, MulticonsoleOwner? You chose that user name in the hopes that people would think you were a level headed gamer. In reality you should just change your user name to PS3Fanboy since that is what you actually are.
Which Killzone 2.5 looks better than any other FPS on ''Consoles'' even in Pre Alpha Build.
Actually, it's killzone 2, because the last one was pretty much killsone 1.5 No different from the first killzone.
Especially with the slew of improvements just released for the MP, confirmed variety in environments (jungles, space), and the 3D and Move support. Oh yeah, and this game is still in Alpha build if you understand what that means, which I doubt. EDIT: "Pre-alpha" -__-
I have a question, what makes a sequel a sequel? since '06 we have been dealing with new IPs and games new to the ps3 and 360 (new tech) and we have come to a time now where we have found the limitations of the consoles. don't expect games to have the huge graphical improvements. Killzone 3 is a NEW game, that improves on killzone 2. Slightly better graphics, vehicles in multiplayer, move support, new story mode, better controls(apparently), new environments,JETPACKS, new guns.
Well, considering KZ2 still looks better than Halo Reach....Killzone 2.5 isstill gonna be awesome. Its gonna have new settings (jungles, outer space, etc.) that they haven't showed yet, so its most definitely not 2.5
killzone 1 and killzone 2 werent alike at all. they werent even in the same generation... stupid fanboy
I don't see anyone else here, so you must be talkin to me. if you are, i apologise for not adding "/sarcasm" at the end
Pre-alpha and the game looks that good... God forbid the final version.
Oh dear god I cannot wait for this game! Many sleepless nights are forseen when I get my hands on this.
notice the tips of the guns on the jetpacks glow when you are hammering them. Fucking stunning.
Normally I don't like accents but hers was hawt. Those brutal melee kills look well...brutal lol. I'd say the helghast's eyes are orange.
"@ the Sony LOYALIST above Considering that all they did with the last 3 builds of KZ2 was play around with the lighting and change the characters clothing, I can say for sure that it won't look any different than this" First of all, this is PRE-ALPHA gameplay and still look better than Rage or Crysis 2. Look at the both world, RAGE calm world without any intense gameplay and Crysis 2 looks like also little more agresive world without 100% intense gameplay so far i have seen. Killzone 3 has all of this an yet looks better. "People always say to wait for the last build, but when the final build is shown for many games they always look the flippin same. The only difference I can see is a few sharp textures here & there, but apart from that this looks exactly like KZ2" Dream on boy, man you need really play with your Halo!! "you should be happy i'm not calling it Killzone 2.1, and 3D? LOL 3D sucks!" You happy with that, be happy in a world of ignoring and noobs. @Below: I think both RAGE and Crysis 2 look better than this in terms of everything" Yeah, spoken like a real 360 fantard without any arguments. Play you gears or Halo and shut your mouth. Look at teh waves of the ocean boy and the intense of gameplay and compered with you beloved calm world Rage and Crysis 2. Even Killzone 2 kick Crysis 2 and Rage in their fatt arse.
Real Killer trolling again....
But her voice was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. Holy shit. And this footage is entirely old..
I want to see a level that isn't covered in snow. although the snow is beautiful and can only be rivaled by Uncharted 2's snow.
my goodness stop the topics about next gen, with the kind of visuals kz3 and gt5 shows us, we don't need next gen this early up to 2015
...it looking closer to KZ2 ; two things. 1)It's mostly a GOOD thing. We get games quicker , and they can put resources into other non visual things. 2) That's the sound of 5 year old hardware showing signs of slowing up. After Rage , KZ3 ,Crysis 2, possibly Uncharted 3 , etc. We'll never have games that look this good for a while. There's only so much you can do on limited hardware. They aren't game PCs people.
will run at or very close to 60 fps in single and multiplayer when it launches all thanks to sony pushing 3d...you can quote me on that. they render it twice for 3d tvs so us hdtv folks are gonna have buttery smooth gameplay and response time because of only 1 render in the frame buffer. Imagine what they could do at 30fps now. Can't wait to see GG new IP too.
Nah, not a chance. It will not be 60 fps. You really don't know what you're talking about.
Yea but you do right...some wierdo on the internet who likes to pose as a sony ceo...i'll be sure to listen to you.
"(the controls) still have that heft." That's good to hear. The video of it with the Move however, it's super quick and twitchy. It's gonna be interesting to see how it all turns out. I really hope people shut up about the controls this time.
KZ3 runs at 30fps you fucking douche.
When they put stardust hd in 3d it upped the performance of the 2d version of the game dramatically so i think killzone 3, in 2d, will run between 30-50 or 60 fps variably like gow 3. If you watch the multiplayer trailer you can see some parts the framerate gets really smooth. Maybe i was wrong about 60fps at all times but it'll run high framerates in 2d mode. *edit - just watched it again and i think now maybe they slowed down the last part to make the framerate look smooth...hope i'm wrong but we'll see. Still getting it though.
