Killzone 3 versus Crysis 2: HD Video Comparison

GB writes: "Killzone 3 and Crysis 2, when you hear about these games the first thing that pops in your mind is that both are visual benchmarks for the platforms they are being released on. Guerilla's managing director, Hermen Hulst, has stated Killzone 3 will use close to 100% of the PS3's power. And that is true since Killzone 3 does look a notch ahead of Killzone 2. On the other hand we have Crysis 2. A behemoth in the visuals department, the game is said to surpass the original game graphically and have we have noted that combat in the game will be "catastrophically beautiful"."

Extremely low resolution? Check.
No actual comparison? Check.

"Let's put two videos of early builds of each game beside each other and call it news"

gameseveryday2852d ago

Check the video. Its HD..I dont believe people cant see Youtube HD written in the video. :S

Motorola2852d ago

Youtube HD doesnt mean the video IS HD. I can render a 360p video for 1080p. Youtube wouldnt notice and itll look like crap.

SnuggleBandit2852d ago

The screenshots are horrible quality thats for sure...both games look better than that

Stop complaining the video is fixed.

Now this is a hard comparison. Both games look amazing, and it's too close to call, I have to wait until I get them both early next year.

Now from those videos the multiplayer goes to Crysis to me, simply because of all the color, while Killzone looks like the net gen filter in Uncharted 2. But Killzone's multiplayer looks a lot more enjoyable and fun than Crysis.

piroh2852d ago (Edited 2852d ago )

since i'm a PS3 owner i can get both
..but now i'm voting for Killzone 3, Crysis 2 simply can't push PS3 to it's limits because the game is multiplat

More garbage from Gamebolt.

Make sure to click " +" and give them a "WTF?" story quality.

Darkstorn2852d ago

Both games are far from being finished. What gives?

You need to check the site since there are two videos in HD and they seem alright to me.

knightdarkbox2852d ago (Edited 2852d ago )

I just read the latest article from Crytek and how they're saying that Crysis 2 will literally push the PS3 to its limits. honestly it could go either way. Also remember that Killzone 2 was nice but very linear, they could just have awesome looking backdrops. While Crysis is going to be open world rendering all that is seen on the fly. So I say technically Crysis 2 is probably going to be more advanced and better game.

go back to your other account now

da305kratos2852d ago

dont expect crysis 2 to have the same kind of open world environment that crysis had, it ain't happening. Especially since consoles are in the mix now....Also, Killzone wasn't comepletely linear as people make it out to be...Moreover, i'm sure GG knows the PS3 better than Crytek...

hilliat27832852d ago

According to the posts that have come up since KZ3's showing the game will be a lot more open. Also all of the videos show much more open enviroments.

TheXgamerLive2852d ago

the ps3's so called best exclusives are a joke in this respect, their "ALL" linear. The ps3 doesn't come close to being the best. The ps3's only advantage is the disc space that the BR gives it, the ps3 is underpowered and it's so called exclusives are ok, but extremely linear. gow3, kz 2&3, wow u couldn't be anymore linear.

the ps3 and the xbox 360 both have their short comings, but to try and glorify the ps3 as something that's it's not is a joke.

The ps3 it only does linear exclusives:)

Doesn't sound good does it, so seriously let's chil with the console BS no matter who you support.

Roonie2852d ago

Ps3 exclusives are linear?


Alanwake? Conviction? Halo? ehhh

zootang2851d ago (Edited 2851d ago )

I don't think he ever played Killzone 2

Nyxter2851d ago

The only thing is i can acreate a program to max out anything... alll it does is duplicate itself - to find it go onto, you will just need to put it into the right language... Its all about how to use the machine efficiently... ofcourse you can 'max out' a machine just to make it sound good however its whether its been efficient.

yeah this is pretty pointless right now since NEITHER are final builds man. c'mon now.

Death24942852d ago

Now if Crytek decides to launch this game alongside Killzone3, than I'm not picking it up until later. But if they release it a couple of months later than Killzone3 than I'll pick it up. Crysis already has the PC crowd but it's going to be hard to convince people go give up Reach or Killzone3 for their game.

Christopher2852d ago (Edited 2852d ago )

Gah. Not another idiotic 'HD' video comparison where it's two very SD videos crammed into one.

Anyone making a decision on this is an idiot. There's just not enough to compare at that size and the way the various gameplay elements are thrown together.

marinelife92852d ago

Crysis 2 looks like a generic shooter to me. I'm still not seeing the hype. Rage looks better than Crysis 2 in my opinion.

DeathMetal2852d ago (Edited 2852d ago )

looks just like the last one and LOL at the post above saying killzone is not that linear .

Going solely on the dismissive, early comments; I take it Crysis looked better than the Ps3 exclusive.

I'm going with Crysis 2 on this one..

Spaghett2852d ago (Edited 2852d ago )

Yeah Crysis 2 looks better. In terms of gameplay and graphics.

Why? Just because you love your PS3?

ruibo2852d ago

both look nice, but i need a better comp to run them. QQ

NikoleSmash2852d ago

they both look pretty good
