Killzone 3 is Looking Like The 2011 Graphics King by Far

TQcast: Look around, no other game can top Killzone 3′s impressive graphics thus far. Recent images and videos clearly show Killzone 3 taking gaming graphics to a whole new level. Not even Crysis 2 can match Killzone 3. Are we looking at the 2011 Graphics King? (Killzone 3, PS3)

i think rage crysis can give it a good ass run for its money or win
Nitrowolf2  +   1724d ago
Rage no
Crysis 2, may be
BrianG  +   1724d ago
Agreed, Crysis looks pretty good so far, but Rage is too bland for me. It has B E A utiful environments, but I'm just not feeling the game on a whole.
Hellsvacancy  +   1724d ago
I shall buy Rage day 1 but i agree its shouldnt b compared with Crysis and KillZone, Rage looks too much like BorderLands, has that cartoon look about it, doesnt bother me i shall still buy it

I think crysis 2 on pc looks amazing. But killzone 3 has such a more immersive action experience. But the console versions of rage and crysis 2 don't compare the phenomenon that is what geurilla created

Pistolero  +   1723d ago
wtf?...are you blind?... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Rage looks amazing and so far looks better than what i have seen of Killzone 3....but i will wait to pass final judgement...i still want to see the jungle level they talked about in killzone 3....all i know is that the multiplayer footage they showed of killzone 3 did not look very good to me...the artic level looked a lot better but i still think Rage looks better.
swinesucker  +   1723d ago
Seriously, GIVE IT UP! Rage is a 60 fps game nobody even knows if it going to do 720p for christ let alone even come close to what KZ3 is doing. God, you people are fucking idiots. No 60fps game has even come CLOSE to U2. GT5 is the ONLY contender.

Rage is planned for release in 2012, I think.

Unless something else comes and swoops the title.

But in the end, it looks mighty FINE!

What KZ3 excel the most at is the sense of the environment(atmosphere), never a shooter has made me feel so immersed into its world.
Shaman  +   1724d ago
Yes.It feels very alive duo to incredible animations.Its not that world is particulary geometry heavy,neither it has to be.For example UC2 has more complex geometry,with better and more varied textures but KZ3 IMO looks better because it just looks very real.And it has amazing lighting...
ULTIMATE_REVENGE  +   1724d ago
The lighting looks pretty poor imo and it is far from real.
Independent_Charles  +   1723d ago
revenge i thought you knew not make any sort of comment that might offend the sony fans. even if its your opinion and or fact.

if you dont lick the crack of kz's arse dont bother commenting.

maybe the comminuity will support kz3 better than kz2
Jazz4108  +   1723d ago
Its the only shooter ps3 has that's ok. 360 is the king of shooters and rpgs this gen.
mastiffchild  +   1723d ago
Silly comment. U1 and 2 say "hi", Warhawk does a little greeting dance and be prepared to be wowed when both SF5 and R3 land in the next eighteen months. Insomniac are leaving the series with a big push and SF is being properly rebooted witha massive budget. There are [plenty of great shooters, for all tastes, on both HD consoles. Exclusives and multis-take your pick but saying KZ is the only "OK" one on PS3 is just a lie.

Also the best JRPG I've played since either 360 or PS3 came out was Persona4 on the PS2. Go figure.
Hoje0308  +   1723d ago
Demon's Souls is better than any RPG on 360, IMO. Also, I think Uncharted is better than Gears and Halo has the art direction of a Disney cartoon. MS better start buying some exclusives, 'cause next year is looking pretty bleak.

Rage and Crysis 2, but I don't know about Gears of War 3.
k-Lan  +   1723d ago
Nobody really knows until we see some gameplay. I believe it'll be the best looking Gears by far. There will be tons of comparisons between both games early next year so let's just wait and see.

What's your problem with the Gears series anyway's? Is it the game itself or the fact that it's a 360 exclusive?

Sometimes i find it very hard understanding what goes through the brain of a hardcore Playstation supporter.
dragon82  +   1723d ago
My problem with Gears of War is the same problem I have with Halo this generation. They just feel generic and bland to me.
k-Lan  +   1723d ago

Killzone 2 & Resistance 2 come to mind as well. Honestly your response sounds fanboyish. What else would anybody expect from you anyways. No PS3 games are generic? Killzone 2 didn't feel generic but Gears 2 did? Call me unimpressed.

not a single game on xbox can compete with KZ....2 !

lol@the misinformed donkey talking about "linear corridor shooter" , and other fanboyz talking about "blurry mess" or "good for 2009" about kZ2, when not a single shooter can compete today on there conlole : even the multiplayer graphics are better than anything on xbox (fact)

and most important, unlike subxboxfanboyz said, the game is good ! (best fps competitive multiplayer GOTY), graphics matter, but gameplay matter more !

The only games I play on PC are Half Life mods and TF2. It doesn't change the fact Crysis 2 will be the best looking game 0f 2011. If you have to put a title like "console" in front of best looking to make it accurate then its not true.
KiRBY3000  +   1724d ago
Crysys 2 on MY pc certainly wont look as good as KZ3.
yamzilla  +   1724d ago
crysis 2
on PC will be quite a bit better looking than killzone 3, killzone 3 will be by FAR the best looking console shooter, there has yet to be a console shooter that can match killzone 2, crysis 2 looks pretty bad on console, and rage will not hold a candle to killzone 3, though the pc version of age may look better....maybe, all in all, killzone 3 looks incredible and I can not wait to play it!!!

Day one for me!
asgharagha  +   1724d ago
2011?i dont think so because i think uncharted 3 or next santa monica or quantic dream game can defeat it but im sure it will have best graphics at its release date(maybe with gt5)
AKA  +   1724d ago
Yes it's so far the best looking game for 2011
GG are great devs.
tiamat5  +   1724d ago
Ok, Why not? After all PS3 games are known for their graphical advancements for their game sequels e.g. Infamous to Infamous 2, LBP to LBP2, UC1 to UC2. So it's not so hard to believe that KZ3 could be a graphical powerhouse. I personally can't wait to see them top UC2 with UC3
coojo  +   1724d ago
crysis looks way better and came out in 2007 lol

Are you blind? Yes crysis look great On a hi end pc
But Killzone 3 look just much better, take a look to the video riot post 26.2.8
Photorealistic and very artistic

You can't see the color in Killzone 3 because you wearing a fanboy trolling hate 2006 glasses.
Take them off take a look to the video I point you to look and if you are not impress then maybe you forgot to take out you plan B eye contacs "the fanboy inside you"

i think it looks sweet but Socom4 looking as nice, just saying
Jeff257  +   1724d ago
Yeah KZ3 is looking great. But I also love the look of SOCOM 4 as well. I know Ill be buying both next year. Also inFamous 2 is looking absolutely amazing as well and yes I know it isnt technically a shooter. But show me one Open world game this gen that is looking that good. Cant be done because there just isnt one out yet that can compete.
ULTIMATE_REVENGE  +   1724d ago
Personally I think Crysis 2 looks much cleaner & better, and it's textures aren't a big blurry mess. KZ2 looked stunning for a 2009 game but for 2011 KZ3 pretty much looks exactly like KZ2 which is bad a thing.

If you take away the over exaggerated motion blur and the enormous amounts of glare, the game will look pretty bad especially the textures, the poor texture detail is what really hurts my eyes.

With the power of the PS3 I think GG could have achieved so much more, and if you don't believe me then just wait until you see Resistance 3, because that for sure will look 2-3 years better than KZ3.

I really doubt resistance will be the game to push the bar in graphics, never has before probably never will.

Just like I didn't expect the new Halo to be the best graphical game to date either. I am surprised by reach though, so maybe resistance will go out of the norm I guess, but insomniac tends to focus on gameplay over graphics
Gam3s4lif3  +   1723d ago
Same as bungie..they focus on story,gameplay, music (XD) and maps..not graphics but thts all gud..graphics are not always everything..imagine a bad game with really good graphics..tht will suck

He's dumb because he's not blind?

Tricks are used by every developer as sated by Vanquish's art director, some devs go out of their way and use tons of effects just to hide bad textures (GG etc).

The glare and motion blur in KZ2 & 3 is annoying and it messes up your eyes.

From what I've seen so far I think UC2 does a better job.
PS360PCROCKS  +   1724d ago
i never called anyone dumb first off. Secondly, if everyone uses tricks than why are you two complaining that KZ3 does it? and ok you don't like the motion and the glare, doesn't bother me, is your opinion worth more? Not really...so you just don't like how KZ3 looks than i guess? Get back to me...Oh wait nvm you're outta bubbles, you spent 5 trying to convince everyone KZ3 isn't impressive. Great use!

ps. I've always thought UC2 had the best graphics.

Crysis 2 PC yes, consoles no
"Personally I think Crysis 2 looks much cleaner & better, and it's textures aren't a big blurry mess."

Well, in my opinion Crysis 2 has worse looking textures and aliasing is all over the place. And I don't think that excessive use of normal mapping is helping Crysis 2 at all.
Look at the screenshot and tell me what is better looking than Killzone 3?
The gun? The textures? The Anti-Aliasing? The fire? The water?
I am dissapointed with Crysis 2. At least for now the console version is looking awful (compared to PC version).

EDIT: Damn, N4G just adds small versions of images!

Chris_TC  +   1723d ago
Its hardware requirements will be less demanding than Crysis 1, that's already been confirmed. And it makes sense because it needs to run on consoles which didn't get a Crysis 1 port precisely due to hardware requirements.

So anything half-decent will run Crysis 2.
tiamat5  +   1724d ago
I really don't understand how anyone can make any type of comparisons between these games. Cyrsis is cleaner? Why because it's shinier? Killzone 3 is on a war torn toxic planet, Crysis is a shiny future and Rage is a Mad Max desert wasteland. Three different graphical styles. Apples to oranges to bananas people. Don't see why it is so important for non PS3 owners to compare multi plats with exclusives. It's Infamous vs Prototype and GOW3 vs Dante's Inferno all over again.

One of the most obvious improvements in KZ3 is much better, sharper textures. Now I know you are hating on the game.

KZ3 isn't a blurry mess......I actually welcome the world war art style....To many games like Crysis, go for a shiny image of war but this isn't the case of a big war everything gets dirty and gritty......This games looks good
