City looks a tad worse
the lol king yet you are not funny. rip your account name.
I am not trying to be funny.
Natsu was being sarcastic. And you're wrong. City looks better just not a huge difference.
The graphics look similar but slightly improved upon. I cannot wait for this one! It could be a possible GOTY candidate. If only all superhero games could be this good. Maybe the people who made this game could do something that's never been done before: make a truly good Superman game!
Harley looks more like an underage pop star now.
No, Batman and harly look younger, plus everything looks cleaner now instead of the gritty look of the previous title. That could be good or bad.
Why'd they change Harly Quinn? She looked fine the first time.
This should be more of a design comparison rather than graphics.
it's just not as greasy as a double-down anymore.
This isn't the full game. I'm certain it will look better then Asylum
Doesn't look much of a change. Yeah the levels will be "larger" but there aren't any marked improvements.
i noticed that too. Hopefully thats just something they made to show off, and nothing near a final product
Harley is hot!
Nah. Arkham Asylums outdoor environments look murky. The new games city environment looks clear and sharp. You could argue that the murky art style fits the story better, but I think it's a graphical upgrade.
We need HD images to tell better.
Harley looks different and I like how everything is looking so far... would say a years worth of polishing will make this game golden. Kinda strange tho that there already done yet they just announced it about a month ago.
It was announced at last year's VGAs.
You know after they said in interviews about the detective vision being the worse decision they ever made it's surprising to see it again. I mean it was pointless to not play the entire game in detective mode other than the beautiful environments.
Really they said that? I loved everything about that game especially detective mode. I thought the way they used it was fantastic.
they were going to tone it down.
It looks good that everyone's not all made out of plastic this time but damn, they NEED to change Harley. I could barely deal with her new 'sexy' look in AA, now she just looks like a desperate teenage whore. Her original design from the animated series and comics is so much cooler, iconic and even sexier than anything they've done since, especially this horrible 'hawt' goth chick look.
"now she just looks like a desperate teenage whore" Um, just the way I like them? Except now you can substitute teenage for co-ed.
Mmmm.. Desperation turns me on.
you know this game isn't out until end of 2011 right? Arkham Asylum when it was first announced looked wank and no one cared about it until it blew everyone away
it's really annoying that these stupid graphic comparisons are being submitted & approved as news comparing a completed game to a game a year away from release.
"it's really annoying that these stupid graphic comparisons are being submitted & approved as news comparing a completed game to a game a year away from release..." using the exact same game engine. They look the same and will do when AC is completed, comparisons are pointless. Only difference I can see is the lighting has been worked on.
I think it looks great so far, but I like Quinn the way she used to be (much hotter)
Looking good. Not a dramatic improvement so far but the first game had great visuals anyway. With plenty of development to be done before it's released no doubt it will turn out even better.
Um this is dumb the game is a year away (a full year) seriously? I like the change in character thought? (IDK what to call it) I'm referring to Harley, I like it.
the lady with the blond hairs looks purdier now, i wanna say hello to her bewbs
Damn tho I said it before but does the new Harley ever remind me of Jeanette from Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines(AWESOME GAME...before vampires were gay thanks to twilight).
Underworld evens the odds, we can use that to completely ignore that movie with the sparkled "vampire" freak in it.
mmmm Kate Beckinsale
Wait! We need a 360 to PS3 comparison. You see the little pixel dot on the 3rd line of the 500th parameter of the cape, when it waves in this specific direction, it looks so much better on 360! Therefore 360 is king! /sarcasm
looks awesome but Harley Quinn looked much better (more devilish & crazy) in arkham asylum.
I would so Bone the new Harley Quinn she kinda looks like Tara Reid
I reckon Id rather bone Harry Reid than Tara Reid. I reckon Harry Reid's gots nicer bewbies
Mm Harley Quinn looks smoking hot. I cannot wait for this game to arrive
Arkham City is already a lot more polished, character models are improved, and the new cape is awesome. The new Detective vision is a lot more appealing to the eye too. And there's still a year of work.
lighting. It is significantly better in Arkham City. I can't tell it further apart, though Harley looks much better in the new game. Also, it seems like Batman's face has been modified just a tad-bit, at least his jaw area has.
I miss the old Harley Quinn :(
to be honest..... Both suck. graphically
Take off your fanboy googles, you'll see a lot better.
i pray that we aint majorly let down, hopefully they can do what they did in arkham asylum and just make it longer.
best graphics improvement: Harley got hot.
I think she was Always hot . i like the commics and BATMAN:TAS version of her :( i miss seeing her in her original costume
big improvement on graphics wise, as for art design on harley wtf??!!
They should give her the white face make-up and eye mask back. They should leave her hair blonde, maybe make the hair ties themselves red and black. They should get rid of the biker tattoos, and goth belt, chain and bracelets. I hope if nothing else they at least give her back the eye mask. That racoon/panda eye make up is not becoming at all. I photoshopped it into reality. Check it out. It's slightly more recognisable. http://darkraynerules.devia... :)
I've seen some other pics of them on IGN, and they're all related to the Joker. It kind of works, as nobody obsesses like Harley.
I'm sure there will be additional improvements, there's over a year left until the game's out anyway - I expect it to be well polished and designed.
As long as they don't tell me, you need an Nvidia card for a few bits of floaty paper.
I think the main improvement to this Batman model is the eyes, they appear more natural now. They always kind of bugged me in AA.
