These five games will set the new standard for the best looking games of 2007. Not only will these graphics bring innovation, they will take gaming to the next level!
Agreed, I would say that those are my top 5 as well. I might have switched a number or two but overall nice list.
For sure have to agree with the whole list. They all look great and the only one I can't play will be Crysis. Cause my PC would probably combust if I even inserted the disc.
I would wait until sometime around december wit a list like this. Most of the big titles are'nt released yet. I think it's called sensationalistic journalism =)
Why is it only shooters?
Need I say more. I know combat in ME has alot of shooting but its an RPG at heart. Also I don't know of a game that doesn't have shooting in it that is gonna look as good as any of these, you might say Heavenly Sword but I still don't think that game beats any of these 5, maybe if they had a top 6 it would be in there.
cuz...other games suck?
Not a game on that list that should be there in my opinion.
then what the hell would you put on there?
Not to be a d1ck, but im interested to see your picks.
I would realy like to know why you don't think it should, and what other 5 games commin out this year look better than Crysis?
That was a typo. i forgot the n't. My bad.
Soooo... he's writing an article where the majority of the games haven't even been released (maybe save TrU Bioshock)? Why not just do a comparison of box art.
PS3 won't have 2 of those games. 360 won't have 1....maybe.
i hate how im playing gears and sometimes the game doesnt load all the textures and the characters and BG look really low res...
That's done on purpose to cut down on load times. It's apparently going to be used a lot in the Warfare mode in UT3 to help make levels even larger.
Yeah - that bugged me about Gears as well. The used streaming textures, poorly if you ask me.
The low-res tectures only lasts for about 3 seconds when a level starts, whats the problem?
Well...I will at least get the opportunity to enjoy 4 out of the 5 with my PC and PS3 setup! I just can't wait to get my hands on Bioshock in FULL HD 1920 x 1200! Amp
Mass Effect looks good when they are doing up close dialog, but everything else is just good not really good.
"2. Unreal Tournament 3 The best multiplayer online shooter ever! Now Epic comes out with Unreal Tournament 3 and does it look so good. The game uses Unreal Engine 3 and get this, from the Official Xbox Magazine, UT3 makes 'Gears of War [look] ugly'." Thankfully, Ill be able to play it THIS November. :)
on my PC and then on my 360 soon
I dont think Mass Effect looks that great, the character models look good, but the backrounds dont dont have as much going on and seem plain. R&C future should have been on that list
I agree. The backgrounds are uninspired, and the characters are so stiff and glossy they look more like action figures. I wouldn't consider this for the top 5 in a million years. Look at the texture on the second image for the neck area, this is next gen? You kidding me?
American devs PWN Japanese devs. It's true. EAT IT.
hideo kojima...he makes awesome games...his MGS franchise is top-notch and i liked the zone of the enders games too
should be on there. I mean it looks like a Pixar movie practically. But those games do have some pretty graphics.
R&C:ToD looks amazing. And as long as we're including games that have yet to be released, Uncharted looks pretty good, too -- but it seemed like the article focused on shooters??
best looking game beside Crysis is UNCHARTED!! I think he is a 360 fan for sure.. Uncharted has one of the most detailed environments , amazing lighting,textures,animations. all of them better than Bioshock,mass effect and COD4.. and their water effect is in same level as Bioshock with some more physics...
your being completely unreason stop talking
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, the most anatomical and graphically impressive game to hit a console ever. Wasn't mentioned? And what about Ratchet and Clank it has Pixar graphics for goodness sakes.. and why are all the games shooters? If anyone says ME isn't a shooter, look at it's core game play elements and get back to me.
This was only PC games Oo Also it is a blog.. I thought the name of this site was "News for Gamers" and not "Opinions as news for gamers"
What about heavenly sword, lair and uncharted? :D Those games put the UE3 based games in the past in terms of graphics. @DethWish: yea, you're right - i forgot to add PC; changed it
Nope on PC, not 360, I don't see Crysis anywhere on 360 :P Also for CoD4 he mentioned monitor not TV :o
I am a Masseffect fan.. and I will get another 360 for it (my first one is RRODed) but its not visualy more impressive than UNcharted.. and u idiot must see some Uncharted SCREENS .. its the best looking game in 2007 for consoles.. believe it or not.. it has the most advance environment design in same level as Crysis.. Bioshock is one of the best Single player FPS of all time.. I love that too.. but on my PC with Keyboard and mouse..
mass effect and bioshock?? are u kidding me bioshock is full of just black spots lol with no detail - even tho its black at least show some wall or ground but nope cant do that - the crap60 wouldnt be able to handle all the detail and level space hahaha the face animations on heavenly sword ruin mass effect - that guy just looks sooo [email protected] - honestly - how can u stare at that guy through out the whole game - R&C tools looks stunning..hmm how did that not make the list
*R&C tools looks stunning..hmm how did that not make the list* i could use the same reasons sony fanboys used to bash halo 3....here it is "eeew those graphics are too cartoony, u call that a next-gen game?" now im no fanboy, in fact, im really looking forward to plaing mgs4 and killzone 2, but im just showing u how stupid fanboys and their comments look and if u cant learn from that, then i guess there no hope for u....
1- Crysis 2- Uncharted:DF 3- Unreal tournament 3
Great list dude! XBOX 360 games are killing PS3 as we speak!
Unreal Tournament 3 has the best graphics.. they r UNREAL... amazing ... beautiful... colorful... simply the best graphics u have ever seen on a ps3, 360 console, and pc Unreal Tourny 3 rock on!
all shooters very biased
mass effect isn't going to be a shooter. It's an RPG
I totally agree with this list and Crysis may have a bad story(I hope it has good presentation) but it will totally pwn UT3(I bet the sinlgeplayer is probably even worse, but UT is primarily a MP game) from the screenshots I have seen. Cooler 45nm processors cant soon enough
Has anybody seen real gameplay or Unreal?.
SAY YES I'V SEEN GAMEPLAY OR NO I HAVE NOT.
i totally agree with the list except for one thing bioshock is 3rd??? from my point of view mass effect looks a lot better than bioshock
No one of these games is on the market now, except BIOSHOCK. It's quite forum-esque to judge and rate games still to come. It would be quite ridiculous if they run inconstantly 30fps or less, don't you agree? Nice graphics are ok, but without a constant framerate (and it's all to prove) a game it's no-game.
No credibility there, just some Microslaves fan boy opinion! Well I have an opinion too; 1-Killzone 2 2-MGS4 3-Heavenly Sword 4-Uncharter-Drakes Fortune 5-Haze
ur missing Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction a game since the first R & C on PS2 .. has NEVER disappointed when coming to graphics.. always having beautifully and amazing designed environments ... not to mention the kickass weapons/guns, gadgets, and fun the game delivers not once, twice, even three times... nope this is Ratchet and Clank 5 ... and Insomniac Games will bring it to us again this season rock on Insomniac Games and ur titles like Resistance: Fall of Man, Spyro 1-3 on the PS1, and Ratchet and Clank titles PS2-PS3 and rock on PS3
this is a blog and most of those games are not even out yet! Hey see this cool movie trailer! Looks like the best movie of 07!
and the thing is i get to play 4 of them on my 360.:)
And everyone else gets to play all of them on their PC. Good luck trying to play exclusive console games like those featured on the PS3.
mass effect bioshock cod4 UT3
lol where is World in Conflict?
Mass Effect doesn't have the overall graphical polish to be in the top five, it has good character models and facial detail but everything else is average. Bioware isn't even known for having awesome graphics in their games. Call of Duty 4 is only impressive when you factor in the 60FPS in my opinion. No Gran Turismo 5: Prologue and Ratchet and Clank Future hurt this list immensely, especially the omission of the former. List definitely seems biased and it's no surprise since it comes from an average Joe Blow blogger.
Lair might have okay gameplay and other problems but I still think it looks amazing. IMO, much better than Mass Effect and on par with COD4 (two totally different genre's but both games look equally nice).
why do you keep saying uncharted and other ps3 games have best graphics for console, ps3 is long outta pc and console category, so why put it in that place, the graphics on ps3 are top of the food chain against crysis and any other pc game, so why put your stupid pc games as if theyre so special, because theyre not ps3 runs next gen, pc never did by Aizen Sama
..couldn't of said it better myself, ps3 is in it's own league simple as that rock on ps3 ...oh yeah Aizen why you leave soul society lol =D
PCs are not limited to your "gens". They are in a constant state of evolution. You think anything on the PS3 is in the same league as a Crysis? Are you watching the videos on a Gameboy Advance or something? Besides using a console to play an FPS is like being an NBA star and playing in the wheelchair league.
why are they comparing a pc game to console games?
The order is obviously WAY off, but it does indeed house most of the best-looking games of this year. Too bad Gears was last year! It's still one of the best games around.
I think if you're going to make this kind of list you'd be better off waiting until the year is over. Judging mostly by screenshots and trailers just doesn't make much sense. Also, you should learn how to compose a sentence. ;)
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and Mario Galaxy both look great. The most real looking game isn't always the best looking game. I think they could make 3 and 4, if not 2 and 3. Neither can top Crysis, it appears, but both are beatuiful games that should be on that list. Bioshock looks good, but its graphics are a bit overhyped. I'm not sure it belongs on a list of games with the best graphics for all games comming out this year. The list isn't really bad, but its obviously biased to the games the author likes.
