Uncharted 2 visuals on Xbox360? Yes, indeed.

Castlevania: Lords of shadow is shaping up to be one of the most visually stunning games of this generation. (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, PS3, Xbox 360)

With the camera angle 500 feet away you can make anything look like U2 lol...

keep dreaming.. 5 years and counting

its pure flamebait, why couldnt he just say the game looks stunning and leave it at that.. oh thats right U2 is the graphical benchmark on consoles, but still flamebait.

"ts pure flamebait, why couldnt he just say the game looks stunning and leave it at that.. oh thats right U2 is the graphical benchmark on consoles, but still flamebait."

It isn't flamebait. The author mentioned that he wrote an article in June and he listed five games (Lords of Shadow is one of them) that do have the potential to match the best visuals seen in many PS3 exclusives. Also Uncharted 2 is the graphical benchmark on consoles so comparing it to Uncharted 2 is rational.

"People on this site will automatically react negatively to any comparison made with the almighty uncharted 2 and any hint at it being better than it.

Then people might understand that graphics don't make a great game, only add to one. "

so youre OK with the comparisons then you go on about how graphics dont make a great game? and what "hints"? we have eyes too you know and its lame cuz none of the games compared to U2 come close to it.. EVERYTIME. its just for hits.

It should be telling that every game coming out keeps getting compared to Uncharted 2 (nearly a year old), God of War III (several months old), and Killzone 2 (over a year and a half old)...

We've all heard this "as good looking as Uncharted 2" hype before. Don't believe it until you see it, and I've definitely not as good looking as U2. it's a beautiful game, but not even close to U2.

Rational or not it's definitely not reality.
Uncharted 2 is clearly the better looking game.

How many articles are we going to get like this? The only, at least so far, games that surpass PS3 exclusives are other / newer PS3 exclusives.

The only reason why people react this way is because we have eyes and we look at the screens and videos and we played Uncharted 2. it's freaking clear as day none of these games match up. If it did then I would be impress. At the moment it's just FUD and flamebait trolling for hits.

Uncharted 2 can hang with most pc games IMO, and I play all my pc games on max settings.

It's always ok to make comparisons with games...especially comparing it to such a good looking game. And of course graphics don't make a great game. Are you trying to argue otherwise?

I've never been obsessed with graphics in my games...thats why games like mario kart looks a hell of a lot better than modnation racers. I like visually pleasing games, don't care about the specs.

"Uncharted 2 visuals on Xbox360? Yes, indeed"

No, indeed. The animation isn't even close to uncharted 2. The character model here is too far away and you can't see a high level of detail on it. The character model doesn't even seem to get affected by water or snow unlike uncharted, Nathan actually gets wet and covered in snow. Look at the environment (bushes) in the video, it doesn't even move (or react) when he runs through it! My opinion is UC2 looks better not to mention GOW3, KZ2 (KZ3). Your opinion is this looks on par (article author) "Uncharted 2 visuals on Xbox360? Yes, indeed", so who's right?
pustulio  +   1463d ago
I seriously was going to say that PS3 fanboys will start bashing this and saying it's impossible and bla bla bla the usual BS But i watched the video and it's not like UC2.

I'm not the biggest PS3 fan but i'm sorry 360 comrades this is not like UC2, it does look good but to be honest it doesn't look like or better than UC2.

LAME... comparing a multiplat game on x360 that is probably, the same as the the PS3 version, with an Exclusive PS3 game? Please, that's not make any favor to the x360...
LastDance  +   1463d ago
Ok, im surprised none of you fanboys have actually brought up the REAL argument here.

Castlevania (Like God Of War) has a fixed camera position. Meaning that A LOT of bits can merely be rendering CGI 2D plains as oppose to full 3D like in Uncharted.

That is why this whole argument is null. Without a full rotatable camera, you can't judge what is great graphics and what is a great smokescreen.

Heavy Rain looks garbage compared to Uncharted 2. Heavy Rain has some great looking character models but it so unpolished it terms of the level design. Some levels look good, others just don't mix right at all and look dated.

Uncharted 2 looks so good because of the polish that went into it and some amazing textures. Also all the big set pieces, any game can look good but for an action/shooter game these days they need those type of big set pieces that will set the game apart from others.

you can't really compare Heavy Rain and Uncharted 2 because they're both opting for a different feel...

"Heavy Rain has some great looking character models but it so unpolished it terms of the level design"

is that it?
JUST GREAT LOOKING CHARACTER MODELS?
you must have not played Heavy Rain...saying its garbage, 95% of the time I was playing it, didn't feel like I was playing a game because it was so realistic actually TOO REALISTIC (it's not meant to follow the rules of your traditional game, it's about real life )

"but for an action/shooter game these days they need those type of big set pieces that will set the game apart from others."

So what about art? Castlevenia is very very artistic. Trying not to look at videos of Castlevenia because I don't want to spoil it, the art really stands out in that game.

KZ2
UC2
Heavy Rain
GOWIII all offer a different vibe in regards to the graphics but each one is better than the other in terms of graphics.

Next up is GT5.

@ sony
yea ok kid, like u2 and gow3 didn't have excellent gameplay to match... i'll go as far to say a high caliber ps3 exclusive usually has better GAMEPLAY and better GRAPHICS than anything on the 360... wait until they fix the stuff in k2 and release k3 then go back and look at reach, and OPEN YOUR EYES, i just bought the 360 slim (second 360) first one broke 3 months after the ps3 came out and i made a decision to get the ps3, always loved the xbox 1 and ps2 now i like both now once again, but the 360 is simply outdated, not to mention the extra 78mb of ram sone released for the devs to use, that puts it over the 360 specs, and the type of ram in the cell is twice as fast as the 360's anyways... again i love both consoles and 360 games can def look great, but the astonishing looking ones are on the ps3... and look it up, there's a video that explains the cell architecture ram thing, so if u have 256mb of ram in the 360 and 256mb of ram in the ps3 (which is now around 330) the cell architecture and new ram pipelines transfer data twice as fast and that's being modest. before the disagrees look for the video

Wheres the logic in this? Castlevania runs better on PS3 according to many reviews and this game doesnt look as good as UC2. So it looks as good as Uncharted 2 on 360? As Das Bunker said 5 years and counting. As usual PS3 exclusives are still the benchmark on consoles. Funny how 360 fans knock them but are dying to have a 360 game reach that level. Guess they're green with envy.

Man, who even approved this? We're having stupid conversation over whether or not Castlevania looks decent compared to Uncharted 2. Why can't you accept the fact that THE GAME LOOKS FANTASTIC and move on??
ABizzel1  +   1463d ago
The environments yes, everything else no.

It's comparable on one aspect of Uncharted and that's the environment.

The character models are only detailed in cutscenes, and the camera is zoomed so far out it's hard to get a good look at them.

The game looks good, but not U2 quality just yet. That goes to show how much quality went into Uncharted 2, it's nearly a year old and still has little competition outside of other PS3 exclusives for best looking graphics.

IMO there's the Uncharted level which includes games like (Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, Flower, Gran Turismo 5, and Crysis PC). Those games represent the best of their genre and platform as far as graphics are concerned. After that then the next tiers come such as FF13, Mass Effect 2, Assassin's Creed, LBP, Forza 3, etc...

And Come 2011 there will be more games entered into that top tier.

-idiots

no game on 360 beats Uncharted 1 in terms of graphics, a few match it but none clearly surpasses it

Dynamic motion blur, the same Anti-Aliasing technique that Crysis 2 uses, increased water shaders, an enormous draw-distance that doesn't hinder any aspects of the game, v-synced, etc.

"With a framebuffer setup ideally suited to living entirely within the GPU's attached eDRAM, Bungie can enjoy optimal processing conditions, allowing it to really go to town. The very first campaign level is an effective showcase for the key revolutions that Bungie has made on a technical level. As Noble Team first touches down, you're treated to the richness of the terrain, and the sheer scale offered by the mammoth draw distance - which Bungie reckons to be four times higher than Halo 3."

I mean... what part of this article did NOT talk about the technical aspects of the game? It honestly sounds like you opened the article, went to page 4 and read the last paragraph.

"Evolutionary in many respects, sure, but where it counts Halo: Reach is the revolution we've been waiting for: a genuinely superb game with a combined feature set that pushes Xbox 360 performance to the bleeding edge."

And even then, it still states that it's one of the most technical titles out there, so I'm not sure how it doesn't support his claims.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1461d ago
@Arnon
Wrong, the author is clearly compairing the game to older Halo titles when it calls it a revolution. The author in fact never compairs the game to anything other then other Halo games. If he were saying that the game was technically better than any other console shooter then why in 4 pages of words he never says it?

You must have read the whole thing, saw one word, and thought you had me. Sir reading comprehension must not be your thing.
Shoko  +   1463d ago
No, sorry.

The author pointed out ONE moment of that video (1:30) where the game looked visually impressive. You shouldn't have to do that. If that game is up there with PS3 standards, it's going to have to look like Uncharted 2 ALL THE TIME. Also, that part used a lot of lighting - lighting looks great, period. There's some lighting in WII games that make them look almost 360 quality, but we know they're truly not up there. It's just the effect the light has on our eyes. Notice the darker, duller parts of that video - they didn't look as impressive did they? Exactly.
AhmadVGArabia  +   1463d ago

You are wrong. The author wanted you to skip to 1:30 because those visuals looked similar to Uncharted 2 colorful visuals. If you watched the whole video you will see that the game look stunning in almost all areas.

And did you not see the beginning of the video? The areas that are brown and redish? Doesn't look amazing at all. And by "ONE moment", I meant one area, cause that area continues on for the rest of the video. But you get the point. There's a reason why the author told you to skip to that part. He didn't want you to see how unimpressive the beginning of the video looked.

But like frostypants said below, I agree that it's an amazing-looking game. Best multi-plat I've seen IMO. It's just still not up there with GT5, U2, and GOW III.

second thing that floored me down were physics on the train. damn, i could almost feel the real train shaking and every curve blended so wonderfully into movement.

castelvania looks wonderful, i mean really wonderful. but, compared to uc2 still crap

Nonsense. This is where people go way off the deepend. Saying Castlevania looks like crap compared to Uncharted 2 is pure delusion. It may or may not quite stack up to Uncharted 2, but it is definitely close.

LOL when I saw castlevania I said"wow these graphics are bad but the blur effects are really nice"

Anyone that says castlevania has amazing graphics probably have not played uncharted 2(hd), crysis 1 max settings(hd), killzone 2(hd), GOW3(hd), etc...

Implying any other game looks better than uncharted 2 that is released.

.
Why can't they compare anything beside uncharted or ps3 exclusive.
Maybe a 360 game.
frostypants  +   1463d ago
Same reason every FPS is compared to Crysis.
theonlylolking  +   1462d ago
Crysis does not look as great as it did years ago.
jacobdevos  +   1463d ago
it really astonishes me
that they didn't include uncharted's silky smooth animation system as 'visuals'. Because this games animations look about as fluid as a bed of rocks.

Why do some PS3 fans have to attack anything that isn't a PS3 exclusive? I don't get that.

The animations in fact look extremely good in Castlevania Lords of Shadow. You don't have to be so defensive of PS3 exclusives that you lie about other great games.

I couldn't give a shit about graphics if the gameplay doesn't match up.

I own both consoles and love me some Uncharted but I seen games on the 360 that are on par with Uncharted 2. Playing on my 55 Panasonic Plasma, I can clearly see that games like Alan Wake are just as good graphically.

sureeee
nycredude  +   1463d ago
Dude Alan Wake isn't even the same resolution as Uncharted 2. What a fail bro.
Skadoosh  +   1463d ago
what does resolution have anything to do with it? You kids don't understand nothing. MGS4 is an amazing looking game and that's not even 720p.
ExplosionSauce  +   1463d ago
MGS4 is 768p
cgoodno  +   1463d ago
Perhaps in your opinion they look as good as one another, Skadoosh, but technically they just don't add up.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1463d ago
Your opinion. Mine is that you are full of it.
JonnyBigBoss  +   1463d ago
Misleading title. Castlevania looks good but not even close to Uncharted 2.
Motorola  +   1463d ago
its a forest, thats the ONLY WAY it looks like uncharted. Uncharted 2 was more than a forest....
