Looks like a lot of smoke and mirrors to me. Looks like a more colour full MW2.

Rot_in_Fail2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

I don't find Crysis a bit interesting, nice package but empty. Super soldiers, aliens, NYC, yep never played anything like that.

Shackdaddy8362585d ago

@zootang - trust me, the crysis franchise plays nothing like CoD.

I hate how ppl have to compare every FPS to CoD. Its annoying.

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

So who's MP looks better? KZ2 or Cry? My vote KZ3.

@Shack

I don't like CoD so I don't see your point. It looks the same but plays different?

2585d ago
Shackdaddy8362585d ago

@zootang, Well, you would have to play it to know that ts nothing like CoD. The mechanics are completely different.

The only similarities are that it is fast paced and, by the looks of it, it will have a kill cam.

You will just have to trust me now but if you ever get this game then you will see that they are nothing alike.

Shackdaddy8362585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

@booch

lol. Have you even played Crysis? IDK about the frame buffer but basically everything else you said is great in Crysis.

Honestly, why is there even competition between the two games? They have nothing in common.

Plus, the Crysis engine was built to have graphics being the #1 focus. Obviously its going to have better graphics than KZ. That being said, KZ is still going to be very amazing gameplay wise and graphics wise.

This video is early beta used to test networking and catch bugs. They aren't even showing the graphics that are going to be in the actual game.

"Plus, the Crysis engine was built to have graphics being the #1 focus. Obviously its going to have better graphics than KZ. That being said, KZ is still going to be very amazing gameplay wise and graphics wise."

What the hell?

All that matters is what is on the screen. Killzone 2/3 destroys Crysis in every area except:

* Resolution on PCs
* High rez textures on PCs

The Crysis guys love to put out silly tech demos and screenshots to hype up their fanbase, but their actual in game graphics aren't in the same league as Killzone 2/3.

InTheKnow2585d ago

I have to say I wasn't suspecting it to look that good. Obviously you have to take the cam footage for what it is but the level design with all the glass and water running looked great.

There was alot of collision detection problems and strange bugs like when he broke the glass and half of it disappeared but they do have time to try an tighten the whole thing up...it is a beta after all but I'm curious to see this in HD. The guns and background sound effects sound really good as well. Great sense of speed when he/player ran or climbed something.

All in all a decent showing with lots of potential. Hope to see some hd game play soon...when is this suppose to launch anyways???

tacosRcool2585d ago

I thought Crysis 1 was good and so was Warhead, but is Crysis 2 worth it? I know its gots nice graphics but I wonder what else will set it apart from the pack

cmrbe2585d ago

Guys, I think this is the console version. PC will be different. I am getting it for PC.

STONEY42585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

"Plus, the Crysis engine was built to have graphics being the #1 focus."

All engines are kinda made for that focus. The gameplay is the game itself, not the engine. You could say that Crysis itself was built for graphics being the main focus though (even though I would disagree).

"All that matters is what is on the screen. Killzone 2/3 destroys Crysis in every area except:

* Resolution on PCs
* High rez textures on PCs "

Another person who has actually never played Crysis...
Let me tell you something. The main thing about Crysis isn't even the textures. Yeah, alot of them are godly (wood texture = O.O, and the texture resolution of each grass blade is like 1024x1024 or something close), but the crazy amount of lighting, ambient occlusion, per-object motion blur, physics, destructibility, shaders, insanely smooth soft-shadows, ect. is what makes it look so good. Killzone... has barely any of those, except lighting and post processing. Killzone basically revolves around those two.

"The Crysis guys love to put out silly tech demos and screenshots to hype up their fanbase, but their actual in game graphics aren't in the same league as Killzone 2/3."

The in-game graphics are actually better than what the videos and screenshots look like. I'm pretty sure if Crytek released bullshots and videos, we wouldn't have things like this, which prove that Crytek isn't full of BS.

really suggest watching both in HD if you can.

hesido2584d ago

I should agree with Stoney.

Killzone has lots of baked textures. Crysis is mostly dynamic. That's why Killzone may seem to look better at places, but it is not as dynamic as Crysis. You realize lots of baking is in place in different lighting conditions..

Is this the game that's hyped to be the new console graphics king?

On to the next, on on to next one!

frankymv2585d ago

Agreed. This game doesn't even come remotely close to the masterpiece that is killzone 3.

DeathMetal2585d ago Show
Longrod_Von_Hugendon2585d ago

Oh you're talking about a PC graphics....yeah we're talking about consoles. And on consoles CryTech isn't showing much in the way of anything new. It looks like just another shooter.

DeathMetal2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

because killzone is so innovative and fresh. KZ3 looks exactly like KZ2 same boring gameplay with a jet pack, same washed out graphics that are all grey and brown, same weak looking explosions, with same looking enemies that all look the same. if anything is just another shooter it is KZ, shoot form the hip hide behind box get force fed down narrow corridor or outside path rinse repeat. Yep, never seen that before.there is NOTHING KZ does gameplay wise that is anything new or special, it's only claim to fame was shitty " realistic to PS3 fanboys controls"

fooltheman2585d ago

@DeathMetal

One reaction: hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahaha
You should play it before you make invalid assumptions...

Arnon2585d ago

So then what does Killzone 2 do that no other shooter does and still doesn't do?

CoxMulder2584d ago

@arnon

Pushing console graphics to the limit, for one..

hazeblaze2585d ago

It does look like a more vibrant COD graphics wise, but it looks great. Can't wait to get it. Looks a bit glitchy and I noticed some texture pop-in, but that may be b/c it was running on the 360 too.

ct032585d ago

Underwhelming to say the least. If the first Crysis wasn't so awesome I wouldn't care at all about Crysis 2. As it is, I still have a little bit of hope that it may not completely suck.

wwm0nkey2585d ago

Hey sweet im in that video :D

billbox20102585d ago

crysis 2 looks better than greyzone 3 IMO.

likedamaster2584d ago

I like how they streamlined the controls for console. Map I played on seemed too small for Crysis type of gameplay, though. Prefer map style of Crysis 1.

Anyone that's played enough of the first one will start getting kills in no time. Be warned, no type of auto-aim from what I noticed <--sucks being that you're playing with a controller.

Not my kind of multiplayer, but I'll get it on PC for the story, graphics(:P), and because I've bought every Crysis day 1.

FrigidDARKNESS2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

the game play and graphics looks amazing and its running on the 360. lots pf color and greenery in the game it doesn't have that drab gray/brown color like KZ3.

TheBlackSmoke2585d ago

Unprovoked KZ3 dig lol. Halo:Reach didn't quite do the trick then?

plb2585d ago

Yes, because the arctic and scorched maps we've seen in KZ3 should be filled with colorful flowers and palm trees /s

TheBlackSmoke2585d ago

This guy can SEE gameplay annnd judge graphics by looking at low res off screen video. So obviously KZ3 is doomed.

So true, why isn't there more lush jungle environments in the artic....dam you god!!

Pennywise2585d ago

You are arguing with a guy that wants rainbows and colored power rangers in all of his games.

Baka-akaB2585d ago

cool then , enjoy the colorful boredom

maxcer2585d ago

well to be fair both crysis and kz3 are trying to achieve some moderate success. not a bad idea considering the last CoD sold over 10m copies. and these seem to be trying to emulate that gameplay experience.

hazeblaze2585d ago

It's clear you haven't played either franchise, since neither emulate COD... both surpass it from a gameplay perspective.

pixelsword2585d ago

I would suggest that we all wait until the final game is out; it may turn out that both games are equally impressive.

Get me in that! Fkn beautiful.

FrigidDARKNESS2585d ago

i signed up for the beta but wasn't one of the people chosen. They explain that the beta will become public and those who signed up will get to play.

xg-ei8ht2585d ago

Dam tons of screen tearing on the 360, kinda like vanquish.

I thought the 360 was easier to code?

FrigidDARKNESS2585d ago

dude its a beta not even the final build ....there is tons of screen tearing in the kz3 beta you know.

hazeblaze2585d ago

HA! There is NO screen tearing in the KZ3 beta! I have run into 2-3 glitchy matches, but there has not been A SINGLE graphical glitch whatsoever. Don't play yourself... KZ3 is champ in the visuals department.

crazydrummerlad12585d ago

and i havent encountered a single screen tear. and i catch those al the time because they bug me so much and i havent seeen any in the beta. not 1. stop foolin everybody

Snakefist302585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

"there is tons of screen tearing in the kz3 beta you know."

U just make urself like a FOOL!! by telling that.There is no screen tearing on Killzone 3.

Well Im gonna buy both Crysis 2 and Killzone 3.Both games looks fun.

kaveti66162585d ago

I thought you weren't a fanboy. what happened to you?

maxcer2585d ago

seeing as we haven't seen the ps3 build yet we can conclude that it probably looks worse. the ps3 track record would suggest that the ps3 version needs more time, like it always does.

hazeblaze2585d ago

Actually the PS3 build HAS been shown off already, and it looks better. PS3 was the lead platform. So you fail.

theEx1Le2584d ago

Actually they are developing them seperatly, at the same time, so you both fail.

plb2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

Console wise, KZ3 has this beat graphically IMO

EDIT: @below, that is why said console wise ;] PC will likely be amazing graphically, gameplay wise, I have no idea. To be honest, MP looks pretty boring and some of the sounds seem ripped right out of MW2.

KillerPwned2585d ago

If you compare PC version that is just common sense answer of no....But if its console well we are just gonna have to wait till both are released.

units2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

killzone is using lots of trick compared to crysis and reach
