An early look at this week's Xbox Live exclusive multiplayer demo and more.
That aiming was painful to watch...
wow man! which graphics will be better? Uncharted 3 or Crysis 2? Uncharted 2's visuals and effects are amazing! I love the water effect man! Crysis 2's lightening is incredible so does it's visuals! Which is the best? -Ninja Gaiden 3-is sick!:)
I can tell you -> Uncharted 3 - pretty simple
"We haven't seen Cry2 on console since GamesCon and honestly it looked pretty rough." A multipat who's preview code looked kind of rough just a couple of months back, against an exclusive with two strong titles already underneath it's belt. I'm going to give it to Naughty Dog this time around.
Yeah, you cherry picked that quote pretty well, forgetting to mention that he also says most of the graphical issues had been worked out. How about I cherry pick this quote? - 'Crysis 2 is clearly in the running for best looking console game out there this year'. I'm not really bothered how it looks on console as I'll be getting it on pc, but it made me laugh how you used that quote out of context.
"Crysis 2 is clearly in the running for best looking console game out there." Impressive indeed.
Uc3, or killzone 3, or even lbp2, just can't be matched by a multi, or xbox exclusive every single serious gamer know that....it's probably "running fir best looking game on 360" but that' s all, you can't do miracles with inferior hardware, even if xbox fznboy love to believe each time that it could be posdible one day "wait for halo3" ""waiy for alzn wake" etc.
HD console versions of Crysis 2 vs UC3 ps3? UC3 easily :)
LMAO Love the on console excuse. Just on PC but not consoles because it's known the PC is more capable. We seen it running on the 360 nothing matches this game visually just stop. Just because PC is more able doesn't mean you can try and defend PS3 exclusives like the console versions of these games can't be graphically unmatched as well. You keep bringing up PS3 exclusives because you're insecure about these products being better than PS3 exclusives in ways you think are the most important. You guys keep doing this because these new games are starting to negate your claims of PS3 being the most powerful console in the universe.
@Tina: lolwut? dude calm down for a sec. It's my honest opinion, from what I have seen UC3 looks better than this. But the PC versions will definitely look better. If you think the PC version won't look better than the console versions you are being delusional. Not sure what this 'you guys' refer to or what this 'insecurity' you speak of, this is just my opinion on the matter, nothing more nothing less. Heck I think Gears 3 look as good or better than crysis 2 personally, and graphics aren't only about the polygon count. And no on the consoles I will bet that UC3 and KZ3 will set new standards in visuals...I also fully expect RAGE to rock too and maybe even beat kz3 and UC3 SO get off your high horse, stop being paranoid and stop this childish posts. It's a waste of my time, keep your console warrior mentality to yourself
On consoles, UC. But on PC, any AAA game has better graphics
Just name 1 or 2...llol
@Ifone Metro2033, Dirt 2. Here we go, two.
Look fact is Crysis 2 is available to play on the Xbox 360 already, unless you have Uncharted 3 and are playing it right now shut up because it's a stupid argument. Crysis 2's multiplayer, needs to compared to KZ3's multiplayer if anything. As gamers can currently or could get there hands on both. As for which looks better who knows, I wouldn't like to be the judge I as would get hit by to many people and there console bias if I made a choice of either.
When games look this good I honestly don't think you can say definitively which game looks better. You might have your preference, but that is mostly going to come down to a preference for one art style over another. Killzone 3 is very stylized and doesn't really look realistic in the strictest sense of the word. It does have great lighting and textures, but it's overall look has a lot to do with its art. Crysis 2 goes for more of a real-world look. It also has great lighting, effects and textures. You might prefer the look of one over the other, but unless you are talking about the PC version with it's obviously much higher resolution and anti-aliasing I don't think you can really say for sure which of the two console games looks better. I think a lot of people confuse art with the more technical aspects of graphics. A lot of people are graphically drawn to certain games largely because of their art and they don't even realize it, they assume it's because the game is technically better when many times it is not.
the textures of this game are way above uc3. And for the kz3 peeps just get shot a few times like at the 15 sec mark in this vid shows what kz looks like within the next week somebody needs to do a comparasion. so tell both DF and LOT to get ready and add Bulletstorm to the mix
KZ3 takes the crown for best looking console FPS easily but I can see it going neck and neck against the PC version of crysis 2 since KZ3 looks better than crysis 1.
Keep dreaming buddy, KZ3 won't come close to the first Crysis let alone the 2nd, the consoles simply aren't powerful enough. The console versions on the other hand will obviously be closer, and I'm sure we'll have hundreds of comparisons between the 2 when they both release, with the usual crowd claiming victory regardless of the outcome.
Desoerated fanboyz disagree with fact only lol, it's sad...(the first part is obvious, for the pc comparisond, will see) [email protected], one of of the worst fanboy in denial here, they are always hoping for impossible things, and downplay ridiculously the real winners, dumb...you can't hope to see a wii game on par xith best xbox games, even thr best one, and it's the same thing since the beginning with xbox and ps3, evrn if they are more similar than wii...stop tzlking about xartoonish unchzrted grzphics, lightning in kz, you obvioulsy don't know what you are talking zbout, even xbox sites and magazines knows that uncharted, killzone, gid of war, eyc can't have competition on xbox.
"Crysis 2 is clearly in the running for best looking console game out there this year. It's the atmosphere and lighting that really impress...levels are huge, with a ton of routes and traversal options...and the constant shifts between darkness and daylight in Skyline, the level included in this week's demo, is particularly striking." From the videos I have seen I would have to agree with him, Crysis 2 is looking really good. It will definitely be one of the best looking games on consoles. I can't wait to see it maxed out on a good PC too.
but i will stick to Reach and Mw2... waiting for Gears 3.
I'll try out the demo, my hopes aren't too high.
wasn't aware the demo was coming to XBL until now. gonna be a busy day for me tomorrow with Dead Space 2 and this.
what's so special about this?:S
all these gameplay videos are such a buzzkill after seeing how awesome the video Crytek just released was. I guess ill have to wait till tomorrow to make my own judgement.
Wow, this looks far far better than the BETA gameplay which was floating around the net. Like I've said, the former Free Radical guys are doing the MP, so it should be lots of fun. Also love the HUD.
Hamburger123 I have to agree with you on this one.From the recent videos I have seen I can tell you that those where PC footage because theres a huge difference in graphics where the PC looked beautiful but the console version looks dubbed down alot.Still looks good but not that good.My big problem with this game is how much it reminds me of COD and Halo Reach.Its not a bad thing but its not a good thing where this game looks more generic to the two I mentioned.I will try the beta tomorrow and see if this game really is that good like from all the people who played the first beta played it or maybe its because theres nothing else out other then COD and Halo and there bored Im not sure but this game is looking grim to me right now.I think the Bulletstorm beta will outshine Crysis2 tomorrow but its nice to see that EA is giving us variety of games.DeadSpace2 ,Crysis2 and Bulletsorm.should be good day period.
They haven't shown recent PC footage yet. Devs even confirmed that. This is what PC footage looked like 6 months ago. : http://www.youtube.com/watc... As confirmed by this forum by a dev : http://crymod.com/thread.ph... That has been the only PC footage shown for Crysis 2.
Sorry But nothing has been confirmed what gameplay is on what.I have seen gameplay that look amazing and some that look horrible.Im just putting two and two together thats all.Theres no way that the game looks that good one minute on the xbox then the next it looks so downplayed.I have seen all HD videos so I would love to know why there are so many new videos that are recent looking the way it does.I would kill to see what the PC version looks like I can only imagine.I still feel that the game looks generic.I did watch a new video on GT ans the developers talk about how no other game has the nano suit???Seriously.Halo Reach has the exact thing is just a different name and all the things they described about running faster or going invisible yep Halo Reach.the only difference I see is that you cant kick cars.It needs to be more of its own game not taking everything I have see from Reach.
You have obviously never played the first Crysis then.
Killzone 3, Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, Uncharted 3 OMG.. what a year it's going to be *faints*
Kilzone 3 !!!!!
At least you kept it simple so we can report your comment as spam, no paragraph outlining your stupidity and general ignorance when it comes to anything technical, just simple and full of grammatical errors. Well done!
lol who really cares about crisis
lol tons of people
Probably more people than that other game that's mentioned in just about every Crysis article. Here's a hint, it begins with the letter K.
Well it shows 360 has trouble handling Crysis 2 graphics thus the lag..Says it all here http://uk.pc.ign.com/articl... This may be fixed closer to launch but I expect a slight graphics downgrade to fix this. We are finally seeing the 360 hit its peak and still early in its life cycle which is impressive on Cryteks part for doing so but sucks as it means you won't get better looking that this and it seems 360 won't ever match up to ps3 graphics but to be fair who cares?? As this game looks a beast and should sell better than COD as it looks and probably plays 10X better. If they have to lower graphics slightly to sort out controls I say DO IT!
Dude you obviously didn't see the 360 footage for Rage!!! Its even proof that 360 did not hit its peak. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Tech Engine 5 baby!!!!
thats why ps3 hasn't really been shown and no demo because companies want ps3 buyers to buy it knowing full well its even worse
"Well it shows 360 has trouble handling Crysis 2 graphics thus the lag." so whats your opinion on the 200ms of input lag in Killzone 2 on the PS3? is that proof that the PS3 has trouble handling Killzone 2? on the topic, the graphics in this game on the 360 are better than anything out on consoles today. Uncharted 2 included, Killzone 2 included. and from watching videos of both, Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3 included too. it looks far more REAL than Uncharteds cartoony graphics, and has more impressive lighting than Killzone 3 (and lets face it, lighting is the only 'wow' element of Killzones graphics) due to the fact that its realistic - its not all lens flares and god rays at every turn like Killzones lighting engine. cant wait to get the demo tomorrow. having said that, if there is anywhere near 200ms of input lag like Killzone 2, i will not buy it.
wait...."best looking console game so far this year" ???? lawl lawl lawl lawl
It is the best looking game so far this year. Only Killzone 3 gives it any competition. "Crysis 2 is clearly in the running for best looking console game out there." I can't wait to see what they can do when they can focus on one console only. Project Kingdoms will look amazing.
i don't think it gonna change much consider that this is a multiplatform engine (see how it changes simultaneously from PC, x360 to ps3.) But hey, Crytek really know what they doing, so let see. Looks good so far (although not as detail as the older videos, possibly cause of multiplayer or something, SP might look better, i don't know). Why keep bringing in KZ here and even try to compare it to PC? The level of intelligence on this site is unfathomably ridiculous.
