Is Crysis 2 the best looking PlayStation 3 game to date?

GB: "There has been a lot of talk about how Crysis 2 looks like on the PlayStation 3. I have also heard some people stating that Crysis 2 does not look as good as the Xbox 360 version. We have reviewed the Xbox 360 version and are currently playing the PlayStation 3 review code and in my opinion both the versions are absolutely similar.
Crysis 2 is also the best looking game on the PlayStation 3 yet and in order to prove this we have taken 60 screens captured at 720P.
Check them out below and I am pretty sure some of them will literally make your jaws drop." (Crysis 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

imo no

i dont speak only about quality or perfomance...
i speak about the whole picture... the colors, the composition.

KZ3 is just too dirty for my taste. Is "sad"
Crysis 2 is more "happy" for my eyes and taste

God of War 3 and Uncharted 2 look better than Crysis 2 imo.

Uncharted 2's final level maybe doesn't push the tech the same way CryEngine is doing but the end visual outcome is essentially perfection.

All of these games prove that it takes years upon years to find the "limit" of a console.

Crysis is good looking, but it doesn't compare to Uncharted, GOW3, Heavy Rain, etc. Those game utilize the PS3 to get the most from it. The flash and flair of the game is sexy but it isn't that sexy. Uncharted 2 has some of the most realistic environments I have ever seen and I am 100% confident that Uncharted 3 will be 10x that. I can't believe this is still going on. And as it stands, I think Killzone 3 still has an edge over Crysis 2. The lighting is way better in C2, but the presentation and the action in KZ3 is incredible. I am even thinking that Resistance will eat Crysis 2 alive. It is actually running past 30frames on PS3.

Oh well these articles will pop back up when RAGE is released.

Yeah, Uncharted 2 is still the most visually impressive game to date on PS3. And God of War 3 wins my award for most technically impressive. Crytek, on the other hand, might have pulled off the most visually impressive across all three platforms.
Mister_G  +   1705d ago
Framerate is more consistent too in Killzone 3 (from what I've seen, C2 goes at low as 18fps on both console versions!).

Can't stand games with variable frame rates. Lock it down to 30fps if you can't get 60fps.

Wow are sites getting mileage out of this game or what?

Let's be honest and keep it real here, shall we?
Crysis 2 is not the best looking game on the PS3 but it is the best looking game on the 360.

Sony has several exclusives that eclipse Crysis 2 but don't let that stop you tabloid journalist from getting hits.

Crysis 2 is impressive but games like GOW3, Killzone and Uncharted 2 completely blew me away when I saw them for the first time, Crysis 2 didn't. Let's not forget Uncharted 3 looks even better than 2 and it will be out before you know it.

vulcanproject  +   1705d ago
It does look good on PS3 but in all honestly it only runs 1024 x 768, and its performance is less than perfect. The likes of KZ3 and Uncharted 2 run 1280 x 720 and Uncharted 2 in particular, performance is absolutely rock solid. The game just doesn't drop frames...

You could argue that Crysis 2 looks better than these games, but even if that is true, you have to admit that it has come at the cost of resolution AND framerate consistancy.

Is why i admire Uncharted 2 so much. It looks the way it does, but it also does not compromise its performance one iota for the sake of the visuals.

well after playing killzone 3 i can say yes it looks good, but better then crysis 2? im not convinced.

i was a bit let down by killzone 3, on one hand some areas look great, like the trash level where you destroy the big robot, other areas can look pretty rough, i thought the jungle level was down rite ugly, the MLAA really takes the sheen away from the game and leaves some areas looking unfinished.

i enjoyed KZ3 but it felt inconsistent as far as graphics go, it was full of ups and downs.
Eyeco  +   1705d ago
i've played both ,Crysis 2 stomps the sh!t out of Killzone 3, Crysis 2 levels are much larger, varied and has COLOUR!!!!!!!!!Killzone 3 levels are much more closed, grey and monotonous.

it also has less going on in the level, its supposed to be this huge planetary war, yet theres like 5 enemies on screen, more of a skirmish if you ask me.

LOL at the fanboys in complete denial, i love the ps3 but how you can say Crysis is inferior to KZ3 is beyond me, the latter has a better art style thats about it, Crysis 2 stomps the sh!t out of KZ3 in terms of lighting, perfomance, textures, level variety etc..

Killzone 3 and Uncharted 2 look A LOT better. Crysis 2 looks good but the shadows, framerate and sharpness of the images hold it back. The aforementioned games are a lot crisper and smoother.

That being said, I'd love to see what they can do with Crysis 3.

no one is arguing that Crysis 2 has more colors and bigger areas than Killzone 3, this is about which one looks better as it is

you can say that Killzone 3 has an easier job with the graphics because of the confined spaces, or with less colors, or with shorter campaign, etc

but those are excuses, like saying that if Killzone 3 had bigger areas or more colors it wouldn't look as good as it does, but that's irrelevant, the games graphics should be judged as they are and not as they could be, and Killzone 3 looks and performs better than Crysis 2, there's no doubt about that

What's wrong with the way the water in the BACKGROUND works in KZ3?
That's not the same water you're able to walk or play through, which is dynamic.

Crysis 2: Sub-HD, poor AA, low FPS, poor latency.

Killzone 3: HD, MLAA, steady framerate, great latency.

Crysis 2's lighting effects and semi-opened up areas don't make up for the fact that it's technically unstable and blocky.

If Killzone 3 isn't enough for you, let Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 give you a laugh over this suggestion.
paintsville  +   1705d ago
Crysis is the best looking game on any platform. It completely crushes ANYthing on ANY platform.
badz149  +   1705d ago
I'm not going to side with either
but some of the comments above are just ridiculously STUPID!

GG set KZ universe on a planet with very harsh condition and on top of that, one of the city was nuked by its own President or what ever! and not all KZ levels are brownish, as the one in the headquarters/lab are not brown and they have colors and then they are certainly colors in the space ship!

in contrast, is NYC nuked in Crysis2? or is NYC always brownish in real life? saying that Crysis 2 looks better because it has colors is simply stupid! not only it doesn't run a at proper 720p, the frame rates are also horrendously unstable and is almost never 30fps!

plus Crysis 2 also doesn't have THAT many vegetation like Crysis 1. but am I complaining like some of you guys up there complaining KZ3 has no colors etc? NO, it's their decision to set the game where they want to! RDR is red/brownish as hell but I don't hear people complaining! I know because it's set on a fucking canyon so why the fuck are you guys complaining about KZ3 being set in a war thorn, industrial thorn and nuke thorn planet??
TheDivine  +   1705d ago
Crysis 2 looks better than kz3 imho. Its hard to really tell but the detail and colors with the huge open environments were top notch while kz3 looked great but it was too gritty and details up close like textures were not as good. Crysis 2 WOWED me. I kept looking at the parks with trees and light falling through, its friggn impressive. The facial animations were amazing but i think uncharted 2 has it beat there. This was the one of the most impressive console gams ive ever seen and it far exceded my expectations. Best fps ive played since halflife 2. I played on 360 also and never had popin or framerate dips even in heavy combat and set pieces. Which game is better is up to you but imo this campain blows kz3 away, its 3 times longer and more open. A breath of fresh air after all the 5 hr campains that are linear. Great story also far more engrossing my only gripe is no bots for multi. The last game i loved this much was alan wake and mass effect 2 right before it, amazing.

EDIT: Dont believe people saying its framerate dips, not once on my 360 has it happened and i had zero gltches. Also people knocking it for bieng like 640p or whatever, you cant tell. Take gow2 remastered in HD, still looks dated and bad textures animation exc compared to gow3, resolution isnt the most important thing. This game has better textures, lighting, details, exc than some 1080p games. Alan Wake got knocked for this while still looking better than 1080p games(one of the best ive seen on consoles also).

Funny, cuz I have the 360 version of Cry2 right here as well as KZ3 which I am not playing atm. KZ3 textures as you say crush Cry2. I have a calibrated local dimming LED and there is no comparison whatsoever. Part of texture quality is resolution. You might want to actually go play KZ3 divine it would help your fanboy opinion a lot. Some of you people need to seek some fucking help. Get both consoles and then none of you would need to do this every day saving you a lot of time. Simple fact: Cry2 is NOT as impressive as any of the big PS3 exlcusives. You can add GT5 and Motorstorm in there as well as they run at HIGHER than 720p resolutions.
humbleopinion  +   1705d ago

what you're saying makes as much sense as saying the opposite: that the only people who don't think its the best looking ps3 game are PS3 fanboys as if it was it would mean the PS3 is sub-par to the X360 graphically.
After all, from comparisons it shows that the game has the edge on the X360.
OneSneakyMofo  +   1705d ago
Here's what I've gathered from reading all the comments:

Only 360 owners:
Crysis 2 is clearly better.

Only PS3 owners:
Killzone 3, Uncharted 2, God of War 3 are clearly better.

Both console owners:
Killzone 3, Uncharted 2, God of War 3 are clearly better.

Conclusion: Single 360 owners are only saying it's better because the 360 can't push out graphical powerhouses like the PS3 exclusive developers can. 360's best looking game up until Crysis 2 was Gears of War 2.

Actually it is the exact opposite. The only people that are saying retarded things like Killzone 3 looks better than Crysis 2 are people that only own a PS3. Those people never have anything good to say about other platforms (you would be a good example of this) so it is obvious that they likely only own a PS3.

Other people like myself who own multiple platforms can easily see that Crysis 2 has more impressive graphics than Killzone 3.

Cryengine 3's amazing first iteration on consoles is Crysis 2.

Compare how much of an improvement has been made between UT3 (one of the first Unreal 3's games) and Gears 3 or Bioshock Infinite.

Hopefully further games will adapt and push Cryengine to its limit on consoles.

I don't understand why devs still persist with Unreal, when there is a superior engine available. Imagine Mass Effect (another EA published game) using CryEngine 3!?!

From a technically standpoint Crysis 2 is by far the most impressive game on PS3 and on Xbox 360. It is the only Game that gives you a taste of what Crysis was on PC according to Gameplay and Visuals. I'm catching myseld more often simply looking around in Crysis 2 and everything feels so dynamic and alive ... even Uncharted 2, God of War 3 or Killzone did not make me feel like that. They look great but they are very scripted too. Even a die-hard-ps3-fanboy cannot deny this masterpiece Crytek brought to consoles.
cooperdnizzle  +   1705d ago
Um yes yes we can! And we did cause you already have 4 disagrees. And you are crazy if ya think crysis looks better than the games you mention. Killzone 3 has the best visuals in a game. And god of wars tech is unmatched this gen! Not to mention we have MGS4 a game made 3 years ago that looks just as good as some games today. And the game had like 14 hours of cut scences that were just eye popping! Heck i think MGS4 looks better than crysis! Just my opinion
Ju  +   1705d ago
I think it is impressive in the sense it pushes a multiplatform and on the ps3 it pushes the RSX to the max. But it could do more. Maybe Crytek is taxing the SPUs with other stuff, but they still don't use a deferred renderer (at least I don't think so - not fully). Next iteration could, though. We will see it that'll ake a difference. Dice will show it in BF3.
mfwahwah  +   1705d ago

mastiffchild  +   1705d ago
Crytek have a had a REALLY good go on all platforms but for me they still fall a little short -IN MOTION- on PS3 in matching the very best exclusives.

In stills it almost matches, down to the merest details, games like U2, GOW3, HR and KZ3-to the point where, mostly, you'd see no difference.

In motion, though, they fell down ever so slightly and I also feel there'as a bigger drop in SP to MP than there is on either KZ2 or KZ3. It's just not, for me, as smooth in motion as Sony's best offerings-the pop in is too much to say it beats out the comp full stop and the frame rate is choppier than the games I mentioned as well.

That said, it's so far ahead of every other PS3 multi it's very noticeable. On 360 there's no reason, though, not to say it beats out Gears2 as the systems best looker all round but with G3 mightily promising we shall see what Clifford brings to the table(if he can pull away from fighting with people who don't share his controller preference long enough!).

Great first go Crytek, amazing multi results now give FRD the leeway to bring the best shooting fun ever made to current gen consoles with TS4-king of them all!

Just thinking, however, f the few shoddy edges and pop in could be patched away by Crytek? Maybe then they'd match the best PS3 exclusives in action as well as on most screeshots. Talented guys , whatever.Just imagine if they'd worked the PS3 centric way ND/GG did?

I agree.
I don't think it's the best looking game on PS3, but it's definitely up there. I personally believe God of War III is the best looking PS3 game so far. At times, it looked like CG or similar to the animation in films. The textures, aliasing, scale--well everything, I thought were insane.

In regards to Crysis 2, it looks amazing too. Screenshots don't do it justice. Something about seeing Crysis 2 in motion, just like the first Crysis, is sometimes breathtaking. I think that's due to Crytek's skill with special effects and whatnot (i.e. motion blur, lighting, etc.).

As I said, I don't think it's the best, but it's certainly up there.

Unfortuantly seome devs had made this line saying they pushed the ps3. thankfully this isnt the case we wont see the full potential of the system for good couple years yet.

right as for crysis sneak-out DO you own the ps3 version have you played the full retail game.
i beleave if you think its a fail its cos you cant play crysis the way crysis is meant to be played. let me guess you go out there shoot people find you dye too many times. maybe thats why you think its a fail really. cos the engine and the detail even textures used in this game is like many have stated up there with some of the best.

unless anyone here hasnt played the full retail game and only the multiplayer build. i suggest if you gonna hate on it without playing it. shut the hell up.

The multiplayer looks too marginal (in terms of gameplay) for a GotY FPS.

Killzone 3 looks way better then Crysis 2. I read somewhere that the PS3 version of Crysis 2 was only 6GB...quite shocking really.
tucky  +   1705d ago
Killzone 3 is just AWFUL when compared to crysis 2.
Focker420  +   1705d ago
How about you actually play it instead of basing your opinion on youtube videos.
nilamo  +   1705d ago
could say the same thing about half the people here bashing crysis.
Holeran  +   1705d ago
Tucky you are either blind, a troll, or out of your mind. Killzone 3 still holds the best graphics on PS3 and doesn't have to drop frames all the time while doing it either.
Dread  +   1705d ago
I own both and frankly they are on par graphically. which one is better comes down to personal taste, rather than graphic power.

In my opinion this is the first time since Uncharted 2, that a 360 game is on par graphically with playstation 3 exclusives.

I know i will get flamed, but thats how i see it. Agian, I played KZ3 last week, and now I am playing Crysis 2 on the 360. They are both graphic beasts!

o and I really do not like either of them. They are ok gamplay wise, but not close to the best.

At the end of the day it's still NYC and I've seen NYC top to bottom 100X from True Crime: NYC to Spider-man 2. The visual thrill and sense of epic is gone for me. Even GTA4 had its own Lady Liberty, and now Resistance 3 is headed there as well.

I'm more impressed now with exotic and varied environments where I don't recognise the street signs. I'd rather enjoy the view from Mt Olympus or the Sprawl before another rooftop in Baghdad, y'know? There's only so much you can fawn at the Chrysler building.

I'm fairly certain that the NYC level in R3 will look nothing like the NYC in other games. The chicago and san francisco levels in R2 should have shown you that, and that was before what happened at the end of that game.

Going by the PS3Fan logic, Killzone 3 is.

@below Should i believe a guy that has "killzone3gamer" as name? I don't think so LOL

common sense dictates Exclusive > multiplat
therefore Ps3 exclusives > Crysis 2
Crysis 2 =/= way better,such a Crysis fanboi

Only way it would look better is if its on PC which then there would be no point of this conversation.
Which people are obviously talking about consoles only
so Ps3 exclusives > multiplats still stands firm.

At first I didn't think so and after a couple of hours of gameplay, I still don't. It indeed looks great, but it hasn't wowed me graphically like when I first booted up God of War 3 or Killzone 2.

I think the pedigree of the original Crysis has given them an automatic pass in the "best graphics" dept. Like I said though, it does look incredibly good and is fun to play to boot.
sickbird  +   1705d ago
I have it on PS3 (great game by the way) and the game look fantastic. Idk why people say it looks bad. Im constantly just exploring and starring at the beautiful scenery. It has a few visual hiccups but what game doesnt? plus theres NO screen tearing which is a big plus in my book. It look as good if not better than killzone 3, but they both have different styles so its hard to compare.

Ya. IDK why people are saying it looks bad also. It isn't the best looking game on the PS3 but it's probably the best that's also a multiplat game. It's pretty impressive what Crytek has done. They not only made a great looking multiplat game but it is also a sandbox game.

Please give me your perception of what a 'sandbox' game is.
Shackdaddy836  +   1705d ago
Sanbox is a game where you can decide what to do. Crysis is a sandbox because it has bubbles where you can do what you want. You can choose to go in guns ablazin, you could choose to pick them off one-by-one, you can lay down booby-traps, or you can just skip that fight altogether.

Many people think sandbox = open world but they are actually two different things (I'm guessing that's why you are asking).
mastiffchild  +   1705d ago
By that logic every game in the MGS and SC series are, to some extent "sandbox" games as-think of the last entries in each series for examples-you could use a multitude of tactics in those games but I'd never call them true sandboxes, not really.

To me a couple of different routes around one or two levels or the ability to use a full frontal or stealthy approach to manage the same objectives doesn't make a sandbox game-not of any real kind. People, rightly or wrongly associate the "sandbox" genre with games with sizeable maps within which the gamer is free to do as they wish, when they wish and don't have to follow story missions in a linear fashion all the time.

Games like Just Cause or the GTA games, Prototype or inFamous-those are full sandbox games even if, to me, the phrase "open world" is giving them WAY too much credit-even with the intricate, functioning city of GTA4.

To me games like Yakuza fit your bill but not KZ3 which is mighty fine but totally linear while Crysis WAS a sandbox game and 2 may well be considered one too(I've played very littl campaign yet)-whatever, more freedom than just a difference in ways of coping with a level is needed to declare a game a sandbox.
aquamala  +   1705d ago
Wow an opinion from someone that actually played both games!
Dread  +   1705d ago
they say it looks bad because it is a multiplatform game and it makes sony fanboys insecure. Their negativity and hate towards a game which is obviously just as good graphically as most Sony exclusives, is a measure of their insecurity.

mastiffchild  +   1705d ago
Crytek DID make a game that's close to being on par, visually at least, or beating out all but the very best PS3 exclusives and actually, for me, beats out Gears2 as best looking game in total on 360-t IS that good to look at.

Thing is, for me, people overstate how well it looks on PS3 a little because there's still some issues in motion with the game and it's those which stop it, mainly, from my POV Crysis2 beating the likes of GOW3 or KZ3 or U2. In stills it's a near match for those games(and HR and the R&C games which, though a different style are just as amazing to me)and CAN best them at times but in action (and the slightly bigger drop in quality between SP and MP it suffers-though even then it looks great, don't get me wrong)but a few pop in, texture and framerate issues(leaving artistic taste aside as I actually PREFER the artstyle in Crysis2 to much of KZ3)just mean, for me, the very best Sony exclusives beat it out by a small margin.

They definite made the best looking multiplat ever this gen, IMO the best ever looking 360 game bar none and pushed both consoles pretty damn hard to nearly match their own hype which is a brilliant effort. IDK how t stacks u to it's two dads on PC having not played the PC version yet but on console they did really well.

However, I don't think it's fair to say people are deluded for feeling a few, REALLY high end PS3 exclusves are slightly better to look at overall-imho it's true and I don't feel in the least threatened by any game beating Sony at their own game-I'd welcome it pushing GG, SM and their ilk(and ND of course)even further. I just wish we'd seen Crytek uzse similar processes to Sony devs as then I think they would possibly have beasted them.

I`m playing it on PC so i wouldn't know but does it really look nicer then Uncharted 2? After i seen that game it just set the bar and broke it for best graphics in a console game.
CernaML  +   1705d ago
No. Not by a long shot. The blurriness and choppy frame rate really kills it. This is just Killzone 1 all over again. Too much for consoles.
mastiffchild  +   1705d ago
I'd say it's a lot closer than that AND that the issue isn't a KZ over ambition one either. The issues you speak of ARE those I feel keep the likes of GOW3/U2/KZ3 slightly ahead of Crysis2 on PS3 but youmake them out to be awful when they aren't in the same league as they were for the WILDLY over ambitious first Killzone on PS2.

It looks great and, for the most part, runs amazingly well on PS360 and each version has it's pros and t's cons because of the true reason I feel it still isn't the game it possibly COULD have been on console and that's the need, the HUGE need for near parity for multiplats in this gen. Their prime concern was always to get the two versions looking and running as similarly as possible-whatever their PR spiel about being the best looking game on every platform ever thought of might have said.

The fact that it's one of the five or ten best looking PS3 games and, for my cash, THE best looking 360 game until Gears3 lands STILL dictates it a success and with the yoke and drudgery of parity around their necks it's an even bigger achievement to me.
zeddy  +   1705d ago
god of war 3 is the best looking game on ps3 although some parts look great and others dont.
CaliGamer  +   1705d ago
Portions of the game look excellent, the fire looks great, the water looks great.

Overall I think they did a respectable job with the PS3 version, but, I can't go as far as to say that the overall product is the best the PS3 has to offer.

That being said, I am enjoying this game quite a bit. Crysis 2 + KZ3 + Infamous 2 + Uncharted 3 + Resistance 3 = an awesome year for any PS3 owner, period.

Note: Comment above does not attempt to encompass the awesomeness that is the PS3 lineup of 2011. Fill in other games I missed as needed.
WayneKerr  +   1705d ago

Absolutely not. When I switch between k3 & crysis 2 it is noticeable. & i have my display settings from 1080p to 720p. Enough said. If it maxed out the ps3, it would look better than Xbox and i love my Xbox...I'm no fanboy

Anyone who doesn't think Uncharted 2 is the most graphically impressive game of this console gen has not played it all the way through, or is a stinkin' liar. I'm sorry, but it's just so far ahead of everything else that it's beyond a matter of opinion. And I include Killzone 3 and GOW3 in that.

And I own both a PS3 and 360, and play both very often.

Screw the graphics, the controls in Crysis 2 are downright terrible. You pretty much have to camp and stand completly still and aim down the sigts and just wait for a enemy to walk in front of you in order to get a kill.

They are worse than KZ2 controls!

i agree about that if im sucks at the game and i can see alots of people haveproblems with the gameplay in both games but when i play a game even in the first time i know how to play it like if i played it more then a month , crysis2 and killzone 3 are hard , one have heavy gameplay and the other have a gameplay like a feather ,but if you are smart you would know how to play both , i never found a hard game ,all are easy for me because i try to find how the gameplay is , i never hide in games , i always attack and that hard for alots of people but not for me , hiding is more harder for me...
