Killzone 3 vs. Crysis 2 HD Video Evidence

16BitMonster took one of the best looking PS3 games vs. what IGN is calling one of the best looking console games from the Xbox 360 and compared them side by side to see who wins. (Crysis 2, Killzone 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

From this video, I personally like Crysis 2's visuals over Killzone 3's due to the vibrant colors. And yes, I do own a PS3.
Primetimebt  +   1655d ago
Don't get me wrong crysis 2 has the best lighting I ever seen in a game but when gets into a dark area it doesn't have the graphical power as KZ3.

I disagree. I think Killzone 3 beats crysis 2 in every category. It just looks so much better than crysis 2

This is a bad comparison video. The Crysis vid has nothing going on, while the Killzone vid is probably one of the most open levels of the game.

I have both games, and personally I think it's just a matter of art style preference. Crysis 2 goes for photoreal while Killzone 3 has a dedicated art style.

To me Crysis environments and lightning look better (although with a lot less debris, etc...) thanks to the vibrant colors, and openness of many of the levels. But Killzone looks better in more areas than Crysis such as weapons, character models, effects, animations, and more. But like others said when you get in a dark area on Crysis you lose the graphical quality.

It's really just preference, and personally I like both, but I like Killzone a little more due to art style, where Crysis 2 tries for photoreal, but just doesn't quite make it.

HolyOrangeCows  +   1655d ago | Well said
Killzone 3: MLAA, HD, no screen tearing, stable framerate
Crysis 2 on consoles: Sub-HD, poor AA, some screen tearing, unstable framerate, poor latency

Killzone 3 wins hands down. Some lighting effects don't save Crysis 2 from being blocky and technically unstable.

Killzone 3 has plenty of large fully rendered levels. The fact that it went with a more linear level design doesn't mean a thing. Well, if you've actually played Killzone 3, you know what I'm talking about.

Well, of course you'll side with Killzone 3, you're one of the biggest PS3 Fanboy's on this site. And, obviously you haven't played Crysis 1 or 2, because if you had, you'd realise that Crysis 2 destroys its competition. I remember the days where PS3 fanboys used Gears' greys as an insult, yet now its the best colour palette for a game to have... pathetic.

KZ3 is much more better. Look at the action all things flying around explosion and bullets and fast shooting. Crysis 2 I see no ation at all.

Visually KZ3 looks better on the PS3. Off-course on PC is Crysis 2 awesome more with graphics. But gameplay Svcks @ss really boring game no action at all.

Although the PS3 version doesn't have screen-tearing.

This video is too dark, I can't see anything, especially on the Crysis 2 side.
NiKK_419  +   1654d ago
C2 kinda looks better in the video, but when you actually play both of these games, kz3 looks way better, and definitely more polished graphically, and texture pop in is absolutely crazy on C2, draw distance is unbearable, i couldn't imagine sniping on that game (haven't really tried, so...) and the destruction is bad, the destruction that kz3 has is waay better and more realistic in every way than C2's destruction
Crysis 2 is fun, but there are major hits everywhere in this game to get the graphics where they are, and i don't think it's worth it entirely

Yeah this from a fair and unbiased comparison. From the same user that posts such youtube gems as.

It still throws any creditability this guy had out the window, any none halfwit can see that.

Not to mention that video seems a little dodgy to me, the spent a long time restarting that system. If you remove the power cable slightly you can make your 360 fake RROD.

Not to mention he just happens to be recording a video of a game hes clearly not interested in, when his 360 suddenly RROD.

Sorry but am dismissing this guy as a fanboy nothing more. Not to mention the clear bad contrast used in the Crysis 2 comparison.

When a cable is moved either 2 or all 4 lights turn red, not 3.

@Menech: You don't need credibility to prove Killzone 3 has better graphics than Crysis 2, you just need those you are trying to sway to have eyes!

Currently enjoying both games but it's not even close! Crysis lighting only works with the sun, every other light doesn't produce shadows; lighting in Killzone 2(yes 2) was much better. Not to mention the glitches, unstable framerate, sub HD, low res textures all over the place, screen tearing and poor A.I... this list could go on forever! You know how good KZ3 would look and how much they could add if they didn't care about these things!

This is like having a broken car that doesn't run good and poor design and saying it is better than a perfectly running car that has better design because the Crysis 2 car is blue and the KZ3 car is grey!

Doesn't matter though because I am having more fun with Crysis 2! Super suit just adds a dynamic that makes it more than just shooting! Jumping in Crysis 2 is one of the best things whereas jumping in KZ3 makes little sense!

If you were smart enough to check the videos you should have been smart enough to check the details. "Please be advised this video was made for 16bitmonstervids so if you enjoyed please subscribe to them" Everyone crying about the darkness in crysis it's because the game clips are from parts where the shadows overtaken the lighting, or hes in the parking garage so don't cry we messed with the contrast when it's darken because of the of shadows of trucks, buildings, etc.

Plus the video of the Halo was made recording the freezing problem to being with and it just happen to catch the RROD. You might want to give your career was a detective up.

Bought crysis 2 on PS3 and its a beast of a game, but the visuals at least on PS3 are disapointing, choppy textures and such. It sure as hell looks good but from just playing KZ3 I'd prefer KZ3's visuals.
But the MP on Crysis 2 is sick.

Did anybody ever notice, that Crysis2 buildings all have straight walls (basically cubes) while KZ3's don't?

Take a very good look at buildings in KZ3. There is not a single one which isn't completely bombed out. Not a single "cube" in the whole game. For what it's worth, that requires every single detail be modeled, not just bump mapped.

That basically applies to everything in KZ3. Incl. roads etc. Not a single road which isn't damaged.

If you want to really "feel" how that is different replay some of KZ2's maps in KZ3.

Raf1k1  +   1655d ago
So do but I have to say that a prettier picture doesn't mean it's technically more ipressive. While I really like the look of Killzone 3 and other dark and dirty war games I think devs should start putting some colour back into the genre.
Ju  +   1654d ago
I like both. I agree that "brighter" games are more popular with the majority of the gaming community. I think CoD is another example why that works.

And, while I like KZ3 for what it is, I'd like to see Guerilla make a game which caters to that audience. Just for the sake of comparison and to see if they can push the boundaries with such a game.

I think KZ3 has two fundamental problems to mass attract gamers (and I speak purely from a business perspective - if you like the game(s) or not doesn't matter): a) it is too dark (incl. dark background story) and b) it has the word "kill" in its name.

Yet, technically, this game blows others out of the water. I would like to see this tech used in a mainstream title with bright colors a la Crysis, CoD, Halo or Uncharted. I think it would be even more impressive - because we wouldn't actually discuss art style here.
LOGICWINS  +   1655d ago
@Primetimebt- Yeah I agree, the lighting is fantastic. Keep in mind I'm just going off the vids I've seen..I haven't had time to play the Crysis 2 demo on PSN yet. But my opinion still stands that it looks better(in my eyes)than Killzone 3 from this video. I'm pretty sure Resistance 3 will top Crysis 2 in the visuals department though.

Crysis 2 fails - completed it on the 360 and wow, its the most unpolished game ive played in a while!

Texture popin, most unstable framerate, screen tearing alot, and dumbest ai in games ever, oh and don't forget the billion bugs and glitches!

KZ3 may not be as colorful but in the end, color aint graphics alone!!

KZ3 may not win in color, but in terms of graphics and design, Crysis fails hard!!! The pc version r stable though!!
candystop  +   1654d ago
Either I'm blind or your butt hurt you ps3 fanboy. Crysis2 clearly looks better even with the errors. So now I guess any game with not as much texture pop in or dumb AI (KZ3) is better looking than Cyrsis2 lol.
Motorola  +   1654d ago
They both look good. I think Killzone 3 is a little better.
D3athc3ll  +   1654d ago

Im not saying Crysis 2 is bad looking! It looks great, but not as much as some ppl say! And boy, it could have been a much better game if they just polished it more, like maybe delayed it a month or 2!!

Anyway, i had alot of hope for Crysis 2, but it dissapointed me alot! Some scenes were alot of fun and great to play, but yea, i just hope they get the dx 11 for pc right and maybe itll be a much better experience on pc max settings!!

Must say the dumb AI made me laugh alot in the game, so it wasn't that bad to experience it!

Killzone 3 > Crysis in most ways (graphics)

Uncharted 2 still my best looking console game! Must say God of War 3's scale were epic, and the textures was >>>>> at most times!

I dont make these things up, i own both consoles and like them both! Gears of War (series) amongst my fav games, and mgs 4 the most fav game!

Xbox 360 = awesome
Ps3 = awesome
Pc = best, but till BF3 comes out, ima wait to upgrade!

Battlefield 3 = best graphics ive ever seen (pc)

In the end... everybody got their own opinions! I just find it hard to respect other ppl's opinions in some areas! But im getting there!

All have nice day! Go watch FPSRussia on youtube!!! Best ever!

why the hell you go on the defensive after praising killzone such a hypocrite.

I got the pc version of crysis 2 and its absolutely gorgeous.

Now for killzone 3 I loved the hell out of that game and it kicks ass as a console shooter.

Not only to mention there is so much more action in killzone 3 it feels like a real damn war.

crysis 2 AI suks the characters always mumble the same crap. their isn't much chaos in crysis 2 like kz3.

Crysis and crysis warhead where the pinnacle of graphics and game play c2 falls way short.

Also a snow level on a planet like mars vs a city street in new york. dumb ass comparison and to be honest even though I have gripes with both games I think they both kick ass at the end of the day.

Simply Put...
Crysis 2 is a single, monotonous, city environment, that's showing off some really great lighting...
The effort put into rendering varied environments in KZ3 if had been done to a single theme, that would have been the fairest comparison...

So, KZ3 is a whole lot of environments, has its own lighting+art complexion and it kicks a$$ in rendering each of those envirnments... especially the glaciers,
so yeah KZ3 on top alright :)

I got the ps3 version of crysis 2, and the lighting, even in dark areas is great. It may be different on the 360 but its hard to fault on the ps3. So I'm glad I wasn't swayed by the negatives and got it for my 360. There are so many ways to approach levels and upgrade possibilitys that replaying the campaign will be enjoyed again and again. Play the games not the consoles.
Ju  +   1654d ago
I like C2 a lot. I think it is one of the best looking games out now. I like the scope of the levels, it is breath taking.

And at the same time it is the same over and over again and gets boring pretty quickly.

This becomes pretty apparent when you actually play both at the same time.

Sure, C2s campaign plays nicely - not great, but nicely.

But every time I switch back to KZ3 I am asking myself "what just happened". Seriously. The amount of visual effects going on all of a sudden makes you feel you just entered a different world. And that it sure is.
JUDALATION  +   1655d ago
This is BULLSHIT! Killzone looks JUST AS GOOD IN MULTIPLAYER, while Crysis 2 looks way Better in the Multiplayer but in their single player... in Crysis 2 You get texture popins... as in you are walking and then BAM a box pops in your view but take a step back it dissapears...The worst part is that this also happens to cloaked enemies... Unacceptable! the graphics in Crysis 2 dont have the epic enviroments of Killzone3, and the sound in Killzone 3 is second only to Battlefield...Crysis sound iS THE WORST IN ANY CONSOLE GAME! HOMEFROUNT IS BETTER! I WAS ON PEAR 17 and I jumped out the water and when I went up the stairs... it was still making the splashing sounds... but how can any game with no servers compete in sound and graphics with Killzone?
InTheKnow  +   1655d ago
LMFAO...sad comparison
What a sad display of fanboyism. The Crysis 2 video didn't even fire his weapon until the 1:30 mark? Where are all the set pieces? Where are all the great water effects and lighting? Where are the enemies.

I've played both those campaigns through to the end. Crysis 2 has no equal ( 2011 ) at the moment. Even with severe pop in and AI that breaks from time to time, Crysis 2 really manhandles KZ 3. At this point your dealing with a delusional fan-base in the PS3 that is beyond help.

Crysis 2 is really 2 games. One was a very early in development and the other is the post E3 2010 game that was delayed after they got a glimpse of Bulletstorm, Gears 3, COD, Halo Reach and delayed the release until March 2011. It's not a coincidence that Crysis 2 has the exact same res as Halo Reach or that the water splashing everywhere is a pixel perfect recreate from Bulletstorm. Unreal is a major competitor for Cry-3.

What you see in the campaign is a lot of advertising for their Cry-3 engine. Sandbox game play followed with huge draw distances as well as some vehicle usage. Great variety of weapons and enemies and of course the deal breaker with the nanosuit and all it's RPG-ish upgrades.

The game is a great Hybrid of all the above mentioned games. The multi-player maps alone are outstanding let alone the entire campaign that really shows what can be done with Cry-3.

KZ 3 doesn't have an identity at the moment. Is it Nazi's in space or just a plain vanilla COD wannabe. I think it's both. The releasing of the beta and sp campaign demo actually hurt the sales of this game as gamers had a chance to see that the game is nothing more than a COD wannabe withOUT the cool parts. The sales for the game have been pretty bad for such a big release exclusively on a console that has moved 47+ million units. COD: Black ops on ps3 has sold 10+ million. It's obvious what game is better.

WengYong  +   1654d ago
If you are playing on PC then hell yeah Crysis 2 blows Killzone 3 out of the water. On consoles no way. There are better looking games on both 360 and PS3. Gears 2 supports a higher resolution, more stable frame rate and far better AA. Uncharted 2 is the exact same. Crysis 2 not only has terrible pop in and jaggys but the textures up close look terrible. Cry Engine 3 has wonderful lighting, and yet it still falls behind the original Crysis!

As for your argument of sales showing what is the better game, again thats fail. If thats the case Wii Sports is absolutely the greatest game of all time, which we all know is garbage. Sales doesn't equal greatness. Look at the movies, Kings Speech won an Oscar for best movie and received countless commendations from Movie critics. And yet more people will go watch Transformers Dark Of The Moon. The same applies to games, all games will never come close to CoD in terms of sales, no Halo, Gears, Killzone, Uncharted nothing. Does this make CoD a better game? No not by a long shot.

Can consoles run Crysis? No, but they can run a dumbed down Crysis 2. I like the game, its a good change from the CoD franchise and all, but don't suck the sausage. Its not as great as you think. For all its Sandbox elements it is quite linear.
InTheKnow  +   1654d ago
@wengdong ignoramus
Xbox 360 runs a higher res than Crysis 2 on PS3, is it automatically the better game? Of course not and only an ignorant fanboy would think so. Resolution is only one of many parameters that a game can be judged. A lot of terrible games runs at high resolution, it means very little in the grand scheme of things.

People buy games they like, case closed. Sales are a direct result of people buying a game they like. Critical acclaim looks good on paper but nowhere else. Wii sports is packaged with every wii sold. Kung fu panda sold 3+ million packaged with the 360, is it worth 3+ million in sales? If you want to compare Farmville or other casual games/ free apps to big budget full price titles, go ahead, again your comparing apples and oranges.

Critics rarely if ever BUY a game. While their opinions are held in high regard in some circles, it's a fallacy. Gamers vote with their wallets and that is why COD is the top FPS this gen. The critics panned Transformer, the movie, when it came out but what happened at the box office? Again, people vote with their hard earn dollars.

COD is a multi-plat. Comparing sales of a multi-plat to an exclusive is an act of stupidity. Multi-plat is available everywhere. Only a ignorant fanboy would do such a thing.

Can consoles run Crysis 2, of course it can and it does. It will sell twice as many copies on consoles than on PC. Even the fanboy who created that sad display above certainly knew Crysis is the better of the two games and that's
why he went out of his way to try and discredit it. What if Crysis 2 out sell KZ 3 on PS3. Does that mean nothing? It means something very important but ignorant fanboys won't except the truth.

NOBODY is saying Crysis 2 is the best looking game ever, least of all me. What Crysis 2 was and is , is an advertisement for the Cry-3 engine, an engine they are in the market to sell. That is why, besides the actual pacing requirements of the game, That Crysis 2 offers both sandbox as well as linear moments to the gamer and the gaming community at large, to show it's versatility. Of course that went over your head and every other fanboys head because of blind brand loyalty and a healthy dose of, you guessed it, ignorance.

BTW, It seems the " sausage " your sucking is blocking out the sun and your missing the big picture.

@ InTheKnowNothingAtAll

Learn to read my friend. Crysis 2 is Crysis 2, same game on both platforms. PC blows both of them clean put of the water. Well Ive never heard of a person that has said "Oh I hate that game, Im gunna buy it." Great use of logic there.

Your argument for sales holds as much water as my argument for quality. IMO is CoD better than Uncharted? Hell no not by a long shot. But people voted with their wallets so automatically it must be the better game right?

And please LEARN TO READ. I said can consoles run "CRYSIS" and not Crysis 2. And no they can't run the original. Cry Engine 3 has been dumbed down for consoles and it sucks that PC gamers get the short end of the stick.

Nobody is saying its the best looking game? Come on even you know thats BS. Plenty of them are saying that. And personally I couldn't give 2 craps if Killzone 3 was outsold by Crysis. If it does congratulations. So if it does outsell it what does it mean? That a multi plat outsold a PS3 exclusive? So what dude. There are things to do outside of gaming.

Oh and thanks for the personal attack too. Your a keyboard of the finest sort.
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1655d ago
I've been a bit hard on Crysis 2 on ps3. (mainly because crytek hyped it to be something that it wasn't) But my main opposition to is it's sub hd with bland textures. But resolution and textures aren't the absolute way to judge a games graphics. It is extremely detailed. It's water and lighting are really good too. It's water is better than Killzone's (not that killzone actually has lots of water in it though). the game looks really good. Still think Killzone looks better. But the more I play Crysis the more i start to appreciate what it does right. Which is a lot actually.
Pintheshadows  +   1654d ago
Its foliage is incredible. I think the issue is that both games are a bit inconsistent. Some of Crysis 2 looks incredible but other parts are disapointing. It is the same with KZ3. I still think they are by far the prettiest shooters though. Until BF3 anyway.

@below, I think the musical score for Crysis 2 is better than KZ3. KZ3s score isn't as good as KZ2. Much like the rest of the game.

Well, I agree. I was a bit harsh with Crysis, too. Yet I think Crytek quite delivered on the PS3.

Visually it is top notch.

I think, from a technical standpoint they can do a bit more. Event though I am not sure if this would actually make a big difference.

But, same visuals but full 1280x720 and stable 30fps are possible with optimization. I am sure they can do it. This won't change the overall look of the game, but will make it just a little bit more fluid and enjoyable.

If anything, this is what KZ3 has no problem with at all. I also think KZ3 has a bigger poly budget. That would be nice to see in Crysis. But again, visually it is already great. Framerate and res up a bit would be nice.

I'm about to ditch console gaming anyways once Battlefield 3 comes out. I'm truly sick of sub-hd gaming with low resolution textures with no anti-aliasing, its like being stuck in 2005 lol

You say it like Kinect is neither fun nor entertaining; however, that is an incorrect statement. You are also implying that MS does not have any exclusives which again is an incorrect statement. I understand that N4G is a maelstrom of subjectivity, but there is a difference between opinion and fact.

Battlefield 3 looks amazing, I really do hope its as awesome as you want it to be. I personally will still be playing TF2 classic until TF3 comes out.

I was feeling a serious CoD vibe from both the single player and multiplayer of Killzone 3. At least with Crysis its only in the multiplayer.
SoulMisaki  +   1655d ago
Is it scary i was thinking of Bill Nye just before I saw your name?
Anyway, on topic, I think I like the lighting in Crysis 2 better, but from a visual standpoint, I like the look, feel, and art style of Killzone more.

I didn't stop at the beginning of Crysis 2, but I stopped just after gaining control on Killzone 3, and looked towards the sun. It's amazing how much power they're still squeezing out of the PS3, even though it is rather old. (Tech wise)

Everyone who reads this, do that in the KZ3 campagn, and tell me which looks better, Crysis 2 or Killzone 3.
LunaticBrandon  +   1655d ago
Crysis 2 is definitely superior and that's without bringing the PC version into this which is easily a generation ahead of Killzone 3. The amount of denial from Playstation fanboys is hilarious. Go to any site but this one and the answer is Crysis 2.

And "fanboys" trot out 'denial' to close down their 'argument' (or lack thereof) EVERY - SINGLE -TIME.

For god's sake, the problems with C2 are many - Cell soldiers' poor animations, weak stealth kills, enemies glitching into/through walls (and in one hilarious instance, up a tree), walk up to a dead Cell soldier and see AWFUL textures, terrible death animations, boring weapons with little variety, repetetive backgrounds (just because there are green trees everywhere doesn't change that), weak background textures, lots of pop-up (on nearby objects), barely any background interaction and it DOESN'T look as good as the "Crysis Fanboys" rave about. I think it plays pretty blandly too, with it's much feted 'open' maps a badly designed mess.

Worse still is the clear evidence of hypocrisy that so many refuse to see: After KILLZONE 2 was released we had numerous articles about how "generic" the game was, with articles written that pointed out anal 'fanboy' crap like "LOL, KZ2 is sooo generic that it even has red exploding barrels and warehouse shootouts"

Well, what did I see in C2 within an hour of starting? Red exploding barrels. What did I see within a day? A warehouse shootout. Truly pathetic, and proof of the double standards that too many people deny exist.

I've played both and made my mind up - No ammount of bullying by you or your "Crysis Cheerleader cronies" will change that: KILLZONE 2 and 3 look BETTER, and that's an opinion I've arrived at using my own eyes. Don't like my opinion then too bad, but don't you DARE suggest it's no less important than yours or is somehow 'tainted'.

Tell me one game that looks better than KZ 3 or God of War 3,... if you say the original crysis, then you need to go back and look at the character models... even on the highest settings. Cut scenes from Starcraft II don't count either, since the user has no control, so the developers optimize the shit out of them because of the predictability of the on screen action. You have an incomprehensible fanboyism for a dying platform that would be nothing without the consoles.

Looking at the comparison video, IMO Killzone 3 edges out Crysis 2 visually! What people aren't talking about that should matter, is the fact that Killzone 3 has so much more going on in the video. Sure the explosion and, lighting effects makes Crysis 2 an excellent addition to any console owners collection.

Ace_1975  +   1655d ago
I own both games, Killzone 3 is overall more polished as it has a smoother framerate and just feels more solid. Crysis 2 on consoles feels like a PC game that is struggling on consoles. BUT it looks amazing, the lighting and the way they have designed everything makes it look as close to realism as I have seen in a game to date.

Crysis 2 with DX11 is going to destroy everything out there, only thing holding back Crysis 2 is the console power. Killzone 3 I don't think is equal as it's not as open as Crysis 2 and doesn't have that sexy lighting going on. But it does have better textures in places, especially the gun models that have no equal. so I'll call it a draw until DX11 patch is out.

Also the video si not really fair, all the Killzone 3 footage is action packed, it just makes Killzone 3 look more exciting. They are different games with different pacing, it's not really fair to judge them like this side by side.

And I fully expect to get marked down, N4G has the worst Killzone fanboys on any site, they are mental and need help. They can't accept people just don't fap over their game like they do.

Crysis has better gameplay, no contest, and that's all that matters really. You can play your childish graphics wars all day. It's silly.

I mentioned in another thread a few days ago that I thought that Crysis 2 was NOT the best looking PS3 game after being a couple of hours into it.

After near completion though, I'm not fully sure that I was correct. Crysis 2 has wowed me on multiple occasions now while being a completely different experience.

It's all subjective really. Both look great.

Raendom  +   1654d ago
But you added Crysis higher than KZ? Which suggests to me you DID mean they're in TECHNICAL order.

Just because Crysis does more doesn't mean it looks better, to some it does, to others it doesn't. Art style is subjective and whenever discussing graphics everyone tends to mean whatever looks best.

A sphere with 200,000 faces and aliasing but no textures or lighting is technically "better graphics" than a sphere that is only 512 faces but is entirely textured & lighted properly without aliasing.
thief  +   1655d ago
When KZ2 came out, it looked way superior to any other game out there. It made Halo 3/ODST and CoD look like last gen games. But we got a lot of incessant criticism of the game being generic, “lacks colour,” allegedly poor AI, etc.

So now that they have got rid of most of these issues, why are we seeing so many graphics comparisons? They got rid of the input lag, have more variety in combat (jetpacks, tanks), multiplayer (operations), have brought in splitscreen, more environments (jungle, ice, the most awesome example of either in any game I have seen), the enemy AI was deadly to begin with.

Basically, unlike many other “top” developers they have listened to feedback, made an already good game even better – and I am talking about the gameplay. As far as graphics go, forget KZ2, few other games would be able to match even KZ2. But the gameplay alone means that millions of PS3 owners not buying this game are losing out on one of the best FPS experiences this gen.
BrianG  +   1655d ago
I just got crysis 2, I'm about half way through the single player. I already beat KZ3.

I have to say KZ3 is visually, and technically a more sound and polished game.

Crysis 2's lighting is top notch almost all the time, but the graphical issues and bugs are so apparent it detracts from what would be an extremely beautiful game. Texture load ins everywhere, shadow issues, weird clipping issues, floating objects, low resolution textures, etc....

That coupled with the less than smart AI which tends to do nothing some times. It seems their solution for that is to offer up never ending enemies. You clear out a place, wait a minute and people are behind you shooting. Never ending AI doesn't make better AI. I also had a weird sound bug where it sounded like a silenced gun was shooting constantly for 10 mins. I get stuck on nothing at times in the battlefield.

All around KZ3 just feels more polished, visually, performance, and gameplay wise. Now these are my opinions, I'll probably get around to doing a review on here for Crysis 2 to talk about all these issues, I'll also try to get pictures and videos for proof since there are hundreds of instances throughout the game. But those who've already played it probably know what I'm referencing.

END RANT, haha, well opinion piece.
Laika  +   1655d ago
i agree 100% with crysis 2 and not being as polished. when i played it all the bugs bothered me for a game that is supposed to be "best looking game ever". plus the overall image was blurry and just looked low res compared to killzone.
talltony  +   1655d ago
Brian You are absolutely correct and I dont care what anyone says. Crysis 2 is amazing looking at times but it lacks the polish, textures, and clarity that kz3 has, it is quite obvious.

Their are times in kz3 when so much stuff is happening on screen at once and you wont notice any visual downgrade at all but you cant say the same about crysis 2 with even less things going on at once. I mean just look at this vid. http://www.youtube.com/watc...

and i was starting to think i was playing different game than everybody else. crysis is visually stunning simply because of the hole photo-realistic theme thats about it.

the games have shit load of bugs i can pretty much confirm of the flaw you mention
pop pups, shadow issues, floating objects/npcs, low res

and dont get me started on the AI my first playthrought was on superhuman difficulty it felt like i was playing on extremely super easy they don't do much i means just standing on the corner, getting stuck on environment(specially on steps) , running on one place, walking and shouting trough walls, recycling AI the list goes on

this games surely not polish at all it felt like the sacrifice every else for visual

and for those who's saying KZ3 is showing action packed scene and Crysis is not... well, you can thank god that on KZ3, they're not showing the giant robot scene.

They play sells? Ironically the more a game sells the more people you know PLAY it, so really 360 fanboys play more games because on average, their exclusives sell more. As a side note Kz2 was deserted 3 months after launch, how many fanboys do you think were playing that game then? I swear I saw more people on here defending it then people in the actual servers. WORLDWIDE.

in the end i like crysis due to the gameplay, it feels like to me a hybrid of COD and halo, and thats just awesome!

both are incredible looking games though!
