As gamers have seen is the case with countless forthcoming PlayStation 3 exclusives, one game that catches the eye where the visual evolution from its predecessor is amazing is inFamous 2.
That's an Uncharted 2 type leap in graphics right there.
one word - beautiful
Well anything else would be kinda sad. Infamous 1 is two years old.. the last two years were AMAZING, graphics wise. Anything besides a leap forward would be disappointing as hell.
I was exited for this game already but I'm currently replaying inFamous for the trophies and it got me more exited for this. Oh, and I'm one trophy away from platinum. I have 349/350 blast Shards. 1 shard away! I've spent the last day running through the whole city looking for it and nothing :( hope I can get it before 2 comes out!!!
Forget the second part of my comment above^^ I did it!!!I found the last shard!! Platinum trophy added to my collection!!! AAHHHHHHH :)
This just shows a reminder of how good Infamous 1 looked. It had graphical glitches, but it was still a great looking game.
This is just Amazing! can't wait for this freaking game...
i don't get it... infamous 2 looks good by comparison, but the first one looked downright bad. it wasn't as bad as prototype's graphics, but it certainly wasn't pretty. so many things looked the same and lacked detail. the cars, the people, the enemies (excluding the bosses n such), etc.. when the characters moved, they looked like robots...even the jaws, neck, and eyes moved, talked, and blinked mechanically. it's cool if you liked the game, i can see why some people enjoyed it; but lets not give it credit for something it wasn't. it was not a visually impressive game. i know i'll get killed with disagrees here and probably even be labeled as a troll just cuz i don't share your opinions, but just go look at it (it's most telling in the cut scenes - how low budget it looks), but it's pretty weak everywhere. *looks forward to the "you probably don't even have a ps3" accusations*
WOW, disagree with my comment 1.1.1?? Unbelievable. Stating truth and drawing a conclusion that NO real gamer would deny. Some of you guys are such tools. Get a f*in life.
why arent these pics next to each other?? annoying man dam
How can you tell when the I2 pictures are so tiny? They're all like, 300p.
i know right, the pic of him shooting the electric from the first game is huge compared to number 2
u have to click each picture twice... http://gamerpunch.net/wp-co... Sure, I'd want 720p at least. But on well... :(
Such low res screenshots are kind of pointless really. I know the game is going to be great, but I honestly don't see any kind of phenomenal visual evolution in these screenshots. If I didn't know better I would think they were from the same game.
well if they upped the res the comments here would be the opposite of what you're seeing now. low res pictures look good that's all there is to it. jack up the res to 720 and fullscreen it and it's one of the most ugliest things you'll ever see.
IMO infamous 2 is potentially GOTY of 2011...
I doubt it. If anything it will be LBP 2, UC3, Elder Scrolls 5, or La Noire.
they wanted to give infamous 2 uncharted 2's treatment and want to see even bigger jump than the one uncharted 2 saw from uncharted 1. and from everything we have seen this game is nothing short of maybe the best of game 2011
Horrible incompetent comparison.
Yep,and this game is must have!!!
And so I shall!
It's impressive how far this game has come
I hope the missions get the same treatment.
from what I've seen and read they have.
Yep, and if you ever get bored of their missions, you can play ones other people make or make your own.
2011 is so hot infamous 2 followed by Uncharted 3 and all the multiplats that are hot too need some money
Not to mention Resistance 3.
And Batman, and Skyrim....
And Rage and Twisted Metal
And Battlefield 3
I so want to add the Last Guardian.
and Gears of war 3
What a vicious cycle! You have the money to play all the games, but no time. Then, when you get laid off; you have the time, but really shouldn't spend all the money! Life's not fair!
and tellytubbies the movie
tekken tag team 2 Mw3 final fantasy versus
agreed not to mention some handheld games like FF type-0, Persona 2: innocent sin, ocarina of time, etc gaming is an expensive hobby and i can't keep up anymore >.<
Nobody likes Assassins Creed? why are so many disagreeing with Ascalon94, it's like the only game that loads of people disagreed on. I'm not calling anybody out, I'm just interested to know why there is so much hate for Assassins Creed, especially since it is quite popular with a lot of people, usually anyway.
assassin creed is a great game , people just afraid of something they call it milking , i don't mind play another assassin creed or even 3 assassin creed games , it's fun so why not ... people are complicated , they like stupid games like halo and hate games like assassin creed ... assassin creed always get improved , so they can't call it milking ... thy even called god of war milked even though the ps3 only had one game ... they didn't call uncharted or resistance or street fighters or haaaaaaaaaaalo ..etc milked because they like the game , but if they don't like the game they call it milked ...
Def the best looking game of this gen
Best open world maybe, not the best though.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim looks nice, too.
Best looking huge Boss this gen IMO.
OH YEAH CRONOS I FORGOT. But he was a level. I'm talking about fucking up an entire city trying to take down a monster.
Yeah, gotta agree. Cronos is the baddest for me.
Great improvement, that is how dedicated Devs can use the capabilities of the PS3, smooth gameplay, big explosions, lighting, particles, details. Great work!
it looks good for a console open world game, it won't win any graphic awards anywhere except at a sony fanboy club, it will be a fun game The Witcher 2 is the best looking game in the world right now, followed by; metro2033 dx11 -pc Crysis 1 w/realism mods-pc Crysis 2 1600p-pc Stalker CoP DX11-pc Dirt 2 DX11 X3 Terran 1600p-pc Alien vs. Predator DX11-pc Arma 2 max settings 1600p-pc ........ ........ ........ it will be a long, long, long time until this list ever gets close to a console game, and when it does, infamous 2 will still have to wait behind uncharted 2, killzone 2, god of war 3, ...........
Well if i was to play those games on my PC they wouldn't look anywhere near as good as as the first wave of games from this gen consoles. PC gaming is a double edge sword....yea sure you can brag about how good the graphics CAN be but it's not like everyone is gonna be able to play them maxed out...hell I bet most people who buy them can't even run them maxed. For me though it's always gameplay before graphics, it's just nice when you can get both. ONTOPIC: Kinda sucks they use such small photo's for the comparison because the smaller the photo usually the better looking you can make a game appear. I'll just wait till we get some HD screen comparisons.
Oh look, PC graphics talk in a comment about an article concerning a console game's graphics. What a uh... surprise.
"it won't win any graphic awards anywhere except at a sony fanboy club" Talking about fanboys, pc elitists are not better at all, no one can be a snob like them.
just imagine how much better the PS3 graphics would be over computer graphics if we could mod a ps3 like you could a computer
would still be no match because devs would lose their ability to optimize because not all the specs of ps3s will be the same.
Its graphical improvement is only matched by the tiny a** screenshots :)
Looks fantastic! I looking forward for this game. For me, infamous 2 and Uncharted 3 are most anticipated games of 2011. I love Sony for games like this. Thanks!
Yep, been waiting for inFamous 2 since I finished the first and going through Uncharted: DF again just got me really excited for number 3. Not that I needed to be more hyped...
I will 100% agree with this article. I loved inFamous to death and played the hell out of it. And when I walked into gamestop today I saw a kid playing inFamous 2 and the first thing that caught my eyes was the amazing graphics jump. Game feels like the 1st one, but upgraded ALOT. I'm gonna buy it midnight release ^_^
please tell me they took out that change in his pocket sound everytime he moved.. i loved the game but that annoyed the hell out of me..
That was his balls man ;P
WELL.... i hope they cut his balls out the game..
I thought I was experiencing an audio glitch the first time I started playing. I stopped noticing it as I played. I believe that sound was his shoes squeaking.
Best Looking Open-World Game Out There!!!
These pice don't do the game justice, as in motion is where this game shows it's medal. It really is butter smooth, & such a graphical leap over the original that it's nuts. People saying the jump is like Unchartered to Unchartered 2 are selling inFamous 2 short, as Unchartered 1 was graphically very close to Unchartered 2, but the overall production, vistas & such just made the overall package better. Whereas, inFamous to inFamous 2, when seen running, inFamous 2 is astonishingly better in graphics alone....Then after watching a few minutes of gameplay, you realize that every facet of the production is phenominally better than the original. I just wish it lived up to it's name as a sandbox game & allowed you to do certain thing synonomous with open world sandbox games, as the original did feel limited in the fact that you could not pick up enemies weapons & use them, or jump in a car, truck or the such & drive it. Don't get me wrong, I loved the 1st game & Cole's electro powers made getting around & disposing of enemies rather effortless & welcome alternatives to the usual machine guns, & high speed sports cars....but thats the thing, they should have been alternatives, instead of the only option, as it limited the game & took away the open world tag as far as I'm concerned. I know the new game will also be lacking the only two nit picks I can find with the original, & instead will improve the awesome foundation that Sucker Punch has already laid, with new move sets, new weapons, faster, more fluid, natural feeling, traversing around city & the like. So no doubt a day 1 buy for me, as loved the 1st mostly, & 2nd looks almost too good to be true & makes me happy I have a PS3......but I will play it, just like the 1st, & will be getting shot by surrounding enemies with automatic weapons, then once I take them all out with some electric asskicking moves, I will run up to my enemies death spots & wonder where there weapon went, why I can't pick it up, & such. To me it just adds another alternative to how you play a game, plus it's always fun to take someones car & hoon around the city in it, crashing, smashing, skidding & bashing your newly aquired toy. Plus you could have tactics like, when approaching a enemy base, or large hudled up group of enemies, you could drive the car straight towards at high speeds, then use your powers to create an electrical fire under the hood (near fueline), then once you have your foes lined up perfectly, you jump from the giant hand grenade-esque before the timer runs out, & kablam....you take out a bunch of enemies with a awesome tactic like that. Ahhh well, I can dream.
Im pretty sure the devs told us why he doesnt drive or use enemy weapons (guns) because he has the electric current going through him it would just fry the car (hence why he could power some of the larger vehicles in the missions), and then holding a gun would set off all the bullets while its in his hand = no more hand... I really enjoyed Infamous and cant wait for the 2nd one.
The graphics look good but they don't look much different than the last one. I'm not saying they aren't better or the graphics suck, I'm simply saying I am not seeing the improvements.
There's a pretty significant jump in graphical fidelity from Infamous to Infamous 2. Take a look at the environments for one. They have been given a lot of love. Textures seem to be more detailed and the lighting seems to have also been bumped up. It might not be the quantum leap that most boast about. However, I might be one of the rare people that didn't see that same leap in graphics in Uncharted. I thought that UC 2 looked better for sure...but the first was no ugly duckling. It held it's own against the best graphics of it's time.
I think the lightning looks better in the first (Going by those screen's).
Infamous 2 is the next PS3 that I plan to buy. The first game was a good game but the GFX looked like crap.
Something tells me that this game is going to get unfairly hammered by critics. Lbp2 took a small hit, killzone 3 three took a MAJOR hit, and infamous 2 will be next. Just wait to see the ridiculous claims that will try to justify the unfair scores. Bet on it. -too much variety -cole looks/sounds too generic -zero replay value (despite level edition) -ps3 exclusive
hope for the beta soon, it looks very prosimising, as well as the beta of uc3 of course.
Only on PS3
