RipTen: Batman: Arkham City is shaping up to be bigger and better than it’s predecessor in every way. That means story, gameplay, and of course… graphics.
I thought it looked the same as the first one.
Likewise, but the areas seem more vast as a tradeoff.
Looks like a game running on the Unreal engine to me. In other words, the same LOL
funny thing is it does not look better then the best xbox game or best ps3 game visually still they are surprised by current gen consoles? lol ok
Well, Rocksteady has only produced one game in addition to Batman and that's Urban Chaos last gen. It's amazing what they've accomplished for not having the experience
should't they be surprised with the themself and not consoles then?
... isn't ArkhamCity more open than the best-looking 360/ps3 game?
@FatOldMan I don't no never played it but its not like any of the games that allow good exploration on ps3 even begin to push its visuals well none of seen
Let 'em be excited about it.
UC, KZ and GOW are great franchises but are all corridor games and extremely linear. Thus great graphics in a more open game such as Arkham City is more impressive.
It looks great. I have been replaying the PC version of Arkham Asylum with nvidia 3D vision and physx enabled- its actually one of the best looking games ever when you take into account the quality of the 3D mode on PC(it has a nearly perfect stereoscopic mode), truly breathtaking and an epic experience. If this is only a small improvement on AA with the size of the areas and the same level of 3D vision quality on PC it'll be one of the most immersive games you could play on any platofrm.
@sephiroth Infamous 2 is open world and it looks very good
@ Iroquois Your point being?
agreed they should play Uncharted games or god of war 3 or killzone or gears 3 or INF2 and then they will be “Amazed”
Uncharted is not open like certain city will be. God of war may as well have been a side scroller. Bad comparisons. If what I'm reading is correct its going to be borderline sandbox with arkham asylum graphics Still not enough to get wowed over imo
@evrfighter God of war .. a side scroller ??? i know you are a 360 only gamer thats why you don't know any thing about gow games it has fixed camera but the scale of this game and the gfx are incredible nothing i have ever seen on consoles can match it but killzone/uncharted it looks like a movie
GoW3 has a fixed camera. The supposed "scale" of the game is just when that camera is zoomed out. A big guy who takes up most of the screen with a little tiny guy hanging on his face is NOT that hard to do. Nor are the graphics incredible. They only look nice when nothing much else is on the screen and get a lot less detailed when there is a lot on the screen. It has a lot of back drops that you can't even go towards. It's all tricks not power.
If GOW didnt have a fixed camera it would hinder gameplay like in Ninja Gaiden. Getting killed from behind on Ninja Gaiden because i didnt know that the enemy was there makes me want to smash my controller.
It's amazing how badly you boys need GoW3 to be loved and respected by everyone. You try way too hard. On-topic: Rocksteady earned my loyalty and praise with Arkham Asylum. Such a beautiful game, well written, gorgeous gameplay, phenomenal atmosphere. A true joy to play and the type of experience that destroys any and all notions that the best games exist as only as exclusives.
funny, cuz none of the games you mentioned amazed me. the only games that have visually amazed me in the last 6 years were crysis and farcry 2 (on pc), and maybe bad company 2 multiplayer (on pc).
Batman looks like Marcus Fenix with a cape.
can´t wait for this
The amount of detail they are putting into the game (same if not more detail) and having it a fairly large open world is awesome. I'm just sad the Collector's Edition sucked.....
there is still some juice left in the consoles yet
BF3 says Hi, consoles are dead, you will not see any better looking game than UC3 till PS4
$1000 says goodbye.
year after year better looking games come out on both 360 and ps3. fair enough both systems are 100% utilized but as we have seen, fine tuning leads to wonderful things.
uncharted is just a visual trick and not what the ps3 can do just a bunch smoke and mirrrors in my opinion
...and none of the screens in article are from the consoles.
Can't wait for this game!
if they are amazed with this then they will be speechless and flabbergasted with how it looks on next gen consoles lol.
So excited for Arkham City. Rocksteady... keeping things dope.
People still say dope? LOL
It's the bees's knees, boss.
CAN I GET A WHOOMP THERE IT IS
Hey let me ride that donkey............Please?
Arkham City looks both nifty and totally badical.
This game is like Assassins creed with Batman instead of Ezio/Altair, which is a good thing, cause i love Assassins creed :)
I agree. Although I thought brotherhood was a little dry.
im suprised @ how alot of games look on current gen consoles and alot @ how shi**y some look these are best batman games ever. never thought i would hav ever been praising a batman game
Same here but imo Batman is the best super hero game of ALL TIME
its better on pc anyway, and physx is there too
Is this game in 3D too? Arkham Asylum looked amazing in 3D.
all nvidia powered games in 3d nowadays
Don't know why you got some many disagrees, because it will be way better on pc, and yes has physx which makes almost every game i have played it with amazing.
I think the reason he got disagree's is because he is taking this story, which is about consoles, and bringing up the PC. Why bring up the PC? Either he wants to justify his loyalty to PC, justify his purchase of a PC, idk. Either way it was inappropriate.
I'm not sure what you're talking about. I'm justifying my purchase of a PC right now by writing this post. It's a PC, it really does everything.
because its annoying
Rocksteady showed be how wrong i was to write off the unreal engine completely. It was my sleeper hit of that year. Totally enjoyed it. My only gripe was i spent a high proportion of the game in that bat-view thing. I couldn't live without it to the point where the natural look of certain levels look strange...sad...i'd become the dark knight;) That being said i think rocksteady arguably done a better job than epic did in terms of their limited experience with both the engine AND current hardware's. I only say this because some people thought batman aa had the best graphics on the 360. Being considered for such an accolade is a feat in itself. d14me
It reminds me of GTA IV, the graphics are fairly good but not ground breaking on the otherhand though their incredibly detailed. Like they have all these littles things that slot of other games are lacking.
"AMAZED" will beat the "MIND-BLOWING, BLOW YOU AWY" stuff...mark my words
then imagine how good it could look if they optimized it for pc. it would blow anything on consoles out of the water and have you console fanboys weeping lol I forgot even bulletstorm pc already does that :P ps ftw consoles are for noobs and the less privileged. consoles do have alot of good exclusive games that make up for the low end graphics though I wish devs would focus on pc the way they do on consoles, not all pc gamers are pirates
confirm MLAA on ps3 please
not that i care about the disagrees, but it's either going to be MLAA....or nothing (like the first one, with jaggies galore). i'm still getting the ps3 version tho
How about some proper lighting work, the first one was so bright it killed the atmosphere.
Is this a joke
Urban Chaos last generation was FUN. Underrated multiplayer with less than 100 people online. Im not surprised Rocksteady making gems this generation.
I`ve watched extremely good graphics, but very rarely played it.
Aren't Rocksteady making Batman Arkham City? Its not really a non biased statement is it?, I don't think it looks that impressive tbh.
Oh come on what are you disagreeing with now?
I hate when people disagree and don't tell why... >:(
The fact that you don't think it looks impressive, but I'm sure you've long since damaged your vision with all the fapping you've been doing to Nathan Drake.
@artynerd The graphics are good not "amazing" Being a fanboy is what makes you blind to what's in front of you.
Depends what your Lod is, and how good you can stream textures. Shaders are a given. But crysis 2 on consoles looked good imo, and i think with more time, would have run alot better. Uncharted 1&2 still look fantastic, and no! not every game has to be openworld. Me likes a good story. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Still amazes me. Like a movie.
I think the game looks great for a multi-plat.
Look forward to playing this. I thought the first looked awesomez
It is a beautiful game. My rig can take it in PhysX...untill Scarecrow's little world that is.
There is more PhysX on Batman's cape than inside your entire console bwahahahaaaa :-p
