Rocksteady is “Amazed” by How Arkham City Looks On Current Gen Consoles

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

I thought it looked the same as the first one.

Batmau52463d ago

Likewise, but the areas seem more vast as a tradeoff.

MaxXAttaxX2463d ago

Looks like a game running on the Unreal engine to me.
In other words, the same LOL

dangert122463d ago

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

ElementX2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

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

dangert122463d ago

should't they be surprised with the themself and not consoles then?

Ducky2463d ago

... isn't ArkhamCity more open than the best-looking 360/ps3 game?

dangert122463d ago

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.

SephirothX212463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

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.

ProjectVulcan2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

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.

Infamous 2 is open world and it looks very good

they should play Uncharted games
or god of war 3
or killzone or gears 3 or INF2
and then they will be “Amazed”

evrfighter2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

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

Taker4Ever2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

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

palaeomerus2463d ago

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.

Sub4Dis2463d ago

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).

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.....

KING_KAI2463d ago

there is still some juice left in the consoles yet

Mr Patriot2463d ago

BF3 says Hi, consoles are dead, you will not see any better looking game than UC3 till PS4

KING_KAI2463d ago

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.

Brownghost2463d ago

uncharted is just a visual trick and not what the ps3 can do just a bunch smoke and mirrrors in my opinion
