Comparing Gears 2 with 5 games that haven't been released yet? You do know that Gears 3 is releasing this year right?
Troll, much?

SilleGamer2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

Hi TheDareDevil,

This is not a troll article.

Gears of War 3 is set to be one of the most visually stunning titles available on the Xbox 360 console.

We are simply listing five titles that we feel are graphically superior , no offense is intended.

SilleGamer2217d ago

Apologies - meant to say we are simply listing five titles that look just as good as Gears of War 3. :)

gamingdroid2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

First of all, are you sure you didn't confuse BF3 graphics on console with PC version?

I can't imagine how anyone can claim BF3 looks better than Gears 3?

The other games, they are great looking games and comes down to preference, but BF3?

From me, you just lost all credibility and earned yourself an instant down rate.

jeseth2217d ago

I don't disagree with any of the examples given and based on each games predecessor. All of these game are excellent looking.

I would also think that the new Assassin's Creed will also be visually impressive. All of the entries so far have been gorgeous considering their scope and scale. Resistance 3, which is flying under the radar due to a underwhelming R2, will also probably be very visually appealing.

Needless to say, Gears 3 looks awesome not just graphically but as an overall package.

Welcome to N4G, where anyone with an opinion will be brutally tortured and rap...I mean yelled at. I see where you were trying to go with this but it does come off as a bit of snobbish. Nice try though.

Solid_Snake-2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

good article and great list.

@Jamzluminati lol your such a fanboy.

The article says Gears 3....not Gears 2. Most of the games are releasing this fall. Could just have easily been titled "6 stunningly gorgeous upcoming games" though.

Anon19742217d ago

They all look fantastic from what I've seen so far. Something that concerns me regarding the visuals in Gears 3 is what were the sacrifices made? I know Gears 2 looked better than the first Gears, but was it just me or was there never more than 4 characters on the screen at one time? Watching video of Gears 3, there doesn't seem to be much going on when you compare it to the sheer number of enemies onscreen we've seen in games like Resistance.

Of this list, I'm looking forward to the new Batman most of all. More than Gears, more than Uncharted - Batman AA blew me away and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel. Not to say I won't be getting Gears3 and Uncharted 3 as well...but you've got to have priorities!

YodaCracker2216d ago (Edited 2216d ago )

@darkride66

Gears 3 has 4-player co-op alone and there are many enemies on screen at the same time.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32216d ago

Darkride66, I can tell you've never played a Gears game, lol. There is ALWAYS stuff going on on-screen at any given time.

BiggCMan2217d ago

I think you misread the article DareDevil. First of all, Gears 3 is probably the least graphically impressive out of all the games on that list (Still a great looking game obviously). And second, it is Gears 3, not Gears 2. The writer is not trying to be biased whatsoever.

TheDareDevil2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

I didn't 'misread' the article. It was written as Gears 2. He edited the article before it got approved. Look at his earlier comment

The earlier title of the article was - 'Five games that look better than Gears 2'.

Jamzluminati2217d ago

Wait, all those games look better than gears 1, 2, and 3. Hell Uncharted 1 looks better than all the gears and all of those games. Except U3 obviously lol.

InNomeDiDio2217d ago

Sorry, but Gears 2 already looked better than Uncharted 1. Uncharted 2 looks better than Gears 2 and Gears 3 will be in the same league as Uncharted 3. There just minor differences that happen because of different setting and locations. Both Games look great.

FunkMcnasty2217d ago

haha! what a blind fanboy statement

lategamer2217d ago

The Gears 3 Beta actually looked just as good as the Uncharted 3 Beta. For those that think Uncharted 3 will blow Gears away are wrong. They both will look great.

Here are some Direct Feed Screens of Gears & Uncharted Beta.

jwk942216d ago

Remember, gears 3 was supposed to come out in march therefore, the gears 3 beta was a near finished game, the uncharted beta wasn't.

Livin_in_a_box2216d ago

Did you play Uncharted 1? Neither did I, but I played the demo and when you loom at the graphics now they're not as good as the Gears graphics. Sorry about that.

As for the article, I just can't see how anyone can claim that Battlefield 3 won't look as good as Gears 3. If you're talking about Xbox 360 only then we haven't seen enough of the graphics on 360 to make a comment, but the PC version of BF3 is stunning, and there is no way anyone can say that the graphics there are not as good as Gears 3. If anyone does then they are a fanboy living in denial.

But I'm sick of these graphics articles now, people treat it as though it's the most important part of the game and if it doesn't have the better graphics, it's a crap game. If you think that then you're an idiot.

Oh no, everyone the high powered gamingdroid has spoken. Jesus, get over your self buddy.

PRHB HYBRiiD2217d ago

Uncharted, batman and battlefield all come out this year too...

likedamaster2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

Gears 3 is looking the best of the 6. You may not like the franchise, but the superior visual quality is obvious.

damn I hate this pixelcounting bs.

ARTSTYLE > GRAPHICS.

One of the reasons Fable looks awesome to me. It just fits.
Do we need a 1080p Mario with real life animation? Hell no.
LBP does not need crazy special effects either.

BattleTorn2217d ago

This can be very true.

I also think smoothness is a key part of immersive graphics.

gamingdroid2217d ago

Art style has always trumped graphics. Perfect example of this is Okami and Borderlands.

That said, I don't see how BF3 of all games look better than Gears 3. Instantly looses credibility!

Downrate the site and move on.

BattleTorn2217d ago

Hmm I hate borderlands "artsyile"

Final fantasy is art style, like Fable

But Borderlands is just complete disregard for graphics.

Post- apocalypse game are by far my favorite, but I found Borderlands just went out of it's way to have bad graphics

Now it has an upcoming sequel and they are sticking with their "artstyle"

gamingdroid2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

I actually really liked Borderlands, it was very unique. I also loved Prince of Persia reboot that DaPrinz mentioned below.

In fact, I also liked the grey look of the first Gears of War better than the second more colorful one. Destroyed beauty truly was beautiful!

However, reality is that graphics is all personal preference, but that art style has the biggest impact.

DaPrintz2217d ago

I agree with that. An hd Okami could stand toe to toe with any of the heavy hitters this gen. I also really liked the Prince of Persia reboot. El Shaddai is another stunner.

StrongMan2217d ago

It's funny how people know how UNRELEASED games will look. Haven't we all been fooled by screenshots? Alan Wake, anyone?

SilleGamer2217d ago

Can we just state that no offence in the least is intended by articles like these.

We are gamers just like everybody else and would just like an opportunity to say what titles we feel look absolutely stunning - games such as Gears of War 3 & Uncharted 3. They all deserve credit.

Anyway, happy gaming everyone!

ElDorado2217d ago

Ok, I can accept that, but why didn't you guys include God of War 3, Killzone 3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves & Crysis 2. They all ook better than Gears of War 3. Killzone 3 is the current king of console graphics, but Drake's Deception will be the king in November.

FunkMcnasty2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

Don't worry SilleGamer,

The problem is you just happened to post this article to a website that is unabashedly pro-ps3 and generally, anti everything else. Really, you're only 'mistake' was saying in the first paragraph that "Gears 3 is set to rival Naughty Dog's beautifully stunning Uncharted 3." I'm sure that's what got the flamewar started... And then by continuing through the article, you happened to mention that the two games will be "on-par" graphically. Ps3 Fanboys don't want to hear that an Xbox exclusive might actually look as good as Uncharted 3!

Who knows. Only this Fall, will we know how the two exclusives stack up graphically, but i cant argue that both the Gears and Uncharted franchises have always been the graphical benchmarks for thier consoles

BattleTorn2217d ago

Good list, but Batman?

Is this true?
