Crysis just made it out to the xbox 360 after 4 years, but can it perform?
art style from the pc version looks far more realistic and shadows is better, draw distance, textures,.... well the pc version just looks better in every aspect. Cryengine 2 is still better than the Cryengine 3.
except the fugly lighting.
The lighting on the pc version is much better.
Don't buy into the hype man. Like I said years ago crysis will never look close to PC on consoles. Maybe next Gen. It still looks good though don't get me wrong. just don't be delusional. there is NO COMPARISON ABSOLUTELY NONE.
I'm sorry, but if anyone can look at this video and say the 360 version looks better in any way, then you're just plain stupid. Trade your PC in for a Wii, because thats what you deserve.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Plus this in 1080p. About time someone did a comparison on the PC's terms @ 1080p to show the true difference. For too long sites have cut PC off at the legs down to 720p to compare, when no one plays in 720p on PC, nearly everyone plays at one higher resolution or another. Even with youtube's compression it is obvious the gap is vast. I got disagrees yesterday for saying that the console version looks great- IF you had not seen it side by side with the PC one. Well if you disagreed, watch these videos.
I can always tell when pc/xbox 360/ps3 gamers comment on something that their fighting to keep better on their platform, lol. All these comments crack me up. "OBVIOUSLY" this game looks much better here on the Xbox 360, everything is better, now yes you see a farther draw distance in "1" scene on pc, well that's maybe b/c an excellent lighting system is being used on the 360 or maybe pc draws better farther, regardless. Seriously, the game is much much better on the consoles now and remember most people, not you hardcore pc gamers but most can't run at the same settings that this is, "BUT" it still looks hella great on the pc after all these years and some big patches to boost it. Were all just fortunate that we can play it on consoles now.
you are "OBVIOUSLY" laughable lol
awww thanks for the comment back little man:)
Whoa! Crytek did an excellent job so far putting Crysis on the CryEngine 3. The game looks very good on the 360 and consolers are in for a treat as long as the Crysis game play stays true which i'm sure Crytek did since they went the extra mile on this conversion. Good Job Crytek and the 360 version looks GREAT!! The CryEngine 2 was never meant for consoles as it requires lots of GPU power to get maximum results but once the maximum results are achieved you can clearly see the beauty of the Cryengine 2. Not to take away from the great looking 360 version but the CryEngine 2 just offers way more photo realistic gameplay and the Pc hardware allows for more detail, texture depth, and animation.
They did do a great job on consoles...i remember hearing EVERYWHERE that neither console could come 'close' to Crysis visually...here it is...and considering the age of the consoles, its more than acceptable... the physics are there, the animation is there, and the entire world is there...it just falls short on textures, res, and AA...but sitting 10 feet back from a 46" TV; i never care about those things... too bad they didn't fix the original'a AI though...saw a few game videos earlier...its still hot trash...
darn it now i want to play crysis on pc again!
Who'da known? POS consoles.
The pc version is modded and on very high.
whats the problem with that? You don't want them to gimp the pc version to look worse than the xbox version do you? Unlike the other gimped pc vs xbox comparisons this obviously shows the superiority of the pc graphics. A $600 pc can easily run this at the setting the video is running at. And anyways the pc version is not modded in this comparison. If you want to see modded then you are in for a surprise ;)
@turgore Ummm, no, the PC version is NOT modded. And so what if the settings are on Very High? What, we PC users should gimp our version in both resolution AND settings so that you can feel better about your console port? The only way to appropriately compare the two is to max out the PC version to make it look as pretty as it can. Otherwise, what's the point? Still, it's pretty sad that a four year-old game, made on a far less optimized engine (CE2), is far superior to its console brethren.
Of course it's on high......Finally we a proper PC vs. Console comparison where they are not running the PC version on some GIMPED settings. and NO it is not modded! I play Crysis PC with the immersion mod and other high texture mods and Crysis console or Crysis PC vanilla DO NOT even compare to Crysis with Mods. Nice attempt at trolling though but EPIC FAIL!
Don't bother, dude; it never occurs to these console fanboys that maybe we know what we're talking about because we play both PCs AND consoles and see the differences firsthand, unlike them.
Crysis with mods can even compete with the likes of Battlefield 3 and Metro 2033 ! :)
Yeh Crysis with mods is just flat-out sick to the point that every other game almost looks like crap. Crysis w/ immersion mod BF3 GTAIV w/ icenhamcer mod Arma II with Ace mod 2 Metro2033 Stalker Call of Pripyat Complete and a few others.... are like the sickest graphical titles!!
I am the creator of the video. If you take the time to watch the second half, you could see that I had used footage using very low PC settings as well. Also: The PC footage which I recorded myself, was not modded in any way.
Both versions look great, but the PC version looks much more realistic. It seems like they exaggerated on the lighting effects to make the console version look good.
Where is f*cked ps3? Xbox: no grass, less draw distance, sub-hd, low-res textures, blurred rocks, low framerate.
comparing to 360 is silly because it was never gonna look as good as PC. I still cant believe i get to play this bad boy on consoles though!
I created the video for lighthearted fun out of curiosity. That is all.
The biggest difference between the Cryenegine 2 and Cryenegine 3 is the lightening.
The colours on the xbox version are way off.
There's really no contest. The PC version is MUCH more lush. Granted, the game STILL has problems running on current-gen PC's four years later....
what are you talking about i been able to play crysis 2 just fine since 2009
...? I'm talking about Crysis 1, which is still a beast to get running smoothly on current tech.
nope not at all hard to run don't know how you are getting that
Just to be clear, I am talking about the first game. The second game did not have NEARLY the amount of performance issues the first game had. I don't know if you've only played the second game and are assuming that the first game would run fine, but that's definitely not the case.
Wow PC looks good, got a more realistic look.
ofc PC version looks better, but the ps3 & 360 version of crysis just proves even more that crysis wasn't coded good for pc. They should remake crysis 1 for pc with cryengine 3 and DX11.
That'll be the day... Crytek couldn't care less about PC gamers. They're sellouts.
Yeah and they are wasting their talent on a f*cking kinect game -_-
Console version looks good, but it seems like they over use the lighting and distance blur to hide some things. But it still looks awesome.
lmfao @ crysis on console..thats all folks
Amazing comparison! I will definitely be going back to that site for comparison vids. Now down to business; I bought the 360 version and still admit the PC is leagues better looking. The little things make a big difference. However, it still looks great considering how old the hardway is, it was 20 bucks well spent.
This one amazing, too?
Water, alpha and lighting look better on the console version, it's just a benefit of the newer engine. The overall picture still looks better on PC because of the amazing amount of foliage, better res and no ugly artifacts - this should be a jungle after all and the extra horsepower of the PC makes it an amazingly looking one. Crysis 1 on the Crysis 2 engine for the Pc would have been awesome.
this is a RAM issue, surely.
Why does my comparison using vanilla DX10 Very High Crysis on PC look vastly different to this video which claims to use vanilla PC footage. My vanilla DX10 Crysis PC video is embedded below as "Related Video." My version's sun is orange and in a different spot at the same moment in time. The OP's video is a different color sun and is at a different angle. What gives? And The OP's "vanilla" video: http://youtu.be/xQ_1mcnH2yQ
