Here's what the big open world games on PS4 look like side-by-side.
Not sure this is really a fair comparison. Inf will look better of course, but that's because there isn't as much going on "behind the scenes". Watch Dogs is a deeper game, so there's a trade off there.
WD is a better game altogether.
No, hacking isn't better than having super human abilities. I do like watchdogs though
Aidan is very much like a super hero with his hacking power. If you ask for "alien" powers, though, you'd have to say Batman is not a super hero.
Gotta love the dynamic weather in I:SS...oh wait
It is over all, more depth, better story, hacking is better than those "powers" with are more less the same thing but they just have didnt effects. More reply ability.
You can't compare the two. You're talking about a dead city in infamous, where there's no interaction with anything other than the enemies... compared to a lively city where you can interact with everyone and almost everything in Watchdogs. The fact that watchdogs looks three quarters as good as infamous is a testament to how far Ubisoft went to make the game looks so good with so much going on. A lot of those pictures, also arent a one-to-one comparison. There are pictures in infamous that have shadowing going on, that are in broad daylight with no shadows in watchdogs. If you're going to make a comparison you have to have two pictures that are like each other, at the same time of day, with the same weather affecting everything, going on. I'm not saying infamous is a bad looking game, it's incredible. What I'm saying is watchdogs can't be compared to it, because it has so much more going on in the city. It has a lot of systems interacting with each other to bring the weather, time of day, wind and rain to game players. Something that infamous doesn't have. So you're sort of comparing apples to oranges. Both games are powerhouses for the system and both have their strengths and weaknesses. I think overall, watchdogs is the better looking game, because there is so much more going on in the city to make it feel alive. You can interact with almost everything. And there is so much more to do in that game world than there is in infamous.
i played watchdogs ultra settings with high end pc.got to say even ps3:s Gta V looks better.Rockstar can made miracles.This Watchdogs graphics are big joke.
uhh...We're comparing graphics, Not the whole game. Infamous easily beats WatchDogs.
Have you physically played either games?? This myth that Infamous SS is an NPC empty game is just ridiculous. It has more NPC's than Watch Dogs although I agree they're not as varied & lower AI http://www.youtube.com/watc... Also Watch_Dogs graphics even at Ultra settings are creeping beyond mediocre at best! I have both games SS & WD on a gaming PC & SS is undeniably & unquestionably the better looking game!
I agree with you, and I finished that boring and empty Infamous game. Please hate..
And in gameplay both are average?
Much more going on in Watch Dogs' world, and it's far bigger, and critics agree it's a better game
Having played both, I would agree Infamous SS has the visual edge. But for variety and longevity, Watch Dogs has the edge. You can't go wrong with either game. Watch Dogs looks really awesome too though. Highly exaggerated that (PS4) Watch Dogs visuals look bad. Complete crap.
I have both too on PS4....infamous SS does look a lot better, and watch dogs isn't as nice graphically as i imagined it would be....it isnt much better than gta5 on ps3 (had both gta5 and watch dogs on tonight to compare). Battlefield 4 (single and multiplayer) looks better than watch dogs to me, both PS4 versions. Not saying it looks bad as it doesn't. Just not as good as thought it would be. Can't say much about watch dogs story wise yet as only bought it around 6 hours ago and played first mission, been driving and running around looking at the city, hacking camera's, and people for money seeing what can be done....does seem fun though so far.
Having just finished ISS I didn't find a lifeless city, it does have less people and cars compared to WD.The hacking is interesting but ISS' s super power (neon) are really fun. I actually dont see a difference between ISS and WD graphically.
Why would anyone try to compare a multiplatform game to a game designed solely for one console? Infamous has the best graphics of the two hands down. Infamous doesn't have as much going on in the city streets as Watch Dogs, but how is that a bad thing? You're not playing against the city or the npc's, you're playing against enemy Ai and completing missions.
Besides all of the already mentioned reasons for differences there is the fact Infamous is also entirely singleplayer where as WD has multiple online components which need to be tracked seperate from your own involvement. Most of this would be net code reliant but any explosions, AI interaction (getting killed, running away, etc) would still require at least minimal hardware resource usage which would need to be saved even if you never utilize them yourself (singleplayer gamer in other words). Also the fact, even utilizing big budgets and huge Dev teams, the fact WD was developed for cross gen as well as mixed PC setups will have limited it somewhat compared to devoting all resources to a single platform (such as Infamous). It still looks fantastic but I would give Infamous the edge on pure graphical prowess (consistently) where as WD has more you can actually do and IMO has a better living world. There is plenty of room for both though as variety is what keeps things interesting.
Dont have a PS4 yet, but my friend says 2nd Son has the best graphics he's ever seen on a home console.
Imo. Best looking games on this gen of Consoles. Second son Killzone shadowfall BF4 Ryse
Infamous is easily the better looking title. Higher amounts of particle effects, shadows, animations, textures, etc. That's due to it being exclusive, of course. As far as gameplay, I haven't a clue as to which game is better. I loved Infamous SS, but I have yet to play Watch Dogs. My copy should be coming in any time now. I'll reserve my judgements until I have played both.
Infamous is much better looking and more fun to play. For whatever reason i cant seem to get much into wd.
Watch dogs reminds me of Infamous, even though they are very different games.
