Heavy Rain will also do.

... not really mind-blowing. It's an improvement on the original but it looks unfinished and simply lacks that extra level of detail that differentiates the games that truly show off the PS3's monstrous hardware such as MGS4, GT5: Prologue, Uncharted, and even Little Big Planet (tops even GT5 for realism).

Based on these screenshots I don't see anything that couldn't be done on the 360. The textures are good but not great, the water effects are good but not great, the models are good but not great, etc... The lighting is the only thing that looks a bit special and occasionally borders on standalone cgi (particularly the way the foliage is lit). Frankly, I'm a little disappointed.

4 player split screen looks almost as bad as Excite Truck does on single player!

Sorry, just kidding, it doesn't look that bad, but I can see why not many racing titles use split screen these days.
They've obviously cut a lot of the effects that make the game look current gen when splitting into 4.
Still, at least each of the 4 screens will run at 30fps 540p ... hopefully :-)

Single player / online graphics look really good though!

Yeah it does look like they have cut quite a few effects but in the grand scheme of things I think the value of four play split screen more than compensates for these losses. I remember the good old days of playing a game with your mates without there having to be many miles and an inter-networking infrastructure between you. Taunting your mates through that isn't as much fun as doing it face to face!

jtucker784693d ago

Not that I'm saying that 4 player split screen won't be fun...

...Super Mario Kart 2-player split screen was out of this world.

...and Goldeneye was brilliant too.

Hopefully 4 player splitscreen will not degrade the graphics substantially!

The actual game screens look awesome. I just wish they'd put the concept art into a different category.
