Back when I had my PS2 and the game, i would stare at the buildings and the cars flying in Planet Kenwar. Graphics were mindblowing to me in that time. It's a shame to me this game doesn't have that same soundtract. That would have been a kick in the childhood similar to Twilight Princess's Sacred Grove (Saria's song)

Would be funny if if the old music could be toggled on in sttings or earned with like skillpoints. :D
Big head mode!!!

I think what is neat about this game is it will once again be a demo for what the PS4 is capable of. Can't wait to play this game in all is PS4 glory.

Blashted3055d ago

Wish they would've gone 60fps instead. 30fps is so choppy. The graphics look good but frame rate over eye candy any day.

Guyfamily9993055d ago

Gah, the disagrees. I unfortunately only have a 720p TV, so I'm constantly wishing I had the option to switch down to 720p for a higher framerate.

FoxyGotGame3055d ago

R&C is 30fps ..it looks smooth in videos, but if that's too choppy for you ...go play on a respectable PC and quit crowing /

Not my type of game. But the graphics, gameplay, and animations scream of instant classic for everyone who does enjoy these.

It's not the ideal situation but Sony does offer them on ps plus. I to would just like a big ass compilation on doscto though

Insomniac roadmap leaked a while ago and they are making another, they’re doing the best they can and these games, especially the last two, are master pieces

Strange with the ps5 being amd based it would of been more optimized for amd gpu's.

mkis007362d ago (Edited 362d ago )

Lets see just how widespread these issues are... doesnt make a bit of sense because the game was made for amd hardware.

: oh its just complaining over amd's poor implementation of things on the pc side.

PunksOnN4G362d ago

Why would it be its obvi on AMD drivers

mkis007362d ago (Edited 362d ago )

Maybe you are not up to date on the current state of AMD's Raytracing support and FSR.

Please tell me were you got never sony from in my comment?

"Please tell me were you got never sony from in my comment?"

This is a first party title.
Released and poorly optimised. You jump straight to AMD being completely at fault as if TLoU PC port didn't happen.

Christopher362d ago (Edited 362d ago )

AMD themself said it was a driver issue.

generic-user-name362d ago

You should probably make sure it is Sony before trying to fling mud.

ModsDoBetter362d ago

@Generic with the cope:

From DigitalFoundry,

"The comparison, which was shared by Digital Foundry, was accompanied by a written analysis that goes over some of the port's best features, such as good scalability, which allows players with the proper hardware to enjoy much better visuals than on PlayStation 5 and those with underpowered machines to have still a decent experience barring some stuttering, and issues, such as missing transparency effects at max settings, texture loading issues, shadows issues with ray tracing enabled, stability issues and more. With the additional disabling of ray tracing on AMD GPUs due to stability issues, it feels like this is yet another port that was launched in an unpolished state and that will require multiple patches to be in a truly acceptable one."

"it feels like this is yet another port that was launched in an unpolished state and that will require multiple patches to be in a truly acceptable one."

This is not solely an issue with AMD, the port is "yet another" with missing features.

AMD has always been crap compared to Nvidia. The only advantage they have is price.
