Oooooo This or Fallout 3 1st?
both :P this game wont get a 10 tho. more like a 9.3. but day one purchase for me \o/
....looks incredible. Easily will be one of, if not the best looking fps title upon release. Simply stunning environments. Really captured Africa's environment very well. This is definately a must have. Just as peowpeow said in the gamer zone, this and fallout 3 at the same time. Tough choice on which to get first. I strongly believe both are AAA must have titles.
Farcry 2 looks to be the same. The visuals (while great) do NOT drop jaws. Because in 2008, we are too spoiled. I call this the MGS4/KZ2/GT5 effect.
I liked the original Far Cry ... up until the end game boss fight. I didn't have the patience for it because it was so disproportionate to the rest of the game. If they don't make the same mistake in Far Cry 2, count me in.
PC build is gorgeous. Hopefully the console counter parts can look nearly this good and I'll be chuffed :) I'm getting PC (for me) and PS3 (play with mates) versions. This Christmas period is going to cripple me financially.
I'm not impressed, at all. The coloring is nice, shading, so on.. But the depth is lacking, the water is nice, shaded, and flat. Yummy. I expect more these days. Not to say the graphics don't look good, that not what I'm getting at. But when you decide to go out of you way and say "Look at our graphics" they'd better be DAMN amazing.. Because other people out there, are doing so.
those other people dont have 50 sq km of open world that have day/night cycles and dynamic weather effects and foliage that gets affected by it, all seamless with no loading and a full blown map editor....or do they?
Agreed, there's a lot going on in this game. Of course they're going to have to sacrifice a certain amount of graphical detail. I think what they've done is great.
I get what you mean. The game looks amazing no doubt, but I think the characters look out of place, because the atmosphere of the game is so much more detailed than the character models. It's like they made this Crysis-esque Africa, but dumped Oblivion characters in it. But I still thinks it's the best looking FPS on consoles this year (Resistance looks great too though).
looks much better than R2, but not Gears 2. http://www.gamersyde.com/ne... poor droids :(
