Bioshock still looks fantastic, one of my all time favorites.

Beyond: Two Souls on PS3 can compete with modern day graphics.

Same as Killzone 2 and 3, uncharted 2 and 3, Infamous 2, Heavy Rain, Resistance 3

I wish this was entirely true, but you might want to load up Killzone 2 and Resistance 3 again.

@jason I watched some gameplay videos of KZ2 and R3 on my full screen. They are on par or succeed graphically to the first person shooters mentioned in the article that also launched on the seventh generation of consoles. Try the same and see what you think

Killzone 3 was super impressive! I could not believe the graphics back then as I was regularly pausing the game to stand in awe looking at the surroundings! Resistance however did not impress me that much. Heavy rain is also another amazing graphically speaking game. It almost felt next gen

I always thought the first 3 Gears of War games looked great and still hold up for today.

They did for their day. I recently played gears judgement with on the 360 and the draw distance was so blurry. The characters up close look great though

Far Cry 2 was awesome. In addition to having demonstrably better physics and AI than later games in the series, it had a lot of design decisions that, criticized at the time, have since been praised in games like BOTW and Dark Souls.

It might not be super amazing by today's standard but I thought Mgs3 looked really good

JEECE245d ago

In terms of art style it still holds up.

Mafia 2 Definitive Edition Review: Mess Of A Port - Gamer Matters

A decade after the original release, Mafia 2 Definitive Edition isn’t a good remastering of this cult classic.
