Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin demo is available to play now on the PS5. It comes with two visual modes but both run at 1080p.
Game looks stuck in the PS3 era.
The combat and job system is very good. Als liked the boss fight alot. But yeah everything else needs a serious upgrade.
But the chaos is next gen. ;) /s
It doesn’t look like this game but for some reason the art style kind of reminds me of Quantum Theory.
if only people are THIS critical towards graphics when it comes to Nintendo...sigh...
This game was a lot of fun to play, but a ton of performance flaws for visuals that seem on the dated side. If they can polish this game up and have better presentation then this can be a super fun game.
It's like 1 year away so they will polish the visuals. This is Square after all.
However, this is so not Square Enix. All their games looks amazing even in Low Budget game (Trails of Mana), Beta (Realm Reborn), Demo ( FFXV very first Demo from Type 0), early Trailers (Kingdom Hearts 3). Especially, the Japanese sector, they are superb. But this is just 1 year before the release and looks so profoundly terrible. I have said this many times before, for very first time I actaully hope SE will delay this as their old habit. The gameplay sure can be the best Soul inspired game, but everything else is incredibly pathetic.
This is made by Team Ninja, did you see what they just did to Ninja Gaiden? And that's their own baby
@AnnaDea Team Ninja made this game.
"Team Ninja made this game." They are part of the dev team, yes.
I noticed the resolution looked somewhat dull. 1080p resolution in video games is so dated now.
Resolution is part of it. Even if this game actually released in 8k it will still look so bad. Why? Because of this game is packed with bad models, shallow textures, outdated lighting andpathetic filters. Some old games on PC still looks amazing in 1080p only because of amazing detailed textures. You know what forgot about PC with expensive GPU, even Hoizon Zero Dawn looks million light years better than this on base PS4 which probably barely hits 1080p. Again why? Good Textures and good lighting it is.
That's exactly right bro great explanation.
Lol thats quite ignorant. Especially considering all the new upscale techniques and machine learning. Which routinely use lower res images and reconstructs to higher res. Returnal is supposedly 1080p and without someone telling usbwed never know. That said yea this game look bad, which is a shame because its actually kinda fun
It's not ignorant. Certain games in 1080p look muddy & dull. Rage 2 looks that way on the PS4 & Pro. Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 Pro & PS5 look muddy because the game is in 1080p up to 1188p. Certain textures in Returnal look muddy & dull especially some of the rocks & foliage. With higher resolutions the visuals are more defined,sharp & clear even if the graphics may look dated at least the visuals would be much clearer. Video games that are cartoony look fine in 1080p but some games that try to look realistic using model-like graphics need to be in higher resolutions. Though there are wizards like Naughty Dog,Insomniac & GG among some other developers have games that look fine in 1080p.
I assume the demo is just the PS4 version, and the PS5 is simply running that but locked to a higher framerate. My guess is Base PS4 1080p. PS4 Pro 1440p, and PS5 4K.
I was left underwhelmed after playing the demo. I just couldn't get into it. Combat felt pretty good, but everything else was so bland. Visuals, level design, characters, voice acting, enemies were all boring and dated to me.
I'm a pretty big FF fan, but dude... like why does this even exist? It looks terrible, wasn't fun ( for me; super repetitive ), and it's so dark. The areas are repetitive and I truly hate these generic looking characters. This one needs a LOT of work before I would even consider playing it.
I cant even look at the game...HORRIBLE!!! Why put so much effort in something that look 15 years old??
Loved the gameplay and rpg systems at play. Reeeaaallly hope they upgrade the visuals. I wish i could create my own character instead of that blah ass placeholder they have though.
I played this game yesterday. It is Nioh but with Final Fantasy which is a good idea on paper but I didn't like the characters and the setting is very dark. I would like the main idea of being based on Nioh but with the world of FF but they must revamp everything else.
To me the setting had to be dark . They are the Warriors of Light so they battle darkness I would assume . I like the risk they are taking , it may not be perfect but could turn into something great in the future . I’ll give it a try
Looks extremely generic. There are much better hack and slash games on the PlayStation console.
I don’t really care what a demo is running at for a game that isn’t out yet without a release date . Even if it’s 1080p In the end but it runs well that’s fine , not ideal but not necessarily a deal breaker . Returnal looked really really good at 1080p . I’m not sure this game will be as polished as Returnal but If it’s fun and doesn’t have too many bugs I’ll play it as I like FF games in general
1080p On PS5 again, cant this people work better, no one buys a next gen console to run games at 1080p when you already had hundreds of native 4k games on Xbox One X.
It’s almost like the game is unfinished and they just released this as a demo...
This looked so bad in the presentation. Needs a lot of polish for sure!
Very poor and strange why it's a choppy 60fps
Visuals look very dated I expect more for PS5.......
