NowGamer looks forward to the ten games most likely to scorch your vision with blistering looks...
without looking at this, im thinkin killzone 2, uncharted, god of war 3, gt5, heavy rain...well you get the idea...a PS3 Exclusive graphics sex fest edit: and after i clicked the link, i stopped reading after halo reach. on topic: i have never seen such an epic fail of a list before, but comeon, lets put fanboyism aside, how does an imbecile not mention god of war 3 in any type of top graphics list? seriously? just pathetic
Ditto, stopped reading at "2. Halo Reach". Implies that the only game with graphics better than Halo Reach is GT5, which in turn implies that whoever wrote this has his head too far up his own ass to have seen enough game footage to make a proper list. I wouldn't even say Reach is the best looking 360 game of 2010. From the footage shown, Alan Wake looks better than Reach.
Seriously... what's with no God of War 3?
Umm where is GOW3? And why did they use a Rage screenshot for Halo:Reach? EPIC FAIL. Credibility has already been lost. To make matters worst they put Halo:Reach, Lost Planet, Mafia 2 and Just Cause 2 (seriously) over ps3 exclusives? The list fails on so many levels. They are trying to mask the fact that superior graphics are on the ps3. They list a bunch of multiplats to fill the void and have only 3 exclusive from from the ps3 but list them under Halo:Reach. It doesn't even deserve the second spot. Now if this was a sales article you could have it as number 1 for all i care lol.
we havn't really seen much of halo reach i would put alan wake or god of war 3 or SCC in there
Don't bother reading this article. They obviously didn't put a lot time or thought into it.
I don't know about this article, sure it sucks, Halo:Reach? Is not even out yet Looser!!! UC2 and KZ2 have the Most Impressive Graphics, don't talking about PC
because so many of you said it was a waste of time, but it says in the title that they're looking forward at what games will graphically impress us in 2010. So doesn't that mean they're making claims on games that aren't out? That's why, I think, they included games like Halo Reach on the list. And while game review scores are subjective, graphic comparisons are really subjective. I'm one of the few people that was amazed that Killzone 2 didn't receive more awards for best graphics....even over Uncharted 2. Anyone remember the stage where you enter a sewer tunnel and you're on a beach, it's nighttime and the lightening cracks every so often? Amazing to this day. The real question is if games can give us God of War 3, Mass Effect 2, Heavy Rain, GT5, etc, are any of us really wanting MS or Sony to release a new console anytime soon? I'm hoping for at least four more years.
Halo Reach? From what we seen so far e.g. no actual gameplay? EPIC FAIL.
2 faults. Heavy Rain should be up there with GT5.. seriously now.. that game looks too good. And I can't believe he put other crappy games and forgot about GoW3, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell... =/ I'm not sure where Halo 3 belongs yet since I've seen no gameplay HD videos yet or tried the demo.
nice point: “Gran Turismo is actually so pretty that it looks better than real-life.” because it is.
I'm not looking at the list but it better be 10 PS3 exclusives or the list is full of fail.
Not really Gears was impressive visually. I can't think of 10 PS3 games better I can think of a few more impressive but not a whole 10...
Gears 2 did look nice. But it's easy to name equally impressive and better games on the graphics side. But since this list IS 2010.. there isn't any point of argueing.. Unless they announce Gears 3, then BOOYA
I played Gears II again recently and although the game is great, I do think that many multiplatform games using the unreal engine or not are now better. I known the game is a couple of years old, but I still think BatmanAA takes the unreal engine to another level. In regards to PS3 games then I would say from what I have played and seen, these 7 games below all have better GRAPHICS than GeoW2 – but then again so does Fonza3 (yes it’s a driving game and therefore it should, but it’s still better looking). K2, U1, U2, MGS4, GOWIII, HR & GT5 I would also point out that you could say (it’s subjective) that these games could have better graphics than gears: Wipeout & Flower That’s 9, just short… I guess what I trying to say is that I don't think Gears can no longer be looked at as a graphics king. Theres way better on the 360 and ps3
Slightly random layout, Rage picture under the Halo Reach summary and Just Cause 2 under Rage.
Wow no god of war 3 on the list thats just crazy especially after those scans posted today. Rage is being published by bethesda not ea. I dont agree with alot of the list but hey its their opinion.
Already making judgements about graphics regarding games that haven't been released. If that's the case, why the hell is GOW III not even on the list let alone number one?
That since these guys all work for UK games magazines that they may have seen and/or played all of these games? No... thought not. Lol.
I think Brink and alan Wake deserve to be on the list as well. And maybe BC 2 as well. Remains to be seen.
Brink looks great, not completely sold on the cartoony looking character models, but still great. Alan Wake, I'd need to see a lot more, with the game being so dark it's difficult to gauge, it helps to cover up so much, but the lighting engine looks fantastic.
OMG I totally forgot about Lost PLanet2 and Mafia2 II.
The list fails horribly because of those two games including Halo Reach.
@ Shadow Clown Putting your lifes savings in multiplats again i see lol. Dude is already declaring defeat.
and you hate anything halo related because is more popular than any ps3 exclusive. @Dutch Boogie I guess you won't be playing FFXIII and the next batman game.
@Shadow.. Still reaching for KZ2 graphics? Awwww come on man, quit falling behind, cause UC2, Heavy Rain and GOW3 already have or will top KZ2... So much for the 'Gears 2 looks better than KZ2' argument that was going around when KZ2 came out lol... Even if Halo matches KZ2, it will be nearly 2 years and KZ3 will be announced which will put Reach to shame... Fighting a loosing battle mate.
Wheres heavy rain, and god of war 3. those games looked way better then most of this list. Only one 360 game out of ten 3 for sony though. This trend just keeps getting better for PS3 fans and worse for 360 fans. A clear indication to me that microsoft needs a new console, oh and blu-ray would be nice.
imo, among the 360 exclusives, fable 3 or Splinter Cell 5 are more likely to have great graphics than Halo reach - Halo has never been known for graphics. And no God of war = fail. Maybe they were a bit embarrassed to have a Sony exclusive 1-2-3-4: GT5, GoW3, Heavy Rain, Last Guardian
Nar they knew what they where doing when they made that list. They are just in denial. Only a retard would make a list such as that. And these are the morons playing and reviewing our games. Seriously some of the dumbest people in the world are in the gaming industry no joke.
You make a very good point thief. Fable 3 maybe, but definitely SC5 should be on that list while some of the others kicked off and yet again others like GoW3 NEED to be added...it does seem like the list would have been weighted by a veritable gamut of PS3 titles though! But it is what it is ~ if there are more impressive graphics on a certain system the list should be properly made. Not created with omissions that are detrimental to both sides.
Should be on the list when no one in the world has seen an in-game screenshot of it, let alone witnessed it running? That makes sense. :S
The Last Guardian Heavy Rain Gran Turismo 5 God of War 3 I would put a 360 game in here, but the year is 2010 not 2007.
"The original Crysis was the best looking game ever when it launched in 2007, although you needed a serious powerhouse of a PC to actually run it. It’s arguably been surpassed by Killzone 2 since then but Crysis 2, Crytek’s first console title, has the potential to raise the bar even higher." LOOL Crysis stills the best looking game ever. 2010 : Crysis 2 Halo Reach Alan Wake GT5 Heavy Rain Mass Effect 2
Soon as they said KZ2 passed Crysis for visuals....this list failed.
Besides visuales though the Crysis sucked, and you can't have a good game with out the other elements, like game play, story, Computer AI, and Depth. My guess Crysis 2 is an epic fail.
Halo Reach? Have we seen ANY screen from Ingame at all? How can they even feature it on this list? By guessing?
I agree that Reach shouldn't be on the list yet because we haven't really seen it yet, but the trailer from the VGA's was in game, just not gameplay.
YOU haven't seen it yet.
Seriously how do these people get jobs as journalists in the gaming industry?
GOWIII isn't on that list are they serious???
Halo is on that list, you gotta be fuc!ing kidding me. Where the Fu!k is god of war 3, Halo its worst game ever.
alan wake, halo reach, crysis 2, mass effect 2(pc) and gow3.
God Of War three is to be on that list, is this guy fuc!ing high or what.
I dunno how they can put Halo Reach on there when we've only seen a trailer. It's a solid list but a missing God Of War III is glaring. The year-old demo looks better than most retail releases.
According to Microsoft.
Fuc!in halo is on the list and not god of war 3, for christ sake its gonna be CGI in-game when it comes.
I know dude dont worry its a list made by a bot , we all know once again the best looking games this year will be ps3 games.
When PS3 is even dominating PC game quality's, then there is no stopping PS3.
REALLY? Are you THAT stupid? the list had like 3 PS3 exclusives The level of ignorance is beyond belief..
i don't care if there were 5 or 6 six ps3 exclusive on that list , BOTTOM line i expect credit to be given where it is due , so what if there were 3 ps3 exclusives im supposed to shame my tale shut up and like it GOWIII deserves to be there and its like the 3rd or even 2nd game graphically that is
Halo Reach before Heavy Rain and The Last Guardian?? WTF. Might as well take off GT5 and put a Mario game as #1
At least there are no U3 powered games... But this is still a total fail list, Halo: Reach? WTF is that crap? And no mention of GoW 3 or Metro 2033. The only games that deserve to be on this list are Crysis 2, GT5, Heavy Rain, and Rage, and even Crysis 2 is Crysis on medium settings.
Top 10 GRAPHICS with 3 screenshots...
1. GT5 2. Heavy Rain 3. GOW3 4. Last Guardian 5. Crysis 2 6. Rage 7. Brink 8. Halo Reach 9.Splinter Cell Conviction 10. Alan Wake Probabley missed a few, but i feel this is a whole lot better than the list in the article =D Not sure about Crysis 2 though.
I agree with your list almost exactly. I would move Alan Wake to 9 and Splinter Cell Conviction to 10
it looks stunning in the replays but real-time it falls flat. I'd throw in metro 2033 or bf:BC2, the single player is stunning. Gow should also be pushed back, and alan wake or halo reach moved up.
@ Xi replays are the same as game :] just added DOF and better AA (which is still good in in-game) .... everything else is the same.
I've played the game, the replays are like forza 3, a large step up from in game and real time graphics. Higher polygon models, better aa, higher resolution, and post processing effects like better depth of field, motion blur and lighting.
GOW III is not even on their list. People continue to sleep on GOW III graphics. People are going to be shocked.
Hell yeah deffanlty GT 5
is the list a joke? no gow3 and from what he have seen from halo reach it hasnt proved it self yet it was an old build and it look about as good as halo3.
super mario galaxy 2 in my opinion is fail EDIT: Also lack of GOW3. i mean come on does he not follow games at all?
Does he really think that Crysis is comparable to Killzone 2? Or any game for that matter? The closest a console game has come is Uncharted 2, and even that doesn't really compare. Especially with the mods for Crysis that make the game look drastically better than the original settings. Although there are multiple ways you can look at it. With pure engine capability, Cryengine 2 is far better looking than any other engine out there. However when it comes down to execution it is a tougher call. And by execution I mean all the assets you add, like textures and models. A game can have a fantastic engine and crappytextures. Uncharted 2 looks amazing because it has great execution, but Crysis looks better because of its superior engine and visual effects, and pretty good execution. With mods though, its not even comparable. But then we're comparing a high end PC to a PS3 here.
it;s not best technological achievment which C2 will be. It's best looking game. And when people sometimes don't see a diffrence beetween gt5 shot and real life photo you can say it's better looking than any game to date even if it's not technical achievment as C2....
There should not be a comparison with Crysis to ANY console game this generation. Its not even close.
we have seen it we know it will be beautiful, but the rest? unless he has an HD crystal ball I dont see how he can know. title should have read "Games That I Predict Will Have The Impressive Graphics in 2010"
lost planet 2 and mafia 2 with no mention of alan wake or gow3? i dunno about this one.
What a stupid list. How can you possibly do a list of the best graphics of 2010 when none of the games on the list are done yet? I'm a huge Halo fan, but putting Reach on this list is ridiculous when we haven't seen anything but one trailer. Plus, they left off Splinter Cell Conviction, Alan Wake, Mass Effect 2, and God of War 3. Epic fail.
I'm guessing this is just one dude going around saying what game he's gonna like or likes. No God of War III, Last Guardian? Less pretty than Halo? Granted Halo: Reach is Prettier than last time, but really. Oh not to mention Heavy Rain, hello does interactive movie mean anything to you?
