CC: THQ Executive Producer Luis Gigliotti believes that their upcoming survival horror first-person shooter Metro 2033 sets a 'new quality bar for visual fidelity'.
Game looks great so far. Dunno if it can top Killzone 2 in graphics though.
True, its a 360 exclusive anyway (for console at least) so we can expect some pretty decent graphics. But topping Killzone 2's will be a tough job. It's still the best looking game around in my opinion.
its easy to "set" the bar, when the game is 90%of the time in a dark tunnel with some little smart lightwork. well thats what I saw so far.
Yea its in tune but it will be also outside.But why do Sony fanboys bash Halo Reach gfx considering it has 40 a.i and 20 vehicles on screen and all that on open battlefield?Hypocrites...GOW III looks great because it has non dynamic camera so you see what devs want you to see,but of course im gonna get many disagree from blinded fanboys...game looks great.
".But why do Sony fanboys bash Halo Reach gfx considering it has 40 a.i and 20 vehicles on screen and all that on open battlefield?" Dude what are you going on about.
i'm not exception good reviews for this game they'll bash it for not having MP and Co op hope it turn out being good
Well the guy above me said its easy to make it good in dark tunels...well tell me how many a.i on screen has UC2!That game is linear and that is why it looks good like that and bashing halo reach for gfx is stupid because the game has more a.i on screen then all your gfx kings from 2006 together.
Metro raises the bar and surpasses KZ2 easily. Next Alan Wake will raise it and then Brink,Rage and Crysis 2.
wah? I don't see Halo written anywhere on my comment, you need new pairs of glasses dude. And what's the A.I has to do with it? you need to relax a little. I was stating the obvious: Enclosed/dark environment + smart light work= easy graphics(Dead space for example), It doesn't take a genius to figure that out nowadays.
Sry mate but im not the one with goggles.UC2 and KZ2 while having amazing graphics ARE linear,with small ammount of a.i on screen so for them to achieve those graphics with huge budget is not credit of ps3s power but smart devs and linear levels.Something that sonys fanboys wont admit.
/sigh... really? I didn't even mentioned any of the game you just listed nor I had intention of bashing any unrelated games. I did not say it was bad looking, for your own good read my comment below tudors which was written before my second reply to you. I will say this again: I was just stating the obvious. Anyway I'm not wasting anymore words on you.
KZ2's A.I is still some of the best to date, you still have to consider everything else that is going on on screen like the amazing particle.... @ eddy- i agree, i will waste no more. any ways the metro 2033 screens i seen i though it could rival KZ2, it looked just like it.
Killzone 2 has tons of lighting going on at once. Tons of charachters on screen at once. Play a 32 player match online in killzone 2 and just tell me their is nothing going on. I wont believe you. Bots flying around, turrets shooting, gernades and rocket launchers going off, realistic smoke effects and bullet holes, all while maintaining the same graphical fidelity that is in the single player. I hate when people downplay killzone 2's graphics when they have no idea what they are talking about. killzone 2 is pure quality http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This game looks fantastic! It's going to be the BEST looking game the 360 has ever seen and it's coming out in year 5 of the system cause from what I've seen so far (if the 360 version DOES look exactly like the PC versions shown) there's NO game on the 360 that has shown that level of graphics, lighting and animation, altogether, to date. There is NOTHING on 2033 that the PS3 base hasn't seen or experienced for years now when it comes to graphical fidelity, lighting and animation. What the 360 will be experiencing with this game in year 5, the PS3 base has been experiencing it since years 1&2 of the PS3 life cycle and that's the obvious truth. What's even funnier is, that games shows obvious influences from KZ2 but the same people hating on KZ2 now LOVE the technical game elements in this game - STOOOOPID. If the 360 had a game like this in it's 2nd year then that would have shown a lot of promise but to beat chests about this in year 5 takes away from how great this title is looking to be on it's own merits instead of using it to play stupid N4G flame war games. The game looks brilliant, enjoy it for the great game it looks like it'll be and stop with your BS. Oh, if anyone has seen a vid of the game running on the 360 I'd like a link please. So far it's been the PC version I've seen a lot of and I'm hoping they aren't trying to pull a fast one on the fans by making all believe the PC version is exactly like the 360 version.
"There is NOTHING on 2033 that the PS3 base hasn't seen or experienced for years" This has got to be dumbest logic ever. 2033 destroys all your dreams of KZ2 being the best looking console fps. I'm not trying to go to deep into this but 2033 is on a level you will never understand. edit below: I don't have to prove anything! The footage of the game has been released and if the 360 version version even looks close it will kill kz2 in the visuals department. "Show me a video of the 360 version in action." So you admit this game does look better lol. you just proved it yourself. "You are just full of hot air. Game might look great on PC but this is year 5 people year freakin 5" Who cares how long it's taking. As long as they keep making progress I'm happy. "I dont why you guys have so much faith in the 360 hardware still." because developers are still trying to figure it out and we know that it has more potential than PS3. "The 360 has yet to prove me wrong, you guys try and prove me wrong about games that are not even out all the time." You've already been proven wrong! 2010 360 games so far surpass anything seen on PS3 shown yet. "why do you have so much faith in the console?" Maybe because we don't have any faith in PS3! Sony may have you fooled but not everyone. Keep trying troll and come back when you have some something worth replying to. People saying KZ2 looks better than metro 2033 were probably the same ones saying PS2 was more powerful than Xbox and had better online lol.
Show me a video of the 360 version in action. You are just full of hot air. Game might look great on PC but this is year 5 people year freakin 5! I dont why you guys have so much faith in the 360 hardware still. The 360 has yet to prove me wrong, you guys try and prove me wrong about games that are not even out all the time. why do you have so much faith in the console? I dont get it.
I'm not going to let people like you spoil my excitement for this game. You want to use it to play stupid flamewar games and, for this game, I won't participate in it. If it is not obvious to you that this game's developers took careful notes from KZ2 (and few other games) in lighting, game mechanics, presentation, graphical fidelity and EVEN some weight simulation then I'll let you stew in your vile fanatic juices. The game looks brilliant but it is not necessarily the graphics that make you want to experience this (like I said, weather you acknowledge it or not, this is not new to the PS3 base) but rather the immersion. The interaction to other NPCs, the world it's self just looks so brilliant. This is going to be a gamer's game and I hope fans of consoles on both sides use this to support and encourage the developers of this game and other developers to up their game up like this too. I'm a nobody but I'd ask all PS3 gamers not to engage in the obvious incoming of 360fanatic BS about "oh, iz teh Killzone 2 KILLA" but rather applaud the developers of this game and show them support by not doggin on their product just because you want to fight back at loser 360 fans looking to take away from the accomplishments of the PS3 exclusive library.
All of you fanboys above are annoying. Why don't we wait for footage today or later before we start pretending it is over for 360.
They're clearly talking about the PC version.
Considering that the same people hyping up Metro 2033 as awesome in the graphics department are also the same people who said that Gears 2 is equal to Uncharted 2 in visuals and technical aspects, I shall take their opinion with a pinch or two of salt.
-This whole attitude that "the 360 just can't equal ps3 exclusives" is so ridiculously stupid. There are just two games on the ps3 that you could argue look better than the best 360 games, but that is just two games! Quit acting like most ps3 exclusives are amazing, because they are not. Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 came out and they looked fantastic and they were the arguably the best looking games for awhile, but now newer games will be coming out that equal or surpass those games. That's just the way it goes. But when you get right down to it, does it even matter? I mean, when graphics get to a certain point does it even matter if one game looks 2% better than another one? Is it even possible to accurately determine which game looks better when all the best looking games all look so different and all have their own unique strengths? I think once you reach a certain point it is all subjective anyway. As for the guy that said Metro 2033 only looks good because everything takes place in tunnels, well obviously he doesn't know what he is talking about. I believe the developer said around a third of the game takes place on the surface. Check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watc... from about 3:15 onward they are in an outdoor environment and you can see how impressive the graphics are.-
When gow 3 releases it will be praised for its graphics and quality and you guys will be saying the same thing you are now. You guys are like a broken record. I have had a 360 since launch so call me a troll call me whatever but all of you guys that still think that ps3 isnt more capable than the 360 in 2010 is just in the worst denial. End Of! You guys are the ones that thought the ps2 was more powerful than the xbox, not me :) You guys are just so angry, I hear the pain in your typing its sad. And cwmr that video is terrible quality with no more than one enemy attacking at once. Lets wait till the final game comes out shall we.
Well, this game it is for PC too. So, Im sure it will have top graphics.
@lowcarb ''Metro raises the bar and surpasses KZ2 easily. Next Alan Wake will raise it and then Brink,Rage and Crysis 2.'' Then after Crysis 2 (from consoles), Killzone 3, Uncharted 3, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, The Last Guardian. Don't be a fanboy from Xbox, please. Wondering how many comments of you are in Open Zone and deleted from Moderators xD.
I think they are talking about the PC version. I remember reading an interview with the developers and they said that they were focusing on the PC version being the strong point and the 360 version doesn't look quite as good. I don't have a link sorry. You'd expect THQ not to specify anything though.
Ive been trying to find that interview i dont think its exists ...... sad
...mostly from some German websites, were 360 build.
360 gameplay footage http://www.youtube.com/watc...
"We preview the game a few weeks ago and voiced a number of concerns with it. The graphical issues and the unbalanced gameplay leave us with a sour taste, but one can hope that developer 4A has listened to criticism and made the game a little more sensible. If you're going to make a special edition, you better damn well make a game good enough to justify it." http://www.destructoid.com/...
Well, if the video you brought in is really 360 footage we will have a new graphical benchmark on consoles. Even it is in bad quality - really awesome.
@Major Tom I love how you trust Jim Sterling when he's talking about a 360 console exclusive, but you were singing(literally) a different tune here: http://www.n4g.com/Redirect...
Well, PC will have better graphics. @Dance If that is the gameplay from Xbox. Can't wait to see the gameplay from PC. It will outstanding, much better than Xbox.
Destructoid is usually more lenient with the Xbox 360, so when they say there's graphical issues, I believe them. These are all facts, I just lay them all out on the table. You've been facted, kid.
No, I don't believe I have. You can't just side with the guy when you feel it's convenient. If you feel he's not a good writer, then why trust his view on another game? To me, he's hard on everybody. He seems to dislike games that do not offer multiplayer. Metro 2033 - No Multiplayer Heavy Rain - No Multiplayer
As much as I'm looking forward to Metro 2033, I'll believe it when I see it.
I know how you feel. Too many games that have shown presentations that look incredible but once you get it in your hands the delivery of the game gets disappointing. However, I really don't see that here. This thing looks like an amazing experience. This is why I play VGs, this kind of immersion where they take you INTO the world and let you role play and feel like part of that world. From what I've seen, I will be totally floored if the delivery of the story and gameplay doesn't live up to what's been shown so far. Floored and very very saddened. This game HAS to deliver; it looks too awesome not to.
Sureeeeeeeeeeeeeee Crytek is saying the same thing about Crysis 2. But hey, they proved it with Crysis on the PC.
No offense but isn't KZ2 a dark game, couldn't the same thing be said about that?
I admit it was dark, but it wasn't set in dark tunnels. But I also don't recall calling Metro a bad looking game.I'm just stating he obvious. Heck if you have free time, I'm sure I wrote that Metro looks damn good when they showed some of the first gameplay footage. Its somewhere buried in my history, if not I probably wrote that on another site. I'm just glad that great visuals are popping up everywhere. I'm buying it once I replace this outdated pc of mine sometime this spring or summer.
Yes KZ2 is relatively dark but i don't think it's as dark as a horror shooter. Anyway i honestly don't care if looks better or worse than KZ2 or any other game as long as i get a great atmospheric horror shooter
Yes, you could
I know Kung-Fu! Show me!
Yeh I agree, I come in here and discuss graphics but the truth is if I had a PS3 and a 360 I would be happy with both because they are pumping out stuff right now that even a mid range PC would struggle, to get PS3 and 360 graphics on PC you still need a good 1gb ram with at least a 3 gig CPU and 500mb GPU. In my time spent on the PS3 my only real gripe is that some of the multiplats do paint it in a bad light, and I tend to think that once this gen is done the PS3 and the 360 will end up more or less equal, I guarantee you that if KZ2 impresses you or UC2 it will not atop some of the new 360 games impressing you also.
Yes that's part of my gaming philosophy. I don't want to be stuck with KZ2 or U2 visuals for the rest of this generation, althoguh they are two of the best looking games right know. So if Metro 2033 sets the new quality bar for visual fidelity i'm perfectly fine with it and i will got out and buy it (actually i already pre-ordered it for the 360). About the outcome of this generation... it's way to early to tell which console will outperform the other but if i have to guess i will say the PS3 will be on top. This is only based on the actual (exclusive) games and the statements of various devs. But again, i honestly don't care for 2 reasons: 1. i own both consoles 2. i'm a gfx wh*re and thats why i could careless wich platform is going to provide me my gfx fix as long as i get it ^^ Sorry for my bad english
I got an eye on it, I just hope it's ready and has no screen tearing and a steady framerate, otherwise I won't even look twice. It does show promise though. I hope it isn't a "timed exclusive" to only come out on the PS3 six months later as I prefer to collect multiplats on my PS3, but I will purchase it if it's technically sound, gets solid overall reviews, and is truly 360 exclusive.
Gamers this gen are THE most jaded [email protected]@holes I've ever seen in any gen. So if it has a bit of screen tearing or a dip in frame rate here and there you won't support THIS type of game development? ... but Modern Warfare 2 and Halo3/ODST will sell 15million uh? Gamers this gen will kill gaming for sure. Ok, I was a bit harsh. Sorry :(
@Blow Out Your Brains Is not self exclusive for Xbox 360. I don't need an Xbox to play Metro. @Chubear Yes, a lot of Fanboyism and Ignorance. A lot of Kiddies trying to proove what console is better with irrelevant things.
lol! that is too funny. it's on the 360 come on why make an obvious false statement.
why run to our posts to lie. Hmmm? go play one of your triple bbb titles, were to busy to listen to your jealousy.
Well, I don't think you have legs to be back talking much dude so reconsider cause history has clearly shown, if it's not an in-house MS developed game then there's a high probability that it is going to turn out to be a timed exclusive for the 360. Dont' know if it'll eventually come to the PS3 or not but you'd have to be stupid to beat your chest and say "NEVER ON THE PS3" when there's been a huge track record of such games going to the PS3 at a later date. I'd say you shut up and enjoy a game that finally looks to be a true current gen experience on the 360 and not the regular ol' last gen gameplay with sub HD graphical gloss that you're so used to on that system.
It does look great.
This game looks great but it isn't setting any new graphical bar. I can name several games that look better that are already out so how can this game be setting new graphical bar?
Looking at the screenshots they seem to have done a really good job on the lighting which is very important in a game based in the dark.
this destroys KZ2 in every way...
Game is looking really good. The lighting, textures, etc but I wonder about things like death animations, hit detection and some of the "little" things that make a game like KZ2 stand out. It's just not all about graphics.. I noticed when you are turning wheels or picking up things there are no arms or hands. So if they took a shortcut like that I wonder how many other places they cut.
It's a great implementation of deffered shading on the 360.
Not a fan of THQ games. They all look and play poor to me. Frontlines: Fuel of War and saints row series are exceptions. I might research this one a little though.
looks like MW, so it looks good but that bar was set in 2007 http://www.gamespot.com/xbo...
Metro: 2033 holds the best graphics for shooters on consoles to date. I've seen KZ 2, and still hold to my statement.
it might set some bars...on console....probably not. Consoles hardly ever even run in hd with high fidelity games.
