New impressive HD screenshots of Alan Wake have been emerged.
Is this meant to take on PS3 exclusives!!!!!!!!!! Why do the daylight graphics look smudged?
I've seen screens of better quality .
Seems like it is 720p judging from the image sizes. Could be upscaled, but I doupt it. Besides resolution has never been a problem for me.
lame photoshopped screens..
@disagrees all edges are blurred..
Alan Wake is blurry as heck. It either is in a lower NATIVE resolution (The community manager didn't say native. It could easily be upscaled) or it uses blur filters.
It's called post-processing. Cinematic effects added by pixel/vertex shaders, not photoshop.
This shot has one light source yet the shadows are in all different directions. http://www.videogameszone.d... By the way, the capture quality is pretty good. As you can see in this shot, although the graphics are low-res, the text ("Find Help") is very sharp and crisp. http://www.videogameszone.d... Game is confirmed 540P.
While I'm sure Alan Wake is a great looking title, you really can't judge anything but lighting in those dark screens. Ima gonna wait 'til release until passing judgement one way or another.
A couple more wks...the proof is in the taste of the pudding...
Impressive looking game but taking screen caps from an already compressed video doesn't make it justice
Give it up for videogameszone.de - The crappiest gaming site on the web.
I`ve said this many many many many times. The graphics look nice, and that`s the best I can say about them. To compare them to PS3`s top dogs is absolutely laughable though.
guy these graphics are better then ur carpzone 2
I LOL at your fail. HAHAHA
I am going to laugh if it looks like that on x360, lol, is this the best it can do??

thx for the heads up buddy. These looks really great unlike the ones on the website.
LOL, good ol' Labby, trying to pass off PR shots as in-game. And good ol' fairy believes it.
i saw the pics, then i saw labwarrior, then i LOL'ed, i still see low-res textures everywhere, looks so lacking when its not night time with fog covering everything.
The trees/grass/rock look great, characters/people look so-so, but the vehicles and indoors look hideous.
Best looking console game this gen. I have a feeling some of you will have to go into ultra troll mode when the reviews drop.
Thanks, they look real better then the pictures posted on the site. I don't have an xbox 360, but is going to be an exclusive forever for xbox 360? or is it going to at least jump to PC. I just have to wait and see. xbox exclusive doesn't stay very long exclusive..
while i dont agree with labwarriors behavior i will say the images he has are alot better then the ones i have seen from site to site, those pics really do look amazing
I agree. His first comment is the kind of stuff that belongs and is most welcome in the Gamer Zone. Too bad it went downhill from there.
They look better because they were made to look better. Please don't fall into the hype trap again.

Just wait till the game comes out honestly the game should have been all daylight it looks good the dark gameplay I can't tell lol too dark to make the graphics stand out but I guess the whole point of the game is using light as your weapon.
hope u guys dont use all your battery power in one area...
nice to see some shots in the light with an open environment
those daylight pics dont look impressive at all. to be honest it doesnt look any different from any other game thats already out viually . still looks like a great game tho.
^ I do agree...its just nice to see the game aint another darkish Doom environment type game
I so can't wait for this game, paid off my pre order too. Roll on MAY!!
all you guys are just chatting shiit hating on the game because u feel threatened why i dont know
impressive? yes. but only in the eyes of bots.
Well since you just asked "Impressive" and then replied with "Yes" That would make YOU a bot Moron.
Looks better than Fable 2 atleast.
Sigh, when will the fanboyism ever end. The Xbox fanboys keep on setting themselves up for failure. The Splinter Cell and Metro 2033 screen shots looked amazing before the game was released but the actual game graphics turned out to be not that good. How about we stop hyping the graphics and when an Xbox game does look as good as a PS3 exclusive then just be happy. This is just like the PS3 fanboys hyping up a game to sell like Halo.
I wouldn't say that is a fair comparison. Maybe PS3 fanboys hyping up every FPS to be the Halo killer is more appropriate. Sales don't affect anything in a personal sense whereas graphics may.
See why you idiots shouldnt argue? Dev confirmed 720P, that the videos were 540x950 or something; and not to be god damn fanboys that hate on everything. STFU, wait intill its released- because everyone saying <720 is wrong; again.
Im goin say the screens are fudged....i have seen better screens of alan wake...disagree fairies are out again. i never have like that website...
This game looks great to me. I will get a 360 and this game one day. All the games I have been interested in have been for PS3 or PC until now. With Splinter Cell: conviction and Alan Wake coming I now want a 360. Not getting SC:C for PC due to DRM. Just got to get a bit more money together. I have a PC and PS3, I will have to get a 360 also.
but still those deluding themselves this is anything but a newer version of Silent hill need to wake up. wonder if its looking better from scrappping the open world sandbox to a more restrictive type of gameplay. Of course 360 owners will not have a problem with this. Even if its one of the first things they use against God Of War 3 for looking so good. Ah its all down to which side of the fence you are I suppose.
No, how can you have a truely suspenseful openworld game? Give me a break, they did it so you see the story in the way to wanted to represent it, its the only good way for a horror game to work. Open world wouldnt make it as effective. GOW3, open would might of made the gameplay more effective, more options and it doesnt tarnish the game; would only add to the gameplay because everything about GOW3 is big and vast; the game should fully reflect this.GOW3 in a setup like zelda, where a dungeon leads to a boss (giant badass) Watch GOW4 might venture into a type of style like this; and it'll be even better than 3.
Impressive ? where ? you can't see at 5 meters, and nothing is better than a dumb resident evil or gears (i don't even talk about graphics stars, like uncharted)
This should have been an EXCLUSIVE with the bots. SHOW THEM the best graphics to date for the box. Should of set up an xbox account to see these graphics. Shadow and light filtering looks real nice. This article should have been more about the story than the graphics. And they used the word "Impressive"....
So far this games graphics are FAR from impressive. Show me something that doesnt look cheesy or something that isnt edited. I think the game will be Great but Graphicly its going to Lack.
I wonder why there's so much hate for this game? Considering how long this game has been in development there should be no reason to expect that it wouldn't be a high quality product.
The hate is less about the game and more about the unwarranted hype around the game. If no one heard that the game would be the best looking game ever made, no one would laugh at the fact that it isn't even close to the best looking games ever made. If no one heard that the game was open world, no one would laugh at the fact that it isn't even open town, let alone open world. If no one heard that the game would run at 720p, no one would laugh at the fact that not only will it not be real 720p but it will be standard definition. If people heard something along the lines of "Alan Wake will be a great game" there would be nothing to say other than "Cool. I'll check it out when it gets here".
because everyone keeps saying the graphics are top notch blah blah blah and so far the graphics suck. im not saying the game play wont be great but stop comparing the graphics to sony's top dogs because you know damn well the graphics are not going to beat GOW3 or even crysis 2. I like gameplay dont get me wrong but you absolutely need Graphics and so far with ALOT of games in this so called NEW GEN the games are looking more and more like garbage
...oh wait :(
Good graphics. I just hope there will be some kind of day/night cycle.
If it looks like that on screen, it's looking jaggy and blurry hahahahahaha.
Remedy said they doesn't retouch any image. It looks impresive.
