Some brand new screenshots of Cryteks Crysis 2 shows amazing graphics.
I dont care what people say, Crysis 2 has amazing graphics. Cry Engine 3 is really something.
I am really looking forward to this game. On that note, I don't know how the CONSOLE version of Crysis will compare to Killzone 3 visually but I can't wait to find out. I wan't to see a comparison after both games are in completed form. It will be a close match there is no doubting it but I think KZ will have the upper hand (on consoles) because the custom engine built to maximize potential on the PS3 alone and not catering to the other platforms. But for now no one can tell since they are both incomplete and what really throws a wrench into this comparison is the fact that you will have high end PC Crysis graphics thrown into the competition just because. At least Killzone on the PS3 can be compared to PC games I guess.
Quagmire .. who ever said Crysis 2 didn't look good :P..it looks amazing! some good shooters Finely on there way! enough of this Call of duty BS Bring on The Crysis 2 ect. 8-bit they both looks so good even if one looked slightly better then the other it doesn't really matter cause it wont be that much of a difference I will be getting Killzone 3 first and Crysis 2 shortly after..not sure if i'm going to get Crysis 2 for PC or my PS3 yet but both are going to be crazy games,and im sure both games are going to score 9/10s or 10/10s all over the place! im holding off on shooters this year for those 2 games :P
Nodding my head with approval
Glad there are a number of engines out there taking full advantage of hardware, instead of devs being lazy and just using the Unreal Engine, you can always tell which games use the unreal engine and most of those games are crap! There I said it lol. (Talking about the Multi-plat ports, not Gears etc)
Yeah, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Dead Space, Mirrors Edge, Borderlands and Batman: Arkham Asylum are all crap! /s If used correctly, games using the UE3 can not only look diverse and graphically impressive, but they're normally very easy to run.
Dead Space doesn't use the Unreal Engine.
Unreal Engine is the best engine on the market to educate people and produce the widest range of games.
lol I'm talking all of the Multi-plat ports devs do, like what we could have got from Crysis 2 being ported to consoles. Experienced Devs building an actual game ground-up for consoles is a different story.
version looked this good.
whether or not they lied, they did say that these are from the PS3 and 360
"Nah uh!!, KZ3 is better!" I just wanted to be the first.... P.S They really need to ban this god damn dutch website B.S @raztad The resolution of the pics...every screenshot so far has been in 720p...
Well as far as consoles go, its going to be tough to top KZ3, but if anything can, its Crysis. Still I think its more of a art direction thing. I just played KZ2 story again and I am still blown away by the graphics.
Art style is always more important that technical $#!+ in my opinion. But crysis 2 looks pretty amazing as well...no offense but KZ3 doesn't stray far from grey or sepia tones...
The color tones of Killzone are part of their art style but I am still waiting to see more levels. They mentioned an "Alien Jungle" and "Space Battles" so maybe they will have some color.
Couldn't agree more. Art design is what sells the ambiance of a game. Demon's Souls is a perfect example. Obviously, it was not top of the line in crisp graphics but the overall feel of each level sucked me in and proceeded to steal, oh, about 150 hours of my life.
I was not real immpressed with Killzone 2. maybe its the subpar game play. it looks good graphicaly but its just not all that fun.
this is the console version.
how do you know? EDIt: [email protected] people disagreeing on a question.
This game is God-like.. I hate that we have to wait until 2011 to play it.. Torture, I tells ya :(
I bought my video card for this game when the release date was still this year...an updated model will be released and it will cost less than mine did before crysis 2 launches now.... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @mrcash GTX480 Definitely get the 480, i overclocked to 850/1700/1000 from 700/1400/925 basically on stock volts with stock cooling. It's a 100% improvement from my O.C 280. A 5870 is in many cases only a 50% improvement, especially in min frames.
what card did you buy? Great card, i'm debating on wether to get that or a hd 5870.
I know the feeling. I bought an ATI 5850 1GB in May and had quite a few problems with it when I first got it, and although it runs very well at the moment, with Nvidia releasing the 460 recently which is quite a bit cheaper and only marginally slower, I'm a bit annoyed as I generally prefer Nvidia cards, and maybe I should have waited a couple more months. But I can deal with that for now. But if Nvidia release an updated 470 model with the benefits of the revised 460 and a price point similar to what I paid for my 5850, then I'll kick myself in the head.
This is actually a 460 review, but it is a recent review and has 480 benches vs the 5870 http://www.techpowerup.com/... Besides the overall performance and massive min frame advantage the 480 has it gives AA in many games not supported on ATI cards. + physx is awesome and DX11 performance ( especially tessellation ) is much better on the 480.
Yeah physx is definitely a huge selling point for me. When is the updated version releasing?
Is the 460 model better than the old 285? I'm probably gonna get one at the end of the year (EVGA w/step-up ofcourse), but haven't really been following the new fermi cards recently. Last I heard was when the 480/470 were first released that they weren't really worth the price despite their performance.
you do realise the 460 cant play crysis maxed. the 5850 can
No point buying a card for this game just yet. AMD radeon 6800 will be here soon. The 6870 from what i have seen and heard of it will blow a GTX480 into the weeds easily and not cost nearly as much. A very bad time to purchase a new card, a month or so until those release. Its not been a good year to buy high end graphics because the GTX4 series underdelivered and overpriced coupled with crysis 2 being delayed. This is why the 5870 is still worth roughly what it cost when it was launched a year ago. In fact by the time this hits, we should be very close to the first 28nm cards. GTX480 level performance by then will probably be about 150 pounds. Definitely want to wait if you are buying graphics for this, GTX4 generation will be dead and buried by the time it appears
well im not sure if the 6800 cards will be out this year. how ever i do think the 6700 cards will be. so whoevers is planning on buying a gtx 460, you better just wait and see what these new mainstream cards have to offer.
@The Creep Really? Because I remember reading some reviews for the 460 and the performance although not quite on par with the 5850, wasn't far off. I can run Crysis on very high at the moment and the FPS rarely ever drops below 30, and normally hovering around 40 or above, but that's without any AA as the performance impact is still pretty large. I would have thought a 460 would be able to achieve the same thing, albeit a few FPS less in some areas, that is unless by maxed out with 4xAA or more, in which case the 5850 still isn't really playable because the frame rate drops below 30 on numerous occasions.
@6.1.7 I would have to disagree with your statement that the GTX 470 is overpriced. Maybe slightly at launch but the prices have dropped down to as low as $225 after rebate when on sale. At that price its a slamming deal. Now I wouldn't recommend the card if someone lives in a really hot climate but otherwise I'd say its the best bang for the buck card out right now. I got 2 in SLI for $420 after rebate and selling the games it came with. Of course I can't really find any games to stress it besides Metro 2033 (witch still averages about 45-50 fps maxed out at 19*10). I was hoping it would be Crysis 2 until that got delayed.
You might want to wait if your not in a hurry to buy a new GPU because AMD releases the 6xxx series this coming early year. For the same type of money or slightly less than the 480GTX, you can buy a 5970HD which is faster all around and can run games on 3+ monitors without having to buy another GPU. The 5870 trades off bench marks with the more expensive 480GTX. The 480GTX is overall faster but not by much and its alot more expensive. The price comparison is more on par with the 5970HD vs. 480GTX...And the 5970HD is faster in almost every single case. Something to think about
http://www.techpowerup.com/... the 5850 even out performs the gtx 470 here. and rips the gtx 460 to shreds. i was going to upgrade my 3850 to the 5850 but now im waiting to see what the 6850 has to offer before i make my decision :)
#6.1.11 Dunno where you live so a GTX 480 may cost more then a 5970 there. But in the US a GTX 480 can be had for $375 after rebate with up to 2 free games. A 5970 Costs about $550 after rebate. #6.1.12 You link to the benchmarks of 1 game(Crysis) to prove your point? The 5850 is generally faster but it also costs more. And I believe unless you can somehow find a Reference 5850 (next to impossible these days) most of them can not be overvolted except for certain Asus, MSI and Gigabyte models. While the GTX 460 can overclock like mad with extra volts.
Hard to believe these are from the console versions. If true then WOW
If this is the console version one can imagine the PC version! And if Crysis 2 uses the same level of destruction as in Crysis Warhead and Crysis, then this game will be the graphic king on all systems.
I hope it's console!! then PC will be mind blowing!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Next will be the rpg graphics king!! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The devs say its the 360 version as the ps3 version has not been demoed yet.
