Here you can see some new gameplay video of the Beta of Crysis 2 being played in Xbox 360
between this and killzone 3...i dont know
Killzone 3, at least for me its killzone 3.
graphics or gameplay?
BOTH!!! In terms of graphics and gameplay both KZ 3 and Crysis 2 are AWESOME!! ill buy both of them Day 1 :D
Sold to me also i am getting both, they are great games well worth the cash. Here have a bubble.
It looks like it is often running at 15 to 20 fps, with lots of screen tearing. I hope Crytek can do something about that before the game comes out.
KZ3! Yo CryTek where the fuck is the PS3 beta???
crysis 2 is is going to be multiplatform, and though it will be optimized for the 360, it won't do what kz2 did, build the engine off the strengths and weaknesses of the ps3. on that note, i believe crysis 2 will be more of a technical marvel than killzone 3.
Really? For starters Killzone's lighting engine buries anything Crysis 2 can muster. And as I said, that is just for starters. At this stage Crysis is still missing several blended animations. The two games release about 40 days apart. If you are missing those at this point they either are not being done or there is something wrong. BTW, run videos 2 and 4 at the same time and look at the menus. Run both in the same resolution? See what is going on? Someone is not being honest.
Developers announced that the PS3 is the Lead Platform for Crysis 2.
no, no they didnt. lol idiot.. the crytek engine was originally built for PC and using their own software, they're able to create the games for all 3 platforms simultaneously. It's called cryengine 3 multi-platform technology and there is no lead platform. "Live Create" is a feature that allows the devs to transfer an adjustment made on the pc, to the consoles. Crysis 2 on consoles will not set any bars graphically and as of right now the game looks terrible when put up beside games like killzone, uncharted etc. I've been playing the beta on my 360 for 2 days and it really isnt anything special.. it is fun, but looks like shit. The videos posted here make it look better than it is because it doesn't allow you to see the imperfections as its off screen and blurry... don't be fooled.
"no, no they didnt. lol idiot.. the crytek engine was originally built for PC and using their own software, they're able to create the games for all 3 platforms simultaneously." Yeah know that but jesus christ calm down its a video game. I`m sure i heard them say some special shit for the PS3 is all i am saying and i thought they said that.
Hey Denied, thanks for sharing your impressions. Can you give a few more details? For example, what exactly looks so bad? In the videos it looks like the framerate is around 15 or 20 fps most of the time and there seems to be a lot of screen tearing. What I can't see clearly in the videos are the textures. How are those? Is there a lot of pop-in like we have seen in some of the single player videos? Anyway, thanks for your answers in advance.
Hey Traveler.. so right off the bat, the texture pop-in was noticable and quite frequent... atleast at the start of the rounds as it's probably still loading the map at that time. the framerate isnt too much of an issue, but that's mainly because there is never a lot of different things going on at once, like someone said earlier there is a lack of "atmosphere" especially if you're coming from bc2 or medal of honor. Screen tearing.. not too sure I wasn't really looking out for that but will keep that in mind when I play again... I was focusing on testing mechanics and what not. The game itself is quite fun, they've taken elements from cod and halo and sort of integrated with some minor tweaks.. it really does feel like you're running around in spartan gear and you can jump high, go invisible etc. killcam and the round-ending kill are also in there... as for the graphics.. I said they look bad because there really isn't much to them.. it feels a bit.. i dunno.. plastic-y like MAG when it first came out. From the gun sounds to the animations it all just feels artificial. I have no doubts they will improve on this before release, but the way they talked about it setting the bar for all 3 platforms, of course I'm going to be a little picky.. lol in this case I don't even have to be, there just isn't much here. It's released around the same time as KZ3 and KZ3 is way ahead right now so if Crytek is thinking about improving the game they should probably do that pretty soon.. There is no character, it feels like its trying to be all the other games mixed into one, with a crysis "theme" to dress it up. Keep in mind I'm talking about the console version though, I have no doubts crysis 2 on PC will look exceptional just like the first on high settings. hope that helps =)
And they're choosing the PS3 as the lead platform on consoles you moron. Do a quick google search before opening your mouth idiot.
@longRod lol you think I just knew that stuff off hand? nah I googled it because I remember them saying a few months ago that there was no "lead platform" even though PC technically is... but their software generates all the content on all platforms simultaneously... "This gave us the chance to ask Cevat Yerli, founder of Crytek, technical questions about the Cryengine 3. From the interview we learned that although the Cryengine 3 is a multi-platform technology, there is no lead platform which is usually the case. Instead the Live Create feature of the engine allows the developers for example to transfer an adjustment they just made on the PC to the consoles. The Cryengien 3 automatically converts, compresses and optimizes the content and conveys the output to the platforms. One of the most important features of the Cryengine 3 is its cross-platform scaling capability that makes it possible to reach best results from each platform." read carefully my friend, easier to comprehend when read a bit slower so try that. If anyone can prove me wrong with facts then so be it, but this is what I got from google on a few different searches now.
Morgan works for Sony. Nuff' Said about his comment. As for lighting engine? Sure whatever you say Morgan. FP 10/12 HDR for Killzone 3 OR NAO32. Draw Distance? Ya...GREAT Carry on Morgan.
What the hell does Killzone 3 have to this??? And why are people comparing the graphics of two betas?? LMAO
It seems people on this site love to compare things, no matter how different they may be. It's only a natural progression for them to start comparing 2 games that aren't even finished.
the more desperate people are to share their opinions in these comparisons, the more obvious it is that they know they are wrong. damage control... or... spin
i agree all these fanboys are just messing this site up i had my doubts but it runs great on the 360 its looking better than MW2 but im going to rent it first
games on there own merit instead of comparing them every chance they get its pathetic. There both totally different games its like comparing gears of war with splintercell just because they are both 3rd person it doesnt work like that
Video #3 is the best I've seen yet. Very nice and realistic looking textures, lightning. It seems there is a good AA in place. Looks very good. BTW, people should stop bringing KZ to every other shooter article, and viceversa. It is highly offopic and calls for flamewar and trolling.
Agreed!Both look great although it seems like Crytek is slowly implanting more and more graphical features.Just compare this build to one from gamescom,this is closer to PC trailer than that older one.What needs to be fixed is texture pop ins and tearing,they need to implant also per object motion blur...360 version from Eurogamer had it,this does not.Probably older build...
I swear this game just got better looking like i been playing it for a few days now. But today it seems different a lot crisper.
Maybe your computer screen looks better then your TV screen
Played it this morning, pretty fun, good graphics, good map layout, decent team builds and good weapon feel. I will say there were times it seemed like my box (MW2 version) was chugged a bit (during an intense firefight) but other than that good game. Not what they were making it out to be during the tech demos though, that is for sure.
is this on xbox 360? If thats the case, then i am really shoocked to see that xbox would produce this kind graphics!
I hope they can keep this balanced with all the crazy armour tech
When I read the title I thought it was a video when the game crash at some point, maybe during a presentation
Wayyyyyyyyyy too many shooters, I know I'm part of the problem as I do continue to buy them, but geeez it's getting out of hand. I know I will be picking them both up one on pc.
video quality ismuch better here. The game looks amazing running on the 360 tons of color on screen theres no uno gray or dukey brown color.
WOO!!! beta!! i'll just have to hook my 360 again. on a side note I WANT SINGLE PLAYER DEMO NOW!!!!
Both have different artstyle. Crytek is trying to be more photo realistic IMO. I am definitely getting both if I have the money and the PS3. Too bad the KZ mod for the PC has been taken out :( I wanted to try that since I only have a PC. Although it has heavy screen tearing, poor AF and very near Level of Detail pop in/out, it still kinda looked a little better than I expected.
This looks terrible..
looks like shit. how you can compare that to kz3 is beyond my mind. crysis 1 looked far better, and it had far better physics.
lol, and people want to compare this to the graphics of KZ3 lmao....i hope they do something to fix this, but if not it will save me $60 bucks. This game looks like crap. lol pre alpha code or not, the kz3 pre alpha code that has been seen on this website looks awesome.
so you mean GG made entirely new engine for KZ3h? or KZ3 pre alpha is an update version of the finished KZ2 engine?
