The first PS3 screenshot of Crysis 2

Gamersmint writes : We have to say it looks pretty good, check it out here. Taken from Cryteks 3D papers, looks great for a console version with proper lighting. We will update on the AA soon.

It looks great, crytek rocks

LORD-PHOENIX4929d ago

it looks ok,nothing special,i was seriously expecting more,i know its ONE screenshot,but then look at k3 screenshots they look amazing,even better in motion.

even resistance 3 looks better right now and thats not known for its graphical prowess but its gameplay.

hopefully seeing this game in motion ill change my mind but this one screenshot looks just ok

MUHAHAHAHAAHAHA4929d ago

well said, the game doesn't even look that great

-Alpha4929d ago (Edited 4929d ago )

I have to agree with Phoenix. It's just one shot and it's OK. Looks great, but Crysis 1 on PC just seems to look better compared to Crysis 2 on consoles.

I just want to see the PC version because it's going to be clearly superior. I'm still unsure if the consoles brought down the PC version. Should have stayed exclusive to PC IMO. Crysis is known primarily for visuals like Killzone and I just feel that C2's visuals aren't as impressive from what I'm seeing. They just bore me.

http://maxygames.no.sapo.pt... This still amazes me but I haven't seen anything like this shot in the C2 shots. Maybe it's the boring NYC cityscape. The jungles in Crysis 1 were drop dead gorgeous and incredibly photorealistic. A building in C2 doesn't look as impressive as some of the foliage in Crysis 1.

However, the game on PC is still the best looking title and considering the open sandbox approach and the amazing draw distances in some of the shots I'm pretty sure it will look fantastic-- but if it's being ported to consoles then I doubt it will look anywhere near as good.

Lord_Doggington4929d ago

all the elements that make the cryengine so special involve movement, particularly of light, particles, environment, etc. one screeny isn't gonna show anything that the engine excels in.

Persistantthug4929d ago

I mean, I haven't seen anything especially bad, but almost everytime I've seen Killzone 3, my jaw drops and I'm very impressed.

Crysis 2, it just looks like everything else...like just another shooter.

That's been my impressions so far.

Winter47th4929d ago

They shoulda used Killzone3's engine.

-Alpha4929d ago (Edited 4929d ago )

@thug

Crysis 1 still looks stunning on PC. C2 will look better, but I think this will only be a matter on PC.

I just don't like the shots I see. This particular PS3 shot is just average. But the game is a very big open-approach title and if C2 looks even half as good as C1 on PC then it will already be a gorgeous looking game. Just look at the Youtube videos and you will see how amazing the physics/graphics are. But with shots like this I can't help but feel passive. Again, it's a console shot and I suspect the console versions will lack vastly to what can be done on the PC.

I just don't like how the focus seems to be on the console versions. The PC version is where it is at and that is where the focus should be

Death24944929d ago

I if Crysis2 on ps3 is using MLAA? It's clearly visible in Killzone3. People think Crysis looks better because of it's FPS, which is awesomely locked in at 60fps. I don't how many people own a 120hz TV, but if you crank up Judder (not max), Killzone2 will blow your minds.

mrcash4929d ago

resistance looks hideous just like the prequels.

frostypants4929d ago

Agreed! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been thinking that Crysis looks better than what we've seen so far of Crysis 2, but as you say it may just be due to the setting. I think urban environments are probably just easier to pull off, thus lessening the visual impact.

RememberThe3574929d ago

Someone always has to be cynical. I think it looks great. Frankly, I was expecting much worse.

nycredude4929d ago

Looks a bit like Bionic Commando! I hope it looks better in motion cause that was decidedly just... ok.

Darkfocus4929d ago

@pheonix
you've also got to take into account that this is an open world game where killzone follows a linear path.

Koolno4929d ago (Edited 4929d ago )

"However, the game on PC is still the best looking title "

Lol@the xfanboyz always talking about crysis, and "pc better than console", ignoring the fact that most of the best graphics this gen are on ps3..

ExtremeLOL@ultimate revenge, delusional much ?

Ju4929d ago

Looks good, well, almost. Mediocre with all those MP games, if you will. But quite away from the PS3 exclusives. Not surprised, TBH.

nnotdead4929d ago

this one pic looks blurry, and shows average to low texturing. not very impressed, but like Lord_Dogg said, "all the elements that make the cryengine so special involve movement...", so i'll need to wait to see the game in motion before i can really comment.

@KoolNo
again, the one screaming fanboy is writing the most fanboy worthy post.

DigitalAnalog4929d ago

"I if Crysis2 on ps3 is using MLAA?"

No, it isn't. Eurogamer confirmed they're using a defered AA style similar to that of Halo: Reach/SWTFUII.

-End of Line

Death24944929d ago

Well that kinda sucks. You're claiming to be maxing out the ps3 but you're not using MLAA. That weird because LBP2, Infamous2, Motorstorm: Apo, Killzone3, Socom4, and etc are all using MLAA. If they did, people with he 6000 series ATI cards would be able to utilize it on PC. So it looks like the consoles held back the PC version. When I say consoles, I mean only one, 360.

Dude_4929d ago (Edited 4929d ago )

Death2494, a game looks good for multiple reasons. like the clever visual arts and level design. MLAA is very well suited for PS3, since it's being performed on the cpu. it also has it's downsides, like the ugly bluriness. Nobody is 'holding anything back', while 360 lacks in raw cpu power compared to ps3, it has a better gpu. It's not that simple, see. it in this case it's to be expected with a multiplatform game, since PC/360 and Sony's console are very different.

HolyOrangeCows4929d ago

So much for hitting the PS3's ceiling.

I guess they put in a new floor for Killzone 3 :)

Hopefully the screen tearing isn't as bad as what we've seen on the 360 footage. But I doubt it.
I'm probably still getting it on PS3.

evrfighter4929d ago

why would we want MLAA over AA?

http://n4g.com/news/632093/...

it's already been confirmed that MLAA would only work well for lesser gaming pc's. that and it looks no different than 4xAA with blurry edges.

Kleptic4929d ago

@dude11

I am not sure what you mean by 'ugly bluriness' for MLAA on the PS3...as MLAA is calc based AA to nearly mimic MSAA, which is much more resource demanding...But the results have been unanimously described as the answer to the AA problem the PS3 used to have...

Its quincunx AA that uses full screen blur to smooth edges...which is where many people complain of the screen always being blurry...Killzone 2 used this, but actually did it better, all things considered...its usually horrible though in multiplatform games...

I'm just saying...the first game on PS3 to utilize MLAA from the very core of the engine was God of War III, and I believe Uncharted 2 used it also, but was a late engine switch that ND commented on struggling with...and there is NO 'ugly bluriness' whatsoever...its a great answer to the AA problem when the renderer is built around it...

Dude_4929d ago (Edited 4929d ago )

I mean it is a general natural downside of this post processing effect. Certainly superior though to the 'quincunx' that you mentioned.

GoW3 not being blurry means the graphical engine was well designed. Means their programmers work well together with their modelling team.

MLAA was used in the PS3 version of Saboteur, Uncharted2 and GoW3 as far as I remember. Yes though, their implementations likely varied. And it was performed on the central processor (although I do believe there were some recent implementaions using shaders for PC) , while MSAA is on the GPU. So what do you mean by MSAA being 'more resource demanding'?

Anarki4929d ago

The game does look great. Different game styles.

Killzone is very gritty and this is more colourful and vibrant. Each are great looking in their own environments.

ThanatosDMC4929d ago

Looks terrible. This is medium settings on Crysis 1 compared to my High settings. Anything above High will probably make my PC kill itself.
