Crysis 2 on consoles can't touch Killzone 2 let alone 3.

Istanbull2813d ago

Killzone 3 looks so much better than Killzone 2, Killzone 2 looks so much better than Crysis 2.

Damn there are a lot of butthurt people on N4G. loI love it!

Comparing a PC title to a console game is freaking hilarious. How do these butthurt gamers spell desperation? C R Y S I S

And Killzone 2 still can't be matched by any title on Xbox so what the hell are you laughing at exactly? lmao!

NiKK_4192813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

isn't the 3rd picture really backwards? the top is 2 and the bottom is 3, at least that's what they showed it as on that site with the 1 vs 2 vs 3 comparison

btw i love the way 3 looks, but it just doesn't feel as dark and gritty as 1 and 2, idk i guess i'll have to play the singleplayer before i can't say

read few reviews you fool, it's a new visual benchmark.

tucky2813d ago

far from a benchmark: it looks exactly like the 2.

MarcusFenixITA2813d ago

BS - The textures are much better and the colors are finer and brighter. And even if it would like part it would still be one of the best looking games around.

hornyhaggis you sir, are a Fool.

SoapShoes2813d ago

Bunch of butt hurt fanboys trying to make Killzone 3 look bad to sooth their pain.

hoops2813d ago

KZ3 looks better than Crysis 2 on consoles. Plain and simple.

FinalSpartan2813d ago

stunning graphics.

But as it turns out the game is suffering from average reviews.

85% metacritic oh dear.
88% metacritic Black Ops ( Game hated by PS fanboys apprantly )

Grimmjow2813d ago

Average=70%-80%. Are you a high school dropout? :(

SpitFireAce852813d ago

Just shows how bias media can be a sub HD
game..laggy,random disconnects,graphics
that COD4 trumps a 4 year old game...

Like IGNs review of COD:BlackOps

And Killzone 3

Watch both videos to the end 2 negatives for
BlackOps VS Killzone3 1 negative yet they get
the same score...+ no mentioning of Co-Op
which everyone had a problem with KZ2..

@HornyHaggis care to show us all some ps3 footage of crysis 2 to compare? oh yeah you can't.

Raendom2813d ago

Another German article, another article featuring the word "stunning" in it's title.

tucky2813d ago

Looking the same ... if not labelled, people could not say which one is the 2 and the 3

hoops2813d ago

The differences are not that big at all. And it would not be because its the same engine as KZ2 just optimized more.
KZ3 has a far better color palate this time around and some more lighting but otherwise its almost the same as KZ2.
This will be the same thing for Gears 3. It looks the same as Gears 2 with a bit more lighting and color. Why? Same engine as Gears 2.

DoomeDx2813d ago

3x more polygons
High resolution textures
More objects on screen
Huge areas.

hoops2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

It looks almost the same simply because it uses the same engine as the last game but opitimzed. This also applies to Gears 3, ME2 and even Halo Reach.
If a game uses the same game engine for the most part in its sequel, there wont be a huge difference other than a few tweaks and lighting differences and textures. The one exception I can think of is Uncharted 2 where the differences from the first Uncharted to the second was big.

"No, it does look better to me. Is it a big jump? No, but it is a nice sized improvement. Less jaggies, better textures, etc."

That's exactly what I am saying. It looks better but its not a big jump as some people on this site wish it was. It looks almost the same with more polish/optimization.
Saying that KZ2/3 is still one of the best looking games around.

SoapShoes2813d ago

No, it does look better to me. Is it a big jump? No, but it is a nice sized improvement. Less jaggies, better textures, etc.

yewles12813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

You forgot to add:

Real Dynamic Lighting
Object Motion Blur


BlackKnight2813d ago


There is no SSAO, at least not in the beta I just played all last night. It's baked in.

Also odd, there was a side screen blur in killzone 2 to make it look like it was doing DOF, but now its completely gone. And also, unless it is because it was beta, textures on enemies and weapons were great, but some walls and cabinets and railings and floors (it was 50/50) had the lowest resolution textures I have ever seen.

Killzone 2 already had Object motionblur, SSAO, and dynamic lights

yewles12813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

Sorry, but the first PS3 title with SSAO was UC2, the original 4D rendering engine in Killzone 2 couldn't handle proper lighting or random shadows (their first attempt), and no how fast you moved, nothing blurred (even Guerrilla devs themselves talked about adding the effect in this one). This is a MUCH bigger jump than most people think it is.

Edit: Before anyone complains, 4D rendering = Defferred rendering.

BlackKnight2813d ago


Almost all games have dynamic lights. I think you are talking about deferred lighting, where you can have ALOT more dynamic lights.

Also, KZ2 had no SSAO and from the beta I just played of KZ3, no SSAO still, just nicely pre-baked AO.
