Msxbox-world looks at the 3D implementation in the just released Crysis 2 demo which pales in comparison to its peers presenting an inferior use of the technology.
Wow, after all that hype about Crysis 2's groundbreaking 3D technology and all the time and money they put into developing it for the 12 people out there who can actually use the feature, they don't even like it!
Unlike, for example, GT5 or movies like Avatar, Crysis 2 doesn't render a different image for each eye. It renders one image then warps that image left or right using a clever depth based scaling algorithm. This is why there's no significant frame-rate or resolution hit with the Crysis 2 "3D."
But the one GT5 uses will give you bigger headaches than the technique Cytek have used in Crysis 2.
Crysis 2 3D may fail on console where people have no choice and are at the mercy of the developer. On PC things are different we have softwares like IZ3D, Tri Def which can be configured to change things very quickly. Not to mention the modding community.
I disagree, I get to try 3D on GT5 and the experience is very much like that on the silver screen. -End statement
Can't wait for 3d to die!
3D effect is 3D effect. If you use a non compromise methode good for them.
where's pandamobile? How would you like your crow prepared sir? haha! Say it! SAY IT!!!! PS3, it's the better console!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... "If we compare the 3D effects of Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 then Killzone 3 wins hands down!"
GameTrailers already mentioned this at E3 last year. Everyone left the Crysis 2 3D E3 demo scratching their heads, wondering what was supposed to be in 3D. It's weak at best.
yep, pretty fail here's hoping 3D in final copy is better than the demo!
Crytek has said the 3D in the demo is not as good as the final game.
For the disagrees here's the quote from Crytek's Jens Schaefer, "The final game has a lot more depth and a lot of progress happened. The 360 demo did not integrate the updates and thus 360 demo is not representative regarding S3D."
do you really believe them?
The press was impressed last week when they got to play test crysis 2 in 3D atleast the national 3D gamepress was. They said the 3D was more into the screen instead of out of the screen 3D.
It is not even REAL 3D.
No form of artificial 3D is 'real' It's a gimmick and it'll always be a gimmick.
Who the hell are you to judge what's 'real'? Your eyes are a pathetic limitation of biology, not a testament of reality. You can't even see infrared! What the hell do you know? Puny human.
I am downloading the PC demo right now. Hopefully the 3D implementation is better than on the 360.
I am sure the modding community will find ways to tweak it.
I'm sure being on the PC it will be patched rather quickly if it is not up to par.
i just played it in 3D on PC, and i thought it was great, although you cant play in Dx11 till the real game comes out.
It isn't DX11? I thought that something didn't seem right. I played it at 1920*1080/Hardcore settings. I kept thinking that this game looks good, but not quite as good as I thought it should look. Maybe no DX11 is why I thought that?
Same with ShogunTW2 (no Dx11), damn. @dragonelite"pc has stereoscopic 3D from nvidia if im not mistaken.". It's pretty gay if the PS3/PC are held back by the 360, but else is new.
pc has stereoscopic 3D from nvidia if im not mistaken.
to tell u the truth i tried to like this game...its visually gr8 but idk i just cant get into it...
Me too. I tried liking it but this game seems to be on the bottom of my list for must play FPS games this year. There's R3, KZ3, Darkness 2, DNF, and Serious Sam 3 for me.
i know it kinda sucks i've been following on this game for like a year....o well onto BF3, UC3, brink, rage,and gears 3
Its like they have tried to turn Crysis into COD and just ended up with a turd
I've just played a couple matches. Overall very nice. Looks beautiful..best looking game I've seen yet. Couple things bother me like there is no toggle to zoom...e.g you have to hold right mouse down to zoom and press left to fire at the same time. I run the game at 1280x720 and it plays perfectly smooth but in full screen things seem a bit blurry but window mode looks great.
DOES ANYBODY EVEN CARE ABOUT PLAYING CRYSIS2 IN 3D?I MEAN SERIOUSLY!IN ALL REALITY IM NOT EVEN SOLD ON THE NORMAL VERSION
I wasn't sure about the game either but after playing for a bit it's pretty fun and PC has dedicated servers and it looks absolutely awesome!
graphics settings consist of Gamer, Hardcore & something else (forgotten it!!!!) thats it. Crysis 1 had loads of graphics options, this is clearly just a console port :( 6 vs 6 wtf ? crysis wars was 32 players. Screw you Crytek and all your bullshit about not gimping the pc version.
What Killzone 3 pot do you smoke?
to anyone that can help i have a 3d TV and an HDMI cable, how do i turn the 3d on my xbox 360? thanks
1. Disconnect all cables from the 360 to TV 2. Put 360 in garbage disposal (incineration or hammer beating also works) 3. Buy PS3 or fairly powerful Nvidia GPU-based PC 4. Enjoy 3D as it's meant to be enjoyed
your point 360? is based of a newer ATI GPU PS3 is based of a very old card Dual Geforce 7 type cards and believe me the Nvidia GPU in the PS3 sucks
Step 1. Disconnect the HDMI cable from the back of the 360 Step 2. Reconnect it to the back of the PS3 Step 3.
First off why does he have to buy a Nvidia based GPU PC? AMD/Ati GPu are just as good if not better and cheaper and they give you a choice of what 3D software you want to use. Second, sure the PS3 has tons of exclusives but maybe this person is huge Halo, Gears, COD fan and enjoys those online communities. third, Enjoying 3D as it's meant to be enjoyed means going to an Imax theater. Fourth, to answer the question you should be able to turn 3D on in the options menu of the game and only if the game supports 3D and some TV require you to enable the 3D feature in the options menu.
yea but you have to admit that 360 only has a couple 3d games(most aren't actual 3d anyway), which is very weak compared to the amount of games in 3d on ps3, so if you want games in 3d you WOULD have to get a ps3 or an expensive pc...so yea
You have to go into the settings and enable the 3d. its the same layout as the last demo release.
cheers mate bubble up and all that lol yeah i got to 'put 360 in garbage then skiped to your comment. what a twat haha ill give it a whirl
The article mentions the same problem. Change your Xbox 360 display settings to 1080i or 1080p output.
I stopped reading after xbox 360..
thankyou, i can now go to sleep peacefully.
"Crysis 2 demo 3D fails to impress" Well I'll tell you how it looks in 3D when it test drive it with the industry leaders Nvidia 3D Vision.
Oh man. This one is gonna spark some 1000' smoulder in the near future, when the PS3 demo hits.
Played the multiplayer beta on xbox for 2nd time and still not impressed at all. Graphics are nothing spectacular. Apart from realistic lightning engine, it looks like there's no AA, constant textures and shadows pop-in, sub HD, and still only 30 fps. CoD is nothing spectacular graphically too, but it has 60FPS which is much more easy on eyes. But most importantly, the gameplay is nothing new, imho. It's just plain boring, same old shit once again. Once again they just copy Call of Duty's perks, attachements, killstreaks etc. I want something new, I want to be surprised like I was when CoD4 came out three years ago. Here's hope that single player will be good. Overall, it looks like it's gonna be the 2nd big dissapointment of the year, after Killzone 3 which really is Killzone 2 minus some features.
