Gears 3 vs Uncharted 3 beta graphics comparison: Which game looks better?

Both are exclusives, both have been played in a beta form, both are third person action games and both are amazing looking games. Why not to compare them, at least visually?

Im not into Uncharted but ive been enjoyin the beta

The image quality in Uncharted 3 is simply amazing. Grears of War 3 looks great as well but the lack of AA is pretty obvious and sometimes distracting.

Result from the article:
- Gears 3 vs Uncharted 3 Ground textures: Gears 3.
- Gears 3 vs Uncharted 3 texture work in general: Gears 3 has better textures work.
- Gears 3 vs Uncharted 3 lighting: Both games have great lighting effects.
- Gears 3 vs Uncharted 3 motion blur: Gears 3.

Conclusion: This article is just pure flamebait. Both games have amazing graphic in their own ways.

Ones on a DVD the other is on a Blu Ray.

How about some video instead...


IMO...Gears just has a completely different look. The steam-punk inspired graphics just pop right off the screen. The smoke effects and lighting are the major upgrades over previous titles.

I think Uncharted loses a lot when going from the heavily scripted, cut scene heavy single player to the multi-player. The single player seem to have a higher level of fidelity...at least from what little I've seen from the single player.

Gears Of war 3 is just a different animal with crazy over the top animations, brutal take downs and of course fantastic weapons.


As for all the AA talk...lol...Gears of war always has AA...it obviously not needed with the advancements that Epic has made to the Gears 3 Unreal 3 game engine. Maybe they are using some custom techniques to achieve those great effects.

...Gears 1 had AA...torque bow FTW!!!


Here's some ( 2008 ) Gears 2 footage with AA...the fire and smoke look great but Gears 3 still looks better...


In the end, Epic has used what they believe to work best...I concur...lol

btw...hit the HD for best results.

@rjdofu gears 3 looks good and everything but if you enlarge the pictures everything looks slightly blurry uncharted 3 wins on all counts hands down..... especially the lighting :/

gaffyh4726d ago

They both look good, but imo, they aren't really comparable.

gears 2 didn,t beat uncharted 2 in graphics .... how can gears 3 do it? uncharted 3 destroys gears graphically

rjdofu4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

@extermin8or: where in my comment stated which game wins which? Don't quote me on that.

It's hard to find a true answer to any question like this since it's a matter of preference & perspective. Gears and UC have completely different styles of graphic, and they're both weldone IMO.

Does Gears 3 have split-screen or 3D?

Active Reload4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

Gears has had split-screen since the first one. Are you trying to compare features? Lol. 3D? Raise your hand if you have a 3Dtv. I think UC3's graphics have been degraded to pull off the 3D mode...


jony_dols4726d ago

Yay!!!! Another pointless flaimbait article comparing two beta (a.k.a incomplete) versions of 2 completely different games (with only vaguely similar gameplay elements) that are being released on separate platforms.

Makes sense to compare them then, doesn't it?


ps3destroyer4726d ago

Conclusion every article that proves an Xbox 360 exclusive has better graphics from ps3 one it is considered flamebait.If the article featured Uncharted as the clear winner the flamebait tag would be missing wouldn't it?

DualConsoleOwner4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

There was a poll at LoT with thousands of votes.

Favoring heavily that Uncharted 3 beta looks better.

Have you even compared Uncharted 2 to Gears 3?? cause UC2 looks better easily.

Uncharted 2

Gears of War 3

No game here.

BTW, VGarabia is known for this sort of 360 bias shit. I remember they were ripping on KZ3 for no reason when it came out.

jony_dols4726d ago


If you had actually played an Uncharted game before, then you would appreciate the fact that Gears & Uncharted are totally different gameplay experiences.

It's like comparing Mirror's Edge to Metro 2033.
The two of them are great games in their own right, both games are played in the 1st Person perspective and allow the player to use guns.

That's where the similarities end. The two have completely different art styles, graphics, player movement & stories. Just like UC & Gears.

HeavenlySnipes4726d ago







Just like how Gears 3 looks better than the freaking beta. I don't understand how people jump to conclusions over an unoptimized beta.

Kushan4726d ago

These games don't need to be compared, they're very different games. Sure, they're both 3rd person cover shooters, but play entirely differently. Gears is set mainly in decaying cities, while uncharted is set mainly in Jungles. Why are they being compared? It's like comparing Mario Kart to Gran Turismo, only fanboys would care which is "better".

evilunklebud4726d ago

Both look great... and both will be day 1 for me. Can't wait.

nveenio4726d ago

My question about split screen and 3D was legitimate. I don't own a 360, and the only Gears I played was the first one on PC. So I've no idea what features the multiplayer has.

MaxXAttaxX4726d ago

Even the unpolished old-built Beta of UC3 shows great lighting.

Or how about this:

Or better yet! Let's wait until the game has been finalized and released. I believe the SP will be incredible :)

SilentNegotiator4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

How convenient that they're moving in most of the pictures that they're comparing textures in the Uncharted ones, but they're standing perfectly still in the GeOW ones. How blurringly convenient.

Can't wait to see the campaign comparisons. Uncharted obviously made the most sacrifices for the multiplayer - Uncharted 2's SP looks a million times better than these pics. That's what they spend the most time on in developing GeOW.

Mr_Lu_Kim4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

HAHAHA which outdated console game running on 6 year old tech looks better?

Hey people they both look like shit already, as shitty as the last 2 titles of both series and in the end they both suck to play online and after the fist play through of SP it's of to the bargain bin at EB games for both titles.

Grow the f up already /s

AAACE54726d ago

All AA does is smooth out edges! There was little to no jaggies that I spotted and I played the beta nearly every day! So I really don't see how it could be distracting. It's not like the game's graphics were so terrible that you couldn't see enemies in the distance clearly.

Boody-Bandit4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

Uncharted 3 > Gears 3 graphically just like UC2 > Gears 2 and UC > Gears was / is.

No sense debating it.

ThanatosDMC4726d ago

The U3 beta looks horrible compared to the U2 online but then again it is a beta. They'll iron it out later.

Army_of_Darkness4726d ago (Edited 4726d ago )

I agree with you bro. uncharted 3 beta right now does look kinds crappy compared to UC2. I actually even think that gears3 beta looks better!!

these UC3 images are really ugly compared to the E3 demo! OMG! HUUUUGE difference!

Consoldtobots4726d ago

this is a joke right? Uncharted pops out of the screen at you while Gears look like a highly polished version of the same unreal engine they've been using for years. And from the look at the agree/disagree ratios it looks like xbox fb's are out to ram their deluded beliefs down everybodies throat.
