They're both impressive engines.

I say frostbite 2 is better just from what I have seen. Devs will like the game engine that is easier to develop for and that might bet he cryengine 3.

1.that is off topic
2.idtech 5 sucks(at least on consoles)

"2.idtech 5 sucks(at least on consoles)"

How so? It's like... one of the few engines that runs at 60fps while still boasting decent visuals.
... and RAGE hasn't released yet.

When it comes to consoles the best that I have seen from screenshots/videos is IDtech5. For the PC it would appear that FB2.0 is better if you are aiming for realism because of the lighting.

The Cryengine 3 is very awesome and does many things right but i see the CE3 being the new unreal engine and becoming very generic for video games.

Frostbite 2.0 with it's destruction and physics is very awesome and it doesn't support DX9 which i love.

I've played Crysis 2 DX11 and although BF3 is not out yet.....I'm gonna give the edge to Fostbite 2.0 cause the BF3 blows Crysis 2 DX11 out the water.

but it's a tough call.

Can't really tell at this point.

Both have cutting edge real time lighting and global illumination.
Both have deep roots with DirectX 11.
Both can render incredibly large maps.
Both can have amazing teams behind them.
FB2 has its awesome world destruction.
CE3 has its amazing modding capability.

First you started with the similarities which makes them excellent then you could go on to their individual strength which makes them both great in their own ways.

beastgamer2633d ago

if i had to be fair, I think cry engine 3 is more amazing, just their own developers don't know how to make a game out of it. We all played crysis 2

Pandamobile2633d ago

Yea, it was pretty awesome.

The best engine with regards to visuals is probably the Real Virtuality engine used by Bohemia Interactive for Arma games, you only have to look at the new Arma III screens to see that.

C_Menz2633d ago

I disagree, Arma 3 may look great with the draw distances but the visuals overall and in normal view are not on par with B3/Crysis 2

It's not looking bad considering the games not due for a year though.
