Insomniac’s James Stevenson shares new details about the game’s extra development time and graphics engine.
I am very impressed with Resistance 3's graphics this time around. Not quite Killzone 3 quality, but close. Gameplay wise this game blows the doors off KZ3 and KZ2 for that matter.
R3 graphics are quite impressive. I would agree with you, buy saying it blows the doors off KZ3 and KZ2's gameplay ? Not at all, though I love both of them I really prefer to play KZ anytime. Due to its enemies A.I, and gameplay play overrall. Not to mention the graphics. And obviously... the soundtrack. Not bashing Resistance by any means, as I said, I love them both. And I'm so grateful that Sony owns these 2 epic games. We should all be happy to get such games like these ones.
Agreed the gameplay is way better. I just wish they kept the 8 player co-op from 2!
I agree the graphics are fanrastic, really shocked by how good it looks. Gameplay is also awesome, im glad insomniac took their time on this game rather than rushing the game (looking at you KZ3).
They're good if you ignore the absolutely horrendous frame rates.
The storms were captured so well in this game. I found myself just looking at all the cool weather effects from time to time. TBH, the snow in the first game was beautiful, so I was glad to see it return in more ways than one. Very atmospheric and enjoyable game overall.
I have yet to hear anything good about R3's graphics, only complaints. I'd think that I was being trolled by 360 fanboys, but they're legit PS3 gamers doing the complaining.
...meanwhile in reality...
It is what it is. I've actually heard several people say they thought it looks worse than the first Resistance, which I disagree with even though I have yet to play R3 myself. Just judging from the videos I've seen I thought it looked fine. The series has never been a graphical benchmark for the PS3 like Killzone or Uncharted, so I really don't see the big deal either way. Lots of people seem to be enjoying R3, though. Even when complaining about the graphics, they typically have nothing bad to say about the gameplay.
If you have to make a point to explain why your troll sounding comment isn't trolling.... you are probably a troll. Think about that my friend.
I have to admit they really pulled off the sci fi environment a lot better than everything I have seen/played/read in the past few years, really breathtaking!
Loving the violence in the games i cut someone jaw off heheheehe.. Shame u wont be making the next one.. Just pass it to the dutch lads they will take good care of it.
i think the artwork in the game is amazing, the resolution however, looks very low, kind of muddies everything. I'm having a blast with it anyway, just got through another hour(about 4 in) of the single player. I no longer expect to be blown away by consoles titles, I game on pc as well and it does make console games seem older, but the gameplay is all I really care about! I'm playing diablo 2 again, that game looks like crap to be honest, but it is fun as hell!
The graphics are pretty impressive. The animation is complex and detailed. Dust and debris is flying everywhere in some levels. They also seemed to take care of the jagged-edges that I've seen in early previews.
Im sorry but this game does not look anything impressive at all. Their are low resolution everywhere and its so sub HD. Resistance 2 looks way better to me and plays much smoother. Resistance 2 > Halo Reach > Resistance 3 graphics
Resistance 2 looked like ass. 3 isnt exactly breaking any bars, but at least the art style is decent.
I am impressed that they managed to improve the visuals. Insomniac are really talented devs.
Well Resistance 3 didnt live up to my expectations. The low native res and non existant AA is mostly to blame for that. Some textures arent quite up to the standards, they have completely taken out the awesome water from R2 and character detail is low and Malikov looks like a new person entirely, capelli too but malikov looks.. uhm kind of funny and so does a few minor characters through the game. But it does have really nice effects, though a few Im less impressed with like how vegetation sways like they were all in sync lol, but that is just a minor thing, more annoying is the lighting that is clearly baked in the textures. Like when you are in a dark room and some light shimmers through a crack and hits the wall behind it wont interact with other things, enemies or whater can run straight through and you might not see it coming because the lighting wont appear on them. There is some audio problems, and the AI is stupid as a brick. cut scene quality seems to be a bit poor as well, also Im at chapter 18-19 and the game have frozen 2 times already and both times it happened when I brought up the weapon wheel. So I hope Insomniac sees this and patches it up. But the game is incredible none the less lots of neat effects especially weather, particle, some lighting and some physics are pretty good too, the action is epic and the gameplay is good though I would like to be able to remove or tone down the aim assist and adjust vertical and horisontal sensitivity. This far Id give R3 a weaker 8 out of 10, you will love it if you can forgive it for some of its shortcomings, get through the first 2 hours and it will be a rollercoaster.
I'm very impressed with the game so far,visuals in particular.The in-game cutscenes look kinda awkward at first,but it's a great looking game overall.
