Digital Foundry vs. Gears of War 3

"It's safe to say that Gears of War 3 is one of the most advanced video games of this generation, and a ringing endorsement of what the Xbox 360 is capable of handling when the right people, the right tech, a lengthy development cycle and an inordinately large budget are in play. From a technological perspective, with just a few caveats that we've touched upon, the overall presentation is first class."

"screen tearing is present and noticeable."

stop trolling:

"Lighting and effects work in Gears of War 3 is a massive improvement over previous UE3 titles"

sack_boi4694d ago

I think he was just quoting the troll above.

1. I didnt troll.
2. DrFUD quoted the article.
3. People judge comments too quicky, I'm not a troll and my comment was relevant.

Gears 3 is the biggest leap in graphics from a sequel on the same generation of hardware, I've ever seen. There is no game out that has done such a thing and it's rather lame that this isn't pointed out.

Killzoned, just stop, you're making yourself look silly...

Gears 3 seems to look awesome. But in all honesty, it can't even stack up against R3 - and I would almost think you could consider these two comparable for various reasons (despite the fact 3rd person vs. 1st - play the R3 campaign - preferably on Superhuman - and you'd understand).

While pretty and great lightning, much improved color palette in G3, still, the levels appear lifeless in my opinion. The visuals look sharp, bright and proper lit (statically, actually lit the same as R3), AA is great. But particles are limited and so is enemy count.

"Biggest leap for a sequel" possibly on the 360, but not across the board.

@Ju, what's funny is you seem to be serious. Whatever though...

I can only hope and pray that other devs who utilize this engine step it up to this level and hopefully surpass it.

Ju4694d ago

With that I agree, actually. And I hope that Epic will start supporting advanced features for the PS3 (like MLAA and deferred rendering) in UE3 (or UE4??) at some point. Still not there, yet.

R3 is sub HD and has a poor framerate. Yes gears framerate dips but the lowest it goes is 24fps which is the average framerate Crysis 2 runs on the PS3.

Ju4693d ago (Edited 4693d ago )

Aha. LOL. Sure.

Funny at the disagrees that UE3 doesn't need a deferred renderer. ha ha ha. UE3 is at its limits. It goes as far as it can. Not even close to modern engines; still remarkable what they squeeze out of that old tech. But a full (SW) generation behind current tech. But it shows the discrepancy and platform problems between 360 (a traditional architecture) and the PS3 (which must emulate that - with obvious deficits).

It's not trolling.

I just checked the gametrailers review and it is sadly noticeable.

But who cares gameplay ROCKS!

AmaZinG. Your comments are WAY off buddy. Uncharted may be a different game than Gears but to class it so lightly ? c'mon. Barely see enemies on screen? What? Go play it then comment. I have not played Gears 3 (and probably never will as Microsoft is evil :) yet but from what I have heard the fans will be very happy. Just don't do the political crap and bash the competition to make you look better. That's not the way to do things. If it's good it's good on it's own merit.
