So I Figure in this bordom I would do a Graphics thread, system wars seems to clinge onto these like The Dr to Aliens,to make the screenshots original in the way they were taken all images are from http://forums.gametrailers.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1270337&start=20 and http://forums.gametrailers.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1232068&start=2420

I know you cant compare them But it's system wars when was the last time we had some big insane non thinking graphics debate?.............with games not in the same genre, hell if we hate it lets change it to other graphical beasts of the systems, Oh who am I kidding we all no Halo 4 wins :D

Halo 4 seems to look better. Haven't played either though.

Halo 4 looks miles better.

It is subjective but I would take Uncharted 3 any day of the week, but I'm also a HUGE Uncharted fan.

In terms of graphics Uncharted wins but that is to be expected because it's a PS3 only game, and therfore the devs can take full advantage of the PS3's extra power.

Uncharted 3 and Halo 4 both look their best during their desert parts. IMO: Campaign: Uncharted 3>Halo 4 (not by a lot though) Multiplayer: Halo 4>Uncharted 3 Co-op: Halo 4>Uncharted 3 Soundtrack: Halo 4>Uncharted 3 Graphics: Uncharted 3>Halo 4 Story: Halo 4=Uncharted 3 (both are equally dissapointing)

You thought the story for Uncharted was disappointing? UC3 is easily the best in the series, it's more serious and Drake's motives are questioned. To me Uncharted wins in all those categories you mentioned.

But I'm an Uncharted fanboy so :P

It had a lot of undeveloped ideas and just didn't know what it wanted to be towards the end. It also had a ton of filler.

[spoiler] The ending is recycled from Uncharted 2 (Drake goes to save important character, fights through convoy/caravan, finds ancient city, fights monsters, fights antagonist, city destroyed, Drake barely makes it out) of course there was the use of hallucinations which was a smart but debatable idea. Marlowe was useless as a villain. Ramses was shoehorned in to showcase some sweet water levels. I liked Talbot but he was underdeveloped. Both Cutter and Chloe bail out (Cutter broke his leg but in real life their voice actors had other commitments). These are just a few things. [/spoiler]

Eh halo 4's co op is some of the blandest stuff I've ever played. I found UC3's co op to be crazy fun not to mention hoard mode with actual humans ( something Halo 4 removed) aswell as a villian CO OP campaign was fun. Graphics in this thread are definitly biased, worst vs best, and even then aside from the **** chloe screen it looks quite good.

UC3 MP graphics are lacking. SP it beats Halo 4's SP, MP is a slight edge in Halo 4's favor, Split screen UC3 wins just for the sake that Halo 4's split screen is piss poor.uncharted-3-creepy-crawler-kickback.jpg

I just prefer the amount of content in Halo 4's co-op, especially co-op campaign. (plus co-op=4 players) It's not as good as Gears 3's co-op options but it's just something I prefer. It's basically up to one's own opinion.

Uncharted 3 is vastly better in the graphics department I'd say. There is so much more attention to detail as well.

platniumgamer

Is a mile two inches in your country?

I would give the very, very slight edge to Halo 4. You could argue either way.

#27 Posted by Chutebox (38342 posts) -

Uncharted

#28 Posted by ZombieKiller7 (6218 posts) -

To my eyes Halo 4 looks a little more polished graphically.

Not that either of these games are worth my time.

Low-res flat textures, jaggies galore, horrible LOD and pop-in, very low AF, 720p, massive bloom overuse, crawling shadows, etc.

720p doesn't make it bad. I've seen 720p games that look better than 1080p games.

720p doesn't make a game bad, it just makes it blurry. You may have seen 720p games that beat 1080p games, but that is because of your viewing distance (or you aren't comparing games from similar release dates).

Plus, I play in 1440p, so imagine what 720p looks like on my monitor.

It was an exaggeration.

I do get a small headache, however, but that is moreso the framerate.

Because it is a bad looking game.

Face it, the bullshots are innacurate.

Halo 4.

But the difference is hardly significant.

Baloney, it looks great in motion.

It just doesn't have much depth to it or anything interesting, it's Tomb Raider without the boobs.

Graphically it does look great while you're actually playing it but that's mostly the artwork not the hardware.

Actually I have played all 3 Uncharted games on my ps3 and yes Halo looks better imo. Since you are a blind cow though it is understandable why you try and dismiss anyone that does not say Sony is the best.
