Halo 4 looks just as good as any PS3 exclusive.

No, at least for Halo 4 since it looks better than most PS3 exclusives and is around the best ones that came out to this day.

I'm not a fanboy, so here's my honest answer:

[spoiler] Because the PS3 is the most powerful console in the world [/spoiler]

#203 Posted by BlbecekBobecek (2689 posts) -

But I thought GTAIV looked great back in the day:|

Obviously it doesn't look that good now, but I can't think of any other open world games in 2008 that could compete with it on a visual level.

Master_ShakeXXX

I played GTA IV in 2010 and I thought it looks really bad. Then again, it was after I played Uncharted 2 that changed standards for graphics of every single one of us once we first saw a gameplay footage. Maybe if I saw GTA IV before Uncharted 2 showed us how games can also look, I would think its ok.

[QUOTE="DarkLink77"] Open world games rarely have good visuals.DarkLink77

I think the more recognized open world games have been consistently good looking lately (GTAIV, RDR, Just Cause 2, Far Cry 3, even Skyrim). InFamous 2 was one of the uglier open world games in recent memory.

GTAIV looks like ass, Shake. I'll give you Red Dead (which doesn't look amazing, just good), but Just Cause only looks good on a high-end PC (where everything looks good), and Far Cry 3 gets a pass because it's an FPS running on the CryEngine. But most legit open-world games like Prototype, inFamous, GTAIV, etc. do't look that great.

Isn't the Dunia engine just a heavily modified version of the Cryengine?

The PS3 doe's have a small amount of RAM 512Mb all together but how it use's it is the key and that PS3's ram even though it's not a lot runs at around 3.2Ghz which is pretty much faster then anything you will can get in any up to date PC. So it's swings and roundabouts, PC wins still because of the amount of RAM most gaming PC's have normally around the 8GB mark but it all runs at a slower speed. Also optimization of the games for PS3 or any console is a lot better then a PC game. Yeah the PC version of the game will most of the time be the best version of the game but to play it at such a high level will need a powerful rig. If a developer is creating a game just for the PS3 they know what everyone is going to be playing on it like what GPU, CPU the amount of Ram etc etc. When multiplat games need to remember that it is going to be played on other machines with other specs and power some will be weaker then others while others are stronger have diffrent GPU's, CPU's, amount of ram and speed of ram and what OS it is using the list goes on and on. And the more then have to create the one game to work on many system setups will normally bring the level of optimisation down.

Agree that Halo4 looks great but i still think its not on the same level as Killzone 2 & 3.. (am comparing fps titles)

But i must also say that the likes of Halo4 & Geow series can go head to head (visually) easily with the best PS3 exclusies..

My personal opinion though remains that GOW, Uncharted titles & KZ series are the best looking games on PS3 and consoles in general

Didnt noticed those the last time PAL360 posted similar reviews. I thought they were the same. That still isnt proof of anything. Those are 4 perspectives. Others may think differently. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

and the 3rd one you posted clearly statess "PROBABLY" and "FIRST PERSON SHOOTER". So that one is invalid. its only 3 perspectives that THINK its the best looking game on consoles. Until something like digital foundry or lens of truth do a clear comparisson between the best looking games its all speculation.

For ex, when Crysis 2 came out every review out there was stating it was the best looking game on consoles to date until:

Halo 4 is easily on Par with any Ps3 exclusives imo and as far as technical graphics go, Show me one Ps3 exclusive that Runs FXAA and 4xMSAA in tandem and still holds a steady 30 FPS framerate, people need to grow up and realise that these consoles are so identical in power it's just not funny And quite honestly the cows on here need to be more objective instead of just sticking there fingers in there ear and Refusing to Admit the Truth, That the 360 is just as capable a games machine as the Ps3 and cvan Produce Visuals on Par with the Ps3, at the moment all i see in this thread is a list of Experts saying that Halo 4 is One of the best looking games on Consoles and Complete idiots on these boards who have no idea what they are talking about calling those Experts Wrong, Idiots who think they Know better than Soebody that does it Proffessionally for a living.

Halo 4 stomps Killzone 3 in the visual department. I suspected this when I first saw early shots but after actually playing it there is no doubt. As far as GOW and uc3 I find it hard to compare because they're different genres and use different artstyles. But to be honest uc3 has a cartoony style I don't really prefer compared to Halo 4. Not to mention the fact that uc3 suffers from jags I don't see Halo 4 have a problem with. They both have poor anisotropic filtering but halo 4 in addition to having less jags has superior lighting. The lighting in uc3 looks fake and forced. It doesnt look natural at all. Also Halo 4 looks great in SP and MP footage while uc3 mp visuals at times looks like sh*t. I think if I touched my flat screen I'd cut my finger from all the jags.

#225 Posted by ipwnzthaish (232 posts) -

Its scary to think if Sony was a PC company (so to speak) how good their games would look.

Imagine God of War 3 on a PC for instance? or Uncharted 2/3 or Killzone 2/3. I still think GOW3 would be the most epic. Doing all that sh!t but in 1080p, 8 X AA and Dx11 textures, zomg

Mozelleple112
Playing God of War 3 now. Not a good looking game at all. Fixed camera perspective (which is a hallmark of the series), restrictive, linear environments, no physics to really speak of, and flat 2D looking textures, giving everything a static prerendered look reminiscent of the early Resident Evil games. I love the series, mind you, but the God of War games have always heavily cheated to achieve their "impressive" graphics, which look far better in screenshots than on screen. Arkham City on the PC would make the enhanced PC version of God of War 3 you're imaging look ancient by comparison.

You've still never answered the question, have you even played Halo 4, let alone any Halo game? And Halo forums members are bipolar, they complain about anything that's different from Halo 2's multiplayer and want to find reasons to hate new games while praising something they said was sh!t a few months ago.
#241 Posted by Vatusus (4700 posts) -

I've been noticing a phenomena that has been affecting both gamers as critics alike i.e. every new good looking game that comes around is "better" than the best good looking game before it

the same happened with Crysis 2 where every critic out there and their mother called it graphics king on consoles

BUT then a closer technical analysis said otherwise

http://www.lensoftruth.com/head2head-killzone-3-vs-crysis-2-analysis/2/

Although Crysis 2 looks fantastic on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the graphics crown still belongs toGuerrillas Killzone 3. Not only does Killzone 3 look graphicallybetter, the performance its more stable throughout.

I have the feeling the same is happening with Halo 4 and the same will happen to The Last of Us. Its a never-ending cicle

And dont even come saying LensOfTruth is bias. Fanboys had no problem quoting it when in 90% of comparissons they gave the edge to the 360 version of multiplats

Wow, good job cherry picking one of the worst Halo 4 screens you could find.

Here's a better comparison.

My non-bias analysis tells me Halo 4 has better textures while Killzone 3 has better post-processing effects. They both do amazing things on their own. Its rather stupid comparing both

I've been noticing a phenomena that has been affecting both gamers as critics alike i.e. every new good looking game that comes around is "better" than the best good looking game before it

the same happened with Crysis 2 where every critic out there and their mother called it graphics king on consoles

BUT then a closer technical analysis said otherwise

Although Crysis 2 looks fantastic on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the graphics crown still belongs toGuerrillas Killzone 3. Not only does Killzone 3 look graphicallybetter, the performance its more stable throughout.Vatusus

I have the feeling the same is happening with Halo 4 and the same will happen to The Last of Us. Its a never-ending cicle

And dont even come saying LensOfTruth is bias. Fanboys had no problem quoting it when in 90% of comparissons they gave the edge to the 360 version of multiplats

Just out of curiosity, at what point did people turn against LensOfTruth and stop referencing it? I remember people use to reference it all the time but now they only use digital foundry.

[QUOTE="ziggyww"]

[QUOTE="greensand24"] Halo 4 stomps Killzone 3 in the visual department. I suspected this when I first saw early shots but after actually playing it there is no doubt. As far as GOW and uc3 I find it hard to compare because they're different genres and use different artstyles. But to be honest uc3 has a cartoony style I don't really prefer compared to Halo 4. Not to mention the fact that uc3 suffers from jags I don't see Halo 4 have a problem with. They both have poor anisotropic filtering but halo 4 in addition to having less jags has superior lighting. The lighting in uc3 looks fake and forced. It doesnt look natural at all. Also Halo 4 looks great in SP and MP footage while uc3 mp visuals at times looks like sh*t. I think if I touched my flat screen I'd cut my finger from all the jags.The_Game21x

JJ Abrams must have played a part in the production of Halo 4.

idk. Thats still doesnt invalid the detailed tech analysis they made between both. Or are you going to call them bias now when they basically gave the edge to the 360 version in 90% of comparissons?

Accepting or not, they still tested the games. I see no reason why would they lie about it

That looks like a more accurate comparison. I found Halo 4 looking better overall than any of the KZ games as well.
