Watch this video first:

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/39681.html

It was just posted today. Anyways, I expected this game to boast much more impressive visuals. After playing Pure, honestly, I'm rather unimpressed with how this looks. The water effects and shadows, not to mention the lighting, all look better in the Pure demo I just played the other day. The water effects don't look nearly as good, plus the flickering shadows bother me. There's texture pop-in, too. Please no flaming, just share your thoughts. I'd like to know what others see that's so great looking in this game.

Nope not at all. Graphically, I don't mind much anyways. Even though Motorstorm lacked alot of content, what it did have was great.

I thought it was one of the better looking ps3 titles.

The vehicles look meh but the enviroment looks amazing, I think all that time spent on DLC really took away from the Dev time they could have put into Motorstorm 2.

PURE IS CRAP,you cant even do a 360 without it resetting you.

I think anyone who thinks it even comes close to MS1 is crazy let alone MS2.

sorry but any racing game that doesnt let you do a 360 =instant FAIL!

Hmm I think it looks good, nice colors etc. but I also think that you're right about Pure looking better...

nah, everytime I see it it looks pretty sick.
#15 Posted by ChrnoTrigger (2155 posts) -

Coming from playing Pure, it doesn't look as good but the map that you linked us to is not one which shows off the graphics much. The water looks phenomenal in some of the other stages.

But I still think Pure will end up looking better graphically. The demo left me breathless when playing it on HD!

Seriously, Pure was awesome to play and it looks great. I don't see all the hate. Plus, it scored a 9/10 from OXM. Btw, I only played Pure on the PS3.

Every game is in beta form a few months before they release, but it's alright for others to start threads about how unimpressed they are with how Resistance 2 or Gears 2 looks. :| How often do games greatly improve over a few months time? Please, contribute without getting so defensive.

#24 Posted by TenP (3338 posts) -

Well, it's not that graphically impressive.

But I think they're going the way of the first one where they're working out tinks in the gameplay before spending time really working on the graphics.

KZ2's textures are much better now compared to when it was first shown @ E306.

I've been following the game since the very beginning. It still looks the same, unless we're speaking about the '05 tech trailer, then it actually doesn't look as good currently.

#30 Posted by Episode_Eve (16986 posts) -
It happens with many games. Halo 3's textures were improved ALOT just months before release.

Motor Storm will look and play better then Pure. If your not hyped about Motorstorm shift over your preorder to Pure. By the way that video looked crappy it will look far better in person. Pure is fun but I like Motorstorm is alot funner to me.
#41 Posted by Episode_Eve (16986 posts) -

If you don't see a difference in texture quality you are blind ;). This is E3 06-January 07 as GDC. A six month span.

But seriously people, common sense tells us that games can look better within months of release. It happened with Halo 3, Gears 1, and Metal Gear Solid 4. It could very well happen with Motorstorm 2 (like the game looks bad as it is...).

Of course not; this is system wars. Regardless, I think Motorstorm 2 is a damn fine looking game, but with that said, i definitely think Pure looks better. Plus, Pure is just so much fun to play, it's like SSX with ATVs.

Pure looks amazing and so does MS2. Everyone should watch the E308 trailer for MS2.

What has me interested in MS2's graphics are the environmental hazards/ variations, awesome crashes/physics, multiple view angles and there are multiple vehicles. We will see which one looks better once the are released.

maybe not the entirely best place for this....but kinda on topic. I just played the Pure demo...that game is pretty sweet. I will be picking that up for sure.

Edit: Holy hell what happened in here :? I look up and I see Killzone 2 pics in the thread. Talk about derailed.....

:lol: It was apart of my argument saying most games look better over time (in this case Motorstorm). Someone said KZ2 hasn't gotten any better over time. And I showed that it does.

This is s graphics thread so it's kind of on topic :P. KZ2 happens to show up everywhere...

Glad you liked it, too. I didn't put too much faith into the OXM review, because I thought to myself how good could a Disney game really be, then I played the demo, and I was blown away. I wasn't expecting much, but it's the most fun and one of the better looking racing games I've seen on consoles.

I think GameTrailers vids do Motorstorm no justice either there of pretty crappy quality. To the TC I enjoyed the Pure demo also, it a fun arcade racer in the vein of "crap forgot the name of the SSX meets Motocross game". But MS2 will be everything MS1 should have been. Whats great about MS was the brutal AI you earned every victory.
