Please this isn't even a contest. :lol:

MGS runs in sub 720p,has flat lo-res textures galore and has a wildly unstable framerate.

Gears 2 looks better. MGS4 has far better character models, though.

Im playing MGS4 now and im actually suprised at the graphics, in a good way. Judging from the screens i've seen, it didnt look spectacular but this is definately one of those games that looks much better when playing.

With that said, i still have to go with Gears 2. Looks amazing and is one of the best for the 360.

Seriously, MGS4 is nothing special when it comes to graphics. It has awesome character models, and sound but the environments are awful. Still though, a game doesnt need great graphics to be amazing. Just look at Halo 3.

That, and shadow moses were great looking, but everything else let it down. It can be great at times, and bad at others. Act II looked really bad, its just really inconsistent.

Gears of War actually has more poly's in their character models when compared to MGS4. MGS4 on average only has 10,000 Gears 1 on average had 15,000

Where did you get that info from. So Gears 2 probably has more if Gears 1 had 15,000. Also some character models in MGS4 look a bit like plastic if you know what I mean.

Thanks and I'm surprised that Uncharted 1 has that many polygons in the character models.

MGS runs in sub 720p,has flat lo-res textures galore and has a wildly unstable framerate.

GabeNewellsPie

And still manages to look better than GeoW2! LOL, really says how friggin' brilliant MGS4 was and still is. The overall graphical package is to date still one of the best. Only Killzone 2, Uncharted 2 can beat it at the moment, with MGS4 being almost one and a half years old!

The only thing Metal Gear Solid 4 has that is on par with Gears is character models. Other than that it looks way worse.

idk why mgs4 won a number of graphics of the year awards, although animations/character models are awesome, Gears 2 actually looks overall, better.

the sound, all through out the game though, is epic.

mgs4 is still the better game. :)

You're trying to imply Marcus has more polygons in Gears 1 than in Gears 2, huh...

Because Marcus has 12 000 polygons in Gears 2 while Snake has 15 000 polygons in MGS4.

It's not even a competition. MGS4 the majority of awards for Best Graphics in 2008 and that's from professional reviewers.

Oh, and TC, gotta love how you tried to look up the worst MGS4 screens and the best Gears 2 screens!

Wow Gears 2 actually has a more varied color palette compared to other games. Anyways, I think Gears looks better.
