Well the ads are made with the PC version, and yes it is going to be a lot better than the console versions. This is just a given

What kinda tv are u gaming on? I don't have the game but from all the gameplay footage I've seen on the 360 version it looks great to me. I'm sure the pc version trumps it by far.

Yeah, I like Hitachi as a brand. I had a 46in HDTV back in the day and it was stout. Well, if the graphics are bad I would be disappointed, especially seeing how good Far Cry 2 looked. Oh well, might as well get it for the PC.

thats not the hitachi with the motor in the stand is it? Hitatchi hasnt had TV's in Australia for 5 years.

when in the game, press hte info button on ur remote to make sure the console is spitting out at least 720p, if its not, check ur settings. plus what do u consider bad? low FPS? blurry textures? pop in?

You must play without a HDMI Cable or something. The graphics are fantastic.

Actually it is the older model 360 without hdmi and i am using component. I have a vga cable. Do you think that would make that much difference? It just has bad textures and screen tearing and generally just doesnt look good. Maybe i will try the vga cable and let you guys know how much better it is. I was even thinking maybe it has 2 disks and im missing one?......

I think you may get a slightly better picture in VGA. I had those cables and it seemed more crisp to me, versus component anyways.

Switching to a digital output should improve the image quality a bit... but it's still not going to compare ot the PC version.

The PC version has double to quadrupple the texture resolution, it runs at 60 FPS @ 1080p or higher, it supports advanced SSAO shadowing, and features AA + AF, as well as higher quality shadows/lighting.

The limitations of the old consoles are technical, just that simple.

It looks amazing on PC, that is with all Ultra settings, some breathtaking graphics if you ask me.

People cant be this dense, can they?

Yes, a game thats playing on a seven year old console looks worse than a PC game on a PC rig of todays standards. I wonder why? this is terrible, how can this be? I'm outraged..

Derp.

I think the campaign graphics for the most part are solid, but the mutli-player graphics look pretty bad. The fps drops online and aliasing is crazy. I thought the single player graphics had way better anti-aliasing and better lighting effects as well.

Compared to the PC, they're absolute trash. But that's true of just about every game. But the graphics on consoles are still pretty decent, except for some blurring and frame rate issues.

Whenever a publisher releases a trailer of a game that is multiplatform, they ALWAYS show off the PC version. Thus, don't get hyped for a game based purely off trailers. The PC version always has better graphics.

**** You either need glasses or just not able to be honest. I have the PS3 and there is constant "patterned" texture like a screen door through everything. It reminds me of the redo Crysis they did for 20 bucks on DLC for xbox/ps3. There IS a texture in everything. How you cannot notice that is beyond me.

Yes there is a textured pattern running through everything. like very very small window-panes or a screen-like texture. It reminds me of how no-one but me saw how AWFUL the graphics were in RAGE...everytime you looked somewhere new it took about a second and a half for the textures to fill in. These graphics remind me of when they re-did CRYSIS for dlc on xbox/ps3...everything had this grainy feel to it. I popped in FAR CRY 2 and that game looked amazing! compared to this. I read how they bragged about the technology and power and lighting and all that jazz but really...JUST LOOK how grainy everything is...it's not smooth and plush like #2 is. I just don't understand how you cannot see this. As far a having fun, I'll give it a 10/10 I LOVE the gameplay on the hardest level and am having a great time but no one is online.

Ads are not Xbox footage ofc. They are state of the art PC versions. But from what i've heard the graphics are still pretty good.

The game looks quite a bit better on PC's, but most games do. I still think the game looks amazing, especially considering the Xbox's tech is, what, 6 or 7 years old now?

That's likely the case. EA did the same thing for BF3, showing off the PC graphics to garner excitement for all the systems.

I'm playing it on the 360 and am finding that the graphics are a very mixed bag. Some of the character models in cut scenes are pretty awful - they stand out from the scenery in a way that reminds me a bit of the digitised fighting games of the 90's. There's a lot of texture pop in at times too. However... explosions are a joy, as is the hang-gliding/driving and the rag doll on bad guys when you shoot them is really cool.

However... it's simply a lot of fun. I always seem to find that, as long as the game's fun, I can forgive a lot of technical foibles. Fallout 3 and Skyrim suffered similarly and I never cared - they were SO big, SO dense and SO much fun that to my mind, if the price I had to pay for that was the occasional texture popping in a second or two late, it was a price I could afford. It's when I come across a game that's a quarter of the size and as buggy as hell that I start asking questions.

360 version has that "mesh" shadow thing going on.

PS3 version has black space around the picture.

Not a very good port, it's basically Crytek putting out a bad product.

I played the 360 version and I have to say it's one of, if not THE best game visually I've played on the system to date
