Forums - Gaming Discussion - Halo 4 Best looking game this Gen!

This is not up for dispute, I'm just stating my opinion lol. It looks so F-ing incredible! Anyone else think its the best this console gen (so far), or is Uncarted 3 still king in your eyes? I'm hesitant to post any screen shots/comparisons because none of them do the beauty of the campaign any justice. I just want to hear from people who have actually played the game.

 

One things for sure, if a 360 game can look that good imagine what Metroid Prime will look like on Wii U!?!?!? *faints*

At the very beginning I was seriously disappointed. The ship and everything just looked so meh.

But then the scenery changed and at that overlook I was like woah! Defiantly the best looking 360 game.

On X360 yes.  The scenery, world, guns, everything looks great.  I like how they put you behind Masterchiefs visor and make you feel like you are on a whole different planet as some of the scenery is huge.  

Including PS3 you could argue between Uncharted and Halo 4.  No need on comparing as they all look good for being on consoles which are both limited.

If we are including PC not even close.

Now I think of it, I don't think I've seen any PC games which I would say look as good. There are a ton that are technically more impressive, but in terms of the overall aesthetic Halo 4 surpases them IMO.

Let's not go that far, or you will invite many PC folks to post screenshots / footage that will troll this place. ;)

In truth, Halo 4 is probably the best looking FPS on console(s), as well as best looking 360 title, but definitely not ahead of top PC titles. Aesthetics or otherwise.

In terms of textures it doesn't look that good, but the lighting makes the game. It gives the game a nice overall look.

I'd suggest not comparing the graphics to PC games though

Let's not take it that far. I'm not going to post videos or pictures but PC is 7 years ahead of X360 so I'll leave it at that. 



I'm not even a fan of the genre or even the graphical style, but what I see from this game impressed me.

Realistic yet completely unrealistic.
I really love the halo color palette too, since the first game those purples and greens are fantastic.



I will humbly say that, graphically, Halo 4 does its job very nicely.

Best looking 360 game for sure but overall? Don't think so, yet to play the game though. Will buy when I have enough euros to get Gold for a few months/year.
