Looks like a cool game albeit a bit dark.

One thing looks absolutely certain though, the game does not deserve the graphics hype it gets from certain 360 fans. Neither the cinematics nor ingame graphics come remotely near to Uncharted 2 (it was claimed by some this game would surpass Uncharted 2, actually it does not beat Uncharted 1 by a long shot in this sense).

I find it funny and ironic how all of a sudden you PS3 lovers are talking about how this game's graphics are being hyped. You're complaining about the exact same thing you PS3 owners do everytime an exclusive comes out for the PS3, hype it beyond belief. Once again I don't understand why Uncharted 2 is on such a high pedestal. The game looks good but not as amazing as everyone says.

There seems to be an orgy of light effects going on. I hope the game has some bright outdoor daytime moments aswell.

The graphics are very good, especially on the environments.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

I don't think he was complaining :S he just stated his opinion that the recent hype doesn't seem to live up to it 'graphical' wise (It still might be an awesome game)...There were many on this site who were touting the graphical power of this game so critic of it is inevitable...so relax a bit :P No one is trying to destroy your precious game so no need to get all defensive

It does look good, though it does have it's share of issues (low-res textures, screen tearing). HEAVY RAIN had instances of both though, so it's still too early to judge this, especially since it's yet to go gold. No, it isn't currently the best I've seen from the 360 but it's certainly a pretty game.

The tearing is due to the video capture:

 

http://forum.alanwake.com/showpost.php?p=68102&postcount=71

It's got actual tearing, I watched it closely (mainly because I know of such situations). It didn't happen the entire time, which is what that link was claiming, but there is screen tearing present. It's the same tearing I saw pre-HEAVY RAIN launch as well.

Sure, the game will have tearing.  But nothing near what is seen in that video.  The post I linked to is from a Remedy dev.  I think he knows what he is talking about.



I'm kinda iffy about the game now after watching the video:

Positives:
-The Sound was amazing, probably some of the best effects I've ever heard.
-The story gripped me straight away, I couldn't get my eyes away from the video.
-The guy who voiced Alan Wake did a very good job.
-I liked how you heal in the light.
-The lighting was really good and it's use was interesting.

Negatives:
-The game doesn't look as good as people were making it out to be.
-The environment's in the first half look rubbish compared to the second half, which shows inconstancy.
-The characters faces looked hideous in the cut scenes and in game.
-The God-like voice was very cheesy and the whole gun and light thing made me cringe a little.

Anyway that's my 2 cents, hopefully I'm wrong about the negatives and I still think the game will be fantastic besides it's faults.



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.

Uncharted 2 looks amazing:

Sure the PS3 and Uncharted 3 will achieve more, but credit where credit is due.

I'm not getting defensive nor is it my "precious" game. I'm just stating how now that the tables are turned and a great looking 360 exlusive is coming out the PS3 defense team is coming out to knock it down.

On another note why does every 360 thread that has nothing to do with comparing graphics or anything to PS3 get trolled by PS3 owners and the inevitable "It doesn't look as good as Uncharted 2" comes up? Its really getting ridiculous.
TBH this game is not on my to buy list as I have Red Dead Redemption preordered and wait for it.....it doesn't look as good as Uncharted 2! But don't be surprised if the gameplay is better. Thats the only thing that matters. Enough of the graphics comparisons.



I know people expect this from me. But this is easily best graphics on consoles and PC so far.
My mate loves Crysis, and his jaw is on the floor next to me.
Amazing. Absolutely stunning. Cant wait for May 14.

Read selnors post for the answer to your question.... UC2 and GOW3 are the two best console gfx power houses at the moment...so when fans make claims as such, comparisons WILL happen

And really, with 15mins you can't exactly comment much on anything but gfx...story etc is still too early to call
