Rage with pre backed lighting fall short off Killzone 3.

First pont. 

Kilzone 3 - 30fps

Rage - '60 FPS'

I would love to see Killzone 3 at double the frame rate.

 

Easily one of the best looking video game I've seen so far at E3 2010.

Rage blew me with its rich, vibrant settings powered by id's new graphics engine. Oddly enough, for a game rife with gore and killing, what made the biggest impression on me wasn't the action or the violence but the gorgeous, "hand-crafted" environments that Rage creative director Tim Willits was enthusiastic about showing off to the audience. The tremendous level of detail on Rage's settings is emphasized by the game's powerful id Tech 5 engine. The Dead City, which is essentially a giant pile of collapsed skyscrapers, road signs, and concrete debris, was particularly impressive.

The long development time for Rage seems to be worthwhile. The new video footage from E3 2010 can be more than excellent. Rage is a top candidate for the title "graphic-Hammer."

We've seen and written about Rage  in the past, and many of the gameplay elements on display were repeat showings. Things like vehicular combat, a wicked bladed boomerang, and item scavenging were quickly shown to refresh everybody's memories, or get them up to speed. During this time, all I could do was sit back and marvel at the graphics. Rage is easily one of the best looking games I've seen, even with the entirety of 2010 left as development time for id to further polish it. The crazy part? The demo was shown on an Xbox 360 and id was happy to point out that the ''CURRENT'' PS3 version was running even more smoothly.

Okay, someone seriously needs to embed a video interview of RAGE...

Might as well be me ^_^ And might I add, this is easily one of my most anticipated games.

Looking at Crysis 2 (at least the console footage) it's not impressing me quite like the original did, in fact, not even close. That said, it DOES look good, nothing short of it.

To the Rage vs KZ3/Crysis 2 talk, I still think Killzone 3 may have the edge when all is said and done. From what I've seen of all of them, I think KZ3 still edges out the win, but Rage looks fantastic and Crysis 2 is right behind it. Rage will likely top them both with textures, Crysis 2 will probably top the others with colors, but Killzone 3 will have the overall prowess to pull off the win, I think. Of course it's exclusivity will play a major role, but it is what it is.

Crysis 2 and Rage will win on massive environments. All the previews as well say a enemy appeared before the end of the 20 min demo of Rage that was about the same size as the big ones from GOW3. 0.0

Worth noting to is Crysis 2's full destruction. Again worth noting is that Rage is running double the framerate of both Crysis 2 and Killzone 3. 

None of the above games have as high a enemy count as Halo Reach, but KZ3 only impressed me for the water. And it was beautiful water. But the rest was very good. Just not Rage or Crysis 2 good.

Also worth noting is Crysis 2 is the only game of the above doing everything in full realtime. 



Its much easier to do "60 FPS" with prebacked lighting. And animation is another area in which Rage doesn't come close. And those gun models are still the best ever in any game. Majority of FPS's are in "30 FPS" and KZ3 still tops them. Rage perform better on PS3 but i don't think it will be that much better anyway to top KZ2. Now days people generally have low expectation from multiplatform titles. So when they see game coming close to the exclusives likes KZ3 they start calling it best looking game ever.

Um it's not coming close mate. It's looking unbelievable.

First of all, post me proof of Pre baked lighting in Rage. 

2nd doubling the framerate from 30 - 60 is massive. So massive, if you own a PC you would know how much changing textures down, shadows etc you would need to do just to increase a mere 10 FPS let alone 60!

People dont have low expectations from Multiplats. LOL. 

There is alot KZ3 isnt doing that Rage is doing.

Well from what I've seen around the net, the buzz is mainly on KZ3. Time will tell which will look better, even though none of it will matter in the long run but otherwise, all is speculation/opinion/perspective.

You do short change KZ3 though.

Why are people fighting over Crysis vs Killzone, just buy a PS3 and you would get both


/thread end


This

PS3 gets both KZ3 Crysis 2 why argue?


Also Rage on 1 disc ^_^

OT: I have to agree with the masses. KZ3 and Rage impressed me more. Especially in motion.



4 ≈ One

I was really dissapointed in Crysis 2 based on what we saw. I don't get the fuzz.

RAGE looks awesome for an open world ... ... thats it though.

Killzone 3 was in-fkin-sane.

Aaand..


GRAN TURISMO 5 RAPED THEM ALL COMBINED! (Seriously duude, GT5 omg)



Has anyone checked out these screenshots, supposedly "one from the PC and one from the 360".  Either way, one of them is without a doubt higher quality than the other (booth look fantastic tho).



Oh and by the way,

All you PS3 owners should play Uncharted 2 again. I recently started as I met 5 people all from the same country as me while playing it online. I'm now playing it on crushing difficulty and guys...
I'm sorry to say that Uncharted 2 takes a piss at God of War 3. What made me think otherwise or even question it was GoW3s epic scale and Kratos look.(He scared me maaan!)

Based on everything we've seen so far, be it Crysis/Rage/Bulletstorm/Killzone 3, I still feel Uncharted 2 has the edge. I mean seriously, go replay it and youll see what im talking about :>.

I can only say the only game that I rather stare at is GT5, those cars... *Jizz.

Sure all of these games are diffrent genres but im talking about the beauty of watching each game!

PS3 DUDES GO PLAY UNCHARTED 2 NAOWZ! Ya'll must have forgot :0
