Technically Gears of War 2 really shows its age in comparison with the best graphics this gen and personally I dislike the character models (especially as in art style).

I am not saying it's a horrible looking game and maybe not the worst looking one in this list, but I even consider one of your favourites, Heavy Rain, to top this head & shoulders in terms of graphics and that didn't make the list.

It's just an opinionated list, so I take nothing personal.

Really, Gears of War 2 may be behind what today's standards are, but it was cutting edge at the time of it's release. Not many games have cleared it.

The original XBox CLEARLY has superior graphics to the PS2.  Wait, what are we talking about?


Unfortunately it had no games to show that. Unlike the ps3.

BTW, the point of this whole thread was to disprove the misconception, pretty diffuse it seems, that Gamereactor said that Cysis 2 has the best graphics. GR did not say that. That's all.

What the fuck. Uncharted 1 > GeoW2 based on that o_O'



@ Aldro

Not only that, technically Uncharted 1: Drake's Fortune had better lighting, anti-aliasing, higher quality textures and higher polygon counts. It's general art style was more appealing to me, such as Drake vs Markus character design.

Of course, I understand Gears of War 2 has a certain cool-factor amongst many XBox fans and it's still a very good looking game.

I've played the shit out of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

And it in no aspect is better looking that Gears of War.  It just isn't.  Its a beautiful game sure, but is nowhere near current standards inlcuding Gears 2.

suprisingly enough Uncharted 1 is still a graphical power house and is still not beaten by more than a handful of games in the graphical department. i would say top 15 easily in graphics.

poly count, resolution, AA, HDR lighting, animations are still unsurpased by most games. if it werent for small faults in the game it could easily be top ten.

character models are still head and shoulders above 99% of games.

its unfortunate that people write off this games graphics, even though this 2007 game if release today would look better than most anything on the market

Actually he's got a point (and quite a bit of reviews agreed). Uncharted 1 did have smoother aliasing and less frame drops than Gears 1, not to mention higher detailed textures, better water effects, and higher polygon character models. Lighting was a toss up, and Uncharted had more screen tearing, but overall, Uncharted 1 etched Gears 1 out on a technical level.

Gears 2 changed the game, and even though Uncharted still beat it in character models, Gears 2 got  more respect, overall, visually. Of course Uncharted 2 put to rest any debate about Gears vs Uncharted visually, but that's irrelevant.

I don't care about technical terms and all this stuff people throw around to be perfectly honest.  A game can have 1 million polys and it can be ugly as hell.

Gears 2 is a better looking game than Uncharted.  By quite a bit.
