Again, to be clear on the issue...
Im talking about the overall "look" of the game. Nothing jumps out at me and says "Holy shit how is that possible, that looks too good!" Its a vast world with beautiful graphics, what more could we ask for? Infact it whats I expected out of Morrowind 4 years ago, I expected graphics like this out of the xbox from the get go(full of jaggies ofcourse) and thats my fault.
I think youre missing my point entirely. Its not like im ripping on the game, you have no idea how bad I want it. When an RPG is tied for first place MOST WANTED for me, Its a BIG deal. Ask kage.
I'd put it along the same lines as Call of Duty 2. Very impressive but Not a eye opener "compared" to certain others, thats all. And whats the similiarity? Its on pc as well. Coincidence?
How it manipulates foliage, next gen.
threading and Ai..next gen.
the visuals don't impress me near as much as others though. It doesnt have to, its going to be a masterpiece.
Maybe I'll change my mind when Im sitting infront of it moving in its 77" form.
We wont see the graphical boundries pushed unless its totally exclusive to the 360 and teams working on the game work just on that system for years. Recon 3 could look a LOT better from what Ive seen, but they are spreading themselves across 3 or 4 other platforms.
Dont get me wrong, it looks excellent. But "looks"next gen? Very debatable.
Same goes for DOA 4. I can see why people complain how its not a huge step forward. Not much to work with because hes keeping the art the same, and they already set the bar high with their past games.
When I look at DOA 4 I see a high res, jaggy free, enhanced lighting, DOA ultimate. And that is heaven in itself
Think of DOA 3..did it look next gen compared to part 2? I dont think so. Snazzier graphics, cleaner lines, yeah.
The only serious jump in that series was from part 1 to part 2 in my opinion.
same goes for VF2 and VF3, huge jump.
go find the differences in that, lol
maybe I'm not making any sense, thats fine
