The water effects in this video are really impressive! Makes me wish I had a XBox 360. :p

I always loved Far Cry's bright outdoor areas that were a nice change from most FPS that seem to be mostly corrider shooters. I am almost certainly buying this when I get my Xbox 360 soon.

ah you cant compair them, its been almost 2 years sense the first farcry came out. Now if youve played games like black and white 2 youll relize how breathtaking water effects can be, but remember the waves take a lot of drawing powers to do so many crazy reflection layers, so in a game like black and white 2 where you see across most of a island the waves are small and have little height, but in a FPS your right there so you dont have to draw as much and you can use the extra gpu power for nice wave breaks, anyway yeah its sweet but its would look just the same on computer, and it wont be long untill pc games have the same effects, which isnt that bad when you consider every xbox effects copied from some great pc game that poineered it. Anyway as you can see I dont like xboxes :) but yea cool water, i cant wait to have it in Battle field 3 or something

Of course there is no doubt in my mind that a game developed for current PC's could do this same effect, and possibly even better, but it still looks really cool :D

Yes, that's exactly what it's like: comparing a previous game to a new game. You've never seen a site match the original version of a game to a sequel/upgraded version? I see it all the time, Valve even started their Half-life 2 presentation by comparing it to Half-life 1. I don't see how taking a game that was previously considered a showcase of graphic technology and comparing it to a new version is misleading.

I think the cool thing here is that this weeny-ass console can do that kind of crap. Some of these 360 games are really surprising me. Actually, a large percentage of them are. My PC only fapping policy is going down the tubes fast. I geuss I'll need to get good with the fumblesticks.

The weeny ass console is more powerful than the majority of people's PC's on this forum.

Lets hope that console learns to use 16AF and proper 720p in EVERY game one day. MS should have rather released the Box a few months later so devs could have finished their games properly.
