I have to say, I am really interested in Modern Warfare 2, the new ad looks quite nice. Not sure what game engine it employs but the various environmental effects look close to a lower level of CE2, which is never a bad thing

BioWare also has some good stuff.

This isn't necessarily my fave engine, but it's not been mentioned yet...

Monolith's Lithtech engine from FEAR. No other engine takes advantage of your hardware like this engine, and the game wan't too bad either.

as far as the ability to render insane quantity of everything imaginable and scalability, currently on the market, the Cryengine2 has my vote. Yeah source looks good but it only has a fraction of the rendering prowess that CE2 has.

Fakefactory himself has said that the source engine is extremely limiting in it's rendering power and resources but I think that for its age and how well Valve has managed to continuously update it, it does still look very good specifically with the fakefactory cinematic mod and most definately gives decent visuals considering how old the engine actually is.

But... lets not kid ourselves, it's an old engine and the old gray mare isn't what she used to be. There are bigger and better engines now. U3 is decent.. I just wish more games used it the way bioshock does.... COLOR IS YOUR FRIEND!

I hope EP3 introduces a much needed overhaul to that engine as far as rendering distance, detail level, etc goes becuase visually, it just doesn't compare to the cryengine.

I think that the Tech engine carmack was showing off for RAGE was very very nice but I want to see full size full res screenshots. The one thing I do know is that chances are, whatever generation hardware it's targeted to run on, it'll run better than the cryengine did/does.

I can't beleive no one has mentioned the serious sam engines yet! The SS 1 engine was groundbreakin when it came out. it bested the unreal engine in every way possible back in the day!

The renders from the SS3 engine looks amazing and I've never heard of this chrome4 engine?? Is it from chrome the game? Confused if so since chrome 2 is still missing in action.

Xray engine gets props too. I just re-installed clear sky a couple of days ago and playing through the swamps using the new gtx 275 and all the new DX10 effects look great.

definitely good things in the game engine world on the horizon..

Though I really wasn't a fan of the game style, I think visually Mirrors Edge had GREAT graphics. Less was certainly more.

People meantion Cry Engine 3, but apart from over-the-top colour bleeding, i have seen nothing in CE3 that looks better than Cry Engine 2.

I'm sure performance, ease of use etc have all been increased significantly.

Source is a nice and easy engine to use, i have had some success with it, never done anything serious though.

Unreal engine is also very easy for tinkering but if you try to do anything significant like change something fundamental and you will run into loads and loads of difficulties in my experience.

Cry Engine 2 progressivly gets buggier the deeper you delve into it, and quite alot of things in the Cry Editor are set in concrete, but i have had little experiance in doing stuff like that.

Naughty Dogs Engine for Uncharted and Uncharted 2. If you wana talk about an engine that can take advantage of hardware thats the engine. Unlike The Cry Engine which uses pure muscle to accomplish its goals the Uncharted engine can put out amazing graphics and animation on alot more limited hardware (the engine is an evolution of the Jax Engine on PS2).

Before you go comparing Uncharted 2 to Crysis, look at the hardware its running on to achieve its goals... and now imagine what Uncharted 2 could look like if it were running on the same hardware. /drool
