Exclamation Crysis[PC] vs. Uncharted[PS3]

For sometime i was convinced that Crysis is the best looking game on any platform until yesterday

yesterday i was hanging with some buds & one of the PS3 owners brought Uncharted : Drake's Fortune & i have to say i'm friggin' impressed!~
this is the first game that compete with Crysis [DX10] visually IMO. although it has more Pixxar like graphics (not reallife graphics) i've got to say it looks almost perfect!!
i mean the characters animations & detail , the softshadows & the self-shadows (very high-res shadows .. i couldnt notice too much shadow aliasing) , the bump-maps , the waters (ripples & relections) , the lighting & even the vegetation !! everything seems to blend very nicely. top of all it was running smoothly
i guess teh c3ll is finally showing its true power ?!!
the only take on the graphics was the explosions & the fire effects but thats about it.

summary : as a PC semi-fanboy i feel really threatend by the power of the Uncharted graphics.
& for those who will try to downplay that game my advice : Look first! you'll certainly change your mind.

i can imagine that on a true 1080 Plasma/LCD and the PS3 comes to it´s full right on a TV like that. damn i played some of my 360 games on a 42" PLasma in HD (not 1080) and it was imnpressive especially GOW and Lost Planet then i turned to normal TV and it just wasn´t the same anymore

so sure i can imagine 360/PS3 games can look freaking amazing

I'm not talking about the resolution .. (it was played on a 32" LCD 720p).
the game's graphics are just technically so advanced that it will look amazing even on an old CRT monitor.

I won't say it is better since they are so different... but I like how detailed Uncharted is... like when you go in water how Drake gets all wet, but only the clothes that actually went into water get wet... its pretty awesome.

When I watched some videos of this game, I did notice the moving vegetation and that's about it. The videos weren't HD, so that "may've" had an impact.

Can't say much more as I can't remember too well what the actual game looks like.

Technically Crysis is better, but Uncharted has a lot more polish and better over all art. As with most current console games, extra time is taken to get facial animations just right. The in game cut scenes in Uncharted are amazing. Even my Mom has having fun watching them and she hates my loud video games.

That's strange since you never complain about some of her "loud" activities. With the neighbors. And the mail man. And the milk man. And the guy who works at that convenience store down the way. You know the one I'm talking about.

On topic...

I've had the demo on my PS3 for about a week now. I guess I'm going to have to try it out, now!

The misconception is dx10 is so different from dx9. With a console, knowing exactly what your developing for, I imagine they'll be putting out competitive looking games, graphically, for at least another 2 years.

DX10 won't ever be adopted fully. I'm telling you guys, it will be a big jump to dx11 for pc and consoles next round and thats where the good stuff lies.

Uncharted is very impressive and guessing which style you like more, it can look better than crysis. Realism vs. ultimate cgi

It depends on the style you prefer.

I personally don't feel we're "there yet" for the realism (again that will be dx11) I prefer the cgi look, a more pixar look, I feel were doing that pretty good these days with games like bioshock, gears of war, uncharted, and so on..

Didn't play the whole demo, but WOW, that's pretty damn good.

Graphics wise, I'd say it's a bit of a toss up. I think that Uncharted does have a better art style, and it runs great. Crysis has slightly crisper textures and a better sense of a lush jungle.

Gameplay wise, I'd pick Uncharted. I had a blast with the demo. I didn't go "oooooooOOoooooo aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah" like I did for the first hour of Crysis, but I think I had more fun overall.

Then again, I'm completely sick of FPS.

What's this, no one posting screenshots of Crysis at ridiculous resolutions (at 20FPS) pointing out every single flaw of Uncharted screens?

I'm ****ing shocked.

This one video of the demo, captured with a HD video capture card . The autor is Dot50Cal



The 6 firts screen of IGN - not very good, maybe are with a analogic HD video capture card







Dot50Cal screens - better screens-

Nice for a console, and nice animations, but .. not is Crysis , not is Crysis in very high , high or maybe in medium - but has very nice effects of paralax and shaders , but I believe with the videos and screens that not is comparable . Yes the shadows are very dark - this not have any misterius - and the lighting is aversome , but no Crysis , not have the Crysis vegetation , not have the Crysis draw distance and detaill - awersome in Crysis etc

Example Crysis

0:28
Crysis very high 720p

Why bother? I looked up a few Uncharted screens and didn't see anything better than maybe Tomb Raider Legends.
