Looks very impressive...agreed that it's not on the Crysis level but nevertheless.

Awesome screens.

And that .pdf was a good read. I don't understand most of it but I love seeing how they put stuff like this together. Writing a modern game engine seems like a huge amount of work, and writing one that completely changes the way texturing is done has to be an enormous undertaking.

Kudos to id for trying something different and having it turn out so well.

Also, as to the Crysis vs Rage comparison, I think I'm still leaning toward Crysis in overall quality, but the setting is so different its hard to make a direct comparison. I don't think a vast, open world that relies on texturing rather than foliage would work as well in Cryengine 2.

Another thing to consider is performance. I don't know what frame rate Cryengine 2 (or 3) could manage on an Xbox 360 in a Rage-like setting, but I doubt it'd be the 60fps that id are shooting for, and it wouldn't have as much variation in the terrain. CE2 is an amazing engine, but I think idTech5 is going to be better for anything that doesn't involve forests.

I agree.

I've always like id's engines. They just have a great feel to them.

Unreal Engine was great for a while but after UE2.5 it seems like things have just gotten sloppy. Not to mention buggy on PC... I've never seen so many refresh rate and vsync related problems.

Right off the bat I will say it looks nice.. the game is looking great. However I allready knoww a few things...and I can see it biting the engine in the ass allready. Tech5 is still DX9, we won't see lighting nearly as realistic, nore will we see atmospheric conditions (volumetric clouds with realtime shadowing) that come from dx10. It is also plainly obvious the sky box is a static bitmap, and when the game is in motion will probably look like crap. The game looks like the next generation of the oblivion/fallout engine, it is unfortunate that it has been leep frogged already by crytechs.

If you mean by reasiltic lighting a realtime calculated materials, you are most likely right.
In case you mean overall outdoor lighting for static objects I kind of doubt it, the game has proper light, shadows and indirect lighting baked to the texture.

Remember that the game has been designed to run 60fps on current consoles, so it has quite strict limitations where you can waste the rendering time.

But how important are those things? I didn't really notice those things a lot in Crysis, but I sure as hell noticed the ****ty looking rocks that were all over the place. Plus how many games push Rage's graphics at 60fps on the 360?

PS, not saying Crysis looked ****ty...just the rocks (which I thought was bizarre given how prominent they were)
