Question Far Cry vs. Doom 3 graphics

I know they are different in their own ways... etc. But which do you think has overall better graphics? I still cannot decide... I think they both look good in their own ways.

Default Re: Now That We've Seen It... FarCry vs. Doom3 Graphics

both are good in their own rights... but crytek out of nowhere produced far cry and made it the best looking game I have ever played...

doom 3 after about 4 odd years of development was EXPECTED to have stellar graphics and I for one have felt let-down by the whole experience... that said doom 3 imo is probably one of the best atmospheric games out there... and certainly (along with the thief and splinter cell games) one of the darkest...

Just in terms of graphics?

... Dynamic lighting and shadows are done far better in Doom 3 than in Far Cry.

Far Cry seems to have higher resolution textures however, but the low res textures aren't really noticable in Doom 3 with everything else going on.

I'm going to have to say Doom 3 > Far Cry here.

Read your history man, Crytek hardly came out of nowhere...they've arguably been working on Far Cry (CryENGINE™) longer than id has with Doom 3.

During gameplay, Doom 3. For screenshots, probably Far Cry.

I don't know. But Far Cry has its roots in the CryENGINE which has been in development in one form or another since late 1998/early 1999.

I would have to look back, but I had a Crytek demo on my HD since about the GF2 GTS days... Not sure if the file is still there from which I could grab a date stamp...

That demo came out when the gf3 came out if I am not mistaken.

FarCry is my type of game. Doom 3 will be fun when I get my rig up and running but I am a huge HL fan so you can guess what I have been waiting for. Any game that has a gun that can pick up a fridge and throw it at a zombie has gots to be the shizzles.

yeah but still...i had never heard of them until well after FC had been released. Hell, for like 2 or 3 months after FC was released I had no idea who they were or what FC was.

I kept thinking it was some lame Justin Timberlake song or something

Others knew about Far Cry for longer than you or I did I'm sure though. id Software has a proven/glowing track record and so it's only natural for them to be in the spotlight from day one for each game they work on. Crytek was unproven, X-Isle never materialized, etc...again, only natural for them to fly low on radar.
