Judging from the screens it doesn't really hold a candle to D3 in the graphics department. Dissappointing really.

I think your being a bit harsh - maybe save the judgement for the finished single player game...........

I hav'nt played this though so I cant speak from experience.

I don't - It could totally suck the big one for all I know

My point is this: I was in the farcry multiplayer BETA and that really did suck ass - terrible FPS, mad lag, foating guns, unfinished effects ect ect - the final single player game was a dream.

or maybe im too stoned.........and like the pretty pictures

if memory serves you did'nt like DOOM3? - I loved it so perhaps we just dont have the same taste in games......?

So far I'm not overly impressed, looks like every other FPS I've seen in the last 2 years. Having not played it, I'll reserve judgment until final product, but I'm so tired of FPS games, it would have to be really impressive to pull me in at this point, groundbreaking. This, it would appear, is not. The last really good shooter I played was Max Payne 2, 3rd person, but still...

Also, you guys are ragging on FEAR, but it's an MP beta! Look at SC:CT's MP beta, it's graphics are horrible compared to the actual SC:CT SP graphics.

In fact there's a Performance test in the demo, that actually uses the game's engine, kinda like HL2's test.

Just to show you guys, here's the game's stress test. For those of you that don't know what a Stress Test is, it's when the game runs a "demo" that uses that game's actual in-game engine to produce scenes so that it can determine the best settings for you. Everything is made by the game's engine, it's not a CG scene. Let me remind you people raggin on F.E.A.R, MP betas usually don't take full advantage of the game's engine like the SP does, or only uses bits and pieces of the engine, aka SC:CT MP demo.










You can't say that isn't sweet looking.

By the way, I have FSAA off, that's why there are so many jagged edges, if I had it on, my PC would run like crap playing the game

Yea, this was directed at Saturn, who likes to bash early beta phases of the MP parts of games, Sat you should know beta It's not unheard of to see a MP game look worse than the actual SP game...

I am very impressed so far. A Doom3 and Counter-Strike feel as someone else said but it make sit play and feel different from anything out there IMO. The graphics are also awesome if you fix your settings right, you just have to tweak all the settings and it will look and run like butter. Also I noticed soft shandows kills your performance so if your having problems it may be that or AA AS which your really dont need with soem of the settings options they give.

Awesome graphics and I keep thinKing of Halo2 for some reason.

What the hell just happened? We've had 3 pages of pics that look like ass and then all of a sudden, WHAM, nice looking pics outa nowhere? Does the game look as good as the stress-test? Or is just certain parts of the game that look nice while the rest look generic?

The MP beta is a very early beta. I.e. the engine hasn't been fully implemented yet. The final product will (according to Mono) look like the performance test. Just right now, it's still a beta, an early beta, and like I said before, the engine isn't ready to be put to full use yet, hence why some of the graphics aren't as bump mapped and textured and objects in the environments aren't movable/destructible yet.

Edit: And the guy's pics right above mine look a lot better than some of mine, probably because 1) My JPGs are saved wierd, and 2) He probably has FSAA on, whereas I didn't. And my volumetric lighting density was only set at medium.


Edit2: If you want to see my settings, check at my settings pics on page 3. Oh btw, all those pics that look all bloody and jumbled up is because it's on slow mo, and everything looks really wierd in slow mo, trust me. Except for the one with the blood all over the glass window, that wasn't slo-mo
