The 360 has a LOT more power than is evidenced by this version of Far Cry.

That video shows how the 360 does better water up close. If anything you can see the foilage, hands and such look similar to the pics. Which pretty much confirms these pics are from the 360 version.

Yea I see...I wonder why they would pimp out the water and not the foilage.

Just when you thought Far Cry PC water was as good as it gets, that does look tasty.

reminds me of that warhawk trailer.

Nice video, You can see where each system excells at. The PC version has lower quality waves but better effects when being shot aswell as it looks to render waves at a greater distance. The x360 just looks amazing close up but at a distance very flat... and what the hells up with almost no reaction to being shot...

I will still get it though, its something to play on my X360... I got bored of Need For Speed (well Radiata Stories actually drew me away...)

Wow, that has to be the most amazing water I've ever seen in a videogame. I mean Far Cry and Half-life 2 were pretty good, but that...geez, that's getting pretty close to photorealism. The rest of the game looks pretty good too, anywhere from a little bit better than the original Far Cry to substantially better. Some AA and less "foliage through the ground" defects would certainly help, though.

It's probably using a form of parallax mapping for the wave effect, not polygons, making it a texture filtering issue. You can see the same thing happen in BF2 by switching between trilinear and aniso filtering, and it's just more pronounced in this case due to the waves having more 'depth'.

Um, Ok... what the hell does this have to do with my post? Never mentioned the waves rendering technique at all..
