I'm very impressed with the Criterion art & graphics team. They've managed to pull off stunning visuals on current gen consoles since Burnout 3. It's amazing and I can't wait to see what they do with a unique title on X360.

I'd love to see a next gen version of this.

God this game looks good. Here's hoping that the rumores 360 version is actually in development!

Goodness gracious that looks good. I might pick this game up if it mannages to keep up a good frame rate, and with all the stuff happening on screen at once, it sure will be tough.

For those who missed it here's a presentation video of the game shown a few weeks back. Not fantastic quality but, needless to say the quality of the video is the last thing on your mind watching this.

Have you seen this game in motion LEBATO?
It looks at least that good, sometimes much better.

Haha, that's funny.

Watch the videos, then you'll know these screens don't even do the game justice.

Is this game going to be available for the 360??? I keep hearing that the group "wasn't even going to touch" the next-gen area and wanted to focus on the current gens. If that is the case, my PS2 might need to get a dusting off...! This game is solid...and nothing doctored about this thing at all. It will be a pure FPS...but no multiplayer...! None at all...! I dont mind if I get a solid one player experience...ie Metal Gear Solid One for PS1!!!

Criterion also make the Burnout games, the latest of which is headed to the 360 in about 4 months.
So, they are dabbling in the new generation, but there are no reports of Black going that way, that I have seen.

Ive seen a few reports that say BLACK will be out for 360 as well.

Since this game has been in development for the original xbox one can only assume that the 360 version will be higher res and have AA.

Only time will tell....

I'm sure they could acheive that level of improvement by just making it backward compatible.
It looks like it can run at 720p on the Xbox anyway.

if no 360 vers,.. i hope for backwards compatability

Very impressive for an XBOX game. Maybe even the best graphics on the consol considering how much stuff is flying around.
Commented on 2005-12-03 00:51:15
Yeah this game is gonna kick some ass...

Game looks real nice but developers have already stated there will be barely any story or character development but who cares when you look that good.

About the game


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane That camera simply doesnt work for a game like this... and it's why I am worried I wont like the new God of War. For fuck sake, just pull the camer back a little will ya? or at least giv me the option (3 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I like the settting and all but BOY that camera is annoying and the combat seems like the bore that was called Ryse Son of Rome (which sucked!) (4 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Hellblade's gameplay looks very bland: [url] (5 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog into black goo monstrosities that hit pretty hard. it's not ornstein and smough levels of challenge obviously, and i seem to be past it now, but easily the most unforgiving start to a souls game (34 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and seems to have a pretty densely packed collection of tougher enemies really early on. be they red eye knights, whoever it is to the left of the shrine, the fat axe guy, regular enemies evolve (36 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it just feels like it it doesn't ease you in as well. just throws you in at the deep end. no "trial" boss fight, where dying is almost expected. (38 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but i've probably died more in the first 4 hours of dark souls 3 than i have in the other games combined. lol (39 minutes ago)
