9 Black images

9 Black images

Electronic Arts released these 3 artworks and 6 images (or should I say renders?) of Black. Still it's very impressive for a PS2/Xbox game.

This game looks alright, i recently saw new footage of it and it didnt look quite that good as the screens, but that was only one level, and it was outdoors with nothing much to destroy. It was in the forest near a camp, i believe.

the last 3 look like concept art,.. and the screens should be 640x480 for an xbox game, but whatever it looks pretty good

The amount of destruction in the game was astounding though! Imagine that with the 360 hardware now :)!

i'd say the graphics will be that good...its just going to be lower res than those screens, so everything won't be as sharp..
its all looking very good though, a lot of fun

1up have coverage of it on the latest 1up show and it looks great in motion but has that fuzzy look to it like all xbox games have after playing in 720p :-)

Well, keep some of those fingers crossed for out of the box backwards compatibility on the 360 and it should actually look that sharp.
Commented on 2005-12-28 12:59:07
yeah, sure hope its BC on the 360.

Nothing excites me about this game

Simply the best looking Xbox game to date, I can not stress how incredible this game is graphically, if you are not impressed you are simply jaded.

Lets hope the game play can match the graphic engine.

uhh, yeah.... that is definitely NOT what the game is really going to look like on your television. i'm so tired of crap like this being released to the gullible masses. it's unfair to people who get caught up in it... drop it down to about a quarter of that resolution and take away the 16x anti-aliasing and maybe..

^^ I saw a video of it on gamespot the other day and it looked BETTER than these screenshots they are showing..

I think this game is gonna kickass...

I think this game is a waste for current gen. I also don't like how everything has to explode, they shoot some boxes and they all happen to have some explosives in there, just not good. A little too over the top, F.E.A.R. for PC for example was over the top, but controlled, this is just too much.

Well obviously some of the pics shown are concept art and "YOU" would have to be pretty stupid to believe people will think the concept art is going to be the graphics of the game! There will be stupid people like that but none that i have seen on these messages other than yourself.

Are you serious? Damn...developers can't win I swear. People complain when its NOT over the top, and then they also complain when it IS over the top...after all, it is a video game, and video games are supposed to be FUN. I think all the explosions and stuff is great because it shows that the current-gen consoles aren't dead yet either...

No foo, I even gave an example of over the top done right. Things that should explode should explode. Why does a tiny little box has to explode? Oh yeah, 'cause it's much easier to do that than actually give it some physics and make it deform/move realistically. The game shows good graphics, but to me, it just tells me current gen consoles are basically dead.

Many things this game does seem like cheap little tricks that only hint at what could be possible next gen.

Over the top means that things do stuff they shouldn't.. so yes that little box WILL explode... bottom line is that you (LEBATO) seem to only like a small number of games and if one is not to your specific tasts then you dislike it... (which is totally fine). It is just a Burnout with guns.. which that game was awesome yet still "over the top" just like this game...

LEBATO: Ummmmm... the game is over-the-top and unrealistic? That's the WHOLE FREAKING POINT! Ever play Burnout?

i think this game looks great,i'd say on the ps2 the FR will be a disaster,but xbox shud show it nicely,it just shows theres alot of life left in the big black box of joy

This is from the makers of Burnout. How can it not be good? For xbox that looks rather impressive...
Commented on 2005-12-30 02:03:43
Yeah its from the makers of Burnout...so of course its going to be over the top.

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (3 Hours ago)
