Far Cry PC vs 360 video

Far Cry PC vs 360 video

Here is a very interesting video comparing the water in Far Cry PC version (maximum detail) versus the Xbox 360 Far Cry Instincts Predator version. I have no idea where this video comes from, so take it with a grain of salt.
Update : I've just been told that this video was released by one of the FCI predator developers, originally only for internal usage at Ubisoft.

That's true, but how much does a PC that can run it (with HDR too) with full details still cost?

well a pc that could render the 360 graphics would indeed cost you a bomb of money,my pc cost 4000 euro and it cant even perform the operations the 360 can

i cant wait to see the blood disperce in that water...1 of the really cool effects in farcry


WILL HE EVER GET OFF THAT ISLAND!

It's just funny to see how many graphics whores there are out there. Before this vid, everyone was saying how this game sucked, had average graphics, how its a crappy port of an Xbox 1 game, and how they would never spend a dime on this. Then after watching this video, everyone's just drooling over this game and saying that it's on their must-bye list.

All because of the pretty little water effects.

LOL, you people are just too funny.

well thats why we spent 400 on a 360

im proud to be a graphics whore as you say...i like being impressed

Well, as with lots of other Xbox 360 games, it just looks better in motion than in screenshots. Except PDZ :D

:) I always appreciate a good jab at PDZ..heh

Bit of a flawed comparison as others have pointed out, but I always thought this looked pretty decent..not mind blowing or anything, but certainly a big leap over instincts.

I never did get to play the original Xbox game, but I heard pretty much good things all around about the MP--here's hoping this expands on that a little and is just as popular on live.

I think it should applause all round for the 360.
Bravo

i actually would of prefered an comparision with instincts....

the water in instincts looked great but the collision dection with falling bodies and your own body was bad...also 1 effect i have already mentioned was the blood in the water...ha i always loved that 1

the xbox 360 version looks amazing - wow. hope its real ingame if it is just another wow.
Commented on 2006-02-11 14:11:35
Holy shit that looks amazing, I was gonna get it anyway (can't resist a 2 for 1 offer!) but that just sent the haters to hell!

Now Criterion need to do a Revenge comparison between XBox and 360! ;)

Well, that's fine for you, but some of us like to appreciate the less superficial, more substantive parts of videogames.

Well Far Cry Instincts was already a great game on the XBox, now they upgraded the superficial elements aswell! Think of an intelligent pretty girl with a broken nose getting it fixed? :P

Far Cry on Xbox was crap in my book. Well, it wasn't crap, but the gameplay was just like any other straightforward, mediocre shooter out there. Linear level paths, stupid AI, nil difficulty. As a game, it just butchered the original PC version. The multiplayer was alright though.

Why is appreciating the aesthetics of a video game superficial? Some people are just more visually inclined than others, making graphics (in addition to gameplay) a big part of immersing oneself into the game. The better the graphics, the better the immersion for some people. Don't think that just because you don't care about graphics that you are somehow more enlightened than everyone else.

Dude... you can't buy girls.

lol

I wasn't impressed graphically by this game before.. but those water effects are pretty awesome - virging on full realism. Still, its a Farcry game... it'll be fun.

1 nice water shader does NOT make it a better game.

Well that could be argued, better graphics = better game, considering graphics play a big part of a game.

Sitting and watching a blank screen isn't very fun is it.
