Superb. The first piece of actual gameplay had me worried but it was a pretty featureless street, when it gets to the rooftop ambush my jaw dropped and then came the chopper ride! :)

Ok, there's two things I dont like about this game, and im very sad because I like the gameplay.
1.Low res textures. Why, if you are gonna see you as a soldier most of the times, the backpack or whatever is a low res texture???. What happened to the shinny detailed weapons?, There's a little scene that shows it (the one you hold) and it looks terrible.
2. The colors. I know its probably just that they wanna use sephia just like in NFSMW to add more strenght to the missions, BUT IT LOOKS TERRIBLE TOO!

This is just my opinion, and by no means I wanna override what anyone thinks about this game.

You aren't gonna see high res textures in a compressed 640x360 video.

you can still tell if it is or not
Commented on 2006-01-12 20:04:23
No you can't tell :P

It's easy to notice that the graphics simply dont look near as good as first, check this out

I can't see the movie since I'm at work, but if the quality looks anything like the pictures, then that's just terrible. The picture you linked is a high resolution picture. The pictures above have lost so much detail is unbelievable. not to mention that they aren't even clear. I know I saw gameplay sometime back that looked great. I'll take a look at this when I get home.

Ignorant statement.
Kids... when will you understand that what you think is not what I think or what anyone thinks. Or that whats true to you its false to others.

What happened was they captured a video of that game and compressed the size so it wasn't obtrusively huge for people to download.

Good question...why did they delay this game if its still not worthy of the E3 video? You see games like Gears of War that truely look next-generation, while this game looks like a Ghost Recon 2.5...

Looks fantastic.Love the open city environments though I do hope we some some nice forest areas as well, at least for multiplayer.

You can't really tell any texture detail from a small low quality compressed video, I suggest waiting untill they release a nice HD video or some new high res screens.

To me it looks less impressive than the Point of no return footage.
That footage showed alot of nice details in the environments and the soldiers..what happened. It looks way too blurry and low textured.

Look what happens when you reduce the size, wash out the colours and save it as a JPEG.

^ But also the footage? Come on, it's true about the shots..but also the video footage still looks low textured to me.

The shots are CAPTURES that are automatically taken from the footage

The video has been compressed and blurred due to the compression, you can't tell how sharp the textures will be in the actual game from that.

If you are talking about the screenshots on the top of the page, those are automatically generated from the video, they will look just as blurred and compressed as the video.

hmmm ok...that makes sense. I just wonder about something else now...

check out the ingame footage, and then at 0:01:19 check it...it looks like a whole different game, check those graphics...VERY good, kinda strange.

Same here. Im not feeling this game Like i use to when I first saw the footage way back around the E3. They delayed it cuz they wanted to really utilize the power of the 360, but I dont see ne difference. We'll just have to wait n see.

Looks like in-game news report style footage with the shaky camera movement and DOF, the gameplay footage on the roof looks better imho with an awesome sense of scale.

looks all right. the cut scenes should be what the in game graphics look like. the problem is the devs are using old methods to make there games. i cant wait till we get a real nextgen game. something that looks like warbirds or project offset in real time.

I don't even need to come up with a rebuttal to this since Slabs has saved me the trouble.
