I'd call bullshots but after seeing this:

I'm pretty sure this is very close to the real thing.

It's too bad the actual game has no anti-aliasing and is severely hurt by a huge amount of jaggies.
Commented on 2010-01-27 14:29:09
Thats why I will be playing the PC version :) Cant wait, the game is gonna be great.

I'm hoping to get into the beta. THough I normally buy on Steam, as I did with ME2, PC version is retailing at 27.99 but 34.99 on steam. bit of a difference, when really shouldn't it be lower or parity.

On the pc you can force AA to what you want I believe.

oh my god im seriously SERIOUSLY tired of people talking about jaggies wtf, jaggies the game is BEAUTIFUL, its gameplay is SUPERB, and your whining about... JAGGIES< what are you doing pausing the game to look at it?

JUST PLAY THE GAME AND ENJOY ITS AWESOMENESS, or if you really want antialiasing, GET A GOOD PC

Whoa, Halo Reach had better be good....Bungie has some seriously stiff competition on their hands. It won't look good for Bungie if older games look and play better than the game that reinvented the genre itself. 'Older game' meaning that Halo Reach will be released at the end of the year while the competition comes out first.

It's kind of depressing to see people getting hung up on the flaws all the time rather than embrace the fact that this will probably be one of the better-looking war-based shooters out there. With hours on the PS3 beta under my belt, Modern Warfare's got nothing on this. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is superior in both graphics and gameplay.

As for the PC version, I'm not a PC gamer, so I wouldn't know anything about that, hence my silence on the matter.

Well the beta on PS3 sure didn't look nearly that good, but the single player video of that jugle level did look pretty amazing.

The game won't look quite this good, especially on PS3 and 360, but it's still a good looking game.

Now if they could just fix the damn gameplay...

The beta on the ps3 was superb it has to be said. I'm not a major fps player but I kept coming back to the beta, time and time again. Many times, people were actually working together and it felt like a group effort. The vehicles do promote some teamwork.
Good fun. Can't wait for the release, regardless of platform.

the last shot takes a big dump on fl0wer almost making it look like a last-gen title.
Commented on 2010-01-27 17:21:48
@morobushi: What does it matter that the game doesn't have AA if you don't notice it doesn't have it??? Or are these screens taken from the PC version?

The game looks fantastic. For those thinking it won't look so good on PS3 or 360, you'd do well to know that one of the better looking multiplayer gameplay videos is straight from the 360 version, Panama Canal.
Commented on 2010-01-27 18:40:28
That linked youtube -video seems to be from a 360 version as well. Looking good and already preordered.
Commented on 2010-01-27 19:00:24
Yes this game looks good quite comparable to COD MW2 I guess :P
Commented on 2010-01-27 19:27:02
great textures in the clothes and the environments look massive!
can't wait to get into some new fatigues... call of duty became mundane, with all the boosters, cheaters, and having to mute all the annoying headsets.

Screenshots of the beta menu suggest that AA is an option. I'm not sure why people would assume otherwise. This isn't Unreal Engine 3 after all.

The console game is quite jaggy-riffic, but it still looks pretty damn good.

yeah, but the game is running huge maps, everything destructable, amazing surround sound with great fx (reverbs etc.) processed realtime etc etc, and albeit the not so high AA, looks incredible.
So maybe we can cut them some slack?

The original game had aweful muffled sound. Is this game is going to be better?

Just based on videos from the PS3 beta, I think it has some of the most impressive sound effects in a shooter ever.

Ever!

I agree about the sound. Say what you will about all the other aspects of the game, when you play this through a good surround sound system it sounds fantastic. Like GriftGFX said, probably the best in any shooter I've heard.

Though Vegas still has the best gun sounds of any shooter. No other game uses a sub woofer nearly as good as Vegas does in the sound of gun shots. That game REALLY makes firing a gun sound intense with the proper sound system.

I really wish more games put as much "oomph" behind their gun sounds as Vegas does. But other than that, BC2 has the crown for all around amazing sounds, especially the surround sound aspects of distant explosions and gun shots.

The fact that you can hear the acoustics change when you enter a building is pretty amazing.
