Can't say it looks anything special. Instead it looks shit and boring.

It's an RTS. It's not too shabby for an RTS, in my opinion.

This is an RTS and I think it looks pretty good for an RTS.

Yes it looks pretty nice for an RTS, people are just to retarded to get that very vital point.

The text should be changed so it says "Sega released these images of REAL TIME STRATEGY GAME Stormrise, which is planned to be released at the end of March on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The REAL TIME STRATEGY game is developed by Creative Assembly and these images reveal the HUD."

Furthermore, graphics always look worse in screenshots when compared to seeing them in motion.

Ok, we get it, people are fuckin idiots and need to read the damn text and think a second, lets get over it though, seriously.

The visuals look great for a console RTS. Am I the only one reminded of Bionic Commando? The new full game, not the arcade or old one.

Its not an RTS, it looks like a squad tactical shooter..
RTS games (proper rts games) have base construction and top down views :P

It's a RTS, it's even mentioned as a classic RTS in the PR:

SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced the development of Stormrise™, an innovative real time strategy console title built specifically for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Stormrise marks The Creative Assembly’s first foray into developing a purpose built RTS title for console and is slated to ship in 2009.

Stormrise offers fans of the classic RTS genre an immersive and dramatic twist whilst challenging the conscience of the gamer.

The "extreme jagginess" is due to heavy post processing to create heat-effect wobble (and yes on the consoles it is difficult to combine that with proper anti aliasing techniques).

Seeing as it's the same guys who make the total war series then it will at least be a 8/10,they have made the best RTS games with that series but for now i'll stick with empire total war in march.

    Moonwalker @Sdarts: In a way you can show the difference. I made a few pics today of Forza 7 demo, Recore and Gears 4 and you can definitely see what you're missing out on wirh SDR. (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (3 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker directly compare it to SDR, holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I just checked Ghost Recon beta and Hitman, ooooh my. :) (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (17 Hours ago)
