Much, much better. :)

I still think I picture the Shadowrun world to have more uh, ... shadows. But it's a good start.

....I just...don't like the whole idea of the game, and the character design is awfull....

In a gaming world, where HalfLife2/Fear have been out for months and months, and being ported over to 360, and other games coming down the pipe, like Kane&Lynch, Splinter Cell, Halo 3, Gears of War etc. looking much better than this. I see this title being the 360's Brute Force.

I know gameplay, gameplay, but I think it looks a bit lackluster still. It looks like an upgraded PDZ engine, and not in a good way.

I hope they can pull of the PC/360 interplayability, and get a solid title out there, but based on visuals it is not shaping up in the graphics dept. compared to other titles that will be coming next year.

The difference is that this game isn't aiming for a realistic look. It doesn't look great but it is by no means a technically crap looking game.

You know, the video and gameplay they showed at E3 didnt look all that good, this, like rupbert said, is a huge improvement in graphics. But yea, I personally have some mixed thoughts about this title, althought now i can put away the graphic portion the game because now its actually starting to look good =D

oooo when this comeing out?
Commented on 2006-09-15 19:46:13
WAY better looking. But that elfish guy does seem disproportioned...

I'm still interested in this game from the perspective of being able to play between 360 and PC gamers, and seeing how well that turns out.

Looks better, but still disappointed they made it FPS.

Should have been a MMO third person RPG.

this is an AMAZING improvement on the e3 showing i see now why the game was delayed, and from what i've heard the cross platform multiplayer is WICKED.

Now that the graphics are smoothed out i hope they get the "magic effects" or whatever they were also smoothed out and sexified

40xAA nice bullshots :D
Commented on 2006-09-15 20:10:22
Damn, looks about 40x better to me. Yes, they could have added excess AA for the screenshots, but they obviously improved other things.
Commented on 2006-09-15 21:06:53
wow, huge improvement, looks like totally different game

Yeah, it's kinda dissapointing it's an fps. I think there's enough fps-s coming for 360.
But online? Nah that sucks. Make it a singleplayer experience, same as the old ones.
Commented on 2006-09-15 21:43:14
wtf is this? Looks like Lord of the Rings meets Halo.

It looks much better, BUT compare this to Unreal Tourney 2007 or Gears, and it comes up very short.

It more of artistic way-of-looking-better, since Unreal 3.0 doesn't support tilebasedrendering, that way no AA with Xenos.

5th screen: "See the future: RNA", "Your potential is our passion", it's in a strange portuguese ("nosso"=>"nossa") with some french ("est"=>"é"=>"is"). Any guess why?

The only reason that people are tired of first person shooters, is because the developers aren't really doing anything new with the gameplay. Most of the fps' feel like a floating gun in space. You shoot first and never ask questions until you get to the next checkpoint. I wish someone would make a fps that has total awareness. I would like to draw my gun when the time is right. Nobody in real life could walk around holding a thirty pound weapon and never dropping it below the belt. And when I'm out of bullets, I should be able to put up my dukes and go Chronicles of Riddick style on my enemies seamlessly. Oh, and one more thing; I'd like to see my characters hand grab the door to open it and not use unmentioned tele kenesis powers that my character doesn't have. Oblivion, Half life....... FPS is the perspective and doesn't neccessarily command the gameplay mechanics. So much more could be done.

Well its not like it's a graphical wonder.

Look like downscaled bullshots to me. Not to be trusted imo.

But, a three generation leap from the Quake2 engined fiasko they were showing at E3.
