Trees are looking awful. DOA4's environments were incredible.

Environments are extremely lacking in this game, not just the trees.

Yeah DOA4 environments are far better but SC IV has far better character models.

My god. With the online feature, the only thing they need is: A LOT MORE CRAZY CREATION STUFF!!! Not to mention faces and hair styles...

Is kilik and maxi gone??

I wish they retained the first look of astaroth from the first game, bald guy with white eyes and the red gem on his chest. That was an awesome character design

game looks good

Are some of you blind? This is the best looking SC game so far. It looks fantastic!
DOA4 looks too clean and bland IMO

They're revealing more characters as they go along.

why are the colors so washed out? it needs to be a bit more colorful and bold. other than that, it looks great. i like the character models a lot this time around. need more boobs
Commented on 2007-09-27 19:50:17
looks like that with this gen of consoles they can create even bigger boobs hahaha

I think this game looks sooo good. The characters are really great looking. I agree the environments aren't super detailed, but that doesn't really matter much to me in a fighting game.

The colors seem fine to me, nowhere near as bland as Gears (which took it way too far).

If those are true IN GAME graphics up top- count me in as speechless.

'cause DAMN- that looks amazing!

their use of reflective materials is really amazing, though to some it might seem like the models are jagged but those are jagges in the reflections.
The character models are really top notch too.

and i dont think those are figures:

that black smoke is impossible on a figurine, or it some kind of compositing

He looks like a damn crystal with arms and legs.

I think the images look quite good, if this runs at 60fps, I would deem it amazing.

I'm certain these are real time graphics, because if you look at the shots from a technical standpoint, you can see they're easily possible.

Based on the shots :

#1. No self shadowing. DOA4 didn't have it, but tons of other games do, including VF5 on PS3.

#2. Aliasing is visible, doesn't look like these are renders.

#3. Polygonal edges, meaning they're not using CG models.

#4. Simple backgrounds.

#5. Reflection maps that are obviously not raytraced (which would give away renders).

#6. Simple lighting. Looks like 'fringe' lighting you see in Super Paper Mario and Jade Empire, not technically stressful to do these days. There's not even dynamic flares of lighting (even VF5 has them).

Not putting down the game, just pointing out the factors which make it obvious the game will actually look this good.

The backgrounds need a lot of work.

I am not sure what is going on with the blur either.

Jigen is smart.
Also too much emphasis on boobs.

I like this game a lot. The grafx really improved since I last saw screens. Hilde looks incredibly good, very cool design. Well, Siegfried has become too much feminine, but well, it's not THAT bad. Can't wait to play this game. Hope there will be a Quest modus, was fun in SC3.
