Trailer of NHL 07

Trailer of NHL 07

EA Sports released this very impressive trailer of NHL 07, looking really, really great. That is some heavy AA, I tell you. I first thought it was CG and all, but the newly released X360 images really look like that. I had no idea it could look so good - the shadows and everything - in motion. With no Playstation 3 version announced, I take it's from the X360 version.

Yeah, I guess it looks too good. On the other hand, I don't think the previous games have had any FMV videos, but I could be wrong (last game I bought was NHL 04). It could be a CG"using in-game-textures"-sort of thing.

On the other hand, I remember how Madden blew us away (not talking about the first CG videos). This is the same thing - NHL last year was nowhere near next-gen. This is, hopefully.

Well if its CG then it's cheap CG. If it's in-game (which I think is very possible), then it's about time they pushed up the graphics a notch for NHL!

IGN said it is in game footage :)

probably is CG because they dont say "in-game gfx" anywhere before the video or anything. Im sick of trying to figure out if things are CG or in-game. CG shit should be banned from games altogether. Lately, its all developers use to show their games.

tbh i think all us know the 360 can pull off IN GAME gfx like this sooner or later so why not now? lol

nice stick bend... good physics! Did I actually see the puck wobble too? I hope [sigh] that is true in game. If so, this will be the first year I don't buy NHL for the pc....

Didn't Luongo just get traded? hehehe change that trailer!

:O man that really does look fantastic. Damn too bad i prefer the 2K hockey games. Maybe i'll break the mold just once, heheh

eh that is definitely in game. it doesn't look nearly good enough to be CG.

these trailers do nothing for me though. it's like all of the EA commercials. they all show these stupid angles that we will never see in the game except the first time we play when replays look cool, before we start skipping them every time they show them.

show me some in game gameplay footage to get me to actually care about it. and that doesn't just go for this game, that is in general. im sick of these trailers that don't give us any idea of how the gameplay graphics will be presented to us.

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (12 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (12 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (13 Hours ago)
