These are some picture comparisons between the different game platforms and I have added some of my opinions of what I think of the differences between them and whether or not it really matters.
From this image the game seems good on the PlayStation 3 with darker colours and nice water effects. It feels more authentic to what Chrysis should be.
This image makes the game on the Xbox 360 seems more brighter but with greener and brown colours. This isn’t really a good image when the game actually looks a lot better. It reminds me of Fallout 3.
This is a picture I took of the PC version. The visuals, lighting and everything else is better but that is what you would expect from a PC game.
I havent played the PS3 version but I have played the Xbox 360 and PC version and from my experience it comes down to three factors which game visuals don’t affect.
- First factor
Your game version choice will depend on what console you have, if you have both get the game on the console you care for or play mostly on. If you have only a PC then get that version as long as you can play it.
- Second factor
If you have a PC capable of playing Crysis 2 and a console, play the PC version for the visuals but play the console version if your more interested in multiplayer, familiar controls (If you been playing Call of Duty or Halo a lot) or the achievements.
- Third factor
Who cares about the visuals anyway it’s the gameplay and the fun you have which is important. These things will keep you playing at the end of the day.
When Crysis 2 finally comes out I’m sure most people complaints or worries will be taken care of, people are over reacting. Games shouldn’t be judged on pre release builds or demos. Demos should be used to get an idea about the game but not what the final version will look like or play like. Games can change a lot in a short period of time. When people get access to early releases of video games whether illegally or from the developers themselves these versions can still change a lot before the release date. Especially with the rise of digital video games.
