One of the more popular gameplay comparisons to be bouncing around the web today is the Crysis 2 vs Killzone 3 debate. And rightfully so, the two games both in the same genre, and releasing in such close proximity to one another are sure to have consumers debating which to choose when facing a tough decision at the checkout line.
The latest comparison from Ahmad Dajani of VG Arabia details why Crysis 2 looks better than the PlayStation exclusive.
In the comparion, Dajani had this to say:
“Crysis 2 on Xbox360 is easily one of the best looking games of this generation.” Killzone 3 is linear and feel much narrower compared to Crysis 2. So you have to consider the scale of the stages in each game and the fact that Crysis 2 is rendering more stuff on screen than Killzone 3. – said Dajani.
‘Where Crysis 2 shines over Killzone 3 is in the impressive lighting technology of the Cryengine 3. Crysis 2 lighting effects are the best I have ever seen in a videogame. On top of that, Crysis 2 render more light sources than any game on the market right now. Crysis 2 is leagues beyond everything else out there.’ – he continues.
“Each game has a different anti-aliasing method to get rid of the jaggies. Killzone 3 is using a Sony exclusive solution called MLAA while Crysis 2 is implementing temporal AA. Crytek said that their solution will give better result than Sony’s MLAA solution. What I can say right now is Crytek solution is variable.”
Ultimately, “The campaign mode in Crysis 2 is more fun, much longer, and more repayable than Killzone 3 story mode.” – he concluded.
