Actually - I said the same thing earlier but the more and more I think about it - the more and more stupid that sounds because as the above posters said, its Oblivion. It doesn't look all that impressive, sub-par really.

Sorry but, theres a major difference between the two. You said yourself that you haven't 'touched your 360 in a year an a half', so you have to play it to appreciate it - Screenshots don't do it justice, although you can still see a huge difference... Heres a graphics comparison: http://www.gametrailers.com/player/33774.html


Note: Fallout 3 is a high resolution Oblivion
Im sorry, but I see no difference in any of those videos except a change of art style. Discovery that Hdr makes anything look good even though it was in the first. The first had this ugly purply-red look to it and texture quality is basically the same the only thing is that they found out how to get more ai out of an xbox 360 to get more locust on screen. I've played both I thought Gow was ugly as s**t with the shaders and Gow2 was a nice deviation from shader rape, but the graphics quality Isn't much different apply Gow2 shaders to Gow and you will have the same quality, except some textures may not be up to the new "look"

Also if you think of it all gamespy is mostly console oriented unless any of you people use their horrible game browser/download service. So if they suddenly say No Crysis Warhead is the best looking game this year everyone will flip. In layman terms some amazing looking guy coming up out of nowhere and snatching your girlfriend.

Holy contradiction batman

The art-style is the same, do you understand what that means? It has to be the same in order for it to be a sequel to the first.

Destroyed vistas, saturated haze from the war torn human cities - If you don't understand why it looks a certain way, then you don't understand what motifs and art is.

But you're out your flipping mind if you think Crysis isn't more open ended then Gears 2. Infact, any other game for that matter that isn't open world. In Crysis, you choose how you want to get to the objective and complete the objective. Other games, you can rarely ever do that and if you can it is only to a certain extent.

But then again - this has nothing to do with graphics so why you brought this up I will never begin to understand.
I said Linear because its meant to be an open ended game but it ends up not being really open ended... And I was mainly comparing the Graphics, Crysis was just a tropical island, always the same kind of scenery, Gears of War, you have Caves, Cities, Flying on the back of a monster thing, On the back of a moving fortress, in a helicopter, etc.

I dont understand how ANYONE can say fallout 3 had good graphics. It was oblivion re skinned. It was still a great game, but the graphics were just sub par.

If someone hasn't mentioned it yet, I believe it's because they see Warhead as more of a stand alone expansion or something.

One of my favorites when it comes to graphics is Alone in the Dark. Crank up the settings to the highest possible, max the Anti Aliasing as well as Physx... oh *****, that is a really an amazing looking game. Some of the sequences really looks like in real life.
