ID Tech 5 vs Cry Engine 3

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
As we all know the most graphically capable and physically enabled engine so far is the Cry Engine 2, from what we saw in Crysis and Far Cry 2, but soon to be released is ID's Tech 5 engine. Crytek and id Software are both part of EA (I think) and seeing as how both the ID Tech 5 and CryEngine 3 are going to be for consoles (((mad.gif))) they will both be limited to be compatible with the PS3 and 360... but which engine do you think is overall better in terms of physics, look and generally better to play with?

Far Cry 2 didn't use the Cryengine?
Anyway I think that Cryengine 3 will still be the most advanced engine, I haven't really seen any impressive stuff made by the ID engine yet...

Oh yes Far Cry 2 used the Cry Engine 2 just like Crysis... I think these people have a love of the word "Cry"
and I think that it would be a close call for the two engines, if the Cry Engine 3 wasnt being held back for the consoles it would probably be a definite win for it

ID is not with EA, rather with Bethesda Softworks (I.E Zenimax).

Far Cry 2 used its own engine called Dunia.
Crytek had nothing at all to do with FC2.
id Software is part of Zenimax.

Cry Engine 3, without a doubt. It looks leaps and bounds better than ID Tech 5. For shame you even compare the two.

The farcry 2 engine is based on the CryEngine, but it's a heavily modified version, which they now called the dunia engine.

No, it's based on CryEngine, but heavily modified. You got it slightly mixed up. (Got this from wikipedia btw).
