Even Unigine? Several games are being based on that.

Okay. So it'll look good. But, will it actually BE any good? I just hope that they put some of this brain power into developing an actually good story line this time not to mention actual game play.
I'm not spending a penny on any more games where the reviews ignore content while overhyping how good it looks. Sorta like the movie "Avatar." It was beautiful, yeah. But in the end the story-like content totally sucked.

Vastly yes. Unreal 3 uses effective but "cheap" rendering tactics compared to Cryengine 2/3. Cryengine can support way bigger levels, much more accurate physics, Crysis showcases only a small part of the cryengines potential. As someone who has been using the cryengine since far cry came out, I know this to be true.


UE3 = more simple, efficient graphics

Cryengine 2/3 = Will eat as much hardware as you can throw at it and do more in the process.

I don't entirely see how that makes it "better". If I were a developer, I'd be looking for something...
A. ...A lot of developers know and understand.
B. ...that's simple to pick up and learn from the BEGINNING.
C. ...that has adequate graphics.
D. ...that ports over to as many consoles as possible.
E. ...has well-made toolsets for asset creation.

Unreal Engine 3 satisfies all of those. CryEngine 3 gets C and D, but I don't know about the others.

CE3 easily has all but A (as it is new). Check out this video on how easy it is to develop on CryEngine 3:


You can develop within the game itself, which is Crytek's whole "what you see is what you play" thing. It's a massive time saver, and simplifies everything.

Also, do you see how it develops for all three platforms simultaneously? The PC gets the raw "pure" version, while the engine scales itself to the needs of the 2 consoles. In other words, NO MORE PORTS!!! This is why every PC gamer should support CE3!

They even said this specifically in a different article; that they were able to pour more funds into this engine/game as a direct result of their anticipated financial gain by releasing it on all 3 major gaming platforms.

Rag on consoles all you want, but they are where the majority of the monies at. As long as they don't pull an Activision I don't see it as a bad thing. They're a good company with a lot of potential, it'll be nice to see where they go from here now that they've established a strong revenue stream.

I have yet to see a game look as good as Crysis, Metro 2033 comes close, but it should come as no surprise to anyone that Crysis can only run on the Crysis Engine. Put that much geometry and Lighting FX into Unreal Engine and whatch your computer burn. UE4 may be a different story, but even the updated showcase of the Unreal Engine 3 refresh doesn't hold a candle to Crysis 1, and we're talking about Crysis 2 on the successor to the engine that powered 1.

I don't think Crysis 2 will be a good game to judge the full potential of Cryengine 3.
The reason Crysis 1 was so demanding is having to render acres of trees and open ended gameplay. Crysis 2 only has to render a city block which isn't really that demanding.

Crysis 2 may have super duper engine, but in order for it run on crapsoles, they dumbed down the environment so it only has to render a 1 way city street with cutscenes on every corner.

Because we all know, crapsole peasant' IQ is so miniscule they are too dumb to find their way in an open ended world, they have to play games where there is just 1 huge linear path with huge arrows pointing toward objectives on the screen.

Too bad that the MP beta sucks on the 360... I'll still be getting it as I wasn't planning on getting this game for its MP content, but that's still a small shame
