Side by Side comparison: Crysis 2 vs Crysis 1 *FIXED IMAGES*

post #1 of 320
Thread Starter 
ALL SCREEN SHOTS ARE MINE, NONE CAME FROM THE NET, I WANT THAT TO BE CLEAR AND YES I AM USING A TEXTURE MOD AND A TOD MOD
Mods: Plompi's TOD/ Rygel's texture pack
Maps: crysis 2 forest, gdc06 (remake version), island, rescue

I was reading a thread on here and as everyone has noticed there has been alot of complaining about whether Crysis 2 visually has been up to par. One person said that if you put crysis and crysis 2 side by side that you would see that crysis 2 was obviously much better looking then the first crysis so this is what I did. There are going to be MANY screenshots so you don't have to look at every single one of them. But I am trying my best to compare the two(vertically), and yes I am using a modded version of the first Crysis. Crysis 2 is put on hardcore settings.

Conclusion

I am sure that I will be flamed and criticized but I was also very excited about Crysis 2. I wanted crysis 2 to blow away the first one, I wanted it to be epic in both gameplay and visually. But I am sorry to say that it just wasn't impressive, the graphics are terrible and dx11 is not going to change that. People that say this is just a demo look when the release is... very soon you think they have time to change how the game looks in just a few weeks? I work with programs like maya and have experience in java, you can't just change things like that in a few weeks. This is the way the game looks end of story. The textures are low res, the lighting sucks, and it is dull and boring with poor detail. Anyone who says crysis 2 looks better is just in denial. Just because crytek says it is going to look better doesn't mean it is, they want you to believe that so you will buy the game so they make money.

I agree completely. While it does not look 'bad', it does not represent the graphical quality that seems to be synonymous with Crysis.

Maybe it's just me... but Crysis 1 looks NOTICEABLY better. The textures seem to be much higher resolution.
post #8 of 320
Definitely agreed. What I do hope for is advanced settings when the game comes out instead of just "hardcore". Hopefully people will mod the game to look better. I am very disappointed with the graphics, but there's still hope for modders! Just think to yourself this is just the WORST crysis 2 can look and it can only get better from here.

Most likely would be a good idea to get stock Crysis screenshots to match them up with stock Crysis 2 Demo. I would if I had a Crysis CD laying around.

i think some of the screen shots you took off the net have been modded with third party mods to make it look better
