If you are thinking of picking up Crysis 2 on either the PC or Xbox 360 in March next year, then you might want to take a look at this article we’ve found, which gives us a solid look at how the game is looking for both platforms.
The graphics comparison comes to us courtesy of German website PCGamesHardware.de, who were lucky enough to try out the game during this year’s GamesCom expo in Cologne.
Considering the fact that they were able to sample both the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game, they have put together their initial thoughts on both versions, in terms of graphical differences between the two.
While we understand that the Google translation from German into English isn’t perfect, there is no mistaking the lengths they went to, to point out that the Xbox 360 version looked far weaker, even stating that the game had been upscaled to 720p.
If you continue on reading through their report, you’ll find out that the Xbox 360 version suffers from blurry textures, rough shadows and blocky fog effects.
The good thing to note is that the GamesCom showing was probably only an early build of the game. Since the game is not due out till March next year, Crytek has plenty of time to work on all platforms of the game, making sure the console versions are on par with it’s PC counterpart.
What are your thoughts on this? You can read their full analysis here. Do you think it is too early to judge the Xbox 360 version of the game?
