Crysis 2 Xbox 360 vs PC comparison

We've pulled screenshots from the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Crysis 2. Have a look.

Just installed it, had a look at the first bit as i've not got much time to play, only playing at 1680 but should have a 1920 monitor soon.... all i have to say is that it doesnt look any better than crysis 1, maybe a little worse

maxing this easy with my rig [5850 + 920 at 1920x1200].. FOV set to 75, AA at 4.
There is no DX10 or 11

Looks nothing close to Crysis 1

lol, at least one PC can run Crysis 2? My 9800GTX+ averages around 22-30fps with the highest settings, even that is smooth (not jerky), Once I enable SLI with the proper profile it nearly doubles, and that's with 4xAA enabled.

I expect a 260 or anything above should be able to handle the DX9 version

I think that Avermedia 727 HD Capture card is suspect, the images are a little blurry.

No, that's really what it looks like. Come down to the labs and I'll show you on Monday.

I was about to rage and ask WHY WOULD YOU TAKE THE 360 SCREENSHOTS WITH A CAMERA.. Then I realized how much better games are on the PC.

APART FROM the dodgy upscaling from some obscenely low resolution, the difference isn't as night-and-day as I expected.

Certainly not from those screenshots anyway.

it just makes it look worse when you compare extreme and the 360. what about the ps3 screens?

Those comparison screenshots are a bit unfair tbh - you upscaled to 1600p (1440p), a resolution very very few people are going to game on with an Xbox. A comparison of 1080p shots would have been fairer imo. Of course the pc would still be superior, but the blurryness would not have been quite as bad.

The 360 compared to extreme is a major difference IMHO

360 is massively different to all three PC presets to me. I can't see a massive change in quality between the PC presets though.

Shock Horror: Recent PC Graphics Better Than Five-Year-Old Console!
Coming up after the break: Men are different from women.


So, joking aside, is it fairly safe to say that Crysis 2 isn't as much of a push forward in graphics engine technology as the original - and that a reasonably recent PC will be able to run it without any major problems?

What will all those people whose first response is "...but will it run Crysis" be able to say now?

I was really looking forward to installing it tonight, however bloody Amazon failed to deliver. This is the last time I pre-order from Amazon. Game on the other hand is always spot-on with deliveries (sometimes a day before release )

Never make the mistake of pre-ordering from Amazon. (Call me old-fashioned, but I don't prefer digital downloads)

It could be potentially it's more optimised than the original, if the levels weren't designed for consoles in mind then who knows what it could achieve.

I wonder what the original would run like with the new engine

"But can you configure Crysis?"

Or maybe all game reviews should have at least one comment "do you have to press start to continue?"
