Yes, if you compare just Resistance to the many available on the Xbox 360 that is what will happen.

Next up Resistance vs Gears of War 2. :lol

honestly resistance looks better in those shots, but I have a feeling Halo 3 will have MASSIVE scale if the original trailer is anything to go by...resistance is good, and some of the environments are huge, but the game is linear

He's questioning Halo so he had to know that the resident fans would get all riled up. I don't care either way.

The two games look comparable. What is the issue?

I'd have to go with Resistance on this one. It has a much more sophisticated color palette. Not every hue has to be in-your-face and hyper-saturated to be pleasing to the eye.

I seem to recall 1-up stating, a while back, that upon glimpsing a segment of single player, it was of a visual fidelity well-above the multiplayer presentation. Almost like a completely different game in a sense--literally, a warzone. So no, making comparisons with released-titles at this point doesn't really make sense.

I'm all for comparisons between titles--and resistance is a marvelous looking game. But that time will come in the fall.

Yes. I honestly think there's improvements that will make it into the retail version. Whether it's minor or major, it's going to look better. Lets not forget about the rest of the game modes, vehicles, maps, and weapons. We probably getting about 15% of what the final multiplayer experience is going to be. I do respect your opinion though.

JB was talking about the MP, not SP.

Edit: When I played 6 on 6 BTB and the game was struggling in the latency department, I thought to myself that if they added more players and spruced up the graphics even further, how in the world would the game run then?

Resistance came out how long ago? It was a LAUNCH title, how good did you expect it to look/be? Comparing it to Halo 3 which is still in development and isnt out for many months is just ridiculous.

I say we compare Halo 3 to Metroid Prime 3 :lol :lol :lol :lol

I'm not sure of notorious is the right word but he is someone that takes time and effort into delving into acres of screenshots and coming up with as near fair comparisons as he can.

But, in saying that, I'm not sure how Resistance vs HALO 3 is a fair match up in any way shape or form. Personally I would have preferred a comparison between Resistance and some better upcoming third party FPS release. Such as Battlelines, HAZE (when we get more media perhaps?) or Blacksite.

But, this thread is going to be chaos, if it isn't locked, not directly bacause of the comparisons. But I just don't think for one second that HALO 3's campaign mode is going to be some radical graphical oberhaul from the BETA that;s out now.

But as always, we shall see.

I said the graphics are not going to improve in any meaningful way. That's what I'm standing by. Didn't say that there weren't going to be new multiplayer modes.

It will still look clean, no doubt about that, that is a design choice more than anything else. But the foliage and water features that Frankie has mentioned in the updates should make the levels seem more alive, not to mention the improvements in texturing etc.

Resistance wins the better art direction award, thats for sure. Also, that Master Chief shot towards the top is supposedly one of the few Single player screenshots right? If so, this is a fair comparison.

Both games look allright, texture quality is about the same (as in: not great), but I like the Resistance models better, so thats where my vote goes

I'm not saying one is better just that one PS3 shooter game is taking on the whole armada of Xbox 360 shooters.

Stop putting Resistance a launch title out into the spotlight like this, you don't see Kameo vs Little Big Planet comparisons. :/

You do realize that a number of graphical effects have not been implemented yet? This includes increased background interactivity, shadowing effects, as well as structural and environmental elements? Your own isolated experiences with latency aside (I, for one, have not had one laggy game yet, incredibly), you're taking a giant leap in assuming there won't be any 'meaningful' visual improvements.

as far as the "bu-bu-bu one is a launch title, one is comin' 2 years later!" that is irrelevant. One is a finished game, one is a beta that is a SNAPSHOT of a single build, that had to be stabilized and tested many months before being released for general consumption. They were playing this last year. To assume that the game hasn't improved visually since (or that it won't in the months left until it goes gold) is foolish.

This would be akin to comparing Gears of War to Killzone 2 in its current, unattractive, unfinished state. It's simply not a valid comparison yet.

Obviously Resistance at least looks more technically impressive to the naked eye. However Halo has a much more unique (and in my opinion more visually appealing) aesthetic.

But when it comes to the way they play, there is absolutely no comparison: Halo wins. I was terribly disappointed in Resistance. I never even finished it (even though I forced myself to plod over half way through the single player campaign).

I expected a lot more from Insomniac, who is one of my favorite developers. Hopefully R&C will be a true return to form.

There's not really much to discuss, so I guess I'm wondering why you posted this comparison, if not to start some fan-monkey pooh slinging.
