CryEngine 3 vs CryEngine 2 [Video]

A Forum Thread for Crysis

Features of the CryEngine 3 running on Xbox 360 and Play Station 3 hardware are compared and contrasted to features of the CryEngine 2 running on the PC platform.

That seems to be a great optimization, especially I liked these props, appearing on close. So what opinions do you have about that?

    I hope the graphics of the PC version of Crysis 2 won't be affected by the dumb console ports.

    Most of that was WRONG. The comparison with the vegetation moving with the rocket (which was actually a grenade launcher round) was completely wrong. It says that on CE3 'only the stuff it hits is affected' and on CE2, 'a little bit of near-by vegetation' is displaced. I'm not sure if this guy even watched the video he was commenting on, because on CE3, more of the leaves moved when fired on. The only difference was that on CE2, the tree moved very slightly. It's obvious that they were fired at different angles which would've caused this. And this guy is obviously one of the extreme-douches that fanboy the PC and the PC ONLY. The whole idea of CryEngine3 was to optimise it and make it useable on a console. It looks virtually the same, and runs the same, but you don't need a £4 billion PC to play it on the highest settings at more than 3fps! It's a technical miracle that they managed to optimise it that well! And he seems to have left out the bits of the original comparison video that showed how smoke effects, volumetric clouds and lighting is better in CE3...

    A PS3 yes, but I also have a pretty decent PC! I just get frustrated with assholes who don't understand simple things like the company wanting to branch out more, and the fact that they managed to optimised the engine so much! The massive complaint with Crysis was always that it required too much horsepower. Now, they've reduced its requirements, and made it available to consoles as well. The game still looks much better than everything else out there, so why is he complaining about small details that NO-ONE ELSE noticed?? *sigh*

    True. You'll always have people comparing everything though. And I think it is kinda fun/informative to watch. Even though I don't care about the game. Neither do I care on which platform it looks better at. Though since I'm die hard PC gamer, of course it makes me more happy inside my cock

    I did an article over the CryEngine 3 back in March, analyzing the potential of this engine, now with the CryEngine 3, from what I've heard from several people who are in the gaming business, was made specifically for consoles, but CryEngine 2 still cannot be matched for there are people who still can't play it at full max settings, even today, I had to wait 2 years to actually play this game. To best to describe the CryEngine 2 it's still ahead of its time and the potential is still ever growing as we continue to develop better graphic engines, dx11 opengl3 will possibly give us a deeper look into the well, as we slowly turn the crank giving us a clean cold drink.

    Hurr, who's complaining? He was settling an argument. Just because he got a couple facts wrong doesn't mean he's favoring PC. The "fan boy" accusations are getting a little old.

    That's actually an interesting video. Now if only they would release a patch or something where we PC users can utilize that sort of engine work for our Crysis/Warhead's. Don't even say it wouldn't be possible either - just before someone tells me so. I understand it would be a big ass download, but seriously - have you ever played MoH:Airborne and tried to update it? You're looking at over 4gb of patches right there just to play some mediocre game that hit the bargain bins almost a half a year to a year after it released. So Crytek could be nice enough to release a few tweaks for their CryEngine2. They've done it once before for FarCry with 64-bit users

    There's a difference between 'optimizing' and 'dumbing' the graphics. I gather they reduced the texture size rather than actually changing the code and making the engine more lightweight. Hopefully, high-resolution textures will still be available for the PC version of the game.

    I agree completely. I hope that they keep the CryEngine 2 for all PC releases and CryEngine 3 for all the console games. That way the PC games would not suffer from consoles, which seems to be the ever increasing trend now a days. The ONLY thing good about the CryEngine 3 from what I saw was the complete removal of motion blur, dev's need to learn that motion blur is amazingly unrealistic and a total leach on FPS and therefore should not be included in their games, or at least let the players turn it off via the options.

    +1, I hate motion blur, now-a-days, it's abused to the most extreme limit. Motion blur is good and some-what more graphically enhancing - But it's over-done and looks terrible, if at all anything, motion blur should be applied on things that are moving at a Blazing rate and not just a small flick of the head... It makes it look like a movie transition... Of which it should never, ever, EVER look like... Other than the removal of the blur feature, the game is looking good for a Console - Especially since both consoles have 500 MB on the graphics card(I know the specifications of both consoles, WOOT 4 being a Geek), the Playstation - 3 only has 50 MB more than the XBox360, which is a small amount in my opinion compared to the latest card's that are being released now-a-days(I got a 1 GB Nvidia Gforce 9800GT! and that's probably 2 years old!) Personally, if Cry-Tek are going to go and develop a Crysis for the consoles, then I'm pretty sure were nearing the edge of man-kinds destruction - Crysis should be a PC exclusive, because gamers will want to experience it to the maximum... But? On a console? That's preposterously insane, who'd want to experience a 2 year old game that looked magnificent 2 years ago, but now - Is reduced to a low adaptation for a weaker machine? Anyways, the game-play wasn't great(Excluding the Ultimate perk stuff, that shit was off the bat! I loved messing with it), and it's only the graphics that got me sitting there stunned... If I was to say anything about the game-play, all I can say is that Nexon did better with Combat-Arms then of what Cry-Tek did with Crysis. /Rant,

    That's something different. + This is about engine features, not the game itself.

    Is PC going to have more capabilities or is PC and consol going to be dead even? I really wish Crysis would have stayed a PC exclusive. 360 needs to give us ODST in return.
    MW2 is shit, prove me wrong.
