Aww, Aion does not look as good. Not sure about B&S and FF though. Tera do look better in many ways, but it far too often have silly stuff that seems to be taken from old Nintendo games.

I honestly think Aion's and Tera's graphics are a clearly better than GW2. 

 

I would even go an say that Rift is on par with GW2.

 

Blade and Soul and Arche Age beat them all though, by a clear mile.


Tera has other art-work style, so is taste-base :) Aion graphics are still good, but I don't think they are better then GW2

 

 

 

And let me tell you something. I don't know why, but there is  BIG difference between those screen shots and the one I made, in terms of quality. But I think is because I resized them since the original screens were to big.

Graphics wise TERA blows this out of the water, We are not talking about Art style, we are talkin about Graphics and TERA simply shits on this one easily. Also from what I Heard TERA handles a larger number of players Easily compared to GW2, People who had 100+ people on screen and even 500s say that they bearly get any Lag even at max settings. In GW2 there were a couple of people with High end PC who experienced Hard FPS drops and Lag.

What are you talking about GW2 was never about graphics, they are passable at best, ive just spent the last 4 hours playing and they are a "slight" improvement over GW1 and leagues aways from likes of AOC, TERA or RIFT.

It ranks really low on my graphics meter. and pretty much everything the OP said I mimic,  there is an ass ton of optimizations to be done here.

My roomate looked over my shoulder and pretty much said that game looks like a bad water color painting, no depth to anything.

Common sense isn't

4/27/12 9:45:43 PM#45
I agree 100% with your impressions. I have played just about every mmo out there and when I logged on the first thing I thought of was EQ2. The movement is disgusting the amount you turn when when using A and D is so small it's ridiculous (can you change this?) and when you press an ability you actually do that ability 1-2 seconds after you cast it. I even rubber banded a few times. I was really looking forward to playing a thief but with the movement it seems dumb to play anything but a strong ranged class. Overall very disappointed at the moment.

IM pretty sure your one of those people that equats bright colors to awesome graphics.  There is nothing amazing about these graphics.

After spending the last weekend in Tera I almost laughed out loud when I logged into this game I actutally couldnt believe how poorly rendered everthing is.

As I said, is a matter of taste, but I do enjoy tera graphic too. I don't know about others, but I did not run into any FPS problems so far, even on most over crowed areas where players ( and they were lots ) did events , I did not drop below 25 FPS on max settings . With an i7 920 , 4 GB of RAM DDR3 1600 , GTX 560 Ti ( I know, I need more ram :) ).  Anyway, I do enjoy GW2 graphics more then alot of other games , but/and stop trying to make people to have the same opinion as you.

As for RelytDnegel , I don't know what computer do you have, but saying you thought you were in EQ2 , does NOT make any sens to me :) And about the skill lag and such, yes is frustating to play a close combat char, when the server is lagging! Don't be dissapointed! Patiance! Is Stress Beta! Lag will be gone and soon will rain with diamonds ! ( j/k about diamonds rain :) )

To me it seems like they have based there graphics, and movement, arround WoW. But yeah TERA deffinitely has better graphics, compare both on max settings and theres no comparison, in completely different leagues when it comes to graphics, Tera without a doubt better. But having said that it does depend on actually gameplay so who knows, personally i prefer TERA, alot more, but GW 2 might be a good side game to play, very occasionally, if bored of everything else.

still does not look as good, And check the other picture that I posted, That is from Ingame and BTW, that first picture I posted is what it would look Ingame regardless. If you played the game with full graphics you would know that much. Oh btw If only i had a Screeny of the Elin Area.... It would pretty much make everything you say as far as graphics goes Invalid. But sadly I don't. Do try to check them out, The graphics is simply ahead regardless of your Opinion. I'll give you an Example.

Lets just assume that I like Runescape's graphics Soo much, Now Can i say that Runescape's graphics is Better than Crysis? Its unthinkable and illogical. You can say that You like GW2's style but graphically Speaking it doesnt come close. Art and graphics are 2 different things.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

4/27/12 10:28:13 PM#53

I can see what you mean about the graphics.  They're not for everyone.  I happen to like them but to each their own.

I haven't yet had much issue with movement but have notice some sluggish performance.  Have some minor lag every so often but not enough to annoy me, yet.

I do agree about the cutscenes.  I'm not a big fan of how they did them.  I prefer how GW1 and LotRO did them.

 

I definitely disagree about not being fun.  I've only played for about an hour or so, but it's been a blast so far for me.  I haven't even gotten to WvWvW yet and am looking forward to that.  Chomping at the bit to get back into it!  Right now the servers are down for 30 mins. :(

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

Rather then starting a new thread, I'll just post some early thoughts from my experience so far.

First of all, I didn't have any problems logging in initially, but I didn't get home till 6pm server time.

Character creation is moderate, not great but not terrible either. acceptable.

Environment graphics are nice. Once again, not stellar, but enjoyable.

The lag isn't nice, and it makes my actions seem sluggish, which kind of makes gameplay seem detached.

The world is immense. Alot of games seem crowded, but the GW2 world seems more proper, a nice balance.

dynamic events are AWESOME!!! Even though there are alot of things that seem slow, the world changes around you, and you need  to be prepared. I was casually feeding some baby bears some fish to complete a quest and all of a sudden there was a bunch of enemies running in beside me. I'm talking dozens. One second I'm minding my own business and the next I'm in a BIG fight, and not doing well at it either. At level 3, I am in a fight that you'd never find in any other mmo until much later levels.  We all fought hard and I died several times. After it was over, there was a message up saying my participation was "gold" and the DE failed.  This is going to be a big reason that I will love this game.

Wasn't going in expecting much but here's what I noticed from the get-go:

1) Graphics feel lite.  I dont know a better way to describe this other than it looks like none of the objects have depth, everything looks and moves a bit clunky and feels one-dimensional.  I don't understand what everyone was talking about with the game looking incredible, etc...to me it looks like a cheap clone of eq2.

2) Movement is awkward.  Don't know what else to say but the animations are off.

3) Sluggish performance.   As bad as Vanguard at launch? Almost.  Not at all the smooth feeling we saw with GW1.  Feels like they lost whomever was optimizing the GW1 client.  Doesn't feel near ready at all.

4) Cutscenes are shallow and lack depth.  Reminds me of Vindictus (which I am not a fan of).

5) Not fun.  Couldn't wait to just log off.  Maybe I'm just tired from work, don't know.

TL:DR: First impressions turned me off. I am going to step away from the game to try and clear my head and try again a bit later.

Note: These are just first impressions.  I'm known to change my mind after more exposure but this is initially what I thought.  I am not trolling so please take this as just one guy's impression.

It's true thats its just a Beta, but they have been working on this for how long now? And its supposed to lauch sometime this year isn't it? It's probably not going to change that much. I found it very MMO'ish to be honest - all the talk about it not being like previous MMO's? They do a good job at approaching it differently, I'll grant you that. Go here, kill this thing, collect these widgets. Sure, they disguise it well, but its still pretty much same ol', same ol' - albeit in a very nice costume.

 

Dynamic events are pretty sexy though, but I do hate the fact that I can't have a quest log filled with stuff to do. I keep getting distracted from my current task and never finish anything - and often forget where to go back to. What do you know, it turns out I actaully miss having a log full of quests to finish and them showing on the map hehe (One odd thing I noticed was that people tended to pad camp respawnable event bosses over and over - not quite what they had in mind I think).

Really is an organic world... hanging out in one area you can see the world telling you a story without a quest window telling you or some long cinematic. The combat is everything I hoped for. I have found lots of bugs, lag, and crashes. I think beta weekends is not enough. They really need to move to full time testing. All that aside I need can see myself playing this game for many years and I am not a GW1 fan. I hated it to be honest. I plan on getting as much play time as this weekend will let me. Over all great job ANet.
