Watch any video. Look at any screenshot. It's easily the best looking console game.

Uncharted 3 looks better.

Shhhhhhh. I can hear the footsteps of the SDF getting closer.

Uncharted 3 was watered down from 2. It used a ton of bloom, just like Uncharted 2.

It used a ton of "bloom", LOL.

Okay bud.

Right. Technical details, please.

Hey McClane, your mom also says hi. Menage a Trois tonight! I will be tired for your work tomorrow. Oh, she wants you to clean your room and take out the trash.

So, how did they utilize that effect within Uncharted? I want actual quotes from the development team.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 4, 2012 2:57:18 PM PST
Not even. Uncharted 2 had a smoother frame rate, but Uncharted 3 was definitely the better looking game. Halo 4 comes close, but IMHO, Uncharted 3 is still the best-looking console game out there.

Silly rabbit!

We all know you don't even play video games.

Psh.

Didn't the machinima review criticize Halo 4's graphics for using too much bloom? I've never heard anyone say anything like that about any of the Uncharted games. Still though, they're both gorgeous looking games. It took me a little bit to get used to Halo 4's more grounded-in-reality art style compared to past Halos, but I think 343 did a tremendous job in retaining the aesthetic feel of Halo while improving everything about the presentation.

Hard to really say this without playing it first, but the little bit I saw looked incredible.

If Johnny Cage says so, then it must be true.
It's not like he has a huge 360 bias or something.

Uhh, that scenario DEMANDS bloom lighting.

Stop cherry picking. I'm sure there are more visual effects used that you haven't noted.

I own every console, do you?

It's looking like God of War: Ascension is going to take that title when it comes out.

Wait you have played the game? I am so confused right now. Worlds are Colliding. What the eff is Bloom? Does anyone care what it is. You know what I think: Both UC3 and H4 will go down in history as great games with great graphics. Much like Sgt. Peppers and Darkside of the Moon have or Jaws and the Godfather.

I do.

Heavy Rain, La Noire, Uncharted 3, and God of War 3 all have better graphics than Halo 4 based upon video footage I have seen so far.
