    I have Alan Wake and looking at the visuals on my TV, Uncharted 2 is far better. Cars in Alan Wake lack that extra amount of detail and there isn't the same amount of detail on their faces.

    Is this a joke? Alan Wake isnt even a HD game, it runs in 540p or something along those lines. Uncharted 2 is about 40x better looking.

    Yep, that's what the game's like. The game runs in 1080p anyway, don't know where you people have got your info from.

    Looks pretty sharp, but not as sharp as Uncharted 2. U2 bags it still with various things around especially the moving object/persons type things.

    Having played both I would say Uncharted 2 looks a bit better, but not by much. I do like the lighting effects in Alan Wake though, and the story is better. Pity it's so short.

    Yea, I'd definitely say Uncharted 2 from the looks of it though I still haven't played Alan Wake...still waiting for my copy in the mail.

    1080p? You sure?

    Perhaps you're a misinformed fool who thinks he knows much more then he actually does? Perhaps?

    My fav line from the article...

    Alan Wake's native resolution is indeed 960x540

    Alan Wake is basically in Standard Definition like a PS2 game. In fact, the majority of the Xbox 360 exclusives are all SUB-HD.

    That why it says clearly that it runs in 1080p/1080i/720p on the back of the box? Hmm? And it runs in 1080p on my TV?

    And i could tell people you're a smart person, but that would be lying. Have a clue about how systems work, especially HD ones. Its being scaled to 1080p, everything on 360 can scale to any res. Its actual native res is HALF that of 1080p, 540p. Since High Definition begins at 1280x720, Alan Wake is NOT a HD game, just like final fantasy 13 for 360 (PS3 one is HD).

    Aah, didn't notice the native resolution there at all- my mistake.

    I was talking to one of my mates who has it too, and he said it's got the best graphics he's ever seen o_0

    Well, being that it's posted in the Playstation section, I wonder which one more people will favor?

    And are visuals really all that important? I found Uncharted 2 to be way too short, sure it looked nice, but I was left wanting a lot more.
    Also, for not being an HD game, I find that Alan Wake looks really nice.

    The topic is about a visual comparison.

    Threads like this make me sad, sometimes we really forget the point of games. I am playing the shit of Monster Hunter Tri and thats SD resolution.

    You are right. Who the hell gives a damn about resolutions or any other shit? Yes its eyeapealing when you see uncharted 2 graphics but seriously you people become snobish. Im still playing with Overboard on my PSX ^^
