The first Vegas graphics were decent, not amazing, but not bad. These look a lot better IMO, but I am really not concerned about graphics, it just adds a nice touch. Gameplay is way more important.

Personally from what I've seen, the graphics are going to be about 110% better than RSV1, and probably on par with CoD4.

Yea COD4 is as good as it gets and with the original crisp look of RSV1 i expect these graphics to be unbelievable

Well, I've watched gameplay footage that looks absolutely gorgeous, and the game definitely doesn't look bad. And to be absolutely honest, the graphics could be vintage Vegas 1 style, and I'd still play it over CoD4, because as good as the graphics are, Cod4's mulitplayer got old/boring/repetative something like 2 months ago.

I'm a big RBS fan going back to my days on the PlayStation 1, but I'll admit that CoD4's graphics are unparalleled in the FPS genre. The developers of RBS: Vegas 2 have made a point of saying not to expect too much improvement in the graphics (just that they're smoother). Nobody is going to be able to stand up to CoD4's graphics for a while. But, graphics or not, RBS: V2 is still going to be way more fun than CoD4.

im not really seeing that. suer the graphics in cod are better, but they dont look that bad for vegas 2. i wouldnt compare them to a cartoon show....

I can't see it either. There's a definite improvement in game play footage, compared to vegas 1. And having played hitman, I totally don't see that one, at all. Oh well :p

Who cares about graphics, the GAMEPLAY is what you playing games for anyways. Watch a movie if you want good graphics... Cod4 has awesome graphics but crappy and unfair gameplay.

I think they look nice. As long as the game is fun, I don't really care about the graphics.

Also, since a lot of the buildings I've seen are actually in Vegas, I can believe it, because that whole city is metallic looking and play-dohish. :p

Good graphics are a bonus, but I don't think you can let it get to far. You're not playing a live action movie, and like Cipher said, while CoD4's graphics were absolutely amazing, the gameplay kinda sucks.

yeah the graphics are (shall we say ok) there not a patch on cod 4 but the gameplay will (should) make up for it.

but just think if cod 4 had a cover system r6v would be history:confused::boxer

How does the gameplay in Cod4 suck? It had a much better story than rainbow six, much less issues, better graphics, sound, gameplay, I could go on. Rainbow six is alright, but the second one looks like what GH3 is to GH2, a carbon copy with touched up graphics.

Gameplay is CoD is mostly run and gun or hide and snipe. The inclusion of flashbangs made it a little better but it can't compare to the tactical map, gadgets (snake cam especially), cover system, rapelling, and squad controls. Yeah they are different games, to each his own. I'm sure the Halo fanatics hate CoD and R6V because you don't have shields, can't jump for shit, and have no vehicles. You can't make everyone happy, just accept that some people like Halo, CoD, or R6V better.

you need some new glasses my friend. the graphics looks awesome! nearly as good as COD4

Its not all about graphics! gameplay is the most important thing...
Take n+ for example...
the graphics are poo compaired to todays standards, but it has awesome gameplay...

R6V2 is not gonna look as good a GOW but GOW suffered for having such amazing graphics...
I would rather have a bigger, better made game like R6V than a very pretty, short, average game like gow

rainbow six vegas 2's graphics are NOT even close to call of duty 4's graphics.
and graphics (to me atleast) are a very important part for a game. if a game had some good gameplay with sucky graphics the game would not be as enjoyable/fun if it would have good graphics. period.

how can you say the graphics are not even close. i mean to me thats like playing a 360 game then comparing it to pacman from 30 years ago or w/e, CoD is a lot crisper and pays more attenion to detail but RBV2 isnt that far behind them

I gotta go with Bloodreign on this one. And please fully read this before you throw out the fanboy flag and ignoring it.

I would personally go out on a limb, and say that CoD4, out of all the FPS games I've ever played on 360, has the single best graphics. I bought a brand new HD tv specifically for this game, and was no where near disappointed. The detail, the shadowing, these are absolutely amazing. HOWEVER, graphics are NOT the end all of a game. The style of the game, and the mechanics of it are a big factor as well. And as far as comparing the two, I have yet to see a FPS that can compete with the depth of CoD4's graphics. It's been openly stated by numerous sources that CoD4's graphics are a year plus ahead of it's time. However, that does not diminish the quality of the graphics in other games, which are not exactly N64 Goldeneye 007 standard.

On another note. Yes, I think the gameplay of CoD4 was craptastic. Not the controls, or the framerate, but the actual mechanics of the game. Headquarters? Complete poo. I hated it. The perk system? Was awesome until people started abusing some of the more overpowered ones. The spawn system? I once spent 15 minutes of a game....actually playing for about 2. I WATCHED MYSELF SPAWN ON A KILLCAM. I've spawned in the middle of air strikes. I've spawned directly in front of a helicoptor.

Myself, I'm a fan of tactical shooters. Rainbow is totally my cup of tea. I don't believe that the amount of sugarbuzz you've got going for you should be a factor in a game.

yo guys, I think the grapics are great, the only thing I do dislike is the effect they put on called "grey scratch" this is what gives it that nitty gritty look, which at times can look a bit dull, but other than that I can't complain

It wasnt over used in vegas 1 like it was in Gears of War though.
I remember when i 1st had my 360 and a 14" lcd tv..no HD
it was hard to tell scenery apart from bad guy,
bcos everything was samey looking.
But now i have a nice 32" sony bravia i can..

but my point was it was over used in GOW and correctly used in Vegas 1

The pictures taken for r6v2 are severely resized killing their quality, and you're trying to compare it to an almost full resolution picture of cod4? Of course COD4 is going to look better between the two, but you can't compare apples and oranges. Get me a full resolution pic of r6v2 and we'll compare. I bet it will look much closer.

I think Alex did a pretty good job of wording it. Save your hate of the graphics until you load em up on the HD.

yo guys, I agree with the other guy, the graphics are fine, stop worrying, at the end of the day, they may not be as excellent as CoD4 but don't forget about the amount of gameplay RSV offers, like co-op, where as CoD4 did'nt, think about the good points,

Well, for some, graphics are becoming a much bigger factor in the games. Unfortunately, rubberchicken lost cred when he's comparing GoW graphics to CoD graphics, stating how much better they both are than vegas.......yeah, that's a negative.

I never said R6V2 graphics were better than GOW's
All i said was, in short...
There is too much gray in GOW
And i think vegas1/2 have the right balance with the shades and tones of the colours
