my opinion is that doom 3 has better graphics due to it having a larger mb texture load then half life 2 even when in small corridors... and it has nice bump mapping everywhere and the dynamic lighting is incredible... and we will never see its true potential until a 512mb graphics card comes out because it has a 500mb texture load
thats my opinion.... oh and my Geforce 2 will beat Every geforce 6800 Ultra out there with no problems...
Half-Life 2 has better graphics. You can see the pores in thier faces. Half-Life 2 is way more realistic than Doom 3. So don't you Doom 3 people come in here and try and start crap. Half-Life 2 is way better than Doom 3 will ever wish of bieng. Half-Life 2 smacks Doom 3 with its own flashlight!
Half-Life 2:dpistols: :help: Doom 3
HL2 had great water reflextion and graphics, but it had some graphics that were shit. Like father gregory and his shity textured shotgun. Doom3 definetly had better graphics. The fact that hl2 maps on doom 3 engine look like ok while doom3 maps on hl2 engine look like shit should answer the question. I liked HL2 more though. Also look at a hl2 zombie and at a doom3 zombie and compare.
Doom 3 graphics are a tad better, to some extent. Doom 3 as a game sucked IMO.
HL2 is just awesome all the way around.
if you played with d00m3 engine on the big outside environments of hl2 it would suck... doom3 engine is only good for inside places... although the d00m3 monsters look better!!
D3 makes me feel like I'm in a wax museum...
Dooms 3 has better visual effects but the charecters are pretty blocky, they all have pointy heads, and the textures are not that detailed. Peoples skin is one flat shade. HL2 on the other hand has got some very nice effects but the lighting is nowhere near as complex, but the facial animation I think is the most astounding visual feature in that game. You see the wrinkles in peoples faces form as they speak, you see thier forehead furrow when they concentrate, and it brings an overwhelming sense of life to the charecters. HL2 is ALOT more realistic that D3. I would have to say that D3's graphics are more complex, but HL2's are better.
Uhmm, show me screenshots of pointy characters in doom3. I didnt notice anything like that. Also I thought the texture was better, especially if you comapre hl2 zombie with doom 3 zombie.
And plus...... if its all waxy on you thats because ur graphics card isnt high tech... and dont come in saying you have a 6800........
If the 512 mb cards were out then you would see the textures and how sharp and nice they are.... the reason there so waxy is because the textures have to be compressed to fit onto ur puny cards.... thats all..... and as for Characters.... Doom 3 has better bone structure in the faces.... and bone movement..... and half life 2 has better Facial texture and muscle movement..
