Bad Company 2 “reaching” Uncharted 2’s graphics

DICE is definitely setting themselves up to play with the big boys with Battlefield: Bad Company 2. First they were looking to take on Modern Warfare 2, and now they’re aiming forUncharted 2: Among Thieves.

According to producer Gordon Van Dyke though, no game can claim to have reached the graphical prowess that Uncharted 2 delivers but he explains why he compares Bad Company 2 to Uncharted 2.

“I wouldn’t make that kind of claim,” he said. “Uncharted 2 is an amazing-looking game. But we’re reaching that level of quality. It’s going to be hard for any game to be able to make a claim that they look better. But we are getting to, I feel, that level, where it’s looking very impressive. When you see it – and I’ve heard other people say it as well, so it’s not just me – other people are saying it’s getting there.”

“The thing is though, we have much bigger environments. To even be close, to me is quite an honour as a developer. The one thing I did was, when I looked at their game I was like, damn them! What have they done to the rest of us? I was looking for something where I could say, okay, that we’re doing better. I looked at their vistas, and I think that our vistas, because it’s in game, this is actual in-game terrain you could theoretically take your soldier and walk up to, our vistas are better. Naughty Dog, if you hear this, I challenge you versus our vistas!”

    If they want to be as good as Naughty Dog they should first change the platform they are making it for so only PS3 or PC. X360 is history if it comes to graphics.

    wowwwwww DICE. first of all, mw2 had better graphics than bc2 even though it wasn’t necessecarily a better but still. bc2 was good but no way near uncharted 2’s graphical showcase. this is obviously posted by a 360 fanboy.
