As we’ve already reported, Far Cry 5 looks and runs incredibly well on the PC platform. However, it appears that the game’s physics have been severely downscaled compared to Far Cry 2; a game that was released ten years ago on platforms that should – theoretically – be less powerful than current-gen systems.

The Witcher 2 is one of the few titles that looks better than its E3 demo

E3 is the biggest gaming event and we’ve seen in the past developers faking their games. Games like Motorstorm and Killzone 2 are two grand examples of games presenting CG trailers as videos featuring in-game footage.

The Witcher 3, Watch_Dogs and The Division are examples of such a thing. However, there are also games that look just as good as their E3 demonstrations, and there are fewer occasions where games can look better than their E3 demos. Continue reading The Witcher 2 is one of the few titles that looks better than its E3 demo
