Portal 2 graphics legit?

Would probably have been better if you actually posted screenshots of your own, rather than just saying it "Looked worse" without any grounds for comparison.

Many games look worse when you actually get in and SEE them, can move around, see how it functions in motion, get close to textures, see how static lighting may actually be, even if you see a nice reflection or shadow in a screenshot...Etc.. Portal 2 was a Source Engine game, as with any Valve game, so it looked alright, but it wasn't setting any graphical standards or feats of technical prowess.

Hell, I ran the game's co-op in Split-screen maxed at 3360x1050 on a 5770 and E8400...

Any static image has potential to look impressive without being given context.


Yeah that's about how my game looks :/.

Just downloaded Radeon Pro, looking at all the options

Well when you take a high res screen shot then shrink it down to a small portion of a web browsers window (with the natural touch up's) obviously it's gonna look much better than actually playing the game.

Also like someone else pointed out, Source games look pretty good at first glance. It's when you really focus on something up close and inspect it that you start to realize how dated that engine is.

It's called downsampling coupled with low-res pictures.
