  • I love the Borderlands style. Really, really love it.
  • I am a sad panda to not see Muramasa on this list. That was a kickass game in terms of not only gameplay, but the look of it was refreshing and simply gorgeous.
  • Borderlands! The switch to a really unique cell-shading style definitely payed off. It fits the comic-book mayhem of Pandora very well.

    Gonna have to go with Forza 3, its graphics are unmatched in any racing game


    Wrong topic bro
  • I'm with InstraClassic on this one, loved the art style of Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Vanillaware needs to do a game in HD.
  • I'm going back and forth between Beatles Rock Band and Borderlands. Both have a unique art style that compliment the game mood perfectly. I LOVE the psychedelic music videos from BRB, however Borderlands cell shaded gory glory is just as appealing.

    I guess Borderlands wins out for me over BRB, just by a hair, simply because you can take away the music vids in BRB and still have a game. The graphics are way more important in Borderlands.
  • Batman:Arkham Asylum
  • I had to go with The Saboteur, just the black and white areas feel so differently to the coloured areas. In the coloured areas you really feel safe and free. In the black and white areas you really feel the Nazis boot pushing down on you, you feel constantly in danger and just want to keep your head down and do what you have to, and get out.
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum for me, I love the way they did Arkham.
  • Either Murusama: The Demon Blade or King of Fighters XII
    Beatles Rock Band?
  • Street Fighter 4 looks really nice in HD. Love the New style they gave us, Also the SSF2HD Remix art style was nice and refreshing... oh capcom, you crazy sons of bitches.
  • comment removed by me because of confusion

    um...I don't mean to be rude but where the hell is uncharted 2, that game was beautiful


    It's in the best TECHNICAL graphics category. There are other games with a distinct art style ... more so than Uncharted 2.

But in my deafens, realism is an art styli, but anyway. Sorry about the confusion on my part.
  • I loved Borderlands, but MadWorld was so different and hilarious, I have to go with that.

Howdy, Stranger!
