    What are some of the best looking games to come out in recent months other than Crysis. I havn't been spending much time gaming and I want to test out my new rig with some serious graphics other than Crysis because I have it already and it bores me.

    half-life 2 has to be the best looking system in the fact that it can run on almost all stock computers at high settings. (for its time)
    fallout 3?
    and, for its time, max payne 2 blew everything out, and was a pretty high fps system too.

    They did a pretty nice job with "The Witcher".

    FarCry 2 has some of the best lighting and shadows I've seen in a game.

    Black and White II looks real good. The water, creature, and sun effects are spot-on.

    World in Conflict is also excellent.

    Stalker CS, probably the most realism I have seen in a game.

    GRID had pretty good visuals for a racing game. Also, I know it was mentioned before, the new Tomb Raider game has some very very good visuals.

    Yes i would not say the The Witcher either but it whoops ass over most games due to gameplay and the novel it's based on.

    Fallout 3 has some pretty graphic's kinda like Stalker i love old old used worn look in a game. Were as HF2 Crysis CS COD 4 they look nice but come no were near Stalker and Fallout 3.

    Holy hell that is a lot of games.

    I would say of what I have recently played I would say Far Cry 2 and Dead Space. Does anybody know what engine Dead Space is on.

    Oh and Left 4 Dead is totally sweet, graphics and gameplay. Awesome fun and I have only played the demo.

    Left4Dead looks nice to say its a source game, so does team fortress 2 - my favourite though, after crysis has to be Bioshock - that water! ooft, makes me all warm and fuzzy inside :D

    Fall out 3 - Graphics are awful. I've seen that game running on high settings on a 8800 Ultra.

    Farcry 2 - MUCH better. Shading it awesome and I can't really fault it.
