    This is my only disappointment so far, granted I haven't played the game yet. Before Crysis came out Oblivion was the standard in awesome graphics. HDR was kinda a big deal. I realize though that with a big budget game such as this, they need to appeal to the majority of gamers that use consoles. The good thing about continuing with the Gambryo engine is modding support. This game will get better and better. :)

    Exactly. My only problem is there's no way I can wait for a modder to come out with remapped, hi-res textures. I'll HAVE to play it before that :)

    Around 2 hours and 15 minutes to go!! soooo excited!!!!
    I hope this game looks beastly on a 32" HDTV?!?!

    I must ask though, Is the graphics quality going to be the same as the console?? I hope not :eek:

    ugh! Gimmie your SSD would ya?? I could use with one of those for BF3 too! unreal how slow the load times are on these ancient HDDs!!!
    I hope that the graphics will be lovely, It must be pretty!! Looking forward in checking out the blacks in this one! I only ever took notice of that in games since I bought this HDTV :p Must be an edge-lit thing!

    Ah they were the days!!! I had the Radeon X800GT instead of buying the 7600GT and a nice AMD Athlon 64 2.0Ghz!!! Ah brilliant!! HL2 loved it anyway :p

    Well it looks nice there alright, That rocky textures on the lower left is looking a bit dodgy there but I will ignore close ups I suppose!
    Trees are looking well! Probably better off keeping them at a distance too xD

    this game looks dissapointing. In all honesty i think the textures on crysis 1 were better, their seems to be absolutely no depth to this game when it comes to texture maps. Which a huge dissapointment for me. They werent even that impressive in ultra mode.

    ew MMO fail please elder scrolls dont ever do the above.

    Maybe I'm just being critical, and I'm sure the gameplay is f'n amazing.. but those graphics as a whole are nothing to be excited about... The trees at any kind of distance look like shite, the rocky ground textures look like something from 5 years ago... Looking like graphically the game was consolized, from what I've heard atleast gameplay is still top notch.

    On yarr note, games cracked along with the update already.. Regardless of ur opinion on yarring you gotta admit the scene groups are damn good at what they do. (Even if it is stealing money from game devs..)
