    Amazing! I also love that John Noble is in this game, he's such a good actor.

    Wow, that is very awesome technology!!! This could ultimately change the way games are developed. At least the people in the games.

    That's some nice detail, though we've seen this in Half-Life 2. Alyx's facial expressions were breathtaking considering the game is really old these days. And same goes for Crysis. Facial expressions there were really advanced as well.

    Shame it will probably be with pretty shitty graphics on everything....because of consoles.

    Awesome realism: that's the best i've seen!

    Light years ahead of the likes of Final Fantasy, IMO.

    I thought the ME2 has some decent facial and head animation, but this one takes the cake!!! :) Cannot wait for the game!!

    i love it

    why compare this to anything beforehand, this is a somewhat new technology, a different approach to this kind of thing in games i think, can't compare it to final fantasy or mass effect

    the graphics might be shitty for a pc but hey, its something new and I will wait for it, this is why I love rockstar, where most devs are being pushed to make closed enviroments and are being pushed towards making only profits killing their imagination, rockstar is opening their minds to do different things taking chances, we don't see that as much nowadays.

    Rockstar games have never been about graphics. L.A. Noire is a open world game and console exclusive.

    Remember, that is a 2001 title! Being light years ahead of 9-year-old tech isn't really something now is it...
