There is no fixing this. If there is I will gladly pay full price

As a ps4 player I knew I would never get those visuals but I am sad, I preferred the dark and gritty look that the videos from 2013 had over the stuff we have seen in 2015. Must be doubly bad for some of the PC players.

The game doesn't look really good in those screenshots. Anyways, I won't play it for its visuals I'm just looking forward to the story and gameplay.

- Look at the ground textures. TW2 is incredibly blurry in comparison.
- Look at the draw distance. Everywhere you see in TW3 you can go. In TW2 everything you see in the distance are 2D textures designed to look good from one angle and take zero processing power.
- The trees in TW2 are static. The trees in TW3 adjust to weather and wind in real time, so it's not a fair comparison to compare trees in screenshots. TW3 will look better while in motion.
- TW2 has no HBAO or similar higher end Ambient Occlusion making none of the texture pop. It looks washed out in comparison, with less depth.
- Look at Geralt's textures and his hair. Again, TW3 wins by leaps and bounds.
- You are comparing an incredibly linear area that was carefully crafted to a ~30x30 mile open world, and the TW3 still looks better by a fairly large amount.

Sadly this is going to be another game that gets poor user reviews over this nonsense. You know many people are going to rate this game based on what it could of been, not what it actually is. Tomorrow there's probably going to be tons of metacritic "downgrade" reviews from people who aren't even playing the game.

Time for bed and tomorrow i'll be enjoying the game, not caring about any downgrades, and taking the game for what it is. As everyone should...

So people should pay full retail for ....a game for what it is?

Many people are getting this game free with a video card or from the people who have the coupons at a 50% discount. The only two reasons to obtain this game before the massive Holiday Sales in the future.

Or because they like the previous games and cannot wait to play more? *raises hand*
I don't know how you can claim nonsense like that tbh.

And it will all still be because of their lack of insight or..........

Sure some people are overreacting from both the sides/camps .But the fact remains that they lied, and its natural that people will be pissed.

The problem is more severe than it looks like, indeed some people are pissed just because of the graphics, but the root cause here is false advertisement, and the general trend in the industry.

This needs to stop and one way of getting our voices heard is by criticizing online and on other media formats.

Mind you nobody is calling the game bad rather the way the devs/publishers handled the hype train resulting in misleading expectations.

CDPR lied blatantly.
When people called them on their lies they got banned and threads were deleted on their official forum.
Their pr has been dreadful and downright amateurish at best.

Also take note, banning people from your forum (That pre ordered the game) because they are asking legit questions about the downgrade and how you lied about it makes you look like a complete joke and just proves that you aren't capable of dealing with the ***** storm you created.

Also for the last time, it's not the downgrade that has people up in arms, its because you lied about it and tried covering it up.

Eh cdpr sold out.
