Pretty much sums it up. The people saying this is one of the best looking open world games to one of the best looking games ever have got to be on some drugs. Sure some scenes look pretty dang nice but the majority of the game is the same ole stuff over and over again.

My biggest problem are the trees...I swear their trunks are hollow rubber or something. Even in high speed winds I've never seen real trees come close to how they are in this game. Slight breeze get's to like a 90 degree angle LOL!

Yeah, not ugly just unimpressive. Especially after all the hype CDPR created.

Don't forget Bioshock Infinite. It was less a graphics downgrade as it was a EVERYTHING FREAKING SINGLE THING ELSE downgrade! No open world, less detailed environments, less natural interaction with Elizabeth, no stealth, less powers with Elizabeth among many many other things...slight worse graphics too I suppose.

You can add star wars battlefront to that list ahead of time. Chances that it'll look like the trailer, which claimed ingame rendered, is slim to none. I remember bf3 and bf4, the tech demos were amazing and truly beautiful. Now, they're not quite as good.

I hope elder scrolls delivers!

I highly recommend using this SweetFX/Reshade preset. It makes the game look so nice by re-balancing some of the colors and removing all the yellow and orange tint. Also, shadows are more pronounced as well as dark areas are darker.

I read that the downgrade was hospitalizing people due to dehydration from crying too much. The whaaaaaaaaaambulances have been working overtime trying to get them all in.

And I think most of that is unfair and just betrays a vast ignorance about game development.

Precisely the problem. Others are conveying their disappointing whilst he is on some blind vendetta. He hasn't got a clue what he's talking about, ask him why they might have had overdraw limits on some of the earlier videos or what method they're using to render the foliage, and watch him deflect with some self-righteous nonsense biggrin.gif

The reshade preset is grainy as hell, there are better ways of using SFX

Oh man i forgot about this one. The story was good but that game turned out to be my least liked bioshock. I felt like i never faced a different enemy, they were all bullet spongy and just kept getting more and more spongy. You never face the flying thing. I was sorely disappointed.

I agree with a lot of Mack's assessment of the game. Though he is a little harsh on some things, his summary is good. I like the game a lot though, mainly because i love the witcher universe and his description of it being one cinematic is spot on. That's partly why i love it.
