Well here's a hope that it will look better on PC than the latest X360's ****ty video.
In a recent interview, Gearbox's Randy Pitchford revealed that the game will have DirectX 10 support.
http://www.pcghx.com/aid,645702/News/Randy_Pitchford_interviewed_about_Brothers_in_Arms _Hells_Highway/

Randy Pitchford: Yes, we support DX10 and we have no problems with that. With DX10 we can do some things and that creates some new options for us. There is a lot of different ways you can write a pixel shader. We have an eyeball shader that has like 300 instructions in it. Because sometimes you get in really close and you want to see the glint, a modeled iris and you want to see the water wells up when you want that emotion. Another cases is, you hold back a little bit because you don't want to hold up the performance on instructions that don't matter. You are looking at PC version right there (Randy points at the PC Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway is presented), I actually do not know what hardware that is. I think that it's an Nvidia chip in that box. An Nvidia 8800 chip.

Interesting interview .. read it.

DX10 support doesn't necessarily mean better graphics at all. It just means it'll run in DX10. That said, Gearbox is a very ****ty developer that always lies and releases tons of bullshots.

I present "Evolution of a game" :

Stage 1 "The Lie" (first 'shots' of the game):

Game looks worse then those screenshots above... have you seen the new videos? Gah they look horrid and the whole destructible cover system is a joke. In the video you see a bazooka round not even denting a stone wall...

They could say this game Supports DX12 and comes with your own private butler and Vegas hooker with soldiers who will actually walk out of the screen and I still wouldn't buy it.

The whole WW2 FPS is getting to be played out at this stage as well.

I don't think so... I love WW2 themed games but there all too similar to stand out. Theres so much they could do with WW2 and they don't even try. I would love to play a WW2 themed spy game or maybe a Sniper game based in WW2...

Just change it up abit...

Just played the console demo of this... better looking than I thought it would be. There's a cool vibrancy to it, which I appreciate now-a-days as most games look drab and dark.

Still, it doesn't look amazing by any means, and honestly the gameplay feels very tired after three great Call of Duty WW2 games and some Medal of Honor titles.

Its a shame they are holding back on the MP portion on the PC, still looks like a descent WWII shooter.

Gonna pick it up for sure, got it on pre-order. (nana2)

I'm sure quite a few would be won over by the vegas hooker.

if dx10 was a joke in crysis how can it be a success in this one ?

Just played through the game on 360 and it was pretty damn awesome in my opinion. A bit clunky here and there but the visuals were great and the story line was extremely compelling. The game is mainly story driven and while I didn't enjoy the BiA games in the past, I had a great time with this one.

How can you guys even claim this game looks "terrible"

I haven't seen these videos, but those latest screenshots look fine. Just because a game doesn't have amazing graphics doesn't mean it wont be fun to play.

Game just arrived for me today (legal) and no DX10 support. No ingame AA option although it can be forced from the Contol Panel :D
