You guys are already dooming the game which is even more sad. Graphics are not everything and it looks way above average to me.

i think it looks pretty spectacular, very life like. Rather than HL2 where everything is shiny.

I agree, you guys are acting like the game is horrible and you haven't even played it. Even if you don't like the style of the graphics does not mean you will hate the gameplay. I personally think the graphics are awesome with the exception of the guns which can easily be reworked before the games release.

Woah, some one is a little picky when it comes to graphics. If you think Half Life 2 and this looks bad then you need help. Maybe you should try designing a game that looks better.

Edit: fixed a broken image link.

For an 05 game it looks weak, almost like Quake 3 level tech (think Call of Duty). I think Half Life 2 looks way better. Although Riddick, Doom 3, and Far Cry look better then both (HL2+Stalker)

Thats why i said "some of the screenshots" , not all of them . i'm optimistic of course but i just have the fear of downgrading the IQ/features of the graphics for the performance sake (like what happend in Doom3) .
look at this shot for example :

Probably .. but how would you know if this is going to happen or not ??
in anyway i really hope they do rework the weapon models because in these screenshots they look rubbish*.

The game looks ordinary, why?
-Ugly ass character models, yes they look ****, 2002 ****
-Crap animation (did you see the dogs running over the plains in one of the movies :thumbdwn: )
-Huge weapons, I'd like to see the action now kthx, not a weapon taking up 1/2 my screen
-Dodgey shadows, and effects

I will no doubt play the demo, and I will most likely be very pleased because at this stage it looks like ass and I am being overcritical. :)

Let me guess, you don't play consoles do you?

Weak? How can you even compare this to anything on the quake 3 engine?

It's a shame you people will miss out on a potentaly awesome game becasue you don't like the style of the graphics.

Also I think the reason many dont like the way the guns look is because they look too real in a way. We are use to not real world shiny and glossy plastic which it doesnt seem they use alot.

I still think it looks good. Those screenshots look kind of compressed, and let's not forget about the premise of the GAME itself.

I personally reckon that the screenies are Awesome. One of the most Photo-realistic FPS screenies i've seen. I really cannot wait for this game.

I thought the game looked good a year ago (kinda like HL2), but now it seems a little too cartoony for my tastes. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but the game looks like it's trying to look realistic and that's where it kinda turns me off. I wouldn't go so far as to say it looks like Call of Duty, but honestly some of those screenshots don't look that much better. I would expect more from a game in 2005 in the graphics department. This doesn't mean that the game will suck though. I hope they don't water the graphics down...

I'm kinda on the fence with this one... the weapon models look kinda weak (and they take up waaay too much of the picture IMO), but some of those pics really look pretty nice.

Of course then there's the one SH64 posted: :(

Oh I'll most likely play it, and rate the game on it's own merits. Graphics are only a small part of the experiance.

Real guns dont look like that... Those guns look to silly... They look like something from a bad vampire killing movie...

**** no guns look like those...

And no guns shine like that...

I think they graphics are weak... And since they changed the gameplay i think that will suck as well... But maybe we will be surprised... Still think the FEAR is a HELL of alot better game than stalker... Isnt it in russia? Who makes a game in russia? :P
