whoa...this might be one of those games that even with poor gameplay it will be still fun to use, if it has good gameplay we could be looking at one kick ass game :D

I don't know... the truck picture isn't very impressive at all to me... the picture of the car looks pretty good... but not amazing.

Works fine for me too...
And that really looks amazing. They could use those pictures to sell those vehicles. Not 100% real but its deffinitely the closest I have EVER seen.

Somehow I think its the same deal as with most games though. Initial amazing shots to grab people's attention, but when it gets released, itl look like GTA3 ;)

I highly doubt those screen are real time. They seem to have alot of indirect lighting (that's what makes it look softer). As of now there is no indirect lighting algorithms that can run in realtime. Maybe they have everything pre-computed and it looks nice for that shot. But precomputation in indirect light looks terrible when things start to move. So either it is fake, or it will look bad in motion.

It looks good ,but the lighting is incorrect all over the place. you will notice instanly something weird with the illumination of the humans in the right side of the street ,including the sport car.it looks like photoshoped.. or the work of a video editor.. the game seems to be using similar techniques that Hl2 to get "photorealistic graphics".. is where you render the textures in raytracing with Professional animation software and "atach" them in the game polygons. the problem with this technique is that it will looks like fake. like a composted image , in the case of dynamic enviroments the dynamic reflections it will looks weird ,not real. personally i dont like precomputed static lighting ,used everywhere..in games. i prefer more perpixel lightings instead used..it will look a bit less "photorealistic" but the lighting will be more correct. the Nvidia Garagedemo (time machine) is a good example or nice looking graphics with accurate lighting and nice looking reflections.
