Yep, the Parallax Mapping in this just owns, bricks on walls just look so damn realistic. Sun shadows and grass shadows also really really improve how the outdoors looks.
This is probably the best sky we will see until Crysis comes along with its Volumetric clouds etc.
IGN are smoking something to give this 7.5/10 for graphics. Yes to make the graphics look good u need a very high-end system, but hey, this will probably become a benchmark game for graphics in reviews
