Graphics looks nice enough to me, nothing ground braking but with high res textures and decent models. During the tutorial there are a lot of cutway scenes. It seems that the backgrounds are real time rendered but the actors are not, sort of FMV sprites. It must be seen to understand what I mean.

One last thing before I plunge back into this game, it' s really memory hungry! I've a heavily customized win XP installation (thanks, nLite!!!) which takes less than 80MB at startup. During the game sessions, memory usage soars up to 1.4GB! It also takes ages to load the areas

Back to the game, guys. I'll post you my updated impressions tomorrow
Its actually out or at least some of the pirate groups have leaked it out... I heard the europe version has uncensored breast for you pervs... and the America version got shorted with cards that block them?
