It's understandable tho, it's U3 engine used in an open rpg, with big spaces, nice textures etc etc. I mean it's not gears of war with it's narrow spaces and railroad tracks ...

You get texture popups in GoW too if you back track just a small bit. Same thing happens even in Bioshock from time to time despite it's lowres textures if you run around and die/respawn.

Texture streaming on a 12x dvd drive ... and if you got a samsung one then its prolly even worse.

What we need is an engine optimized for the 360 to overcome such "flaws", and Im sure it will happen eventually.
