I think the engine is poorly optimised. You try running it on a lower end PC (even one comparable to a PS3/X360 in spec) and it will look FAR worse. The graphics degrade too dramatically when the specs of the machine are lowered to consider it properly optimised.
I think give too much credit to the engine... it requires too high of specs for what its accomplishing.
