Ok, lets not get carried away here. I've still yet to finish Arcania, but the first two Gothic games were some of the best rpgs ever made.
And nothing makes the shadows look great. You can either have nice looking shadows up close that disappear 5 feet in front of you or you have blocky shadows up close but for more distance. Bethesda absolutely dropped the ball when it comes to shadows.
Having said that, I don't think they alone make the game look horrible. Overall I think the game looks pretty damn nice.
