Well, the individual textures are nothing special and don't hold up well in close-up (another XBox concession I assume). However, the overall look of the game is very nice, and the lighting/shadows are impressive. FarCry does not employ shadowing anywhere near the level of Thief 3, which must account for most of the framerate discrepancy.
