I think so... even disabling compression on ALL TEXTURES runs on current cards today! I am currently playing on ultra quality and it looks fantastic. high quality vs. ultra quality.. i cant even notice a difference. So I think that a little compression, mixed in with higher resolution textures would have been better. Don't get me wrong, the game looks fantastic. But there are a few low res textures.
I think it has to do with the system they were targeting. They were targeting 9800xt for the high end. Everyone knows the game wasnt supposed to take this long. Now we have super high end cards that came out right before release... my 6800ultra runs the game at 1600x1200 4x/8x at about an average of 50fps!!!!!!!! hmmm... Its not an easy task to go and redo all the textures at a higher resolution.
