Even that won't make full use of the engine's capabilities as they want to make the game accessible to a wider range of gamers (unlike Doom 3).
The capabilities are there and they will undoubtedly add more features via Steam as time progresses.
To thread starter: To say that the game is "crap" just based on what you believe to be sub-par graphics, is an extremely shallow statement.
