That looks exactly like the water in Crysis in DX10 mode on the last level. I was very impressed when I saw that ~1½ years ago.

Implementation of Perlin Noise was very impressive.

Not enough games use procedural textures like Perlin.

Wow cant wait later this year for DirectX 11
I'm no more impressed with DX11 as I am with DX10. Might look good on paper but after 2 years we see the state of DX10 (which I call a big fail). It's part of the reason why I'm still running XP (along with the fact I still like XP better), and I still don't feel like I'm missing a thing. A lot more needs to happen with the DX's than what's currently being offered. I wish opengl games would make a come back. I still think it could do everything DX does (graphic wise).

Question: will the 200 cards out now be DX11 compatible. Or will you have to buy a 300 card later on?

Yeah, I remember the water in Instincts. I really can't think of anything that touches it even now. Hmm, I remember the game looking pretty arse apart from the new missions they added to it which looked really good but ran like complete crap. Probably the worse framerate I've ever seen in a 360 title.
