Don't believe Call of Duty videos. Remember the infamous CoD3 ad campaign? ::

I thought PA looked good, ran like ass, but looked good. Looks versus performance wise it's probably below chrome though.

Far Cry and Doom 3 were both a revolution for graphics

Half-Life 2 wasn't that spectacular, only saving grace is it ran well on my 286 machines.

TR Anniversary on PC looks worse than Legend on PC (with next gen content)

Invisible War was a grey, small leveled, blurry mess from start to finish.

UT3, allthough I play it a lot, the texturework is very weak.

Eh, though it's widely debated, I think that there are a lot of good texture work in the game and some that's flat out awful


Like how one area looks like this



Then another wall looks like this









In all fairness, few games are perfect though in this regard (I think for it's time, HL2 came close) and even crysis suffers from the low res textures like some rock surfaces and what not.
