E3: Battlestations Midway trailer

Eidos released via the Marketplace this quite well done trailer of Battlestations: Midway. The game's concept is interesting, and it doesn't look bad.

The water looks good but then they ruin it by having overlaid textures of ripples and foam from the boats cutting through the water.

I would prefer to see some cool displacement mapping going on in these games.

As long as we see the planes only in the air it looks quite good, but other than that i am not impressed

While it could be fun, the shading engine doesn't really have a lot going on - the lighting's flat and overly bright and the textures are fairly basic. It looks a lot like a bunch of models maneuvering around rather than actual craft. There's just not much atmosphere.

Probably the best ocean water I've seen!

these are not the final graphics !
I saw it in action,and it's looking really nice, the water is much better than this, the buildings have new textures,great bump maps,and it has some really nice post effects!
But the main thing is, that the game itself is very addictive! I'm eagerly waiting for the final version :) Coming in October.....
