In-game graphic seems to be downgraded a bit:( It does not look that great as before:-(

I tend to agree, but some of the screens are very impressive still.

looks better...but mainly because the stages are much more impressive...either way looks incredible, especially the modelling

I watched the trailer and if it is hinting at gameplay (smashable environments with amazing physics), its just superb.

The gameplay bits in the trailer were very impressive as well, I especially liked it when she threw someone in the air and then someone else tried to kick her but she grabbed his leg and broke it.
Combat looks superbly fluid.

And the blood seems very artistically done as well.

If only PS3 was released with these games.

Lol, that's just in your head. The in-game graphics haven't been downgraded at all, upgraded mostly. You've only seen one place before these screenshots & vids, so you can't say they've downgraded anything. If the arena looked worse than before, THEN they'd have downgraded the game. Still, I really can't understand how anyone can say they've downgraded anything. Of course some parts might look less impressive, but these vids still have massive landscapes that look more impressive than anything I've seen so far in any next-gen game. How anyone can say the game has been downgraded is beyond me, imo the game has had a noticeable upgrade in graphics (Nariko's character model especially).

EDIT: And OMG do the cut-scene close-ups of Nariko & Kai look mighty impressive. Almost FFVII: Advent Children quality (at least the character models, though you can see some rough edges)

EDIT #2: And BLOOD. Now everyone can just shut up about the subject. It was getting annoying when many just whined about the lack of it.

To me it looks the same as before, but there have been quite a few that have said it looks to be downgraded, but i guess its all down to individual opinion..

It's not that it's been downgraded (I honestly think Nariko has been upgraded a bit) it's just the first trailer blew everybody's minds away and everybody expected a certain level of visuals even beyond what the first trailer showed.

Anyways, this game looks and appears to play incredibly fluid. Even if it were downgraded a bit I don't think it will effect the games popularity or sales.

P.M If you were planning to buy this game (or any other) before but now think "DOWNGRADE!" and are no longer interested....your just sad.

I think they've either reached that level or surpassed it. If your talking about the VERY first trailer at E3 when the ps3 was first announced. But the game looks great regardless of any minute downgrade, if there was one.

Looks great. If Sony can get the price of the PS3 cut in half I'm onboard.
