Well.. WOW! I'm actually impressed! If this is in-game then it certainly looks good enough for me! I liked the gameplay in the first Battlestations, this one looks enjoyable for me too.

May not be the finest graphics, but I still like how it looks. It doesn't have the overusing of shiny metal and such, wich so many titles do. It looks more natural this way. A bit like half-life 2.
Also, the cockpit view looks amazing, especially with the lighting.

I didn't mean that the graphics are *bad*, but I don't think the game looks incredible either. The game takes place out in open sea, so they should be able to crank out some more. The framerate seems to hold up though, that's always nice.

With that in mind, the images are in PC resolution so the footage could be from the same version.

I agree with Manager, and holding the framerate up is the least that we could expect with those graphics.

Graphics are more than i was expecting. Midway gfx quality was already satisfying too me. Abscence of framedrops and/or screen tearing is always a plus (considering even top titles as GoW2 and Fallout 3 didn't escape these problems). I gave Midway a high review score and still consider it to be one of the finest RTS games on console. It had a certain Operation Flashpoint grandeur with the ability to pop into any vehicle/plane on such large battlefields. I'm expecting Pacific will be at least equally enjoyable.

About the game

    KORNdog Maybe they'll use trophies incentivise it? "Brushed horse 2000 times - bronze trophy" "Wrapped up warm 5000 times - silver trophy" (9 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog if it doesn't make much difference it's great from my perspective, so that would be ideal. But its going to make it hard to convince people to do it if the rewards aren't worth the tedium of it. (11 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think they kind of need to make the negatives of not doing it impactful out of necessity otherwise it undermined the entire thing. (13 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: I don't see any reason to incorporate the survival systems if they aren't impactful though. If you NOT eating or NOT drinking doesn't really make any difference, why include it at all? (14 minutes ago)

    AndreasZ94 After rdr2 i hope they start trying new ips again (34 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 If this game sucks im gonna be very sad. Loved the first one, I ve waited 8 years for a sequel and its been 5years sincethe last rockstar game.No in between games like la noir,mp3 so it better be good (39 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @KORNdog: Obviously it depends, even if its done well im sure some will still find it tedious. But like the camp stuff making it optional was the right move because this game will havea broad audience (49 minutes ago)
