I'm not ignoring these - I'm just not sure when I'm supposed to be replying to them - as a lot of my replies will be quite reviewy, and the review embargo ain't here, yet.
As for the graphics, I'll reply with knowledge I gleaned from previews: there's a lovely, misty glow to the world at times, that's perfect for creating the religious, heavenly atmosphere. It's used for effect, at dramatic times, and definitely isn't there during combat.
But the world is lightly stylised, for sure - with an artistic smudge to to the design that feels completely deliberate, unlike the disconcerting blur of, say RAGE. Or even Dishonored's close-up artefacting on doors and fabrics. You'll notice a couple of better textures loading in as you approach, but the game is never rarely anything other than stunning to look at.
AN EMBARGO APPROACHES
In the first three hours that I played for the preview, naturally.
THE EMBARGO RETREATS, SCOWLING
(Of course, it's going to look better on a ten billion dollar hyper-computer. )
