Posted some screens and it looks like they're real, how bad does this game look?

Won't post them again because apparently they are "spoilers"

What screens?

He posted screenshots from the leaked footage of sequence 1.

Also, answering the OP's question, the game doesn't look terrible at all, it looks beautiful.

No, it doesn't look terrible. The screenshots in question just showed problems with draw distance. The owner of said screenshots may have taken them before textures had a chance to render properly (pop-in), but that's just conjecture.

Please wait until you've actually played the game before judging the graphics.

Liberation looks better than those screens, awful.

But you're right I should wait until I play it before having a hissy fit

I managed to see the screens before the thread was taken down and got to say they looked pretty bad. Not saying the game looks bad because I can't , just those screens for whatever reason looked poor quality.

20 minutes? The first 4 sequences are up on Youtube.

It's the Spanish version of the game so I have no idea what the characters are saying, but that's probably a good thing.

I don't know what screenshots you are talking about man, but I've seen most of the first 20 minutes and some gameplay in spanish posted on youtube and the game looks great. The only graphical aspect that could have used some improvement is about the vegetation textures, especially the grass. Other than that it's a beautiful game.

Well, to be perfectly honest with you, the game will have its quirks, BUT those gameplays you saw were probably without the day 1 patch, because the game`s visuals have been put to question numerous times ever since the release of the first gameplay trailer..

I`m waiting, though. Youtube is not exactly the best place for quality measurement..

There was nothing like this in Revelations because the cities were very dense, so there was always something close to the camera, or there was always something blocking your view of the distance preventing situations like those shown in the screenshots.

It wasn't youtube it was just some screens, found them on gaf who got them from a spanish forum or something.

True but the screens look extremely bad, especially from some of the gameplay I've seen.

I've seen them, not everything but just to see what we can expect once the game is out. Also, is it just me or does the guy with the spanish walkthroughs cut some parts of the game? If you've seen them.

Which were captured from Youtube or someone else that has the game, which is still not the best thing to use for measuring quality. You have to bear in my mind that the internet uses countless compression methods to screens and videos, plus you do not know what he captured those screens with. It could`v been a microwave as far as I`m concerned..

The beginning is amazing. Everything is epic--in a new completely different form of epicness compared to the previous games especially AC2. I would wait to play the game in high definition on your TV or PC before judging something like a screenshot or youtube video. Besides, I think people are expecting these awesome new gen graphics that they've never seen before. There will be some vast improvements and things introduced but don't set unrealistic expectations for game that's on a 2005/ 2006 console.

But even if it was taken with something very poor, it just doesn't look right, I dunno I guess you have to see them.

Whether they are minor or major. Or even something one person doesn't consider a spoiler. If something is shown that you would need to play the game in order to find out or see. then it should be covered by a spoiler warning as spoilers are very subjective and everybody has different opinions on what is or isn't a spoiler.

This thread is ok for now... But yeah people need to start being careful or they may find their posts/threads being removed and at worst taking vacations from the Forums ;).

I'm not expecting anything next-gen, before these screens I thought the game looked exceptional, but I will wait and see but the screens have put doubt in my mind.

Well, it is foggy out. And to be honest AC's draw distance or whatever has never been hugely detailed but that's never bothered me. I think the only two open world games that do have very detailed graphics for locations off in the distance are Red Dead and Skyrim.

And that is kind of a big SPOILER for people who haven't watched any of the footage so u may want remove it of put a spoiler tag

Firstly the draw distance is fine, secondly that is spoilers. Not because of the area, but the other thing.

Honestly, from what I've seen... Game looks friggin' amazing. Only thing is the floating objects which are probably gonna be fixed with the patch when you get the game.

Honestly, I almost mistook a bit of it for a scene out of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World to be quite brutally honest. Yea, it looked that good.

Sound to me like the OP is looking at Liberation screenshots, especially if he thinks Liberation looks better. I saw a screenshot of Connor in Liberation and it was not as good as I was expecting him to look.

That's not to say Liberation looks bad, but it's a portable device, not a console.
