Great game but it looks AWFUL on the 360.

Almost looks worse than Far Cry 2, know I shouldn't have been expecting much on such an old console but damn... I would have been fine with the Island split into loading sections if it made things look a little better.

PC Master Race sighted.

It's not bad considering really but sacrifices have to be made.

yeah, so awful. Thats why I find breathtaking views and awe inspiring graphics EVERY time I play. Haven't played the PC version so I have nothing to compare it to. Being a 360 player for years, I would have to say this looks impressive.

It has some deliberate FPS slowdown to accomdate for consoles (like pretty much every multiplatform also available on PC), but it's hardly "ugly."

Hardly ugly? It's one of the most technically advanced games out there.

Remember.... violence is NEVER the answer. Sometimes, though, it's the question... and the answer is "Yes".

I think on my side the generic characters are pretty ugly and lack details but the game is rather beautiful for such an open world.
Not removing this sig till Quebec City get a NHL team!
Does anybody knows who's sleeping with whom around here?

Only thing that looks blah is the generic guys or villagers I think their called that?

Rest of game on 360 is top notch...

Well, that and the audio for all the side mission dialogue is seriously, seriously poor quality. So much compression that there's ringing artifacts.

I don't know if they were trying to save time with the generic look-a-like villagers, but I can only guess they were trying to conserve space for the audio.

Anyone on the PS3 care to comment on how the dialogue sounds on that system? Since Blu-Ray has a lot more space, I would imagine they didn't have to compress the audio.

I wish the environmental audio sounded a lot better too. There's not a lot of depth to it, and the music was just so bad I had to turn it off entirely.
