if anything, it looks like 3% better, maybe it's just cause I haven't played it in 7 months, but the hail/beards look sort of better. Lot of other stuff, armor textures especially still looks like musty butt though. --- http://i.imgur.com/wq8E1t2.jpg
Although it must be noted that the HD texture pack does not enhance the visuals of the original game. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is a big game that is impossible to be fitted into a single DVD9 disc. Instead the visuals in Disc 1 are downgraded to save space for Dark Arisen expansion. The players must install Disc 2 HD texture pack to play the game with its original visuals. --- J > K > W Fact.
As always I think the answer is somewhere in between. I've been playing Dragons Dogma all week in preparation for this and there is a slight improvement to the graphics. It looks slightly brighter and sharper to me, although not anything ground breaking. Load times are also improved. --- Gamertag: SlashedPlum The less you bet the more you lose when you win.
