The environmentals alone went from a C- to an A+ from what we've seen already. So did the game's rendering engine.

Gameplay - well, we'll see in beta.

cat surely i dont have to tell you of ALL people that a game looking pretty doesnt make it good lol

Yes but since you're so eager to make broad generalizations, wouldn't having those aspects going through such an improvement speak well for the rest of the game?

Because that aspect of the game was never in question to begin with, it was the only thing the game originally did right, and SE has always done graphics better than anybody else in the industry, the fact that they are more than willing to showcase their strongest point, instead of their weakest and the one that will determine weather or not the game flops or succeeds is interesting. When they start showcasing gameplay and end game mechanics, then we will have something to go by.

I would argue that no, they didn't really get it right. Between cut and paste environments, the horrible horrible game engine, and vanilla environments, no they didn't get that right at all. The new Gridania/Black Shroud looks like a place I want to explore now Smiley: thumbsup
