PCGamer gets its hands on the new Wolfenstein game, which is currently famous for its PC requirements and 'claims' on being a fully pc-oriented experience of graphical prowress, GPU and CPU crushing power, and nazi-bashing glory.
From what I can tell from the stills...it seems to be a dissapointment to everything.
Considering its claims and system requirements. The graphics we are seeing, which are being run on PCGamers famous LPC Gaming Monster, are lackluster.
I mean look at that? It looks like HD Call of Duty 2007.
The textures and physics are crap as hell. Many of the in-game objects are 'stand out' and not smoothed into the background (a trait of older games). There is barely any visible tesselation or parallax occlusion mapping. Color Grading/scheme is bland and generic as hell. And hell, even the guns are piss poor in quality. Half the gun models have polygon shapped curves on the barrels (DX9 days anyone?) despite the hardware suggested requirements and claims. And don't even get me going on the lack or piss-poor usage of lightning, local reflections, or any of the other 'shiny' and 'wooo', and 'ahh' schiit that games add in being mega fail from the peviews.
Warning: High res pictures:
Here, you can see the schitty gun model, schitty physics and enemy models, stand out game-objects, and schitty textures.
Here, you can see the extent of the lighting and 'ooo' and 'ahh' capabilities of the game despite its hardware requirements.
Putting on an agressive ad campaign towards PC Gamers with massive claims, putting out aggressive suggested hardware specs, and fighting Nazis as a hero != a game targeted towards PC Gamers, a well optomized game, good game engine, sales
