I would guess that the Xbox One X wasn't a high priority due to not representing much in the way of install base, hence why it doesn't seem to have gotten much fine grained tailoring. Still, at least they didn't skimp on resolution, unlike some releases where it's a match for the weaker PS4 Pro. 1080p to 1440p is around a doubling of pixel count.

I still feel like the last gen version as a whole represents a decent effort overall; performance isn't perfect even on Xbox Series X, so getting it running acceptably on last gen can't have been an easy task.

It represents a mediocre and barely acceptable effort at best, considering it was delayed months just to get it to this point. Certainly not enough to push a skeptical buyer like me into paying full price, for all the reasons I already mentioned.

If you happen to be more interested in this game or just feel a lack of other games to play (as you've often mentioned), that might affect what you're willing to compromise, but I already have too many games to play as is.

I'm not saying you have to buy it. I just personally wouldn't consider this a mediocre effort given how demanding it is on much more capable hardware. It was designed primarily for PS5 and Series X after all, something had to give to get it running on systems with much older chipsets, less and slower RAM, and mechanical hard drives.
