First off I must say that the game is fantastic and easily contender for GOTY. Now with that said, am I the only one that is a little disappointed with the graphics? I mean based off of videos I've seen before, it doesn't look as good as I once thought. I'm in the begining (Please no SPOILERS) but there are some instances that the graphics look pretty bland.
For instance, in the zone when you are about to enter Area 5, the town looks to have little to no textures or just looks plain bad (manhole cover, the police barracde, hell even the military cars). Also, when you're outside of the zone, the foliage looks very sharp and not life like at all. While looking at some leaves on a tree, I spun the camera around and it looked like a piece of thin cardboard. Anybody else feel this way?
The graphics feel more polished later on. But with next gen around the corner: Nobody can deny the current consoles age. For a current console title: It's still in the top (if not #1).
