Well concept art is just art. But the trailers? o.o
I don't have to specify which of these are old and which are new, because it's obvious, but I'll do it anyway.
You can do it anyway, but what you like isn't exactly what I'm likely to like either. I could try using different examples, but that would take the thread off-track.
You've also taken different shots from different videos that show off different areas, save for 1-3 shots.
Someone saying it looks ugly is just their opinion though at the end of the day, me not liking the current style all that much is my own say as well, but saying "objectively" is hard, considering that the artwork itself is, well, subjective, unless you want to tell me that the Mona Lisa> virtually every piece of artwork known to man, and then you'll have the biggest argument of the century on your hands.
Avoiding to point out why you think it looks worse now would more easily derail the topic. Because instead of discussing the graphics, which is perfectly fine as the updated visuals were the main reason for the topic, you end up debating things like general artistic subjectivity and honesty.
Yes, I mentioned in my post that there were not a lot more comparable material from the same areas in the trailers aside from example 1-3. Though it's not difficult to understand why someone would think that nothing but darkness in the background is less visually appealing than an actual landscape. Or the golden staircase vs the bland white one.
But since you're criticizing the inclusion of shots from different areas, let's focus on the comparison shots in the same area.
And here's another one.

I think it's undeniable that the game looks significantly better now.
But if you think differently, I'd be very interested in hearing why you think so, from the comparison shots in the same areas.
I wouldn't have made the effort to post all those trailers and images if I didn't want to hear what you think and why.
Maybe a bit more so now than before, because you told mZuzek "I do dislike "I'm being honest" when it becomes dishonest. Please, leave the dishonesty outside the door and just flat out tell me what you're thinking, rather than dancing around the point you're trying to make."
In your original comment you used the term "tbh". Though you didn't explain your reasoning in your replies.
