Vagabond knows where it's at. I completely agree that what we've seen so far is completely acceptable.

Anyway, if there is too much focus on the graphics, you end up with something like Unreal. Man, that game looked so amazing when it first came out...in fact, it still looks freaking amazing when I crank up all of the features. But it just was never very fun to play. If I ever got very far in that game, it was just for the visuals. And that didn't keep me playing or coming back for more.

I would have thought much better, but the gameplay will feel exactly the same (like AI etc) cause their beein made in parrallel meaning they'll both utilise each others features! NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IMO graphics is secondary to gameplay a close second is the multiplayer quality of the game.

i also believe beheading & Screaming foes are a must

Gameplay comes before graphics every time with me. I got JK and QII around the same time. QII may have looked better...but I've played the whole game through twice. I've played JK through to the end a lot more, and JK is back on my hard drive right now, together with MotS. I've even fired up Heretic II again. It's all in the gameplay.

Although I want JKO to look good (and it certainly does even now), I'll be far more interested in how the game plays.

That is why I was so concerned about the omission of the moral play - the choice between Dark and Light side - because it was a fundamental part of JK's singleplayer game.

IMHO, Raven should be careful that they don't strip out those elements that were unique to JK and made it such a different experience to other FPS games. JK was a game that taught you about consequences of actions within the game, and that is something missing from almost every other FPS so far. There should be rewards, but there should also be consequences, IMO.

Yeah....with double the polygon count that will make it amazing!! It will also double the specs in most parts.....will will mean for me......i'll need a new computer...except for my GeForce 3. Actually i dont think a GeFoce 3 and a P2 291Mhz really go together!

Call it a guess but you would have gotten better performance in-game out of a GeForce 2MX and a 800mhz processor for less money than the GF3

What's all the fuss about the garaphics? They are the best graphics anyone of us has ever seen in a Star Wars FPS before. And furthermore, as many have already posted, the team at Raven has only worked on the game for a few months(three, if memory serves). For someone who seems so interested in Jedi Knight and Jedi KnightII(or else you obviously wouldn't be here), you sure are going to great lenghts to trash it. So why don't you do us all a favor and try to lay off JKII's graphics? I think that everyone on this thread can tell you that it's not because the graphics are top-noch, it's because, even though they may be surpassed, they are the best graphics we've seen in a Star Wars FPS before.
