    Once the rest of the game is added around this, however, and the systems
    have to contend with an entire open-world to keep running, it becomes
    much harder to do. ”

    Two best things they could have said. At the
    end of the day, the game still looks great and the graphics are not the
    highlight of this game. Yes it’s disappointing. But whether or not
    the graphics are what they showed in 2013 should not make this game more
