I remember the vid where they showed the concept art for that level, they did the artwork good.

Can't play the beta. :/ It says either "full server" or just "connection cannot be established"..

Kickass trailer though! I really like the looks of this thing. :D

I can normally connect to a server it just takes a while to load and lags like shit (cryogenically frozen shit at that).

I can't wait until the performance issues are ironed out.

Wow, I can't connect to any of the servers. :/

They really need to work on the performance issues, but hey that video was kinda cool.

Those shadows seem kinda low resolution... of course I am the only one to notice such things...

Anyway, the video looked cool.

I like it, it has atmosphere. Some of the animations aren't top, but no deal breaker.

The animations are odd, some parts of them are great and other parts are decent. Like Dionysos said, it's not a deal breaker.

Huh? Are you talking about the self shadowing on the complex character models designed for use in multiplayer?
Go play Bad Company or some other game with actual low resolution shadows and come back and tell me those are too low res.

True, but I would think for a video they would max everything out. It's not a big deal at all.

Looks maxxed out to me. They probably don't have a "super high quality" for rendering cinematics though.
