    It's the best looking open-world game no doubt about it. From both artistic and technological point of view.

    So subjective. By what measure? If you mean by the human models and facial movements then Metro is 10 years behind. ME1 had better facial movements.

    In terms of environmental fidelity? Maybe... draw distance wasn't that great.

    I think the only thing that can compare is maybe Witcher 3. When I can see detailed ground shadows cast in the distance by clouds, and volumetric fog/lighting all interacting at once, again with huge draw distance I can't think of many games that come close.

    If anyone playing on vulkan has the annoying mouse lag while turning and pressing the run button, change mouse settings to direct input to remedy this.
    The scope of this game is amazing and yes, I think it's one of the best looking games in a long time.

    Yeah, the draw distance is real trash

    Imo it has better everything - higher model and object quality, higher texture quality, etc etc etc etc...

    The same can be said for anthen and shadow of the tomb raider. Not to mention they all have MUCH better performance.

    That draw distance is extremely small... you can see for kilometres in RDR. Its maybe 1km at most in that first shot.

    /facepalm

    I have 10 billion dollars, so because you only have 10 million dollars, you are poor. Love that logic...

    Just because rdr2 has a bigger draw distance, doesn't mean that metro exodus has a short draw distance. And a long draw distance doesnt equal good graphics - in fact i'd trade in a large portion of rdr2's draw distance for higher quality everything up front, because alot of it is quite poor quality.

    Opinion isn't trolling. Not accepting an opinion and calling it hate, however, is.

    Does anyone know what those bars are at the bottom of the screen? Don't think they've always been there so not sure what I did to add them! :)

    3800x and 2070S, no issues for me either.

    I think the game looks great. They captured the lighting and open feel of the western landscape.

    Best sunset I’ve ever seen in a game,

    Maybe the launch wasn't perfect but I'm glad technical issues are being fixed. Wouldn't be surprised if performance improvement patches are released in the near future.

    I want to install The Witcher 3 again, even if that means I probably won't touch it (played it too much). I just want to see those two games' icons side by side! :3

    I may even have the game directory one over the other.

    I have not had very much in the way of problems myself. I did have an issue on my laptop with a 1660 Ti not launching until I updated the Nvidia drivers, but that was no big deal. My main system with a Radeon VII has been fine overall. I played 5 hours and 33 minutes before I even finished Chapter 1, although about 1.5 hours of that was spent in the benchmark and testing settings in game. I have reached a combination of settings (Medium to Ultra) that offers about 50 FPS AVG at 4K resolution, which is pretty playable with a Freesync monitor. The visuals are about 90% as good with the FPS being 150% of the 34 FPS I get at default Ultra.
