These are from a preview (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/previews/previews_story.php?id=102172) at www.computerandvideogames.com. Since not everyone likes registering at sites, i put up my own links for them:

Sorry about that, I just exceeded my bandwidth limit. I'll try to come up with some new links shortly.

Thanks for the heads up, van_HellSing PL. I assume these screenshots are from while playing the game. That "sticky" compass doesn't look so obtrusive and distracting. In fact the HUD seems overall to be less then with T1 and T2 with the health shields gone. Okay. Thanks again.

Thanks, van_HellSing PL. I am pleased with the appearance of the display and the graphics. One thing bothers me a little is that the thief (he can't be Garrett, can he?) looks like a short thug. Luckily for me, I will be playing in first person.;)

I agree with that Peter, Leatherman and I said the samething, Garrett is a shrimp in those screenies! God I hope not, my image of him will just be shattered. :eek: :p :rolleyes:

Thanks for the links, van_Hellsing PL. Could these be artwork instead of screenshots? I ask that not only because of the graininess but because the positioning of the 3rd person Garrett isn't consistent from one image to another. In some he's in the middle as he should be but in others he's off to the side & in a couple he's actually behind one of the onscreen AI.

Garrett is kinda short--another reason to play 1st person. The first person Garrett is 6'2". ;)

Some people do not have unlimited bandwidth. Better grainy than not at all. Try to be kind, guineapiggy, and things will go much better.

Forget that, look at Garret himself. Hunched over? Whatever. The guy's a hobit!

one of the moderators or devs said that garrett is still 6'1 or so, he is just hunched over and his legs bent in all the shots. Anybody can make themselves appear to be about 5 or so inches shorter than what they are. Either way the pics are good, I don't know what the player was thinking trying to kill the innocent woman, that's just wrong heh.

lol, why is he so short? He DOES look like a hobbit. I guess it doesnt matter. Ill never see him since I wont touch 3rd person.

I get the impression, that the grainy quality of these images is caused by the original method of saving the screenshot.

If you save a screenshot as a *.GIF, and zoom-in, then you'll notice the grains too.

So my guess is, that the guy who took them, saved as gif, and posted enlarged portions of the original, in jpg-format.
