6. Re: Sword of the Stars II Engine Trailer Sep 29, 2010, 09:32 Burrito of Peace
I watched this in YouTube's HD version and I am not terribly excited about it.

The textures look muddy and a bit low rez. N:TJI, while an older game, had much crisper textures on the ships themselves.

Also, when the camera pans around the nameplate on the SFS Minks, the ship name alternately is flat on the hull and then pops off of it to float above it. If that's a feature, it's not well done.

Space is vast and gorgeous and any game set in space that centers around starships needs to reflect that. I agree with the poster a few comments above that no one has yet to capture that like Homeworld and N:TJI did.

Shame, really, given that the 4x formula of build, research, build and kill has pretty much been perfected.
