The game regularly shifts down to a lower resolution that is _very_ jaggedy, blocky and fuzzy to look at. You still have the real-time lighting, shadows, and bump-mapping but it all looks really fuzzy. This game looks really low-rez on HDTV. This doesn't change the great gameplay and atmosphere: it must be said that the fighting/boxing interface is pure fun. It is fairly original in design, easy to pick up, and you'll want more games with this type of combat. The only other fault is that you can never run in this game and the walk speed is pretty darn slow. Enemies can run, but you can't. It doesn't wreck the game but you will wish for a run option by the end of the game. As many have said, the game isn't particularly difficult or long-lasting so some may want to rent before they buy. Really, this is a great game but I wish the graphics weren't so obviously low-resolution.
