Is it just me, or does the screen look very water colour styled? It was in several of the screenshots, I feel it ruins the games beauty. Although A mate who is playing onthe PS3 says he cant see it. Now, is this a 360 only problem, or is it something widespread, that only certain people can see? Could be dependant on screen size I suppose.

On my 15" SDTV. Everything looks sharp and clean and colourful. It's basically as good looking as Ratchet and Clank PS3, but more realistic graphics and R&C was 60FPS whilst this is 30 (yes, it's definitely noticeable)

It's a pretty high quality SDTV, because I remember playing games on some 20" 4:3 SDTV downstairs and it doesn't look as good. SD resolutions work great with a good quality small TV

Before I got my 40" HDTV, I had a 20" SDTV and the PS3 looked good still as well.

The shadows sometimes look a little weird, but the only real problems I have had with the graphics are when I'm in the air. I was flying a chopper over Algonquin and the wester portion of Dukes and the north/western part Bohan didn't render until I fly a lot closer to them. The other big problem I had was trees when flying. I fly over Middle Park (fairly close to the ground and I was going slow) and the tree's didn't appear to render right. They looked like card board cutouts with 2 cross sections and nothing filling them in. It kind of was a buzz kill.

Oh yeah, and there are some annoying popups, but I can't complain because there is just sooo much stuff that has to be rendered.

The water color filter I guess is just a taste thing. I personally like it for the most part.

IMO, they only gave it 10/10 because the graphics from the other games were never really that good. and because it's GTA.

if they pitched the graphics against other games, it would have probably only ever got an 8 or an 8.5/10

I think the big key is that the gaming mags realize that this is a HUGE open-ended world with a ton of detail. Expecting perfect graphics for everything would be a bit absurd.

However, I'm starting to get annoyed with stuff popping in and out. I have several times run into stuff in allyways when they didn't render until I hit them. That and lots of trees and etc keep popping in and out depending on where i stand, etc.

Also, I think at times the filter (water color and distortion thing) can be a bit too much at times. I was in that park on the water where the Sprunk sign is (I think it's of Franklin St near the East Borough Bridge) and looked through the big stationary binoculars at Algonquin. The filter made everything very blurry and it almost looked foggy (there wasn't any fog though). I also noticed that as I was moving the binoculars, it sharpened up (like I could see the individual wires on the Algonquin Bridge, etc) and I thought it actually looked better than it did with the filter. I just think that it might be a bit too much at times.

Edit:
I was just playing and there was one spot where I really didn't like the water color effect. I was driving a car with a severally damaged rare bumper that was metallic. The water color effect made it look like plastic because it didn't have that really shiny texture that metal has. That is probably the one spot where I don't like the effect. It tends to screw with metals.
