I thought the same thing when I first saw the graphic, but once I got in game and started running around...I forgot all about it, great game

Graphics? I'm too busy hiding from katyushas to look at the graphics!

I just watched the release trailer and the graphics are same or worse than Call of Duty (the first one) which was released in 2003. Even if the graphics doesn't affect the gameplay it makes me wonder why anyone would release something looking like that. Is there a specific reason to make the game look 10 years old?

That's quite a favourable review.

I've just booted and received a ~200MB patch, hopefully it solves the annoying crashing problems and causing 'Computer Browser' service to restart.

Playing the actual game the graphics are better then the beta but still dated. For a city reduced to rubble its got a lot of open ground with little to no rubble or other debris spread around. Reminded me of a lot of COD2 mods where the maps were let down by a lack granularity and detail. The real let down was when I went to play MP - 5 local servers showing with only one having players...For a new game at 8pm rather disappointing. Played the SP German campaign until it got to the tanks and then gave up. Can't play the Soviet campaign as it's locked presumably until the German campaign is completed. I had many crashes as well and even getting into the game the first time took a good hour as the PD install/check kept hanging.

I don't know which servers you were looking at, but there were at least three full servers last night!

I'm sure the browser is still somewhat broken.

Often have favourites that won't show up when I do a refresh using no filters. (Including Cat's server).

If I see a busy server now, I just favourite it and dive into the favourites area to connect.
