All I see is Aloy adding some attachment to spear while camera circling her.

No focus on enemies. This seems like an attempt at adding cinematic flair to the fight.

Personally it just breaks immersion.
Oh right. I thought you were referring to the shot were it goes slow mo when she’s aiming her arrow mid-air.

The fighting attachment cinematic is pretty cool in my opinion, adds a little “flair” to the action but I can see what you mean when you say it breaks immersion.

Can any of you point the finger to what makes this look so next-gen?
To me it looks like a PS4 game with high-res textures, nothing more.

Illumination is not making anything special and looks very flat, and the enviroment doesnt look specially alive either.
Someone give this man a pair of glasses, or some anti-troll pills, whatever comes first.

Looking wonderful. Will double dip on this and play it in PS4 and again on PC.

Useless response with no counter-arguments.

Being a cross-gen game, I'd say my post is a very reasonable scenario. Also sorry if I dont let hype blind me.

There really is no counter-argument to your opinion that it doesn't look next gen. Your opinion is what it is.

My counter argument is:

The lighting does not look flat, the world feels very much alive lots of geometric density (just watch the previously released gameplay) and it does not look like a PS4 game with better textures.

Good enough?

Low quality shot but the facial details are really impressive. I can only imagine what this would look like on a large 4K screen.

Also nice to see character and facial animations significantly improved over the previous game.
