the reddit leaker also said the game was the best lookin game on PS5 and then he released videos that dont look any better than whats been shown already. its just hyperbole. ignore it.
Hyperbole? What kind of cynical take is this? He also lists the negatives and shares many of your qualms about the game. He ranked visuals a 4; with 1 being TLOU2 and 10 being photorealism. It's a very fair and reasonable opinion from someone who has actually played the game.
