This is actually not true. The preview says that things in Risen are already in better condition than Gothic 3 a few weeks before release, not "when it shipped" as you put it.

3. The graphics in motion completely blew the author away. It looks even better than Gothic 4.
This is once again not quite a correct representation of what the article said. The article says: "When it comes to the visualization of mother nature, PB has once again put up an extra effort. What is already looking pretty in the pictures, although not as technically superior as the official Gothic 4, simply took our breath away during the live presentation."
It does not become clear in this context whether the author really thought that Risen looks better than Gothic 4. After all he did acknowledge the technical superiority of Gothic 4. It is simply unclear whether he thought that Risen looked better or not. It is certainly a possibility but we'd have to ask him to find out. The blanket statement "It looks even better than Gothic 4" can not be derived from the article, however.
