I've read many times (as I'm sure others have too) that the visuals of R2 on console is pretty bad. But even on PC, there was a lot of criticism over the visuals - not that they were terrible, but generally a few years behind.

Personally, with these types of games, even outright poor visuals won't matter to me if the gameplay is fun. 'Fun' to me are games like Ultima VII, Ultima Underworld, Arx Fatalis, Gothic 1 & 2 (and 3 even), and Risen 1 to name just a few.

I come from the dinosaur pre-internet era where it was automatically assumed that any RPG would have visuals years behind other genres so I'm sort of hard-wired to put visuals in second and third place on my list of gameplay priorities. I do have to admit though, that the weird foliage 'bursting' effect was really irritating and took me a while to ignore.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
