As the YouTuber checked out the tech demo, he noted how realistic everything seemed if you didn’t “focus on anything” else.

“Like, when you see the background. Oh man, it’s so trippy,” he said. “It’s the backgrounds. The people are still off, but still.”

While the character models may not have been as up to snuff as the rest of the graphics, he still found a lot to be excited about.
