Warhound beats Crysis in big acne scars

Will you look at this poor man's face?  I'm all for realistic imperfect skin texturing, but this latest bid by Polish developer Techland seems a bit too severe. Compare with this screenshot from Crysis and you'll see why I'm making a fuss. This looks like asphalt! Even the filthiest acne-prone teenagers don't look this bad. Dermatological shortcomings aside, Warhound does promise a few interesting twists to the FPS formula worth noting:

Slip into the skin of a mercenary, charged with eliminating various targets with the four corners from the sphere (Korea, Africa, Balkans, South America, etc) ... it will include/understand some RPG elements and will ask to keep an eye on its finances throughout the adventure in order to be able to buy the material necessary to the escapades as weapons, ammunition or of the vehicles. 

Meanwhile, The Freshmakers are perfecting the FPS jungle sim, so it's hard not to hold this up in comparison. Crysis is going to be such a tough act to follow; my heart goes to any studio stuck trying to share shelf space with it. Hopefully the reported role-playing elements will be enough to help Poland. The game is slated for a year end release on the 360 and PC.
