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.

Dermatological shortcomings aside, Warhound does promise a few interesting twists to the FPS formula worth noting:
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.
