Don't complain to me. I don't care.

I think the staticality (yes, I'm making up words) of the image doesn't help much. Overall effect will probably be a lot more plausible when in motion. They've also got at least another couple of months before release... I doubt that any images that have been released are quite the "finished" product yet... it's the sort of thing that I dare say they'll be tweaking for as long as they can get away with it.
