For me the graphics are pretty good. I all ways have them on fantastic unless I'm hunting, and then I switch to ok. It probably has to do with my computer's graphics card (Acer Aspire 5515). But my friend has a mini lap - top and her graphics are just downright bad. For her the water doesn't move, and everything looks very pixel like.

When I first played WolfQuest, the graphics blew me away! I could see vivid reflections in the water, the texture of the ground, and the views were breath-taking! It was like sight seeing without having to go anywhere! I love it!

In fact, now the graphics kinda scare me... I took screen shots of the best scenes and found similar photos of the same locations and they looked almost exactly alike :shock:

My computer is new and runs fust. I choose the fantastic graphic and picturesque is really amazing. The only problem it takes my computer nearly a second to load fancy water but it doesn't really matter.

Mine aren't terrible - but they're not fantastic. I can't have the fancy water & shadows or grayscale scent view. But I don't really think it's effected the enjoyment of the game much.

The first time I got the game, I was so excited about all of the graphics! I thought that the "Fancy Water" was amazing.
Though, I was a little disappointed when the shadows/fancy water would make my game lag. The graphics are pretty good, compared to some other games i've played. I'm sure they will get better as WQ improves. I usually set my graphics to the "Fantastic" setting.

I have my game on fantastic with fancy water turned on. I only turn on shadows when taking screenshots because it makes my game choppy.

My graphics are pretty good - though I prefer rather fast computer than amazing graphics. XD

I normally have it on Fantastic, with trees and grass as high as possible, and fancy water and shadows, and it runs pretty well, except on multiplayer, where fancy water is useless. Basically, I have the best graphics I can get.

I used to set mine to good or simple. I was satisfied with it. My computer was too old and had too many problems to bother upgrading it so I could actually have the option of fancy water/shadows. I'm hoping my new one will.
I like discussing deep things, playing video games, and mentally torturing myself by studying C# even though I'm not a math person.

I think I figured out why my game gets choppy or freezes with high graphics. My computer needs to be cleaned out of some large files. I know that in the past I could run WQ at its highest without a problem. The only thing I can think of is that my computer has a lot less memory than before.

I usually use simple, but I don't have fancy water or anything. But when I use Game Booster, I can use Good graphics with not much glitching :) The game looks like this on my computer:

(I wish I could get a new laptop, because my laptop that I have now is going to break... Well, I guess I'll buy a new one for myself as christmas present :D and wish I can see fancy water in my maybe future computer)

My graphics seem to be good most of the time, especially in Single Player. Rarely do I have the ability to walk through trees (to some it is a good sign for graphics), but I normally don't have the grass set very far.
In MP, that is a different story. I walk through all the trees, and when I turn while standing next to one, it moves through my body. :shock: The water in AM is black until I toggle the water settings.
Um . . . I don't remember anything else that stands out to me, but I'll be sure to edit this post when I remember more.
Overall, my graphics were okay.

my graphics seem to be bad.... whatever I put it on "simple good fast, fastest, beautiful, etc." it doesn't look or seem different. I lag whenever I move my wolf sideways or even run. glitching just occurd not to long ago in a chat... it annoys me to the bone, and I get frustrated. any tips?
