I don't know why Robin Williams showed up but I'm glad.

And *bleep*ing epic.

I think the problem area will always be the eyes and to a lesser extent, the area surrounding it. Whenever it made an expression of surprise, it just looked very wrong.

I think they need to implement an eye movement algorithm or something, that causes the eyes to move very slightly all the time. The fact that the eyes seem still as glass orbs when not looking around, when real eyes move slightly all the time (usually one isn't aware of this in their own eyes) makes a big difference between glassy-eyed stare and realism.

This is very impressive, though I think what impresses me more is that Activision did it. This is a company that was more than willing to stand-still for 8 years with games like Call of Duty as the graphics world evolved around them. Here's hoping this means they are taking next-gen seriously and want to make a huge play towards having good games, with good gameplay and good graphics.

Looks stunning, but the mouth (and the stuff inside it) still looks weird as hell.
