"It's one heck of a way to show off your CG modeling skills, that's for sure."
Black flag still looks very good without that.
It's not as epic but I don't think anyone would complain. However, imagine Skyrim on CryEngine...
It looks worse with cryengine. The buildings graphics look flat. The interior is nice.
That has to do with the actual 3D model of the building and not the engine. I think the point of these "Game X in the Cryengine" is highly focusing on lighting, shading and post-processing.
