That was my first thought on this was how bad it looked... but looks aren't everything so maybe it's worth trying out.
Well in engine Unreal Engine 4 lighting are awful, it should have VXGI but ARK: Survival Evolved is well thought out game. The game shouldn't try to make lush crysis-like world and should focus more on gameplay, better lighting would be awesome.
It looks really good on the PC, but even then it has performance issues unless you have a high end machine. My biggest problem is that it's a sandbox at the moment, with end game content still being added. As long as you go into it with the understanding that it's early access, you should have a lot of fun.
Gameplay and Fun > Graphics and Res I just hope the final version the frame rate is stable that all.
I got 740 hrs on Ark, if you get a friend or 2 to play with ya, its crazy fun, just try to find a server thats been fresh wiped early so you aren't too behind the rest of the tribes. Don't join a tribe that hands everything to you, its more fun building your way up.
