As to what I think... honestly I don't care for it. The added graphics fidelity really highlights the problems with R3D and gives the world even more of an Uncanny Valley effect. Everything from the obvious unnatural repeats all the way up to how the shadows interact with the grass just feels synthetic to me. And that's not even getting into how the attempt at naturalness clashes with the cubic nature of the Minecraft world.
But I know full well that I'm not the target audience for this so, ya know, take that with a grain of salt.
