They're very nice but I'm not getting the "epic scale" which makes the game stand out for me.

What I mean is: the first time I saw the Maxos Temple, I was blown away. It's the single most greatest building design I've EVER seen in ANY game. The way his right hand broke through the design, the beard, the horns, the eyes = PERFECT! But to see it from afar, to see how monstrously huge it really is ... it's awe inspiring. I'll take some screenshots too, and try to keep the idea of how big the building really is.
