Stamped Concrete job - Botched - need opinion and advice

See photos of our backyard.  New stamped concrete job that turned out nothing like we envisioned.   Our contractor and the concrete guy both said...."it looks good."  "this is how they all look?"
My wife and I are still struggling what to do.

Look good to all of you out there?  It doesn't to me.  Thank you.

Rob,

That is the way it is supposed to look when stamped. There will be suttle changes with time, like all the sharp edges will go away as more foot traffic goes across it. Stamped can never, and will never look like real stone.

Looks like normal stamped concrete to me.  The only issue I see is a bit of broom finish stroke coming through in that one pic.

What is it you are having trouble with?
