Crosshairs changing color over an enemy is pretty common... I don't see the problem with that, really. It helps you know you have a distant shot lined-up, when it's hard to squint and see it.

As for auto-aim, the vast majority of console games now use it in such a subtle way you can't evn tell it's there. Most of them just slow the reticule a bit over an enemy, or track the enemy slightly after you line up a shot. The days of obvious "snap-to" aiming are mostly over, though a rare old-feeling game sometimes still uses it.

Also, it is optional for most games, and after years of dual-analog experience you won't really need aim-assist and can turn it off.
I gots one of them high powered gaming computers with an EVGA GTX 480 video thingy and a Q9550 processing device and also one of them Windows 7 64 operating programs with 4GB of some Corsair 1033 DDR2 ram.
